In a world full of unpredictable weather, having an Outback Trading Co. duster on hand is always a good idea. Outback Trading Co. makes two dusters to accommodate different needs you may have at any time of year. Regardless of what rains come your way, you will be covered with either the 100% cotton oilskin Low Rider Duster or breathable poly Pak-a-Roo Duster.


So, what makes these dusters different? The Pak-a-Roo Duster is designed for lighter rains. This duster can be folded into a self-contained backpack so when the clouds clear you can pack your jacket away and continue with your day. The Pak-a-Roo Duster features a 2-way zip in the front along with an adjustable hood which can accommodate a helmet.

When heavier rains come, the Low Rider Duster is sure to keep you dry. Outback has been perfecting the design of the 100% cotton oilskin Low Rider Duster for over 36 years. The big difference with these two dusters it the material. Oilskin is made from a 100% cotton base with a treatment of oils and minerals that make the fabric waterproof. The cotton base makes the oilskin jacket breathable and when treated with Duckback Dressing will last for years to come. The other big difference is the cape which is designed to wick water or snow away from the wearers body. The Low Rider Duster features dual snaps up the front and is lined in cotton. There are also many accessories that can be added to your Low Rider Duster such as a removable hood and a Wool Button-In Liner to keep you warm in winter months.

While these two dusters have a lot of difference, many of the functional features remain the same. Both the Pak-a-Roo Duster and the Low Rider Duster have leg straps to keep your legs protected from rain along with a back gusset to ensure your back stays protected while riding a horse or motorcycle. Both dusters have a drawstring waist, plenty of pockets to keep your goods safe and dry.


Now that you know all of the difference between Outback’s Dusters you can be sure to stay protected from heavy rains in the perfect jacket for you!
