Detailed Description

In 1881, Abner J. Tower developed his Fish Brand mustard orange Pommel Slicker. The material was basically what many of us have known as oil cloth, which had an aromatic fish smell. It was more flexible than the rubberized material that Goodyear patented in 1844, so was still much more desirable. Wyoming Traders created a fabric specifically produced to replicate the original linseed oiled slickers, but to have modern attributes (and no fishy smell). The unique cotton muslin material is hand painted with waterpoof acrylic latex coating and will not crack when cold or stick when hot. As the fabric is not made of plastic or nylon, it is more durable and can be easily repaired if torn.

The Wyoming Traders waterproof rain slicker is split for mounted use and sized large enough to cover the entire saddle; ideal protection for inclement weather. The historic styling features a double bib front closure with sewn-on metal buttons; one set for riding and a closer set for walking. It has a traditional red wool collar that snugs around the neck and two flap pockets. Please note that these are men's sizing and designed to allow room for warm layers underneath. Most sizes available in both black and camel.

ALMOST PERFECT FOR THE JOB 3/21/2017
Have used one of these for several years riding the range south of Billings, Mt. working on the TX Ranch. Have found coat works better than expected, but could use slight enhancements. 1 add leg straps to keep slicker close and 2 Velcro or ?? to tighten the cuffs close to riders wrist. Love how the oversize helps keep saddle and pant seat dry.

PERFECT FOR THE JOB 10/3/2016
Bought one many years ago to wear when riding horses up in Montana at the TX Ranch. Totally protects me as well as the saddle. Would give it 5 stars if it had cuff closures and leg straps. Excellent product, wears well.

Love this slicker 5/6/2016
I bought one of these slickers at the Bull & Gelding sale in Red Bluff, CA. It does run big. I have a size small and it is big but I like it that way too to cover my saddle and my saddle bags. It is pretty warm too which is nice in wind and rain. I found it to be more waterproof than the oil slicker I used to have.

Totally Waterproof 11/28/2015
I bought one of these at the BCHC Rendy. It is the only true waterproof slicker or duster that I have ever worn. It does run big but I like it that way to cover up my saddle and my saddle bags.
