DUCKSBACK Zippered Jacket

  • Wiggys › Introducing the NEW Ducksback Material!

 Product Description

This is a finger tip length jacket. The fabric is the most water resistant non-coated or laminated fabric I know of, hence the name DUCKSBACK—as water runs off of the fabric like water running off of a duck's back. Completely vapor permeable.

This garment works best if you wear the fishnet top as a first layer and loose fitting non-coated layers over it.

  • l-2.5 lamilite lining.
  • Completely machine washable & dryable.
  • Elastic wristlets
  • Permanent hood

 Excellent for all outdoor uses including sailing.

When you receive this jacket, run water over the fabric and you will see what I have seen: water running down the fabric like water running down a duck's back—hence the name. As for its vapor permeability, it will work best if you wear under garments that are themselves vapor permeable. I strongly recommend—for the absolute best results—that the very first layer you wear is the fishnet top. It will allow the entirety of moist vapor coming out of your pores to move quickly away from your skin surface. The fishnet underwear should always be loose fitting. Remember the fishnet material is a barrier separating the surface of your skin from the next layer of fabric; that is its primary purpose: so that the vapor can easily move away from you. All subsequent layers of clothing should also be loose fitting so as not to be constricting of your movements and never coated with anything. This will give the moist vapor the very best chance of moving through all layers (including the Lamilite) and out of the garment—meaning through the DUCKSBACK cloth as well.

  1. The Perfect Winter coat for me


    My Ducksback zippered Jacket came today.

    This may well be the perfect winter jacket for me here in Oklahoma.

    Oklahoma winters can be vicious or mild. Depends on which way the wind blows.

    South from the Gulf and things are pleasant.
    West and it depends SW is ok NW look out.
    North and it can be super wet cold.

    Locally we say nothing but fence posts between us and the Artic.

    I thought long and hard between the jacket and urban parka. I made my decision based on other Wiggys clothing I have. Years ago, I got one of you sweater jackets (before the Ducksback version came out) and it is by far the warmest jacket ever. Except for a few days it is actually too hot.

    I also have your liner jacket, liner vest and fishnet top and bottom. Last summer I came by your shop and got the boots and socks.

    I also have one of your pull overs and it super light and warm.

    I have your sleeping bags and now think I have the entire mix of outer wear that I need for anything that comes at me for Oklahoma Winter time.

    Your gear is the best and the fact that you live and make your gear in Grand Junction CO USA is even more reason to buy from you direct.
