Cast from a legacy of adventure, the Talisman was custom built for yours.

From vintage motorcycle journeys to adventures on the high seas, waxed cotton jackets are timeless and storied garments. The Talisman reimagines this icon of style and capability with a refined balance of elegant geometry and heritage materials for the modern adventurer.

Initially developed by sailors in the 19th century, waxed cotton technology has stood the test of time. Densely woven canvas is impregnated with paraffin wax to create a breathable but waterproof shell that is both soft and supple. Waxed cotton ages with use, recording an account of past adventures in its marks and creases. The proofing can be maintained over time by applying wax to the surface, ensuring the Talisman remains capable over a lifetime of use.

Durably constructed and fully finished, the Talisman is a formidable partner for your daily adventures and beyond pavement's edge. Secure pockets inside and out keep your gear organized and accessible, and the stand-up collar conceals a stowable Ventile hood for additional weather protection.
