In 1913 Taranaki tailor William Broome, frustrated by the incessant New Zealand rain developed a work shirt with a secret waterproofing. The work shirt, made from one hundred percent pure New Zealand wool was fabled for its durability and practicality and quickly became the choice of pioneering New Zealanders.
The company's name is derived from the waterproof nature of waterfowl, and this jacket is no exception. Simple and straightforward, a tough jacket from a tough place.

The jacket is also available at Orvis.
