Styling and details are the same as our popular Robin hood style. Except this is a lighter weight version. The Hotspur uses 4 ounce wax cotton, whereas the traditional Robin Hood style has 8 ounce. All of your favourite things about the latter are still to be found in the Hotspur. High quality antique brass two way zip, detachable hood, rear game pocket and internal game pocket.
Luxury technical wax jacket combining tradition with Technology. Probably the most waterproof windproof and warm wax jacket available. We use a 100% long staple Egyptian cotton wax outer fabric from famous Scottish mill, Halley Stevensons, combined with our beautiful house check lining.
If using those top quality British fabrics wasn't enough, here is the main difference between our wax jackets and other expensive wax jackets that might be out there.
Sandwiched between the outer fabric and the lining is a highly technical waterproof and breathable membrane and, like the one used in mountaineering and ski clothing.
We cannot easily claim to be the only brand in the world that offers a truly waterproof wax cotton jacket, but we haven't found another one yet! The problem with traditional wax cotton jackets is that they shed rain from their surface but do not prevent water penetration, which is why they cannot claim to be waterproof.
This is truly a luxury piece of kit. It has a real buffalo hide leather collar, a detachable hood, leather trim on pockets and cuffs and plenty of pockets, including a double entry rear
Outer pocket for pheasants or laptops (Preferably not both at the same time) - there is also a lower front internal iPad pocket.
If you really want an absolute luxury waxed jacket that is REALLY waterproof. This is the one. A waxed jacket on steroids. A classic, timeless design (it was the first jacket I designed in 2012 when I started the company) - it is our flagship product with a flagship message. ENGLISH UTOPIA WAX JACKETS ARE REALLY WATERPROOF.
Other well known brands will not use a waterproof taped seam membrane in their jackets as they believe it inadvertently owns up to the fact that waxed cotton isn't really waterproof. You will rarely see an advert claiming this. We achieve by using such a membrane and it has the added benefit also of being windproof and very warm. Another traditional problem with waxed cotton jackets was that they tended to be cold to wear. Not this one! In fact I'm tempted to say that it is the best wax jacket on the market.
