what do you think of drizabones?

Hi Everyone

I'm thinking of getting a drizabone full-length coat for riding. Lots of people seem to have them around here. What are your experiences them? Are they worth the $200 they cost to buy?

Thanks in advance!

I've seen them, never really felt the need to buy one If its for riding in the rain I have a cheap slicker that looks like the drizabone that probably does a better job of keeping me dry. I think It was around $30. I like my even cheaper rain poncho best, it has a hood and I can spread it out like a tent over the saddle.

Are they comfortable to ride in as well as keeping you dry?

I'm curious maybe some of you Aussies can tell me. How do you keep them waterproof? Can you wash them and the wax or oil stays in there or do you have to reapply it somehow?

I have always just used the cheap yellow slickers...you can stuff them in a tack box or anywhere for that matter and I don't have to worry about loosing somthing that I don't use much or having it stolen when we are at camp. Although I wouldn't mind having a really nice one, guess i'm just cheap...

I've had mine for well over 10 years now and never re-waterproofed it, I guess if needed, you could use the same stuff that you can get for canvas rugs. I've never washed mine, it's never needed it, I don't know anyone else who has either.

Once broken in they are really comfy to ride in, when they are new they are a little stiff at first.
