B230 Arctic Smock - Vintage Wax

B230 Arctic Smock - Vintage Wax
The B230 Arctic Smock is a brand new addition for 2018, and is our first endeavour into waxed garments.

We have a small trial run of wax smocks which is available on a first come first serve basis. The aim is to gather your feedback and suggestions for a bigger range in the winter. Currently the plan is to have multiple colours and designs.

The outer is made from 'Templemoyle Mills' own premium waxed 100% 6oz cotton. That's quite a mouthful, but what that means is you get the same fabric used by many high-end brands. Wax cotton has a natural water repellent finish so you wont be getting wet in a hurry.
The smock is fully lined with fur which is incredibly comfortable and warm. It is made from a soft polyester fibre-pile, which helps repel water and oil.

The pockets are in typical Arktis configuration. Four large box pockets on the front of the garment, two zipped pockets beneath the upper box pockets (to accommodate for maps and electronics). As well as two internal zipped pocket.

Sizing help
The sizing and cut of the B230 is the same as our other smocks. However the fur may give the feel of a slightly snugger fit.

Care and Reproofing

 

Step 1 – If your Arktis wax jacket ever requires cleaning, do so by using cold water and a sponge to wipe down the outside of the jacket. Avoid using hot water, and any harsh chemicals. Do not put your jacket in the washing machine. This will remove the wax coating permanently and the jacket cannot be rewaxed.

 

Step 2 – To reproof take a tin of your chosen wax dressing. Remove the lid and put the tin in a shallow bath of hot water. The wax should start to melt, and should take up to 30 minutes for it to fully turn into liquid.

 

Step 3 - Using a clean cloth or sponge, work the melted wax into the jacket including all seams and creases. Wipe off any excess wax. You should keep the wax tin warm, otherwise it will start to harden and it won’t adhere to the jacket. Be sure to avoid any linings, fur, and the inside of pockets.

 

Step 4 – If you want to get a smoother finish use a hairdryer over your jacket to melt the wax once again. Then leave your jacket to dry overnight in a naturally warm ventilated place.
