Engineered to endure the most extreme winter temperatures, the Frobisher is 100% waterproof and virtually indestructible. The design was inspired by the exploits of 16th century Yorkshire explorer, Sir Martin Frobisher, who combated the fiercest conditions in his attempts to discover new trade routes through the Northwest Passage.

  • Handcrafted using the world’s finest 100% cotton, Ventile®
  • The sleeves and body benefit from one and two layers respectively of 100% Merino Wool wadding. (Wool is a thermal regulating fibre meaning that it is superior to goose feathers / ‘down’ as it can cool down or indeed warm up depending on the surrounding temperature)
  • High rise wrap-around 100% merino shearling collar (N.B. collars may differ slightly from the images as no two shearling skins are the same)
  • Detachable hood, wadded with merino wool and fully lined in 100% cotton Ventile®
  • Two-way centre-front military-grade copper zip fastening (i.e. very convenient when getting on and into cars, bikes etc.)
  • Button through placket under which lies a RIRI zip secure map pocket (allows you to access stored items without unfastening the main zip)
  • Two external angled hand-warmer pockets lined with 100% merino wool
  • Two external patch pockets with bellows and flap with button fastening
  • Two large internal smartphone friendly patch pockets with stud secure fastening
  • Ventile® stud bearer with hold-tab to assist easy fastening
  • Adjustable drawstring waist with copper adjusters
  • Internal self-fabric drip strip along the hem (to stop any snow or moisture rising up and on to the lining)
  • Knitted storm cuffs to keep out the wind and cold
  • Etched copper rivets on back neck and hanger loop
  • Military grade copper hardware from RIRI of Switzerland
  • Real horn British-made combat buttons
  • Model wears size 4/M
  • Made in our own factory in Manchester, England
