Cast from a legacy of adventure, the Talisman was custom built for yours.


From vintage motorcycle journeys to adventures on the high seas, waxed cotton jackets are timeless and storied garments. The Talisman reimagines this icon of style and capability with a refined balance of elegant geometry and heritage materials for the modern adventurer.


Initially developed by sailors in the 19th century, waxed cotton technology has stood the test of time. Densely woven canvas is impregnated with paraffin wax to create a breathable but waterproof shell that is both soft and supple. Waxed cotton ages with use, recording an account of past adventures in its marks and creases. The proofing can be maintained over time by applying wax to the surface, ensuring the Talisman remains capable over a lifetime of use.


Durably constructed and fully finished, the Talisman is a formidable partner for your daily adventures and beyond pavement's edge. Secure pockets inside and out keep your gear organized and accessible, and the stand-up collar conceals a stowable Ventile hood for additional weather protection.


Features:



  • Timeless Technology: Both the waxed cotton shell and the stowable Ventile hood provide natural protection from the elements.

  • Secure Storage: Traditional snap-down pockets with concealed gussets provide ample storage on the exterior, and a zippered interior pocket secures critical items.

  • Modern Classic: A relaxed fit paired with a ¾ zip and drop-tail hem provide mobility without impeding coverage. Intricate, mosaic piecing modernizes this timeless style for tomorrow's adventures.

    Awesome - buy one

    Posted by Robert on 2nd Feb 2019

    Super quality functional wax jacket. Design well thought out. Minimal cold weather protection on the way of insulation but great in wet, breathable robust fabric and comfy as you like. Blocks wind well.
    Exceptional build quality. Worth the money all day long.
    Great replacement for anyone wanting a natural old school answer to wet weather thin breathable jacket.

    Outstanding

    Posted by True North Ops on 3rd Dec 2018

    I reviewed this jacket last year after purchasing a black one. My views have not changed since that feedback. If anything I have become more impressed with this jacket.
    The black is best suited to an urban environment. Hence the reason why I purchased a Havana one this week from HH HQ for field use. I cannot recommend this product enough. This jacket is made with products from the UK and far exceeds Barbour or Belstaff waxed jackets.
    Check out the latest TAD video re the jacket. All I can say is that what is stated in the video is a true and accurate reflection of this jacket.

    Stop thinking about it. Just buy it.

    Posted by Ben on 6th Sep 2018

    It took me over a year to buy this jacket. I kept going back & forth about was it worth it, was it over priced, was it right for me. Short answer is it's a great jacket. I wish I bought it last year. It develops a patina as you wear it but it looks better the more you wear it. A few things worth knowing. One is it's a relaxed fit, which is great as you can layer without looking like an over stuffed sausage. But when worn over just a shirt it doesn't look baggy. The only small negative is I recently took it to Scotland for the weekend & spent some time out side in it in some barely believable rain, genuinely couldn't have been raining harder. Whilst I stayed dry given I wasn't out for a prolonged period it did feel like it absorbed some water as it was quite heavy for 24hrs or so after. But 99% of the time it will be fine in all but the most hardcore weather.

    Yes Yes Yes TAD do it Again

    Another excellent product by the team at TAD. I have to say this is an excellent modern creation of a cross between some of the old ventile style jackets tested and used by specialist Military teams in the 80/90's /early 2000's and the traditional old barbour style jacket. The jacket is well designed and comfortable to wear. It is styled to be worn in a multitude of environments. You could wear this jacket on the fells, in the city and on any of your adventures and travels wherever they take you. All I can say is get one!

    You get what you pay for...

    Posted by Martin on 22nd Mar 2017

    You get what you pay for and for £499 you get a waxed jacket...
    Just let that settle in £499 for a waxed jacket.
    But its a TADGear jacket to its built to last, built to perform, fits well and will sheild you from the extremes of wind and rain.
    £499 for a waxed jacket that till last a lifetime.... £499
