Before polyester and nylon, waxed canvas was a go-to fabric for rain jackets. We've been dying to make one with Shift + Wheeler written all over it. We finally did! Don't worry, it'll keep you dry in the harshest rain.

This garment is oversized, to accommodate the things we wear under raincoats (bulky sweaters, layers). Please refer to the sizes listed as a best suggestion, and read the measurements carefully. All measurements listed are for the GARMENT, not your body! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email us. 

Made of 8 oz. waxed canvas with Railroad Denim accents. Bottom pockets have side access and top access. 

Nick is wearing the Large. He's 6'2" and wears a mens Large or XL. Becky is wearing the 2XL,  she is 5'1" and wears a commercial size 22/24. 


Waxed canvas is known to age beautifully and patina over time. This is especially noticable and happens more quickly with lighter colors such as yellow. 

Cleaning Waxed Canvas

Brush off dirt or sand. Use a clean sponge or brush to gently massage small spots with cold water and a drop of mild soap. Rinse with cold water. Let the bag air dry. Do not use warm or hot water, laundry detergent, traditional washing, or dry cleaning.


To maintain the water resistance of your item, you may choose to re-wax in a year or two, depending on how much you use it.  Use canvas wax according to package instructions.

Now that the rainy season is here I’ve been wearing this jacket for my walks. Easily fits some warm layers underneath, and keeps all the rain out. My favorite part is the hood is both large enough to keep the rain off my glasses but small enough that I can see.

(Sizing notes: I am usually a 28-30W or a size 7 in the suspendier dress. I got the 4X but could have easily gone with the 3X and still had plenty of room for layers.)
