The Lovis by Didriksons is a warm, padded wind and waterproof jacket with taped seams. Made from hard-wearing polyamide with a matte finish. A regular fit with a slightly dipped rear hem. The jacket has a zip with a protective storm flap at the centre front, and two pockets with zips. Reflective details on the sleeves and back and a detachable hood. Didriksons in large print on the right sleeve. Elasticated cuffs and the hem can be adjusted using a drawstring. It features the “Extend size” function, which means that the sleeves can be extended by up to one size by detaching the specified inside seams.

Didriksons started in 1913 in Grundsund, Sweden. The Didriksons company started making waterproof jackets for fishermen that would protect them from the cold, wet and rough conditions on Swedish waters. At the time, more fishermen died from hypothermia than from drowning. The very first coats were nothing more than pieces of fabric that were coated several times with layers of (linseed) oil using a brush. After this the 'oilskins' were hung out to dry. When these had dried sufficiently the fishermen could wear them in the cold and wetness on the water. The fishermen spontaneously stayed dry and warm and soon the demand for these early Didriksons 'raincoats' increased rapidly.
