The Sebastian by Didriksons is a padded, fully windproof and waterproof jacket with taped seams. Just as suitable to wear in the city as on the countryside. It has a regular, straight-cut fit. Sebastian is made from a soft polyester fabric with a smooth, matte finish. The jacket has taped black reflective details around the padded and adjustable and detachable hood. Didriksons name and logo in reflective print on the chest and on one shoulder on the back. Reflective zip pull. There are four pockets on the front, two of which can be accessed from two sides. One pocket has a water-resistant zip, while the others have snap fasteners. Inside pocket with zip and two mesh inside pockets. Flexible full-length two-way front zip with a protective storm flap. The jacket can be adjusted using a drawstring at the hem and the cuffs can also be adjusted. The sleeves have elasticated cuffs with thumbholes.

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.
