A Waxed jacket is a type of hip-length raincoat made from waxed cotton cloth, iconic of British country life. Today it is commonly worn for outdoor rural pursuits such as hunting, shooting and fishing. It is a cotton jacket made water-resistant by a paraffin-based waxing, typically with a tartan lining and a corduroy or leather collar.

The most well-known manufacturers of waxed jackets are: Filson, John Bardale J. Barbour & Sons, Belstaff, Royal Scot, Musto and Puffa.
