New Drill Chore Coat WN1: Made Tough for Routine Destruction

The life of skateboarder thrives on destruction, whether it’s a curb, a wall, a rail, or anything in their way—skateboarders demand the toughest protection for everyday use. Enter Vans’ new Drill Chore Coat WN1, inspired by the routine wear and tear skateboarders endure, and specifically engineered with Cordura® brand fabric and reinforced stitching for maximum durability. This classic coat will withstand all the abuse a professional skateboarder can throw its way while keeping the timeless aesthetic of the chore coat’s blue-collar beginnings.


“My favorite type of jacket would have to be a chore coat.

I’m always into new styles, but a chore coat is consistent and versatile.”

- Gilbert Crockett, Vans Global Skate Team

Pro-built for skateboarding, the Drill Chore Coat WN1 is upgraded with Storm Cotton™ to repel water and Teflon™ treated to protect fabric and keep you dry and highlights a patent-pending fully functional hood which can be stashed away into an invisible hidden compartment at the collar. A moisture wicking interior lining complements the technical attributes to keep you fresh and comfortable. 


The jacket’s design is finished off with a contrast corduroy collar, dual side entry lower pockets, and low-profile snaps to protect against impact during slams.

Innovative in design and driven by its functionality for skateboarding, the Vans Drill Chore Coat WN1 is built to withstand the abuse that other coats can’t.

The new Vans Drill Chore Coat WN1 is available now at select Vans Pro Skate retailers.
