The Mackinaw Cruiser Jacket is the most versatile cold-weather protection without the fuss of extra layers. The extremely durable wool from Oregon’s Pendleton Woolen Mills is an uncommonly tight weave that resists wind while remaining breathable. Mackinaw Wool insulates wet or dry due to its complex fiber structure and it can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in water without feeling damp or clammy. Two layers of wool cover most of the torso, right where it’s needed most. Four snap-flap pockets are on the front and a full-width map/chart pocket covers the entire back. The jacket was originally patented in 1914 and was designed for foresters and timber cruisers in the rain-soaked Pacific Northwest forests. Its versatile performance was also appreciated by hunters. The Cruiser was instrumental in Filson products being adopted by the U.S. Forest service as early as the 1920s, and by the 1940’s, Filson was producing several variations of the Cruiser with custom designs and fabrications for official uniform attire.
