A classic pulled from the Filson archives, the Mackinaw Wool Work jacket is warm, highly durable, and simply functional. Sharing its DNA with our iconic 1914-patented Cruiser, it’s built with naturally breathable wool from Shetland sheep, with a tight weave that blocks wind and provides the durability to last generations.
The design is streamlined, cut to hip-length to avoid riding up when seated and for easy access to pockets or a tool belt. The virtually indestructible custom snaps that are employed for the front closure and adjustable cuffs are easy to operate even when wearing work or insulating gloves. The pockets are patterned after the Cruiser’s, with snapped flaps and hidden handwarmer pockets. The left-side exterior features a layered accessory pocket and the interior an open-stow pocket.
Wool has been the natural fabric of choice for protection from cold, wet weather for centuries in large part due to its ability to insulate even when wet. The complex structure of the wool fibers wicks moisture out to the tips for evaporation, enabling the fabric to absorb up to 30% of its own weight in water without feeling damp or clammy.
For an all-purpose, all-natural jacket for the job and daily wear, this archival Mackinaw Wool Work Jacket is the solution that simply works.
