MACKINAW MEMORIES: Why Trade My Perfectly Good Coat For A New One? By Bruce M Rose

Posted September 20, 2012
· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

My wife recently suggested that I “trade” in my Filson wool coat and receive $60 off a new one. Why would she suggest such a thing? First of all, I’ve had this coat longer than she’s been my wife and we’ve been married 30 years. Second of all, this coat is in perfect condition. I saved my money in high…

MACKINAW MEMORIES: Keeping an Old Friend By Stuart Salter

I saw your recent promotion to give $60 trade in my Mackinaw Wool Cruiser. Based on my experience I doubt you will get many takers. My red/black double Mackinaw is about 20 years old and still looks like it just came out of the box. Since I have gained 20lbs in 20 years I can’t bundle up as much underneath…

Back in 2007, I bought my Mackinaw used off of an auction website.  I will not mention the name, but it rhymes with fleabay. The coat was in like new condition but a tad bit too big. At this time I was six foot one and 260 lbs!!!! I was a big boy. So after I received my coat I…

If you love nature, the outdoors, frosty mornings or cool evenings then you will love Filson. If you hunted with dad or grandpa or read about the hunts of the past then you experienced the comfort simplicity and tradition of wool. You saw the red/black wool coat the first morning of the hunt, or worn around the evening campfire. If…

MACKINAW MEMORIES: Must be hunting season! By Chester J. O’Neill

I am not going to tell you a story. I am going to tell you the truth, I love that Mackinaw Cruiser. I grew up in the 60s and it seemed that everybody owned one of those plaid beauties. I think I just had a Norman Rockwell moment. When you see that coat you can’t help but to think of…

MACKINAW MEMORIES: Cold Feet by Eric Rottner

· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

A couple of years ago my uncle and I went camping in Upstate New York. It was mid-January and the temperature was in the teens. On the first night I was drinking hot chocolate and spilled it all over my jacket. Within a moment’s notice, my uncle came back from his car with his old Mackinaw Cruiser. He said he…

MACKINAW MEMORIES: The Wood Chipper By Al Asmus

· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

A number of years ago I bought a Mackinaw Cruiser in Duluth, Minnesota on the way to a vacation on the North Shore. It turned out to be my “go to” jacket for most activities in late fall and winter. I had it broken in and feeling just right. Fast forward a few years and one of my sons was…

My valet and I were hunting wild horned rabbits in the Klondike back during the blizzard of’ ’86. Man it was cold. Did you ask how cold it was? It was so cold that my scotch whiskey was frozen like ice cubes and I kept them in my pockets. I was wearing a Sears hooded jersey sweatshirt with attached mittens…

· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

My son is the proud owner of a Filson Mackinaw but lives in sunny California where Mackinaw wearing is a bit of an overkill. A couple of Christmases ago he came to visit me in Vermont. With delight he donned his Mackinaw to guard against the frosty Vermont cold (where we have 10 months of winter and a couple of…

MACKINAW MEMORIES: When My Future Coat Talks By Nathan B Strong

Posted August 29, 2012
· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

As I do not own a Mackinaw Cruiser yet, I thought I would write about what my future Mackinaw Cruiser would have to say. Everything from camping in the outback in Montana to October canoeing trips through the BWCA, I have been through it all. Kept warm and had more adventures than any other coat in any coat rack I…
