Mackinaw Memories: Hunting with my Mackinaw Cruiser By Glade T Roos

Posted August 29, 2012
· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

When I was a young man I once went deer hunting with my brother in the hills above our home. I was wearing a red and black Filson Mackinaw Cruiser and a worn Stetson outfitters hat. I was also carrying an old savage rifle chambered for the 250/3000. We went quite a distance into the woods that day. Just before…

MACKINAW MEMORIES: Second Marriage, Second Coat By Ed McCullough

· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

In 1954, I was working in N.W. Montana. I was a city kid from Chicago and this was my first time away from home living in Montana for the year. Working for the US Forest Service, it got cold and I needed a warm coat, so I asked around (loggers, muleskinners) and everyone said get a Filson Cruiser.  Just that,…

Doc got off the Piedmont Airline DC-3 wearing a scarlet red Filson Cruiser Jacket and an Open Road Stetson hat. To a 9-year-old boy in 1954 raised in Burlington, N.C., he was The West. My Dad was invited to hunt elk in Idaho by a distant relative. Idaho needed doctors back then and he was being courted to relocate. His…

MACKINAW MEMORIES: My Borrowed Mack Cruiser Morning By Cheryl A. Raywood

Posted August 24, 2012
· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

Adirondack end of summer mornings can be cold and damp, especially before 10 am., so borrowing my daughter’s Macinaw was a necessity. Moving back and forth between the creek bank and the small barn to relocate her woodpile where it would be safe from spring flooding, it kept me comfortably warm as well as dry. This jacket, now 25 years…

MACKINAW MEMORIES: Who Stole The Coat by Cindy Quest

· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

I moved to NY about 30 years ago and ended up living with a guy that had a large piece of property and a wood stove. I noticed this wonderful red plaid jacket in the closet and asked whose it was. He said he doesn’t remember who had it originally, but it was his now and he’d had it about…

MACKINAW MEMORIES: Why didn’t I know about Filson years ago!? By Franz Fruehwald

Posted August 16, 2012
· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

I confess that I only discovered Filson a few years ago. I mentioned to an avid outdoorsman friend of mine that I was in the market for a good quality winter coat. I explained that I wanted a wool coat that would hold up to the elements, one that could transition from the woods to the office, and finally, one…

MACKINAW MEMORIES: A Sturdy Companion By Thom Thacker

· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

I was 17 years old when I bought my red/black Mackinaw Cruiser at the Portland Outdoor Store in 1973. I had just moved to Portland, and the coat served me well that year. Through numerous trips in the woods and on city streets, the Mackinaw would soak up all the rain and still keep me warm and dry. The coat…

· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

From the woods of the Adirondack Mountains to the cosmopolitan streets of Manhattan, my Mackinaw served me well and kept me warm. While others chose noisy, temperamental, synthetic fabrics I sported my Mackinaw made from comfortable and reliable wool. During the week my Mackinaw set me apart from the pack, kept me warm and provided some unique pockets for carrying…

MACKINAW MEMORIES: The Ultimate Evolution of Outerwear by William Ziegler

Posted August 8, 2012
· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

My Filson Mackinaw story begins long ago…in the winter of 2012. I am a self-affirmed outerwear aficionado. I own high-tech down jackets and waterproof parkas. I own motorcycle jackets. Classic black pea coats. A shearling car coat. A wool greatcoat. And on and on. My wife has to remind me to buy socks and periodically “misplaces” my rattiest t-shirts, but…
