Thank you, Tim Walker, for the amazing story about the Packer coat durability! About three winters ago we had a bad refreezing of ice that was affecting a covered stair walk up to the apartment .The only option was to break it loose. When I got to the middle layer, the ice was hitting my coat fairly hard. My mother asked me if I wanted to stop because she was a little concerned that the ice might be painful. That Filson coat protected me like a knight wearing armor. I was tired when I was finished, but elated that coat took the brunt of the flying ice. To the fine folks at Filson, that packer coat is an outstanding product.
