Our Mackinaw Wool Cruiser is the most versatile cold-weather protection you’ll find–when you want to wear one jacket, no matter what direction the weather turns, nothing performs better. 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, it can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in water without feeling damp or clammy. With the four snap-flap pockets on the front and a full-width map/chart pocket covering the entire back, two layers of wool cover most of the torso, right where it’s needed most.

Originally patented in 1914 as the Wool Cruising Shirt, C.C. Filson’s Cruiser was designed for foresters and timber cruisers in the rain-soaked Pacific Northwest forests. Offered as a pullover shirt as well as a button-front jacket, the Cruiser rapidly became one of the most-imitated jackets on the market. Since its versatile performance was also appreciated by hunters, Filson also introduced a red & black plaid version, which was one of the earliest high-visibility camouflage patterns. (Deer see in black & white, and the blocked pattern helps to break up a solid silhouette in the forest.) 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 the stewards of our public lands as official uniform attire.

Over a century later, the Mackinaw Wool Cruiser is still prized for its versatility in the outdoors by foresters, hunters and anyone who desires a very durable, weather-resistant jacket that performs in a wide range of conditions without the need for multiple layers. For many of our customers, the Cruiser has become a rite of passage for young men–when they’re finally done growing several inches each year, parents will give their sons their first Cruiser, knowing that they’re providing all-conditions comfort that will serve for decades.

OUR WARMEST WOOL

Our heavyweight 24-oz. Mackinaw Wool provides natural insulation, breathability, and superior water repellency. It comes from a small herd of hardy sheep in the northwestern United States and Canada. Our wool will absorb as much as 30% of its own weight in moisture without becoming damp, allowing it to retain warmth even when wet. The fibers can even be bent and flexed 20,000 times without breaking. We’re certain there is no finer wool than Filson’s 100% virgin Mackinaw Wool.
