Description

This variant of classic Wool Cruiser is constructed from wool that’s slightly lighter in weight than our Mackinaw Wool. The diagonal twill weave is supple, has a bit of natural give, and allows air transfer for maximum breathability.

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.

This limited-edition Wool Cruiser offers the same multi-pocket functionality as the original, and was built in limited quantities with our unique diagonal-twill wool that’s woven by another iconic Pacific Northwest company, Pendleton Woolen Mills. Ideal for moderate temperatures and more active use, the wide range of conditions in which it provides comfort is astounding.
