You’ve heard the saying, 'They don’t make it like they used to,’ - well, you can’t say that about this jacket. The Pack Animal Adventure Jacket is inspired by the heavy, waxed, harsh weather gear that was popular in the early 1900s.
From soldiers to hunters to longshoremen, waxed canvas or “oilcloth” was prized for being hardwearing and shedding water, keeping the wearer dry. Don't forget a bar of our favorite Otter Wax - so you can keep your Adventure Jacket sealed and ready for years to come. (Check out our waxing tutorial below)
Our take on the vintage ‘field jacket’ design makes this jacket both a stylish classic, and amazingly functional.
The Adventure Jacket will get better with wear, as the 16oz canvas breaks in and conforms to your body. It’s unlined, so it’s perfect for layering over a flannel or sweater, and sports 4 inside pockets. Brass snaps keep you battened down tight on the outside, plus two bonus hand pockets give your mitts shelter from the wind.
