Originally patented in 1914 as the Wool Cruising Shirt, C.C. Filsons 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 1940s, 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 menwhen theyre finally done growing several inches each year, parents will give their sons their first Cruiser, knowing that theyre providing all-conditions comfort that will serve for decades.
