Filson's Oil Finish Shelter Cloth Hunting Coat
Covering large tracts of land in inclement weather in pursuit of your favorite upland bird can be daunting, but the task is made easier when wearing comfortable gear like the Oil Finish Shelter Cloth Hunting Coat from Filson. Shelter Cloth is an eight-ounce tightly woven 100 percent cotton fabric that is soaked in a paraffin-based wax. This gives the long sleeve coat exceptional toughness, durability and wind resistance. A shooting patch is woven into the coat to protect the hunter's shoulder from recoil. If you need storage, this coat has it all: a pocket with loops for shells, front and rear entry nylon-lined game bag, two large bellowed pockets with two compartments each, and two specially designed pockets to securely hold two kinds of dog transmitters. Plus, the coat has an "action back" for freedom and movement. Blaze Orange Ten Mile cloth is sewn onto the front and back of the coat. Contact: C.C. Filson, Dept. GD, P.O.
