The Foul Weather Jacket is a dependable staple pulled from the archives and improved with an updated fit and sturdier fabric. This classic waxed-cotton raincoat is built with one-piece construction over the shoulders to eliminate seams that can be vulnerable to water entry. It’s more challenging to make a jacket this way, but the improved water resistance is well worth it.
For this version we used our signature oil finish Shelter Cloth, a midweight waxed canvas that takes its name from the fabric used for vintage military tents. The tightly woven fabric is fully saturated with liquefied wax by England’s historic British Millerain for water resistance. This time-honored process dates back hundreds of years to the oiled sailcloth used by 15th-century mariners.
A dry finish Cover Cloth lining adds a layer of protection between you and the waxed cotton shell. The two-way front zipper is shielded by a snap-close storm flap to keep out wind and water. Sueded-cotton Moleskin from England’s Brisbane Moss lines the collar and the outer surface inside the hand pockets. The sleeve cuffs are snap-tab adjustable and feature an inner rib-knit cuff to seal out the cold. The waist and hem feature drawcord adjustability, as does the included detachable hood. For cold-weather use, an interior zipper makes this versatile jacket compatible with Filson zip-in liners.
