I wore it recently on a winter camping trip and it snowed quite a bit more than I had expected it to. I know, winter camping in a snow storm isn't everyone's idea of a good time; however, it happens to be my favorite time to see the outdoors. It is beautiful out there all fours seasons, and I want to experience all that the wilderness has to offer. The coat performed superbly! By the time that I reached my campsite about ten miles in from the trailhead my coat was covered in snow to the point that it was completely white. I was wearing gore tex leather boots with gaiters, canvas pants, merino wool base layers, and a merino wool hoodie manufactured by icebreakers, and of course a watch cap. I was very warm; however, unlike many synthetic products I have used over the years in conditions like described I did not sweat despite the rigorous hike. Wool has a unique ability to keep you warm in very cold conditions while not overheating you inducing sweat. Sweat is a killer in the winter. If you allow yourself to sweat when in cold temperatures your clothes get wet. This is a problem when you stop moving around and your core temperature drops because you can literally freeze.
Upon arriving at my chosen spot to camp I put up an overhead tarp to create a working space for me to work under out of the snow fall. I then took the coat off and simply shook it a few times like a bathroom mat and all of the snow fell off leaving the coat snow free and surprisingly bone dry. I was very impressed! The reason I chose to bring this coat along as opposed to other coats I have taken into the backcountry has to do with three things: wool retains up to 80-90% of its insulative value even when soaking wet, it won't catch fire when i'm tinkering with and am in close proximity to my campfire, and lastly, it is the most durable coat I have ever seen! I fell on, stretched, snagged, and abused this coat as a coat should be capable of withstanding when trail breaking through the thicket of the northeastern woodlands. It is indestructible.
I love the look of it and get asked all the time if it is a Filson. I had never really even heard of the company until recently so the recognition of the product surprised me.
I might buy this coat in a different color next winter that's how much I like it.
