you get what you pay for....i have never had the money to get outerwear....

the trapper pullover is all i have ever worn and it's ten times better then anything i have ever tried. the double mackinaw is a good filson garment though.

Most of Filson wool hunting jackets are still made in the USA. They started to import clothes about 4 years ago. It will be soon that all of their stuff is imported.

Here are some web sites that sell the top of the line wool colthing today. They compare to the Woolrich from the 40's and 50's, but better. Most of these are USA made. I have not come across import wool clothing that has the same thickness and quality as USA made.

IMO, nothing beats Filson. I have three jackets(two tin one shelter), a couple wool liners, double tin field pants, numerous pairs of socks in different weights, tin strap vest for small game, and a hat. Absolutely love them all. Always warm, always dry, and never over dressed.

I have some filson garments including the cruiser and they are good quality, don't forsee that I'm going to ever be able to wear them out. There are differences in wool quality and weight, most good wool costs good money. You've heard it before you get what you pay for, but you can keep it reasonable. I chose filson, but I wouldn't hesitate to buy from some of the others mentioned either. Just to confuse you more, look at some of the stuff from LL Bean. Not sure where its made but also seems to be good quality and they'll stand behind it like the others also.

like i have said, i love filson but if i had more money i would never own anything filson ever again knowing their is a company like king of the mountain out there...most can't afford it or have more important priorities but it is just one of those things that you don't know absolute unequaled true quality until you put it on. i don't even have one of their more expensive garments and it's still the best thing i have ever warn for long term warmth and comfort. imagine what it's like to sit in a wind that's about -20 degrees and be just a little too warm.
