Many years ago, my ex had bought me a reversible blaze orange and red & black Woolrich coat. I wore that for many years and it was a great coat. Sadly, during a divorce I stored some of my belongings at our family's cabin at Lake Nuangola and a mouse or two decided to chew their way into the box and through my coat. Guess they loved the wool, because it looked like swiss cheese.

Every time I see someone wearing them the smell of mothballs comes to mind. Have not used them in many years. They were great till they got wet then they soaked up every ounce of rain they could hold, but still kept you warm but maybe it was that extra 125 lbs you were lugging around.

I still wear a Woolrich coat almost exclusively during rifle and flintlock season. Mine is green and black, purchased shortly I read about Larry Benoit for the first time.

Still have my Granddad's but haven't worn it lately. Slipped on an icy rock crossing a stream one year and fell in, that thing froze on my back like a sheet of plywood!

I have the set,bought them 30 years ago off a guy who said they were his grandfather's.
I'm guessing they were made in the forties?
Any value?

Im a huge advocate of wool, i love my Woolrich, i have a red black heavy shirt, green black lined coat, and just snagged a brand new woolrich wool hoodie at the thrift for $13.
On a side note, if you like wool, you should look into a Stormey Kromer hat by far the greatest and most comgortable hat ive ever had, i just dont like the goretex lined.

My dad was married to his red Woolrich suit... On real cold years he wore his underneath a full orange suit... Must of been stuffy under there! I never wore one... But my dad could not hunt without Woolrich!
