Barnegat Bay Cruiser
It's right after the shift-off when the three-day nor'easter runs out, the skies clear and the wind comes hard to the north-northwest. Now the wet of rain is replaced by a dry, biting, salt-filled wind...driven so strong across the bay it means to cut right through you. We know of few things that renew the spirit as much as mornings like this... mornings that inspired us to re-think an American classic... the wool duffel. Cut long and roomy through the body and sleeves from premium-grade, 30 oz. wool. Our Melton weave ensures a superior cloth so tight the sun won't shine through it, and the wind...it meets the skin of this coat and retires. To increase its density, we wash and shrink it. To finish, we brush each side to leave a soft hand. Fully lined with quilted nylon over light-weight insulation. For your hands, big, welted storm pockets. The water-resistant 8 oz. DryHandle cape adds to the wool's natural water repellency...it's detachable for less demanding days. The waterproof leather under-collar is where it belongs.
