  • Manufacturer FAQ Regarding Oil Finish Cloth Products:

    How do I clean my Oil Finish Cloth garment?
      Wipe or brush away surface soil or buildup with a damp cloth or scrub brush. If necessary, use cold water to loosen up any caked mud or dirt. (Some customers just hose 'em down at the end of the day.)

      We advise against spot cleaning with soap and water, as it may result in a loss of water repellency or color in that spot. If it is absolutely necessary to spot clean an Oil Finish garment, you may need to re-wax that spot to restore the water repellency after it dries.

      DO NOT professionally dry clean Oil Finish garments. Dry cleaning solutions destroy the Oil Finish, effectively turning Oil Finish fabrics into Dry Finish fabrics. If an Oil Finish garment is dry cleaned, it will need to be re-waxed to restore its water repellency.

      DO NOT machine wash Oil Finish garments. Machine washing breaks down the Oil Finish, and sometimes causes the fabric to shrink. Most importantly, machine washing will not soften Oil Finish Cloth. In fact, it may make the fabric stiffer than before.
    Do I need to re-wax my Oil Finish Cloth garment right away?
      You shouldn't need to re-wax your Oil Finish Cloth garment right away. It is ready to wear.

      However, over time, and with regular use, the Oil Finish water repellency may weaken, especially in areas of high wear or repeated flexing. One can of Filson's Style 1-A Original Oil Finish Wax is enough to touch up isolated areas of high wear or flexing, but re-waxing an entire garment usually requires several cans of wax.
    What should I do if my Oil Finish Cloth item gets wet?
      Cotton can shrink if it gets wet, especially when it's exposed to any kind of heat. Allow your Oil Finish Cloth product to dry naturally, away from any source of heat, to minimize shrinkage.

      Oil Finish Shelter Cloth is made of 100% cotton that has not been preshrunk, so shrinkage can occur, even if care is taken to avoid prolonged exposure to heat when wet. Most customers do not experience enough shrinkage to have a problem with the fit.
    Do I need to order a one size up to allow for shrinkage?
      Any cotton garment is susceptible to shrinkage, which varies with use. For example, if your garment gets wet and then hot (drying out by a hot stove or in a car trunk, or when you work up a sweat wearing it on a hot day) shrinkage can occur.

      While a small percentage of users experience shrinkage in their Oil Finish Shelter Cloth garments (usually due to getting them repeatedly wet and dry) most users do not experience enough shrinkage to create a problem with the fit. We recommend that you order your normal size unless you have previous experience with unusual shrinkage in our garments.
    Is your Oil Finish Tin Cloth waterproof?
      Our Oil Finish Shelter Cloth is not totally waterproof, but it is very water repellent, especially for a natural fabric like cotton. In a sustained downpour, the fabric will begin to absorb water, but you can expect to stay dry and comfortable for hours in the rain.
    How breathable is Oil Finish Shelter Cloth?
      Rubber and plastic raingear do not breathe at all, which means as you work or play in the rain, your body heat stays trapped inside the garment, eventually building up condensation that leaves you soggy and uncomfortable.

      We describe our Oil Finish Shelter Cloth as breathable, when compared to rubber or plastic raingear, because it offers superior water repellency, but at the same time will allow air to push through. However, Oil Finish Shelter Cloth is generally not as breathable as high-tech synthetic fabrics, such as those that use Gore-Tex breathable membranes.
    Why is my new Shelter Cloth item a different shade of tan than my last one?
      Each dye lot accepts dyes to a different degree, depending on fiber variations, harvest time, and processing. We feel that the difference you are seeing is an acceptable color range for our Shelter Cloth.

    Country of Origin: Made in USA.

    A great coat
    December 25, 2020
    This coat was a perfect fit for my Weimaraner. It is well made and the closures are exactly the right size to close the coat around him without having excess flapping in the breeze. He is comfortable in it and can move freely. The inner liner is warm and smooth, while the outer shell repels briars and snow sweeps off it easily
    • I like the appearance and fit. Seams are even and straight, and there are no loose ends to unravel.
    • I would like to see a little more insulation, as Weimaraners do not have heavy undercoats nor layers of fat to protect them from the cold.

    Excellent dog jacket -- so good, we bought it twice!
    March 17, 2021
    We first purchased this jacket for our first dog three years ago. The tin cloth outer fabric stands up to the rain and the snow, and the wool lining keeps our pup warm and dry from the elements. Even after being out in the Pacific Northwest rainy weather for hours at a time, the wetness never soaked through to the wool.

    Now that we added another pup to our herd, our first and probably last dog jacket for him is this Filson product. It may seem like a steep price -- but it's worth every penny.
    • Resistant to the elements, rugged material, warm, excellent velcro that has held up over nearly 4 years
    • Expensive initial price tag -- but well worth it as it'll be the last one you'll need to buy

    Our office mascot loves the coat. Keeps her warm and dry during our daily walk at lunch. Water sheds right off. Many compliments from the neighborhood. The fit is good and stays in place.

    The size is too big. I asked to exchange and was told that I would have to pay for the return rather than have a ups label sent to me. Not great customer service.

    Bought this for hunting with my Shorthair. We live in the midwest and it gets very cold. More of a kennel coat than a field coat. Only covers his back. Not sure how well it will work while hunting. However, like most all Filson products, it is good quality.

    Bought the large size first. My female spayed GSP measured at 21 inch length and 29 inch around her chest. Went with the bigger size because of the size chart on this coat. It was big on her, but covered her well. It was just baggy. I bought the medium to try it, and I think it fits her much better. The front strap is not close to being in the way when she runs, and it's snug on her body. The back part of the coat lifts up when she sniffing the ground though. So I am going to add a loose strap over the back of the coat to hold it down.

    Well made coat. Durable. Been hunting twice in it, and it has not come off. I was surprised about how thin the coat was though. But after reading people's reviews from Minnesota and other colder areas I assume it's a warm coat. I don't think a dog needs a coat all the time anyways, but it's nice to have something for the bitter cold at least. Something to block the wind and rain.

    Good coat though. Hope my size trial helps someone make the right decision and not have to pay to send a coat back.

    Great product and reasonably priced for the quality and usefulness of the product. My male Brittany loves it. He sits by the closet waiting for me to put it on him before we head out for a walk.

    Good for daily walks when it is cold, but the large size required for her length was a little baggy at the back end and would not be practical for hunting or extreme use of any kind. That said, for the day to day requirements when it gets below minus 15 degrees celsius, it is more than adequate and I would recommend it.

    I initially got a large, but the width was too large for my dog. I returned it with ease and received a medium which fits him well. He loves the coat. Thanks so much.

    Great coat. Excellent construction and materials. The fit is a little off for my dog. Chest area is a bit too large, but the flap just hangs over a bit, and the coat is secure. I'm using a clip to hold the excess flap in place, which seems to work. Length and waist is perfect, and my dog's been wearing the coat happily in -9 degree winter weather.

    Review for Shelter Cloth Dog Coat by Filson
    January 8, 2013
    This dog coat is awesome. Up in Minnesota the winters can get brutally cold. Without any type of jacket, my dog gets cold very quickly when he is outside and not actively running around. The Filson Dog Coat does a great job at giving him extra time outside on the coldest days. The coat is very durable, and when pounding through the snow, keeps my dog dry and warm. The coat fits perfectly and lays snugly on the body. My dog is not restricted at all when running full bore in the coat. The inner wool liner is very easy on the dog's coat as well. We have a skid plate safety vest that we run in the brush. Fur loss happens fairly quickly on the dogs back where the buckle straps rub when he is running. Not so with the Filson. The wide straps on the chest and belly hold tight and don't cause any issues.

    Purchased to keep my Braque Francais warmer during the ND winter and cold hunts. Purchased a medium for my 51lb dog. The jacket shows about 2" of his butt uncovered. At first he didn't care for it, now he will wear it all day if I let him. Excellent craftsmanship and looks like it will be durable as I expect with any Filson product.
