  • Manufacturer FAQ Regarding Oil Finish Tin Cloth Products:

    Why do you call it Tin Cloth?
      Tin Cloth has been one of our most popular fabrics for decades. It was nicknamed Tin Cloth when tin was the standard for toughness. We've also heard it described in the past as being called Tin Cloth because it sheds water like a tin roof.
    How do I clean my Oil Finish Tin 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 Tin Cloth. In fact, it may make the fabric stiffer than before.
    Do I need to re-wax my Oil Finish Tin Cloth garment right away?
      You shouldn't need to re-wax your Oil Finish Tin 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 (such as the knees of a pant, or the elbows or cuffs on a jacket). 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 Tin 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 Tin Cloth product to dry naturally, away from any source of heat, to minimize shrinkage.

      Oil Finish Tin 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. You'll notice shrinkage primarily in the length of a sleeve or pant leg, less often in the chest or waist.

      While a small percentage of users experience shrinkage in their Oil Finish Tin 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 Tin 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.
    My new Tin Cloth jacket is very stiff! Is there anything that I can do to break it in faster? Can I throw it in the washing machine, or the dryer?
      There are no shortcuts to breaking in a Tin Cloth garment--you just have to wear it as much as you can until it softens up. No matter what, don't throw your Tin jacket in the washing machine--that may only make it stiffer. Tumbling in a dryer will only soften it briefly (when the fabric cools, it will return to its original stiffness).
    How breathable is Oil Finish Tin 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 Tin 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 Tin Cloth is generally not as breathable as high-tech synthetic fabrics, such as those that use Gore-Tex breathable membranes.
    Why is my new Tin 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 Tin Cloth.

    Country of Origin: Made in Vietnam.

    Excellent product & price

    Love the Filson game bag. Filson actually didn’t have this product when I looked there for it. Turns out I saved money getting it from Gun Dog Supply, price on the product was the same, but the shipping was free!
    That’s a 10.00 to 15.00 savings, thanks Gun Dog Supply!

    Pretty much Indestructible
    December 17, 2020
    I purchased this exact vest back in 1995..... dont' believe its broken in yet ! The tin cloth is pretty much indestructible....hose it down to clean ! If you buy this vest, spring for the chaps (the double ones with the snap cuffs) as well and you will have the whole outfit. As another reviewer stated, pile on more clothes in colder weather, its perfect for warm weather by itself.
    • Good, solid piece of hunting / dog training will have it forever.
    • none.

    Great vest
    October 4, 2020
    I ordered this vest to replace the one I got from my dad who got it from his brothers in law as a Christmas gift about 1940. It finally gave up the ghost last year. I'm 5-11, 225, and I ordered the super size so it will fit over heavier clothes later in the season. I carried my first birds in it this weekend.
    • This vest is great from hot weather in the early season to the icy days in December. Wear as much as you need to stay warm, and it will still fit over it.
    • None that I know of. I did add one hole to the leather belt so I could snug it up a bit more when I'm hunting in warm weather.

    The game bag is great! Two huge front pockets which do a good job of keeping out rain, and it's lightweight!! I like that you can retrieve things out of the large back pocket without taking the vest off, and items stay put!
