  • 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.

    This vest is absolutely 💯 worth every penny. The Filson material holds up to whatever you throw it's way. The quality of the vest is top notch and is very comfortable with the warm weather. Another awesome product from Filson......

    Was looking for a summer vest for training and maybe some dove hunting. This has the water bottle slots and fit all the other criteria. Nicely Made, in the USA.

    Only complaint is on the sizing. As it is a strap vest, the waist circumference is the most important measurement, as you have less adjustment there. Alas, the vest is sized by chest, so if you have a marked difference between your chest and waist measurements getting the right fit might be counter to the sizing guide. GDS should probably note this on the product page...

    Fast delivery, good purchase.
    • Well Made

    Best game bag I've ever owned.
    October 14, 2020
    Fit and function is perfect. Pockets are perfect size for a box of shells. Game pouch in the back is somewhat waterproof and will not let bird blood bleed through.
    • Well made and very durable. Comfortable. Great for upland bird hunting vest and a perfect dog training vest.
