Best Waxed Canvas Jacket for the Field

Tom Beckbe Tensaw Waxed Canvas Jacket


  • Country of Manufacture: United States
  • Weight: 8-ounce Waxed shelter cloth
  • Lining Material: Cotton
  • Pockets: 7 (2 hip bellows pockets, 2 upper handwarmer pockets, 2 lower handwarmer pockets, 1 hidden Napoleon pocket)

Without a doubt, the right waxed canvas jacket can take a beating and stand up to plenty of pursuits. Some are best for the open road though, some are well-suited for a streamlined city commute and some are really, truly ready for the field. Whether your passion is big game or something more elusive, Tom Beckbe designed its Tensaw Jacket for the great outdoors — and that’s no joke.

Antique brass hardware is built to last, as is the waxed shelter cloth exterior (the most important part of the jacket, after all). The Tensaw features an easy-wearing bi-swing back and gusseted underarms, plus a corduroy-lined collar for a classic finish.
