"Like any good company, Tom Beckbe listens to their customers. And the customers asked for a lighter version of the Tensaw, to make it a true three-season waxed jacket. Enter the Tensaw Early Season (or ES)
The ES is everything you’d expect from the fully leaded Tensaw, just lighter. And to describe the ‘lighter’, it’s very wearable in 50’s – 60’s without breaking a sweat. The regular Tensaw’s sweet spot tops out in the 50’s, and is ideally suited for colder temperatures. It’s a 6 oz. waxed cotton (vs. the 8 oz), and out of the box, you can tell the difference."
