The Thursday Buy: The Filson Alcan Quilted Jacket is the Toughest Spring Jacket on the Market

Filson Alcan Quilted Jacket

An unstoppable spring workwear jacket, no matter where the season takes you.

What if I told you there was a simple way to ensure you always had one of the best men’s jackets for spring at your disposal? A way to keep that jacket close at hand in your rotation constantly? It all starts with buying one of the best men’s jackets for spring, and to do that, you need to heed my advice first: The Filson Alcan Quilted Jacket is the answer to the above queries, and one of the toughest men’s jackets for spring, at that. You’ll find it in the Filson New Arrivals section, always a harbinger of quality seasonal gear offerings.

It was designed with the open road and with spring adventure in mind (it’s the best jacket to wear while riding a motorcycle, if that’s your thing), but it also functions handily day-to-day. That’s because it’s got all the same remarkable qualities in a Filson work jacket from the brand’s main line, with the  added flair of the fact that it comes from the new Filson Alcan workwear line. Why fix what’s not broken? Well, think of it as Filson taking what was already next-level and making it even better. The Filson Alcan Quilted Jacket will run you $450 at Filson, but as with any gear picks from the lauded Pacific Northwest heritage retailer, it’s worth the investment.

Filson Alcan Workwear

A seemingly simple silhouette blended with tough materials and top-notch construction.

The Filson Alcan Quilted Jacket, although subtly designed and not too flashy on the surface, makes up for that with tough-as-nails materials and design. It starts with a waxed cotton exterior build using waxed cotton from British Millerain, the sort of material found in jackets by the likes of Taylor Stitch and more.  The reinforced exterior is further bolstered with a quilted design and Cordura ballistic nylon reinforcements at key stress points (in this case, the shoulders and arms). The rib knit collar and cuffs also provide some added protection from the elements in a classic bomber-style cut. And the drop-tail hem, with a longer back cut, is also ideal for the open road. How does that sound for your new favorite jacket for spring, ehh?

These design touches come together seamlessly to make one of the most rugged men’s jackets you’re apt to find these days, and the PrimaLoft insulation provides warmth on chilly, blustery spring hikes or early morning strolls alike. And if you just want a cool, rugged men’s jacket to wear as you grab an outdoor beer? The Filson Alcan Quilted Jacket is your go-to menswear move, folks.
