Tom Beckbe OuterWear: Made in USA

I really enjoy the outdoors, especially during the Fall. I can”t wait for the temperature to drop just a bit so I can break out my heavier clothing.  When I saw the items from Tom Beckbe I knew I wanted to bring them to your attention. The product line is geared towards hunters, but these garments and bags have a very multi-purpose feel to them.The Tensaw jacket features a waxed shelter cloth shell, a corduroy-lined collar for warmth and – really nice touch – a  cotton twill lining dyed in Alabama red clay.Not terribly cold out but you need a little protection and some storage pockets? The Kinsman vest has you covered.Looking for a durable duffle to carry your gear? Check out the Canvas Weekender. The bag is made from waxed army duck canvas and features Horween leather trim. It is also has a waterproof liner.If waxed canvas isn’t your thing, you can opt for this beautiful Horween leather Weekender bag that will patina beautifully with age.
