    A down jacket that will last.

    Some jackets will last a year or two and others will last a lifetime, and the Filson Men's Down Cruiser Parka is firmly planted in the camp of the latter. Made in America with hard-wearing fabrics, the Down Cruiser Parka is true to Filson's long history of producing quality clothing that will withstand the harshest environments not for a single winter, but for every winter you'll encounter.

    The jacket is insulated with 550-fill goose down for serious warmth, and it is housed in Filson's rugged and water-repellent oil finish Tin Cloth that will wear well whether the jacket sees most of its use in the city, or out in the hills. The shoulders and forearms are reinforced with oil finish Shelter Cloth for extra protection from wear and rain. The jacket maintains a no-frills build with a fixed, wool-lined hood and button-adjustable cuffs. The front is equipped with hand and chest pockets, while the full front zip is supported by a front button placket.

    Nice winter jacket, but not perfect

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I'll give my initial impressions after only wearing this jacket for a few weeks now since it's getting cold and this is the time to buy. This is not the perfect winter jacket to rule all winter jackets. Overall I would say this jacket has some strange compromises between functionality and aesthetics.

    Firstly, as it says in the description, the shell of this jacket is oil-finished cotton. What I didn't expect that to mean is that the jacket would be wet/oily to the touch when it arrived. So, that's actually pretty gross, but after wearing it every day for 3 weeks it has become a bit better. This also means that the jacket picks up any piece of lint or hair just as well as a lint roller does. For me spending 3-5 minutes every morning to lint-roll the jacket is an unnecessary annoyance. And then by noon it's covered in lint again. The leather gloves that I wear and store in the pockets of this jacket are now super squeaky when the fingers rub together. The car I drive in has leather seats and it looks like the seat and both arm rests have just had leather conditioner applied to them. If I had a car with cloth seats I would be very hesitant about wearing this jacket in the car. The oil finish is also soaking in to my Filson briefcase. So, for me, that is actually the worst part about this jacket. The oil-finish seems to be 100% motivated by functionality and 0% on aesthetics or anything else. That would be fine for some jackets, but it doesn't match the rest of this jacket. I think I will try to remove the oil finish and wax it with a regular wax like so many other jackets use, which for my purposes will be just as functional, won't be a lint magnet, and won't be gross.

    The handwarmer pocket openings are too small. When I put my hands in my pockets and it's freezing and windy, I like to be able to have the sleeves of the jacket make it inside the pocket as well. This is very difficult to do with this jacket since the pocket openings are so small. If the pocket opening was 1" taller it would be so much more functional. Right now it's possible to do with my small hands and wrists, but then the pocket opening is very tight around the sleeve and my wrist .

    The drawcord stoppers on this jacket are little strips of leather with two holes in them, and look really nice. But they don't work well at all. The drawcord then becomes pretty much useless because you constantly have to tighten it to prevent wind from entering the jacket from below. The ones on the hood work a little bit better because of the way the cord is routed, but still loosen up over time. So, 100% aesthetics and 0% functionality. I will be replacing these with some brass cord locks that match the rest of the jacket.

    The hood area could definitely be improved. The collar of the jacket covers my neck when fully zipped up, but does not go over my chin or mouth, which I would expect from a winter jacket. The hood has a really nice wool lining, but is not down filled. So far it has been more than warm enough, but in really cold temperatures this could be an issue. When you tighten the drawcords on the hood it pulls the hood down onto your head rather than tightening around your face to form a shroud. So even with the drawcords pretty tight, your face is still quite exposed. So you can't really fully bundle up in this jacket. Wind is still intrusive when you have everything as snug as can be. On the flipside, visibility remains excellent.

    Enough of the bad stuff. The quality of the jacket is exactly what you would expect from a Filson product. The jacket is pretty heavy and has a great feel when worn. Mobility is excellent, which comes with the large fit of the jacket. I weigh 160lbs and got the medium, which maybe is a bit big on me, but I like that I can fit a thick sweater underneath the jacket and still have great mobility. The flap pockets are great and really functional. The jacket looks classy and I'm sure it will last me years.


    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    Although I have not worn this jacket outdoors yet or have ever owned a Filson product, I am confident that it will perform well when I move back to Colorado in December. I prefer my overcoat to be slightly oversized so I can layer if needed, this jacket has enough room for a sweater or fleece pullover.

    Almost Perfect

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    Both the quality and fit of this jacket are excellent. The stitching / snaps / pockets / hood / zipper are all top notch. This is an extremely well made item. The XL fit me (typical endomorph body-type) just about perfectly through the shoulders and arms while the body was just a hair big (really liked the overall fit).

    That being said I really wanted to like this parka more, but the oil-finish Tin Cloth just isn't my cup of tea. Had to send it back. (Still rating it Five Stars though as it is one of the best made parkas I've ever tried and I'm not knocking the oil-finish, it just isn't for me.)

    My first Filson, definitely not my last

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I actually recently picked this up second-hand (your loss, previous owner!). The parka immediately makes an impression with build quality and a versatile look that works in a casual, professional, or outdoors setting. My previous Eddie Bauer goose down parka was starting to look worse for wear after 15 years, and I was in the market for something that would be a reasonable option for the office while also standing up to harsh Minnesota winters.

    I'm a little over 6'0'' and 175 lbs with a slim athletic build and broad shoulders, and I usually go with large size outerwear depending on the manufacturer. Based on previous reviews I decided to try out the medium and it works well. I would say that I'm about at the tail end of fit for the Medium, as I get just the slightest tugs in the chest and back when I swing my arms. The cut is somewhere between regular and tailored, with otherwise good movement.

    As others have noted, the tin cloth looks to be somewhat of a lint magnet, which really stands out against the stark black material. Not a big deal if you've got a lint roller handy.

    Although it's only early Fall, I can immediately feel the warmth of the parka after I put it on. Eager to see how it handles early morning snowblowing of mid-January in Minnesota!

    Incredible Jacket!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I purchased this parka at an unbelievable 45% off. I wore it while visiting NYC where the temperatures were in the single digits and the winds were howling and this jacket kept me incredibly warm. Although the four front pockets are quite accommodating, I wish it had a few more interior pockets.
    It picked up a lot of lint, due to the tin oil cloth finish, but it wasn't anything duct and/ or masking tape didn't remove with relative ease. The Gear Heads advise this will improve with use. It fits like a glove, this is fantastic jacket that I will wear for years to come.

    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I already have a Filson wool cruiser that I wear in the shoulder seasons. Had it for 7 years and the build quality is exceptional. I'll probably hand it down to my grandkids some day. But I wanted something warmer for the cold months so when I saw this jacket on sale I jumped on it. Filson products might seem expensive, but when you consider the quality you are getting they are actually pretty cheap. I'm of the "buy it once" philosophy and it is impressive that you can get such a high quality American made garment for this price.

    This past weekend was our coldest weather of the year, and the jacket did a great job of keeping me warm while out gathering firewood. Temps were in the single digits with wind chills far below that, but I was cozy inside this thing (I did wear a sweater underneath). I even starting unzipping the jacket as I began to overheat while working.

    The build quality on this is exactly what I would expect from Filson: outstanding. The 550 down weight is kind of a sweet spot. It allows you to layer for extreme temps but I'm guessing that if the weather was in the 20s or 30s I wouldn't need or want to. I also love the oiled cloth. Whereas a down coat would quickly succumb to sleet or freezing rain, you can tell this thing would just shrug it off. In my experience oil cloth only looks better the more you beat it up; so I'm looking forward to when this thing is really worn in and has a nice patina.

    The fit is great. I initially ordered the large based on some other reviews, but I found that way too loose. I want room for layering, but don't want to look like I'm a kid playing dress up (and have wind whip through a loose garment). I returned for a medium and am very happy with the fit. The medium allows room for layering, but is still snug and warm. I appreciate the tailored "Seattle" fit on this coat as my only complaint regarding my other Filson jacket was that it seemed too loose/bulky.

    The hood is functional, though not the warmest as it is just wool lined and not down. Still, that works for me as I'm frequently wearing ear protection when I use my snow blower, chainsaw, etc. With the hood up, you get weather protection and decent insulation with room for a hat/helmet or other gear if needed.

    I'm really looking forward to putting this coat through its paces for the remainder of this winter, and for many winters to come.

    quality product.

    I was fortunate to catch this jacket 20% off on one one of backcountry's awesome sales. Even at the full price of $695, I would still stand behind this purchase. If you're familiar with the brand, most of the filson garments are manufactured here in the US and are backed by a lifetime warranty. This jacket is no different. An absurdly warm fashionable jacket, that will last for years and years. My one mildly negative comment is that this jacket is kind of a lint magnet. it may be the oil finish in the tin cloth, but I'm assuming this will diminish over time as the jacket is broken in. I'm 6'0 tall and about 200 lbs and i went with the large. Fits well with a little extra room for layers.
    I would recommend this jacket.

    I can'€™t always wear that ultralight micro down puffy. As awesome as it is, it sometimes doesn'€™t make the cut - both in terms of fashion, and staving off the biting wind and cold. Sometimes the occasion calls for some cozier, something more substantial, something more refined.

    The Filson Down cruiser is my new go to jacket when the temps are low and I want to bring a bit of the warmth of home with me. I'm 5'€™10''€™ 165 lbs and the large fits a bit loose, but in that excellent way where it lets you be as mobile as you'd like, but stays close to your body to keep you warm. I would recommend fitting true to size here for that fit, for something more snug size down.
    Even without its wax treatment (which I eventually did apply and it works GREAT!) €“ this jacket kept me dry during an onslaught of grapple and sleet. The exterior fabric is a bit firm at first but becomes much more supple and soft the more you wear it.

    Recently, I took this jacket on a road trip with some fellow employees here at -€“ In an effort to recreate the grand adventures of generations past -€“ we traveled north from Salt Lake City along Highway 89 to Jackson Hole -€“ stopping to climb, fish, ski -€“ and have a few NIGHTS out on the town and Apres on the hill. I chose this jacket primarily for the warmth aspect - but also because of its comfort. Comfort in not only a cozy way, but in a confidence inspiring jacket that I was able to wear over my ski pants, a pair of blue jeans, and flannels shirts.
    We encountered a late spring blizzard and I picked this over my technical shell and down puffy. Why? Because it could stand up to the conditions, and we had some beers to drink and nachos to eat!
    It also kept me warm out by the campfire -and interestingly didn'€™t soak in any of the smell like often my other jackets will.
    The goose down is incredibly insulating and extremely comfortable. This jacket is not generally lightweight by any means - but it isn'€™t meant to be -€“ it wears like a hug.
    Like I mentioned, the cruiser is my non-recreating jacket of choice - because of its neutral colors it works well with most of my flannels and jeans -€“ and can stand up to the worst of winter conditions.
    Cruise on!

    Hi, I can't find chest measurements. I am 6ft tall, short waisted (thus having long arms) and weigh about 145lbs. Generally have difficulty with fitting because I often wind up between S and M. I prefer a more tailored fit. What size is recommended?

    Hey Moose,

    I would recommend you go with a Small in the Filson Down Cruiser Parka if you are looking for a more tailored fit. I am 6'1", 180 lbs and the Medium fit me best but there was still room to layer. Feel free to contact me directly with any more questions about this or other Filson jackets or if you are interested in setting up an order.
