Watch out, Carhartt, one of the stalwarts of outdoor activewear is making a play for your turf. That will be Patagonia who just released a brand new workwear collection. And our favorite of the lot has to be the Patagonia Iron Forge Hemp Canvas Ranch Jacket.
Made from a special fabric that’s 25 percent more abrasion-resistant than cotton duck canvas, the field jacket should handle the roughest and dirtiest jobs, ensuring it’s going to hold up whether in a muddy farm, a windy construction site, or a dusty workshop. They combine that fabric with a relaxed fit that ensures you can move without hindrance at any angle, allowing you to perform any physical job with complete mobility.
The Patagonia Iron Forge Hemp Canvas Ranch Jacket has a shell made from a blend of industrial hemp, recycled polyester, and organic cotton, with an insulated lining of Thermogreen polyester for keeping you toasty during chillier days. It has a bi-swing back to facilitate better freedom of movement, while both the elbows and forearms come reinforced with an extra panel of fabric. Suffice to say, this jacket is built for working with your hands, regardless of the setting.
Features include a corduroy collar, YKK zippers with oversized metal pulls that you can grab even with work gloves on, a full-length placket with snaps, rib-knit internal cuffs, two snap-closure pleated chest pockets, and two hand warmer pockets with brushed fleece lining. It comes in two colors: brown and black.
Available now, the Patagonia Iron Forge Hemp Canvas Ranch Jacket is priced at $179.
