I had a tarp once made from waxed (I think) cotton duck. It was great. It held out water and snow, it was tough and heavy, and (until it ripped) was better than a woven poly tarp that doesn’t just die when it dies, but dissolves. Slowly. With annoying pieces of never-going-to-go-away plastic shedding everywhere.

This so-called trucker jacket, even though it’s by a consumer brand Huckberry, reminds me of my old tarp. The waxed fabric doesn't look like plastic but more like fleece, and it also looks tough enough for jobsite life. Like it’ll shed some water and break some wind and not get in the way of reaching into nail bags. It looks like a great layer for when it snows.

And, it looks great. I’m not sure I’d stitch my logo on a $185 jacket; however, customers do judge by appearances.

It comes in six colors, but Field Tan is the closest to my old tarp, so that’s what I’d get. The Martexin 7-ounce sail cloth looks rip resistant too. At $185, it looks like this would be easier to lose than tear.

The video looks a little hipster-y. But it shows a guy carrying firewood, so the jacket must be tough. Check it out.
