Woolrich Inc. was founded in Pennsylvania 1830 by John Rich and Daniel McCormick and is the oldest manufacturer of outdoor wear in the United States. The company was founded for the purpose of manufacturing fabric for the wives of hunters, loggers and trappers. Later, the company also outfitted clothing supplies to the American Civil War, and Richard E. Byrd's 1939–1940 Antarctic expedition. This jacket is an absolute bargain, so grab it while you can!
