Duster, full length western cowboy riding coat

SKU: RW107 Categories: , ,


Dusters, sometimes called range coats, were originally intended to protect horseback riders from the dust of the trail. Many dusters were treated as oilcloth to make them water resistant as well. Dusters have stayed in use through many applications. When automobiles debuted, passengers were typically exposed to the elements. Dusters kept clothing relatively clean during rides on dirt roads. This canvas duster is simply cut for a slimming profile while allowing enough room for holster, vest, or day coat to be worn underneath.

The natural canvas color (white) is also appropriate as an open touring car duster for period automobile enthusiasts, 1910 – 1930. Wear with a leather cap and goggles!
