Storm Rider

It's a manly name that evokes images of stonefaced cowboys hustling cattle in a sudden downpour of the Southwestern mesa lands...

The smell of cool rain on the hot red soil warns of a looming storm on the horizon. A gust of wind from the direction of the storm tells him it'll be a gully washer. His horse acts timid as sheets of rain rush towards him.
Thankfully the cowboy is wearing his "Storm Rider" jacket. The denim shell and wool blanket lining will keep him both warm and dry. The cowboy pops his corderoy collar as raindrops begin to fall.





The Storm Rider is a manly jacket born out of the necessity of protection on the range. Most examples found today date from the 1960s and 1970s but have that great Golden Era look about them. The Storm Rider came in two styles: lined with a blanket and unlined. The tag even shows a cowboy weathering a storm. It can't get more manly than that.



Or can it?
Steve McQueen...


...and Clint Eastwood think it can...
