Beagle's trademark wool outerwear starts with tight weave, 22 oz. Melton wool made from 22 oz. Melton wool (80% wool/20% nylon) that is then treated with innovative materials.
Treatment #1 - DuPont Teflon Fabric Protector - It provides a stain and water repellent barrier.
Treatment #2 - Fabtex 5x membrane - A thin layer of breathable film is added to most garments, which stops wind and water from passing through, keeping you warmer and drier than simple wool.

beagle outdoor wear
Nothing to do with dogs, and the wrong time of year for this... but just found Beagle Outdoor Wear, a Vermont based, made in USA, classic outdoor outfitter -been going since 1999. In the Johnson Wool mold to be sure but good to know. Jackets come in 3 different weights (Extreme, Stalker, Tracker) then the shorter Beagle [like -ed.] Sidenote: they have the pants on sale in an alternate charcoal grey herringbone for $160ish; beats their normal $280.
