The Knotts Island Waxed Sportsman's Jacket: Timeless Style Steeped in Currituck Waterfowling History
Embark on a timeless adventure with the Knotts Island Waxed Sportsman's Jacket, a garment that epitomizes the fusion of traditional style and modern craftsmanship. Named in honor of the historic waterfowling haven, Knotts Island, this jacket is more than an item of clothing—it's a tribute to the gentlemanly spirit of sportsmen who created the rich waterfowling tradition of the Currituck Sound.
Waxed Cotton Hunting Jacket Handcrafted in Britain
Expertly handcrafted in the U.K. by Britain's leading waxed garment maker—a family business steeped in prestige since 1968—this jacket stands as a testament to British field wear at its best. The heavyweight 12 oz waxed fabric, hailing from a mill over 150 years old on Scotland's rugged northeast coast, is sanforised to prevent shrinkage, ensuring this piece can be passed down through generations without losing its impeccable fit.
Old School Duck Camo Liner
The interior is lined with our exclusive FrogSkin Camo pattern, a nod to old school duck camo designs, while the collar boasts rich corduroy with an enhanced size and throat strap for unyielding protection against strong coastal winds. Functionality meets durability with an ultra-strong YKK antique brass two-way zipper and a removable hood tailored for adjustable coverage.
Head into the elements with the confidence of a removable hood that keeps you dry in the heaviest coastal squall. Five brass snaps secure your hood in place when in use. With the collar folded down and hood removed, the brass snaps fade away under the color preserving a gentlemanly appearance.
Classic Style Meets Modern Functionality
Functional elegance is at the heart of this design: two bellows pockets with drainage grommets provide ample storage for your fowling cartridges and gear; hand warmer pockets offer solace from the chill as you await your quarry; a classic accessory pouch on the left chest echoes the legacy of your grandfather's sporting coat. Meanwhile, two zippered gamekeeper pockets add practicality without compromising style, and adjustable waist tabs cater to both relaxed and tailored preferences.
ActionBACK™ Expanding Gussets
The jacket's ActionBACK™ expanding gussets afford freedom of movement when it’s time to address your target—an essential feature for the discerning marksman. Whether you're braving the marshes or recounting tales of hunts past by the fireside, the Knotts Island Waxed Sportsman's Jacket stands as a bastion of tradition and an emblem of modern craftsmanship.
