About the Riders Jacket Waxed Canvas Tumbleweed

The Riders Jacket, or RJ-1 for short, was one of the first jackets we ever designed. It is a unique mix of a classic ranch jacket combined with a riding jacket. The front pleats expand with movement along with the shoulder gussets in the back. Construction highlights include 1/8” stitch details and custom metal hardware made exclusively for Freenote Cloth.

The RJ-1 is equipped with our signature action back for added mobility. Hidden elastic bands in the interior of the jacket help keep the shoulder gussets in place and allow for ease of movement in this heavy piece. In addition, the sleeves are lined with a cotton/rayon blend to make the jacket easier to put on and take off.

Great jacket but threads coming loose after only a few wears

This is a great fitting jacket with heavy canvas that works well in the rain. I am 5'10 145 pounds and wear a Medium. The internal fabric makes this a great fall jacket for the PNW.

My only complaint is that the threads on the back right shoulder blade where the sleeve meets the gusset have already started coming undone after only a few times wearing it. I have many other items from Freenote and I have never had a problem with quality control so this was probably a one off issue.

The Rocking and Rugged Riders Jacket Waxed Canvas/Tumbleweed - Medium

This excellent and timeless jacket will stand the test of time. It is so well made with handcrafted construction and the finest materials. The jacket always receives compliments. The color is light neutral and goes with everything. I am 5'7," 170 lbs, 32" waist, 40 short jacket, modest athletic build, and a 60-year-old male. The medium fits perfectly and allows for layering with a medium-weight shirt or sweater - true to size. It also works well with a T-shirt. The lining provides warmth and comfort. I live in NYC, and this makes for a stylish, three-season jacket. Well worth the money spent. Cheers to the Feenote Cloth team. They provide excellent customer service and a great product. It rocks!

Tumbleweed Riders Jacket

I have been a Filson man for 40 years. Closet of various wax jackets (also Barbour and Bestaff). The Riders Jacket is superior in every way to the current foreign-made Filsons. Sorry to say. Beautifully made, rugged, great buttons. It will be my new go-to. For sizing, I am 5’10 190, very athletic build. 42 Reg in a business suit and 34” sleeve in a dress shirt. I bought Large. It fits like it was made for me. If you have broad shoulders, I suggest you size up. Medium would have been way too small. It will fit a vest underneath, but not a bulky sweater. Definitely will be back for more.

Tumbleweed RJ1

This is my first Freenote Cloth Riders Jacket. I originally came across the jacket as I was in the market for a rugged waxed jacket. I was initially interested in RT waxed supply jacket but heard that it was quite slim fitting. For reference, I am 5'9 and 180lbs with a 40" chest and an athletic build. I originally ordered the medium and when I tried it on I thought it was slimmer than what I wanted. I called up and spoke with Drew and talked through sizing. He advised that the medium should stretch out and conform to my body. I wanted to size up to a large to see how I felt before I made a final decision. The only time the large fit 'well' was when I layered a heavy sweatshirt or something thick underneath. Wearing just a plain t-shirt the large was too big. I went back with the medium and can say that it is the 'better' fit for me and in time I expect it to break in nicely. Overall amazing customer service and really appreciate the fast shipping and accommodations for helping me get the sizing right! Would buy from again!


Amazing jacket!
