About Western Duster Coats
A cowboy is rough and tumble to the core, but facing the elements is no fun, whether on the ranch or out on the town. A fancy trench coat does not exactly fit in with rough leather work gloves, but you still need the all-weather protection of a long coat in some instances. Western duster coats fit the bill, giving you that rugged, fresh-off-the-range look while offering practical protection from the elements. Many types, such as oilskin duster coats, are water-resistant as well as warm. Originally designed to keep dust off cowboys' clothes while they rode, long duster coats typically sport a slit up the back from the bottom to hip level to make sitting on a horse easier. Although still useful for modern cowboys, the slit often makes walking easier, and many dusters include button closures for people who prefer a more streamlined fit. Western duster coats work best for people who shy away from the flamboyant; dusters usually come in just a few neutral colors, such as black, tan, or brown. The trusted sellers on eBay provide a variety of western duster coats to choose from in materials that include leather, denim, and corduroy. Nothing says a cowboy cannot exude grit and elegance at the same time.
