Western Duster, Interesting…

When you see a picture of a western duster, you may not think “Western Duster”. Chances are good that you’re thinking western raincoat or cowboy raincoat. Seems to me that would be pretty normal. Now picture yourself riding behind a herd of Longhorn cattle from south Texas to the rail-head in Kansas.

How many days out of that long ride were you riding in the rain as opposed to the dust those critters were kicking up. Now the “duster” part of that makes more sense, doesn’t it? Chances are you packed pretty light when you left Laredo, and a good portion of your wardrobe was under that “duster”.
