Where the traditional meets the technological.

The Portlandia Cruiser is a 1950’s silhouette wrapped in 21st century technology. Using a laminated hollow yarn flannel, the Portlandia is waterproof-breathable and windproof while retaining the soft, flexible hand of a flannel shirt. Lightly insulated with 88 g of Polartec Alpha Insulation, the Portlandia is at home in almost any type of weather. Polartec Alpha is a USA-sourced knit insulation that won’t absorb water. It is non-bulky and highly breathable, making for a lighter, more comfortable insulated garment. Modern fabric technology, superior fit features, and thoughtful design add up to a unique, limited edition style. WILD garments are made in the Pacific Northwest, right here in the USA.

Limited Edition Garments

WILD Portlandia Cruiser jackets are from a limited edition run - small batch made and individually numbered. Only 120 Buffalo Plaid jackets, and 120 Denim-style jackets have ever been produced.

The jackets have already been manufactured and are just waiting to be ordered (by you!). Items will ship as soon as the campaign ends, in time for the holidays. Feel free to contact us at with any questions.

Buffalo Plaid Cruiser

For the classic outdoorsman - our Buffalo Plaid Cruiser is made from a hollow yarn flannel that keeps you warm while also being lightweight, waterproof and breathable.

Denim-style Cruiser

We use a waterproof, breathable, 100% polyester twill for our denim-style Cruiser. This jacket is also lined with our Buffalo Plaid fabric, for added style and comfort.



These are the actual garment dimensions. You should choose a size larger than your own exact measurements. As a general guide, keep in mind this fit is smaller than Columbia Sportswear, but larger than Arc’teryx. If needed, size exchanges are available as long as there is available stock.

We use Polartec Alpha insulation in our jackets. This revolutionary synthetic insulation was developed for people in extreme conditions and is used in some of the highest rated outdoor performance gear on the planet. Polartec Alpha is warm, breathable, and very lightweight. This breathable insulation allows for air exchange and works in tandem with the WPB shell fabric to keep you dry and comfortable in a wide range of temps and activity. You don’t have to climb mountains to wear this jacket, just know that the Polartec Alpha will keep you warm during the next Polar Vortex!

Interior & Pocket Fabric

The plaid in the interior is a hollow yarn polyester brushed flannel. Hollow yarn makes the fabric light and traps air in the core of the fibers for greater insulation. It looks and feels like your favorite flannel shirt, but with performance features. The hollow yarn flannel also lines the hand pockets to keep your valuables, or your hands, warm.

Modern Smart Fit

We designed a custom articulated sleeve and action back for comfort and full range of motion. The result is a modern fit that allows you to move comfortably in a wide range of activities and still allows room to layer without being boxy.

Manufacturing Plan

I’m Dan Tiegs, founder of WILD Outdoor Apparel. I have over 15 years experience in the outdoor/ski apparel business in design, merchandising, fabric sourcing and production. I have established a network of partners that allows me to produce top quality technical garments that are highly designed, unique, and technical, all right here in the Pacific Northwest. The factory and development partners I work with are small businesses devoted to their craft.

The jackets have already been manufactured and are just waiting to be ordered. Items will ship as soon as the campaign ends (in time for the holidays), feel free to contact us at with any questions.

Limited Edition

All WILD products are Limited Edition garments, small batch made and individually numbered. Chances are strong you will never run into someone wearing the same jacket as you, preserving your individual taste with a truly unique piece. Only 120 Buffalo Plaid jackets, and 120 Denim-style jackets have been produced.

Spirit Owl

The Owl on the inside of the jacket is not meant to be a logo, but a WILD spirit animal, or type of good luck charm. The idea is that each year the spirit/charm icon will change to something different like a lynx or a bear, wolf etc. This will make each year’s product distinguishable by the icon.
