Dust Coat – Different colors and sizes.
Assorted Dust Coats – Variety of sizes and colors
A duster is a light, loose-fitting long coat. The original dusters were full-length, light-colored canvas or linen coats worn by horsemen. To protect their clothes from dust. These dusters were typically slit up the back to hip level for ease of wear on horseback and were the recommended “uniform” for Texas Rangers.
Dusters intended for riding may have features such as a buttonable rear slit and leg straps to hold the flaps in place. For better protection against rain, dusters were made from oilcloth and later from waxed cotton.
At the turn of the twentieth century, both men and women wore dusters to protect their clothes when riding in open motorcars on the dirt roads of the day.
