Waxed jackets have become increasingly popular with guys because they strike a balance between a rugged and refined aesthetic. Though timeless, their popularity was bolstered last after Pedro Pascal’s character used one to fight mushroom zombies in HBO’s The Last of Us. That jacket was made by Flint and Tinder, and one very similar to it just got a massive discount amid Huckberry’s winter sale.
Right now, the Flint and Tinder Wool-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket is on sale at Huckberry for as low as $232—a whopping 35% off the original $358 price tag. With more than 225 five-star ratings, these jackets very rarely go on sale. But right now they’re yours to score in dark green and dark brown.

Flint and Tinder’s Wool-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket is made right in Los Angeles and features an 8.5-ounce weather-resistant shelter cloth shell that develops a gorgeous patina the more it’s worn. The jacket is waxed on both sides for optimal performance and is re-waxable for the duration of its lifetime. It’s lined with warm Japanese wool blanket cloth throughout the interior with a slick polyester quilted sleeve liner that allows shirt sleeves to not bunch when putting it on. Like traditional trucker jackets, there are two side entry hand pockets (each lined with wool), a button chest pocket, and also an interior pocket.
This jacket is practically identical to the one Pascal wore in the show, with one major difference: the lining. Whereas the latter has a flannel lining, this one is heavier, donning the wool. Doing so instantly ups the warm factor and makes it a better option for winter wear. It’s also worth noting that sizing must be considered when shopping these trucker jackets. If they’ll be worn with heavy layers underneath, the brand and shoppers both recommend sizing up. If it’s going to be worn more as a top layer on T-shirts, your normal size will do well.

Aside from offering advice with sizing, shoppers say they love this jacket because it’s cozy and comfortable, it works in cold weather, and of course, it looks amazing as part of an outfit. “In Forest, this jacket has the look of vintage leather in a classically rugged style,” one shopper stated. “The fit is trim (I’m 6 foot 1 and 160 pounds, and the medium fits like a glove), but the canvas is softer than I expected and there’s nothing tight about it. Great material, workmanship, and cut.”
Some shoppers have tested the limits of this wool-lined jacket, even down to freezing temperatures. “I opted for the wool lining and I am glad I did,” a shopper said. “It’s warm enough for a chilly 32 to 40-degree day in Colorado. Color is great and just the right thickness of material for comfort and enough mobility.”
When Flint and Tinder waxed jackets like this one go on sale at Huckberry, especially when they’re priced in the low $200s, sizes typically don’t last long. So if you’ve had one of these on your mind and your size is still available, pull the trigger and save while you still can. If the size you need is sold out, you might also consider the Waxed Shirt Jacket as a lighter but still protective option, or even the Waxed Hudson Jacket for something similarly substantial.
