Brown duck was the genius creation of Hamilton Carhartt. His brown duck bib overalls for railroad workers revolutionized clothing for the working class. These overalls were first recorded in a 1915 newspaper article that described the new "wonderful brown Carhartt's."
This brown duck bib is still in the Carhartt stable and remains as popular as it was when originally introduced. Hamilton Carhartt’s brown duck serves as a reminder that great quality never goes out of fashion.
Today, we’ve increased our duck line across the board for men’s, women’s and accessories.
Our toughest duck isn’t actually cotton at all—it’s made from 1000-denier CORDORA® nylon, which is so tough and abrasion-resistant we use it in our Yukon Extremes styles, made for the toughest conditions. It’s wind-resistant and highly water repellent.
Find it in gear like our Yukon Extremes Active Jac and our Yukon Extremes Coverall.

If you like sandstone duck, you’ll like our washed duck. This fabric feels exactly like it sounds—we took our durable, classic duck, and washed it for a broken-in look and feel. It breaks in faster than duck, and looks newer, longer.
