Not your flimsy paper thin grocery store flannel here no sir. "They don't make them like they used to" definitely applies to flannels in most cases... But I did (make 'em like they used to). This flannel is built so tough it'll make your grandpa proud. Such heavy weight fabric it has me questioning my shipping prices. These will be in my closet ready to hand down to my kids a dozen years from now... they're that good. I wear it like a jacket most of the time, and with a hoody underneath when it's cold.
