Overland prides itself on offering customers high-quality sheepskin merchandise, including stunning coats and the ubiquitous UGG Australia boots. Although the main focus of this company, which began as a small adobe store in Taos, New Mexico, is its sheepskin products, Overland also sells items made from equally luxurious, high-quality materials such as cashmere, fur and leather.
This company is no fly-by-night operation that was created to satisfy the UGG frenzy of the early 2000s. In fact, Overland traces its beginnings to 1973, when a young man named Jim Leahy began crafting beautiful yet durable accessories such as slippers, hats and mittens, as well as gorgeous coats out of a bale of sheepskin. Working out of that little Taos store, Leahy created all of his sheepskin items by hand. His handsome products soon developed a devoted following.
By 1977, Leahy's family had joined him in the business, which they expanded until it now offers more than 1,500 different products that include clothing, accessories, home and automotive accessories. Many of the items have a Western flair to them.
The company is best known for its large selection of coats, especially its sheepskin choices. Coats made from sheepskin provide wearers with unsurpassed warmth. The shearling lining is a natural insulation that helps retain body warmth and the outer leather or suede portion protects its wearer from the wind. In fact, sheepskin-lined coats were used during World War II to keep bomber pilots warm at 30,000-feet altitudes in unpressurized cabins. This famous short style of coat is still known as a bomber jacket today.
Sheepskin is also a very durable material, meaning that a coat today will last its owner for a long time into the future. Sheepskin coats are also much more stylish than the fat puffer coats that so many people wear during the winter.
Overland also offers coats and vests made a variety of other materials, including unlined leather, cashmere, and wool. To save money on purchases from Overland, customer should look for promo or coupon codes before finalizing their purchase.
In addition to its coats, Overland also carries a large selection of footwear. Its extensive offering of UGGs includes the brand's popular suede Classic versions, as well as less familiar models, such as the fashionable lace-up Caspia. In addition to UGGs, Overland also carries many other brands of shearling lined and non-lined boots, shoes and slippers. This company also carries a full line of accessories including shearling hats, gloves and belts.
Overland offers a children's accessories line, as well, that includes adorable little hats, sheepskin boots, and even adorable stuffed animals created from incredibly soft and fluffy alpaca fur.
This company's home accessory line includes cowhide and sheepskin accent rugs and pillows to give a home that rugged Western feel. For your car, Overland offers sheepskin seat covers that protect an owner's thighs from sticking to hot seats in the summer time and their tushies from freezing on cold leather seats in the winter. Sheepskin seat covers will also protect your seats from wear and tear or cover damaged ones.
