XIT Ranch
Schaefer Outfitter

A partnership born of common values.

Over a year in the making, our partnership with the legendary XIT Ranch was launched thanks to common values: hard work, resilience, the preservation and continuation of ranching heritage, and the responsibility of a life devoted to the land.

With a history and legacy that spans centuries, the XIT Ranch is dedicated to land stewardship and production of the highest quality cattle and ranch horses.

We proudly accepted the opportunity to outfit the hard-working individuals of XIT Ranch with a collection of garments built with their input to stand up to the rigors of their hard work today, tomorrow, and every day after.

Schaefer Outfitter exists to outfit those who face the harsh realities of life devoted to the land and keep them comfortable in every situation.

After a year of field testing, we are honored to present the first of many products built in collaboration with the XIT Team.


Built to the working standards of the XIT Team, these products have passed over a year of field testing with flying colors.

Channing Shirt

RangeTek Western Guide Snap Shirt

A performance powerhouse that pays homage to XIT Ranch's home.


Dalhart Jacket

Zip Canvas Jacket

This sturdy staple is a nod to the nearby town of Dalhart, an agricultural hub of the panhandle and the epicenter of the Dust Bowl.


Cowboy Tested, Cowboy Approved

We had very specific requests for the Zip Canvas Jacket on things like the bi-swing shoulder pleat and they delivered. Their team understands what it means to make clothes that really work and it's the small details that make all the difference.

Ben Lard
Ranch Manager

The reason we work with Schaefer Outfitter is simple: they listen, and then they go execute. It's the true definition of a partnership. We live in their gear and it's always held up it's end of the bargain.

Drew Knowles
Owner, XIT Ranch

Every morning man, I'm just reaching for Schaefer Outfitter gear. It has really become the daily uniform for all of the team here. In the Panhandle, the last thing you want is to be exposed. We need dependable stuff we don't have to think about.
