Original 100% Wool Bushshirt
Super comfy and looks rad. Just wish it also came in a double thick version for those extra cold winter days.
Absolutley fantastic garment, a real woodsmans shirt, always wear it camping out in the woods
It was love at first sight when I first saw this unique jacket over 17 years ago in Sandpoint, Idaho. It has been my winter jacket ever since. I get loads of complements because it is so rare in the United States. I love it.
This is my third Bushshirt in 30years - my kids pinch them. Whilst it seems thinner than the old ones it is still as warm as I remember. They are worth EVERY cent. I love them, you cannot fault them & they seem to last forever. At least I now own a new one - son keep my old one.
great to see that this item is still around:) had one years ago and wore it to tatters ,with the nz doller as it is i save heaps yay
I use it often over winter in the cold as well as the wet
The Rolls Royce of bush kit, mine saddly died on me over the weekend and now I have to break in a new one... The last one I had was just over 15 years old, fond memories of teh old girl, but looking to teh future with a new one, cheers swandri.
My favorite thing to wear in the bush or ice fishing. It looks good and is very warm. One of my better purchases. Can't go wrong with this one.
Can't beat this for throw on comfort and warmth, in all but the coldest weather. Always keep mine in the truck for when mother nature has her unexpected spew sessions!
Bought my Swanni in Christchurch in 1994 on layover headed for the ice. Since then it has been to the South Pole, North Pole, crossed the Chugach and Mulchatna Ranges and circled the globe several times on adventure. Now it lives on the farm in Missouri and still working after 18 years! Great Product!!!
Had this since a teenager and used it on the farm everyday. Best thing to have when you are outdoors.
A Original Kiwi icon still among the Best!
Great shirt, works well in tandem with a lightweight sleeping bag to keep your pack lighter overall. Great to wear around the campfire, or while chopping wood. Get too hot in it while walking though. Would definitely recommend, wears really hard so will last me many more years!
absolutely brilliant bush shirt. super comfortable (once you get used to the wool feeling) breathes really well, extremely warm. extremely hard wearing (mine's over 30 years old, bought second hand) i use this bush shirt all he time, it's just so super warm and cosy. mine's kept me warm on a tramp in arthur's pass which went around -20. these bush shirts are worth every cent. fantastic product. looking forward to buying another fantastic quality swanndri product, cheers.
Still the same, good quality swanni, but was disappointed that the lining wasn't sewn in like my 25yr old one was.
Nothing keeps you warmer on a freezing southern winter morning, milking the cows, than a woolly swanny!
You cannot go wrong, every man needs at least one of these! The whole process of buying online was very easy and while this one fitted I could return it if it was an incorrect size, making it a worry free purchase.
My last Swanni lasted me well over 30 years before it 'fell' off me bit by bit. I know one will last me the duration. The BEST way to keep warm and dry in the colder months
We bought this for a present for a friend. He says its perfect for his job as a farmer in Southland and wondered how he ever managed without one before now.
A solid, simple and honest product. Did me proud in the winter of Northern Ontario and will do me so again in the England's.
One of the best garments I have ever owned. It gives the cold wet weather here on our coast on the the best fights old man winter has ever seen. My friends are very envious when we are on outings and they find out how comfortable I am in my Swanndri.
only coat i can rely on to keep me warm when im working outside in the winter..
Traveled to New Zealand to get my swani, keeps the cold out and blocks the wind. some of the best wool clothing I have ever buoght.
I bought the Swandri for my boyfriend to replace his 16 yr old Swandri and he was so pleased it will make lambing far warmer. However I think the old Swandri will not be thrown away ever...
I used this amazing bushshirt in Canada and was more than satisfied with its ability to not only keep me warm on the ski fields during one of their snowiest winters but also its ability to stop the wind from chilling me to the bone whilst hanging on the ski lifts. Constantly recommend Swanndri to mates and people asking for outdoor kit. Looking forward to testing some more of your kit out in Waiouru this year. Keep up the quality and I'll keep buying it.
Can't go past an original swanni. Warm and rugged, good length, and the hood is handy. Only downside for me is the lining on the inside, it's not stitched on the bottom which means sometimes I put my arm in between the liner and outer when putting it on.
I have had my bushshirt for a few years now, it is still in great condition! So well made and high quality wool. I can see it is going to last for years to come.
This is the best bush shirt you ever need to own, It's great for when im out in the bush high up on the hills hunting deer, keeps me warm and dry .It's worth every cent I sent on it, I highly recommend this to anyone who loves the great outdoors
Bought 1960 still in great condition one small tear deerstalking Farming could not have done without my Swanni
I really wanted a Swanndri bushshirt original since I first came to NZ, and I m so happy as winter is getting close... Wish it would still be made in NZ though...
I think it's great, it's water proof, perfect for Dunedin weather. But it's a bit of a shame, that they are made in China! Swanndri is an iconic New Zealand brand renowned for their quality outdoor clothing and yet you get them made in China.
The only way in which i could improve this piece of gear is to include e a pocket or pouch to stuff my hands into. I plan to install buttons and buttonholes to enable the front flap to be folded up and used as a pouch.
I work in the Forestry industry which can be very demanding on gear, requiring toughness and durability in harsh conditions. This bush shirt has seen me warm and dry through long spells of severe rain and cold and has never let up. Years of walking through thick scrub and gorse have also left it un-torn and is always my favored jacket of choice
I have had mine since the mid eighties and it is great. It gets thrashed in winter and the only thing that will make me change it is my gut.
Very fast service, I'm very pleased with the bush shirt, my husband is going to love it!! Thank you Swanndri!
Wow, ordered Monday n received Thursday!!! Been after one o these for yonks n now finally the owner of one. Exmoor weather sucks so hopefully will stay dry n warm with this one. Cheers guys
