Swanndri Men's Original Wool Bushshirt with Lace-up front
Absolutely awesome piece of clothing. I use it for hunting and it is ideal. Good heavy hood to stop it flapping around in the wind, heavy weave to stop the majority of rain. Highly recommend it.
This jacket is all you need. I wear it everyday at work as a Landscaper. I wear it fishing on the weekends, rugby games and hunting in the kaimanawas. Love it like all Swanndri gear.
Great working top, very warm and brilliant out on the farm in all weathers, I've two of these tops now.
These Bushshirts are the toughest, warmest coat I have ever owned, and ever worn. They are a brilliant value for money, and recommend these to anyone who is in search of a warm and tough.
The best gear I have, I get the sleeves shortened to just below my elbow and that makes this bush top perfect, sleeve stays out of the way when sticking a pig or cooking a feed, this is serious all weather gear, trust me, wind, hail or snow there is no other option.
I had a Swanndri many years ago and had always promised myself another one , Should not have waited its still a quality plus garment that keeps out the cold fits well and just looking to get back to the Victorian High country where this will be right at home. Also delivery to my door in 3 working days in Australia, fantastic, just love everything about Swanndri
Awesome jacket lives up to the expectation
Brought this shirt for my partner. A really good shirt - a good fit, good quality material & getting heaps of use on these cold winter days. Not often hes raves about clothing!!! Would recommend this product!
Great bit of kit super warm and dry have absolutely trashed it since purchase snow, rain mud or shine.
Always wanted one and finally got one (the less common navy blue version). Love it! Destined to become family heirloom for sure! Love socks that came with it too and keen to get another pair. Kids may be less excited about inheriting dad's used socks though.
Swanndri is very warm, drys very well, recently wore one fishing for several days and withstood the elements perfectly, drys quickly by the campfire and doesn't soak up nasty things like blood while gutting a fish, great product. I only wish it had a hip pocket or two.
Just arrived the shirt fits perfectly with quality plus feel. Can't wait to get out. Was ordered Saturday with delivery by courier on the Wednesday to Sydney Metro. Fantastic.
The fabric on this Bushshirt is outstanding, very dense and all weather proof.All materials used are first class. I totally respect Swanndri for still making these classic quality and stylish shirts. The fit is superb, as well as the design, actually I have nothing more to add....my compliments
Well where do I start, LOVE THE PRODUCT, I bought one for my hubby when we were in nz about 13 yrs ago, it was getting a bit on the thin side, so I decided to buy a new one. I purchased the bush shirt with hood this time. I was surprised in how much longer the hood one was. Quite a bit different in length. He would of preferred it to be the same lengh as the shorter one. Oh well love the product and thanks for the socks, nice and worm !!
I bought this for my husband and it is probably the best thing he's ever owned! Warm, looks great and will last a lifetime.The sizing is great but definitely go one size smaller than usual as they r very roomy! He said its like wearing a blanket!! Would recommend every wife to buy 1 for their hubby
This is a madness jacket would recommend :)
As an Aussie I have wanted one of these bushshirts for some years as I have Kiwi mates with them. Finally got around to buying one and wished I did it years ago. Perfect for Sydney winter boating. Stoked with my purchase and delivered free 2 days later!
Tthis is an incredibly practical and comfortable piece of outdoor clothing. Highly recommend it!
I bought this Swanndri as a secret gift for my husband. I ordered it in the early hours of a Wednesday morning and it arrived Friday morning of the same week. I have never been so impressed with the service from swanndri.co.nz Great communication throughout the process from sale to delivery. The Swanndri was a success for my husband and the fit is perfect. Quality material and quality made. Thank you Swanndri you guys are legends.
Owned one of these 30yrs ago and it disappeared somewhere... Decided recently to get another... Exactly the same, very happy I got another... This one Im hanging onto... Fantastic fit... Couldn't ask for better... Well recommended... Buy one,in fact, Buy two...!!! Socks are great too...

Absolutely beautiful piece of clothing! The olive black check is very subtle, which is a good thing. Quality is high and overall appearance is awesome / handsome! I want everyone in the family to own one of these now, so so warm and keeps you dry too. Much better choice than a puffer jacket if you ask me. Absolute value for money too, will last forever. Thanks very much.
Great product - My sons and I were riding buggies on the weekend in the Central West of NSW admiring the snow. Looks like the boys want Bush shirts now.
I specifically needed something that was not going to end up with holes in it from a camp fire. The only issue I have with it is that it is a little bit scratchy when worn with a short sleeve shirt. In all honesty that is not really a problem though, if it is cold enough for the bush shirt I most likely will be wearing a long sleeve shirt. The sizing guide was also excellent and allowed me to get the perfect size.
We bought this bush shirt for our son's birthday, and he loves it! It's a great length to keep him really warm.
Awesome Swanni really enjoy it and like the look and the feel of it
Awesome.... I live in it outside and in!!
Great for wearing to rugby games when standing on the sideline to break that Wellington chill. Was very happy with online sizing guide and how accurate it was ,I am quiet a large person so this was very helpful and happy they had them in my size
Awesome jacket, have got 3 of these now, keeps you warm even when you get wet, great for carrying wild pigs out of the bush.
I pinched my dad's swannie when I was 14 (that he had had longer than I had been alive)and went through a running battle every few years with him about it, so when on my 23rd birthday my girlfriend at the time got me a new swannie as a present I knew she was a keeper and is now my wife. I now have a baby boy on the way and looking forward to passing my swannie onto him one day... reluctantly!
Best thing ever. in Victoria high country -1deg in the morning and I was warm. Best clothes you can get to stay warm in in cold conditions
Good for working in. Breathable. Good for changeable weather conditions. Keeps you insulated/cool in warm weather.
Husband loves his bush shirt, a classic.
"Durable and fashionable" is what the slogan should read - you'll find me fashioning my new swanning at Woodhill 4wd Adventure Park on Saturday morning, and at Moretons in St Heliers on Saturday evening. A Bushshirt for every occasion.
From:ricardo de lee
What's the point of a review? The thing is damn near perfect for the bush and farm work, it's tough, doesn't rip, holds off even west coast rain and doesn't melt when put too close to the fire place to dry. Good protection - even against wayward angle grinders (trust me - I've found that out in practice). The only thing wrong with it is not widely available in stores - there was one poncy outfit that proudly proclaimed that they have no products in crossbred wool - what a bunch of drongos.
Pleased with Ranger shirt so invested in Bushshirt. The quality and comfort great but the fit of the hood, and protection given by the garment surprised me. Seems to stand up to dirt and wear, and no problems when working with fires.
I'm a shepherd and this bushshirt is great in the winter when I'm out mustering.
2nd Swanndri I have. Bought the 1st one back in 1988. Still works well...Just a little too snug, from my expansion and not Swanndri shrinking. 2nd one just as good as the first. Great to see the quality has not dropped in the last 28 years.
This bush shirt is fantastic! It is of an excellent quality and will be worn for years to come. Would definitely recommend a swanndri bush shirt!
Love this shirt. It's comfortable, well made and functional. I've taken it out bush a fair bit though admittedly have yet to test it under 5C yet, hope to do that this winter. The hood sits well and still provides good visibility when swivelling your head. I also use a belt to cinch the middle for more warmth. A great addition to my outdoor gear!
Purchased it for a Christmas present. Awesome jacket, going to be great for ice fishing
A true kiwi classic. Wore it for the first time last weekend. Snug as a bug-in-a-rug. Covers everything unlike most jackets etc. Very happy with my purchase.
Imagine a grown man almost fizzing with excitement when they realise the gift they are opening - this is how much my boyfriend wanted a swannie. In the last few days of autumn he made sure to wear it and is looking longingly at it waiting for the colder weather. The story's of all the role models he had growing up who lived in these shirts means you are buying a bit of history - love it!
Fantastic product. Great here in the cold north - Norway. Allround use. Getting to work on those cold, windy days or spotting for deer in the mountains. Only thing I miss is a front pocket to warm my hands.
I recently bought a bushshirt for my 20year old son. He is an apprentice builder and is just stoked with it. The quality is excellent and it's an iconic design - fingers crossed he doesn't lose it or I guess I'll be buying another one .
I've been wearing mine for around 15 years. I work on a nature reserve and use it for chainsawing, logging and fencing and it's handy for laying over barbed wire for safe access across fences too. Despite all this, it still looks as good as new. They're not as windproof or packable as something synthetic, but are much more breathable and hard wearing.
I have bought this style for my grandson for his 21st birthday. He has inherited an old one from his late grandfather who has had it for 40 yrs. One or two small repairs but hey this certainly makes a good recommendation for anyone thinking of buying one.
I ordered the traditional red and black check Swanndri Bushshirt for our son's 20th birthday. He is over the moon with it! It's a generous sizing so Large fit him perfectly rather than an XL as he had first thought. I can see this bushshirt lasting him forever! Highly recommended!
One buys a Swanndri product because they know the brand is trusted by so many in extreme conditions. Don't question the legend that is Swanndri.
Great product, expensive so not great value for money and a bit scratchy against the skin. But warm, wind proof and hard wearing.
Very impressed with the service I received from this company. Received my order in seven days which is impressive for delivery to Canada. Bushshirt was impressive as well and in Canada we know a bit something about cold weather.
Fantastic! Brought this for a Father's Day gift and it's been the best gift yet! Had to get one for my son too. Sizing is on the large side which is a good thing but measure well before purchase :)
I have to start by saying that he sound, helpful advice and quick service form this company was world-class. The Swanndri Bushshirt is my husbands prized possession and not just because it is an iconic NZ symbol. He owns one because of the quality materials used, solid construction, smart and functional design which is made to withstand the elements and keep you cosy. The Swanndri Bushshirt in our opinion is not just an investment but a wise one.
Awesome service with prompt delivery. The bush-shirt is the original style that is popular in the Eastern Bay of Plenty. Thanks for the service.
This is what our client had wanted for a long time and they are now a very happy warm team, working hard out in the weather and keeping warm. They love them.
This is a great product for a variety of tasks. Keeps you extremely warm, extra length keeps bottom warm on the motorbike also. Excellent quality also.
Brought this as a gift for my father, he has worn it on the farm everyday except once when it was in the wash! So warm and comfortable and great they come in kids sizes so his granddaughter can be just like her grandad. Very happy with this purchase.
These last few weeks on the building site have been very warm on the icey mornings since perchesing my swandrii bush shirt. I recommend them to anybody looking for an all round warm and comfortable jacket.
Excellent product, so warm.
Love my swannie so much I'm going to buy the other 3 colours!! It's like wearing a blanket
My new Swanndri arrived and I was stoked! I was sad when I found they were no longer made in NZ however the quality is still fantastic. I remember when everyone who worked outside.had one New Zealand Rail , ministry of works & every farmer and forestry worker I knew. So for me its a garment that has a lot of memories attached. Keep up the good work and may you never stop making them.
This shirt is extremely warm and durable. The inner and long torso allow for extra comfort . The arms are a tad uncomfortable, however, to cure this, simply reach into the easily accessible chest pocket and grab a concrete pill.
Stoked as to finally have an olive green 'swanny'. It is a great fit, warm and looks this biz when I put it on. And it's solid, very happy with my pruchase.
Literally the best thing I ever bought. So warm, so dry. Who needs a sleeping bag. I will wear this forever. Thank you God's of Swanndri
I brought the original mens Swanndri bushshirt for my son who really feels the cold. He had one when he was much younger and he loved it then and loves his new one even more now. He thinks everyone should have one. I was very pleasantly surprised that it arrived in Australia from NZ so quickly. I ordered it on a Sunday night and it arrived in OLD the following Thursday. Very good service.
Love my bush shirt. Keeps me warm and dry and very comfortable to wear all day
Absolutely austonished with how amazing this bushshirt is!! It's perfect for our southland weather!! Really wish I had brought one years ago!!
I've had 4 over the years working as a fisherman love em, lost one but have always been easily recognized as the guy in the green Swanndri, hard wearing great all-rounder even as a bed!
I absolutely love my Swanndri. Its warm without getting too sweaty. I call it a snuggy for real men! It stands up to puppy chewing too which is a big bonus and protects me from my horse who likes to nip.
From:Toni Ngawati-Bay of Islands
I bought my partner the red and black checkered woolen hoody, he was over the moon when I surprised him with it. He wears it every morning on his way to work, he also wears it while pig hunting, he said it was really warm .All his friends are jealous cause they want one too lol...(get your own mate) :) Thanks Team Swanndri xxxx
Brilliant quality product. Very happy with this purchase. Would have helped if the website had the length of the garment.
Reply: Thanks for your feedback Carolyn. We will consider adding the length measurement to our size guide. In the meantime, everyone is welcome to contact the customer service team with any questions on 0800 652 558
Extremely nice to wear out on the boat in some rather sloppy winter conditions. Managed to keep me warm the entire time didn't get soaked clothes with the spray from the chop which I am really pleased with. Product is amazing and worth every cent
Bought this for my teenage son. He surfs throughout the winter - great for those freezing cold mornings on the beach. He loves it and a couple of his mates have since got into them too.
I've had my bushshirt now since 1993 and still looks as good as the day I bought it. My sons and I have shared the top over the years. Just got it out again for this winter! You surely have a winner!! I think when I got it price was $112.00!
I am loving my new Swani Bushshirt. I am from Minnesota, USA yet lived on the Great Barrier Island for a year during 1978 - 79 and had a Swani then. Wore it all the time. My Swani went for a walk a few years ago and I have missed it. These coats are made for our Minnesota spring and fall weather with the dense wool to keep me warm and dry.
I sent this to Germany for my sons birthday, needless to say he is thrilled with it. All of my children and grandchild are now kitted out with Swanndri and cannot sing their praises enough. Keep it up Swanndri you do a great job in product and staff.
The Iconic NZ bushshirt, that won't disappoint. Warm, dry and tough. A couple of hand pockets would be a good new feature !!
I live in Wisconsin in the US. The shirt is warm and durable, high quality stitching and excellent warmth from the wool. I have put it through some paces and am very pleased.
This is brilliant. I've always wanted one like this since I went to school in the mountains in 1979. Yes I'm giving away my age. I stay active and enjoy cross country skiing. I plan to give this a real workout. I like the extra long fit, it keeps me warm where it needs to on the lower back. Congratulations, keep it up. If it had a lining it would be 5 stars from me, but I will be wearing plenty under it anyway in the snow when I'm hut hopping.
From:Peter Roger Mellsop
I like the green colour. I think that it is not windproof but the good thing about wool is that it breathes so you can't get too hot or too cold when you're wearing it. It may need a belt around the waist to help keep the warmth in but this can be overcome by using a simple belt around the waist. I enjoy the clothing its great.
Very well produced item. Stitching is good. The fit is perfect to allow some layers underneath. Very warm on cold days. I forgot my snowboard coat and wore it on the mountain for two days in all conditions and it performed better than expected. I highly recommend it. The style is unique and since I am in New York State there are not many people with them and people always ask about it.
Having owned own for over 30 years and used it for stalking and general shooting, it has been THE best jacket I've owned. No rustle or noise it keeps me warm and dry in the dampest weather that the UK can throw at me. I am returning to New Zealand next week (13/2/15) and will certainly be buying another - although there are many years left in the current one!
Very warm yet very breathable, room for extra layers, the perfect outdoor wear for any adventurer of the outdoors.
Thanks for the very prompt delivery of the bushshirt - very pleased with it
Dayum, what a great piece of kit. The wool's more stout than I'd expected it to be. Always wanted one of these. I own a dark green Swanni vest. That's served me x-tremely well. This bush shirt's a lifetime piece. Something I'm super grateful to have scored. Will see LOTS of use. Went ahead and got a Ranger Shirt a few days ago while they were on sale over the holidays. Nothing compares to wool in keeping me warm & comfortable. Buy with complete confidence. == You'll know zero regrets.
I have bought several Swanndri's for my family as they are really warm and comfortable and great for cold climates. I have only high praise for the team at Swanndri as they are really helpful and so very efficient. Thank you so very much Team.
I bought this for my son - he was delighted. Excellent quality and nice generous sizing.
Without a doubt one of the best constructed, most versatile pieces of outdoor clothing one could own! Perfect 3 season clothing. Cannot say enough good things about it. Own one and you will agree.
As per forever, the Swanndri bushshirt continues to be one of the most durable, warm, top quality items of clothing you can purchase. Legendary
I think its really good, nice and warm and windpoof, perfect for on the side of the rugby field or being outdoors at night or in the cold seasons
Picked it up on sale so got it for an absolute bargin, Great out on the hills, stops the wind getting through, and the lace up neck is great! Got caught out in a light shower and stayed dry. I seem to rip most of my clothing on the wire when im out fencing, but so far so good with this bush shirt!
Can't beat the original. Awesome product only problem for swanndri is they take so long to wear out!
Awesome product. Tough as nails. Top quality; Just wish it was NZ made!
These are great, i only brought to replace my one that went "missing" didn't hesitate to get a new one. Maybe an extra button on the sleeve to get it a bit tighter, only an issue if you tall with skinny arms like me, but not a major issue really!
Brought these as wool keeps you warm and nostalgic memories as my husband wanted another one. He has a zip up that He uses when we go out, brought when still made in NZ. The material on this one is much lighter in weight.
I bout a Swanndri Men's Original Wool Bushshirt with lace-up front for my partner and he loves it. It fits well. He wears it while he's cold and warm. He calls it his magic jersey. I love it.
Sooo comfy I can't wear it enough! Keeps you very warm and pretty dry when drizzling, I wear it everywhere from hunting up the mountains to watching the boy play rugby!
Great quality. Makes me feel like one of the kiwi boys.
The Classic kiwi icon!! I use my bushshirt for hunting, fishing and watching the rugby on the sidelines. It's always keeping me warm & comfortable, a purchase you won't regret. I've now purchased the "Claymore" jacket for those slightly dressier occasions great addition to the wardrobe. High quality great value.
Fantastic handwearing bushshirt, great for hunting. Purchased as a gift for my son as he keeps "borrowing his father's". Purchased online which was no hassle with fast delivery.
Brilliant, have always wanted to own one and when the offer on a chance to get one on the Canterbury Cup came up all fingers were crossed #13 is my wife's lucky number so when that horse came in, you beauty going to work in well for those farm jobs. Great promotion can't wait to see what the next one will be.
This shirt is very well made. good quality. I will need to make some adjustments to the fit. My problem entirely as I've short arms. Delivery of my order was quick. Very happy with the service & quality of products.
Great Bushshirt-Cant wait to use this in Winter time. I know its a jacket that will last a long time. Thanks Swanndri
Its ace. should have bought one years ago.
I got this Bushshirt for Steve. It arrived in Melbourne 2 days later. Unbelievable service, I was able to change the colour with a quick call to Angela and it was sorted straight away. We took it camping on the weekend in Victoria and I wore it! So bloody warm!
I Love my bush shirt! My initial order was far to big, but they exchanged it without any hassle at all. Fell asleep on the floor at home, with my dogs lying on my, after my first day out in it. Well impressed. It's warm and comfortable and stands up against tropical Taranaki weather. My bush shirt is like a warm home wherever I go. Don't bother humming and harring, just add it to your cart and checkout with one of these bad boys!
Very well made piece of kit. It fits well though a tad baggy around the shoulders (part of the design I'm assuming). The shirt is extremely warm and affords a very good level of mobility. Thanks!
Amazing product! Super fast shipping all the way to the states. Worth every penny, this coat will last a lifetime!
I never knew anything about swanndris until i met my partner. Through wind and rain it still remains a great protector. I bought him one and kind of regret it. He never takes it off! lol
This is the best wool I have ever owned. It's perfect for hunting over here in Idaho!
My swanndri has just arrived. Haven't had one of these in a few years now but the quality is still great. Really happy with the product and the great service
Even though I ordered a size too large... I'm over the moon with this purchase. The olive bush shirt is a classic kiwi look that I've been wanting for a while and now I have it I can't imagine my winter days with out it
I bought this for my son. He is stoked as has always wanted one. Still owns other swanni jackets that were hand me downs...they last so long, can't wait for them to wear out to buy a new one!! Service was great too. Ordered online for delivery to Aussie. It arrived within a week. Fantastic.
Just like all the others I've had, warm,waterproof in light rain and quiet in the bush . Hope the keep making them.
This product is just amazing not a jacket like it ! I recommend this to everyone ! Just would be great if the material stoping the wool from touching your skin would be awesome if it went all through the sleeves as well
Amazing quality, super warm and just nice to wear
We had our first cold spell on the weekend for the year so i finally got to try out my jacket. What a great jacket. It was really warm. Can't wait to get down to the farm in winter and try it out when it gets really cold! Also would love it if it came in camo.
I have been using this product for 25 years and am delighted that the quality remains unchanged.
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
Very fast service, I'm very pleased with the bush shirt, my husband is going to love it!! Thank you Swanndri!
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.
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
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 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.
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...
Bought 1960 still in great condition one small tear deerstalking Farming could not have done without my Swanni
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
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.
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 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.
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...
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.
only coat i can rely on to keep me warm when im working outside in the winter..
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Nothing keeps you warmer on a freezing southern winter morning, milking the cows, than a woolly swanny!
Still the same, good quality swanni, but was disappointed that the lining wasn't sewn in like my 25yr old one was.
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.
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!
A Original Kiwi icon still among the Best!
Had this since a teenager and used it on the farm everyday. Best thing to have when you are outdoors.
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!!!
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!
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.
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.
I use it often over winter in the cold as well as the wet
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
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.
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.
Absolutley fantastic garment, a real woodsmans shirt, always wear it camping out in the woods
Super comfy and looks rad. Just wish it also came in a double thick version for those extra cold winter days.
A great bush shirt for all conditions. The only downfall is after paying a hefty sum for a bush shirt is seeing the made in China tag....
