There are few pieces of clothing more iconic in Filson’s catalog than their Alaskan Guide Shirt, a mid-weight, long-sleeved flannel garment that’s killer for outdoor use. For 2016, they’re giving fans of the garment an alternate version in the form of the Filson Lightweight Alaskan Guide Shirt, which brings a lighter fabric that should be even more suitable for the coming spring and summer seasons.
As with the mid-weight version, this lightweight cotton fabric is highly breathable, ensuring it will keep you cool while chopping logs, hunting game, or preparing dinner around camp during the warmer months of the year. It’s also pre-washed, so it feels broken in and extremely comfortable right off the shelf, with a vintage appearance that ensures you don’t just feel cool – you look pretty cool, too.
The Filson Lightweight Alaskan Guide Shirt has a pleated back to enable better mobility through the shoulders, ensuring you won’t need to constantly adjust your shirt while getting stuff done in the outdoors. That means, you can flex, stretch, and swing wildly without any hindrance in movement, freeing you to do whatever you need to while camping, hiking, or fishing in the wild. There’s also a hanging loop right at the top of the pleat for conveniently hanging your hunting license.
Features include a relaxed fit, a button-front closure, two expandable chest pockets with button flaps, and adjustable button-closure cuffs. It comes in three colors.
Available now, the Filson Lightweight Alaskan Guide Shirt is priced at $115.
