áby Venator2 My go-to upland hunting shirt
This purchase is the second of this shirt. The first is a size large that I wear outside the belt over light fleece and other layers. This shirt is a medium that I wear at less cold times over a T-shirt and tucked in. It is true to size (shoulders and arm length) but also cut full for layering and mobility. I've found this shirt sheds dirt well, and light rain/mist for an hour or so. I first bought the shirt to be seen by my companion upland hunters in early season when leaves still block views as it is MUCH more visible than shirts with only blaze patches under those conditions. But I now like the fabric breathability, color fastness and fit so much I've stopped wearing my other upland shirts. When I bought my fist shirt I also bought one for my son, and it has become his upland hunting go-to shirt shirt as well.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Vermontgrousenut well-made, comfortable hunting shirt
The fabric on this shirt feels as soft as cotton but is fairly hardy for brush. It is a mid-weight shirt and will most likely work as well on warmer days as colder.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Hammerhead2012 Nice shirts
Great fit but most importantly they are rugged shirts but not super heavy or binding and hold up to briars and thorns very well. I've had other high end shirts that have essentially been ripped to shreds after a few hunts. Want rugged and tough with high quality these are it!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Aspinifera Solid and Bright
I just purchased this shirt a few weeks ago and i wore it on one upland hunt. It performed quite well i would say. It did a good job fending off thorns from berry bushes etc in Northern Vermont. It also added some color to my gear which should help to keep me visible to other hunters.
The shirt is quite heavy in both weight and weave; although, it does seem to breath well. I recently washed this item. It did pill very slightly, but the color stayed as bright as when it first arrived. I expect this shirt to serve me well for years of hunting in tough terrain.
Perhaps a touch pricey for being made overseas, but generally i like it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Dublo7 Safety in Color
As a motorcycle rider, I know that my safety is enhanced by my visibility. Although this shirt is primarily a hunting shirt, I love its utility as a riding shirt. It is hard NOT to notice me on the road when I am wearing this shirt. Sizing is ample enough to wear additional layers underneath if more warmth is needed. However long it lasts, I will gladly purchase another.

Rated 5 out of 5áby TexanBeaner Blaze This!
Absolutely perfect. Great blaze, nice fabric and construction. I usually wrestle between "L" and "XL" and found the "L" gives me plenty of room for a technical base and mid layer with no stress at the shoulder or chest.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MoosoneeHunter Great Shirt, thick and bright
This shirt is great for hunting and being in the bush during moose season. You will not be mistaken as an animal. Sturdy construction and good fit for wearing over a sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LaxdadConn Not just for hunting
Got for visibility backpacking during hunting season. Great because it is NOT cotton, and hence insulates better even when wet, and is lighter than my comparable wool shirts. Use now cross-country skiing for same reason.
Great looking ... I'd wear to town but for the extreme color.
I just wish this shirt came in this fabric in additional colors, for when I hike and ski outside the hunting season.
