Swazi Bushman's Tee with Pocket - Olive


Brand: Swazi
Weight: 396 g         10 reviews
The Swazi Bushman's Tee was one of the very first garments ever produced by Swazi, and is still as popular as ever years later. It features a useful chest pocket with a secure zip closure. Tough and warm - the Bushman's Tee will become a staple of your outdoor gear.

Despite its unassuming design, the versatility and durability of this Swazi original is, in the words of the New Zealanders themselves, "absolutely awesome." The sleeves are cut to bellow, allowing air to circulate and keep you cool on warm days. On cold days, the high quality polar fleece makes a superb first layer, or an ideal piece of nightwear for those frosty nights spent in your sleeping bag.

"If you don't own a Bushman's Tee and your mate does, steal it from him - mates are much easier to replace!" - Swazi

  Great T-shirt. Warm and comfortable. I chose large as I don’t like tee shirts too tight, and for me the size is spot on. I can still get a long sleeve base layer underneath, but I usually wear this on its own.

  Received very quickly. Great product and the price is cheapest on Internet. Wish I'd known about this site earlier!

  A very comfortable item to wear, enough room to have a long sleeve shirt underneath or as a mid layer. One thing I like is the ample ventilation around the neck as well as on the arms. The pocket on the chest is great to put your odds and sods in. Again, typical of Swazi, is simple and functional and I believe, well thought of. This item will be getting a lot of wear. Thanks once again to Woodlore for your prompt and reliable service.

  Comfortable and durable. Had to get rid of all the labels and found the initial cost high. Will see if it lasts.

  Put it on and it felt great. Was then informed by my girls that it looks daft...will need to order another one as they are currently both fighting over it. Simple and practical, this will do what it says on the tin. My preference would be to use it as a mid layer with a merino layer underneath. Nice bit of kit.

  This is an excellent piece of base/mid layer kit. The shirt is very well made and of thoughtful and intelligent design. Just the feel of the shirt on opening gave me confidence that this was going to be a good product. The fit corresponds generously to the guidelines on the site and I am pleased that this gives me the option of over-shirting a long sleeve base or using as a basic base layer. The collar is relatively wide for a t-shirt but the addition of a ruff or scarf works well if using under an anorak while allowing for good venting if needed. The sleeves are also of a wider cut allowing for good ventilation. The shirt is also very comfortable as a loungewear item and has become the first thing I slip on of a morning. The garment washes well and the care instructions are good and simple. As to improvements....not much, maybe some thought about pocket location...a side pocket would be good or hoodie type hand warmer central pocket. Other than that, it's pretty much perfect. The service from Woodlore was easy, packaged well and quickly delivered.

  A t shirt with a pocket at last. Just right for spring days and early summer mornings. Comfy and generous fitting. Fantastic thanks.

  Warm and practical, especially for summer mornings and easy to thrown on getting out of the sea after a swim as I have used it so far. Fleece thicker than I expected, an excellent quality garment that is very versatile. I probably wouldnt wear it as part of a layering system as the sleeves are bellowed which is great for ventilation but not for fitting under other garments. Fast delivery again.
