  An absolute brilliant piece of kit. Hiked across Iceland and over a glacier wearing it. Kept me very warm and very dry. 100% recommend getting this for any out doors activities. Bought a size smaller than I normally wear and it suited fine.

  As a gamekeeper I spend a lot of time lurking in the great outdoors and this is a great jacket to do it in. Very comfortable and practical for working in. Slight downsides are, as mentioned in some other reviews, the cuff is fairly tight if you have chunky arms. I also would prefer the collar was not as pointy, as with a shirt, and a bit squarer, but a very personal thought. Either way a great bit of kit!

  First off, let me say that I admire Ray Mears and greatly enjoy his programs. I purchased the Ranger Extreme recently. I received my order in nine days, which is impressive as I live in the United States. The shirt is beautifully made. It fits like a glove and is quite warm. It is not as quiet as other wool garments due to the liner. It makes the sounds that a wind breaker jacket would make when you move. If you are using it for hunting, you may want to buy the other ranger shirt. I am 180 cm tall and weigh 12 stones. I ordered the medium, and it fits perfectly. I have several other Swanndri garments that have held up to decades of wear. I am sure this jacket will as well. I would definitely purchase more of them. Thus far, I have worn it in below zero weather with no complaints. I have a canvas anorak which I will wear over it in extreme conditions.

  Excellent piece of kit. Shropshire between September and August can be wet and this thing has already been out in some dreadful conditions. Surprisingly windproof too. It feels like it'll last a long time. More of a shaped fit on the shoulders than the standard Ranger shirt, there are less 'corners' if you know what I mean. Any negatives? The top button won't do up, maybe I have a really wide neck (no one has ever pointed it out but you never know!) The XL is roomy everywhere else and I'm 6'2' and 15 stone. No logo on the left pocket of the shirt I was sent. I am not fussed . Bui if you want to show off that you've got a Swannie it might be a factor.
