I have lived in this bushshirt every single day from 4th January to approx 2nd April. From then onwards I have still worn it most days, just a bit less so because of hotter conditions. For this period of time (up until mid-May) I have been living in very remote mountainous locations. Working on the land with goats, construction work, collecting firewood, walking through brambles (etc.), this shirt has proved invaluable. Being very cold in Jan and Feb (I was in an ancient farmhouse with holes in the walls/roof and without central heating or hot water except by wood fire), the bagginess of this top was perfect as it allowed me to comfortably wear 3 (or 4 - maybe 5 if necessary) layers underneath it to keep me warm. The top is also somewhat water-resistant, so very good when working outside all the time, for protection against showers, just in general when washing dishes etc. The wool is strong I felt fairly confident carrying large bundles of rough firewood/rough clay tiles etc in this shirt without being too concerned that it might snag/tear, which it never did. Only when it was heavy rain, or really cold/windy did I swap this for my waterproof winter coat, but in general the bushshirt was sufficient as an outer layer (bearing in mind that I was wearing several layers underneath obviously though it always totally depends on the climate/conditions you are in!). Definitely worth the price, thoroughly recommended for outdoor life. Also I made a mess of the order/delivery details, but Woodlore responded immediately and resolved the issue straight away.
