Wool is an incredibly versatile material. Despite the common misconception that it's rough, itchy, and stifling, high-quality wool apparel is extremely durable, protective, and moisture-resistant. This is why wool-based fabrics have seen a resurgence in popularity for outdoor use in harsh conditions.
Prometheus Design Werx has released a new 3-season wool outdoor shirt under its Danger Ranger Bear brand. The shirt is called the Danger Ranger Bear Woodsman, and is inspired by the classic appearance of vintage outdoor apparel. The company says, “The DRB Woodsman Shirt is equally at home in the wilderness, at the work shop, or inside the cabin of your favorite overlanding rig. This is a modern classic we think Teddy Roosevelt would have approved of.”
The new DRB Woodsman shirts are made in small batches in the USA, from a Melton blend of 85% wool and 15% nylon. The shirt uses triple-needle stitching and bar tacks, double-reinforced elbows, and tough PDW slotted buttons for maximum durability.
Long sleeves, dual chest pockets, and a camp-style collar provide a simple and classic appearance. The chest pockets are buttoned and zippered for secure closure, and are scaled to fit most modern smartphones. The left pocket also includes a pen/pencil slot.
The Woodsman shirt is available in two standard colors: navy blue and owl grey. There's also a Special-Edition model in genuine Woolrich Heritage red-black plaid wool. All DRB Woodsman shirts are designed for regular fit, and range in size from small to XXL. The standard shirts are available at an MSRP of $159, and the Special-Edition is available at an MSRP of $169.
