View Full Version : swanndri ranger shirt
being the proud owner of a hooded bush shirt i was wondering if there is much difference between that and the ranger , ie length wise etc and cooler for summer months, any comments please
after 55 views surely someone can answer me :?:
The ranger shirts are lighter and shorter than the hooded types. The ranger style is more of a proper shirt than an overshirt.
Hope this helps.
Yes... its like a thick wool normal sized shirt with no hood.
thanks, i know what they look like , just wondered about differences in size n lenght etc
Can't compare the two, and only have this winter's experience of the Ranger shirt but I've mostly worn the Ranger under my coat. I presume as things get a bit warmer I'll do without the coat. So far I reckon it's a replacement for an ordinary fleece.
They are very different items
the hooded bush shirt is 3/4 length with a hood, drawstring neck and has a lineing
the Ranger shirt is of a shirt format (1/2 length) with a scooped tail (its longer at the back to prevent it riding up out of your trousers and exposing your kidneys) it is of a thinner construction and has no lining, no Hood and a 3/4 leanth brass zipper at the front
Worn mine all winter in the woodlands, haven't needed to wear coat this season.
That are wonderful, they are light bloomin warm and tough. I actually even wear it indoors.........we have a cold house!
Also the bush shirts are made of felted wool rather than woven wool like the ranger shirts.
There is also a version of the bush shirt available without the hood (still has the drawsring collar). And there used to be a version of this shirt that is the same length as the Ranger shirt too, I have one that I picked up on ebay almost 2 years ago brand new for just under £40 :-D
But I have not seen them available anywhere else since. Which is a shame as this length can be worn under a shell layer (pefect under a single layer ventile smock).
Fit wise, the sizes are very close. The sleaves on the bush shirts are wider than the Ranger.
Hope that helps
