Coming Soon – M1951-inspired Wool Shirt From Lester River Bushcraft

So new it hasn’t been named yet, LRB’s take on the classic M1951 wool shirt features snap closure allowing this to be used as a jacket, a bunch of pockets both zippered and open, and some with hidden D-rings.

    When I was issued a wool shirt at Campbell in 1986 I was like, “What!”

    I couldn’t imagine the modern US military issuing Korean War vintage uniform shirts. I learned better but the “field shirt” as we used to call it was surprisingly warm and effective for cold and wet Kentucky/Tennessee winters.

    Weighing their weight against their effectiveness they were a pretty good low tech solution.

    The wool shirt is still one of my go-to cold weather layers. I have several. Wore one in Iraq under my uniform (it was completely invisible) and the ones I have were issued about 25 years ago and are still going strong.

    I would like to go ahead and file in advance the obligatory whiny complaint about the outrageous cost of a wool shirt made in the USA!!!!!

    The originals were a great piece of gear – in both Europe and Alaska. Still have one. I can easily see buying this.
