Lester River Bushcraft wool made in USA.  The original and premier wool shirt for the modern outdoorsman since 2009.

 

Watch Facebook and Instagram for notification of ready to ship green or gray Boreal shirt availability.

 

The Boreal Shirt is a full coverage Wool shelter for your woodland pursuits.

With a generous fit and rugged construction, this shirt might never return to your closet. It's cut long enough to shield your hips, and wide to stuff with layers.

The wrists cinch shut with stainless steel snaps, while the hood and neck gauntlet close down with draw cords. There's a bungee at the hem to stop drafts and let you adjust the length. The front pocket offers shelter for your hands, and multiple storage pouches for gathering. There's even a zippered pocket for your valuables and two lashing rings for keys or tools.

Wool is naturally flame retardant, antibacterial, and resistant to dirt and oils. It holds body heat when it's wet, and wicks moisture away from your body to regulate your personal environment.   You'll spend less time worrying about staying clean, working with fire in camp, or changing your layers when the temperatures shift. What's more, we've pre-shrunk the fabric so you can care for it at home.

Handmade with pride in Duluth, Minnesota.

Durable, Rugged, Outdoor Jacket Built to Last a Lifetime

    Best Purchase in last 20years!

    Posted by D James on Jan 14th 2021

    Bought 2 of these for my father and myself a couple of years ago. It was the best decision we've made in a long time! You literally can go out in almost any weather with as little as a t-shirt underneath as long you are sporting the Lester River Boreal shirt! Wearing it everyday during the late Fall and all though our Winter. The pocket and inner zipper pocket are nice for lights, phone, keys, etc....Hood is perfect too. Completely recommend. A+

    Boreal hoody

    Posted by Bruce Lee on Dec 26th 2020

    I've owned one for around 6 or 7 years, and wear it while sitting quietly in the north woods of Minnesota on cold November mornings. It has made sitting in the woods much more comfortable versus the synthetic layers I use to use exclusively, and I've been able to eliminate 2 layers. Awesome outerwear for the north woods, and eventually I will order one for Momma!

    Green Boreal Anorak

    Posted by Randall on Nov 30th 2020

    Top notch. Love it! Bought a similar item from a competitor. Both are of excellent quality and construction. Lester River fits better, more features and storage. I’m 5’11, 220lbs. Stocky build. Large could “accidentally” shrink just a bit and still fit great. The similar item, essentially fits like spandex after an “accidental” episode.

    We love them!!

    Posted by Amy L Winkel on Nov 15th 2020

    I bought these for me and my spouse 2 years ago. We love these!!! They are very comfortable and just oversized enough to wear a long john top and flannel underneath. We have worn them out hunting and while working outside for the last 2 winters here in WI. The front pocket is great for carrying deer calls, hand warmers, gloves, a snack or whatever. Cant imagine how we managed before we got these shirts. We do a lot of outdoor stuff hunting, hiking snowshoeing cross-country skiing etc., so we wear them all winter long. These shirts are very well made.

    Exceeds Expectations

    Posted by Terence Parkinson on Feb 14th 2020

    Hey everyone
    Just wanted to post a quick review. I received my boreal shirt about a week ago and all I can say is I love it. I have a $700 Fjallraven jacket that the boreal shirt has outperforming in Ontario winter conditions. Had it out in -10c yesterday for the whole day and was super comfortable with a sweater underneath.
    The fit is spot on. I had to call in a couple times to confirm sizing as I was worried about the fit (I am one of those annoying customers) - the recommendation based off our conversation turned out to be perfect.
    Absolutely love this thing; practical and it also looks great in my opinion. If you are debating getting one; just do it. My new favourite Garment. Well worth the money. Hope this helps anyone unsure. Thanks!

    Boreal Shirt Anorak

    Posted by Brad M on Jan 26th 2020

    What a great transaction from start to finish. Ordered the Boreal shirt anorak on Jan 11, 2020 and received it Jan 25, 2020. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is evident throughout the garment. Impeccable seams, no loose threads. Im 5’10” 235 and ordered the Large. I usually nave trouble with sleeves being annoyingly shirt. Not so with this anorak. I will be refining the layering scheme but so far I have work a Poartec base layer and just the anorak in 28* and was comfortable. It fits perfectly as insulation under Fajallraren Anorak #8. I highly recommend the Lester River Boreal shirt anorak.
