Men’s Kaiwaka Weathershield Bushshirt

If you’re looking for fishing shirts, hiking shirts or farmers’ shirts, you’re in the right place. Our triple layer technical fleece Weathershield Bushshirt will keep you warm and dry no matter what. It’s windproof, water-resistant, lightweight, breathable and flexible – the ultimate go-to shirt for a satisfying day in the great outdoors.

The history of the bush shirt

Invented somewhere hot and tropical in 1901, the humble bush shirt was originally a long loose-fitting cotton shirt with patch pockets. It’s closely related to the safari jacket or bush jacket, which was popular attire in Africa during British colonial years. The bush shirt has evolved steadily over the years. Fabrics and features have changed significantly, and styling is now light years ahead of the safari-style shirts of the past. Kaiwaka Clothing’s Weathershield Bushshirt is made from a technical triple-layer fabric that’s like a microfleece sandwich: a top layer of advanced microfleece is backed with a PU windproof layer, which is bonded to an internal layer of microfleece. 

A closer look at the benefits of our triple-layer fabric

Windproof and water-resistant: PU middle layer resists water and won’t let the wind through Stretchable: Four-way stretch ensures the garment moves with you Breathable: Even when it’s resisting wind and rain, the triple-layer fabric still allows internal moisture to get out Lightweight: Lighter than your average wool bush shirt

A fully-featured bush shirt that’s got your back in any weather

We’re the first to admit that our designers are sticklers for detail. That’s why this men’s bush shirt has a double-storm flap protecting the two-way zip closure; a lined weatherproof hood with a peak that preserves your peripheral vision; and a drawstring with toggles to deal with that nasty sideways rain. You’re also getting a full kit of pockets – an external chest pocket with weatherproof flap for your phone and two lined hip pockets for dog treats, snack bars, hip flasks and anything else you need for a successful day in the wild.
