Shirts and pants

Post by Pauld » Fri Jan 09, 2015 9:29 am

I think We've covered boots enough and Turkey vest are truly a "What fits you best" think so let us turn to good quality spring turkey wear atire. It seems that the quality of light weight clothing has gone down to the bottom of the barrel the last few years. Teck-Lite is off the market and I'm down to a pair of pants with the crotch torn in them and 1 tek lite shirt. Bought some Ol Tom last year, shirt and pants. 3 buttons fell off the shirt within 6 times of me wearing it. The pants seem pretty good but same issue with the button and when it's wet they pick up moisture like a towel. Think This year I'm going to pick up a UA button up and pants. Pricey but I own nothiing UA that I don't love. I prefer a button up shirt over a T because I like the loose fit, and the ability to unbutton a center button and tuck my trumpet in when I'm moving.

What size you wear? I might have some extra Trek lite lying around if you wear bigger sizes.

Trek lite is the stuff for me. I bought in heavy when it was available.

Usually a medium or large in pants and an XL or 2XL in shirts.



I loved the tek lite, except the inseam was short. At 6'4" that's a normal problem though

Is there any other kind of shirt to wear? :D

I actually do wear that shirt a lot in my turkey hunting (got 3 or 4). I like quiet material. Cotton knit, fleece, wool, etc. I have a couple of long sleeve cotton knit shirts I wear a lot. Pants I have are fleece. I pretty much stick with a couple of shirts/pants most of the season as I have them sprayed down with the tick control stuff.

I prefer the Trek Lite also. I have two decent sets left now. Wish I would have bought more. Early season the regular weight cotton stuff works but when it warms up, it is Treklite time. I picked up an Old Tom shirt, not very comfortable so far. I also picked up an Under Armor long sleeve T, it is light weight and comfortable but I prefer pockets and buttons. It almost seems when I find something I like (certain loads, camo, other types of gear or callers) they quit making it.

I buy mostly from Mossy Oak online, and had good luck with the products.

One thing I wish I could find or bought another when I had the chance back then - a heavy chamois button shirt in the MO Forest Floor pattern. Heavy enough to wear as an additional layer and a great pattern for early spring and fall.

Love to find another button shirt in the same weight chamois.

When I find something I haven't tried. I try it. Normally it gets returned. I don't know why most clothing manufacturers think the crotch of a pair of britches needs to reach your knees. :roll: I just want interceptor cotton, mossy oak apparel treklite and diffusion 3D back. . . . :oops:
