My Review:

Wolverine may have had the fisherman in mind with the Guide Convertible shirt, however it suites the needs of the archer and Bowhunter very well. On cool mornings we have long sleeves that can be rolled up and fastened in place as the day warms, and the large cargo pockets are perfect for carrying calls and incidentals that we want close at hand, like pocket binoculars.

There is plenty of room for movement, whether drawing a bow or casting a line, without the shirt feeling cumbersome and bulky. Rolled down the sleeves are loose fitting but not in the way of bow strings, and when rolled up they are neatly and loosely secured out of harms way, and they stay put.

 It is relatively water resistant in light drizzle, and the fine mesh fabric is not loud when moving thru brush and tangles. Mosquitoes could not bite thru the fabric, which was a deciding factor on many of the days I wore the Guide Convertible shirt this summer.

 Fall is nearly here and I know that during the warm early Elk season I will be wearing this shirt on many of my days in the bush. It has the features that I think will make it a very good hunting shirt this year.
