    Default Worsterlon shirt information?

    Is there anybody out there who knows the scoop on Worsterlon? I got a couple shirts made out of this stuff many years ago made by Winchester and I need to replace it. It's incredible, wore like cast iron, dried nearly instantly if it got wet in the field, looked like a fine woolrich or something, warm as all get out, and all my searching has led to a dead end at Cabelas... they apparently made some of these for a while, but now theyve apparently discontinued it... (bummer for them, its the only thing I could possibly think of that would have me purchase anything from them ever again!)

    Or... do you know of any similar synthetic wool product? Thanks!

    Default whoa you scared me...

    i went and ordered two right away... sure enough, they are on sale, which i have found to be a prelude to discontinuation. (just bought a bunch of my favorite salmon spoon for the same reason)

    After reading Tony Russ' big endorsement of them in his sheep book several years ago I went looking for them with no luck. When the new models came out I ordered one and have been very pleased. I'm a big fan of thier microtech, but don't like wearing camo all the time.

    I'm a wool fan myself, but you should check out LL Bean. Try searching for the "Northweave" shirt which can be purchased in green or camo. It's a polyester shirt. Their Allagash Houndstooth Shirt also sounds like its made of synthetic. You can't beat LL Bean's satisfaction guarantee.

    Default LL Beans looks like a great option! Thanks!

    I'll be trying theirs out. The one I was most hoping to find was to replace my worsterlon camo shirt by remington, I wonder if that outfit down in Homer that makes the cool polar fleece stuff could be talked into building these?
