The dense weave of its long-life canvas fabric keeps you protected from thorns and other hazards, and it won't tear or snag on rugged hikes. Generous pockets keep travel essentials close, and the cotton surface only gets softer and more comfortable with each washing. With shoulder epaulets for bag or camera straps.

              Comments about Explorer's Rugged Canvas Shirt:

              Normally I wear a large, but based on the other reviews I ordered a medium- the shirt fits perfectly! I'm 5"8" 190lbs. When I raise my arms over my head the shirt is more than long enough that it stays tucked in and it's just roomy enough without feeling baggy. The material is a very thick fine woven cotton canvas that feels like it should last a decade- definitely stiff and scratchy brand new but it's 100% cotton so it should soften with each washing. I've never seen a shirt made out of cotton this thick- definitely has a very rugged outback look and feel to it.

              The shirt is made by Kakadu Traders Australia and National Geographic's sale price of 59.99 is the best price I've found- just wish they carried the other colors- I would order them all at this price. Kakadu refers to it as an 'Overshirt' and all the photos I've seen show it being worn over other shirts/sweaters- which may help explain why it's oversized.

              Far to expensive as Fedex wil sent you and additional invoice for the shipment to Belgium. You will not be warned by NG while ordering, and they don't care.
              I think L in the states is XL in Europe, so it's to big for me.
              The color is also a bit diffrent.

                Comments about Explorer's Rugged Canvas Shirt:

                This is probably the best, most rugged, and stylishly utilitarian article of clothing I have ever purchased. The workmanship and attention to detail is evident in every stitch.The ONLY drawback is the sizing. I am 6'5" and weigh 210 lbs. You'd think I'd get an XL, because that's what I usually get. But no, I practically SWIM in the large. I had to have it tailored to make it fit better because a medium would have been too short. If you're quite stout, the shirt will be fine. If you're athletic or slim, consider tailoring it. It's still worth it, but I'd really like to see slimmer cuts. It's just too baggy to be practical in the field.

                The Oregon-based Pendleton Mill introduced their first patterned wool men's shirts more than 80 years ago—before that the options were grey, grey, and more grey. Unsurprisingly, the new color and pattern options were welcomed, and they've been in style ever since. Made with Umatilla wool, our washable wool trail shirt has a rugged, cabin-casual look that works just as well on hiking trails as it does sightseeing in town. Umatilla woolen is a versatile medium weight 100% virgin wool fabric that takes its name from Oregon’s Umatilla County, where Pendleton buys raw stock from local ranchers. Features ultra suede elbow patches, an open collar with a lined band, a buttoned chest pocket with a pencil slot, and a round tail.

                Polar fleece, titanium, and GPS have forever changed the face of exploration. Today an explorer can make a phone call from the top of Mount Everest and geo-locate himself in the thickest rain forest or the widest desert. Yet despite these advances, few modern adventures get close to the charm and romance of dispatches from the Society's earliest explorers. In those bygone days, the pages of National Geographic were as close as most people could get to high adventure and faraway lands—and here's a chance to recapture them.

                Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen, best known for his pioneering visit to the South Pole and sailing through the Northwest Passage, disappeared in 1928 when his plane went down during a mission to rescue Italian explorer Umberto Nobile. Only a wing float and a fuel tank from his aircraft, the French twin-engine flying boat Latham 47, were recovered.

                The best travel clothes are ones that will stand up to anything you can throw at them. Our rugged cotton twill shirt is great for long days on the road, working around the house, or even casual offices. It’s enzyme-washed for a soft, broken-in feeling, but it’s tough enough to take on miles of travel.

                In the northwestern Indian state of Rajasthan, houses are often decorated with mandana paintings. This traditional folk art is often painted on the earthen walls, or on ground in front of one’s home, using red sand, ocher, and chalk powder, and the patterns often allude to Hindu gods, offering prayers for rain, a good harvest, good health, and more.

                Patola is a form of double-ikat weaving, meaning that both the warp (vertical) and weft (horizontal) threads are dyed before being strung on the loom. This intricate process results in a bold pattern, often on a red background. It is practiced in many parts of Southeast Asia but is a particular specialty of Gujarat, where silk patola saris are often part of a bride’s trousseau.
