Duluth dares you to wear them out and guarantees to replace them, no questions asked, if they fray, rip, or tear.

Duluth Men’s and Women’s Crosscut Flannel Shirt (MSRP $54.50)

Duluth Trading Companies Men’s and Women’s Crosscut Flannel Shirt are a pre-washed mixture of 40 percent moisture-wicking polyester to keep you cool and dry with 60 percent cotton fabric that feels as soft as a flannel shirt should. Both the men’s and women’s crosscut flannel shirts have a modern bi-swing back and underarm gussets that help provide a remarkable freedom of movement. The convertible sleeves roll up and button, while the fit is slightly closer to the body to manage moisture. The Women’s Crosscut Flannel shirt includes a Shirttail Shammy—Duluth’s exclusive microfiber cleaning cloth.

Old Faithful is the perfect name for this comfortable, good-looking sweater; it’s no wonder that this is one of Mountain Khaki’s best sellers!

    • TamiandAndy

      Thank you we hope you found it informative!

  • aprospectivecustomer

    This article sucks. Where are the photos of the products mentioned? Terrible.

    • Andy and Tami

      Sorry you feel that way, please let the editors know we submitted photos with the article, However, all of the products are easy to see thru the links provided.

  • Brandon Butler

    I have three pair of Mountain Khaki pants that have been put to the test for about 8 years now, and they are still in awesome shape. Haven’t picked up any Duluth Trading yet, but look forward to giving them a try. Great article.

    • TamiandAndy

      We love MK Brandon, your right they make some great clothing! You will love Duluth as well sper tough and super comfortable.

  • Joel Lucks

    The job of an outdoor writer is not an easy one. Everyone, for certain, has an opinion and a different experience with gear and product, and you can’t please everyone. We distinguish ourselves as writers with our objectivity not our negativity. Just to say something “sucks” for the sake of saying something is mean-spirited and serves no purpose. Ultimately, the editors have to make final posting decisions to post a picture or not, or to cut an article or not. If you want more photos, go to the manufacturers websites.

    • TamiandAndy

      Thank you Joel you hit the nail on the head, thank you for your post.

  • Kim B

    The wine carafe looks perfect for skiing….guess that’s the wino in me….good guide!

    • TamiandAndy

      I love mine, its always ready to go into the outdoors with Tami and I.

  • hal herring

    I’m interested in the Firehose pants for arborist and timber work- never heard of them (and yes, to the comment above, it would have been good to have a photo of the pants, but one click took me to one). I like this part of the Hub for introducing me to new stuff. One suggestion- I’m searching the world over for a manufacturer of top-notch wool plants- LL Bean has some good ones, Filson, does too, but I know there are more out there– mid weight, for early elk season, or even lighter than that, with gusseted crotch for climbing over deadfall, a little better quality than the military surplus stuff out there – just somewhere there must be an almost ideal wool pants- but I can’t find them. I’ll keep checking back here- thanks for putting this guide online!

    • TamiandAndy

      You will love the Firehose pants, they are very comfortable and they will stand up to just about anything you can throw at them.

  • Allison White

    I love Andy and Tami’s guide’s and their articles, I have purchased several items over the last year that they recommended, and they were as good or better than they described them. I know the Duluth clothing is absolutely perfect for being outside, I just purchased one of the flannel shirts they suggested, and I am ordering another for my husband. I am going to check out the Mountain Khaki clothing as well, I still have a few gifts I need to get before the Holiday’s. I do like it when you have more pictures, like the person above said, but the links were easy to follow and worked out fine. You two are wonderful, so wholesome and fun, my husband and I love your stories, keep up the good work! Tami, I want to see more stories on fun things to do with your kids in the outdoors! I loved the spring break article.

    • TamiandAndy

      Allison, Thank you so much for your kind words, we love what we do and we hope you find these reviews and guides informative. Tami has some good articles coming out so stay tuned.
