The folks over at Poncho Outdoors were kind enough to send along a few of their new shirts for me to review. Their shirts are designed specifically for men in the outdoors, for use while hunting and fishing.
After some serious use, I really only have good things to say about their shirts. And I’m confident that if you try one of these on, you’ll understand why I say this is my new go-to shirt for everything.
Poncho designed their shirts by outdoorsmen to take on the most extreme conditions, which means it is over-engineered to keep you cool, dry, and comfortable all day long. It’s also by far the best looking and fitting performance shirt I have in my closet.
Poncho went with a comfortable, breathable performance fabric that stretches with you as you’re moving. The fabric is also available in a wide number of colors, which I love. There’s something in Poncho’s collection for any style.
- Comfortable, breathable performance fabric
- Wicks sweat and dries crazy fast
- Functional pockets that don’t bulk up the shirt
- Built-in lens cloth and hidden slit to hold your shades
- Regular and slim fit options that both look great
They’ve got a few different styles:
Original – button down with collar.
Western – same as Orig but with pearl snaps (my personal favorite).
Flannel – super comfortable medium weight fabric, keeping the same fit and features as the others.
Performance – their new lightweight buttery soft hoodie/crew. I haven’t tried this one yet but it’ll be the first thing I put on once the weather warms up.
One of the best things about them is that they look so darn good for any occasion. A night out to dinner, taking the dog for a walk, grilling in the backyard, you name it.
It’s a rare combination of a shirt that performs better than you need it to but is so comfortable (and good looking) that you’ll want to wear it for almost everything.
