When working outside a tough flannel shirt is hard to beat.

Sitka Gear was aware of this when they made the Riser Work Shirt.

I put the Sitka Gear Riser Work Shirt through the paces and this is how it performed.


Well known for quality hunting clothing and gear Sitka Gear is more than just that. They offer clothing for everyday that is tough and dependable. Case in point is the Riser Work Shirt I have been testing for about a month now. This sharp looking work shirt boasts moisture management and odor-control. Yes, we get stinky when working outside on our projects and around the homestead.


Is the Sitka Gear Riser Work Shirt just about business and not pleasure? Well certainly not. I have been literally living in it during the testing. It has found it’s way on my back into the woods, working on spring projects around the homestead and to town running errands. Currently I am wearing it while writing this review.

The fit is very nice due to the ability to layer over it when colder weather is here. While wearing the Sitka Gear Riser Work Shirt I can honestly report is very comfortable. The longer you wear it the softer it gets. The tough material so far has shed briar scratches and other hazards. The pattern chosen (copper plaid) is even quite attractive to my wife. That is certainly a big plus in my book!

The two front breast pockets are large, flapless and secured by single buttons. Larger objects can be placed in there without a flap closure getting in the way. It is certainly a neat feature on this ultra useful work shirt.


In summary I can attest to the durability of the Sitka Gear Riser Work Shirt. When you pay for quality you get the ultimate in performance. I have come to expect this from Sitka Gear and the Riser Work Shirt certainly does not disappoint.
