    I’ve been wearing flannel button ups for as far as I can remember and some years ago a buddy of mine turned me onto magpul button up shirts, both heavy and lightweight varieties. I’m not usually a fan boy but I got to tell you these are some damn quality shirts and for the longest time I was getting them at LAPG for like $16 or something ridiculously cheap. However, that source seems to have dried up or magpul is no longer making them. Does anyone else know of some quality shirts like these and where to get them that won’t break the bank? If you’ve never owned any of these then you won’t know what I’m talking about. Lol.

    Idk about not breaking the bank. But the vertx ones are really nice. I’ve also heard good things about Dixon flannel and first spear.

    Thanks for the recommendations. I know of Vertx and First Spear but wasn’t familiar with Dixxon flannel. Looks like some quality stuff. Damn I wish I could find some more for $16 lol. Can’t beat that price!

    Break the bank and try merino wool 250 weight. 1/4 zip for upper

    Smartwool, Icebreaker, Ibex

    I like Smartwool a lot, owning Icebreaker as well

    The equivalent of going custom vs getting a Savage.

    They'll both keep you warm/put a bullet on target. HOW they go about doing that is what you're paying for.

    Reoccurring theme?

    Another vote for Duluth Trading.

    Carhart ones are decent but can be pricey pretty much just for the name. Duluth are nice and Pendleton.

    Pendleton is pretty pricey as well.

    Warning about merino wool: it has the resiliency of tissue paper. But it's the nicest clothing material for cool and cold weather IME

    Not sure quality level compared to others listed but I’m happy with the ones I picked up at Costco for around $14.00.

    Brownells sells the magpul ones for $25. I would also have to give a shout out to moosejaw. They have quality stuff for great prices and have a bit of everything. Great company for sure

    Ive been wearing Dulut flannel for five years and they hold up well. The secret with Duluth clothing is to get on their email list. They run weekly specials and typically offer 25% up to 30% off coupons. Never pay retail MSRP.

    Currently they have their Free Swinging Flannels on clearance for $25 and FREE shipping o orders of $75

    Lots of great options out there, with no one brand that rules the roost.

    My personal criteria may vary with yours/others.

    The various Duluth offerings fit my requirements ergo my choice.

    Wear a couple if you can, or catch and release then go from there.

    Flannels are TONS cheaper than the other toys we all play with involved in this site!

    And another Costco vote here. Cheap and don't shrink as fast as some of the other cheap offerings (Fleet Farm), plus can get them in different weights. Thick for colder weather, thin for more fair weather. Choices are completely at the whim of their buyers though so the wife picks them up as they are available. For $15 or whatever IMHO you can't beat them for heavy use in tough environments that may destroy them. Plus they are pretty soft and make great rags if they do get unwearable.

    Filson if quality, workmanship and warmth are important but cost is high. Is it worth it??? Personal opinion is yes but that is me

    Costco for the rest of it. Costco is a great deal...bought 4 cotton flannel shirts for $60.

    For shooting I love the Alaskan hard gear flannels from Duluth trading. I found them a little more stylish than the regular Duluth ones as a bonus. For shooting the plus is a little stretch flex in the fabric for movement, good pockets, a flap on one side, slash zipper on other and they have an optic cleaning micro fiber cloth on the bottom for your eye pro. Long length to hide handgun as well. Overall my favorite shirts.

    If you like them a little more fitted I have been trying out untuckit shirts the last few months and their flannels are easily my favorite shirts now. Planning on getting another this weekend. I get mine in the slim fit trim which most others don’t offee

    I’m cheap when it comes to clothes because they don’t last with me. That being said, I picked up some of the Kohl’s house brand (Urban Pipeline) and have been happy. Especially for $10-$12 each.
