The Lightweight Alaskan Guide Shirt is an all-season workhorse. It’s built for year-round comfort, durability and practical functionality in the field, on the job or just kicking around the ranch. It’s a lighter-weight variation of our iconic Alaskan Guide Shirt that’s been a go-to, trusted favorite of ranchers, guides and bush pilots since 1996.

Our original Alaskan Guide Shirt has proven itself a favorite time and again from Alaska to Maine to the Rockies, and when our customers asked for a version that was comfortable in southern climes and warmer months, we listened. The result, now made with lighter-weight 4-oz. cotton twill, exceeds expectations for versatility, comfort and universal utility. The brushed cotton is soft, yet durable. The relaxed fit and rear-shoulder box pleat allows non-binding ease of motion, while allowing plenty of air circulation. Expandable, gusseted chest pockets with button-close flaps keep small valuables handy and secure. The custom Filson-logo buttons on the front closure and adjustable cuffs are made from chip resistant polyester for years of durability.
