I have lived in a mountain town for more than half my life, yet the Khalibre Mountain Wear Men’s Lined Flannel Shirt Jacket is my first shirt jac. How did that happen?  

The shirt jac is a staple of mountain town life. I remember my grandfather wearing a shirt jac and I’ve often felt a twinge of envy as friends split wood in their perfectly suited for the weather shirt jacs.

Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity to review the one from Khalibre Mountain Wear. And, as a bonus, a Khalibre merino wool beanie showed up at my doorstep too.

Founded in 2014, Khalibre believes that clothing is an integral part of your outdoor experiences and should be well suited for your goals. The Park City, Utah-based company makes high-quality clothing with traditional materials.

Khalibre’s founding story is just as you might think. After searching for a proper winter coat that had style, quality, and value, Joe Schmieder was left out in the cold with yet another synthetic-based, overseas-made, overpriced, name-brand coat that would fade, stretch, and tear only a few short seasons after being purchased. 

After realizing he wasn’t going to find what he needed at a store, Joe decided to build the perfect coat himself. Materials: It had to be wool, the best wool. Style: Classic, yet updated for everyday wear. Construction: USA or bust!


The Khalibre Mountain Wear Men’s Lined Flannel Shirt Jacket Review

Reviewing the Khalibre Mountain Wear Men’s Lined Flannel Shirt Jacket is probably the easiest article I’ve ever tackled here at Garage Grown Gear. December in Teton Valley, Idaho is shirt jac central.  I put it on as soon as I opened the box, and then immediately headed to my son’s Christmas program. I showed up to about 24 other Dads wearing their shirt jacs. I fit right in!

Splitting wood, kicksledding, walking the dogs are all in a day’s work here and Khalibre’s flannel shirt jacket rises well to the occasion. The quality and craftsmanship are obvious and exceptional. It’s made right here in the USA from the highest quality cotton available. This is truly a shirt you’ll be passing onto your children and grandchildren.  I noticed my son checking it out and already told him he could have it when he was old enough.

 

Khalibre’s Lined Flannel Shirt Jacket is available in 3 color styles (all plaid of course)and offered in size medium through extra large.  I’m 6’1” and 160 pounds and large fits me nicely with a lighter shirt underneath.  I even went double flannel a few times! 

At $229 Khalibre’s flannel shirt jacket falls in the high-end price range, but if you are looking for the best quality you can buy made right here in the USA, this is it.

 

The Khalibre Mountain Wear Merino Wool Beanie Mini Review

I was as impressed with the Khalibre beanie as I was with the shirt jacket. I have acquired around a dozen beanies made from various materials over the years.  Khalibre’s is made from 100% merino wool, for which I have several, but this one is by far the softest one I’ve ever stuck my head in and the first one that has zero itch.  I’ve actually looked at the label inside a few times to make sure I didn’t miss something; it’s just so soft it doesn’t feel like any wool I’ve had before.


The Bottom Line: If you’re looking for high-quality mountain apparel, made right here in the USA with the best fabrics and craftsmanship, take a look at Khalibre.
