Make old Ben proud.

Whether or not Ben Franklin wore plaid is up for debate. One thing is for sure, if he did it would have definitely been the Mountain Hardwear Men's Franklin Shirt. Made from a cotton, polyester blend, this mountain-friendly plaid shirt has what it takes whether you're hiking Mount Washington or conducting a little electrical experiment during a lightning shower.

Don't waste your time

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Large

Boxy fit and colors don't pop like on website photo. I got cote du rhone in size L (6' 1", 183lbs) and it drapes on me like a dress. Maybe medium would've been better but even then the colors all kind of meld together unattractively. Can't recommend this one. On the plus side, Backcountry got it to me amazingly quickly, so props to them. Unfortunately, this one is going back and I would heavily advise you to consider other options given the nearly $60 price tag.

Great Shirt

    This shirt fits true to size for me. Typically a large and the large fits very well. Also, it has a great feel and style!

    Not made for big men

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small

    I wear XL and sometimes L in most button down shirts. I'm 6'2" but typically don't have a problem with shirt length. Most of Mountain Hardwear Jackets & pullovers I have are great. This shirt is not great. Extremely thin, almost like a slim fit and ridiculously short.
    Backcountry is still great though.
