Outbound Reviewed: Pladra’s Peregrine Flannel - Women’s

​My favorite flannel shirt

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty happy flannels are back in style. I remember living in them as a kid, then somewhere along the adolescent path I lost interest. Styles changed and as my body grew my old go-tos no longer fit well.

Earlier this year I read some reviews about highly-recommended women’s flannels and I took a chance on one of them - the Peregrine Flannel from the San Francisco-based company, Pladra. It didn’t take long for this to become a staple in my wardrobe, nor the only one…

Soft, fitted, and medium-weight cotton, I feel like the Peregrine was made for life in San Francisco or mountain towns. The weave is tight enough to help minimize wind exposure when the afternoon gusts kick in and durable to withstand the demands of my adventures. The flannel is stylish (with great color options) and retains its shape wash after wash.

This Peregrine is surprisingly well-designed. It is long enough to move around in without feeling exposed. It is fitted in a way that is flattering without being super tight, but much more feminine than the typical boxy flannels. The cuffs have fun designs on them which is a nice touch even though I never wear mine exposed. And the sleeves are surprisingly long (in a good way), which means that when the flannel shrinks a tiny bit in the dryer they become the perfect length. One quick note about shrinking: Don’t be afraid of it. The first few times I washed mine in cool water and dried on medium heat and it shrunk in all the right places making it even more comfy.

There isn’t a ton of stretch in the Peregrine, so I probably wouldn’t wear it chopping wood or while moving big, heavy boxes around, but from the office to the bar to camp to the belay ledge (not necessarily in that order), this is my go-to flannel I get stoked to pull out of my closet and now live in day after day.

Proudly made in the USA, Pladra is a San Francisco-based company built around a passion for building flannels that keep you warm and comfortable in the outdoors while withstanding the rigors the outdoor lifestyle puts on them.
