Default Canvas pullover shirt

I am looking for tough fabric canvas pullover shirt - sweatshirt type but tough fabric that doesn't get stuck in prickers - like the outer material in Carhart jackets but they are too hot for this time of year. Has anyone seen pullover shirts that have a canvas type material anywhere? I have some denim material type shirts but would like the pull over maybe even with a pocket in fornt - the carhart sweatshirts get stuck on proickers and shit.

Thanks

(Its been so dry and windy we have had forest fire alerts or red flags or whatever and I am trying to clear all the brush within a couple hundred feet - just in case. Lots of fuel out there and REAL dry. Never seen a spring like this in my lifetime.....)

Ain't no such thing....best bet is to use RoundUp with sufficant.

Been keeping farm fields cleared of the infernal things for 24+years. Some with spikes 1+" that bite hard. Deer herds like to trim 'em down, but never dead. Tools have been RoundUp mixes,machete,brush cutter,pole saw and bush hog. Nuked one with a mix that we had been trying to get rid of in a barway unsuccesssfully a few years back and it looked like a moonscape for a couiple of years...nothing grew back in the area.

Best gloves have been Greier ranchers. Instead of ruining my expensive Carhartt when wood harvesting/field clearing been getting good mileage with some Tractor Supply Schmidt brands (jeans and hoodie). If determined to get into the stuff, might take a look at Duluth Trading post 'firehose' canvas (pricey).

The brair proof garments I have, have a very stiff and tightly wooven cordura outer layer. I think it would be to stiff to make a pull over out of though you might find an unlined jacket. Either way they will be hot due to the limited airflow they allow.
