This is an excellent piece of hunting gear. Archery hunting in Colorado requires layering and adaptable clothing. The hood and facemask, along with the light weight material makes this a very versatile piece of clothing for the varying temperatures here in Colorado.

This is great. I wear it next to skin and any sweat evaporates quickly . The hood fits perfectly over a hat,and the mask is nice too.

Love the material. Wish the hood didn’t have to be up for the face mask to be up. Is very comfortable. Even in extremely hot climates, like a Florida swamp in the summer time! Nothing else survives that kind of heat!

Have worn the lightweight on many high temp hunts from Spring and Fall bear too, Archery Elk season. It functions as a great high-temp base layer. No issues what-so-ever. Came to full draw at 12 yards with my bull from this year looking directly at me. It was like he was looking through me and didn't notice me at all. Took my shot and harvested that elk. Now I just need to pick-up a few more of these so I'm not wearing the same one for 10 days.

This should be a staple in every hunter's kit. No other base layer is as versatile and comfortable in my opinion. Get one in every pattern you need.

If I could only keep one piece of my Sitka Gear, this would be it...I never walk into the turkey woods without it. The built-in mask is my favorite feature. If you've ever got setup first thing in the morning then realize you've forgotten your mask or have a gobbler come in on you unexpectedly and you have to search thru your vest to find your mask, you know what I'm talking about.

In today's social environment, I find it equally advantageous. I bought a couple of extra in black and wear one every time I back my truck out of the garage. They are as comfortable to wear all day long as any shirt I own and any time I need to stop for gas or run into a store, I have my mask.

Recently used this in the Mid Atlantic woods (85 degrees). It performed flawlessly and I did not overheat.

It provides excellent bug protection as well. I didn’t have Deet on and I didn’t get bitten once

I originally bought the Equinox hoodie, but found it too warm for early season. The core lightweight is perfect. I’m keeping the Equinox for mid season
