I love the light weight core line. The quality is great and the solids can be worn casually or while skiing/climbing...

If you are having a tough decision about whether to get LG or XL, go with the XL. I can normally wear a LG in Sitka, but the core hoody is definitely an XL.

I'll buy every color.

I purchased this top from Sitka prior to whitetail season here in Kansas. I have been using it for both ground and stand hunting in both a single top and as a layering piece. The garment has performed flawlessly during temps in the 80's down to the 30's and is extremely functional. It is comfortable, dries quickly, and is very lightweight which makes layering easy. The hood and facemask are very functional and eliminates carrying extra clothes around. The hood is especially convenient to keep wind off the skin. On sub 40°F temp days, I use this as a base layer so I have the hood to utilize under my hat as I hate having thick balaclavas or stocking hats over my ears. Combine it with a mid-layer and the Stratus system and I am good to go. A large fits perfect and I am 5'8", 175lbs. I'll be purchasing more of this garment in the future.

Awesome shirt! Perfect for teal and October hunting here in MN. Maybe the only thing I would add would be a slit in the face mask to lose less air while calling.

Literally the best lightweight base layer ever! Choose your camo or solid and just order it. The hood/face mask for hunting or event cold alpine hikes is amazing. I've been hiking or climbing in the Rocky Mountains for the last 15 years and I love this base layer. It's usually all you need if you're active on that movement. Just keep your shell in your bag and you're good to go!

Sitka quality as always. This hoody looks light and not so warm but let me tell you, it’s more powerful than meets the eye. Will be perfect over my merino base layer to keep warm on days out west in the moderate temps. Nice face mask option for turkey hunting too!

A core piece of the system. Put it on first and the rest of the system protects you. This is essential. It doesn’t matter if it’s 95°F or 0°F, this is the first thing on and build off of it. Absolutely amazing.

I own three of these and primarily use them as base layer for warm weather (over 32 deg F) pheasant hunting. Hood is great in windy cold conditions or as temps drop later in the day Also use as a primary layer during warm weather archery hunting. For those wondering about fit....I'm 6'1", 200 lbs with long torso, and prefer a loose fit. 2XL is a perfect fit for me. Only improvement offer I have is adding blaze orange to the existing color choices.

I was always an UA / Merino guy until I tried this shirt. The ability for this shirt to dry when I sweat it out in a short amount of time kept me comfortable in hot weather and high exertion. It's also a very comfortable against the skin layer. I was worried about the feel of having a zipper next to my chest and it's not been an issue at all. They've done a great job of making it extremely comfortable even for those of us with chest hair.
