Minaret Aerowool Short Sleeve Crew

We married our top-shelf Merino Wool for odor mitigation with the incredible moisture wicking properties of our outerwear technology, 37.5 by Cocona, and created Aerowool - the ultimate active hunting and warm weather ultralight base layer. Anytime a premium is placed on moisture evacuation during active hunting or use in hot climates, First Lite's exclusive Aerowool is your new go-to base layer. The Minaret SS Crew is the short sleeved, top layer of the system, providing fantastic moisture wicking with the odor mitigation you know and love from Merino to help you stay cool in the most demanding environments.

Minaret Aerowool TeeReview by Danos
I ordered one minaret short sleeve crew and when I saw how well it would work for me I ordered a second. I did however, need to order a size larger than I take in my long sleeve First Lite gear. I am 5'8" and 160lbs and I wear a medium in the minaret, but a small in the llano and uncomphagre pieces.

Great base layerReview by Trevman
I wore this under my Wilkins and it worked as a great base layer. When I got warm, I shed a layer and just wore this as my main layer. It drys within minutes and is really light weight. I'll be buying more. (Posted on 7/31/2017)

Field Tested and ApprovedReview by Zachary
After several days of back country elk scouting and working our tail off, this shirt has earned itself a front row seat! Wore this shirt for 3 days straight, no lie. Got home to my fiance and almost convinced her the shirt was brand new out of the package. You name it, this shirts meant for it, from hunting to fishing to dinner out with friends.

6'0, 175lbs, large fits perfect. (Posted on 7/22/2017)
Great undershirtReview by Ryan
I wear these under my body armor while on water patrol in Florida and I could not be happier. You think a fart in a warm elevator smells bad, smell a game wardens body armor after a weekend of water patrol. I started wearing these with the hope it would cut down on smell and it works amazingly well. I do not have to peel them off when I get home like many other dry fit style shirts I have used in the past. The wool doesn't stick to you like synthetics or cotton. I am an aerowool believer.

Must have for hot weather!Review by Jared
The short sleeve Aerowool Crew is perfect for hot weather. If you are exposed to hot and humid conditions during the summer months, this shirt works perfectly as a base layer or worn as an outer layer alone. The Aerowool keeps you cool, breathes great, retains no odor, and dries fast. This shirt is a must have for warmer conditions. (Posted on 7/18/2017)
Excellent!!Review by Chris
Breathable and fits perfect. I use as a base layer under a ballistic vest. Keeps me much cooler and dry compared to many other products I've tried. As a hunter it makes a perfect base layer as well. I've also just worn as an outer shirt and it looks great.

Highly recommend (Posted on 7/13/2017)
Perfect!Review by Gabe
So glad they came out with the short sleeve version of the Minaret! Breathes awesome, fit is spot on, and dries fast. My go to shirt for summer training hikes, scouting, and early season warm days in the field. (Posted on 7/12/2017)
Minaret Aerowool Short Sleeve Crew Review by Mike
I needed gear that I could dual utilize as a base layer for chasing mule deer in the fall and keep me cool under my ballistics vest while at work. In the blistering hot 115 degree days in the State of Arizona the Aerowool short sleeve shirt performed flawlessly. A firm believer in First Lite quality !! For those of you in law enforcement Aerowool is a must as a base layer while out in the field . (Posted on 7/6/2017)
Awsome shirt!Review by Jesse from AK
Sizing is spot on if you want an athletic fit and if you want a looser fit just go up a size. This shirt is going to be my new go to for all of my outdoor pursuits here in Alaska, From fishing in the summer to hunting in September, I'll be wearing the Minaret. (Posted on 6/20/2017)
