This was my first first lite product. Been a huge rinella fan for a long time so been wanting to try their products for a long time to say the least. So I just returned from a quota archery hunt in East Tennessee and wore this the entirety of my trip. Dried quick when sweaty but kept me warm when the wind picked up in the evenings once the sun went down. I usually have a problem with long sleeve garments due to having very long arms. This hoodie fit perfectly and I wouldn’t change a single thing about it.
Bought the wick hoody for a light weight layer. Wore the hoody 8 days in a row as my base layer in the mornings when we started out first climb then wore it as my only layer once my body got warmed up. was super comfortable on the skin and there was no irritation. I rinsed the wick hoody in the creek twice during the duration of trip...after ringing out the excess water I put it back on. It dried quickly but also kept mem cool in the afternoons while chasing bulls through some pretty steep and rough country. I had another light weight merino layer...(another brand) and put it on one day and it rubbed me raw under my pack straps, went right back to the wick hoody and never looked back! I will most certainly be buying a second one! It is the best light weight layer I have ever worn. The hood also gave me protection from the sun when side hilling when sun was up high.
I took a wick 150 with the hood and wick 150 without a hood plus a wick 250 with a hood on an elk hunt to idaho. Temp ranged 20 degrees at night up to 70 degrees during the day. I layered all 3 depending on the weather with just a t shirt on under them. I was not prepared for it to get that cold but have all 3 gave me a good versatile arrangement and easy to add or remove 1 layer depending on the conditions
Love it! Made me realize I have man boobs and could really use a push-up

Just purchased this hoody to go with my corrugate guide pants which I purchased the season before for the archery deer in Utah I hunt northern Utah right on the border of Idaho and it’s usually way hot during august and cool and windy in the nights and mornings. High dry alpine and desert I wore this hoody for a week straight only took it off to air it out when cooling off hiking throw it over a branch dry in minutes it never started to smell and is the perfect single layer for warm dry temps. I love this gear will be purchasing the merino pants next for sure.!!!
But not nearly as small as I expected. To be fair, I am LEAN and will always struggle to find anything slim enough for my size. I like my baselayers to basically fit skin tight, and the small is more what I expected a medium to be. That's ok though, because disobeying the washing instructions with a hot water wash then drying by the fire will shrink it down nicely for me. The looser fit will make it awesome for warm summer days on the river chasing trout or the long sweaty trudge back to the truck with some wild pork weighing me down, but being the end of winter in New Zealand right now I wish it were a little tighter fit.
Still one of the only high end merino hoody bases I can find though, and for now thats good enough.
This is perfect of early bow weapon stuff for here in the South where I am when the humidity and temp males it feel like 212 degrees as you walk into a shower. Oh wait I sweat on top of that as well! This hood wicks up everything with the Merino wool yet still stays dry and breathable. Tried everything down here and this has quickly become my go to for outwear and insulation later on in Nov. Its worth the price and investment if your struggling with the decision.
I just hunted the Utah Archery Elk opener in 85 degree daytime highs and I couldn't be happier with this hoodie. From the early morning 50s to busting hump upslope in the 80s, I was comfortable in this hoodie. I was extremely thankful for the armpit ventilation. The merino wool definitely kept the sweat stink down and the cipher pattern kept me well hidden in plain sight. I had mule deer pass by as if I weren't even there, when they should have busted me. I definitely like the form fitting hood, and it didn't obstruct my hearing as much as I anticipated. The overall fit is perfect for a tall, lean build.
Lightweight but warm. comfortable. doesn't smell. the hood is a bonus. camo pattern works great. fits great and looks great.
