Went to upsate NY early season, this was a great addition to all my other baselayers. I like the fit and feel and was great around camp as well
In Texas, you sweat. It's inevitable. This shirt worked great at regulating temperature throughout the day when scouting. Never felt heavy or that kind of soggy wet that cotton will get when you're really getting after it.
I bought my wick short sleeve in June 2020 and have been mostly wearing in on Saturday's and a few short getaways. It looks good, I feel stylish without feeling like a noob...win, win. But my elk hunt last week really put the wick short sleeve to the test.
My hunt started with a six mile hike at 7500' in 75 degree heat with heavy packs...miserable...I'm talking sweat in your eye balls, I can't breath, why am I doing this kind of hike. I then elk hunted for three days in the backcountry with temps ranging from mid-30s in the morning to mid-70s in the afternoon. By day 3, my smart wool socks could walk themselves. My $60 Lululemon skivvies were doing some low-key uptown hip hop...you know, Da Funk. But even past Day 3, my wick short sleeve was acting like it was just another Saturday. When I strolled into town after hiking roughly 50 miles and sleeping on the ground for three nights without EVER taking my wick t-shirt off, no one was disgusted and I didn't have to stand down wind waiting for my first non-dehydrated meal in Steamboat Springs.
I'm buying First Lite wick weight everything now.
I picked up this shirt in gray earlier this year as I was scouting a lot for some upcoming hunts. I love this shirt layered under my long sleeve wick type shirts. The shirt is comfortable, and breathes really well. I recently bought a second one and they are my favorite under shirts for hunting / outdoor activities. If you are considering this shirt, you won't regret it!
I'm 5'11", 195 lbs. Muscular build and typically land between a L and XL. I purchased a large and it fits GREAT. These wool shirts stretch and form to any body type. Hands down the "coolest" shirt I own. I have tested it several times on long ruck marches and soaked it in sweat. Its dry within a couple hours after perspiration stops and there is zero smell. I may buy some more for "around town" gear. Couldn't be happier.
I can’t wait for the day my entire hunting gear is first lite! The quality, the customer service and the looks. This company has everything going for them! I’m a believer and I will be outfitting myself, my wife, my unborn son and the rest of my family in first lite! For both hunting and fishing!
I love this shirt nice and cool my new go to in September
When you're out in blazing heat, this shirt will keep you dry and comfortable. Great for early season hunts, fishing, or mowing your lawn. I have fairly broad shoulders and the large fit me perfectly. Barely feels like I'm wearing a shirt at all.
Wore the Wick Crew Short Sleeve on an extended 10 day backpacking trip through the Wasatch Mountain Range of Northern Utah.
The shirt dried quickly, never smelled. Maintained it's shape and helped to regulate my body temp...cool when hot and warm when it was cool.
Never itched, even when temps got up around 90o.
A bullet proof base layer.
I purchased these for hunting in south central AK, which I did. But then I got stationed in Guam. I’ve worn the earth color in uniform all day then did a run in the afternoon. After hanging it up in the laundry room it was dry in a few hours and didn’t smell of BO even a little. My UA running shirts can’t pull that off.
If that wasn’t enough, the light weight and breath ability outshine all my cotton and poly blend shirts.
