Staff Systems: Summer Scouting
Fran Magee: Customer Service Representative
"Early season is all about battling cool mornings and blistering hot days. This early season system will provide great sun protection while keeping you warm in the mornings and cool during the day. The foundation of every great layering system starts with a merino base layer. The Wick Hoody and Boxer Briefs have the ability to wick moisture, regulate body temperature over a large range, and control body odor for extended use without needing to wash. Our Guide Lite Pants are our most breathable option geared towards early-season missions. They are a great option for summer scouting into September archery. Moving on to a mid-layer the Wick QZ will add just enough insulation for cool mornings/afternoons. If additional warmth is required, throwing on a Catalyst Vest will help keep your core warm and block some wind. An insulating layer is never a bad idea to bring along if you plan on glassing for extended periods of time. Our Brooks Down Sweater has a great warmth to weight ratio and takes up very little space in your pack. Wrapping everything up in our Vapor Ultralight Rain Jacket and Boundary Stormtight Pant will ensure you can stay in the field if there is a flash storm or high winds."
