The Wick LS Crew is the foundation of my layering system. The light weight of the wool, with breathable panels and thumb holes combine for a tremendous baselayer. I used two sets of the Crew and Long Briefs on a 7-day Idaho elk hunt. The Wick kept off the stink for several bivy nights and dried well under a puffy while glassing or eating in the evenings. The top was durable under my pack and tens of miles of mountain hunting, with the exception of some pilling underneath my bino harness. When things get cold in the whitetail woods, I just throw on a long baselayer bottom and keep my normal layering system up top of a fleece, puffy and shell.
This shirt is made for hunting and not for looking pretty. The sleeves are plenty long so when you use the thumb hole it doesn't tug on your thumb unlike some other camo layers that I have. The length is great so you can tuck it in and not have plumbers butt showing when you are moving around, bending, climbing up in your stand, etc. Overall I gave this a 4 star, my one complaint is the neck is loose. This does save on me wearing it all winter long as I wear a 1/4 zip from smart*#@l that has a mock neck so it is tight around the neck where you can lose a lot of body heat instead of this. I've worn this as my base layer from 60F to 10F hunting archery, squirrels, gun and muzzleloader seasons.
The bit large under fit is the torso material is pretty loose compared to the arms and shoulders.
I use this piece of gear for everything. Warm weather, cold weather and everything in between. If it's not my next to skin piece, there is only one layer between me and it. Fit is perfect.
I wore this last year for a Pronghorn hunt in Wyoming. The Wick LS and the Corrugate Guide Jacket was all I needed. I've used it for my base layer in the mid-west for deer hunting. I couldn't be happier!
I used this LS Wick shirt for the first time today in 93* heat in Late September in Georgia. Definitely kept me cool and I noticed it seemed to take advantage of the slightest breeze. This is a must have item if you hunt in the South East!
