Ultralight 150 Aerowool


Color/PatternFirst Lite Cipher

From the archery opener in Idaho and desert aoudad in Texas to the humid evening hunts of the Carolinas, the Men's Wick Hoody is First Lite's new ultralight hoody designed for hot weather and high exertion. The airy 150 gram Aerowool construction and loose fitting hood provide breathable concealment and sun protection in the warmest conditions. This layer also features 125 gram Aerowool mesh panels to maximize ventilation during active hunts. The Men's Wick Hoody is the new standard for quick drying, odor-resistant, ultralight base layers.

Ultralight 150 Aerowool construction combines the finest, 17.5 micron merino wool available with 37.5-activated nylon fibers to create a super-charged fabric with incredible performance benefits. Our Wick styles also integrate 125 gram Aerowool mesh to targeted hot-zones. that also utilizes 17.5 micron merino and 37.5-activated nylon fibers. What you get is enhanced odor resistance, exponentially improved dry times, increased durability and moisture wicking, and a fabric that can cool you down when you're heating up and warm you up when it's cooling down.

The Wick Ultralight 150 Aerowool is also available in a men's Quarter ZipCrew and a Short Sleeve Crew

Excellent concept and fit, extremely delicate fabric.

Early-to-mid 2000's Icebreaker and Ibex products will forever be the gold standard in merino, and no company appears likely to attain that quality and durability again. I have 10 year-old 200 weight Icebreaker t-shirts that refuse to fall apart. The Kiln hoodie is awesome, but too heavy for me in Western Montana until about the beginning of rifle. There is a definite need for a durable, lightweight merino hoodie.The fit, panel layout, and overall conceptual design of this hoodie are fantastic, but I essentially destroyed it in fewer than 10 days this bow season, even though I was as careful as possible. The weave of the fabric is just too light-duty and delicate, and the stitching between panels, though at first glance appears really stout, is comprised of a thread that catches on anything it comes into contact with and begins to fray. The area around the thumb loops in particular is delicate and prone to ripping. They would benefit from reinforcement. I've also seen some companies building in slits so you can check your watch while wearing thumb loops, which could be cool. Pack straps are also not particularly kind to the fabric.I had a bunch of the holes sewn shut by a tailor, but the repairs aren't going to hold in the woods, so this has unfortunately been relegated to cool-weather road running duty. Hope to see this lightweight hoodie again soon in a more durable weave with key structural reinforcements.

Outstanding base layer

Outstanding base layer for early season archery in SW Washington when temps get up to 75+. By late morning to evening it's the only layer I needed. Drys quickly and breaths very well.

Fit Comments: i'm sort of in between a large and a medium and the medium was perfect. snug but not awkwardly tight. a large for me would've been too baggy
knocked it out of the park with this

they really nailed it with this top. fit, function and materials are a big improvement from the previous aerowool base layers. it's incredibly comfortable on its own for hot weather hunts, but easily serves as a great next to skin layer when you need to layer on top. my favorite part is the hood design, amen to no zippers. super comfortable and functional. provides great cover for when you're in close, with no worry of it interfering with your anchor point or hitting you string. i'm a fair skinned hunter unfortunately, so this provides excellent sun protection without feeling like you're going to burn up. you can have it up alway with no stress. can't think of any hunts where i wouldn't want this with me. sick top

Buttery soft and warm. The hood is a perfect fit and keeps the back of my neck warm. My new go to for early season base layer.

Fit: 3
Fit Comments: I have the Medium and like it. I go either M or L for first lite tops which is frustrating. The llano I have in L, so I first ordered this in Large and didn't like it. The M fits just right.
Really great piece of gear

I used to wear the llano as a base layer but I decided to try this out and I'm glad I did. With the hood it does a great job of keeping the sun off. I stayed dry despite much hiking in a lot of September heat. I also slept in it and noticed that my armpits were a little uncomfortable in the mornings...about my only complaint. This also was a on the smelly side for first lite gear. After 5 days of continuous wear my wife rated it a 6 on a scale of 10 with 10 being &quote;burn it.&quote; I wasn't surprised as I could definitely smell myself by the end of it. The llano was not as smelly.
