I used the wick LS crew as my base layer for a 4-day spring turkey hunt this year. I've worn the llano QZ, chama QZ, kiln hoody, plus merino pieces from IB and merino blend pieces from BO. The wick LS crew tops them all in comfort and performance. After 4 hot days hiking the hills in Eastern Washington, I packed up camp and put on a soft, clean cotton t-shirt. Oddly enough, the very comfortable cotton t-shirt struck me as less comfy than the wick I'd been wearing all weekend. I took off the t-shirt and put the wick back on for the drive home. It's just that comfy, and odor-free, even after 4 days sweating in the heat. It dries noticeably faster than the pure merino pieces (and faster than 50/50 merino/synth blends from a different company) and feels as close to a second skin as anything I've worn. Having purchased the "crew" version of this shirt and having previously owned the llano QZ, I was concerned I'd miss the quarter zip during high-exertion, but the aerowool is light and airy enough that I never missed the zipper in spring sun with highs around 80. Can't wait to use this for elk in September. I'm going to get some solid color aerowool pieces for everyday use, too, because I literally want to never take this thing off.
Very nice for the early archery hunt in August when the heat can make things miserable. Great at wicking perspiration and keeping you cool. Great camo, also!
I wore this thing during Colorado archery, MD sika archery in the swamps, and bird hunting across have the US. extremely versatile. Recommend buying 2 or 3. I only had one. I could get 3 days of heavy sweating before it became a bit to gross to wear. Still, never held and odor as long as you dried it out.
This shirt is perfect for early season. It is exceptionally breathable and comfortable for hike to stand and on stand. It dries quick and has no odor after several days hunting whitetail. Late season I use it as a baselayer under my furnace set and catalyst set. I have three hanging in my closet.
This has been a staple of my system, whether as a base layer for those chilly mornings or as my top during those warm days or energy burning hikes. Definitely recommend this to anyone who is considering a wick top, I would go with this over the hoody and pick up a Kiln Hoody for those colder mornings.
