Runs true to size. Being a smaller guy it’s hard to find quality clothing that fits well. This shirt fits perfect against the skin, and works well for laying. Recommend for an everyday shirt as well.
This is the first time I've worn any merino wool clothing. I'm 6'3" 180 with a 40" chest and 36" sleeve and a large fits PERFECT. It's close enough to the skin to layer, but can be worn alone without being a schmedium and the body length is long enough to tuck if you want to. I assumed, with the thumb holes, the large would be just long enough in the arms, but I can actually use them without it being a stretch. I wish they made more colors as I would buy them all for casual wear. The fabric feels like part of my body and is more wind resistant that I was expecting (I was expecting none), and is definitely more than any of the Sitka base layers I've worn. It does what they say merino does, which is cools when your hot and heats when your cold, which I'm not used to so I can't wrap my head around it. I'm experimenting with wearing it under my body armor for work and so far I'm staying warm when I sweat and it's cool out. We'll see about it keeping my warm in the cold. I would wear them even more if the care of merino didn't intimidate me, but I'm sure I'll figure it out.
Been wearing this garment for a base layer and alone it is great . I already have put it to the test it is truly as tough and rugged as the game I am hunting
Once again, Wick is the most comfortable material on the market. I ordered this piece in Fusion as my first gear from First Lite. This is super breathable, extremely lightweight, and does not stink. Wore it in a rain storm the other day and even then it was comfortable and dried rather quickly. Only complaint is that it will get picked on Rubus spp. and Smilax spp. in the south especially during green up season.
Really nice product overall, nicely made, stitches aren't cheap. Very breathable armpits!
Runs larger than my Sitka, Icebreaker and other brands.
I never wore small before but I should on that one..
I received this as a gift in 2019, and can't say enough good things about it. I've used this base layer to hike, stand and still fall/winter deer hunt, spring turkey hunt, run summer trail cameras, truly in every temperature and type of weather this region as presented. This base layer has been my go to, knowing the layer closest my skin will be dry, and keep me warm, and/or wick sweat depending on the time of year. It is truly impressive how versatile this layer is, and can keep you warm on cold days, but cool on hot days or while sweating. I look forward to adding the fuse/furnace lines to my closet to beef up my cold weather clothing.
I have this in the short sleeve version, but wanted something in the long sleeve for when I have to make my way through some California thickets. It did get snagged and ripped, but nothing that I couldn't repair in the field. Kept me warm during the cold California morning and dry when the sun came up. I did not feel like I was overheating in this long sleeve at all.
I film/photograph hunting for a living and need minimal amounts of gear that cover a large range of conditions. I use the crew all year long when Im layering under more insulated pieces that already have hoods. Ive used this piece on 90 degree turkey hunts, October elk hunts and late December whitetail hunts
I have tried most brands of lightweight long sleeve T's from Minus 33, Smartwool, Icebreaker and the quality of First Lite is unmatched. Just looking at and feeling the weave on this shirt i believe it will be much more durable than the others I have had which usually wear through the elbows and have small holes withing a couple of years. Added bonus are the long sleeves with thumb holes. My only recommendation would be to remove or minimize the branding on the exterior. Will definitely purchase more.
I've been using my army issued polyester base layers for bow hunting until this year when I finally decided to upgrade my gear. I'm very happy with this investment. Not only is the quality of the materials top notch, the construction of the garment it self looks to be fairly durable. I hope to be able to use these base layers for years to come.
