    An Early Season Must-Have

    These things are the real deal. I've used a couple different merino base layers the past few years, and they all promise the same thing: scent control, comfort, and wicking. But these are just, *different* somehow. They really live up to the claims. I noticed that these do dry exceptionally fast, and they also took on far less odor than other merino base layers I've had. Highly, highly recommend. This can easily be an all-season piece of clothing.

    Best gear around

    I hunt elk in the fall, and deer in the winter. However, my main job is a field guide for a wilderness therapy program, so needless to say my gear get used. . . A LOT. There is no gear out there that can hold up to the rigors of daily use like First Lite. As a guy who makes his living living outdoors I can honestly say First Lite has nailed it. I am on shift 8 days at a time and synthetics start to smell so bad I cannot stand to be around myself. However, the merino wool dries quick and can go for days without being washed. I absolutely love this gear!

    Good for days

    Great early season base layer. I put it to the test over 10 days running after elk. Having the zipper to vent was key. Then compared to my other gear it didn’t hold the smell as much. Over 10 days smell is bound to happen but the different fabric/ material was considerably noticeable.

    Love it!

    I’ve been wearing this next to skin for a years worth of hunting trips now. I just got back from a 6 night 7 day backcounty elk hunt during which I only took this layer off twice when I sweated it out. Threw it over a tree to dry while wearing my kiln hoody (my absolute favorite) and never did it stink! My only grip is the lack of a zipper guard which can leave the zipper rubbing your neck when zipped all the way up. I resolve this by leaving the zipper down half an inch and it isn’t a problem. I also have crazy long arms and this thing fits comfortably, even if using the thumb loops. I recommend anything merino from FL!

    Great shirt for hot weather

    I bow hunt in GA. I start when the season starts, early September. In GA, this is more summer than fall. This shirt does a great job of being light weight, breathable, and moisture wicking. I find many fabrics I've tried that advertise as light weight, moisture wicking, don't breathe well. So I end up getting hot anyway. This shirt breathes too In the hot weather I wear it as a single layer. I've just discovered merino wool in the last few years and it may be a secret sauce, event for hot hunts.

    Fantastic base layer

    The fit is fantastic! The length was great and that’s saying a lot with my large torso. Not too tight but also not too loose. Very good at pulling moisture away and regulating temps. I can’t wait to get more in different colors!
