I bought this shirt to wear with the underwear and feel the neckline on this short sleeve is way too open for practical purposes for a wool shirt. I wear wool for running, hiking, skiing, hunting, firefighting and this is not very practical for warmth and outdoor elements. I like to wear layers and bring other layers as I sweat and can change into something warm immediately, this shirt does not fit that bill. The neck line is too low to make it a warm alternative to changing into dry clothes after a sweaty hike. It doesn't have the appearance of a low neckline when ordering and I am disappointed in the First Lite wool line of undergarments. I think the crew long sleeve is more my style along with the discontinued boy short that was the best wool undergarment for skiing and other cold weather activities. I ordered the Xl thinking it might shrink and if too big, could run in the dryer to shrink. But the neckline is what keeps this from being a warm practical shirts in cold weather without another shirt over the top.
I recently purchased this shirt for my antelope hunt and have nothing but great things to say. It's light weight, breathable, and the material is soft which is always a plus. The length is perfect if you want to tuck it in or pull it down lower underneath a sweatshirt. The shirt doesn't ride up while walking around and hugs the body nicely. I ordered a true to size shirt and it fits just right but if you want it to be a little less snug, I'd recommend ordering a size larger than what you usually wear. If you're looking for an awesome hunting shirt, First Lite is leading the way in woman's hunting gear and I'm very happy with my purchase!
Soft material, not bad but very clingy. I am usually a size medium (5'6" 140lbs) in shirts. I was wary of buying a "womens" shirt as they are usually tight and uncomfortable but First Lite has never failed me. Well, until this shirt. I bought a large to make absolutely sure it would be comfortable and it was still clingy- it also has a weird neck line that the guys shirt doesn't have. I ended up returning it and getting the mens small t-shirt. It's super comfy and "flowy"- just like my partners AND the neckline is normal :) No sunburn for me. Anyway, just my two cents.If you want to be comfy, buy the mens shirt.
I was ecstatic to see a women's cut shirt because I am on the shorter and smaller size and their men's small products drown me. My husband surprised me with this gift before archery season because he knows that I needed a Fusion pattern shirt. It was pretty funny when these along with the pants were released because I remember emailing the First Lite team about a women's knabb pant and a short sleeve but receiving an email back saying they didn't have enough of a women's market to make the products. Anyways, I have first lite gear from head to toe that I personally get a size small in all my gear because I can't stand my shirts or pants being tight to my skin, no matter how breathable the fabric. I am typically an XS but always get a Small for comfortability. I am 5'0 and about 110 pounds. Although I am grateful they made a women's shirt, the cut of the neck was too LOW and my bino harness was cutting into my neck every hot day during archery season. Thankfully the weather cooled down and I was able to wear my Kiln Hoody to save my neck skin. As far as the length, it was perfect for tucking in because I wear a big day pack. Maybe I should have gotten an XS but I like the comfort and looseness of the small. I have a small men's shirt but I look like a child wearing my parent's shirt and it is too much fabric. I would love for them to make a shirt that is cut normally...I don't think deer or elk care for cleavage. LOL. I'm not trying to look cute while hunting, I just want camo that covers me. First lite, please make a women's normal neck cut t-shirt with normal length sleeves.
