We found that the majority of base layers offered zero technical features, requiring hunters to carry additional pieces of gear into the field to meet the demands of the pursuit. Our solution was to create a high-performance next-to-skin layer that includes technical features to improve concealment and utility. By optimizing breathability and moisture management and adding features not found in traditional base layers, the Core Lightweight Hoody can be used as a standalone piece in hot weather or as the foundational baselayer into any SITKA system.
