Perfect for a hot AZ summer scouting speed goat

I’m an old school hunter. Mostly wear my old army gear or surplus gear. My son talked me into trying this hoodie and some Sitka pants. I haven’t tested them in the cats claw yet but they were breathable and very comfortable in the hot weather. Not sure if the camo pattern will fool game but it fooled me

Quality Sitka

I thought I would give the Sitka lightweight hoody a try. I’m pleasantly surprised at how light it actually is. It’s perfect for my needs. This works out perfect for the early mornings in September. Pull up the hoodie and get lightweight warmth on the back of my neck. Once it warms up a bit just pull down the hoddy and I’m still good to go without packing the weight of a jacket the rest of the day. It’s just like the rest of my Sitka gear……. Good Stuff…..Good fit….Good Quality with no disappointment.

Excellent hunting shirt

This does have a bit of an athletic fit, but this works well for me. Love the hood and the face cover all together. I have this shirt in sub alpine and open country. Works great for early season archery hunt. I also use it in late season with a thermal shirt underneath.

Fits good, comfortable against skin

I’ve only worn this piece once on a turkey hunt. The hoody is comfortable and I love the built in mask.
