While we tend to prioritize outer layers and rain gear, good base and mid layers help round out your system and provide versatility. Case in point: the Sitka Core Heavyweight Hoody. This is our most-worn piece of clothing both on and off the mountain. The lofted fleece is a bit warm for early season hunts (see lightweight option), but it’s great when the thermals kick up or the sun is hiding and you don’t quite need a jacket.
Mid to late season, we wear it all day every day. The hood with slanted zipper is perfect when you need extra protection from wind or sun, and the Polygiene Odor Control Technology neutralizes odor by stopping the growth of odor-causing bacteria and fungi.
The large runs 13.3oz. We feel this piece is a must have for all mid-late season hunting.
