The ultimate early season next-to-skin piece that is likely to double duty as your outerwear piece. When days are long with extended exposure to the sun, not only will the Core fabric dry quickly after hard grinds, the hood offers much appreciated protection from the rays above.  And when it's go time, flip the hood up and over for instant concealment of that pie face that sticks out like a sore thumb.


Athlete Perspective

Athlete Perspective

“Your head and hands lose heat more rapidly than any other part of your body. I tie that knowledge in with the way I use all of my gear, including the Core Hoody. It helps regulate body temp and wick moisture on mountain hunts, or in any hunting situation. The ability to place my hands through the thumb loops and flip on the hood allows me to to retain a bit of heat after a big push to the top without the painstaking time of reaching into my pack for another layer. I also love how I can protect my head and neck from the sun’s rays on long glassing sessions.”

Just got my hoody and wore it on a quick 1 day hunting trip. Crashing some pretty nasty bush with a pack and the shirt stayed dry and didn't stink at the end of the day. Performed flawlessly!!

Great shirt. Perfect as an outer layer on warmer days and will be very nice as a layer. The zippered chest pocket is an very nice addition. Held my range finder perfectly. The hoody is almost a face mask as it covers more than a hood and you can easily hear through it. The zipper not being on your chin makes it super comfortable. Breathes very well and dries fast.

11 days elk hunting in Montana and this was my go to top to wear by far. Temperatures ranged from mid 40's to low 80's and there was a LOT of hiking involved. This top breathed well when the temps rose and the sewn in hood came in handy on the chilly mornings. Compared to the core long sleeve I like that the shirt tail is longer as well. I'll definitely be getting one of these shirts for whitetail season as well. Clint W. GORE HuntingTech

I recently purchased this Hoody and all I can say is WOW! I wore it for 16 hours of hard hiking with a 70lb pack in the mountains and I can't believe it doesn't stink! It was 28°C (82° F) and the sun was hot. This Hoody has amazing breathability, wicks moisture like nothing else, dries the fastest and keeps the sun off your neck! I am a GORE HuntingTech and I get to test a lot of gear, but this item is definitely my early season and base layer staple! This Hoody was flawlessly designed. From the thumb-holes in the sleeves, to the offset neck zipper. From the long front zipper, to the chest pocket, someone was thinking! The Core Hoody will be in my system all season long! Thanks Sitka!
