The Core Short Sleeve is an ideal next-to-skin piece for hot weather hunting conditions.
Practically essential to any and every Sitka System, the Core baselayer series is designed purely for moisture wicking and comfort, utilizing 4-way stretch fabric. By literally pulling moisture off the surface of your skin, the Core garments are critical for keeping you dry from the inside out. The Core Series is made of 100% polyester bi-component technology that actively moves moisture away from the skin. To ensure a scent free hunt, the Core fabric utilizes silver encapsulated technology that kills odor-causing bacteria and is now offered in a short sleeve version.
"Evaporating perspiration is absolutely critical to maintain proper body temperature. The Core Crew short sleeve moves moisture from your body to the fabric so it can quickly evaporate. Whether on a single day hunt, a big expedition hunt, or a day trail running or mountain biking, the Core Crew is with me almost every day of the year. I’ll wear it when I want to blend in with the rest of the herd on the plane after an adventure, but still need to fly the Sitka flag."
- Sitka Athlete Kiviok Hight
The Crew Core SS works great for shed hunts, scouting trips and even at 3D shoots. The piece works as advertised!
A must have for the early season. Unreal how well this shirt will keep you dry when scouting or hunting in the heat.
Love this T. Perfect for preparing for the season in the Oklahoma heat. Perfect for dove hunting as well! Keeps you cool even on the hottest days.
This is it. The bottom of the pile. The core is your mountain t-shirt but it won't give away your position like a sleeveless flannel with a Def Leppard doo-rag. It comes in Optifade, it fits, and it wicks moisture. I like the fact it doesn't stick to my belly like ceran wrap on a wet tuna sandwich, but now I'm just bragging. I test gear for Gore but I bought this with my own money. In fact, I bought 2.
Great piece of gear, comfortable and durable. Does everything it says it will.
Love this stuff!!! I hunt in the South!!! Early season temps can reach 90+. So having a shirt to wick moister and kill odor is awesome. You can not go wrong with the Core Crew shirt. I am Not a Gore product tester. I just hunt hard. .
You are only as good as your foundation. That is true when building a house. That is true in life. And that is true in layering your hunting system. I test gear for Gore and all my systems start with this piece. Whether I am using the Core LS or SS, it makes up the foundation for my clothing in hot and cold weather. I even use it to work-out and like it so much that I bought four dozen of them to give out as promotional items for my growing business. The Core shirt is a great piece to start with for anyone just getting their Sitka collection going.
Loving sitka!Hunting here in the South East it can get warm!! Very warm! Enjoyed the ability to wear a short sleeve shirt into the stand early season! Used the long sleeve zip to layer in the evening! Have purchased the Fanatic bibs and jacket for late season! look forward to trying them out!
