Core Lightweight Hoody [NEW]
With long sleeves and a form-fitting hood, the CORE Lightweight Hoody wicks away moisture and keeps you concealed when you’re closing in. Featuring a deep, center chest zipper for superior ventilation and a built in face mask for those quick set ups, this piece is perfect for stalking, tree stands or ground blinds.
- Bi-Component Polyester Spandex Knit
- Built in Facemask
- Half Center Zip
- 4 Way Stretch
- Low Profile Hood
- Quick Dry
The CORE Lightweight Series is the foundation of your high-exertion system. Its polyester bi-component construction is highly breathable and actively moves moisture away from the skin. The integrated face mask, center front ½ zip and 4 way stretch fabric and flat lock seams layer effortlessly and integrated thumb loops keep sleeves in place whether you’re grabbing your binos or shouldering a rifle.
A micro-grid backer assists with moisture transfer and is brushed for comfort next to skin, and permanent Polygiene® technology neutralizes odor causing bacteria, making this the one piece you won’t take off all season.
POlYGIENE® ODOR CONTROL TECHNOLOGY
Layering is a science with our CORE system of next-to-skin products. Each of the fabric weights—light, mid, and heavy—wicks away moisture to keep you warm and dry, while Polygiene® technology safely and permanently neutralizes odors using naturally antimicrobial silver salt. Build the foundation of your system with a specialized base layer designed to suit your environmental conditions.
Sweat is odorless but helps create the perfect environment for odor-causing bacteria to multiply. When sweat mixes with odor-causing bacteria on fabrics, odor results.
Polygiene uses naturally occurring silver salt (silver chloride) made from recycled silver, a highly effective antimicrobial agent, to safely inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria and fungi. However, Polygiene does not affect the natural bacterial flora of your skin. And without odor-causing bacteria, you stay fresh.

I purchased this item to wear in the hot weather. I live in deep South Texas where average temps are 85 degrees. Hunting early to late season is not really cold, wanted something to thin, light, and breathable. This is a great item for those conditions. Only issue is that i normally wear a XXL and although it fit just right i wanted some extra breathing room, so i exchanged it for a 3xl i fits just right. i use this for bow hunting and sitting on a tripod up in the trees or in a ground blind. real comfy fit. i use the ascent pants as the matching pair.

This was one of the best pieces of clothing I have ever purchased. This was definitely worth every penny. Very cool, and comfortable. When paired with something on the outside the hoody trapped a lot of heat, and became very warm.

I purchased this for a 12 day antelope and mule deer hunt in the high desert of Arizona during the last week of August through the first week of September. Intense sun and highs into the low 90's were encountered daily. To say I was pleased with this top would be an understatement. The hood and facemask provided extra concealment and gave much needed protection from the sun. The polygiene treatment worked perfectly. I brought some lightweight merino short sleeved tops along also but they mostly stayed in camp as the Core Lighweight Hoody out-performed them in all respects. My only criticism is that the cut is not quite "athletic" enough for me and wished the medium was an inch longer in torso length and had a touch more room in the shoulders (5'10" 170#, the large was much too baggy).

I have used this gear for hog hunting in Hawaii and coyote hunting in the summer. It has a great fit and is very cool in warm to hot temperatures of 80 degrees plus. Looking forward to wearing it in early season bowhunting this September in Kentucky.
