LOVE this shirt. It would be perfect for early-season mountain hunting in the west.

I used this shirt and pant combo on my Arizona Antelope hunt in 2020 unit 5B. The weather was 50-70 degrees and the only thing I wish is that I had two sets. The moisture wicking, sun protect and scent absorption performance was outstanding. After I returned from a successful hunt I bought another set. We were in terrain that had shin high brush and it was very muddy. The mud was easily brushed off when dried on both the shirt and pants. I give the pants a 5 as well. Both dried quickly and the pants gave great protection.

The summer heat in south Texas can be a challenge. The ESW shirt is the very best of all of the "sun shirt" brands I've tried. The fabric breathes extremely well, and a slight breeze can be felt through the entire shirt. It is very comfortable and soft. The buttons are completely quiet. If you find a better, cooler shirt, I would like to know what it is. This ESW shirt is my favorite summer heat shirt.

I'm 6'3 195lbs and the XL fits great. Early season bow hunting here in SE Minnesota can be real warm. Can't wait to put this gear to use

I've been looking for a shirt to wear in hot temps for a while and am glad to have found the ESW shirt. For hot temps this shirt is the best I've found. It has vents in all the right places to keep you cool. The material is soft, comfortable and extremely quiet. The buttons are designed to make next to no noise at all. It does run a little big compared to some of my other Sitka shirts but not by much. The ESW shirt is my go to hot weather shirt.

Sitting in a stand right now in SC for the third day straight. The ESW system is a must for hot weather hunting. Lightweight, breathable, wicks moisture really well, buttons are silent. What else could you ask for. My favorite of the hot climate items for sure.

I ordered the ESW pant, shirt, hat, glove and Equinox Hoody. Ground shipping took just a few days to arrive. I was like a kid at Christmas opening the box. I”m 5’-11” and 210. The 36R pants fit well and the XL shirt and hoody fit great. I’m a first time hunter so excited to tryout my gear early October. We will see if it works for a amateur like me!

Just need the ESW mask and a belt now!

Awesome shirt! Fits great and is the perfect weight for early season. I just wish the made it in subalpine and everyday colors.

The shirt lives well up to its name. It is the ideal early season whitetail shirt.

I sat in a hard oak all this past opening weekend in the Georgia heat and not only did I blend in and avoid detection, but I was relatively cool compared to past opening weekends wearing sweatshirts or cotton tees.

The shirt is paper thin but held up well getting in and out of the stand. It's unbelievably quiet. You couldn't make a noise with it if you tried.

Take it from a sweaty guy like me, this is the coolest ESW shirt you can find.

This has just about everything that I could hope for in a light breathable ultra quiet shirt. I just wish that I could roll the sleeves up for cleaning game. Other than that one small thing a great shirt.

Incredibly comfortable and lightweight! Can't wait to put mine to use his early bow season in Missouri.

Planet Florida

If you are up for the effort, you can chase a whitetail into some of the roughest and most rugged and unforgiving country imaginable — places where humans have seldom tread and with good reason. The dense and swampy wilderness of South Florida is just such a place.
