DETAILS

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.

This product is out of this world. I do some big game hunting but I primarily wear this waterfowl hunting. I hike about 2 miles into my hole and so I need something that will breathe then dry and then keep me warm after I start sitting down in the blind all day. I have tried a ridiculous number of base layers and until this one none could perform exactly like I wanted. These wick away the moisture like no product I've ever used. After hauling a 50 pound pack with all my waterfowl gear you can imagine I sweat a lot. Unlike other products once I sit down in the blind these baby's are already almost completely dry, which makes for a much more comfortable day in the blind. I have loved all my Sitka products but in terms of a peice unmatched in performance to any other company I'd have to say this base layer might be the the piece. In addition I've worn it quite a few times already and have not washed it and it doesn't smell bad. Well done Sitka.

Match this with the core heavyweight top, and you will experience the best of both worlds. Again if you hunt cold weather, this is another must have next to skin layer that not only warm, but very comfortable to wear. After several seasons of wearing, hands down the best next to skin layer period.

I'm not one to write reviews but after all the research I did and reviews read by others, I felt I needed to share my experience with Sitka. ! Conditions were 22 degrees, 15-20 mph wind and snow in the mountains of NY. I spent an entire week in these conditions and have never been so warm! I simply followed the layering system, and wow! This set up was perfect! Thank you Sitka! The bottoms kept me warm and wicked away the moisture I generated pulling my deer out of the woods!

These are a great base layer. The waffle on the inside really traps the heat. The material is also superior at wicking and drying. Great job Sitka! For Pa whitetail season this is going to be a game changer.

The weight of this fabric is nice for colder weather. They seem more comfortable and warmer to me than my old Traverse bottoms. Wick real well. Really like the fit on them. I believe I can get rid of my UA base layers now. Purchased this in the Pyrite color since I never saw a need for camo long underwear. Really like this color.
