From our customers
This is my favorite all around top piece. It breathes well, is very durable, and keeps you warm on a brisk morning. It dries quickly and doesn't stink. The solid green looks very sharp for other outdoor activities or around town. I highly recommend trying this top.
Amazing quality - the 260 gives you the perfect in between warmth on the crisp mid to late season mornings but not too hot when it warms up.

Great base layer
I recently wore one of these on a Colorado elk hunt where temps were in the 20’s. With one layer over and an outer shell, I was warm and comfortable despite heavy winds. I liked this so much, I bought 3 more to give to my sons at Christmas.
Warm and great fitting base layer
The fit is perfect, is soft and does not itch at all. Very warm. Have used as a base layer on cold elk hunt in single digits with layers and was very comfortable.
I hunted in thx giving week end in 30 degree weather and stayed toasty warm. Very comfortable and also cool in the later hotter part of the day. Great fit, highly recommend it to anyone looking to slim down the layering system
Bought it for my second layer for archery season in ND. It worked great, thin, warm, not itchy, I definitely recommend it.
XKG merino 1/4 zip
I used this piece along with other layers from Kings for my elk hunt this year. Opening day, it was 15 degrees, snowing sideways with 20mph plus winds, and viability was less than 75 feet. As we set off, my initial thought was concerned. The conditions were more than unfavorable, and the Kings layers are rather thin and very light weight. However, Kings proved true. Despite the inclinate conditions and doubts, i stayed warm. For this reason, I intend to purchase many other items from Kings.
