From our customers
This is my go-to piece. The natural odor control of merino wool is amazing! Crazy to me how merino wool keeps you warm in the cold and cool in the heat!
This piece has worked great all year from antelope to high country elk hunting. Great foundation for the additional layers needed.
- elk hunt
- base layer
I like It!
I like the mountain shadow camo pattern and it works great with all my other mountain shadow clothing. I was worried it would itch while wearing due to it being made of wool, but the Merino wool felt great and did not itch at all. Kept warm in cool mornings cool in the Az afternoons.
XKG FOUNDATION 260 Merino Mountain Shadow
Shirt fits great even has a little extra room and I am a big fat boy everything else I have to order a 4XL and this shirt is light weight but far warmer than one would expect great for early fall hunting in the mountains
Bring on the cold weather!
Really excited for a sandhill crane hunt in a few weeks where I'll be using this piece.
it is the BEST!!
Used it during this fall’s elk hunts. It is great. Does not hold bad scent. Comfortable in different temperatures. Fits well. The pocket holds my calls and I can operate the zipper one handed… The only thing that could be better in 2 pockets ..I shoot left handed and my right hand holds the bow…and it is a little tough to get into the pocket on the left side with my left hand. I will be buying more…the camo pattern really blends in. Great Gear and great folks
XKG Foundation 260 Merino 1/4 Zip
So far, I am loving the XKG Foundation 260 Merino 1/4 Zip shirt. It keeps me warm in cold temperatures and is great at wicking sweat off of me during long hikes and packouts. The material is very comfortable. I sleep with it on when conditions get really cold, and my sleeping bag isn't enough to keep me comfortable. Another nice feature is the thumb holes at the end of the sleeve. It keeps the shirt from bunching up when I add an additional layer.
