Wore it for 7 days elk hunting as a base layer. Kept me warm in the mornings and didn't over heat during the day. Really like the hood. Size runs a little big.

I'm amazed at how comfortable, light , but warm this is..
I've worn it as a base layer,and it has really replaced 2 layers that I have worn in the past. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

I normally wear a large and heard these run big so I ordered a medium and it fits perfect. Very comfortable piece. Been wearing it as a base layer. Love the big Q-zip and I really like the fit and style of the hood when slipped over a hat. Thumb holes are great. I have nothing bad to say about it whatsoever. Linton Outdoors is also a great company. Excellent customer service and very quick responses and detailed info on all questions I had. Will be buying more first lite like the Llano and Halstead very soon. Thank you Linton Outdoors. You are my new go to for hunting apparel.

I absolutely love this piece! It is a very versatile size that I use almost every day. I have been very pleased with how comfortable it is especially around the hood area. Very often a shirt with a hood can cause discomfort, but after many hours I have found this to not be the case. The quality is great. The cut is very generous and makes this piece versatile. I have used it as a base layer, mid and also outer layer.

I like the feel of Merino wool. It wicks nicely, and is easy to care for. When the November chill hits in Wisconsin, I put on 4 layers of First Lite clothing. The Llano, the Llano quarter zip, Chama Hoody, followed by the Labrador full zip sweater. The layering allows me full range of motion, and the material is quiet.
Also, the material sheds odors. Get it while it's hot!

My new base garment. As with all First Lite products, quality is very good, Merino is fantastic and it has held up very well during both the Archery and Rifle hunt this year. No itch and dries very quickly. Great product and service from Linton is excellent.

For reference I'm 6'01" 195 pounds muscular build and I ordered the size large. I have a 44" chest roughly.
First Lite hit a home run with this one. Fit is excellent. I bowhunt and this garment does not impede while I'm at full draw whatsoever. I love the thumb loops at the extended cuff. The fit is an athletic fit and fits snug just the way a baselayer should.
The hoodie is a nice touch for a chilly walk or sitting around glassing. It's also nice to pull over your head for extra concealment. I ordered the ASAT Camo which I love. It may look ugly to the human eye but it's effective as hell with the animals not seeing you and that is the only thing I am concerned with. Wool is the only way to go. I can wear this garment for 4-5 days without worrying about stinking unlike synthetic fabrics. I own numerous firstlite wool garments and they are all very well made.

This shirt is awesome, there is no other way to put it. I wore this shirt everyday in the field so far this year from 95 degrees opening weekend to 45 and blowing rain this past Sunday and it has worked perfect the whole time. Even in the heat I was never too warm and after 5 hours in pouring rain and being soaked through for 3 of them, I was warm the whole time despite being wet.
I can't say enough how much I like the First Lite Merino, it works as well as claimed which not a lot of products these day can say!
I would definitely buy another one of these (most likely will) and would recommend for anyone.

This Chama Hoody at first felt a bit thin (slightly thicker than the Llano) so I was concerned about its performance. The Chama is now my favorite all around top. The hood portion helps reduce your heat loss very well and like the balaclava it does not seem to effect your hearing.
I am buying three more for my hunting buddies!

Stretchable material similar to the the llano, except just barely thicker. Hood should work well and the length on the 2XL was good. I always have to get the FL shirts one size larger to fit decent. Disappointed with the thickness but the llanos are awesome so this will be fine.
