FIRST LITE LLANO QZ 1/4 ZIP LONG SLEEVE. Take First Lite's bestselling Llano crew and add better ventilation to let hot air escape as you work hard to get to the top of the ridge—You’ve got the Llano QZ to handle the job. The Llano QZ incorporates the Shooters Cut construction for maximum freedom of movement, thumb loops to keep your shirt in place, a short collar and a quarter zip feature making this top the ultimate technical performance base layer available. Chilly morning? Zip up the collar and throw a Chama or Labrador over the top. And as the sun comes up and things get warm, shed your outer layer and loosen the zipper to create more airflow and get rid of any hot, moist air.

I hunted a total of 12 days this sept in the San Juans during elk season in this shirt. I have to say I'm thouroughly impressed with its ability to be warm when I'm not being to active and not too hot on the hikes in and out. It doesn't hold too much scent like other types of performance clothing I have used in the past and I wore it for 4-5 consecutive days without ever thinking everything in the world has to smell me by now. Thumb loops helped keep my hands warm in the high winds. Only two minor problems I have found this far is the half collar, it would be nice to have a turtle neck to it for sun protection and those really cool mornings. Other thing is the zipper, you have to use two hands to zip it up or you are going to be pulling a bit of chest hair out each zip, It needs a zipper flap on the inside of the zipper. These things definitely shouldn't be a deal breaker for anyone, it's a quality shirt that is comfortable and fits well.

I purchased this product for upcoming hunts. My most recent hunt was an antelope spot and stalk with a bow. Let me tell you this shirt is great!
I love the QZ feature for opening up the top slightly. My hunt was 93 degrees and I was comfortable, but I sure did burn my neck :|. This shirt wicked away very well also.
I highly recommend!

This is a great base layer. It is thin enough that I can wear it as an outer layer for most of the bow season here in Alabama. Very good quality. Thumb loops are very handy.

Used the LLANO twice this year, first season archery in high country and it gives you the option for warmth in the morning and has the camo to use as a shirt later in the day. It rained 5 days and the LLANO dries quickly, doesnt smell. Used it as a 2nd or 3rd layer in the ELK later season in CO and it keeps me dry, doesnst itch and easy to use 5 days in a row without oder. High quality gear.

I just got the Llano QZ. fit is as advertised. I am 6', 210 with 41-42" chest and the Large fit perfectly with just enough room to move. Went scouting this weekend and wore my under armour heat gear short sleeve shirt (thinking it would keep me cooler) for the first half of the day. what i found was the Llano kept me cooler in the heat even being long sleeved and also kept me warmer when things cooled off a bit. I highly recommend this product definitely worth the money. Can't wait to hunt in it in less than a month.

I recenly purchased the first lite llano and kanab pants from Linton outdoors. The customer service I experienced was second to none. The products I wanted were out of stock but as soon as Linton outdoors received the shipment they were on their way to me.
The product itself I have only tried on and haven't had a chance to put through the ringer. I am very happy with the fit and feel of the 100% merino wool. If it works as good as it feels then I will be purchasing more in the future.

As a Bowhunter and over 30 years of Elk, Mule deer and Whitetails, I've tried a myrid of clothing applications. Hmmm the original greenpoly pro, capalene, This was your first layer and I used ragg wool or good old wool shirts.
The poly pro would stink within a hour even if you dipped it in water and baking soda and dried it in the mountain air capalene was better at 4 hours.
Now welcome to back to the future, mother nature strikes again with the anwser wool!!
-Regulates body temp from cool to hot
-Warm when wet!!
- Compacts tightly for packing
-Dries out in "none optimal" conditions of temp or sunlight
- Natural in human scent control and compounding like synthetics!!!
-contours to body like a second skin
-wears like iron if treated with respect (ROI is very high)
-never goes out of fashion "whatever"
-generally cleans itself if it is put out in the sun after being rinsed in a spring seep at 9500' plus wow!!!
I could go on and on
Hmmm, buy some and see for yourself, like I said, I used to buy my bowhunting clothing at a ARMY Surplus store and now I'm hunting using something high tech that's been around longer than man
These guys got the "memo" on bowhunting clothing!!!!!
