What’s your go to bow clothing for the early season- Christmas (sometimes), when it’s still hitting 80 degrees in the afternoons. Haven’t bought any new lightweight clothing since 3 years ago. Anybody have any insight or recommendations on clothing that breathes real well?

^^ Wanted to ask this myself? I sweat ALOT, and I am tired of the Browning Wasatch cargo's and button downs. Not very breathable and or moisture wicking.

Even though all are more than I would want to spend: I have looked into the KUIU Tiburon Pant, Sitka ESW Pant(New Product), Sitka Ascent Pant, and First Lite Obsidian pant.

All of these seemed to be designed for hot weather with breath ability as top priority. Anyone have experience with these products?

I wear predator adrenaline, it is a superior camo pattern in the woods and really light and breathable

Season here opens Oct 1. That could still be summer-like weather. Odds are I won't go the first week or two, but we'll see.

I wear my Bottomland turkey hunting light clothes during bow season and I have a couple of light jackets that I use in the event it gets cool. It has to be pretty dang cold before I dig out my heavy late season stuff.


Drake Ultra Light pants and shirt.
Browning Hells Canyon Light Jacket
Drake 1/4 zip pullover

Deer hunting is just something to do before turkey season.

Kuiu Tiburon's- thin and breathable
Sitka Ascent-(pre 2017 versions are thicker than the new versions). I would not recommend the older version of the ascent, they do not breathe well. New ones breath well and are thin
Sitka ESW- have not tried the new product but I have the equinox pants and they are too thick for hot weather, 70 or below for those

I do recommend the Sitka core lightweight hoody, extremely thin and breathable. newest version has the built in facemask as well

Thanks to having heat exhaustion multiple times and a heat stroke, I get hot extremely easy. I haven’t found anything that really keeps me cool getting to and from the stand, but the Red Head Stalker clothing helps.

I got some super light weight under armor pants this year (don't tell anyone, I think we are supposed to boycott them), and some cheap-o walmart shirts that were moisture wicking material. I wouldn't say I was COOL but it definitely helped with the sweating. Only problem was, any deer that walked by, I passed because I didn't want to deal with spoiled meat rofl

I wear a short sleeve t shirt to the stand and change into a long sleeve t shirt once in the stand and cooled down a little. Snake boots and thermacell are a must

Camo jeans, non insulated leather boots. I wear a regular shirt out and swap to a button up camo shirt with the slots in the back like a fishing shirt. Put the sweaty shirt in a Ziploc while I'm stand. This year I made a deal with my wife that instead on getting one hunt a weekend. I'll get 2-3 days to do nothing but hunt in a row. But only go once a month. So for bow season I'm gonna hold out for cold fronts. I'm not gonna waste my time if it 80 deg. Unless it's my last weekend that moth then I will hunt close to the water that will be a short walk.

I use first lite and Sitka.
Both are great and are game changers for warm weather.
First lite -Obsidian pant and any of their lightweight merino shirts with the long boot socks they have
Sitka I use the ascent pants and shirt in the subalpine pattern

Can’t go wrong with either.

Save some money on the Kuiu and get the Teton Pant. It's lightweight, dries fast, and won't "pill" as much. It's 2 way stretch and not 4 way stretch which means it snags a 'lil less. I've used them for 3 years and love them. Every time I hike and bike I wear them.

If it's still 80, I wear a cheap camo long sleeve t-shirt and some camo pants and a thermocell. Nothing fancy required.

I agree bowtech, my shirt I do not care because I can find a cheap nylon that breathes well, but it seems as if I can’t find a descent pair of pants that air well and don’t rip on the first briar patch that u accidentally walk against occasionally.

Last bow season I walked to the stand in gym shorts, a flora bama yacht club wifebeater tshirt, and flip flops and killed a doe around 10 am. By that late in the morning it was already well over 80 degrees, actually sniffing 90. We all had a good laugh.

I wear a leafy suit in shorts and a wicking t-shirt. Thermacell is a must
