POlYGIENE® ODOR CONTROL TECHNOLOGY
Layering is a science with SITKA's CORE system of next-to-skin products. Each of the fabric weights—light, mid, and heavy—wicks away moisture to keep you warm and dry, while Polygiene® technology safely and permanently neutralizes odors using naturally antimicrobial silver salt. Build the foundation of your system with a specialized base layer designed to suit your environmental conditions.
Sweat is odorless but helps create the perfect environment for odor-causing bacteria to multiply. When sweat mixes with odor-causing bacteria on fabrics, odor results.
Polygiene uses naturally occurring silver salt (silver chloride) made from recycled silver, a highly effective antimicrobial agent, to safely inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria and fungi. However, Polygiene does not affect the natural bacterial flora of your skin. And without odor-causing bacteria, you stay fresh.

Hunters are in need of a foundational next-to-skin piece that can span temperature variations throughout the seasons in order to regulate heat and sweat. Our approach was to build a base layer that, when worn, feels like you were hunting with nothing on. We used durable polyester bi-component construction with Polygiene® Odor Control Technology to deliver breathability, moisture management, and odor control. This lightweight crew can be worn as a standalone outerwear piece or layered into your system for all-season hunting.
