Just wondering if that would help, as I don't have that issue. Then you would have the best of both "worlds"...a good hunting reticle and a good target reticle!!
On my ATACR, the illuminated reticle is amazing in the twilight hours especially in the timber when branches begin to make the black reticle hard to see. One nice thing about the standard MOAR illuminated reticle is that the entire reticle glows red. But I believe that with the MOAR-T, only the middle "+" glows red, so a much smaller red pattern for your eye to register. I have not used the MOAR-T, so I am only speculating. I would guess that just the "+" glowing red would be sufficient in the timber in low light conditions.
Based on the batteries, they will die after a day or two of being left on. But easy enough to just turn on/off whenever you want. So you do bring up a good point that the illuminated reticle would probably be the solution to the thinner reticle... I would like to try it out the MOAR-T and just get some experience with it before I made the switch. Overall I do not feel that the standard MOAR is too thick, but that is a factor of how I hunt/shoot as well.
