From September elk to January mallards, the Kiln Midweight 250 Merino-X Hoody is our new do-it-all hooded base layer. The successor to our best-selling Chama Hoody, this piece is constructed of Merino-X for improved structure and resistance to tears and bagging. Perhaps the most versatile base layer component within the First Lite layering system, the Kiln simply cannot be beat as a do-it-all top for any outdoor enthusiast. With its 250 gram Merino-X fabric, this piece can be either your first or second layer and will keep you comfortable and odor free from September through May.

The Kiln 250 is also available in a men's quarter zip and crew.

Excellent midweight layer

Overall this is a well made and comfortable midweight piece. The hood really makes the Kiln shine. First Lite's merino is the best on the market and the stretch fabric makes it very functional. Warm yet breathable and extremely comfortable. I wear this as a layer in colder weather, alone in early season or spring, and even out on the town. I can't say enough good things about this piece.

Nice piece

Good piece for 70’s- 20’s if layered correctly. Breaths well, comfortable fit, as others have said if it gets wet from rain or sweat, it dries slowly, but in warm weather that can be a good thing. I use as a single layer in warmer weather or mid layer in colder weather.

Heavy and wet

Fit is ok. A little baggy for a midlayer. It’s got a great soft feel. Wicks moisture, but then retains it. After a solid uphill climb, I’m soaked and get to spend the rest of the day with a wet layer. I live in the mountain west (dry) and this takes over a day to dry out. Obviously much heavier when wet. A liability to take into the field.

flexible and warm

I like how flexible the material is. i was able to use a non-camo jacket underneath and put this on the outside for a white tail hunt this november and never felt tight or restrained. a great mid-layer clothing.

Excellent hoodie!

This hoodie is super comfortable and quiet! This season I wore it every day, lots of hiking and sweating and the merino wool really never got smelly at all. Hiked with a long sleeve base layer under it in mid to upper 40 degree weather with a constant drizzle, ended up wet but kept me warm. If I knew I was going to be wet I would have put my SEAK stormtight jacket over it instead of leaving it behind, but all in all I was impressed with how warm it kept me.
