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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
