Men's Furnace Quarter Zip

EXP 350 Merino-X

$155.00

Color/PatternFirst Lite Cipher

Whether you pulled a late-season elk hunt or are down to the closing bell in the treestand, First Lite's Furnace Quarter Zip is the perfect tool to help you punch that tag in cold weather. Using our Merino-X 350g EXP weight fabric, the Furnace Quarter Zip provides lofted insulation and protection from the coldest temperatures. Featuring a high collar and quarter zip for protection from the elements, and flatlock seams throughout its newly articulated fit, the Furnace Quarter Zip is the ideal layering piece over our other lightweight, next-to-skin styles.

Our Furnace EXP 350 Merino-X fabric incorporates a brushed (or fleeced) backside to our high loft, interlock knits to provide super-charged insulation without added weight. Adding this to the silent, odor-free benefits of merino wool, the Furnace merino is the hands-down choice for cold weather hunts.

The Furnace EXP 350 Merino-X is also available in a Henley and a Long John.

Great Base or Mid Layer

Keeping wool as a base layer, the Furnace is an incredible next to skin cold weather layer. Flocked merino wool makes this great against skin for low output activities (tree stands, more spotting than stalking). Perfect base for cool/dry Colorado sits.

Sizing advice

I'm 6', 205 lbs with an athletic build. I went with large size based on the comments. I wear large in all my other FL pieces. I planned on wearing the furnace as a near skin layer (on top of a merino t-shirt). Large was too big. Arm length, and especially the waist had too much material to effectively wear under my insulation layer. I exchanged for medium and now it's perfect for a base layer. So just heads up for those who want to wear this next to skin. Haven't had a chance to wear in the field yet, but like all FL gear, shirt construction is top notch.

Do - all insulation

I use my Furnace during all times of the year. In summer it works as an outer layer and in late season it's all I need under my puffy.

Too Long

I really like First Lite Base Layer Tops and Bottoms. My one complaint is that all of the tops are way too long. The sleeves are a little long, but manageable. The main length, however, feels almost like a dress. If you're packing three or four tops, the extra weight adds up, especially with the Kiln and Furnace layers. I'm having mine altered, both for fit and weight savings. This is an added cost to an already expensive purchase. Otherwise, the tops are awesome. I love the feel of them, their odor control, their warmth, the high collars and I like having the ability to pull the zippers down for ventilation. I also love the Cipher camo pattern.
