I can’t say enough positive things about the Klin. It’s super comfortable and the most versatile piece of gear that I own. From early season bow hunts all the way through spring turkey, this piece always has a place in my kit.
Used the Kiln Hoody for a Colorado elk hunt the kiln made a perfect mid layer. The kiln fits true to size and is durable it is great for cool/cold weather.
I was in the market for a good mid-layer to wear over my thermals, but under a thicker sweatshirt or flannel outer layer and this hoodie is perfect for that. Its really thin but it helps keep that heat in big time. I find that even if I sweat on my way to the tree stand, the merino wool still keeps my core warm even after sitting down and cooling off. The quarter zip makes it easy to pull on and off and the little chest pocket is convenient for a handwarmer or two. The hood is my favorite aspect of this shirt though, it is tight fitting and moves with your head in all directions. I have been wearing a Furnace beanie and pull the hood from the Kiln over it and the heat just stays bottled in. I am a shorter/stocky guy, so I went with the Medium and its a good close fit with plenty of flex, silence, and maneuverability .
Just picked this up for a November Colorado public land hunt and wore this every day. Perfect for the below freezing mornings under a light jacket, but didn’t overheat me in the afternoon after the sun came up. My only concern was the shirt runs a little large, and I probably should’ve ordered a large instead of extra-large shirt, but that’s on me. Thank you again first lite for another awesome product.
Fit and color was good. I used this on my mule deer hunt in Nevada. After two washes the shirt already has noticeably fading. I would not buy again. Save your money and buy KUIU.
