In Stock & Ready to Ship

From September elk to January mallards, the Kiln Midweight 250 Merino-X Hoody is our 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 hunter or outdoor enthusiast. With its 250 gram Merino-X fabric, this piece can be either your first or second layer and will keep you warm, comfortable, and odor free from September through May.

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

Great shirt

Great shirt. Really soft and stretchy. Nice athletic cut. I'm skinny and this is one of the few shirts I've found that a medium actually fits well. Sleeves are good and long so you're not stretching the shirt too much with the thumb holes. My torso is a bit longer than usual so in a perfect world the shirt would be a tad longer, but it's not too short like most shirts that aren't a tall size. The hood definitely feels better with a hat on, it comes down on your forehead farther than a regular hood. Obviously by design, just different.

I'll definitely end up with another at some point.

Insanely Comfortable

Ordered medium before and if I was still as 165lbs it would have fit arms and gut perfectly. Since those days are long gone I exchanged for Large and like the fit more, sleeves longer but comfortable enough to manage.

Kiln Hoody

Perfect fit and feel. While light it still keeps you comfortable and breathes well. Just had to use the hood yesterday and was completely surprised at the ability to block the wind.

Best baselayer for any outdoor activity

feels fleece soft, but moves with you- unrestrictive and warm as can be but wicks perspiration like a synthetic. I am ordering another one as soon as this review is finished!

Merino Wool is the best

I rarely if ever review but this FL product is great. While I would have wished for a heavier weight of material given the "Kiln Hoody" name, it is a nice piece. Fits well, stays very scent free after many days of use and it wicks so well.

Have only worn once but it feels awesome. Went archery elk hunting this year for the first time in 25 years and had the kiln 1/2 zip and it was awesome but a little warm during the day. This will be perfect!

Great 1st piece

Wore the kiln hoody for a cool evening bow hunt and the garment worked great. Very quite and felt very comfortable as a single layer.
