The kiln quarter zip is a great layering piece for any hunting or skiing system. The thumb holes keeps the quarter zip at your hands and keep the materials from bunching up. I have had the kiln quarter zip for 2 season used approximately 50 days a year. No rips or tears in the material from excess use.
I recently purchased this piece for my Utah rifle deer hunt. This top worked flawless and kept me as comfortable as any piece of clothing I own. First Lites merino is the best I’ve ever worn and their tops are soft and feel great on the skin, but are also tough and they need to be for how I hunt. I can’t say enough about how much I like this piece
It’s warm, it’s soft, and it fits great. This might be my favorite layer. I have 3 of them. They don’t itch and they don’t hold stink after a hunt the way synthetic layers do. I can’t recommend the kiln layers enough. I mostly wear them next to skin but sometimes as a mid layer if it is really cold.
This shirt is the BOMB. I wear it has a next to skin base layer in temps as high as 60-65 and well down in the teens. It breathes great, drys quickly and most importantly keeps my body temp comfortable.
I bought this as a mid-layer between my Wick Hoody and Puffy Jacket, and it couldn't be more perfect for the task! The quarter-zip makes it easy to pull on and off over other layers, and the fit is just the right amount of snug to hold in the body heat. For early season hunting, I didn't wear it too much until the nighttime temps dipped into the low 30s, and then it became a lifesaver inside my sleeping bag. Same quality merino you expect from First Lite, and didn't smell at all after a week in the backcountry.
