Used this with the grid fleece all during late November and early December whitetail hunting. comfortable, fit well and most importantly was warm even with a little sweat on.
Brought this on a recent 3 day trip to the Sierra Nevada's. At first I thought it might be overkill with temperatures at night getting down to 35F and daily to 60F. However, the first night we had howling winds of 50-60mph and sucking the heat out of everything. Don't know what the windchill was, but it was cold. This Henley Furnace made all the difference of a bearable night while hunkered down in my shelter without panic. Without this Henley, it may have been a different story. The warmth to weight ratio is so effecient, this is worth throwing in your pack as insurance.
Did a great job as a top layer during a trip to Colorado this past turkey season. Was the perfect amount of warm on a chilly morning, then peel it off and replace it with the chama or sawtooth during the day when it got hotter. The merino still has next-to-skin comfort and was what I would wear when getting into my bag for the night. Can't wait to bust this thing out this deer season. It will be the go to outer layer well into November here in Iowa. Super warm, super comfortable, another great piece from First Lite.
I wore this on the last day of gun season in Wisconsin. I wanted to put this to the test as it was 25 degrees with 20 mph winds when I got out to the stand. I wore an UA base layer (as the Kiln base I had ordered hadn't arrived yet), this Funace Henley, and a Silent Suede winter jacket from Cabela's.Bottom line: I didn't get cold. The Furnace kept me comfortable and warm until I dropped a doe. I got some blood on the sleeves when dressing the carcass; cold cycle in the washer and hang dry and it's clean without any shrinking. Great mid layer and super comfortable. Really happy I got this to complement the other layers.
The furnace has been a great addition to my layering system. It has simplified and cut down on the bulkiness that I once had. Instead of using a couple of layers to stay warm, I’ve been able to use the furnace, plus an outer layer and been plenty comfortable into the lower 30s. Nice job as always, First Lite.
