Check back when I hunt in it at least once. All good so far with fit and feel
The furnace long underwear set was outstanding on a trip to Idaho where we picked up 4 inches of snow and hiked around at 19°. Kept warm the entire weekend. In some occasions I just hiked with the top only. On some big hills where we were sweating the moisture wicked away from my body great. These are outstanding wish I bought them along time ago
Wore this on a early October white tail bow hunt in southern MN, all I needed was an under armor base layer and this shirt. Wasn’t the coldest of mornings but it was chilly enough to need something quality and this is definately that. Look forward to using this as the season gets later and colder. Definately recommend.
I have spent alot of time using mediocre gear over the last 15 years, from Walmart to field n stream. Once I purchased my first piece of first Lite is was hooked. Never really understanding this c9nce0t of a layering system. Once i added the furnace henley and furnace long johns to my kit if you will. It has changed my perception of what quality gear is. I now have the ability to have a complete kit as far as a full temp range of gear no matter the situation or time of the year. The other part I didnt understand is the longevity of the gear. I know ill have at least 15 yrs worth of gear and thats being modest. Keep the customer the center of what yall do and keep designing and thinking there is always something new to create to help go farther, hunt longer. God bless.
When buying the furnace henley, I thought I would only use it later in the season but I was wrong. The soft, quiet and scent control properties of the merino wool make it perfect for bowhunting any time of year. During early season elk, deer and spring bear, I typically pack this in my backpack and use it on its on own, or pair it with a jacket right before dark when temps start to cool. It's a lot warmer than it looks and saves me from putting on a bunch of lighter layers which is a nuisance and can restrict movement at times. I live in this thing as the season progresses and even using it ice fishing. It has the added benefit of keeping you relatively warm even when its soaked with ice cold water and doesn't get stinky after camping on the ice for a few days.
This is my favorite heavy layer that I own I will be buying more of these in the future especially when the Specter comes out. It fits perfectly and it layers well with their wick as a base for those chilly October bow hunts. This combo of a long sleeve wick crew and this Henley are my go to combo when the temps are between mid 30s to mid 40s if it is warmer than that I will wear just the Henley up to about mid 50s to low 60s. If it is colder then a good wool vest or a light jacket is all you need.
Warm, comfortable, and sizing was spot on. I went with an XL because I have longer arms, but fit great. Warm while sitting in the cold and never seem to sweat when temps bump up or when stalking. Brought it out for late season whitetail and damp, cool (40° paired with Kiln Hoody) spring gobblers. I even wear it around the house on cooler mornings. First Lite got this right.
Sometimes it's hard to know what type of product you're getting by viewing solely through the internet. I want to ensure you that the quality of this material is legit. The material is very dense, thick, and comfortable. The material reminds me of the cuff from the Sanctuary coat that First Lite offers. I would highly suggest that you purchase.
My favorite piece of hunting clothing!
Very warm and comfortable. I wear this in between a UA cold gear shirt and a solitude jacket for cold tree stand hunting. It’s great. Keeps me from having to wear a heavy bulky jacket for late season archery. Also is perfect for cold outdoor work under a hooded sweatshirt. I’d say if you are active and the temperature is above 40° you’ll be sweating. By far my favorite base layer. Sizing is spot on. No stretch issues at all.
