Men's Furnace Quarter Zip

EXP 350 Merino-X


Color/PatternFirst Lite Cipher

Whether you pulled a late-season elk hunt or are down to the closing bell in the treestand, First Lite's Furnace Quarter Zip is the perfect tool to help you punch that tag in cold weather. Using our Merino-X 350g EXP weight fabric, the Furnace Quarter Zip provides lofted insulation and protection from the coldest temperatures. Featuring a high collar and quarter zip for protection from the elements, and flatlock seams throughout its newly articulated fit, the Furnace Quarter Zip is the ideal layering piece over our other lightweight, next-to-skin styles.

Our Furnace EXP 350 Merino-X fabric incorporates a brushed (or fleeced) backside to our high loft, interlock knits to provide super-charged insulation without added weight. Adding this to the silent, odor-free benefits of merino wool, the Furnace merino is the hands-down choice for cold weather hunts.

The Furnace EXP 350 Merino-X is also available in a Henley and a Long John.

*More inventory expected in early summer.

Too Long

I really like First Lite Base Layer Tops and Bottoms. My one complaint is that all of the tops are way too long. The sleeves are a little long, but manageable. The main length, however, feels almost like a dress. If you're packing three or four tops, the extra weight adds up, especially with the Kiln and Furnace layers. I'm having mine altered, both for fit and weight savings. This is an added cost to an already expensive purchase. Otherwise, the tops are awesome. I love the feel of them, their odor control, their warmth, the high collars and I like having the ability to pull the zippers down for ventilation. I also love the Cipher camo pattern.

Great late season merino

The Furnace is great late-season merino, particularly for cold sits in the December and January tree stand. I've used it effectively with layering into the single digits It is super warm, so is not something I would recommend for a lot of hiking--there is lighter-weight merino for that--but for more sessile hunts, this is just the trick, particularly underneath some First Lite outer gear. Worth the money-as is everything at First Lite.

One of my favorite pieces of gear

Extremely nice wool. Warm and incredibly soft. I gave 4 stars because it has a boxier cut than my other FL gear. The waste on the seem to flare a bit more than others. Even still, its one of my favorite pieces of gear. Extremely versatile for anything below 35.

Fit Comments: True to size fit with what seems to be a more athletic cut. Lots of length in the body to keep the top tucked in.
Excellent cold weather base.

Bought the quarter zip and long John in October in preparation for November deer season. The temperatures were below zero every day I was out, but I was very warm with this as my base. I have never been warmer than I have been this year. Perfect for cold November sits in Alberta.Perfect fit for me, not too baggy and not too tight. Moves well with your body and no seams sitting in any unpleasant areas. The thumb holes in the sleeves are great for keeping them from bunching under other layers and provide a little extra warmth on your hands. Very soft comfortable merino fabric. Well done First Lite.
