Color/PatternFirst Lite Cipher

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.

Ah-maze-ing

I can’t get enough of the Kiln hoodie. Perfect for daily use at home and in the woods. Such a beautiful piece that works well in the garage while sweeping the floor or skinning deer. Seriously versatile in any condition. Love it!

AWESOME for layering

I film/photograph hunting for a living and need minimal amounts of gear that cover a large range of conditions. I used the hoodie all season to layer under my klamath hoodie during whitetail and under a puffy out west. The merino is soft and super durable

Perfect fit

I bought the Kiln Hoody for an elk hunt in Idaho. This quickly became my favorite piece of clothing I own. Fits perfect. Keep me warm but not too hot. Very comfortable.

Favorite piece of hunting clothing

I absolutely love my kiln hoody I never truly understand the importance of good base layers until I got this. It adds the perfect amount of warmth quick dry ability and I love the ability to use the hood under our over my beanie for extra warmth on my ears.

New favorite piece

This is the most comfortable and now my new favorite piece of hunting clothing I own. Wear it in the early season by it’s self or during the late season as a later piece. The hood is a great addition as well. I will use this all year long.

Awesome Base Layer

The Kiln hoody has been perfect for me so far. It is a very warm and comfortable base layer on cold days. It even works well as an outer layer on early season hunts in Alabama when the temperatures start out cool, but warm up as the day goes on.

So far, so good. Actually great.

I need merino base layers for scent control because deodorant makes me break out. After trying other cheaper brands, it’s easy to see why FL is more expensive. Not itchy, doesn’t smell, wicks moisture, and on and on. The extra cash is more worth it.

Arguably Too Comfortable

Great fit, absurdly comfortable, I end up wearing it anywhere and everywhere. Initially bought it as an upgraded mid-layer for all season hunting out here in Colorado, but found it comfortable and versatile enough to wear absolutely anywhere. Breathable. Cool when it has to be, warm when it needs to be. Love this hoodie.

Great Upgrade

A great upgrade over the original chama hoody. Mush better fitting and the fabirc seems to be "tighter" than the chama hoody. The fabric also seems to be smoother and more comfortable . This is my go to for early season elk hunts were the mornings are still cool and the days heat up. I almost forget that I have it on!

'm a new hunter and quickly realized the gear I had purchased just wouldnt work, I was either too cold or too bulky. So after learning about First Lite on the MeatEater podcast I decided to give it a shot. I purchased the Fuse 1/4 zip, the Kiln hoodie and the Furnace 1/4 zip and I could not be Happier! The Kiln hoodie fits perfect and is extremely comfortable. I am a big fan of the hood coming tight to my hat and being able to turn side to side with out loosing any peripheral vision. It is loose enough to be comfortable and not constantly tugging on it but tight enough that I can easily layer the other products without becoming too bulky and hindering my ability to draw back my bow. I use the Kiln Hoodie as a midlayer and easily add or remove the other layers as the weather changes as they are easily packed into a backpack. I would highly recommend this layering system to any hunter new or old. My hunting days are extended now as I dont need to cut them short when it gets too cold
