Men's Kiln Hoody

Midweight 250 Merino-X

$125.00 USD

Color/PatternFirst Lite Cipher

From September elk to January mallards, the Kiln Midweight 250 Merino-X Hoody is our new 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 outdoor enthusiast. With its 250 gram Merino-X fabric, this piece can be either your first or second layer and will keep you comfortable and odor free from September through May.

The Kiln 250 is also available in a men's quarter zip and crew.

This is hands down my favorite piece of first lite gear. The versatility on it is unmatched. You can wear it by itself in warm weather or with layers under it in cool weather. The Chama hoody was awesome, this one is even better. Regardless of where you live, this is THE top to have in the First Lite line up.

Pro tip: In really cold weather, throw a hand/foot warmer in the chest pocket. The heat directly on your heart really raises your core temp.

Favorite warming layer

I wear this thing all the time and it is very comfortable and warm. Doesn't do much for the wind, for obvious reasons, so definitely combine with an outer layer. That said I will probably get another one of these.

Runs a hair long but very comfy and light. But it will also keep me warm. Good job First Lite

Fit Comments: I should have purchased a medium. This fits as it should. I like my hunting clothes to fit a little closer to the body. Sleeves are plenty long!

Super comfortable and quiet.

This hoody is a must have for white tail hunting. I have been wearing this with a fuse crew underneath and i have been good to go from the high 70s down to the high 40s.

Favorite FL Piece

This was my first piece of First Lite merino wool clothing, and it is still my favorite piece. So far, I've generally worn this hoody over the wick crew, and it's perfect. I've also used the hood a lot more than I ever thought I would as it fits perfectly, cuts down on wind chill and doesn't restrict vision. If you're thinking about it, just order this hoody in the same size as you normally would, and you won't be disappointed.
