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.

Feels Great

I have not wore it into the field yet, but it feels and looks great. I often have trouble with clothing being too short, especially in the arms, or too wide around the midsection. This fit great.

Lots of Pilling

Not super impressed. After afternoon out in the woods there was large and noticeable pilling in the underarms area. For the money spent, I was disappointed in the durability. However, it was quite warm and kept me dry. Fit was larger and longer than expected. I reached out to FL about the pilling which they said was normal for merino, but I never had this problem with other brands using merino. Would not recommend.

Excellent midweight layer

Overall this is a well made and comfortable midweight piece. The hood really makes the Kiln shine. First Lite's merino is the best on the market and the stretch fabric makes it very functional. Warm yet breathable and extremely comfortable. I wear this as a layer in colder weather, alone in early season or spring, and even out on the town. I can't say enough good things about this piece.
