Men's Kiln Hoody

Midweight 250 Merino-X


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.

Great hoody that is good for all kinds of conditions. As a mid weight it seems a bit lighter than I was expecting.

Love this hoody

This was my first piece of First Lite gear and I love it. I wanted a light weight merino wool layering or stand alone hoody and the Kiln fits the bill (and me) perfectly. I wore it all throughout turkey season this year and it kept me warm on the cool mornings and was often a standalone top as the day warmed up. It is super comfortable and even when it is wet it keeps you warm.
