Men's Kiln Zip Off Long John

When hunting out west, frost-covered mornings often turn into hot, sunny afternoons. In whitetail country, cold mornings can turn into cold sits without proper layering. Long johns are a no-brainer for both situations, but with temp swings or long distances to the stand, the hunter often finds himself overheating halfway through the morning's walk. Taking base layers off on the hill or before climbing the ladder involves taking off boots, dancing out of pants, shedding long johns and then replacing the pants and shoes. First Lite's new Zip Off Long Johns solves this problem by allowing the mountain or hardwoods hunter to shed base layers without consternation.

The Merino-X Kiln 250 Zip Off Long Johns have set a benchmark for versatile performance during mid to late-season hunts on the mountain and in the tree. These high loft, midweight bottoms are ideal for scenarios when cold weather is expected, but not necessarily sustained. Whether you're glassing for high country mule deer in October or sitting still for river bottom whitetails in November, the Kiln Zip Offs enable you to handle the changing elements with ease.

The Zip Off feature is also available in our Fuse Boot Top and Furnace Boot Top baselayers.

Fantastic

While I have not used them in the field yet I can say they are very comfortable and sized well(a bit long but not bad). The zippered leg was the feature that really sold me and they work great, no rubbing or uncomfortable feeling in waist or legs. Can’t wait to use these this fall for stand hunting.

Best base layers out there

Started using First Lite a couple years ago for whitetail & elk hunting. Had the opportunity to try out the zip off Kiln this year as a mid-weight on a ski trip. Spent several years as a ski patroller frequently stacking multiple layers under a shell jacket and pants for well below zero temps and very high winds. I really wish I had the FL base layers back then. I was worried about the zipper letting cold air in, but had zero issues. From long January winter whitetail sits to skiing in the Rockies, the FL base layers can’t be beat.

Warm layer

The clothing is quality material and it has a zipper on bottom to get boots off. The pants keep you warm on a cold February day.

Zip offs are the best!

These are amazing for the cold mornings during elk season, duck hunting and anything you need for cold weather. They don’t require you to have to take your boots, and pants completely off to de-layer! I have multiple pair and of different weights/ warmth! Would recommend these to anyone.

Warmth

I spent 5 days in the low teens and up to the mid 40’s hunting pheasant in western Kansas. When walking I wore only a light shirt and pants over these and stayed plenty warm. During walks I had to unbutton my shirt to regulate heat.
