Men's Kiln Zip Off Long John

MIDWEIGHT 250 MERINO-X

$125.00 USD

Color/PatternFirst Lite Fusion

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.

I thought I knew what love was.... I was wrong

Every time I slip into these buttery smooth long Johns my Double barrel twins look up at me glistening with approval. The level of pure love I have for these long Johns is so deep and profound it helped me understand the Bible better. Imagine the softest fleece blanket you’ve ever felt and the silkiest spandex material mixed together and pulled fresh from your grandmas dryer. That’s what these long Johns are. The zipper on the side that the claim is for easy removal when hunting’s true purpose is that when your wife sees you in these stud makers she’s gonna need quick access. If your looking to change your life for the better there is no investment that could compare to these bad boys. Buying these at the bargain of a price they’re at today would be like buying Bitcoin back in 2009. Dont miss out gentlemen, do yourselves a favor and pick up a pair today.

Well thought-out product

The kiln bottoms are incredibly useful with the full-length zippers. Gone are the days where you would have to contemplate, "do I sweat my $#@! off" vs time to get naked. It's no longer a hassle to layer your bottoms. As far as the layer itself, it is incredibly warm for all-day hunts and trips down into the 20's. I recently used this on a backcountry hunting/camping trip in northern PA with rain,sleet, and snow. And even when wet these retained their ability to create warmth well. I've also used them waterfowl hunting under my bibs and waders for the late season. That is where my only critique lies. In order for this product to be even more versatile, I think they could stand to benefit from adding a foot strap, maybe a removable one to use at the individual's discretion. I love using them with waders but sometimes (as with all clothing, this issue is no fault of first lite's solid gear) unless taped down they can ride up. Again, this is an amazing product, and would recommend it to anyone. I only have that single critique for future development.

super versatile

I film/photograph hunting for a living and need minimal amounts of gear that cover a large range of conditions. Being from the south east, these bottoms were killer for early mornings glassing out west when i knew I could Zip them off before we made an approach on an animal. I also use them as a layering piece during whitetail season.

VERY COMFORTABLE AND CONVENIENT

Best long johns I've ever owned. Incredibly comfortable and well built. The zippers seem very durable and they make a quick change easy on the go. Use them here in the late fall/winter southwest desert when its 20 in the morning and 60 midday where they are a must have. Run true to size.

Fantastic!

What a brilliant product! I’m a 34x36 and they fit perfectly. Extremely warm yet easy to shed when you warm up. The zippers aren’t noticeable under pants or wearing a pack. You can literally take them off in 30 seconds with your boots on! I love the Velcro tabs that not only pad your waist from the zippers, but also hold the waist together while you line up the zippers to put them back on (they zip from the top down). I’m telling everyone I know how great they are. I will likely end up with the 3/4 length zip off fuse next. I have not had the zippers slide on me in use.

And why not a 3/4 length zip off kiln?!

Best long johns I have Ever owned!

These long johns are perfect for western hunting. I have used them all season long, from Mountain goat to mule deer. The ease of taking them off when you get too hot is a game changer. No more annoyance of having to take off your boots to take off layers. I highly recommend these to anyone looking for extra layers in the cold morning, but want to take them off during the hot part of the day.

Not just for huntin

So I’m an Arborist by trade. These things are a life saver for discreet removal mid morning. I’m usually in a residential setting so stripping down in someone’s backyard is not an option. I put them on if it’s 30 or below when I wake up and take them off about 50. I can’t believe I’ve spent 15 years working outside without them. I’m sure they’ll be great under my waders as well. Love them.

Really convenient piece. Perfect for situations where you have cold mornings but hiking will make you heat up quickly. Zipping these long johns off while hiking is quick and convenient, then you can easily zip them back on if you start to get cold at your glassing spot.

Best thermals I’ve ever worn

These are the best thermals I’ve ever owned/ worn the ease of zipping them off when the temps rise is a game changer. Mid October hunting in Idaho these things are a must
