This is my go-to top layer on a cooler, windy day and a base layer on those really cold morning hunts and hikes. I have a long torso and women’s fits are typically short waisted, this is not! Arm length is great and I almost always have the thumb holes on. Washes well and has held up on some pretty rough outings. Just hiked two back to back 14ers in it and it stayed on through 75 degrees and sunny down to 45 degrees and strong wind. Definitely an investment piece.
Fit exactly as the sizing outlined. I love that the arms are actually long enough to utilize the thumb holes and the torso is long enough as well. Super comfy
This merino base layer is soft, breathable and not scratchy at all. It works perfectly as a stand alone shirt in warmer temperatures and also holds warmth with another layer on top in cold windy weather. I was also very pleased with the length, it is long enough to stay tucked in my pants and that alone is enough reason for me to buy another one. This piece will always be in my pack. Thanks for a great product!
I purchased a small as that’s what my catalyst is, but the kyln fits a little more snug. Return and exchange was super easy and quick. Once my medium showed up, I haven’t stopped wearing it. It’s not to light, and not to heavy. The merino wool really keeps you warm and comfortable. Definitely will be my go to during our early season hunting. For now I’m stuck wearing it around the house during this quarantine time.
My husband has been wearing First Lite for the last year and I decided to try it for myself. I am not disappointed. My usual size of medium fit snug but comfortable though I chose a large to allow for wear as a base layer and a single layer around the house and on errands without being too snug. It is warm without making me sweat and is very soft. The hood fits well and actually covers my head and stays on unlike other hoods. The thumb holes are an added bonus. I highly recommend the Kiln Hoodie.
