Best base layer! 7/31/2018

I'm actually a small guy (so small that even the smallest men's sizes are usually too large), so I often have to use youth or women's gear. I have two Artemis hoodies (fusion and cipher) that I use for hunting and I wanted to get another in a solid color for mountaineering, so I decided to try this new design with spandex. I just used it for a 3-day adventure and it's the perfect base layer. It felt great in temperatures ranging from 30 F - 80 F, kept me less sweaty than the Artemis, and fit comfortably without stretching out of shape after several days. I also appreciate the masculine color options, like conifer. It doesn't make me look feminine despite being a women's hoody. If it's ever offered in "dry earth" or "golden", I will definitely buy another one.


How it fits
It's much tighter than the Artemis, which isn't surprising with the addition of spandex. That seemed to help it function better. I have mixed feelings about the form-fitting hood. It's very warm, which is ideal, but when I had a hat underneath, it shifted around on my head when I was moving a lot.

Buy more than one! 7/29/2018

Well made and fits great. I’ve used it backpacking and fishing and am looking forward to using it to hunt in. It’s really an item I’ll use year-round. My only regret is not getting more than one! 4 stars only because I have not yet tested it in super cold weather. Coldest was 30 degrees and it kept me warm.

My All-Purpose Layer 7/3/2018

The women's Kiln hoody is the new and improved version of our discontinued Artemis hoody. The Merino-X has a 5% spandex component that makes for consistent fit no matter how many days you wear this in the field without washing. This is the first piece in my kit once temperatures cool mid-season and it stays my go-to piece throughout the Fall and Winter. I use it for everything: hunting, fishing, mountain biking and skiing.


How it fits
True to size.
