The Obsidian Merino Pants
"After reading through hundreds of reviews, comparing brands and talking to a customer service representative, I decided to purchase the Obsidian Merino Pant and I couldn’t be more pleased! The fit of these pants is great! They are so comfortable and have just the right amount of stretch. They are incredibly quite as well. I have been impressed with how I don’t get hot during the day, but I stay warm when the sun starts going down and it cools off. As far as sizing goes, I was right in between a large and xl. I spoke with a customer service representative and he was so helpful. He informed me that the pants have some stretch and are a little bit baggier, so since I was in between sizes, it would be best if I sized down, and he was 100% correct! The fit is perfect. All in all. I would HIGHLY recommend these pants and couldn’t be more pleased with them!! I look forward to purchasing more gear from First Lite."Shop Men'sShop Women's
Alright so I was a little hesitant to spend a bunch of money on underpants... I mean no offense to underpants but it’s not normally something on the “drool over gear list” after listening to “Cal’s Week in Review podcast” and having a big 5 day high mountain buck/black bear hunt coming up I decided to bight the bullet. Having Cal’s high praise for this garment ringing in my ear, I figured what the heck.
I’m originally from Southern California. Why I mention this is to illustrate the weight of the word I’m about to use to describe this product.. it has many meanings, and can be used for many thing but from 1 to 10 on the scale of “dude” these long handles rank a strong 11! I’m not going on a hunt without these things in my pack..... in summary...... “Dude!” Get yourself a pare.. by the by the hunt was amazing and I tagged my first black bear a Respectable 175lb male. Thanks guys!
I have worn these a few times on scouting trips for whitetail and I’ve been very impressed. They’ve held up to a lot of abuse from thick brush and briars. They won’t protect you from the briars but held up beyond my expectations. What makes that more impressive is they feel like you’re wearing sweat pants! These will be a good versatile addition that can be involved in a nice late season layering system. Very satisfied with these and will be back for more!
I got 2 of these shirts for farm work/chores. This shirt has a great fit, dries fast, and has a bit of stretch to it for increased mobility. Also noticed it doesn’t stain and I’ve gotten blood on my gray one several times. If it will stand up to what I’ve put it through at the farm it will stand up to anything!
These pants fit amazing, are tough as nails, and extremely functional. Maybe my favorite first lite product, so just get a pair!
I’ve worn this jacket for farm work to turkey hunting. Barbed wire, buck brush, thorn bushes it’s been through it all and not a tear anywhere! The dwr finish is great for wet mornings or light rain. The athletic cut makes this jacket great for about anything.
This is a great light weight pullover for warmer weather (50+). The dwr finish is great when there is a light rain or morning dew. Training dogs in the mornings on a windy day this is always my go to!
I picked up this shirt in gray earlier this year as I was scouting a lot for some upcoming hunts. I love this shirt layered under my long sleeve wick type shirts. The shirt is comfortable, and breathes really well. I recently bought a second one and they are my favorite under shirts for hunting / outdoor activities. If you are considering this shirt, you won't regret it!
I love this puffy. My #1 go to jacket. Incredibly warm and comfortable also packable. I also find this jacket very versatile in different weather situations when Montana likes to throw curve balls. Thanks First Lite for supporting us troops. Will continue to buy your gear.
