Now Available: The Obsidian Foundry
As you prepare for early season sits in a tree stand, hunting the Elk Rut in September, or getting out for Mule Deer in the waning warmth of October, you can rest assured First Lite has your pants covered. The new Obsidian Foundry pant continues to incorporate field-tested and approved ripstop merino into the outerwear's main body to better regulate temperature, remain silent when moving, and resist the build-up of odor-creating bacteria. Key friction zones through the Seat, Crotch Gusset, and Lower Leg have been constructed with durable stretch nylon to provide snag and tear resistance where it is needed most and offer moisture protection through DWR treatment.Shop Now

I have had the jacket for a little over a year and it has held up very well. My main purpose was to use it to block wind upland hunting in SD. It did a great job of that and much more. I could wear it on warmer days and not get overheated. I used it all through hunting season and into late season. In the cold season (low teens-negative), I would wear a base layer, warm sweatshirt and then the jacket. This worked out great for bird hunting. It kept the wind at bay and it didn't restrict movement to bad. The jacket itself fits pretty snug but has great stretch. Also a great jacket for everyday use. The jacket does make a little noise when moving but nothing terrible. Holds up well to briars and barb wire fence as well. Good jacket
Ordered the items as a solid base layer, and warm weather hunts. Fits great, with good ventilation to wick the sweat off. Only part I’m not a huge fan of is how tight the hood is when sliding it over my head. Once it’s on however it fits perfectly over whatever hat I’m wearing. Overall a solid product
I bought these in the fall knowing I’d need them in the winter for chukar and wolf hunting. I was on the fence about spending this much on gaiters but they’ve been more than worth it. I’ve hiked hard with these on and haven’t noticed any wear. My feet are always dry now and I don’t have to worry about the bottoms of my pants being soaked anymore.
If you're looking for an upgraded balaclava to whatever you're currently rocking, then this will almost certainly do the trick. If you're looking to buy your first, then you're probably going to be spoiled and never know the real struggle for the rest of us that sat face-frozen in a tree stand at 19F wondering what we were doing wrong. It's not too heavy that it can't be used (camo pattern) in Spring Gobbler Season but with the appropriate headgear, it can be used in the colder months too. It fits my head perfectly (I like to think I've got a pretty average-sized head) and is easy to clean.
These pants have to be some of the most versatile pieces of clothing that someone can buy. Whether you're packing out or heading into the brush for a single-day hunt, these guys are almost always on me or in my bag. They're extremely comfortable and can act as an extra layer in those colder months but they're also the protection you need in the summer as well. I'll wear them trudging through the woods or just sitting out by a fire planning out the next day's hunt. I have them in multiple colors and patterns and couldn't recommend a better product to have, especially for someone that might be new to First Lite.
