Sawtooth Hybrid Jacket

300g Merino-X with DWR Nylon

$168.00 USD $210.00 USD

Color/PatternFirst Lite Cipher

The Sawtooth Hybrid Jacket sets a new standard in versatility for western and treestand hunters alike. 20.5 micron, 300g Merino-X wool provides the extreme odor resistance and breathable warmth you've come to expect from First Lite Merino, while DWR coated nylon panels provide critical durability and water resistance where you need it most--the chest and shoulders. Body-mapped to preserve core body temperature, we've added 60g 37.5 synthetic insulation behind the durable nylon panels in the chest for added insulation and wind resistance. The merino back allows for greater airflow in the mid and lower back where packs and trees trunks typically cause heat and moisture to build. Worn as a light outer layer for brisk early season days or worn in conjunction with other outwear for added warmth on winter days, the Sawtooth Hybrid defines versatility in a cornerstone of the First Lite layering system.

Awesome jacket falls apart in less than a year

This is my second, and updated review. After a full turkey season with limited use, and a full deer season in GA the quality (or lack of) has been revealed. So the first few uses the seam on the wrist of the sleeve Just by the thumb hole started coming undone, it has since grew to about 2 inches, but seems to have stopped, I should have sent it back for replacement immediately but didn’t. After pretty heavy use in deer season the right and chest pocket zippers have both blown out. Now I used his jacket pretty heavily as an outer layer for cold mornings in turkey season, and for still hunting and walking to the stand. Kept me warm on active hunts with just a wool base underneath down into very windy 30s. I also relied on this as a mid layer once in the stand. This would be a 5 star review if the jacket lasted, but this thing needs a redesign. The shoulders are very tight, the stitching needs to be more robust, and the zippers need a major help.

Stitching on sleeves

I love this jacket. It’s perfect for 50’s+ but the the stitching on both sleeves have ripped at the seams on the wrist. The stitching is very weak. I sewed it back up myself but this jacket would be perfect if not for this one minor flaw.

Good product but stitching issue

I am satisfied with this product when you understand it is intended to be used by an active backpack hunter. Works great for me with backpack or harness fanny pack. As stated in numerous other reviews---the stitching on sleeve cuff has separated and I am forced to sew this back together and wait on the other sleeve to follow suit I suspect. FL apparently does not pay attention to the previous negative reviews regarding the cuff stitching or they would have corrected this situation already.

Great product, 3 hunts in stitching came undone around wrists.

I absolutely love my sawtooth jacket. Only thing keeping from 5 stars is the wrist stitching came undone (unraveling half the circumference of the wrist) after three hunts on each wrist. I didn't walk through any thick brush or catch the jacket on anything. Living in CA I've used it to hike to put out deer cams as well as a great layer for duck hunting. I stitched up both wrists myself to sturdy it up so they don't come undone again.

I wore this jacket nearly everyday I hunted this past fall. It is very versatile and was used as both an outer layer and a mid layer. I would recommend sizing up as it is a little tight in the shoulders.
