I absolutely love this jacket and has become a go to in my kit. I've taking it on backcountry trout fishing trips in the Rocky Mountains and have used it hunting whitetail sitting in a tree saddle in Wisconsin.
It's light weight, packs down, and will keep you very warm. Especially when you use a 250 merino kiln hoodie as your base layer. I also own the pants and love those just as much. Very comfortable.
I would recommend this jacket to any serious outdoorsman.
This jacket works really well on these September days when cool mornings and hot afternoons and rain showers come out of nowhere. It’s just enough to break wind and keep you dry in little storms.
I really liked this jacket. I went back and forth between this and the sawtooth hoodie. This did a little better in the wind, but wearing them both was too much. This jacket is fairly light weight, and gives good protection from the wind in my opinion. It is also quiet and easy to pack.
I used this for Elk hunting. Great water resistance, kept me warm and was very quiet when moving around. The pockets are in perfect spots and I love the no snag waterproof zippers. This paired with the pants and the vest makes a great system for cooler hunts.
For those wondering, the Catalyst does great in the rain. It's obviously not a dedicated rain jacket, but had the chance to test it out in some extended rain on a recent backpacking trip and was impressed. Steady light rain for about 2 hours and I was dry the entire time!
Insulation is about what I expected in a softshell. Not a stand-alone system on a cold day, but with a Uncompahgre vest underneath, I would definitely wear it into the low 40s.
