So warm, perfect for cold mornings. Can unzip to let air in. Cannot wait until the Sanctuary jacket comes back in stock! Must have!!
I have only worn this piece for 10 days, but it paid for its self 10 times during that time frame. Howling Kansas wind combined with single digit temperatures are no longer a problem. I paired this with the furnace base layer an stayed nice and warm. If you have a long walk to the stand I recommend packing it in and putting it on before you get in the stand or you'll sweat! Everything I have purchased from First Lite has been of exceptional quality an has made me more efficient in the field.
Purchased these last fall for stand hunting in North Dakota. Used them for bow, rifle, and muzzleloader and was very impressed. These allowed me to stay sit in the stand or on my hilltops in the frigid temps and wind a lot longer than I've been able to in the past. I wore merino long underwear and a light synthetic/poly hunting pant underneath and that was plenty warm even in single digit temps. If you have to do a fair amount of walking to get to your stand I'd recommend carrying the bibs with you or tying them to your pack because they do act like a furnace! Otherwise unzip the legs and walk slow!
6'2" 215 lbs purchased XL - fit perfectly. Good length for a tall(ish) person too.
The Sanctuary Bibs are hands down the best set of bibs I have ever used for hunting. From the intricate pattern, to the efficiently designed pockets, to the vented leg system, to the incredible warmth... This was the best purchase I have ever made for hunting gear. I will be a FL customer for life!
I have had these bibs for just over a month and I can honestly say this is truly a quality garment and glad I went this route when I replaced my late season kit. I hunt around 40-45 days each fall from Oct 1 to Dec 31st in Ontario Canada and usually switch from to my cold weather set around 5-6 degrees Celsius (41 F) and anything below, which is about 2/3rd of the archery season.
Fit: I'm 5'11"and 195-200lb and wear a 42 regular suit jacket, mostly L fitting T-shirts, and 34x32 jeans and I bought a Large sanctuary bib and they fit perfectly. I really like the the waist adjustment so you can bring them in or out depending on layering underneath and to keep them fitted. I would say I'm just under halfway on the suspenders so I would say they would work for anyone within 3-4" of my height either way. I have to be more careful buying pants and need to stay away from anything labelled "skinny' jeans as my thighs and seat are on the larger side. The bibs are great in this regard as I don't feel like I'm wearing compression shorts like I do with some other hunting brands (UA) but they still have a good close cut.
Construction: Right out of the box the feel of the material is awesome. It has a soft synthetic feel to it but not like rubbery or plastic like some Goretex items have. They will shed water but I haven't worn them in an all out downpour either so can't comment on that. The zipper layout on the bibs is awesome as well. You might think its overkill to go from one side to the other but it allows for flexibility in having airflow for the walk in. I walk up to a km to some stands and usually have the zipper open about 12" or more around the knee but it doesn't feel like they are flapping around or falling off in anyway. Pocket layout is well thought out and like the outer pocket on top of the zippered pocket design.
The weather/temps starts to have zero effect on if you are heading to the truck or if you are waiting out a couple more hours in the stand.
