Last season I found myself out in December in the brutal cold of New York after a snow storm and realized how badly I needed new gear. After a long search I finally landed on this jacket, unfortunately it was out of stock in my size so had to wait all the way to June to finally get my hands on it but it was absolutely worth the wait. Took it out of the box and it feels so lightweight and isn't bulky at all. I put it on along with the bibs and was immediately sweating inside my apartment. Obviously getting them in June I'll have to wait to give you a review of how they stand up to the elements but so far they have far exceeded my expectations. Very lightweight, real quiet fabric, and I can only imagine my layering when wearing this bad boy will be minimal even late in the New York season
I haven't tried this in the field yet as it is summer and it was purchased for October moose and November deer in Ontario, but I am extremely pleased with this jacket and the matching pants. Very lightweight and feels extremely warm. Can't wait for fall!
I have been using different set ups for cold weather my whole life and when it gets cold you are either 6 layers deep or wearing to heavy of a base layer for walking etc. I finally decided that as I get older why am I not hunting because I get cold and typically not as much pressure in the later season so you can enjoy it if you are dressed properly. I took the plunge and decided if I didn't like it I could return it. We had some cold days and the Sanctuary Jacket and bibs will keep you on stand for as long as you want. Don't walk in with jacket on but you do not need hardly anything under this layer. I was looking forward to cold weather to use this outfit. Camo is awesome, quiet, and just all around one of the best decisions I have made when it comes to hunting clothing. You will not be disappointed . I am glad I found First Lite they have helped me dress for all occasions.
I've never been more comfortable wearing the Jacket and Bib set. Wore both during NY and PA rifle season and late archery. Remained absolutely comfortable during both seasons. Even wore the combo on Lake Ontario pulling in Walleye. Again, stayed comfortable. On every occasion I packed the Jacket in and out while I layered a pair of shorts and long underwear below the bibs.
I absolutely love this jacket but I have two major flaws with it . The stitching in places is not very robust in places. Any tugging done by branches or getting it caught on the stand can easily damage it. Also I love the idea behind them making the jacket bigger for layering but with modern layer systems I don’t need that much space inside the jacket. I love the cuffs their a perfect fit but they contradict the purpose of the bigger body portion.
