Sawtooth Hybrid Jacket

300g Merino-X with DWR Nylon


Color/PatternFirst Lite Cipher

The Sawtooth Hybrid Jacket sets a new standard in versatility for western and treestand hunters alike. 19.5 micron, 300g pure Merino 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.

    Great Jacket... a tad small though.

    Love this jacket... however it does run a little small. Everything I wear in First Lite has been a perfect fit in size Medium and this one runs maybe a half size smaller. If I could do it over again I would have returned it and sprung for the Large, but its still great gear no doubt about it.

    Quickly becoming my favorite First Lite piece--and that is a freaking high bar

    The Sawtooth Hybrid Jacket is simply fantastic for the mobile hunter. I've used it elk hunting through October snowstorms in Colorado and spring turkey and bear hunting in Idaho. Can't wait to test it out during September archery elk. I am a HUGE Chama fan, but this piece is quickly catching up. The heat mapping really works, I love the full zip, the thumbholes for layering, and the fitted hood sets it apart from anything else I own. It is simply awesome, all the way around, and worth every hard-earned penny.

    Best purchase made

    One of the best purchases I made. I use it for tree stand and upland hunting. It is so versatile. I used it for late season pheasant hunting in Suffolk County and it was perfect. I layered it with the 350X merino base layer. I didn't need anything else. I highly recommend it.

    Fit Comments: Wish the length in the front was about an inch longer, but overall I am pleased with the fit.
    Love this jacket

    This is the first high-end camo/hunting clothing I have owned and you can definitely tell a difference. Super comfortable and extremely versatile. Great for an outer layer in warmer weather or a mid-layer on those colder days. Used for both tree stand sitting and hitting the mountains.

    Location: Idaho
    Primary Use: Spot & Stalk
    Fit Comments: I sized up thinking it would be nice to be able to add an extra layer or 2 for cooler temps, but ultimately a bad decision. I tried a few times to shrink it, but didn't get nearly a shrunken as I'd hoped. I should've ordered a large, instead of extra large.
    Great Mid-Season Layer

    Really liked this layer for early-mid October hunts. It wicked away rain drops rather well, and the merino portions dried quickly when wet. This layer probably wouldn't be as suitable for treestand use, since the merino is very breathable. but for mobile/spot and stalk hunts this is a really good layer.
