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.
Alil snug on the sleeves but a great fit otherwise!!
Love how the back isn’t insulated! Helps when I’m backpacking!!
By far my least favorite FL piece. First the sleeves are too tight. Uncomfortably so. Second, why this piece only has insulation in the front and shoulders is baffling to say the least. There's nothing in the back or sides so you cannot wear this on it's own even in high 50 degree weather with a slight breeze without freezing to death. And it makes a poor midlayer, as I find fleece such as the Klamath, to be much warmer for it's weight. There's so many other pieces out there from completing companies that makes a piece like this that is so much warmer as a midlayer, and warm enough to be on its own for cooler weather such as the 50/60s. Hard pass. Also, why has First Lite deleted my past reviews?
I had posted a review previously but it seems to have disappeared (hmmm)...
Like others have said, this piece is very restrictive/tight in the shoulders, forearms, and armpits. I even tried a buddy's XXL and it was still tight. The uninsulated back is another weakness of this piece. I saddle hunt and that open back significantly lessens the temperatures you can use this in. Again, like others have said, it's more of an overpriced hoody than a viable jacket. Pockets are nice and the hood is great. You would think that a direct-to-consumer company would have a more palatable price tag and better sizing/quality control. If given the chance again, it'd be a hard pass from me.
