    This is a really well-made jacket. I anticipate that I’ll really enjoy the multiple features when the Fall comes.

    Best purchase all year

    This jacket will get you through most of the season until where I live in Tn. It feels like a quality product worth every penny

    Huge upgrade from my previous suit

    I’m very pleased with the performance of my new First Lite suit after being able to use it extensively over the past couple of weeks in the varying range of weather we have in the North East for Spring turkey hunting. I’ve found it to be very comfortable all day and much quieter than my last suit (but not silent). I was initially concerned that the pants could not be ordered to an exact length but the extra length and stretch of the material made a perfect and complete fit over my boots. I ordered my usual size and it was roomy enough to add or shed layers underneath in the varying temperatures (ranged from 35F - 65F).
    Pros: very comfortable, quick dry, tear resistant, roomy flex fabric stretches over boots and permits layering, plenty of pockets. Cons: quieter but not silent, would like the ability to adjust the wrist tighter so sleeves don’t slide down over hands. Color match between pants and jacket was noticeably different but close enough(tech support said it’s normal due to different dye lots).

    Overall a big upgrade over my older suit, very satisfied.

    Great fitting jacket. Works great to wear under the vest on cool mornings and as it warms up take the vest off.

    Great and comfort. Used it in mild conditions.

    I used it turkey hunting this spring and it was great mild rain too. I can't wait to see how it works come this fall for bow season. Also looked through my trail camera and passed right by a photo of me walking by. the Specter pattern is such a great pattern.

    Good waterproof technology and wind resistance, it keeps you perfectly dry. It works very good in <0ºC temperature conditions, even during snow storms. I really like the fact that now I only have to wear this jacket in order to stay warm, whereas I had to wear multiple layers before. I also like the layout of the pockets, and the zippers truly keep water from running inside them. It's nice to have the ability to remove the hood, and your field of view is actually hardly reduced with the hood on. The camo works really good, you can get very close to animals without being noticed, it's a nice feature. Overall just an incredibly good product, as I personally would expect when buying from this brand. I haven't managed to find a negative aspect yet, but I will certainly keep putting the jacket to the test. I definitely recommend it, congrats to Fist Lite, good job!!!

    Patience Wearing thing

    Been waiting for almost two months to purchase the Whitetail Catalyst XXL in Spectre. Still not in stock. Wrote correspondence and was informed possible restock in summer of 22. That’s 4-5 more months with cash in hand and no availability.
