I bought this jacket at the PA outdoors show and having been living in it since! I’m a female 6ft 154 athletic build - I chose the men’s over the women’s because I have a long torso and the men’s brooks had the length I need. I’ve worn it under my sanctuary jacket on really cold days and layered it under my fly fishing rain coat while fishing. This thing is like a furnace!!! Also super light weight and VERY easy to pack up into a small bag when you’re not using it. Highly recommend if you want maximum warmth in minimal size
This was the 2nd piece of gear I've purchased from First Lite and it was WORTH it! I immediately put it to the test hunting several days in the north Idaho panhandle during some sub 20 degree tree stand sits and mountain hunts. I was honestly impressed with how warm i was in this thin, extremely packable outer layer. I brought it with me to Kodiak island, AK in Dec 2019 and it performed fairly well in the 30 degree/20+mph winds. I went thru alot of thick underbrush and I'm surprised don't have any snags/tears in it yet.
I love this jacket. I can’t believe how warm it is for how light it is. Size up for a good fit. The XL for me perfect. Shooters cut feels awesome no binding anywhere in the jacket. 100 percent recommend this jacket.
Probably the best damn jacket I own. I've stood outside in 20 degree weather with nothing more than a t-shirt on underneath, and have been comfortable. I wear it around town, and out and about as well. I'll probably end up having to buy another so that I can dedicate one to my hunting gear, and have one for hanging out. I wouldn't wear it in a downpour without a shell over it, but it is resistant to snow and water for a good while. It works well in light precipitation.
