Men's Catalyst Soft Shell Jacket

2 Layer Silent Softshell

$240.00 USD

Color/PatternFirst Lite Cipher

From the treestand to the tundra, the Men's Catalyst Soft Shell Jacket changes the paradigm of technical hunting softshell jackets. Silent, breathable, insulating, and engineered to stretch and move with you, the Catalyst changes what is possible in a softshell jacket. The revolutionary, 2-layer construction creates a jacket that is warm and breathable while also being lightweight and completely silent.

Interior 37.5 fleece lining works to optimize your body temperature while the brushed, durable exterior is ultra-silent while fending off moisture through our advanced DWR.

The result is an ultra-versatile jacket that performs as well in the stand as it does in the backcountry. Whether you are looking for silent warmth sitting for whitetails during the rut or hoofing it through knee-deep snow on the trail of late season elk, the Catalyst softshell system will help you get it done.

The Catalyst is also available in a Men's Pant.

Southern IL stand hunt

replaced my scentblocker alpha suit with the Catalyst this year and couldn’t be happier! The feature I love the most is the hood, you have so much more visibility over other manufacturers. I’m currently sitting in the stand writing this so what better time to do a review. It’s 41 with a 8 mph on Oct 19th, I have a base, mid and insulating weight merino wool layers on and I’m comfortable. It’s cool feeling out but I’m not cold and the wind has not penetrated the outer catalyst jacket and pants. Im 6’5” 220 lbs and originally went with an XL but when I put all my layers on it was snug fitting which is not what I want for now hunting. XXL it’s perfect when layered up and wearing it without the layers the waist draw strings on the jacket close up the bottom nicely.

Absolutely the best jacket

Wore this for the first time while taking my son out for a youth deer hunt in Oklahoma. Temperature was 68 with a 15mph wind. The Catalyst Jacket was the perfect choice paired with a wick long sleeve 150 shirt. Great at blocking the chill from the wind as well as staying dry during the walk in and out from the stand.

I now BELIEVE!

I was kinda skeptical to make the purchase. This is the first piece of gear I've EVER bought from First lite. The Athletic cut did NOT restrict or hinder any movement at all and the turret hood doubles as a face mask! This softshell is super silent, holds off rain exceptionaly well. it retained warmth really well in 30+ mph winds and snow from a freak storm that rolled thru in SEPTEMBER! (North Idaho) it's a perfect jacket for those early fall Archery hunts.

Great jakcet, eveyone needs one

Great fit not to tight not to loose, love the pocket layout, quite.
Does everything it says, holds of light rain very well, breaks the wind, and not to hot to hike in.
Pair it with a vest you can sit in pretty cold weather, it's so comfy, I'm going to order a non camo color to just wear daily.
Over all my go to jacket from september to late december in Washington for hiking in.
