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.
Very pleased with the warmth and how comfortable this jacket is. Also very happy with the scent control and Camo pattern.
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 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 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.
