I wrote a review for the bibs which are equally as good. Only reason to double up the reviews for the jacket is to say that I found it did run large as the description states. I'm 6' and 205, with a square build with bigger legs, 34 or 36 waist depend of the cut and a 42 regular suit jacket for reference. I ordered the Large bibs which with the build in adjustment of that garment fit great, but when I ordered the Large jacket it was a tarp. Easily 6"+ to much room around the waist of the coat. Returning it from Ontario Canada was a bit of a pain but getting the Medium jacket was definitely worth it.
Just a heads up its not against the rules to order different sizes for top and bottoms of the same set depending on your build.
I waited to write a review until I wore this an entire season. Had it out in -22 degree wind chill with proper layering it was very warm, much warmer than my old system from another brand. The only feedback I have is on the sizing. Based on the reviews I ordered this in a S when my normal size in everything else was M. I still think this was the right choice, it leaves plenty of room for layering and fits better around the mid section. However the sleeves at the elbows are a little tight at full extension when bending my arms. If you bow hunt, you will notice this. Not a deal breaker, just something worth noting. The M size may have longer sleeves but this fits so well around my torso I hate to size up. Other than that small gripe, everything about this jacket is well thought out and as I already mentioned it is incredibly warm.
So I’m wearing the bibs and jacket on a hunt in northwest NJ. Temps are in the low 30’s and we have a foot of snow on the ground. I’m ground hunting and I’m toasty warm. Super impressed with the warmth of this system. My only gripe is I wish it had the pockets like the solitude set. Overall ecstatic over this set for cold weather.
Note I’m a large in the solitude bibs and jacket I had to go medium for the sanctuary.
I picked up this kit for the rifle/ late season here in MN, it can get brutal during this time of year. I have to say this kit stands up. I have gone out with shorts on under it and stayed warm all day. More First Light gear will be in my arsenal for early season hunts.
Received my Sanctuary jacket and bibs in time for our WI. doe hunt. We had a north wind of 15 mph and the temp was about 20. I sat watching a field with the wind gusting with no cover. With my new gear i sat 4 hours until dark. At no point was i ever cold. This is a great product I would highly recommend it to everyone. Thanks First Lite for a great product.
Received my sanctuary bibs and jacket the Friday before PA antlerless opening on Saturday. Definetly too much to walk in, perfect for sitting in a stand. I'm a small guy and usually can't get enough insulation when it gets colder but this gear is very warm and suprisingly quiet. The hour before sunrise was just below freezing but I was comfortably warm with just a couple midlayers.
Bought this system for late season. Super warm and very high quality. Absolutely love it!
This is the best hunting coat I have ever owned. It’s very warm and very quiet in the woods. This will be my 2nd season using my sanctuary insulated jacket and it is definitely worth the price and I promise you will not regret it.
I have been searching for a new bib and jacket set and decided to go with the Sanctuary set. I absolutely love this set and the jacket. This jacket is not bulky but plenty warm!! I love the tree stand harness pass through and slimmed down arm insulation for drawing a bow back.
After a cold bow season, I finally decided to pull the trigger on some new outerwear. I had heard from a lot of people I trust that First Lite had some of the best gear on the market, but I still did my research and compared their gear to what other companies had to offer. In the end, I decided to go with First Lite for a number of reasons, such as the fact they designed the gear I was looking for with the whitetail treestand hunter in mind. I ended up purchasing the sanctuary jacket and bibs. I am extremely satisfied with the gear. Aside from being warm and lightweight, what I like most about it is the fact that is not overly bulky, making shooting a bow much easier. Additionally, it is the quietest outwear I have ever worn. I snuck up on several deer my first day out in it. Overall, I could not be more pleased and would recommend these products to anyone.
