This is now one of my favorite pieces of Camo I’ve ever owned. This jacket is awesome for mobile hunters moving through the woods and fits perfectly. Some people complain about a shooters cut but it fits great especially for archery hunters. My go to for September elk.
I've found the Sawtooth Hybrid regulates my core temp great while keeping me dry when I start sweating in cold temps. I bought it for fall western hunting, but found it's been a great top layer for fly fishing on colder days and actually like it best for back country skiing during the uphill tour. The only knock I have is the zipper height all the up to right below my nose. I prefer it to come mid neck/below the chin and use a buff or balaclava for the rest.
Very tight and the shoulders, with anything else on other then the wick shirt. I’d recommend sizing up if you have broad shoulders. Everything else I’ve bought has been true to size. I would have sent it back. But the cost for shipping back to the states is bloody expensive and same for shipping to Canada. Can’t wait for FL to find a good alternative for us Canadians.
Great sweater. I like the fact this can be a mid layer or an external piece. Great for cooler days while hunting. Even better for some giving me some style around town!
I’ve used this jacket only a handful of times in early mid GA turkey season when the mornings were cool. It is surprisingly warm to be so minimal. It isn’t extremely comfortable when worn over a long sleeve Aerowool base. The shoulders and sleeves are tight. This constriction is very apparent right when you put it on, but after walking and wearing for a few minutes it loosens up some and you don’t notice it as much. I’m not a very broad shouldered guy, and my arms are fairly lanky, so I can see this being worse on dudes with a more athletic or heavier physique.
Durability so far sucks. Like I said, I only wore it out on a few mornings and the stitching on the sleeve cuff is already coming undone. Not sure why they only ran a single stitch on the cuff seams compared to the much more robust stitching on the base layers. This jacket could also benefit from the flat stitched seams on all the fabric joints, which again, are standard on the base layers. C’mon FL, this is what R&D is for.
I really want to like this jacket, as it seems very versatile. It works awesome as an early springtime/fall outer layer and I plan on using it as a cold weather base or mid layer. I’m not so unsatisfied to try and return it, but it just isn’t what I expected it to be, considering every other FL piece I own is so well designed. Overall many of the design choices and weak stitching makes me wish I picked the soft shell or grid fleece. Hold off on buying this piece, at least until they tweak the design.
