My entire kit is First Lite and will continue to be. However, I am not stoked on these gloves. The fit is great and no issues there. These gloves do not breathe at all. They are warm in cold weather (late season archery in AZ high country) but caused my hands to sweat badly and we all know what sweat does to you when it’s cold out. Once your hands are wet they are difficult to get on and off. My hands do not get sweaty in any other pair of gloves I own. I will be trying a different pair next.
Got these gloves for mid to cold weather in North Alabama. They work great, found they are a bit small even in a XL. Also if your hands get damp they are hard to deal with. Getting them back on after wet is not fun. More a dry weather glove. Dry conditions..... I love em. Can still feel the trigger bow hunting.
These gloves are a good glove and love the fact they use the catalyst softshell material. However, they run small and you cannot wear a liner underneath. They are a decently warm glove.
This glove is great for early to mid fall hunting. I found it the perfect glove out chasing Pronghorn in October in CO. It was a bit light for a November westslope deer hunt
This is almost the glove I’ve been waiting for. Weatherproofing is excellent and sheds water like a duck’s back. They do well keeping hands comfortable down close to freezing which works well for keeping bow-in-hand during the rut. As a tree stand hunter I personally feel leather on a glove is overkill as it sacrifices dexterity, feel, and warmth. Having said that, if I primary hunted out west I’d want the durability of leather on a glove. I ended up treating the leather making it more pliable with a noticeable improvement in dexterity, feel and fitment. Size runs small, recommend going up a full size.
These glove fit prefect. I wear xl in almost all my gloves this were perfect for me. I like a tight form fitting glove so that my trigger finger does not hung up on my trigger guard when I’m hunting. The Interior of glove is super soft and slides on and off with out a problem. This will be on my hands every cold morning in the duck blind or on the ridges glassing for big game. Only draw back is I would like the finger touch on them like on my guide light gloves.
The catalyst gloves are incredible. The Wind proof and water resistant technology is sweet! highly recommend these to anyone in the backcountry.
I'm in the middle of the large size band on circumference around the knuckles on the size chart. I bought a large and I have to force my hand past the cuff on these gloves. I tried putting them on with the thumb hole wick top and it was almost too tight to get my hand in. Also these are not cold weather gloves.
i really want to love these gloves. they're reasonably warm and comfortable. i wore them for the Dec/Jan flintlock hunt in northern PA without an issue, the biggest issue i have with them is the lack of water resistance. they seem to soak up water like cotton
I'll qualify this by saying that I haven't worn these in the field yet. They seem like nice gloves. However, I measured my hands as directed and originally ordered a M on that basis (I do have relatively small hands). They were definitely too small, so I returned for a L. I can get those on, but they're still tight enough that I can't full flex my hand wide open without straining against the material. Sending back a second time now to get XL.
