Men's Catalyst Soft Shell Jacket

2 Layer Silent Softshell

$240.00 USD

Color/Pattern
In Stock & Ready to Ship

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.

    FirstLite for the win

    Originally I ordered the XXL but it was way to big. Got the XL and it is amazing with enough room to layer. I’m 6’2 240lbs and the XL fits perfect. I have a late season mule deer tag for the eastern Sierras and this soft shell will be perfect.

    Great Fit and Finish - Would recommend

    Former University athlete with some dad wight in the middle, Bought the XXL for having room for an additional insulating layer for later season. Longer than average arms, and still have enough sleeve, which is nice. If I was to wear this as a stand-alone layer, would recommend the XL for someone with a similar build. Did not cook myself scouting evenings in BC, Region 5, and will not freeze until later season. Very quiet when rubbing against brush, and does not swish against itself like a good pair of ADIDAS tear-aways.
    Also purchased the Merino wool pants to accompany, and if fashion and matching is your concern. The cammo print appearance is slightly different on the synthetic Top (I own Cypher), from the natural pants. This should not be overly surprising given the drastic difference in material but someone will always complain, I will save you the chirp from any campfire fashion folks that may notice!!!
    Looking forward to seeing how it wears, but the stitching and material feels very similar to another premium technical gear company that has a skeleton bird for their logo, which always held up well during use throughout my military service. There is no reason to speculate that this gear will not hold up as well with rugged use.

    Love this jacket

    This jacket is awesome dead quiet and perfect to cut the wind. The fit is great and it packs up decently small when the day warms up.

    Good jacket

    This is an ideal jacket for late spring and early fall hear in east coast Canada. Not to heavy, and helps take the chill off when the sun goes down in the stand.

    Terrific option for midseason and archery

    Have had this since 2018 and it's been my go to jacket for archery up until the temps drop and force me into warmer gear. I wear this into the 40's with a tee and a heavy base layer. The cut of the jacket makes movement and drawing a bow without interference easy. The fabric and zippers are very quiet. No construction-related issues...is holding up well after 3 seasons.
