I love this jacket. It is light weight, warm, breathes and completely silent. The quality is awesome, and very well thought out. I bought it late during last bow season so I only got to test it out a couple times with the bow before gun season was open. I used it for a the entire season and for a few late season hunts with the bow and muzzle loader in early-mid December. I was able to layer merino base layer and other mid weight layers for the colder days and was completely comfortable. I also paired it with a down liner on the frigid cold days and was also completely comfortable. This jacket is cut perfectly for moving around. It also is silent, and burdocks and briars do not stick to it, which is a huge plus when walking miles everyday through all kinds of brush. Anything that manages to stick to it can be brushed off with a simple swipe from your hand. The hood is awesome for the colder or rainy days. It manages to cover your entire head and stays out of the way of your face so you do not lose your peripheral vision. I plan to get the sanctuary jacket for the frigid days in the treestand, but I was comfortable with this jacket in temps in the single digits all the way into the 50's when it was layered properly. I highly recommend this jacket. It is worth the investment and I am sure it will be a favorite of mine for a very long time.
I bought this jacket with the matching pants for early through mid season bow hunting in West Virginia. I ordered it in spring time to test it out during Spring Gobbler season which was odd weather from low 20’s to upper 70’s. I wore the catalyst jacket and pants over the kiln base layers and was able to stay warm when cold and not overheat when hot. I did shed the base layer top during really hot days but this system was perfect during this season and I got in and out of my tree stand and have shot bow a bunch and it seems to be perfectly suited for that type of hunting as well. I could not be happier with the system I purchased.
This jacket is awesome for those cool autumn mornings. If you layer it properly you can stay comfortable in some cold Temps.
I have wider shoulders so I ordered it in a large to layer underneath i felt like it ran true to size. I paired it with a Khlin hoodie and used it during November deer season Temp was in the 30’s. I have the pants as well and did not have a base layer. My lower body was cold but upper body stayed fairly warm. I think just the jacket and pants would be fine for 40 degree weather but you want a base layer for anything cooler. overall a good jacket and pant I would recommend it.
Have worn this from January muzzleloader to spring turkey and have no complaints. Plenty of pockets, warm, and even water resistant. Will be a great piece to use for October and layer for colder days.
