This coat is the most comfortable, warmest I’ve ever owned. I’ve been living in this thing. Just like a high end down sleeping bag in the form of a jacket. Great mobility. I can shoot my bow all winter in comfort. The only negative is that I’m now a sissy and can’t wear any of my other jackets or I’ll get cold.
The Chamberlin Down Jacket has been worth it’s weight in gold for me this winter season. It has been my go to jacket for Ice fishing, Northern Lights photography, hunting and daily tasks. I have been wearing it nearly daily primarily in Eagle River AK and the surrounding areas. The Chamberlin has done an excellent job of keeping me warm from temperatures raining from 20 degrees F to - 16 degrees F (coldest temperature I remember wearing this jacket in). It fits great for my size and body type 6’ 2” and 195 lbs/size L jacket. I have spent extensive time outside in the cold wearing this and it’s the warmest jacket I have owned to date. I also own the brooks down sweater from firstlite which preforms great, but this jacket is substantially thicker and warmer. I use this in conjunction with a mix of other firstlite base layers depending on the situation. I can not think of any changes I would make to improve its design. Like other reviewers have noted the color patterns to the Fusion camo has more of a blue/green tint to it. It doesn’t bother me at all personally, but I can see how some might be annoyed by the look. Function wise it’s outstanding.
I bought this jacket to give puffys a try. I was very very happy I did. I use this when it gets cold and pretty much all winter. I live in Wyoming and if you don’t have the right gear to buck the wind and cold then your days are gonna suck. Doesn’t matter whom you go with that’s a fact when hunting the windy state. This jacket is a lot warmer than I thought it would but if you play your cards right with layers you don’t need to worry about it. I liked this jacket so much I bought another one for use when I am not hunting. Which is pretty much all winter activities other than skiing. Fits good, feels good and my favorite part is the zipper comes up far enough to get most of my face out away from the wind.
I hunt in some very cold temps in Idaho- single digits often. Always try to get out early and even if the weather is bad. I was impressed with how warm this jacket is. I have worked in outdoor/backcountry settings all my life and have some warm down jackets and I usually just wear these hunting. I wanted a dedicated (and camo) jacket to wear. I would recommend this jacket to anyone really getting out there when its very cold. I have an 8000 meter peak down jacket that is grey and I often wear it because its so warm- this jacket is almost as warm as it and significantly lighter weight/overall more comfortable. I have not been affected by the wind. I know the warm sitka jacket has the windstopper and I toyed aroound with getting it, but I went with this one and have no complaints. Hood is warm. I more cold natured than I used to be as well. Again, its a very warm jacket. I spent some time researching and deliberating before making the investment and I am glad I did it. Thanks and good luck out there.
Took this coat into the Frank Church wilderness in late October. Coat exceeded my expectations for warmth. Super cold temps, single digits for most of the time. It does pack down but don't expect it to be a small package. This is a big well insulated puffy coat. Super warm for sitting. Too much for hiking. Don't get in the brush with it either, will tear. Overall a great coat, does what it is intended for. I'm very happy with my choice.
The chamberlin down pants and jacked are a must. I purchased both the jacket and the pants for a 14 day Alaskan moose hunt, I wore these under the seak rain gear and was able to keep warm when the temperature dropped down into the teens with a 50 mph wind. If you plan on doing any glassing or sitting still for several hours in lower temps the chamberlin set needs to be in your pack. I also found myself wearing them around camp as they are so warm and cozy I will be packing this jacket on most all of my hunts. Thank you
Wore this on a 3rd season elk hunt in northern Colorado. Perfect when you’re sitting there glassing. Once you put the hood up you can’t hear or feel anything (hence my fortress reference). Some of the other reviews mentioned snagging the material while hiking??? This piece is not meant for you to hike around the dark timber in...it’s too warm for that. Sit down, put it on, and glass to your hearts content. I also slept in it a few nights, it’s awesome. Also packs down very small to fit in your pack.
Took the Chamberlin Down Jacket up in the VA mountains to still hunt. Used a 2-6L compression sack to store in my back pack for the walk into the woods. But once sitting still in 30 degree weather I pulled out the Chamberlin and I was toasty warm. Had a pull over underneath and fit is perfect. I’m lean athletic build and could wear this with base layers or alone in the city and fits perfect. I purchased this jacket for backpack backcountry hunt out West next year and wanted to try out this season and it will be perfect for any cold weather scenario. It drizzled rain and I stayed dry. Also wore in tree stand with my back rubbing on tree and jacket did not rip or tear. Well worth the money!!!
This jacket is perfect for late season elk hunts. Provides superior warmth and insulation with minimal weight. I appreciate the draws on the waist and inside the hood to keep the wind out and the warmth in. The Cipher pattern is a bit lighter than the other pieces in my kit, but not enough to deter a recommendation to anyone looking for some serious warmth. Worth the investment.
Tagged along for a spike elk hunt in Hells Canyon Oregon. At night temperatures dropped to twelve degrees with snow and wind. While all my buddy's where shaking like leaves or having to layer and un-layer as we hiked through some pretty rough terrain I was perfectly comfortable wearing this jacket. It held up while crawling through thick terrain and hurdling over down trees. Yes, it is a little pricey. But if you can afford it, it is well worth it.This jacket will serve me well for many many years. My only gripe is that First Lite did not send me a sticker when I bought it
