This is the perfect light jacket. It’s pretty much a wind breaker. . I use this from September through the late season and love it. Warm, comfortable, and durable. From the Oregon mountains to the Virginia woods and Pennsylvania farm fields to the Arizona desert this has been my go to.
I wear this year round as my outer layer in the Southeast coastal swamps. It is a great tough exterior for the dense brush down here and typically not too hot, except in the real heat of the summer. I’ve also used it as my exterior during a mule deer hunt in Montana this year, where I saw temps ranging from 50s to the teens with 30 mph winds. It was comfortable both active and stationary in the 30-50s and it was comfortable and a good wind break for active hunting during the winter storm with 30mph winds. It’s not so big that it seems baggy, yet I can easily wear 2-3 layers underneath.
So I got this coat for Christmas, and I went whitetail hunting in Iowa, in 20 degrees, and the impending blizzard hit as predicted. I had an old pair of bibs on - SOAKED. I had this coat on and only thing under it was a T shirt, hoodie - nothing fancy, and an Arcteryx Atom LT jacket, and this coat. I was extremely warm and BONE DRY. So dry I sat was in amazement and not paying attention if there were even deer walking by. Once the catalyst stuff is back in stock, I will expedite it to my door. This coat wasn’t even wet when I put it in my truck. I shook off the snow, tossed it in and it was dry when I got home. My buddies say FL is “too expensive” - I say buy once, cry once. I will wear nothing but First Lite from now on. Worth every. Single. Penny. Coat fit a bit large, but was perfect when I layered with it.
The Corrugate is my favorite new jacket. I’m 6’2 / 210 lbs and typically have to wear XL jackets for sleeve length and they end up being short and baggy around the body. This jacket has generous sleeve length, fits perfect around the body and is the perfect length below the waist. A custom tailored jacket couldn’t fit any better. The material is quiet, tough, comfortable and has stretch to it making it perfect for bow hunting. I ordered a solid color and wear it for work, around town and in the brush. The jacket is built for Texas weather and I’ll be able to use it from fall through spring. This is my first piece of First Lite gear but it won’t be my last.
I mainly hunt from a tree and everyone knows that after awhile the cold will set in no matter what. The wind is the biggest factor and I was surprised that this jacket actually wind resistant. 10-14 mph winds and I didn’t notice it really at all except on exposed skin. The material is a little loud for bow hunting when it’s dead quiet outside. I expect that so didn’t knock a star for it. Overall very pleased and will continue to buy from first lite.
If you wear a L shirt order a L. The M is almost the same but a little shorter in length and hood clearance on the jacket.
Comfortable jacket i Oder XL so could wear extra layers the fit is perfect.
Corrugate jacket is perfect...stand alone or outer layer thing works great. No snag material and lightweight.
Very comfortable jacket. Size fits great. I wear it everywhere.
I just recently upgraded and got the first lite corrugate guide jacket. Ive put it through several days in the field and have been impressed so far. It has a great ability to repel water. I have hunted late rifle season for blacktails in western wa, and also put it through a few late season archery roosevelt elk days in the olympics. So far it has held up well, kept me dry and also helped keep me surprisingly warm. The only downfall ive seen so far is the sleeve cuffs are kinda loose. Other than that i love the jacket so far.
