I'm 5'7 " & 170 and wear a small. It fits over my wick, kiln, and klamath and under my "uncle padre". This jacket is solid at cutting wind and repeling light to moderate rain while still remaining breathable to hike in. Also durable enough to hold up to moderate brush/briars. I tend to use this as a light weight rain protection or wind breaker when its warm enough to not need a full jacket. This jacket is my best friend during spring turkey in New England!
Used for the whole spring turkey season in a lease that barely had a patch without briars. My gear got wrecked when scouting the area, so I bought this because it seemed lightweight enough for the spring heat, was warm enough for ~40° meetings, and could still hold up against a constant barrage of thorns. It held up strong without any rips or tears while moving through the brush. It was a little light for high 30s temps, but was good all round as the temperature shifted from morning to evenings in the 70s/80s.
Wow. Worth the investment. I have the jacket and pant set. Perfect for brush busting spring bear. Cant wait to see how they do for elk and deer
I primarily use this for antelope hunting in WY. The material is very durable. I also wear this over a Brooks or Puffy to protect them from ripping in heavy downed timber.
I've got a couple pairs of the corrugate guide pants, so I decided to give this a try. It has been a great all around light jacket. Keeps the briars at bay and off of costly wool baselayers. Gives good wind and water protection, though I'd still reach for a shell in a downpour. Great for shoulder season, turkey hunting, upland, archery hunting, high output cold weather activities and fishing. The stretch is great, so I wear it often when rowing a raft. If I ever managr to wear it out, I'll certainly be ordering a new one.
I have had the jacket for a little over a year and it has held up very well. My main purpose was to use it to block wind upland hunting in SD. It did a great job of that and much more. I could wear it on warmer days and not get overheated. I used it all through hunting season and into late season. In the cold season (low teens-negative), I would wear a base layer, warm sweatshirt and then the jacket. This worked out great for bird hunting. It kept the wind at bay and it didn't restrict movement to bad. The jacket itself fits pretty snug but has great stretch. Also a great jacket for everyday use. The jacket does make a little noise when moving but nothing terrible. Holds up well to briars and barb wire fence as well. Good jacket
The sleeves are a hair long on a 5'9" 220lb frame that wears an xl but overall the jacket is awesome. Ive been wearing it over a tshirt right now in low 40s temp while moving and its perfect. Could add any layers I want. Bought it in a solid to wear all the time and hunting as well.
This is the soft shell I was looking for. I hunt and hike out of Colorado and Missouri with the former having bipolar weather and the latter being very brushy/thorny. Not to mention polar opposite hunting styles are required so a versatile system is a must. This jacket is the perfect addition to a system involving a hard shell and puffy/fleece. Realistically this could be thought of as a jacket for general movement in the backcountry. It’s a “force field” for the more sensitive midlayers that you’ll forget you’re even wearing. This jacket will be replacing my catalyst soft shell. The catalyst is wonderful but for me, I found the extra insulation to be a detriment overall and no longer want insulation in my soft shells when I can simply add more layers if I so choose. Some may think the thinness of this jacket is a detriment but I think it’s the best quality. Don’t listen to the reviewers that say this is only an early season jacket. With appropriate midlayers this is perfect for winter. Just yesterday I went on a hike in a 2 degree Colorado snow front in just a base, fleece sweater, puffy vest, and the curragate on top. This jacket does exactly what I need, protects me and my midlayers from minor moisture, wind, and abrasions without adding insulation or bulk. If a downpour/snow storm or high winds start, I have a hard shell I can switch to. If temps drop, I can add more insulation to this jacket as needed and the toughness will protect my more fragile puffy layers and help them with wind. If I have to sit for long periods of time glassing or in a tree stand, I just up the layers and add a hard shell for complete wind and moisture resistance. This jacket when used with an appropriate system of mid layers and hard shell really ties it all together at a very competitive price point as well as meeting size and weight constraints. You will be hard pressed to find another soft shell with these characteristics that is also slim in the arms for bow hunting, yet roomy enough for appropriate layering.
I'm pretty sure you'll never find another jacket like this anywhere else - and if you did it would cost you twice as much. This thing is perfect. No frills, lightweight, super breathable yet a wind stopping ninja master, brush-busting monster of a jacket! I love the fit including the hood which is tricky to get right with no cord adjustments. Spot on FL! If I'm forced to complain - I just wish they made it in Black. I'd buy three so I have one in cipher for hunting and two in solid colors. Why no Black in this one FL? Your other jackets are offered in Black. If you're on the fence, buy it. You won't be disappointed. It's like a tailor made piece that works for anything I can think of from walking the dog to busting tree line at 10,000 ft.
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.
