Comfort is unmatched and incredibly warm! I can’t say enough good things about the material and the way it performs. I never want to take them off.
I owned the Allegheny suit, then sold it and bought this when FirstLite came out with the new version. The design change did what it was intended to do, added structure to the garment for a better fit. The old version would sag a little especially after wearing a while and become a little unstructured. The merino X version is great, warm, soft and itch free. And I really like the chest pocket. Perfect weight for November rut hunting in the Midwest.
I hunt in the deep south, and temperature fluctuations are a serious issue. It is not unusual to hunt one afternoon in 70 degree weather, and wake up the next morning to find its 29 degrees and windy. Having been convinced to go the wool route by my uncle who hunts out west, I purchased these pants for those chillier days, especially when there is a good wind. I have hunted with these, and my Obsidian pants on several very cold mornings (25-30 degree days) and I have found them to be a tremendous combination. The Obsidian pants alone are comfortable in lower temps, and while these are not wind proof, they are so warm when combined with the pants, I find they are perfectly suitable for that temperature range. I would highly suggest these to anyone who hunts public land in the deep south as a light and packable option to slip on having walked to the stand!
The boot cut eliminated the hot, sweaty uncomfortable bunching you get around your heavy winter boots and socks. I think this makes my feet warmer, especially when I have a hike into the stand. When it gets really cold (below 20 degrees with significant wind), I will add an additional fleece layer between this and my Sanctuary bibs. What I like most is the sheer comfort and excellent fit of this piece. It fits snugly but doesn't constrict in the slightest. It feels like I'm wearing nothing at all.
Fits perfectly, not too tight and not too loose. It keeps me warm and it feels like the sweat almost evaporates when you walk in. I will no longer buy UA products or anything similar. First lite has earned my business for life. Would recommend this product to anyone.
