I really like this gear. I rated the fit as a bit small, due to the size of the cuff. I have large hands so it is a bit snug when getting in and out of the jacket. Also, the forearm area is a snug fit, so once you put on some base or mid layers, it takes a bit of effort to to get my hands/arms through the jacket. Once they are on, it's a great fit. Comfortable and warm. Pockets and adjustments are top notch.
Got the full Solitude system with Under layers and it’s kept me warm and comfortable with sitting and waking around. Worked great from 10 degrees Celsius to -25.
I'm a big fan of First Lite gear, and hold it to an incredibly high standard. This jacket blew any expectations out of the water. I couldn't have asked for a warmer, more comfortable, and quiet piece of clothing.
I will have to say this is the warmest gear I have used so far! I only wore my thermal base layers in 25-35 and was very comfortable. Great pocket placement and love the connection with the bibs!! It does have a tall collar but it was not an issue when setting my kisser button.
My only gripe is the sizing. I probably should have went with a size up. I love the athletic cut but I feel that any more layers will be too much. I think I can fit a vest underneath but not another sleeved layer.
Bought the solitude bib and jacket for mid&late season north east white tail. The system is really great. When hiking to the stand the I found that you can unzip the pockets that provide access to the bib muff to let out excess heat. Then for your long sits, zip up the pockets to stay warm. The set is excellent at repelling moisture in a light rain, very quite and has lots of great pockets. Since ive picked this set up its been temps have been high 20's in the morning and mid 50's in the afternoon. This is really the sweet spot for this gear with a good base layer. I have used the bib in combination with the klamath hoody on the warmer days above 60F. It works just as good!
Shout out Duke @ first lite for being so helpful with all questions!
Been wanting a single layer heavy duty jacket for hunting and this jacket was a great choice first impression was very warm and had a cozy feel to it. I am taller with really long arms and the XL fits me perfectly.
Pros: insulated pockets are amazing
sat in the rain three sits in a row and the jacket never got cold my cheeper habit bibs soaked up the water and left me with cold legs. the jacket took on a little water but nothing to big
tall neck of the jacket was nice for the longer colder sits to bundle up with
cons: I am not sure how i feel about the hood i used it a little then removed it i will probably put it back on to try it again it wasn't bad just felt like it sat high above my head
overall it is an awesome jacket for cold weather that doesn't feel like it takes away all of your maneuverability i feel like i can still layer up under it or wear it with only a t shirt
I'm loving this kit the more I wear it. The material is ridiculously silent, and the pockets are exactly where you need them. It's warm without being too bulky. Definitely a more athletic fit, but WAY better for drawing a bow back from the stand. Very happy with the Jacket and matching bibs. Love the pass through pocket to the bibs, and really love the "sleeves" integrated into the pockets to keep the air out from your hands.
Quality jacket don’t know why they havent fixed the collar issue getting in the way of your anchor point with a thumb button as said in previous reviews, thought I was gonna have to send the jacket back but it’s not a big deal if you just tuck the collar in your neck just hope I don’t forget to do that before going out one day. Only other complaint would be first lite logo on the back is positioned where it runs the tree and I can see the “e” in lite is already starting to peel a little just because of were it’s placed and can run the tree the other logos and those are very quality just like the rest of this jacket.
perfect for the whitetail rut in wisconsin. Will be able to layer when it gets cold
