I bought the jacket and pants for an early season Colorado elk hunt, but also to use for November whitetail back home. The pants were used very little for a September elk hunt, but they were nice to have as insurance in the event of bad weather. The jacket was worn each morning until about 10am and fought off the morning chill without being overly warm when hiking. This might be one of the most versatile jackets I have ever owned. When not needed, it disappeared in my pack and weighs next to nothing. We were chasing elk in thick oak brush and this jacket stood up to the abuse very well. I am looking forward to wearing the jacket and pants for deer later this season.
Ran this jacket on my most recent elk and mule deer archery hunt in NW CO. Very lightweight and packable layer that I would start the morning with when temps where in low 30s. Quick and easy to shed and stuff away in pack when body temp started rising as we began chasing bugles. Jacket usually came back out as darkness fell and temps dropped while we where setting up camp from night to night. I also used the self stuffing pillow option...not for my head but for my legs. It was difficult for us to find perfectly flat spots for camping and I found that sleeping on my side offered me more comfort and having that below between my knees kept my back and hips in better shape throughout the 8 day hunt. This is by far my most versatile insulated jacket...I can’t say enough good things about it!
I used the Uncompahgre 2.0 on an early season elk hunt in Colorado. Temperatures dropped into the 15-20 degree range with about 30 inches of snow. The Uncompahgre 2.0 kept me warm around camp and dried extremely quickly when it got wet. Excellent for layering under a hard shell while staying stationary in bad weather, or as an outer layer. The jacket also compresses down to a decent size inside of pack to save room for other gear. The sizing was a little large, but works good if you layer underneath and provides for a good range of motion.
I bought this jacket for my son that gets cold easily when hunting. It has been amazing. It's light, easy to store, super warm. It fit really well on him too.
I bought this jacket in its original version initially. i hunted it for a month or so and had a seam come apart. First lite replaced it with zero hassles. They sent me the new version, the 2.0 which had a little different fit. Ended up not liking how that jacket fit in a medium compared to the original version. Once again called up customer service and they got me sorted out with a new version in a large. The large 2.0 fits me perfectly! Love the jacket, but can speak more highly about the service I’ve got from every person that picks up the phone at First Lite. Thats what buys brand loyalty. All my new gear is first lite from here out.
I was torn between this and the Solitude set for my insulation layer. I went with the Uncompahgre because I typically hike into public land a mile or more and wanted something light and compressible that I could carry inside my pack and put on at the tree or in the stand. Layered with a Kiln or Furnace this jacket and pants will take me through late season in upstate South Carolina easily. Fit is great, sleeves were just long enough to allow drawing my bow without restricting movement. Plenty of room around the chest and waist for layering. I wish it was quieter, but it's quiet enough.
as soon as i took it out of the package i knew this was gonna be a piece i will never head into the woods without. light and packable yet filled with warmth.
I've been switching gear for years and actually stumbled on this watch Steve and Cal on meat eater and have been a believer since.
Bought this in fusion for western hunting this year. Jacket fit is great, super comfortable, and warm. Can easily draw a bow with it, sleeves are out of the way. Jacket makes hardly any noise, but is not 100% quiet(I'm still going to wear it during my archery whitetail with zero concern). Love it so much I just purchased another one in Ash gray for my daily wintertime use outside the woods.
