Sanctuary Insulated Jacket

Silent Construction 37.5 Insulation

$385.00 USD $269.50 USD

Color/PatternFirst Lite Fusion

Purpose-built for bitter cold days in the tree stand, the First Lite Sanctuary Insulated Jacket is the cold weather component of the First Lite Layering Kit. With a proprietary combination of seven layers of fabric (including a windproof membrane), and insulation carefully positioned to maximize warmth, this thing is an oven. Just as important, this is the quietest outerwear piece in the arsenal and utilizes our shooters cut, allowing you to draw your weapon accurately and uninhibited. With the Sanctuary, you will be able to Stay Longer in your stand on those days when others are heading for home. An important note about sizing: The Sanctuary Jacket is a roomy fit designed to be layered over our base layer system. Without layering, some may find their normal size to be on the larger side. 

The Sanctuary is also available in a Bib Pant.

Very warm

I waited to write a review until I wore this an entire season. Had it out in -22 degree wind chill with proper layering it was very warm, much warmer than my old system from another brand. The only feedback I have is on the sizing. Based on the reviews I ordered this in a S when my normal size in everything else was M. I still think this was the right choice, it leaves plenty of room for layering and fits better around the mid section. However the sleeves at the elbows are a little tight at full extension when bending my arms. If you bow hunt, you will notice this. Not a deal breaker, just something worth noting. The M size may have longer sleeves but this fits so well around my torso I hate to size up. Other than that small gripe, everything about this jacket is well thought out and as I already mentioned it is incredibly warm.

Awesome!!!!!

So I’m wearing the bibs and jacket on a hunt in northwest NJ. Temps are in the low 30’s and we have a foot of snow on the ground. I’m ground hunting and I’m toasty warm. Super impressed with the warmth of this system. My only gripe is I wish it had the pockets like the solitude set. Overall ecstatic over this set for cold weather.

Note I’m a large in the solitude bibs and jacket I had to go medium for the sanctuary.

Warmest ever

I picked up this kit for the rifle/ late season here in MN, it can get brutal during this time of year. I have to say this kit stands up. I have gone out with shorts on under it and stayed warm all day. More First Light gear will be in my arsenal for early season hunts.

So nice to stay warm in the stand.

Received my Sanctuary jacket and bibs in time for our WI. doe hunt. We had a north wind of 15 mph and the temp was about 20. I sat watching a field with the wind gusting with no cover. With my new gear i sat 4 hours until dark. At no point was i ever cold. This is a great product I would highly recommend it to everyone. Thanks First Lite for a great product.

Relief from the elements

Received my sanctuary bibs and jacket the Friday before PA antlerless opening on Saturday. Definetly too much to walk in, perfect for sitting in a stand. I'm a small guy and usually can't get enough insulation when it gets colder but this gear is very warm and suprisingly quiet. The hour before sunrise was just below freezing but I was comfortably warm with just a couple midlayers.

This is the best hunting coat I have ever owned. It’s very warm and very quiet in the woods. This will be my 2nd season using my sanctuary insulated jacket and it is definitely worth the price and I promise you will not regret it.

Simply amazing

I have been searching for a new bib and jacket set and decided to go with the Sanctuary set. I absolutely love this set and the jacket. This jacket is not bulky but plenty warm!! I love the tree stand harness pass through and slimmed down arm insulation for drawing a bow back.

Best hunting gear I've ever owned

After a cold bow season, I finally decided to pull the trigger on some new outerwear. I had heard from a lot of people I trust that First Lite had some of the best gear on the market, but I still did my research and compared their gear to what other companies had to offer. In the end, I decided to go with First Lite for a number of reasons, such as the fact they designed the gear I was looking for with the whitetail treestand hunter in mind. I ended up purchasing the sanctuary jacket and bibs. I am extremely satisfied with the gear. Aside from being warm and lightweight, what I like most about it is the fact that is not overly bulky, making shooting a bow much easier. Additionally, it is the quietest outwear I have ever worn. I snuck up on several deer my first day out in it. Overall, I could not be more pleased and would recommend these products to anyone.

Amazing jacket

This jacket fits amazing and is extremely warm. It is made with pockets and access to everything you could think of. Best camo jacket I have ever owned. Great movement in the jacket as well
