Sanctuary Insulated Jacket

Silent Construction 37.5 Insulation

$375.00

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 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. *More inventory expected in early summer.

The Sanctuary is also available in a Bib Pant.

Well worth the money, perfect for late season archers

So I bought this jacket last year before it got cold for whitetail hunting. I was sick and tired of freezing and not having quality warm and quiet camouflage for bow hunting. Anyway pulled it out of the box and put it on in the house and wore the jacket for about half hour or so. I was defenetly warm but I wasn't sweating like crazy. This proved to me that the jacket breathes very well. Warmest I hunted with it on was mid 30s. It could definetly be worn in warmer temps as long as your not super active. (keep in mind if I'm somewhat active 30 degrees is sweatshirt weather to me). Coldest I had hunted with this jacket was about negative 5 with some slight wind. I was wearing the wick and kiln as a base layer also with the sawtooth vest then this jacket and bibbs. I also absolutely hate to wear gloves and with this jacket I had my hands in the pockets without any hand warmers and they were super warm in those pockets! I hunted that morning for around 3 hours and was still warm except my feet. I've also used this jacket and bibbs to practice shooting bow in when its real cold outside, and the jacket does not get in the way at all. I was shocked that such a warm heavy jacket is so thin and doesn't hinder anything at all. It is also dead silent, just the perfect jacket for late season archers. I ordered a medium and I still had plenty of room with those 3 layers underneath, its sized with the anticipation that you will be wearing baselayers. With that being said, wearing just the jacket and a t shirt it still isn't big and bulky. Id say buy the size you would normally wear. I also own the catalyst jacket, and I tried putting on the wick, kiln, sawtooth vest, catalyst, and then put on the sanctuary bibbs then jacket and it wasn't too bulky or tight. It was just too hot for me to wear. I only had this for the one season so I cant attest to durability, it seems tough and hasn't had any tears or frays yet though. I hope this helps someone out!

Very warm

I love this jacket for late season. I walk-in with it in my pack and once I cool down, I throw this on and warm for all day sits in the stand. Only reason I gave it 4 stars is that it doesn’t have the slat in the back of the jacket for harness safety line to go through like the Woodbury has.

Warm and quiet

Kept me comfortably warm on a 10 deg day in the woods. The fabric is super quiet against itself as well. Wish I lived in a colder climate to wear it more often!

Fit Comments: Medium fits me great. I'm on the lanky side and wear 31x34 pants and medium shirts. I was worried that the bibs might not be long enough but they fit great. I wear a wool base layer and hiking pants under the bibs and a couple of wool layers and a polartec fleece under the jacket and don't feel constricted at all.
Great Treestand System

Every year I tell myself I'm going to invest in some warmer treestand hunting clothes but by the time the end of the season rolls around I put it off until the next year. I'm so glad that I finally took the plunge and bought this jacket and bibs. I've always worn a bunch of layers to try to stay warm but with all of the bulk it gets difficult to move around and draw a bow. This system is warm and easy to move around in, the slimmer fitting shooters cut sleeves are great. This is strictly an ambush hunting system, I pack the bibs and jacket in and put them on before I climb up into a tree. The fabric is not what I was expecting but it is nice, it's kind of a spandex feeling fabric on the outside which makes it very quiet. I have have been warm in them so far although the coldest I've used it in so far is probably around 20. The hood on the jacket is nice in that it adjusts snug and is not too bulky. The thigh pockets on the bibs are really handy, there's a zipper pocket with an elastic closed pocket on top which is nice for sticking gloves in.

Thumbs up

I have had no issues with this jacket after a year of hard use. With no rain jacket, I sat through hours of cold rain in the PA rifle opener and still managed to stay warm.
