SEAK Stormtight Rain Jacket

3.5-Layer Waterproof Construction

$340.00 USD

Color/PatternDry Earth

If you spend time where sunshine is a rarity but rain, sleet, fog or snow are the norm, then we feel your pain. The 3.5 layer SEAK Stormtight Jacket was specifically designed for our friends in places like Alaska, BC, and the Pacific Northwest who expect to hunt, fish and just plain live in the rain for days on end but still want unparalleled breathability without sacrificing protection from the elements. With features like its three-and-a-half layer construction, Turret System Hood, waterproof zippers, ultratight adjustable cuffs, and a super-burly construction, the SEAK is built for whatever you can throw at it. Compare this with its little brother, the Vapor Stormlight, and First Lite has your rainwear dialed from ultralight to bombproof.

Great company

I never write reviews but I felt I had to write one about this stuff. I ordered 2 grand in clothing . Base layers, pants, hoody, puffy jacket and pants, socks , 2 pair of gloves, and rain gear. It’s my first time buying good name brand hunting clothes. According to ups the stuff was supposed to be here a week ago but it never showed up. I tried contacting ups and didn’t really get anywhere so emailed first lite and asked if there was anything they could do. They filed a claim with ups and ups could not find the package. I emailed first lite again and explained that I had plans to use the gear on a hiking trip in a few days. Mainly to test it out. They over nighted me the gear. I received it yesterday. They answered my emails within hours I have never worked with a company that had the quality of customer support that first lite has. Now for the gear it is everything I expected and more. I have not tried it in the field yet but I have no doubt it will exceed my expectations. I plan on doing a long hike with it this weekend.

Perfect all-season addition to your kit

I have had this jacket for a few years (it’s in ASAT pattern) and never really had an opportunity to truly put it through it’s paces. Spent several days in eastern Kentucky on a bear hunt with weather that ranged from 60 degrees to freezing rain with heavy fog. There was a significant amount of strenuous hiking to get into position. Each morning it was below freezing and very damp if not raining. I used a first light wool base layer with another heavier mid-layer with this on top. I was never cold while not ever getting sweaty. This thing breathes more than you can imagine yet is completely wind proof. I have used military gore-Tex equipment for years and it pales in comparison with this material. It’s also super tough. Much of the hiking included thickets of brush, thorns and deadfall. This sheds those hazards with no issues. When it’s really cold it repels water and wicks sweat, while being perfectly comfortable in 60 degree rainfall. This is a wet-weather must have. I take it on every hunt from deer to waterfowl.

I really wanted to love this jacket...

After owning this jacket for a year I can confidently say, I just don't understand the hype.

I wanted to love this jacket, and made every excuse in the book as to why it wasn't performing to my expectations (even after reapplying the waterproofing spray) but I just can't keep making excuses.

The fit is great, the tech is great, the customer service was fantastic and the features are great, but the jacket simply doesn't hold up to British Columbian weather.

I didn't expect this jacket to be a dry suit, but for $500 (after tax), but I did expect it to keep me dry while coaching my sons lacrosse game at the very least.

I live in a climate where I need to rely on my kit, and I invest in it, unfortunately, this is not a jacket I will rely on. I've been saturated during short exposures and left freezing too many times. For the money, I'll be going back to a brand I know that works.

PNW Worthy

I've used this jacket on a total of 14 days worth of Olympic rainy days in the mountains. If you take care to protect the openings - the wrist cuff, hood, pit zips - you will remain dry, even while plowing through brush. The caveat to that is you will remain dry for probably a day or so of prolonged, Washington rainforest style rain. During my 5 day High Buck hunt, there was one day of torrential rain followed by 3 days of light rain. The only issues I had keeping dry during that hunt came from not protecting the cuff and hood openings. During my 9 day elk hunt, I had to cycle between several rain jackets. This isn't a reflection on the Seak as I doubt anything shy of a full rubber suit would have kept me dry with the weather we had this year. However, be aware that there is no silver bullet with real PNW rains. I've owned GoreTex jackets my entire life and I've got to say I may be drinking the Kool Aid on 37.5. Its drying time is ridiculous. I did several experiments during my elk hunt: I left the jacket in my car one night to dry, on the ground under my hammock/tarp another night and did the same with an army issue winter gore tex jacket and two Arc'Teryx Beta SLs. No matter where I left the Seak, it dried. The three GoreTex jackets I always woke up to them still being soaked. From the descriptions of how 37.5 is supposed to work, heat (conduction) should be the best way to dry it, but I found that airflow (convection) was vastly better at drying it out. Around 30 minutes of glassing in the wind dried it faster than walking up and down the mountains all day long. Its abrasion resistance is decent, but stay out of vines - blackberries in particular. If First Lite allowed pictures in their reviews, I would post some of the scratch damage. Once again, not really a jab at the Seak as I pushed it to the absolute limit to see what it was capable of, but something to be aware of. It's heavy duty, but you still need to take care of it.

Overall, I highly recommend the Seak. In 103 miles, 52,000' of elevation change over 14 days - largely bushwacking - in late September and mid November on the Olympic Peninsula, I have had a chance to put it through its paces and I am highly satisfied with the performance. I love how quickly it dries and the durability exceeds any GoreTex shell I own. 92/100

Great Jacket

I like to use a rain shell as my all around outer layer. It works great for blocking wind, holding in some heat and keeping me dry. It's sturdy enough that it doesn't feel like your going to tear walking through briars but light enough that you can keep it in your pack just in case. I will wear my furnace fleece and a down jacket underneath and be warm down below freezing temps. The pit zips are great for dumping some heat while hill climbing. I was going to buy the lighter weight vapor jacket but decided since I use it for more than just-in-case rain protection I'd go for the heavier duty jacket and I'm very pleased with it. I may even get a non camo one for everyday wear.

Very Impressed

These came in and were the perfect excuse to hit the lake and troll. We went out and did get rained on and caught some wind, The jacket kept me dry and was impressively easy to move in. Fast forward a week and I'm wearing this jacket as my outer layer in the late October A Tag Elk opening in the Idaho Panhandle. Under this I had the Sawtooth Jacket and the Fuse crew base layer. I did get hot and sweated during some portions of the morning hikes, but was impressed by how quickly the moisture was able to wick away and vent out of this jacket. I have owned several rain jackets over the years and they always leave me sweaty then cold after sweating in them....this one is very breathable. I layered the Uncompahgre 2.0 under this and they fit together nicely. I'm very impressed with the cut on First Light's gear, the sleeves stay down where they are supposed to be all the time. Worth every penny. I will be buying the light version of this system for backpack hunting next September.

Outstanding!

Absolutely worth the money and a wonderful addition in horrific weather. I have worn nearly everything including military Goretex and this is durable,quiet as far as rain gear goes,and breathes exceptionally well. From Idaho sagebrush to Missouri hardwoods it has been a great investment. Breaks the wind,keeps you dry and fits well in my pack. Couldn't ask for more.

I purchased this jacket as part of my interior Alaska kit, but would honestly make it part of any kit i put together. This is by far the best rain/wind jacket I’ve ever used.

Awesome jacket

Best rain jacket Ive ever had. The fit is fantastic - I ordered XXL based on chest size and was worried it might be too big around the midsection. It isn't. It has room for layers under without being baggy. Sleeves and cut handle activity, rifle handling, etc. like a champ.
