This jacket is my go to for cold mornings. Very happy with this product and brag about how effective it is. I wear this jacket from the early morning 10 degrees all the way up to the mid 50's before thinking about shedding. Like how it sheds water in a mild rain as well.
I bought this in conjunction with the Sanctuary bibs for my midseason setup. I planned on wearing this over my sawtooth hybrid jacket along with the bibs. Judging by the feel of this jacket, I d not trust it sitting up against a tree and moving at all. The jacket is a lot lighter than expected, and I expected more of a down style jacket. The exterior material feels very fragile, and time will tell how many sits this makes it through. As I am writing on my 3rd review, I don't believe that FL is the best option for Treestand whitetail hunters. Maybe I am judging the products by initial impressions to much, but I can't see most of their products competing to heavily in the whitetail treestand world. If I could do over again and if my OCD didn't have to make everything match, I would probably switch to a different brand moving forward. I'm sure their products are great for stalking outwest or in the mountains, but hope I'm proven wrong. I did drop a lot of money in FL gear over the last few months, but buying/trying on and returning to amazon is a lot easier than paying for returns because their sizes don't match for different products.
Have used this puffy jacked and pants about 10 times, it is not durable. I have sewn it 3 time in three different places. Forget about walking around in these garments. I am currently shopping for something else. You need to wear this under an outer garment.
Early November hunt at Land Between the Lakes. In the morning it was 26 degrees. I wore this, a klamath hoodie, and furnace base layer. Never got cold. Water just rolls off. I’m sure there are warmer jackets. But for its mix of lightweight, water resistance, pack ability, and durability it’s the best I’ve ever seen.
This jacket and pants combo kept me in the stand longer than anyone else at our camp by at least 2 hours. One day while sitting in the stand it started coming down in a mix of rain and snow, it was 0 degrees Celsius (32 Fahrenheit) and kept me toasty warm and dry with the water just running off, the cord in the hood is a great touch as it allows you to synch the hood onto your head so that when you turn to look the hood moves with you and doesn't block your site. all in all this is a great jacket and pants and you should get it if you're thinking about it.
