I’m a small-ish, dense ~150lbs, and find the medium very roomy, even over 2 base layers, which are super not necessary because this puffy is extremely warm. The first time I wore it I had on a light capilene and midweight wool in 15 degrees F and I was sweating. I lost the wool and cranked up a ridge and stayed dry and warm hiking hard through big winds and random sleet. The thing was soaked in sweat when I got up there but I stayed warm sitting on my butt in snow at 8300’ and it dried out super fast in the sun back at camp. Only thing is it’s missing a zipper pull on the left pocket- the zipper itself is actually different than the main zipper and the zipper on the right pocket, not sure what’s up with that. Makes it hard to grab with big gloves on so I made one. I kinda wish I’d tried on the small but I was too excited when it came in the mail, and I wonder if I’d have too limited shoulder mobility to shoot comfortably in a smaller size.
This jacket is just what I've been looking for! I actually bought it to wear everyday - but am considering purchasing another for hunting. I ordered a medium and it fits great with or without a sweatshirt underneath. I love to layer my sweatshirts and am so thankful I can continue with this jacket. Highly recommend - super comfortable!
I used this jacket on my elk hunt and it was perfect. I strapped it to the outside of my pack for the hike in so I could have easy access to it once we got to a place to sit and call. I really enjoyed the lightweight factor and was honestly surprised at how warm it keep me, even though it felt like I had nothing on. It allowed me to skip my base layer on top, which was nice when the sun came out and it got warm. I also purchased the puffy pants (would be great if those came in women's sizes as well) and the two made for a perfect pair at 4 am after getting out of my warm sleeping bag to drink my coffee. Thank you First Lite for understanding that women need the same type of gear as men, just crafted different to fit our bodies better. It hard to understand why more companies don't catch on to that. My next purchase is some pants, now that I'm finding women's hunting clothes to fit so great my men's pants just won't cut it next year. Thanks again, you have a lifetime customer right here.
Absolutely phenomenal jacket. Perfect fit, crazy lightweight, amazing insulation. Excellent waterproof quality and dries quickly. First day of turkey hunting and it rained the entire time... Dried off in about 20 minutes (maybe a little longer) after I got out of the rain. Hood is so warm! I like the amount of storage, one inner pocket and the two side pockets. My only tiny complaint is that I'm missing a pull on a zipper on one side when I got my delivery last week. But otherwise, great jacket.
My go-to outer layer in the field! Warm, quiet, true to size. I have worn this jacket in multiple weather conditions over the last year(rain, snow, chilly sunny mornings) and it has never kept me less than comfortable! Very pleased with this jacket!
This is by far the warmest, comfiest jacket I have EVER had. I have worn it in downpours, blizzards and 45 degree sunny weather and have never once been too cold or too hot. I want one in every color!
This is by far the best jacket I have ever owned. If I could I would wear it all day everyday. It has put up with just about everything that I’ve thrown at it and still looks and performs as if it were brand new. The freedom and range of movement with the jacket is insane. I took it on a pig hunt with me and we got into a pretty pig boar. Long story short I had to end up diving out of the way of boar and ended up rolling down a steep hill. The jacket handeled it extremely well. I thought for sure that there might be some tears in it, but it survived without a scratch. This jacket is incredibly durable and comfortable, it has it all.
Finally a perfect puffy jacket for women! I love everything about this jacket . I hope First Lite continues to expand their women’s clothing line with top quality pieces that are made for women who are actually using the gear outdoors. I would LOVE if they added an Auroa Puffy Vest to their line SOON!!
I bought this just before 4th rifle season in Co. We had almost 50 deg one day to 15 deg with snow. This jacket was great for sitting on the warmer day, and I wore it all day when it was colder and snowing. It kept me warm and dry, without being too warm. I really like how light, and quiet this jacket is, and how small it compresses down to fit in my pack, when I don't need it. I'm contemplating getting another one for everyday wear!
Full disclosure. I never write product reviews, but I feel this jacket deserves one. It is AMAZING. It's been a great piece for Eastern Montana spot and stalk hunts, as well as tree stand hunts in Minnesota. I am blown away by the warmth for being so lightweight. If you are looking for one do-it-all jacket -- look no further!
