Women's Catalyst Soft Shell Pant

2 Layer Silent Softshell


In Stock & Ready to Ship

The Women's Catalyst Soft Shell Pant brings dead silent, breathable softshell protection to the First Lite Women's outerwear collection. As the female counterpart to the field-proven Men's Catalyst, we've engineered this pant to fit female hunters while implementing the same exacting functionality and performance.

The advanced 2-layer construction is designed to work with your body like a second skin. Engineered stretch and articulated tailoring allow the pant to move with you and provide unsurpassed comfort and uninhibited movement. The Catalyst's 37.5 interior fleece enhances your body's natural processes to optimize body temperature and exhaust sweat to keep you comfortable, while the DWR-treated exterior provides silent, durable exterior works to shed moisture and cut wind.

The Women's Catalyst pant defies convention providing silent, lightweight packability that is both warm and breathable. Whether sitting silently in the rut waiting on whitetails or hoofing it through knee-deep snow on the trail of late-season elk, the comfort and performance of the Catalyst Soft Shell Pant can turn even the hardest day into one of the best.

The Catalyst is also available in a Women's Jacket and will be available in sizes XS, SM, MD, LG and XL.

    Awesome pants

    Love these so much. They are perfect for the mid season hunts. Mine are a little bigger but when you layer it comes in handy. They are really comfortable and have a ton of cool pockets.

    Really warm

    I would size up in these because of there being a lack of stretch in comparison to other pants but really comfortable

    Great all around pant

    Very very quite pants that are warm and can add layers easily underneath. Love the fit - feminine but airy enough for layers.

    Surprised by the comfort and warmth

    I haven't had very good luck in the past with buying pants online, but this was a great surprise. They fit my furnace long johns under them with room to spare so they are extremely comfortable. Water resistant and held up well hiking in all-weather types this season.
