SEAK Stormtight Rain Jacket

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.

Excellent quality!
This jacket is constructed very well. Perfect fit, very comfortable and plenty of mobility. Keeps me dry in the wettest conditions. Love how adjustable the hood is, can let it out when the rain is really coming down, or pull it in for better visibility in a slight drizzle. Excellent breathability, never got too hot while hiking through the woods, up and down mountainous terrain. Overall this is a great product, and I would definitely recommend it to friends and strangers alike.

Just spent a week moose huntimg in Ak and it rained over an inch aday every day. This jacket and pant is incedible! It took a beating every day wallowing thru dense alder and other soaking wet brush and kept me totally dry. Not once would i have needed to change out of my under layers at the end of the day back at camp i was that dry. The one suggestion i would make to FL would to add a small flip out bill on the hoodto shed the rain off the head a bit better. I was concerned it might be a bit noisy but once i wore it for a day and when it was wet I didn't really notice it and the moose I got didn't either.Best rain gear i have ever owned. Thank you for a great product!

One of my favorite pieces
This is a review for the past few months that I've had the jacket. I originally bought the seak for my wife as she needed a good wet weather jacket. My first impression was that I was jealous I didn't have one. I ordered it and used it the few weekends I managed to turkey hunt this spring. Hot, muggy central Texas weather didn't bug me one bit when I wore the jacket in warmer wet weather. The seak breathes quite well, the quality is outstanding, and fit is great. I'm issued a ton of goretex type stuff through the Army but nothing stands a chance against his piece of kit. I would like to see a mesh pocket on the inside of the jacket and possibly bibs in the future. I've worn my seak out scouting for birds the past few weekends and this weekend as Hurricane Harvey hit. Great piece!
P.S. y'all need to make this in multi cam!

Top shelf stuff
Again as I said before first lite is awesome. I bought this rain jacket in hopes that it will last me more than a couple years. I just bought it about a month ago and haven't really had chance to use it but so far quality is top notch. The day I received this in the mail it happened to be raining so of course I had to try it out. It worked perfectly it's actually quieter in the rain than it seems it should be. I hope this stuff lasts at least 5 years for me and would love to see a pair of rain pants to match come out next year and fit like the obsidian pants do!!! I didn't buy the rain pants currently available as I was hoping next year for 2018 there might be a seak storm tight pants. So for now I am using my old rain pants and probably isn't a good idea lol!! Keep up the good work, I am truely a first lite guy now!!

A little noisy for me...
I was really hoping this could be my go to jacket for rainy conditions and simply layer up as the temperature drops with the seasons. Without question it's a bad ass rain jacket. My only criticism would be it's quite crinkly and noisy. Pulling back a bowstring without any sound will be an issue. Perhaps the technology hasn't arrived for a quiet yet rainproof jacket.

This jacket does it all!
Picked up the Dry Earth colour for versatility as We use this piece fishing(inland and offshore), skiing, southern BC day hunts, northern BC multi day sheep hunts, the list goes on! For the protection this piece provides it's well worth packing it on long backpack trips. Very breathable, very waterproof. Will say the fit is slightly bigger than some other brands, so if you are a large in, say Sitka, you are probably medium with First Lite. Excellent job First Lite!

Once again top shelf
First Lite rain gear is the best available period!! I have tested it extensively and is in my pack ready to head to Alaska in August!

Awesome Rain Jacket
The SEAK jacket is very nice, but there are a few minor things that I think can be improved on. First is the cut. As an outerwear rainy day jacket, I feel it's an inch short in overall length. I did size down to a small (small in the Uncompahgre jacket, but medium in everything else), so a medium may be longer. Second is the hood. I feel the hood is small for the jacket's intended use. It would've been nice if I could put the hood on without unzipping the jacket. Third is the collar when the jacket is fully zipped up. The jacket is roomy in the chest and skinny in the collar area, so it folds in and lightly presses against my throat when fully zipped. Again, these are minor issues. The jacket is burly and will last forever!

So close!
Ok I live and hunt in Cordova, Alaska; try and find a wetter place...This jacket performs very well, HOWEVER, it doesn't have a loop to hang it up! Seriously, the jacket that touts itself as THE rainy day jacket can't be hung up except by a hanger. I don't know about you guys but closets and hangers aren't part of my everyday hunt scene. So close First Lite, so close. What does a loop of fabric cost or weigh...very little.

Great Product
I originally bought a Seak jacket for my wife, right out of the box I was jealous. Fast forward 6 months and I can say this is one of my favorite pieces of FL gear that I have purchased. The sizing is true and I have plenty of length in the arms. I've worn it during the weeks when the monsoons strike here in central TX and have not had an issue staying dry. Cannot wait to purchase another in camo.

THE BEST RAIN JACKET AVAILABLE! Whether I'm chasing big game animals through a brutal snow storm in the Rockies or swinging flies in a pounding PNW rain storm you will find me wearing ONLY THIS JACKET! Bone dry and unsurpassed breathability.

You won't find a better rain jacket
This is without question the best rain jacket I have ever tried, and I have tried quite a few. It will keep you dry without making you sweat. Don't let the high price sway you - It is worth every cent if you hunt in wet conditions.
- Stefan Wilson on 12/13/2016
Awesome Jacket
This jacket is lightweight, tough, and keeps all the elements out.

It's very well made and should last and last. If you hunt in the rain, this is your jacket.

Best there is
I went back and forth between the stormlight and the SEAK, ultimately choosing the SEAK. I was on a Mule Deer/Elk Hunt in NW Montana and it rained/snowed 75% of our trip. It kept me dry the entire time, and was tough enough to withstand some brush busting. I highly recommend!

10 days in the BC Rain
After a 10-day hunt in northern British Columbia for mountain goat and moose, I'm a believer in the SEAK Stormtight Rain Jacket. It rained 8 out of 10 days and it's hard to remember a moment when conditions weren't soggy. Among the few things that stayed perfectly dry throughout the trip were the layers beneath my Stormtight rain gear. It allowed me to remain warm, comfortable and hunting hard the entire time. The rain gear evacuates moisture well, even when gaining thousands of vertical feet in pursuit of mountain goats. From the outside and from the inside, this rain jacket performed flawlessly.

Out of the Box
Out of the box, the jacket just looks like it can take a beating. The fabric has a density / toughness and stitching / seems all taped well. Jacket cuffs have heavy duty Velcro and hood can be cinched so when not up on your head it won't flap or get in the way. First Lite fusion looks fantastic.

Thinner than I expected with not much for insulation, but designed as a true outer layer. An interior pocket would have been a nice feature, as you have only the two side pockets and the chest.

I principally bought to be used duck hunting in the NE. Used Sunday in a belting rainstorm with no issues. Looking forward to a proper field test - but confident that layered up it will be a strong addition.

Best BC Jacket
This jacket is the best I've used in seriously wet conditions in BC. I spent every day of a nine day moose hunt in this thing and never got wet. The pit zips are huge which is awesome, plus you can actually hunt while wearing the hood which is amazing. This is the best rain coat I've used yet.
- Moosemaster K on 10/17/2016
Best Rain Jacket I've Tried
We log a lot of hours in Bristol in our rain jackets, both hunting and fishing. I used this jacket on the fishing boat and also on a moose hunt in several days of heavy rainfall and stayed totally dry. On top of this we work hard but I never got very sweaty. Way better than the Kuiu jacket I had. Two thumbs up!
