SEAK Stormtight Rain Jacket
3.5-Layer Waterproof Construction

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.

Ordered wrong size 9/8/2018

I recently placed an order for this SEAK Stormtight Rian Jacket and upon submitting the order I realized I clicked the wrong size. Right away I called the Firstlite phone number and spoke to someone right away! I wasn't placed on hold or had to go through a line of automated questions. I would like to RAVE about their customer service! The original order was canceled and I could retry the order online with the correct size.

A true rain jacket for us in Southeast Alaska 9/4/2018

Bought this rain jacket as my primary layer for Sitka Black Tail and Black Bear in Southeast Alaska. As the name of the jacket suggests, we live in the rain. To speak to the efficacy of the jacket I will tell a story:

Chasing Blacktails in mid September, I found myself atop Mt. Troy in Juneau, AK. That morning was a squall at sea level, and at 3,000' it was worse. Dumping a 1/2 inch an hour an blowing forty: absolutely miserable. There I was, atop that mountain, snug as a bug waiting for the fog to clear.

If you live in wet weather, this is the rain system for you.

Great hunting rain jacket. 9/1/2018

Jacket fits great! Good range of motion. With a hunting bag on, pit zips get a lot of use and are super nice. I highly recommend this jacket.

If it dumps rain where you hunt, buy the jacket.

Two Thumbs Up 8/30/2018

Just used this jacket for the first time during the 2018 archery season in a bunch of hail and rain and It preformed great. It's lightweight but not something I would worry about ripping going through scrub oak ect. For the durability it is very packable. This is the quietest rain wear I have ever owned and I'm excited to rock this jacket for years to come!


How it fits
I'm 6' 200lb with broad shoulders and the XL fits great. The L would have been a little small for my taste but would have fit as well.

Buyer's remorse for no reason 8/30/2018

Initially I had buyer's remorse when my SEAK jacket was delivered. I then took it with me to Alaska on two separate trips and I love it!. Fit perfectly, I stayed dry and warm ( thermal layer underneath). It is light and flexible. The only thing I didn't like it that I can't roll up or store the hood when it isn't in use.

Love this jacket 8/30/2018

This coat is great. Was over outside of Bend in early spring. The rain wind and snow was unbelievable, and I don’t think I have ever been so dry and comfortable in weather that bad. Great product can’t wait to use it for las season archery here in Oregon.

Dry and comfortable 8/30/2018

Purchased this jacket and pants before heading to a week long hunting trip in Alaska. We had 3 days of heavy rain out of the 6 hunting days. We were out all day hunting from morning to night with no cover so really put this gear to the test. I stayed dry all day and did not even have the rain wick up my shirt sleeves. We were also climbing through very heavy berry vines and I did not end up with any tears in my gear. Fit is very comfortable and the zipper is easy to operate even with gloves on. Hood is the best one I have ever used. Kept the rain off my face without blocking my vision.


How it fits
Bought a size larger than I normally wear so I could wear it as a top layer over my heavy jacket.

Alaska proof and defnitely nice to have for any outdoor activity. 8/30/2018

Alaskan Approved 8/29/2018

Used this jacket recently on a very wet, cold, windy sheep and caribou hunt here in Alaska. Very impressed with it. I've owned many "rain" jackets...end up getting you more wet and sweaty than anything. Not the SEAK. Kept me dry and warm in combination with other First Lite layers. Dries out quick too. Buy once cry once!


How it fits
Designed to fit over layers, I'm normally an XL but got this in L due to reviews saying it fits larger and it fits great. I'd stick to an XL if planning on layering up thick but I wanted a more "athletic" fit.

You wouldn't get wet if you fell out of a boat 8/29/2018

This jacket is a tank. Its got the durability to withstand the brutal rainy seasons in the Pacific Northwest, while maintaining durability after busting brush all day long. The jacket is a little on the stiff side, like you after a double header of city league softball when you tried to be the hero. But just like you, I chalk that stiffness up to durability and quality.

I use this jacket all year long, from being packed for high country storms for September elk, late season blacktail with heavy rains, fall salmon fishing, into waterfowl season. This jacket handles it all and asks for more.

Best rain jacket I've worn! 8/29/2018

Fresh out of the bag and during the first couple hours of use it smells horribly of PVC. This mellowed out considerably after it's first hunt. You won't find better rainwear than the SEAK jacket. Wore through a deluge during CA deer season in the Klamath Mountains in the beginning of October. Stayed completely bone dry but never overheated.

Never leave home without it 8/29/2018

This was one of the first items I ever bought from First Lite and I couldn't be happier with it. It is waterproof, bombproof and worth the added weight (if compared to the Stormlight). Incredibly breathable. I actually look forward to the rain so that I have an excuse to use this jacket. This pairs perfectly with the cirrus puffy underneath if needed.

Fits great 8/29/2018

The fit and feel on this jacket are great. I was at the small end of the measurement range for my size and it fits just how I expected. Not to baggy but enough space that I can layer well for any temperature range. Have worn it in a light rain and stayed dry. Only reason for 4 stars is I haven't tested it in a down pour yet.

Backcountry hunting 8/29/2018

The SEAK stoemtight jacket rocks! I have used this jacket for two seasons of hunting Washington States Sawtooths and it has been a lifesaver. It vents to dump heat and breathes. You need to layer correctly and understand how hard to push yourself to stay dry. I would recommend this jacket to anyone wanting a bullet proof waterproof jacket.

Great Jacket 8/29/2018

Well built good fitting. Sleeves are long so that when arms are extended or raised under-clothing is not exposed. This is a great feature to prevent water from wicking up your arms. Side pocket are long allowing access to pocket with a pack waist belt on.The overall fit allows for a puffy jacket under with no restrictions. Lastly I really like the adjustability of the hood. It can be formed to fit so it keeps the rain out of your face but not obstruct my vision.

Great jacket 8/29/2018

Great, stylish looking jacket, had a few people asking where I got it from. Little bit disappointed in the waterproofing around the zippers though. Took it out the same day it arrived during the remnants of a tropical storm with driving rain. Didn't expect to have as much water leaking through around the zippers. Pretty extreme conditions though.

Excellent! 8/29/2018

Absolutely stellar Rain Jacket!

I recently Was pulling cards at our tree farm in Vermont and unfortunately the weather was atrocious. Rain the entire weekend. This jacket fit true and sealed up where it counted. It sheds water like plastic and feels like silk. I’ve had it for two years now and it’s not been treated very nicely tossed in the back of the truck, left laying on the wood pile & it’s taken it like a champ. Excellent all around rain jacket!


How it fits
Fits nicely- maybe consider a size up in colder climates for layering.

Amazing jacket 8/29/2018

My wife purchased this jacket for me for my birthday. I’ve used it a ton already - hiking and scouting. I’ve been in the rain and high winds and this thing has kept me dry and comfortable. It’s also surprisingly breathable in warm weather. I will likely use this as a sort of all purpose shell too.

Stormproof 8/29/2018

If you are like me, I am looking for any potential issues with gear before I buy it. So I am going to start with the cons.

The sleeves seems to be a bit long and bunch up a little more than I'd like, but I think I am going to put most of the blame on my body build. Also it is a little stiff in some areas more so than others. It will require a bit of breaking in.

Pros: Pretty much the rest of what I have to say is all Pros. It has been raining pretty much the entire month of August where I am in Alaska. Although I bought this jacket for hunting, I have been wearing it to and from work and around town as well. I've stayed as dry as a mouthful of Saltine crackers in a drought. And being that I have been wearing it as an every day jacket, comfort is key. The stretch on these jackets is only surpassed by spandex gym pants that are 3 sizes too small. Needless to say I feel free to move in SEAK Strormtight.

I originally got set onto this jacket by first purchasing the pants. I originally had the Boundary Stormtight Jacket (loved it) and had intended to get the matching pants. Once I saw that they came out with the SEAK pants, I bought those and took them on a Kenai Lake hunt for Black/Brown Bears. Loads of rain and water from the lake splashing. I loved the pants so much that I decided that the Jacket was next on the list. Oddly enough I had a little bit of a malfunction with my Boundary jacket (due to no fault by Firstlite) and that gave me the push I needed.

Which brings me to the customer service. Paul over there at Firstlite took awesome care of me and my situation. No need to go into full detail here. Just know that I was impressed with how he originally attempted to get me taken care of. He wanted to overnight a jacket to me so I could stay dry on my next hunt. The only problem was that I was leaving the next morning. So we agreed to figure it out when I returned. I optioned to upgrade to the SEAK with extra payment on my end of course, to make up the difference. And the rest is history.

I am heading out again in a few days for a 9 day Moose/Caribou/Sheep/Black Bear/Brown Bear hunt here in Alaska, and with the forcast only showing signs of rain and maybe some snow, I still have confidence that I will stay dry. So confident that one of my hunting partners was nervious about his gear and rush ordered a set based off of my experiences alone.

All in all, I highly recommend this Jacket and even the Pants to go with it. Make it a set so you don't have to get wet.


How it fits
Little long in sleeves. But I'm built funny. Other than that it fits great. If I had anything else to say, I'd say the it might be a little tight on the sleeves if Alaska cold weather layering is required.

Best Jacket I Have Ever Owned 8/28/2018

I live in British Columbia, I work outside, most of my hobbies are outdoor activities, i think it is safe to say I spend far more time out of doors than most. Work and/or play, I’m out there in all weather conditions. If you’re not familiar with British Columbia, well, it knows how to rain here. I’ve gone through tons of different rain coats over the years, Patagonia, Mountain Hardware, Arcteryx, Helly Hansen, you name it.... I can honestly say this one takes the belt with ease.

I did 7 days in a canoe on a river hunt in the Yukon last fall. 7 days of rain with temperatures just above freezing. And I was bone-goddamn-dry the entire time. The combination of merino baselayers, fishing waders, and this coat was perfection. I should have been miserable, but I was toasty, warm and dry. All day. Every day.

It’s done the fall, winter, spring, summer, and is now rolling strong into its second hunting season with no sign of slowing down. Flyfishing, hunting, walking the dog, snowboarding, shoveling the driveway,I even use it ski touring. I have used this coat for pretty much everything where you want an outer shell to protect you and it has no disappointed. The little technical aspects of this jacket are well thought out, from the hood and the pockets to the zippers and pit zips.

If you’re looking for to stay dry, this is your ticket, right here.

Absolutely the best rain jacket ever built 8/28/2018

The proof is in the testing! I wear this jacket in torrential downpours when I hike to work during the week. When I get to the office I'm 100 dry. While hunting wolves in the rain, or hunting turkeys in the rain the jacket does the job by once again you guess it...keeping me dry. I wouldn't waste my time leaving a review if a product wasn't good. The ways I use this jacket in new an innovative ways I would have to say would be to show it off in an office setting. People are bedazzled at the Cypher camo and they should be. I find the SEAK jacket does what it promises, and it's worth the purchase. I highly recommend it.

Great customer service... unimpressive performance 8/24/2018

I first ordered the stormlite as a light rain layer for the wet/hot days here in Hawaii. That jacket literally fell apart within a month (inner wall construction flaked off entirely and would stick to my skin, and did not keep water out in the slightest.) I emailed consumer service with pictures and they were very helpful and offered to upgrade me to the SEAK ultratright for a small fee. I was impressed with with firstlites willingness to stand behind their gear... however the new gear I received was not an improvement. Im not sure if I'm just receiving old versions of these jackets that fall through the cracks because its hard to believe this jacket holds up to heavy rains like a majority of these reviews are claiming. I just took my dog for a 15 minute walk in this jacket in light rain, when i came inside and removed the jacket my shoulders were completely saturated. I had all the zippers up and hood up as well. I appreciate the attempt at customer service firstlite...but I think ill be sticking with Sitka for the rest of my rain kit purchases. Aloha

Terrible. No trust in this rain gear 8/22/2018

I first purchased the storm tight boundary jacket and the first outing I got completely soaked in. I called Firstlite CS and they were shocked to hear about my claim. They requested I mail them the jacket and they would mail me out their new and improved SEAK jacket. I did along with some pics I took my my completely soaked shirt I was wearing under the jacket. I’ve worn the seak jacket out during a mild mist with no issues, however last weekend I was fishing in a walleye tournament in a down pour and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to test the seak jacket. At first it appears to shed water however my hands were cold so I unzipped the pockets and started placing my hands in them in between fish. After about 15 minutes I noticed my stomach area getting wet and cold. That’s when I noticed the pockets are made of mesh... are you serious... second jacket... soaked again. I’m just glad I brought my Cabelas guidegear jacket along as back up. I was testing this jacket out before my Yukon moose hunt in October of 2018. I’m glad I did as I would never trust this jacket with my life.

Dry, great fit, comfy 8/18/2018

Took this jacket and put it to the test on the tundra of northern Alaska on an archery Caribou hunt. This jacket held off all water and kept me completely dry despite the 24/7 rain nearly the whole trip. The only thing I wish it had was an internal cuff around the wrists to help ward off any rain that snuck in during glassing (though I suspect a good pair of gloves would help mitigate this issue - I don't care too much for gloves while actively hunting). Though not at light of packable as the other rain jacker offered by first lite, this jacket is worth the little bit of extra weight and will be coming with me on all future hunts where water is in the forecast

Tough Gear 8/18/2018

Live in Juneau, AK (think rain all the time) and took the SEAK pants and coat on a dall sheep hunt near Tok, AK. The gear was used and abused during some major bushwacking operations and I cannot find any rips or tears in the rain gear. The pants fit more true to size, the coat is a bit larger but works well with layers. I like the zippers on the coat and the pants. I would buy again (hopefully not soon) but I would get a neutral color and use as an everyday coat.

Caribou hunt north of the Brooks Range 8/7/2018

I received my SEAK top the day I was leaving for a 4 day hunt on the North Slope of Alaska. Once I saw that my gear I had ordered arrived, I immediately unpacked my ruck and repacked it with First Lite gear. 20 hours of driving later my hunting partner and I were thrown into the mix of rain, fog and a 20 degree change from where we started in Anchorage. This hunt required us to hike 5 miles through tundra to get to where we could start out hunt and the top performed perfectly. Kept me dry as we glassed valleys for hours and moved in wet tundra during stalks. The air vents are in the perfect places and the cut is exactly what I was looking for in a bowhunting situation. The cuffs are tight enough to keep rain out, but not constricting by any means. The pockets and hood design were well thought out and aided in us getting farther into the tundra while remaining dry and comfortable. I am extremely happy with my purchase and look forward to testing it on numerous Alaskan hunts in the near future.


How it fits
The fit is extremely well thought out. Nice and close to the body to allow for mobility and no excess bulk. It is the best rain top I have ever owned.

Warm, comfortable, dry 8/4/2018

I finally made the leap to a top quality rain jacket with this piece. Everything about it is great. The hood drawstrings allow you to get things cinched up and keep all water out of the jacket. The velcro cuffs are wide and comfortable - when you tighten the cuffs in the rain, the closures are wide enough so that nothing digs into your wrist and the velcro is soft side out so there is no loud rubbing or catching on gloves or other clothing.
The side pockets are a bit large to keep things tight to your body. I would like to see maybe slightly tighter pockets there, but the chest pocket is great.
The jacket is tough as nails. I have not worried for one second about branches, rocks, or anything affecting the jacket.


How it fits
I find this jacket runs a bit large. I'm about 6' tall, thin build, long arms, and the medium is pretty big on me. If I wear this over a couple other layers it is good but I do find it a bit wide and when I tighten the hip drawstrings tight enough, it ends up bunching and billowing a lot.

Awesome rain coat 7/29/2018

I used this jacket all during spring bear hunts and have not had any issues. It is a little heavy for keeping in a pack but I’d rather sacrifice a little weight to keep dry than anything less. Seems like it breathes really well. Plan on using it in September for elk season here in Wyoming. We tend to get some really wet snows in early September so that’ll be a good test for it.


How it fits
The jacket fits really well and true to size. So far all of first lites stuff has fit me really well. I am a fairly stocky build at 5’8” and 191 lbs and I got the medium jacket. There is plenty room under it for a puffy or some layering if needed!

Saved my life 7/28/2018

I originally had this jacket in brown and used it for skiing and fishing. Purchased it last fall from an archery shop in fusion for hunting, and I am so glad I did.
During our elk hunt in Oregon last fall rain turned from sleet to snow overnight and left our camp soaked. We loaded up our gear and packed our horse for the very wet and very cold pack 16 miles out of the wilderness. I threw on my seak jacket to stop the rain. By the time we reached the first summit it was a blizzard. It was great to be able to Velcro down the cuffs and seal out the snow and wind. The good kept close o my head so i could have full vision of my pack string as well as keep my wool hat dry.
The cold and amount of snow caught us by surprise and we had to stop numerious times to find the trail. With snow covered trees dropping heavy snow on our backs most “rain jackets “ wouldn’t have held up. But the seak held up to its tested name sake and was truly bomb proof for the harshest weather. I only wish I had the seak pants to go with it as the pair I had from another company stayed somewhat dry but not warm.
At the end of the trail my dad was wet and had early signs of hypothermia because is jacket didn’t stand up to the test.
Had we lost the trial and the weather stayed cold I am confident that I would’ve been dry and warm thanks to the seak.

Alaskan approved! 7/28/2018

If your looking for a bomb proof jacket that can brave any harsh weather thrown your way, this is the jacket for you. The 3.5 layers make it absolutely waterproof. Purchased before last hunting season hoping it could hold up to the crazy Alaskan weather. It did not disappoint. Jacket never got saturated and no rips or tear from brush busting the Alaskan wilderness. The jacket still looks new. Cant wait to wear it on my upcoming moose and caribou hunt. Nice job First Lite!!


How it fits
Order your normal size. Its a tad bigger then your normal size which allows for your base and mid weight layers.

2 Years of Wear 7/26/2018

Going on two years of wearing the SEAK jacket, it's about time for an honest review. I've worn this for almost every outdoor event and everyday occasion all over Alaska.

USE: This jacket has been through a Prince William Sound blacktail hunt in endless, driving rain; setting and pulling shrimp pots in (shocker) endless, driving Prince William Sound rain; skiing Alyeska; Arctic National Wildlife Refuge packrafting trip; open ocean fishing; moose seasons; salmon hooking and trout days. This jacket has seen it all and always delivers. I wear it year round and adjust with layers. Even on trips where bulk and weight are major deciding factors, I always opt to bring the SEAK.

WET THROUGH!: My SEAK has only wetted through after a day of shrimping that consisted of long exposure to constant rain and sitting in the zodiac during movement. At that point, however, the jacket had not seen a wash in over a year and was coated with all kinds of dirt, fish blood (which comes out very easily by the way), campfire smoke, etc. After washing with a rain jacket specific detergent and reapplying a wash-in DWR, the jacket is good as new. Key takeaway here is that any rain jacket, despite the cost, WILL wet through after extended use. It's just up to you to take care of it.

DURABILITY: This is a bomber jacket. I suck at skiing. Therefore, I fall. A lot. I jerry around wearing the SEAK, and it has proved to be great for skiing. It takes a hit well and doesn't show signs of wear. After two years of owning it I have one small area of slight abrasion. It is also a great shield of armor if you plan to spend any time in the Brooks Range or anywhere else inhabited by trillions of blood thirsty, bird sized mosquitoes. Seriously, they kill baby caribou. Get this jacket and don't be like a baby caribou.

COMPARISONS: Side by side, outperformed a Kuiu jacket during our blacktail hunt where for four days we received constant, heavy rain. All rain gear (even Drake) wetted through except the SEAK. The Kuiu started to show signs of moisture on the inside.

CHANGES: Please start putting a loop on the inside so we can hang these up! After another year or so of wear, I foresee the soft velcro on the sleeves starting to fray off.


How it fits
I'm 6' 175-185lb. Triathlete's build (sounds better than runner's build) and longer legs. Medium fits well, but starts getting tight with layers for obvious reasons. The length is great.

Best Waterfowl Jacket Ever 7/12/2018

Title says it all, I bought this in fusion for waterfowl hunting specifically. I wanted to wait about 2 seasons to see if it still held up to being waterproof after some harsh seasons. Yep, its bulletproof. All the seams and zippers are still waterproof. I cant say enough good things about this jacket. It does run on the large side which is great for duck hunting becuase I can layer very well underneath it. Thanks FL for making such a great product.

Great Jacket but could use an update 6/26/2018

I love my Seak, it holds up great to nearly daily use in south-central Alaska. It is not perfect however. I would like to see the sleeve cuffs changed to a more streamlined Velcro closure, the current system sticks out just enough to get caught up in fly line occasionally. I would also like to see the hand pockets moved a little higher to allow them to be used while a backpack hip belt is on. Other than these two small gripes, this is an awesome jacket and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is going to be out in the rain for more than a couple hours.

Durable 4/19/2018

I bough the jacket for a mid season backcountry elk hunt in Colorado. I didn't get the chance to use it in the snow hunting. I did use it shed hunting in the rain the last few weeks and it turned out to be very durable and kept me dry. It is not the most breathable if you're going to be really active. It still keeps you dry.

So Far So Good 4/16/2018

I just recently purchased the Seak Stormtight for an upcoming Alaskan moose hunt this 2018 Fall. This is my first First Lite gear purchase. Out of the box, I have some concerns about it’s durability secondary to how thin it is; albeit I know I’m sacrificing weight for thickness. I do question how well this garment will stand up to brushbusting. I have not taken it through any buck brush so I cannot comment.

Sizing is accurate. I normally wear an XXL with other gear and I am able to layer underneath this garment as I would others so that is a plus. The shooter’s cut is a good design. For others wondering about size, I am 6’2” and 250lbs with an athletic build.

I have done a couple of field tests in cold and precipitation. With proper layers, I floated a river quite comfortably in 12 degree weather for over 8 hours without getting any upper body chill. The wind was quite strong as well, but the jacket did a good job of cutting the wind, but I was wearing a wind stopper vest underneath which could confound my findings.. For my second test, I did a short hike in NW MT in nearly freezing rain. Other than moisture from sweat, my mid-layer was completely dry on the outside. It wasn’t pouring rain, but there was enough precipitation collecting on the jacket to show it clearly was a great barrier to moisture.

I like the adjustable cuffs. The zippers are tough to zip but they should be considering their waterproof design. I wish it was stuffable into its own pocket.

For now, I’d say it’s a pretty good garment. If, and when, I see 10 straight days of wind and moisture in AK, and I don’t get wet, I’ll sing my praises more and rate it a 5. For now, I need to test it for the elements it was designed for. I’ll re-review in October.

Exactly as advertised 3/9/2018

After a month of wearing my SEAK jacket in driving german rains, I've discovered that the SEAK jacket is exactly as advertised. The zippers are fully waterproof and I've had zero leak problems. I would recommend that the user always keep a base layer underneath because the jacket can get a little sticky from body moisture. In a solid color the jacket makes for a excellent everyday wear jacket if you're living in a rainy environment

Used this jacket this past weekend fishing the river during on and off rain showers. Stayed 100% dry!

I will defiantly explore more products offered by FirstLite this hunting season.

I wish my Work rainwear was this good. 1/23/2018

I’ve been using this since it came out. My first day wearing it I was cleaning my gutters on a day where we got 2” of rain in less than 24hrs. It kept me super dry minus the cuffs where the water leached in through my gloves. I have used it salmon fishing, hunting, you name it. I love it so much that I got my wife the women’s version in black so she can have a great rain jacket as well. One of these days I’ll get one in a solid color and get rid of some of my casual rain jackets that honestly don’t stand up tho this at all when it comes to breathability and waterproofness. Critical price of my system here in NW Oregon. I haven’t had any issues with the noise, if it’s raining I have it on, and haven’t had anything bust from me wesring it yet.

Rain armor 1/20/2018

My expectations for the durability of packable- breathable rainwear is usually pretty low, however I was really impressed with how tough this rain jacket is. I wore it all last season busting rain soaked brush in NW washington. It took alot of abuse and kept going while keeping me dry. The moment that will make this jacket forever my favorite is when I took a spill at the edge of a canyon and rocketed down a slope covered in icy huckleberry bushes. I slid on my back and side for a good distance while wearing the SEAK. I figured that was the end of my rain jacket, as any other of my previous jackets would have been toast after that slide. Miraculously there was no damage to the SEAK.

Best Rain Jacket 1/5/2018

To date this is the best rain Jacket that I have ever had. I hunted more this year in the rain then I ever have because every time I used this coat it out preformed my expectations. I seemed to find more rain and bad weather this year then I ever have in the past. While normally I try to avoid bad weather when hunting locally, when you go on trips you simply can not wait out the weather. Every trip I took this year from deer to ducks it rained and while in Idaho it rained 3 days in a row and I stayed dry and warm. Great Jacket, can layer underneath defiantly recommend for every situation from hunting to fishing.

Didn't get wet! 12/18/2017

Finally got to give this a try after two weeks of a high pressure system that produced nothing but sunshine.
Spent four excellent hours of being completely dry while it dumped a half inch of rain on me. The hood was great! Could spin my head around just find, wasn't noisy at all, could still hear the subtle feed chuckle as the hen mallard made her final approach as she swung around the blind. My lanyard went over the hood well with no snags and seemed to slide just fine.
This coat is light enough to be used in the summer while I am out on the saltwater in t-shirt weather or on a day hike.
If i had to make a complaint, it would be the size of the chest pocket. It would be optimal for me and my I phone 7 had the opening been a little larger by just an inch. I would also like an inside pocket.

Incredible Jacket! 11/28/2017

Nearing the end of a West Coast British Columbia hunting season and I cannot find a single negative about the SEAK jacket. I have used it as my primary outer layer in all weather types, but obviously where it shines is in the rain. Recently, I was hunting some high country Vancouver Island Blacktail deer in 80km/hr winds with slanting rain and snow. I removed the jacket at the end of the day to find my mid layer was bone dry! Several hunting days this year were similar and i cannot say enough about it's performance. 10/10 would buy again. If you're on the fence, run don't walk towards making the SEAK part of your hunting gear.

Solid Rain Jacket 11/23/2017

Tested this jacket extensively and it simply hates water... keeps you dry, breathes great, and just doesn't want to get wet. The material reminds me a bit of my breathable fishing waders in that it's completely waterproof and does not absorb any water whatsoever - this means it dries extremely quickly. Wore on an all day hunt with steady rain and 30 degree temps, had it paired with the First Lite rain pants. At the end of the day I was completely dry, but even more remarkable, after I took it off and gave it a few flicks it was dry and I was able to pack away in my suitcase. Normally you'd have to hang your rain gear to dry for several hours but not the case with this stuff. The only thing I'd change a bit is the narrow cut on the sleeves from the elbow down. I know they do this on purpose especially for the bowhunter, but you'll find it will compress your insulation layer a bit much if you're wearing this in cold weather. That being said, I bought this as a rain jacket not a cold weather shell so it's not that big a deal.

Effective but sizing was an issue 11/23/2017

I've taken this jacket out in rain and and snow. It performs flawlessly, and the design is well thought out. My only issue is with sizing. I fit large in every other first lite top I own (shirts, puffy jacket), but the large in this jacket is massive! Way too big for me, which is unfortunate. I realize it's meant to layer over other clothing but the difference should not be this huge. Make sure to size down from your normal size.

An essential piece for your hunting kit 11/20/2017

Being comfortable and able to withstand all of the elements increases your chances of success when hunting in the backcountry. This jacket is now a permanent part of my hunting kit up here in British Columbia and it has accompanied me on numerous hunts including extended trips in the Northern Rockies, to day trips here in the southern part of the province. It has saved me on many occasions, keeping me dry and warm in the worst possible conditions. Highly recommend this jacket as part of your kit along with the Boundary Stormtight Pants.

Great cut but the jury is still out on material 11/10/2017

The cut is great. Finally a rain jacket with enough room to layer but not risk string slap when shooting your bow. The hood adjustment is also superior. It's cut long enough to provide protection when seated as well. The material outside feels kinda like tent fabric or plastic bag. Compared to some other top end waterproof exterior fabrics this jacket is definitely louder, has more shine, and is less stretchy. Considering one of those fabrics is on a ski jacket i feel like the noise for northwestern archery hunting should have been a greater consideration. I understand quiet waterproof clothing is tough but I've had comparitively quiet waterproof layers for skiing as well as from another hunting brand i no longer support. Additionally for the price a waterproof layer with thumb loops would be great addition as well.

Best Jacket In Years 11/9/2017

This is Jacket is the best purchase I've made towards outwear in years. Fit's like a custom tailored piece of gear that is meant for the crappiest weather you can run into while in the outdoors. Hoods on a jacket are much like the second to the top button on a shirt. They can make it or break it and First Lite nailed it on this jacket. My only concern is how fast I'm going to wear this thing out as it's become my go to for almost all weather below 45F.

Excellent lightweight rain gear 10/4/2017

I've no idea what the metrics on breathability and water resistance mean but can attest this is the most breathable and waterproof rain shell I've ever owned. I've never looked forward to putting on a rain shell when I know I'm going to be on the move. They start to feel like a sauna and have to resort to pit zips to dump the extra heat. Well not the case with the Vapor, there are no pit zips but never needed them either. It's breathes so well you can be on the move during a downpour without getting uncomfortably hot. I always stayed dry underneath and whenever I hung the jacket up it also was dry. Water beads off this thing like a duck. The turret hood works great too, cinches in the right spots, moves with your head and doesn't interfere with your peripheral vision at all.

Saw a complaint that it's noisy. Yeah well what piece of rain gear isn't? Don't think there's any easy solution to this problem but if there were a way to silence the hood I'd be all about it. Thought about this while hunting in a snowstorm with the hood up. All could hear was the crinkle of the hood, sure I missed some bugles because of it. Maybe there a solution, maybe not, just thought it might be nice.

Excellent quality! 9/29/2017

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.

Outstanding 9/26/2017

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 8/28/2017

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 8/18/2017

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... 8/9/2017

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! 8/8/2017

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!

Awesome Rain Jacket 6/29/2017

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! 6/14/2017

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.

You won't find a better rain jacket 12/13/2016

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.

Awesome Jacket 11/18/2016

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 11/15/2016

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 11/15/2016

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 10/31/2016

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 10/17/2016

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.

Best Rain Jacket I've Tried 10/17/2016

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!
