Has any one gotten their hands on the hybrid sawtooth jacket and given it a run? Im interested to hear about it. I like the concept and I believe kryptek tried it a couple years ago too.

I have one. Haven't worn it much yet. Nice construction and fit though.

How does it compare, for wise, to other FL items in the same size, if you have other items.

I tried on sizing at Scheels.

I'm 5'6" 175 34in waist.

I fit into a medium just fine. Taller guys would want the L probably but try on prior to buying if able.

It's an interesting concept. More of a base layer look on the arms and on the bottom of the jacket. I am a L in all their stuff, L Sawtooth fit well

Do you happen to have a Large North Branch jacket? If so, does your large Sawtooth fit tighter than the North Branch or fit the exact same?
What about a Large Halstead or Chama Hoody, sawtooth fit the same?

I've heard different opinions on the fit, but not really a comparison between those pieces. My Hoody in larges fits a lot baggier and loose on me than my large North Branch. I'm just trying to figure out the fit and if I should order different sizes depending on how I decide to layer.

Honestly I'd just tried it on at Scheels when I was perusing thru there, so I can't effectively answer that for ya. I am going to assume the Sawtooth would be tighter, as it's more of a base layer/jacket hybrid. Would be a great outer layer for "chilly" elk mornings, or a great mid layer for insulation I believe.

One thing about it that will likely turn me away from owning one is the price tag. You can buy the North Branch or Unpronounceable jacket for like $25-50 more. Or have a top layering system for the same price.
