Which jacket to go with the Obsidian in early autumn hunts?

Do they have one in similar material?

Depends on what you mean 'go with' ...

First Lite make a jacket/jumper hybrid (the Sawtooth), a soft shell (North Branch), a range of puffys, and two rain jackets.

None of these are the exact same material as the Kanab / Obsidian pants though ... they did once make a top layer out of the same fabric, the Chugach 'work shirt'. Some of us think it's the shizzle, and wish that FL would bring it back: it's quiet, stronger than standard interlock merino, can be partially opened with the buttons and no fear of zipper failure, and had a small amount of wind resistance. This shirt could be worn simply as a shirt, or as a very light jacket over other layers.

Maybe with Sitka's current line about 'with other brands, you're hunting in your underwear', First Lite will reconsider the need for a more robust shirt option, and bring the Chugach back to production.

However, in the current line-up, the closest you'd get in material is probably the Sawtooth - but you'd need to decide whether it would be too warm for your uses.

for early season I like the llano and the chama and then the halstead...for early season the layers work best. fl is releasing a sawtooth which could be used instead of the halsted and is bulkier...hope this helps

if you need help with first lite let us know and we will be glad to quote you out
