Out of numerous pieces of clothing at the 2014 ATA Show, the First Lite Sanctuary Treestand Jacket was one of the most impressive pieces of bowhunting clothing I saw. Made from First Lite’s high quality merino wool, the First Lite Sanctuary Jacket has been designed expressly for the late season bowhunter.
As a late season bowhunter I get frustrated with how noisy warm clothing can be. But, unlike most late season gear the outer shell of the Sanctuary Jacket is incredible quiet. No matter which way I rubbed or scratched the outer it was dead silent. Someone give these guys an award!

Not only is the outer shell quiet, but the inner is as well. This combination makes for quiet drawing of your bow no matter what the temperature. Designed to keep you warm without additional bulk, the body of the Sanctuary is insulated with 200 fill Cocona. The tapered sleeves are 160 fill Cocona and the hood is 200 fill.
With this technology and blueprint, the Sanctuary Jacket should easily keep you warm during those cold late season bowhunts. Kenton Carruth informed us at the ATA Show that he had recently worn the Sanctuary Jacket on a whitetail hunt where temperatures dipped into the single digits and the jacket performed flawlessly.
The First Lite Sanctuary jacket comes with interior pockets, waterproof zippers, a kidney pouch for hand warmers and baffled pockets for heat retention. It will be available in Realtree Xtra and ASAT camo and should be released June of 2014.
