"Heat Retention "
I'm always skeptical of cold weather gear mainly due to either the mobility issue with bulky clothing or the clothing itself not actually retaining heat. Where I hunt we can see 30-40 degree temperature swings in a single day. The Aegis system and the jacket more specifically, allows for heat retention but also is warm enough where I might not need to add multiple layers underneath it allowing for better mobility. Definitely recommend to other midwestern hunters.
Keeps me warm an dry. I Ordered wrong size and they were prompt in excepting returns and sending out replacement size since I sat around and got fat .
"Exactly what I needed. "
After purchasing a jacket from First Lite, I realized it wasn’t near what I needed for Ohio deer hunting. I needed something insulated. Badly. I picked up this Aegis jacket and boy howdy. Did that do the trick. This thing is like a furnace. You walk outside into the freezing cold winter and you can’t even tell you’re outdoors. I can only imagine how hot you’d get walking around or hiking up hills in it so I’d say this piece would be best for those tree stand sits when the wind is whipping and the snow is flying. Makes me want the bibs now too. Definitely recommended!
"Should have purchased long ago"
Just spent a full weekend here in Montana putting the Aegis Jacket and Bib through the paces. Sat on a hillside overlooking a valley in 19 degree temps and 27 mph wind for 6 hours. 11/8/2020. Wore the Hoplite Merino Top and Bottom and a very lightweight fleece top under the Aegis set. That’s it! The only thing that was cold during that 6 hours were my toes. Basically sat in a snow bank the entire time and not once did I feel the cold from the ground nor the wind. Never wet either. Against what Kryptek says, you can hike in them. I walked short of 3/4 mile to get to where I was going. The first 300 yards I was burning up. HOT. I just opened up the leg zips all the way, unzipped the front and opened the pit zips and the heat just dumped. Immediately cooled down. This set is exactly what Kryptek say it is. Ive spent so much on every “big” brands gear buying just about every piece each offers. I’ve struggled to find anything that would actually keep warm without 5 layers and not costing a cool $1300. This is it. Zippers function perfectly without any snags, or catches, they’re waterproof, it’s quiet, and so on. I should have purchased a long time ago. I’m 5’11 190lbs. Large Jacket fits perfectly with 2 layers underneath and medium bibs with 1 layer was perfect. (Wear 33” waist in Jeans). This is a must for cold weather!
"Unstoppable in the cold "
My favorite cold weather jacket ever. Become unstoppable in the cold, snow and rain coming in sideways, the Aegis system has delivered extreme excellence and won’t give up on you those horrible days out in the field. I’ve owned my Aegis jacket for years now and I’m so impressed I had to buy one for my wife so she would be comfortable in her late season elk hunt in northern Idaho. This system is so quiet and comfortable it’s incredible, Athletic fit is amazing and reduces bulky layering. I fully recommend this system to anyone who is tired of always being cold out in the field. Thank you kryptek for another excellent piece of gear.
"Aegis jacket and bibs"
Best cold weather jacket and bibs I have ever owned in 45 years of hunting. True to size athletic fit, warm, wind and water proof. Lightweight and breathable .
Purchased this jacket as a Christmas present for my son. I am extremely happy with how warm , quiet and light weight it is. Very well thought out with thumb holes in inner sleeve to keep your wrists protected. The camo pattern makes him nearly invisible in both his tree stand and goose blind. Would highly recommend to any deer or waterfowl hunter looking to stay stay warm and dry
"South Dakota winter"
I had a hard time making this purchase because there is no place in my city that carries this series. First what I am replacing, my previous gear I purchased about 18 years ago, so it’s old stuff. Now to the new stuff, first hunt the high was 8 with no wind. I had on a tee shirt and the coat. I did some walking and sitting, didn’t sit for long though. I was warm but I wasn’t hot. Second hunt the high was 5 with about 15 mph winds, so it felt like it was like -11. I did wear a base layer and a shirt and I was fine. The wind proofing works awesome. I never felt any wind at all. The 3rd hunt, it was 15 with a minor wind and it was snowing. I did more sitting than walking and I was sitting in snow. Again I was fine, didn’t get wet at all. I really like the zippers. They are sealed very well. Some other details that I didn’t know that I like is the zippers have like a cover they zip up too, I really like that because it prevents them from rattling around. I’ve never been a huge fan of hoods but with how wind proof it is, I am always wearing it. It also has a pull cord on the back that snugs it tight from the bottom back side of your neck, up over your ears then to the top. It helps hold a hat tight around your head. It also has the thumb slits on the liner inside the cuffs, it has them, it doesn’t bother me nor do I plan on using it because if I’m wearing this gear then I will have gloves on but I never knew it had them. All I have to say is that if you are thinking about getting these. Just get them. I paired them with the bibs and the Gyes gloves and they are awesome. I can’t say enough about these and I am really glad I purchased.
Great products, EXCEPT I don't know who you size for (models, Olympic athletes???) but I have learned to order at least one size larger than normal to get adequate fit. Us hunters are "real" sized people. Please size so that our normal sizes fit.
