Wore it in sub freezing temps with a base layer and was warm. Fits snug and has a longer tail so you don't have to worry about it lifting up and catching a breeze while sitting. The hood with the facemask is amazing and functions really well. I wouldn't recommend it for much colder than sub 20f but this is perfect for fall or early winter.
The Equinox Hoody is the piece I tell my friends to try first when they are looking at Sitka. It is my favorite out of all the Sitka I own. It is extremely quiet and comfortable. The built in hood/facemask is awesome. I wear the Equinox Hoody pretty much all whitetail season either by itself in early season or as one of my layers as the season progresses.
Great product. Was in between this and Celsius midi but went with this for versatility as it can be a stand alone jacket or mid layer. This hoody can get me from early season all the way through rifleman in western PA. Only reason for 4 stars is the sizing. I wear an XL in virtually all Sitka gear but the XL was far too tight especially in the chest and armpits. Went with a 2XL and is nice in the armpits but a bit too loose elsewhere. Not a fashion statement but still great product and very happy.
I bought this piece last year and on the coldest days I wore just the Equinox hoodie with my fanatic bibs and stayed so warm with temps in the mid to low 20's. excellent piece and I look forward to wearing it with my stratus vest.
The only thing Sitka did wrong here was their website ratings: this thing is far warmer than the Equinox Jacket, and warmer than the Fanatic Hoodie as well, even though they rate them the same in warmth. The Equinox Hoodie is practically a jacket that doesn’t have WindStopper technology, and a few other convenience bells and whistles. On top of this, it’s super easy to layer under for hunting into the 40’s, or use as a mid layer itself under a Stratus or Fanatic. Easily my favorite piece I own so far!
Wore this plus a UA Base 4 on some coyote drives. It was 20° with wind chill in the single digits (or lower). Only thing that got cold was the exposed forehead. I wasn’t sure about this piece but my wife and kids got it for me for birthday. I’m a believer. Wow.
Nice piece, a little heavier than the lightweight Equinox jacket but less weight and more flexible than a Stratus jacket, which I go to when it is windy and in the lower 50s - and is a great jacket as well. This jacket fits perfectly in between.
Here in PA archery season can be 17 degrees one day & 50 the next. This Hoodie covers everything in between! Its so thought out and comfortable, It makes ZERO noise when you rub against a tree or your gear! The Hoodie and Face Mask can be used solo or together for complete comfort without hindering your vision. Its simply the best piece of gear I own.
Got my equinox hoody for mild weather and as an undergarment in cold weather. Gun season just ended and I used the equinox hoody and never needed a jacket. Super comfortable, warm and quiet. Only wish is that it came in a hoody and not only with a zipper.
