Specifically designed for whitetail hunters in an elevated position. Its macro and micro pattern configurations echo the higher contrast of bright sky against the shaded underside of foliage while allowing hunters to extend their season as the leaves change. It’s designed for engagement ranges of 80 yards or less and keeps the hunter undetectable at 15 feet up in a tree stand.
Excellent designed jacket! The Fanatic system is like sitting in a warm sleeping bag in the stand. The windstopper feature turned a below zero windchill into an enjoyable morning hunt. I was not a big fan of the mesh pocket in the front but I would rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it.
I hunt all over Wisconsin and sat in neg temps with wind over 20 mph and was not cold at all. Combined with the fanatic bibs, doesn't get any better. No more wearing 2 base layers with a vest, 2 sweatshirts and a jacket lookin like the stay puffed marshmallow man out there that can barely move. Should last a life time. I wear my base layer and fanatic hoody under it and I'm good to go. Only regret is not buying it sooner. Cant say enough about this set.
I would highly recommend the Sitka Fanatic Jacket for anyone wanting to be quiet, comfortable, and warm as a fireplace!!
Well made, extremely warm, and deathly quiet! Made to layer with other pieces when necessary, but with the way it performed, I found the layering was not needed. A built in hand warmer system is more than perfect for even the coldest days on stand!!
I bought this to pair with my Incinerator bibs. The only reason I did not rate as a 5 is that it is a little bulkier than I expected, but not so much that I don't wear it. Sheds cold in the MN winter and is very quiet. Love all the various pockets and hand warmer locations to be prepared when game appears.
This is the most effective, comfortable, functional cold weather hunting gear I've ever seen or used. Being an outfitter in Alberta, Canada there have been many opportunities to put it to the test and it didn't fail once. If you need to be stationary and quiet in super cold weather, just buy it. You'll be glad you did!
This jacket is worth every penny it's wind proof and warm. At twenty degrees i wear a fleece pullover and a tshirt and I'm fine. I had a problem with the zipper but sitka took car of it no problem. Customer care is outstanding .
This is it, the only late season whitetail jacket you need. The amount of tech built into this piece is mine boggling. Being the simpleton that I am I can tell you it meets the two requirements I had: it's not overly bulky like my older late season gear and it's comfortable to wear and shoot my bow in. You can wear this all day long in the stand or in my case, the saddle. This piece is worth the money for sure.
First set of high end hunting gear i have ever used. I sat for 4 hours in 15 degree weather with merino heavy base layers and fanatic set. I did not even get a chill. I was completely amazed. Can't believe I have hunted for 20 years without this. I was so impressed I got dad a set for Christmas.
This jacket is hands down the best piece of hunting clothing I have ever bought. I was on the fence about dropping that much money on one piece, but now that I have had it for about a month, I wish I had pulled the trigger long ago.
I have hunted in 20 degree temps with 15 MPH north winds and not felt a thing this is with a good base layer and the Equinox Jacket underneath. The design team for this really paid attention to details that tree stand hunters would appreciate. The rangefinder pocket is great and the thought behind putting a mesh at the bottom of the pocket to prevent the glass from fogging up is genius. The front hand warming pocket is also great for bow hunting as I can’t wear thick gloves. I feel like the quality of this jacket will last for years to come, so if you are on the fence about getting this I would say go ahead. It may be the last winter jacket you need for winter hunting for years, so the price tag will even out.
For reference I am 5’10” and 185lbs and the XL fit great.
I bought this in November, preparing for late season in Michigan and Iowa. To be fair, I haven't had "real" cold weather to test it in, mostly just in the 20's with 10-15mph winds. Regardless, this jacket, and bibs, keeps you warm, no questions asked. I was floored by how well "good gear" can perform in the cold elements. And the moisture wicking technology of the whole system is amazing to me. After I shot a buck, I didn't take the time to undress; we just went after it. By the time I got back to my truck, my outer jacket was soaked with sweat. It was crazy to me, as I had a baselayer, and the fanatic hoodie underneath. All systems moved the moisture to the outer layer. I was sweaty at the base layer, yes, but not until I noticed the outer layer had moisture in it. It had moved the sweat off my base, through the hoodie, and into the jacket, before I ever noticed I was sweating. I'm impressed, and definitely sold on Sitka.
HOW MUCH DID YOU PAY FOR THAT JACKET? Yep, and then I say how much did you pay for that bow? $1200. How much for those dozen arrows $120 - broad heads 80 bucks for 12. How much for that release? $60. That new drop away rest $120. New sight $198. Don't forget that safety harness $110.What I would say is, to keep this old bowhunters butt warm, and it does. It's worth every darn penny. It's the same with hunting clothing. This jacket is the warmest one I have ever worn for hunting, and made for bowhunters also. You pay for what you get. Could you improve it? Sure you can. But for now this one will do very, very well. Age 72 Bowhunting since 1987. 36 hunts this year. 110 hours in the stand. 9 hang on stands harvest one 130lb doe. I stayed Warm.
Very nice coat not bulky and recommend going one size up for a little extra room. This coat isn't deadly silent. It still makes noise so if you archery hunt on dead calm mornings or evenings this coat still has noise. I'm returning mine because its not quiet enough for me. Looking for dead silence.
Typical Sitka quality as far as the stitching and general build goes. It's a very nice "all in one" package and I've been able to eliminate the need to carry a muff which takes up space and adds weight when strapped to my mobile setup. I think removing the exterior fleece for archery purposes is a neat idea but I do also believe that it takes away warmth from the jacket too. I had no issues shooting with the previous version. It is certainly nice for the bibs since it really does work to get the burrs out easier.
A few improvement could be made. I am not a fan of the constant connect "feature". It is not well executed. Cold drafts flow right down your neck to your back when there's any kind of wind. If it was sealed better or there was more fabric to keep the warmth in maybe it would work??? It's harder to get this jacket on since the nylon inner sleeves of the previous version are gone and now it's the micro fleece that layers get caught on. There should be a hood option too, especially for the cost of this jacket. Last of all they took away the internal zippered chest pocket that was on the previous version which only leave the pouch pocket. All these are easy to fix and should have been incorporated into the build of this jacket. Seems like it's 2 steps forward and 3 steps back.
I really liked this suit. Unfortunately, it wasn't the right suit for me. It's warm and deadly quiet. It's the most quiet suit out there. The Joey pocket is great, and the hand muff pocket is great as well. All the magnets seemed to work very well. My only gripe with this suit, and the reason I returned it, was because it's NOT WATERPROOF. For 700+ dollars I feel like the suit should be able to be a one stop shop for the elements. If it's snowing or raining I have to start considering wearing a different suit that will allow me to stay in the stand all day. I understand that the lack of a waterproof layer is what makes this jacket so quiet. But there are a few other suits out there that check all the other boxes, including being waterproof that are only a few decibels louder that this. It's a great suit, it's just too much money for a suit that can't be your "go to" regardless of the weather.
I have used this jacket for the past two years. Great jacket for under 35 degrees. The pouch in the front is fleece lined and works like a muff. Kept me warm on all day-sits in 30 degree, windy Kansas archery hunt this year. Would recommend to anyone. 6'3" 230 pounds and the XL fits perfect.
I have had it for couple of months and fit and feel is great. Finally had some cold enough to wear and no disappointments. Very warm and comfortable and my favorite cold weather jacket I've ever owned.
First and foremost, thank you for your partnership with leo adventures; otherwise, I would have likely never had the opportunity to own this gear. My only regret in buying this gear is not doing it sooner. I hunted for years in cheap gear either shivering and wet or so layered up I could barely draw my bow. This gear is phenomenal. First morning I hunted was 28 degrees and couldn't keep the jacket zipped up because I'd start sweating. Highest recommendation on Sitka gear and especially the Fanatic bibs and jacket. And once again, thank you!
I highly recommend this jacket. It is built for the late season bow hunter but in my eyes has many more uses. Warmth is unbelievable and love the hand pockets . Deadly silent clothing just need to get the bibs now.
Game Changer. Always thought Sitka wasn’t worth the money. I now know. This jacket eliminated wearing layers of layers. Wind no problem. Deadly silent. Its sized to have something worn under it no need to size up. I wore Sitka fanatic hoody and another long sleeve under it. 15 degrees + wind no problems.
This jacket and bib combo is unreal. As everyone knows Sitka always exceeds expectations. That being said most items I can at least imagine improvements no matter how small they may be. Thats not the case with these items. I literally cannot imagine one improvement that could be made. It's better than I ever thought a hunting jacket could be. For reference I wore this with a core lightweight T, and the Fanatic Hoody and was more than comfortable in 15 degrees for hours on end.
I like this jacket for the most part, but there are some things I would change. The pouch pocket needs some work. I don't see the need for the mesh and the magnet is not near strong enough. If you bend over, good chance you are going to lose some things. Also, I'd like if they added a zippered pocket on the left chest (for the right handed version.) I also wish id had velcro wrists. Over time the wrist openings will get stretched out. Still wish it came with a removable hood too. I don't understand why they took that away.
Very warm, quiet and well thought out for bowhunting while in a treestand. Probably too warm for much above 35 degrees especially if you’re wearing the matching bibs. You will sweat with minimal activity. The price is ridiculous, but it does come with a lifetime warranty.
So I bought this thinking good thoughts with very little money. (Past) I have been using homemade gillie suit but this last year wearing this gear I walked up to two diffrent deer, I mean 10 ft. Unlike my gillie suit, when I stopped moving the deer would go back to doing what ever. With gillie suit the deer would always keep their eyes on me but with this, they turned their backs and walked around, even when shooting at both they only moved 10-20ft away from me great camo!!!!! (I now have a loan at bank for this camo)
What a great bow hunting jacket. It has enabled me to seat longer, and warmer. I really to the attention to a bow hunter in the zipper, shooting sleeve and the opening in the back for me safety harness. Well designed and very well made. Plus arrowed a nice deer this year. Thank you we are very blessed.
Wow is this a warm jacket! Anyone who hunts deer knows that a treestand is one of the coldest places on earth-- besides the cold temps during late season, there is also wind from every direction, and the stands are mostly metal. After a few hours it can be unbearably cold. The Fanatic line from Sitka solves the problem. I have had the vest and bibs for s few years but recently decided to go for the jacket and am I glad. It is quiet, too.
