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.
I have been buying, trying so many cold weather gear. For my wife, to keep her out for our 4 month bow season. Usually she would be done when the temperature dropped below 45 degrees. Yesterday it was a chilly 25 degrees with a 5 to 15 mph NE wind. She sat for 5 hours! Getting to see her first ever buck fight. As well as enjoying the time out. Today we will hunt the afternoon in dropping temperatures to 20 degree . Shes actually looking forward to the sit! I bought myself the same outfit. Seeing how much warmer she was. Truly a game changer! The suit (Bibs and jacket) allows the user to use less clothing. Pockets allow the user to hold essential gear. Zippers are quiet, while the suit itself is almost dead silent
I've been bow hunting for over 25 years and have always purchased gear that was on sale or off brand. I retired recently and treated myself to the Coat and Bibs.....by far THE BEST piece of hunting apparel I have ever purchased. Expensive but well worth the price. Did not need to do all day sits in November as I punched my tag in October but lent my Sitka Suit to a buddy at camp and he could not believe how warm it kept him. He will be purchasing one as well. A little bulky to pack in but well worth it. You will not get cold in this suit. Great quality and pockets and zippers are in all the right places.
As you would expect from Sitka, this garment is awesome. I do think the grunt tube and range finder pocket needs a little more work. Maybe the grunt tube side needs to be a little more sectioned off so the tube won’t want to fall into the pocket. Maybe it’s just an issue I’m having. The magnet definitely needs to be stronger. I can definitely live with it though. And would definitely recommend.
Is this expensive? Yes.. Is it worth it? Yes. I recently had a half day sit Temps in mid 20s and 3 inches of snow, I was wearing the long sleeve t shirt, heavy duty half zip t, and the fanatic hoodie with the fanatic coat on overtop. Never did I even get a chill. The only problem I had was not flipping up the collar when it started to snow. Once the snow started falling around my neck it melted and was wet, but not wet close to skin. (but that was my fault) other thing, don't think you can just buy the bibs and coat and expect to be warm, it's the system that works together that keeps the warmth in. This system isn't for everyone, but if you like to be out in the late season, and want to sit longer then think of this as investing in your future hunting experiences. I've never hunted must past Dec 15 because I can't stay warm much more than 3 hours, I know that will change this year.
Well thought out, quiet and warm. Only reason not 5 star is jacket is hard to get on while in stand already. It's a snug fit so if you like to layer bump up a size. I'm also not the most flexible person either so there is that too.
Just received this jacket and hoody 3 days ago. I started last night in Pa. woods light snow, high winds, 20 degree temp. I was so surprised these 2 items kept me toasty warm. Tonight weather was not as bad but still 26 degree working well. I was able to keep my hands warm by keeping them in my pocket. I can not believe the light weight of them compared to my old parka's. Now it is time to get some bibs and a warmer pair of boots. Sizing was great I am 6'1 267 lbs. and XXL was perfect with plenty of room. I trust Sitka as when they explain a product they sell it works!
This is obviously a good piece of gear, that I highly recommend for bowhunting, but there are a few things that are left to be desired in my opinion.
1. The rangefinder pocket should be a little lower; when wearing a bino harness, the mouth of the pocket is affected by the strap of the harness making retrieving your rangefinder less smooth than it could be.
2. Jacket should be longer. I don't have a long torso, and my lower back kept feeling the breezes in this jacket. It is cut oddly short, and the drawstring doesn't seem to cinch it down much. This isn't a problem with bibs, but certainly noticeable without.
3. The sleeves need to be lined with a satin like material as opposed to whatever is used. My merino base layers would stick,cling, and bunch putting it on--not all my layers have thumb holes which might reduce this issue, however, I do think they would "ride up" around your elbows over time. I don't usually wear synthetic base layers, this might not be a problem if you do.
