Great product - would give 5 stars but the fit just isn't quite perfect for us taller skinny guys. Wish they made it in a medium-tall so I didn't have to order up and get the large. Otherwise, great hoody!
Good hoody, just not five stars. Fabric is warm and quiet, working as a midlayer under my Stratus or as a daily wear item. Quickly becoming my go-to hoody. However, the hoody doesn't have hand pockets, which is slightly unnerving and the reason why it can't get five stars.
Heavyweight Hoody works perfectly with the Sitka Layering System. Depending on the weather, this hoody goes great over the Core Lightweight Hoody. I have the Subalpine, Open Country, and a couple solids. Thanks Sitka for listening, and adding other hunting solid colors.
The Heavyweight Hoody is my favorite Sitka product. As a guide and wildlife officer I wear my hoody throughout the year. In back country camps, I rarely take it off. Its a super underlayer as well as a great light shirt. The hood is awesome extra insulation for long hours glassing, on horseback or running boats.
I own three of these and primarily use them as base layer for cold weather (under 10 deg F) pheasant hunting. Hood is great in windy cold conditions and pull down as conditions improve. Also use as a base layer fishing on cold days. Hood is perfect when running between fishing locations. For those wondering about fit....I'm 6'1", 200 lbs with long torso, and prefer a loose fit. 2XL is a perfect fit for me.
Got this, because I love my core lightweight goody so much, but needed a bit more warmth and this delivered. It is everything I was hoping for when the weather started getting colder. I can hike just in this and stay plenty warm and just have to throw a puffy over it when glassing and I stay so warm. This is a absolute must for cold weather hunting.
I was very impressed at the warmth to weight ratio of this piece. It is very lightweight, but the channeling in the insulation works well to trap body heat and the outer material blocks the wind quite well. The fit is a bit on the larger side, especially in the trunk and waist which is a bit baggy compared to other Sitka pieces.
Like I said in my review of the Kelvin WS hoody, I can't decide which of these is my very favorite piece from Sitka. It could very well be this one. The warmth to wight ratio boggles my mind. It is very soft and very warm for what it is. With a Merino wool base layer under the heavyweight hoody, it can probably get you through 90% of your hunting season. It wicks moisture very well and does not hold onto scent at all. I can't say enough about it, I like it so much that I plan on getting another one just to have. Very pleased.
Unbelievably comfortable. I bought this in every color, because I liked it so much. I can wear this in almost any temperature . Perfect mid layer. Very packable. I can’t say enough good things about the hoodie.
Awesome and warm. This is exactly what I wanted from a “mid-layer” hoodie. Perfect thickness and warmth without being bulky. Long tail in the back prevents that funky ride up when wearing waders. Overall, well worth the money.
