Great fit, great feel and well-thought out placement of pockets and zippers. Liked it so well - that I bought a second in demo for bow hunting. Well-worth the cost. My son keeps trying to sneak away with it!!
Not an insanely big and warm jacket which is a good thing. You are able to move around in it as well as be plenty warm because of the wind stopping ability. I hunt in central Alabama and hunted with my core midweight zip-t and core midweight bottoms along with my stratus jacket and stratus pants in 30 degree weather and was completely comfortable.
Guys this Jacket works as intended. I live in South Bristol NY right by Bristol Mountain Ski Resort. I use the fanatic hoodie and the lightweight long sleeve mid weight top to layer in, and this jacket is good for sitting at anything over 30 degrees. This jacket was made with the bow hunter in mind. I am 5'7" and weight 190 and the large fits just perfect. I sat in some soaking rains and some good snow falls and this thing kept me warm and dry but with breathability built in. I love the snug fit and how everything from head to toe on it was built with a function. The hood has this awesome system built in to help you hear all around you with it fully pulled over your head. I will say the jacket is a lil warm for spot and stalk and if it was 35 or warmer walking in I packed it in for the most part. That being said, It packs very easily and can be put in an extremely small pack. I usually sit in my stands for at least 4 hours and love how quiet the jacket is. Having the ability to grab my bow and draw back silently is a blessing this jacket will give you consistently.
My wife had given me the Status jacket, pant and Celsius midi for Christmas this year and I had a chance to field test it on a bow hunt the day after. In my new gear, a couple light layers, the quietness and warmth was amazing with a temperature of 18° at sunrise! Skylighted, the Elevated camouflage kept me concealed for a 20 yard shot on this successful hunt.
I’ve owned a lot of warm clothing over the years that were half or even a quarter of the cost of Sitka gear but had less than stellar results. If I could give advise to a new hunter, invest in good clothing, you’ll be in the woods on cold late season days when others are home sitting around their fireplace.
The Stratus is really versatile and I think its best feature is that it is great at blocking the wind. I wear it many times just over a base layer. When temps drop, I like to layer the Stratus Jacket over an Equinox Hoody. If it is really cold I will throw a Fanatic Vest over the top of it. If you are looking for a jacket that has a wide range of uses then the Stratus is a great choice.
Great jacket! 6'3" 230 pounds and the XL fits perfect. Used it on a successful archery hunt in Kansas. The wind was brutal but this jacket kept me warm on the all-day sits. Above 40 degrees I used this jacket, below I used my Fanatic Jacket.
I absolutely love this jacket and would recommend it to anyone. I hunt in Wisconsin and this is the perfect fall jacket it keeps me toasty until it gets below 25 degrees. I have owned my jacket for about 6 months and it still looks the same as the day I bought it so I would say the durability is great!
This is my new go-to jacket for KS white tails. Extremely versatile for varying temperatures. Great as a stand alone jacket with a core hoodie when it’s warmer. When it drops in the 20s I just wear a fanatic hoodie and a Celsius midi and I’m extremely comfortable with these over my bibs. Love the new feature for changing out of the jacket without unhooking from the tree. Finally, I thought the grunt tube holder was going to be kind of gimmicky, but I actually like its placement. I highly recommend this jacket for a versatile piece of gear that can be worn on most days in the fall.
I own the earlier version of this jacket with the optifade forest pattern and this version. The old jacket is twice as thick and twice as warm as this one. I do like the new design of this jacket. It has the updated camo pattern which is great and the harness pass through however the jacket doesn't get me past 40 degrees. I've hunted in 20 degrees with the older version. It seems that the trend of all companies is to make lighter and thinner clothing yet advertise it as some miracle fabric that keeps you just as warm, that simply isn't possible.
I have the original version of this jacket, in the first iteration of the elevated I camo pattern. Absolutely some of the best money I have ever spent on gear. It still keeps me super warm and blocks wind like no other!
I bought this before the season started but now that I’ve used it out in the field, I feel I can provide some feedback. First off, I’m impressed. Missouri had a cold front come through with 35-45mph winds and of course I was in the stand. Other than being stubborn and not wearing a beanie because it’s not late enough in the season, I was really comfortable! The material is surprisingly quiet and comfortable and doesn’t restrict movement at all. Definitely worth the money. The only improvement for the pattern (in my opinion) is less white and more brown but it’s not stopping me from wearing or buying more. 5/5, very happy with my purchase.
I bought for this for CO elk hunting as well as midwest deer hunting. I purchased the Large and it fits a little larger than the Sitka Mountain Jacket which is perfect as I can layer up on colder days. Quiet, warm can't wait to use this season.
Received mine in the mail and is so comfortable lightweight that I know I'll be able to stand in the stand for hours on end and not get cold. So happy with the jacket 6'1" 260 and the 2 xl fits perfect! So happy I bought it along with the Stratus pants and base layers.
A few nice upgrades on the 2020 version of this jacket but they don’t tell you that they reduced the size of the front pockets. Previous versions of the front pockets almost reached around To the kidneys allowing for handwarmers or large items.
Love the new design, this is most definitely the best Sitka piece to have for an outer layer for whitetail hunting. Perfect for Virginia cold season where you just never know how cold and windy it’s gonna get. I’m 6’3” and 300 lbs stalky broad build and the 3XL fits your effect and allows perfect for layering with the Celsius midi jacket and fanatic hoody under neath.
