The 2015 evolution of our flagship whitetail jacket is quieter, warmer, and more refined. A Berber fleece face silences the GORE® WINDSTOPPER® barrier, while body-mapped Primaloft® Silver Insulation traps body heat right where you need it. Our innovative diagonal-zip design seals out the wind, while the zippered front muff keeps your digits toasty. A magnetic closure rangefinder pocket, safety harness pass-through port, and internal gasketed cuffs finish out this deftly honed tool.
For 2015, we reimagined the legendary Fanatic Jacket and rebuilt it thread by thread, creating a tool that’s both warmer and quieter to give you the edge on November’s cold and cutting winds. At its core, you’ll find body-mapped 133 g/m2 and 60 g/m2 PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation that traps heat right where you need it, shielded by a 100% windproof GORE™ WINDSTOPPER™ membrane. A thickly piled, hydrophobic berber fleece face fabric silences the exterior.Articulated patterning eliminates bulk and frees you up to move, bend, twist and draw. The full-length diagonal zipper seals out the wind, while the built-in insulated hand muff keeps your digits toasty and your arms relaxed. Strategically placed pockets make for easy access to your rangefinder and grunt tube, and the safety harness pass-through port keeps your attachment point comfortably in position.
“The Fanatic Jacket addresses a problem that most bowhunters face as the temperatures fall: keeping your hands warm, while still wearing a thin glove. Sitka solved this by using an innovative side zip allowing the addition of a full kangaroo pocket. Great range of motion, all the features I need, but most of all the warmth of Primaloft® keeps me in the stand. Plus, I still get amazing range of motion. The Fanatic is a must-have in the colder months and I use mine all over the midwest."
- Sitka Athlete Jeff Simpson
Have been wearing the old Fanatic system for over two years now and just upgraded. How can you deny yourself the newest toy when its predecessor was the most amazing system ever made for a hunter. I hunt on the Leelanau Penn of Michigan; where the weather can go from amazing to freezing in an hour. This has proven to be the only consistently performing outer wear I have ever used. MI is a huge bow hunting state; and it gets brutally cold early in the season. Before Sitka no other company offered the heat retention you need paired with the "bulk free" dynamics bow hunters want. MI bow hunters were either bulky and clumsy or streamline and frozen; now I have both. I agree with many the cost is up there; but you cannot put a price on warmth and comfort when out in the woods. And if its your joy; spend some money on and enjoy it!! I think I speak for many people that hunt in areas where you can have 15 inches on opening day of rifle season; what about a white pattern. I know a lot goes into R&D for the patterns. But nothing would be better than an over sized white shell to throw over a Fanatic series when the snow kicks up and ground hunting becomes critical and sitting like a brown brush in a white field is not ideal. Either way keep it up; and keep sending the goods down to the customer!!!
Sitka has really changed the game of hunting with this jacket. No more leaving the stand to go to the truck or camp to get warmed up, this jacket is like a sleeping bag. All the warmth gets trapped and you stay toasty all day. Killer coat & very recommended!
SITKA HIT A HOME RUN AGAIN WITH THIS JACKET. I LIKE THE SAFEY SLOT FOR THE HARRNESS, NEW CAMO, WIND STOPPER KANGAROO POCKET
I couldn't agree with Robert any more, we need like 10 stars for this jacket!! I hunt primarily in Appalachian mountains, typically we see 0-20 degree weather during the rut and this jacket is PERFECT for this weather in my opinion. All day sits, you need something that's going to keep you warm for when you sitting their motionless before the sun comes up or those late November evenings when the temperature start to drop. This jacket helped me stay in my treestand all day to kill the biggest buck i have ever taken with my bow. Thank you Sitka for such a great product!! M.I.-BBSK
