Completely re engineered for 2015, the Stratus Pant is part of our most versatile whitetail system. We’ve sandwiched the GORE® WINDSTOPPER® membrane between a wet-printed Micro-Fleece shell and a micro grid fleece backer, creating the quietest 100% windproof pant.
Built with GORE® WINDSTOPPER® laminate and micro-grid fleece insulation, the 2015 Stratus Pant holds in heat without bulk, keeping you in the stand through the long middle part of the season. Silenced by a wet-printed microfleece outer fabric, the pant allows you to move quietly to and from the stand.
Articulated patterning gives you a comfortable fit for the seated position, and frees your legs for a complete range of motion. Thigh cargo pockets with silent snap closures put the necessities close at hand, while the built-in belt allows you to fully customize the fit at the waist.
"To me, the Stratus Pant is the best pant for hunting whitetails during the rut in the Mid-West. The WINDSTOPPER® laminate helps me stay warm with less bulk, and the brushed outer surface is very quiet. The limb tip pocket on the inside leg, at or just below my knee, is an essential feature I use to help support my traditional bows while remaining motionless with an arrow knocked."

Absolutely superb! When it's all about reducing bulk, and increasing warmth, this is the way to go. Perfect mid season pant. Way warmer than the weight would suggest. Love the quite buttons, pocket placement, integrated belt, and overall fit. You're going to need a wind indicator wearing the stratus set, because you won't be able to feel which direction it's coming wearing these. ZERO wind penetration makes these a must have!
I used these pants throughout the entire Iowa bow season last year. Incredibly versatile. I started out with no base layer underneath for the early season but as it got later into the season, I layered up with the core heavyweight bottoms underneath and that was enough to take me through November and early December. Pockets are tapered well to not snag when walking through the woods and have a silent snap. Surprisingly durable too. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a pant they can wear all season
These will be my go to pants for mid to late season. They're comfortable and well thought out. Love the leather spot to clip my knife on the pocket. That will help these pants last much longer because I always wear a knife. The only issue I have, and this is the reason I deducted 1/2 a star, is the sizing. I am a consistent 32" waist, so I ordered a medium tall. That should range from 31-33". Well they were just too snug.
For me, the new Stratus pants are a vast improvement over the old version. These seem to be lighter and just as warm as the old version. I was happy to see they removed almost all of the lighter polyester type material that was on the old version. The briars loved that stuff. Never used or cared for the boot gaiters on the old version either. Really like the fleece backing in the cargo pockets. I hunt from a tree saddle much of the time. I can stick my hands in these pockets to keep them warm when chilled. Really tough to use the Kangaroo pouch on some other items hunting from the tree saddle. I do not care for the belt they include with all the newer style pants. Especially, on these. It just does not function well. The old Bomber belt works great with them.
Purchased the next to skin undershirts along with the Stratus Pants and Jacket. Everything was sized in XL and fit me as expected. Not tight but close and comfortable. Except for the jacket which I mistakenly ordered in 2XL. Turns out with all the layering the 2XL fit well on the arms but a little baggy in the middle. Long story short, I went out this weekend in 29 Degrees and sat in treestand with no issues. I was warm all day and it allowed me to stay out when others went back to camp to get warm. This resulted in my first ever Whitetail Buck, 10 point on the ground! This system works and I won't wear anything else. Matt North Alabama
I submitted a review on the stratus jacket as well, this system is amazing. I called Sitka for some guidance and fit questions. I am not a skin and bones man and like my gear to function together and work for me. The stratus fit allows for nice layering if you need it and still keeps the function. The set is great so far this year with temps into the 20s. I run a little warm so once it gets above 45-50 I usually switch to the Equinox system. The folks at Sitka put a lot of thought into the gear and it shows. I view their gear like I do my bow and rifles. You get what you pay for and good stuff costs money and great stuff a little more. I have gear from all their collections and have not been disappointed once with the gear or the immaculate customer service.
I was hesitant in paying so much for a pair of pants, but I'd do it again after wearing these bad boys for a few hunting trips. I'm a big guy and hunting pants almost never fit right...these were perfect! The comfort of sweats...but a badass look and great construction...highly recommend!
These have been my go to pant for the season so far with over a dozen sits in them. They fit very comfortably and are very warm for there weight. The Stratus wind stopper membrane cuts the wind very well, making these pants really shine. I have worn them down into the low 30s so far paired with a light baselayer on most days and the heavy weight bottoms over the light base layers on colder mornings. The new fleece is also very quiet as well. In conjunction with the Stratus jacket, Fanatic Hoody, and the ability to add the Shacket underneath the jacket, I will not have a problem wearing this suit into the low 20s before switching to the Fanatic Suit. In fact I will probably be selling the Fanatic to pick up the Incinerator, because the Stratus covers a very large range of temperatures and overlaps well into the Fanatic temperature range in my opinion.
Bought the Stratus set. Tried it on and everything fit like a glove. Can't wait to test these great gear this season.
