The 2015 evolution of our flagship whitetail bib is quieter, warmer, and more refined. A Berber fleece face silences the GORE® WINDSTOPPER® barrier, and 133 g/m2 Primaloft® Silver Insulation traps in body heat. Rubber boots fit comfortably over the low-bulk hems, where a dedicated ankle pocket lets you rest your traditional bow hands-free. Lined hand pockets keep your digits toasty when used without the jacket.
- 100% Polyester Stretch-Woven
- Wet Print Berber Fleece
- Two Way Front Zip
- Adjustable Waist Bands
- Full Side Zips
- Zippered Hand Pockets
- Safety Harness Pass Through
For 2015, we reimagined the legendary Fanatic Bib and rebuilt it thread by thread, creating a tool that’s warmer, quieter and more comfortable, giving you the edge on November’s cold and cutting winds. At its core, you’ll find heat-trapping 133 g/m2 PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation, shielded by a 100% windproof GORE™ WINDSTOPPER™ membrane. A thickly piled, hydrophobic berber fleece face fabric silences the exterior.
Full side zips make for easy on and off, and allow you to dump heat on the walk to your stand, or as the afternoon sun thaws the woods. Articulated knees keep from bunching in the seated position, while rubber boots fit comfortably over the low-bulk hems. Zippered hand pockets safely cache your necessities, a dedicated ankle pocket lets you rest your traditional bow hands-free, and an adjustable waistband lets you customize the fit. With intelligent underlayering, you’ll stay engaged and deadly through the frigid end of many seasons to come.

I went out in 20 degree weather today and did exactly 10 hours in one of my blinds. I wore a UA base layer (all I have right now - use them for motorcycle riding but will be getting merino base layers next) underneath a pair of Equinox pants, and then these Fanatic bibs. Up top I wore another UA base layer (again all I have on hand - can't wait to replace them with Sitka products for hunting!) , a wool sweater, a Fanatic Lite jacket, and a Fanatic vest over top of it all. I was not cold at all. Replacing the UA stuff should allow me to forego the UA stuff and keep the Equinox pants for early season weather only, which they are designed for. I have an Equinox jacket and it is great too. As far as size goes, I am 6' and 235 pounds, and I bought 2XL in everything. I can layer at will, and the Fanatic bibs and vest are top-notch, as are all my Sitka products. One thing I really like is they are very quiet. My rubber-coated binos do not squeak on them when they rest on your chest and you move like some clothing does, which has scared deer away before while I was hunting. So that is a good thing. As others have mentioned, the fabric does attract burs, so if I'm going into that type of area I carry them in strapped to my Toolbucket pack and put them on once I get to my tree or blind, whichever I am using that day. One last thing - it was raining on the walk back out of the woods about 15 minutes) and I did not feel any wetness at all. I did notice it was beaded up on them so the water repellency is pretty effective.

I'm not one to write reviews but after all the research I did and reviews read by others, I felt I needed to share my experience with Sitka. The fanatic series jacket and bib was amazing!! Conditions were 22 degrees, 15-20 mph wind and snow in the mountains of NY. I spent an entire week in these conditions and have never been so warm! I simply followed the layering system, and wow! I had Core lightweight shirt, heavyweight zip-T, fanatic hoody and fanatic jacket. Bottoms I only wore heavyweight bottoms and fanatic bibs, fanatic hat and neck gaitor. This set up was perfect! Thank you Sitka!

Warm, Warm, Warm and as quiet as you can possibly get in a windproof, fully insulated pair of bibs. Pocket placements are fantastic and full length zippers allow you to put them on over boots and also easy heat dump. They are a magnet for anything sticky so I usually pack them in to my stand and put on at the base of my tree.

Great bibs! Comfortable to wear, and I really like the full side zips to vent heat. They seem bulky at first, but the feeling quickly disappears with wear. Quiet and warm, but I held back a half a star wondering about durability of the fabric. Really did not have a chance to wear them much this last season.

I just returned from a bow hunt in Western Kentucky with several days of temperatures in the low 20's with wind chill numbers in the single digits. These bibs, combined with my fanatic jacket, were awesome! I was never cold. The beauty of the fanatic line of gear is the incredible warmth without the bulk. I could comfortably draw my bow in all weather conditions. If you do any late season hunting these bibs are a must have.
