From early to late season the Kelvin Lite Hoody’s compressibility, temperature regulation, and Standard Fit make it our most versatile Insulation piece.  

The Kelvin Lite Hoody is constructed with a densely woven shell fabric to shear off wind and an open, more breathable liner for increased thermal regulation. The combination provides a thoughtfully versatile insulation piece that can be tossed on over your layers for protection while static or as a traditional insulation layer.  

Mapped Insulation
PrimaLoft® Hi-Loft Synthetic Insulation offers warmth without weight that is light and packs small. Delivering a puffier feel and a durable loft that will maintain its warmth for many seasons. Hi-Loft absorbs less moisture from the start while encouraging the passage of vapor to keep you from being cold or clammy. 
Polartec Alpha Active Insulation is employed in the side panels for additional mobility, comfort, and moisture management.

Just got one for Christmas from my son. I was always wearing his it’s a bigger camo one and I love it. But I didn’t want camo and he was able to get me a solid color from his store so I can wear it anywhere. I can’t believe such a light weight coat could be that warm. I live in one of the coldest places in Pennsylvania right now it’s 1 degree below zero wind chill and I’m comfortable with just a long sleeve T-shirt and a light flannel amazing.

Man, what a change from the last Kelvin lite jacket! This this is like wearing a soft pillow and fits like a glove. I will say, the cuffs took a little getting used to because they have more of a contoured fit but this will be my go to jacket for sure. Sizing wise I'd say this jacket runs on the slim side as advertised. Having said that, wearing anything more than a mid-weight or traverse like later will cause the sleeves the tighten up. This is a great piece for its intended use!

Should be able to give 5 stars. Primaloft synthetic insulation just cannot be beat, and the way Sitka incorporates it into their pieces is functional. The Kelvin Lite series has a place in every kit. I carry it everywhere from the Chugach Mountains scouting for sheep to the timber for Moose, and everything in between. The overall fit and hood are functional. This is a piece for everyone's gear kit.

I used the Kelvin Lite Hoody a bunch this elk season. It was the insulating layer that I packed 90% of the time. The warmth to weight ratio is really high on this piece, it also packs small and takes little space in a pack. Almost every time I stopped to glass, snack, take a break-I broke out the Kelvin Lite. It would be layered over a Lwt Core or a Lwt Core and a Hvywt Core. The hood is well constructed and adjustable- I've owned too many hooded garments that didn't have an adjustment for the hood- they have all been sold. Down makes for a great insulation piece, but often hunting involves wet conditions- in wet conditions I want synthetic- the Primaloft resists moisture much better than down while still providing good warmth for the weight. The Kelvin Lite Hoody has a found a permanent spot in my hunting pack. I'm probably going to spring the Kelvin Lite vest for early season hunts.

This was a fantastic addition to my gear. I was skeptical before talking to the people at Sitka. For such a thin and light jacket it really delivers. I wore it alone in moderate temps and under the Jet Stream for colder temps. It is a fantastic insulation layer piece. When driving an ATV to our spot the hood really came in handing to keep my neck warm and was fantastic when glassing with the wind at my back.
