Product is Performance Fit, designed for minimal layering.



Why We Made This

Waterfowl hunters were in need of an insulating jacket that could be easily layered into a system and would fit comfortably into waders. Our approach was to capitalize on the wind-killing properties of GORE-TEX® INFINIUM® WINDSTOPPER laminate while maximizing heat retention and mobility. To keep that heat, we used PrimaLoft® Silver insulation for its high weight-to-warmth ratio, reducing bulk in the upper torso and sleeves. A high-pile Berber fleece was used in the lower torso for layering inside waders or bibs. This ideal combination of GORE™ face fabric and PrimaLoft® insulation was in an effort to maintain core warmth, maneuverability, and ease of layering.

I’m 5’10” and 165lbs and have a medium. It fits well but snug, which allows for good mobility. I would heavily recommend this item for very cold and windy days. I would caution that this item is much warmer than it appears. I’ve had many jackets where you can simply unzip once the sun rises and you are comfortable. The duck oven will remain quite warm, and if your temperature rises a bit you may need to be prepared to strip a layer.

My wife bought me this jacket and the pants for Christmas. On Jan 2, 2022 the freak snow storm hit Virginia and knocked out our power. One night it got down to 16 degrees. I used this jacket and those pants for nearly 4 days straight to basically survive the cold. This jacket is phenomenal and I cant say enough good things about it. I worked outside cutting trees off the road in this and had to open it to let the heat out. Sitting in my house at night in 40 degree weather, I was as toasty as if nothing was happening. If it wouldn’t have been for this set, I don’t think I would have been nearly as warm as I needed.

Look no further! If you are looking for an insulation piece to build your Sitka System(s) off of, then this is the jacket for you. I have been using this jacket for a whole season, so I thought now is a good time to chip in my 2 cents. I currently run this jacket for a majority of our duck season in Oklahoma, and then as a late season insulation piece of all my sitka systems. I just layer over top either a shell of Subalpine, Elevated-II, or another marsh outer-piece. It works great whether you're in the pit or in the tree stand. I can't recommend this jacket enough!

5'9" 185lb. North Dakota.

Large- Fits very well

Temp Range Comfortable- Inactive 20s-50s, Active 0-30s (Wind/Precipitation dependent)

Camo (Marsh)- I have laid in the middle of my decoys with no blind or other cover in cut fields and birds still came no problem.

Durability- I am not careful with my hunting gear as it is a rugged activity and the gear should be able to deal with it. Have noticed no wear or damage to this product after heavy use.

Duck oven is a constant in my waterfowl system. Very well made and effective at keeping you warm. Thumb holes make it super easy to layer over it and act as a half glove with full dexterity when your hands might be a tad chilly and you are not a fan of wearing gloves while shooting..

As an outer layer paired with the heavy merino half zip I have been comfortable on mid twenty degree days laying in a blind and walking for pheasants I have been comfortable down to the single digits. (No precipitation)

Other Sitka products I have layered under it comfortably
-Merino half zip
-Core midweight zip

Layered over it comfortably
-Dakota Hoody (To shed snow during active precipitation)
-Boreal Jacket (Easily warm laying in a blind in low single digits windy weather with snow)

Also works as an every day jacket heading into town or work. Have worn deer hunting with a vest effectively.

I just bought this jacket. Honestly, everything that I bought from Sitka has been amazing. I'm more than happy! in fact, I just spent a ton of money last night buying more things. I do struggle with the sizing because it feels that i'm between a med and a large. I first ordered the Med because I went by the sizing chart. However, it just felt too small so I ordered a large. The large fits good but I wear the med in the Dakota vest. I'm 6ft about 180. Something that I might have messed up on that might help you out. I was leaving for a hunting trip and I didn't have time to send the Med jacket back and get the large jacket in time so I just paid for the large and I was planning on sending the med back when I got home. Plus I wanted to compare the two side by side to make sure I got the right one. When I emailed Sitka about my return, they sent me an email that the product needs to be return within 10 days after receiving it or they could decline it. I did write them on facebook before I ordered the large and they didn't say anything about this. I'm about 13 days so I'm not sure if they are going to reject it. My hope is to just exchange it for the Hudson jacket. I hope to have no problems because i'm in love with their product. Honestly, I'm not expecting any problems because they seem to be an amazing company but they have their policies. I will update this to help everyone out so you don't make my mistake.

As a woman, though, I wish you made a women specific Duck Oven as the sleeves are a tad long, but it is totally doable.

Warm in all the right places and the chest hand pockets are nice to have - wish these were lined like the regular pockets, but I'm being picky as this jacket is already awesome.

Fit: 6'0 160# and Large fits perfect for me. Even with a baselayer, logo hoody, and the dakota vest underneath I still had plenty of room to move about.
Use: Bought for a South Dakota trip where temps were supposed to be 20s and 30s and for general use in Missouri after it chills off.
Pros: Plenty of mobility and has room for layering. It was plenty warm for the SD trip even with a 10mph wind from the N. Pockets are super warm to start and throw a hand warmer in them and you are set.
Cons: Too warm for physical activity. If you are going to set or move decoys I would highly recommend taking it off. I made that mistake and got cold because I started sweating.

If you are on the fence, just buy it! This is the warmest jacket I have ever put on. I get hot with minimal layering in temperatures down to single digits in Kansas. I did not want to like Sitka or the jacket because the cost. From the time I tried the jacket on it was a fit. It feels like a warm fluffy cloud. It is like putting a jacket on out of the dryer.

I have owned multiple drake jackets and served in the army for 20 years. This is the best jacket I have ever owned.

I wish it had a draw string or something to keep the wind out while wearing a T shirt. Yes, it is so warm most days you will have to wear a shirt under the thing to not burn up. This is on 20-30 degree days. It will let some wind through the bottom and this is my only complaint.

I have used it on occasion as an outer layer while goose hunting and can recommend that as well.

Bought my duck oven for the 2019 duck season. I must say it’s the best jacket I’ve ever owned. The main reasons I say that is because it’s warm and slim fitted specially in the arms, I ran Drake jackets for the past 3 years and my gun stock always got caught in the arm pit area. This jacket didn’t have that problem. Wore it in 15 degree weather with just the jacket and a merino base layer and stayed pretty warm. It was my first Sitka purchase and I must say it was the best purchase. I will definitely be running Sitka for now on. The price is up there but trust me, it’s worth it.

This is the best jacket I have ever used waterfowl hunting. After using Drake jackets for years, having to deal with being slightly chilled at all times and very strange fits throughout each generation I had enough of the BS. I decided it was time to spend the money. Hunting in Illinois brings temps in the 30's for the majority of season. So far I haven't had to wear more than a T shirt under the Duck Oven down to 29. I imagine once temps touch 10 degrees this thing will handle it no problem. Materials are top notch. Fit is great, and sleeves are long enough for my 36" arms. I am 6'2" 220lbs size XL. My only concern moving forward is that the shoulder I use to shoot (right) will become permanently stained with mud from my gun. The material is more porous than previous jackets and seems to soak in grime. Time will tell, and it is washable. Thank you Sitka.

I've worn the duck oven jacket for a couple of years and it continues to be my first choice for cool weather waterfowl.

I bought this jacket in an XL to accommodate layering and to ensure adequate sleeve length - I should've ordered the L. It certainly allows for layering but it has a bit too much material under the arm and to the side of the chest for me. This hampers gun mount on occasion.

This jacket is my go to in temps from mid 20's and below.. The 2017 upgrades are beyond awesome and make a great jacket even better. I wear a Dakota vest over it to bring it in a little but all in all very pleased. Fits perfectly.

I got this jacket at the beginning of the 2017 season and so far have hunted in it from the Texas coast up to Stuttgart, with a couple of Texas lakes in between. On the coast the weather has never been below 55-60, and I was never too hot with just a t-shirt below (except when trudging out messing with the decoys). In Arkansas the temps were around 20 at sunrise and the jacket was warm with a base layer and hoodie.

Overall, this jacket is really meant to be used with waders. I really like the way the insulation stops and goes to fleece for easy tucking into waders. I also really like the cuffs and thumb holes since I've never found a pair of gloves that I really liked in the blind. I understand the outside material was changed this year to be more abrasion resistant and it seems to be tougher than other puff-type coats I have in the closet. It's certainly not a carhartt, but I'm probably not clearing brush with it either. I think this jacket performs really well and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Why did I wait so long to get this? I can’t believe how warm this jacket is. I can get away with very little under it allowing me to swing my gun freely while in the blind. It tucks into my waders without bunching up. This is a great piece to own. Do yourself a favor and get one.

The Duck Oven is my first piece of Sitka Gear and it has me hooked! The jacket stops the wind dead in its tracks and is an oven! The thick fleeced hand pockets act as a hand muff and the hand loops add extra protection for the person who doesn’t like wearing gloves while on the hunt. The bottom half of the jacket is a thinner fleece but still warm with that GORE WINDSTOPPER. Since it is that thinner fleece the jacket tucks into waders very well. The fleece on the bottom is also very stretchy, so I learned when you’re in a layout blind instead of bunching up on you or pulling on you, the Duck Oven stretches with you as you pop out of the blind. I am a skinnier guy so I also love the adjustable waist. I’ve worn this jacket with an Under Armour base 3.0 and a hoody in 30+ mph winds on a 25 degree day and stayed warm! The only complaints/concerns I have is the jackets durability and the thumb loops stitching. When I pull my gun up my thumb does pull on the stitching quite a bit as it doesn’t appear to have a lot of support. Even though it hasn’t ripped yet I usually only have the thumb loops on when I’m resting my hands in my pockets to heat them up. I would also say that where the Primaloft is located in the coat is where I’d be careful to avoid being cut or ripped. Even though it hasn’t ripped on me yet, the material on the outside where the Primaloft is located does feel a tad bit more fragile but it can take some abuse. In all I love my Duck Oven jacket and would highly recommend! I would order a size larger if you’d want to wear any layers underneath it. I’m 5’11 and 135 Ibs and I got a large with plenty room to layer.

have the complete timber set up in Sitka. This is one of the pieces I am most unimpressed with. This piece is worthless, 100% worthless, without the Hudson jacket. I have never had a more layering reliant jacket in my life.

The insulation is good in the chest and shoulder blade area. The thumb holes allow wind to be blown straight up the sleeve. The complete lack of insulation in the stomach and lower back is stupid. Claiming it work best with Waders is a stupid excuse. The jacket is hardly filled at a decent warmth weight. Insulating the entire jacket doesn’t cause anymore bunching in the Waders with a jacket that thin. Not to mention the bottom fabric (I can’t tell wether it’s the seems or the fleece fabric in the stomach) isn’t windproof.

I spend most of my time in 10-30mph winds and 10-45F weather.

The new duck oven is definitely warmer, I like the high hand pockets that the old one does not have, however I find that it is a lot more puffy than the older one and a little harder to move in. The older duck oven works better for me under the delta.

The duck oven is one of Sitka’s best waterfowl gear inventions. I bought the Hudson and the duck oven thinking I would wear the duck oven under my Hudson a lot and that is not the case. The duck oven is just enough in sub freezing temps with the help of insulated waders and a core heavyweight zip t you are toasty warm. Even if the wind is howling you are protected. Now I would say that the sleeves are somewhat short for the thumb holes to fit. I use the Hudson because It is waterproof and on super super cold days I can fit the duck oven underneath to add an extra layer. I am 5’9” 210 pounds and I ordered a large. I also ordered a large Hudson and part of my wishes I would have ordered an XL Hudson because it’s a tad snug but still works great.

The jacket is well made and the insulation is well done great jacket for layer or on its own. Problem with it is its size. Im 6'0 180 lean. My arms are not real muscular and this jacket binds at forearms and elbow. I also own the layout jacket. Forget it if you want to layer this under the layout jacket. In the northeast late season is under freezing and somedays its hours in a blind. Layering is a necessity. Both pieces should have been made with a bit more room in the arms. Especially due to the specific use of rolling around in a layout blind and having to lean forward to shoot. These expensive pieces didnt need to be made this way. Would love some feedback from Sitka on this.

This jacket is fantastic. The windstopper is perfect. The only downfall of this jacket is the sound, it is loud as can be. I bought it based on the layout and used it under my Celsius jacket (they fit perfect separately and layered). It is very loud when moving your head or body. I guess noise won't scare away ducks, but it does deer. I am sure it is perfectly suited for it's intended purpose, but not for deer hunting.

I like all the additions you made to the New 2017 Duck Oven - but you tailored the sleeves down well over an inch. It does not leave room for layering and really binds at the elbow and forearms. I really like chest pockets, because I use this as a outer shell all the time - layering underneath it. But now with layering its very uncomfortable

Awesome piece. It has been used on 90% of my hunts this season. Comfortably sitting beneath the waders or bibs it is at the core of what keeps me warm and comfortable. Combined with the Merino base layers, Traverse zip-t, Dakota Vest, and the Delta Wading Jacket as my shell, there is almost nothing keeping me from hunting in cold temperatures all day. It simply works and every Duck Hunter should own this piece of clothing.

Of all the Sitka Piece I have this one may be my favorite. Not much to say other than its an incredibly comfortable down jacket. I did put a 2" tear in one of the arms while heading to a swamp one morning but the fabric itself kept it from tearing through out the day. Fortunately I do waterfowl taxidermy and know how to sew so that problem is gone. Just know you need to be careful going through briers in this jacket due to the nature of its materials. I would definitely say it was my fault it ripped. I layer this jacket with the Core midweight, Vest, (duck oven) and Hudson. I am 190 lbs 6'1 and a Large fits me great. If anything, a tad small but not constricting in anyway and just where it needs to be for layering purposes.

I love my duck over. Super warm even in nasty temps. Love that it doesn't have a good. Love the thumb loops. The bottom half is thinner so it's easy to tuck under waders.

Only reason why I didn't give it 4 starts. The wind stopper fabric on this one (top half) is pretty easy to tear. I hunt timber and I have a couple tears oh mine just by leaning against a tree. Wish it was more durable. Over all great piece of gear!

This jacket is does exactly what it is designed to do, be worn with waders. It is warm lightweight and wind proof. I love how it fits underneath my delta wading jacket as well. My one caveat or warning to other buyers would be this; if you wear uninsulated breathable waders as opposed to neoprene waders and still hunt in sub freezing temps I would not go with this jacket. Because it's designed to have less bulk it definety has less insulation in lower half. With neoprene waders this would be ideal as anything bulky is hard to deal with and neoprene already has some insulating value. I hike in 2 miles and so I wear uninsulated waders and my lower torso can get a bit chilled with this jacket. For uninsulated wader users I think the Fahrenheit would work better because the bulk is not as big an issue and it offers more insulation in the lower torso. Don't get me wrong I love this jacket I just wish I would have thought the purchase through for my specific situation. On days where it's above freezing it's exactly what I need it's just not quite enough on those days when it's a bit colder. Other than that I give this 4 full stars.

This jacket is outstanding. Fit is true to size. Warmth and performance are unparalleled. However, according to the product description it says optimized for use under waders. This is very true. The lack of insulation below the torso makes this jacket less appropriate for wearing in any very cold hunting or fishing situation in which you don't have the protection of waders for the low back. If you plan to wear without waders and are prone to have your low back get cold, the Fahrenheit Jacket might be a better option. Sitka has thought of everything. Simply the best products available for outdoorsmen.

The Duck Oven is by far the most used jacket during waterfowl season; especially the "second split" in Iowa. It's unbelievably warm...and I really mean that. Almost no bulk and I usually can't even get away with wearing it while setting up. It's perfect for sitting in the blind or layout. I plan to get the Delta Wading Jacket to wear over it (once Sitka has them back in stock). If you can only afford one Sitka jacket for water-fowling this is definitely it. My jacket is 3 years old and still wears like new. It's a little "crinkly" and wouldn't use it for deer but you may hold a different opinion. It stuffs well in a pack and really does fit into waders well. I could ramble on about how great it is but you just need to go try one on yourself!

The Duck Oven is my most used Sitka Gear product throughout the entire ND waterfowl season. Cold weather and high winds are no match for the Duck Oven when used as an outer layer. It is durable, lightweight, can be used under waders, and is not bulky at all. It takes up very little room in a blind bag when compared to any other jacket I have owned. When temperatures become unbearable, the Duck Oven is a perfect, non-bulky insulation to wear under any outer shell. Combined with Sitka Gear's next to skin merino/heavyweight insulation, the Duck Oven was my "go-to" outer layer well into late season. The only exception to that was a handful of extreme weather hunts when an additional outer layer was needed. If I could only own one waterfowl product from Sitka Gear, this is it. This jacket will keep your profile lower, keep you mobile, keep you warmer, and keep you in the field longer... It lives up to it's name, just zip it up, and set that Duck Oven on bake!

Great Jacket. Warm and lightweight.

Its like having a white sock in the middle of the camo pattern and can be seen by ducks and geese from the side view . My son pointed this out to me , so i keep the pockets zipped up. For the expense of these, you should always have the inside a dark color or better yet the same camo pattern. . wish i could add picture to show you

I have been waterfowl hunting for nearly 60 years now, and have witnessed the evolution of just about every different kind of outer fabric for protection from the elements--starting with uninsulated waxed cotton (called tin clothing in the Pacific Northwest), and culminating with the Duck Oven jacket. I have never worn a lighter, warmer, more comfortable jacket. It is absolutely the best for multiple weather conditions--I wore it this past year in Buffalo, NY, Portland, OR, and Quantico, VA, and it performed superbly. One caution--I don't believe it is designed to be worn as outer wear in pouring rain.

As a Gore tester, I have had the privilege of trying several pieces of Sitka's waterfowl line; the Duck Oven is my go to gear. Here in the Central Flyway, we hunt geese in a great variety of conditions. Everything from windblown, frozen ponds to snow-covered bean fields. Having a multi-functional jacket that performs extremely well on its own or as a windproof insulation layer under a Delta Wading jacket, allows me to adapt to several different hunting situations. I highly recommend the Duck Oven jacket to anyone who hunts in multiple weather conditions within the same season.

I love this jacket! The Duck Oven is my favorite waterfowl piece from Sitka. I also own the Kelvin jacket, but the Duck Oven blows away anything else. It is insulated with Primaloft and also has Windstopper, so it is warm as heck on those January days hunting ducks on the river when everything else is frozen. I love the thumb holes, the fit is perfect for layering, and is a great complimentary piece for the Delta Wading jacket. It runs a bit big, so I would suggest ordering a size down from your regular jacket size. As a Gore product tester, I get to use all sorts of Sitka stuff. But this is definitely one of my favorite freezing weather pieces. I have no problem recommending it to everyone that asks.
