    Why We Made This

    Whitetail hunters need quiet, durable and odor-resistant protection. Traditional outerwear isn’t as silent as advertised and lacks technical and intuitive hunting features. Our approach was to build a mid-layer fleece insulation piece that could be versatile enough to be worn as outerwear in the early season or layered into a system for all seasons. We used Polygiene® Odor Control Technology to minimize scent. A half-zip construction allows for quickly dumping heat and room for the built-in hand muff, and integrated flip-over hand mitts keep fingers warm and agile for the moment of truth.

    Been hunting with my fanatic hoodie for 5 seasons now and it’s held up great! Durability of the material has held up impressively. Features on this piece are amazing, hand muffs are nice but not really needed in my opinion. Over the past two seasons (this and last) I noticed the odor control has been slipping, for example on warmer days, working up a sweat getting into a tree, once I layer over my base layer (typically a synthetic lightweight) the odor doesn’t go away. Maybe I’m not doing something right but I’ve been busted twice now and I swear it was the odor. Overall I’m extremely happy with the piece, it’s my go to for every elevated whitetail hunt. Also, I do wish Sitka would offer this in solid color options as well (along with the rest of their entire lines) - I know I’d buy another one of these if it was a solid (maybe even merino mix!?)

    In my opinion, this is the most versatile piece in the whitetail line and the fit is spot on. I use it on every hunt from opening evening of bow season, through ice fishing season, and on til t-shirt weather hits. It's thinner and more form fitting than a standard hoodie, but somehow they figured out a way to make it just as warm. Use it as an outer layer when it's mild, and a base layer when temps start to drop. The hood is perfect, not baggy like most hoods but also not too tight. They nailed it. Even if it's warm outside I have it with me for when it chills off when the sun starts to go down. This hoody is also very durable. I've gotten it completely covered in the annoying tiny ball burs, picked them out, and you couldn't even tell it was riddled with burs at one point after I washed it. Amazing job Sitka!

    If you are a hunter, this is a must have. Other than my Fanatic Jacket and bibs, this hoodie is the best in my arsenal. Extremly comforatable, warm and cool and the design of the concelment with the face mask and hood is brilliant. Well concealed but full vision. I cant stress enough how happy I am with this.

    Going to be a key piece of my Sitka arsenal going forward. I used this hoody to close out the Kentucky whitetail season. In mid to high 30's I used the Fanatic hoody and a Sitka vest. Allowed me to stay warm all day. I actually wore the hood only to the stand and put the vest on once there. Fit is athletic cut and outstanding. Love the built in mesh face mask. Hood design has been improved and the flip over hand mitts work. Another exceptional piece of gear from Sitka.

    Great hoody I use mid October on. It’s my top layer till the temps peak in the forty’s and is a good layer with the Shacket down to into the 20’s especially if there is low wind. The pouch in front is nice for hunting out of a saddle when it can be hard to get to your pockets on those first few frosty mornings.

    An absolute must have. Run, don't walk to buy one of these if you don't have one already. Perfect to wear alone as an outer layer or as the mid layer as temps drop. The hood and face mask are absolutely amazing! Combine this with the fanatic gloves and the flip over mittens on the hoody and it makes for wearing heavy gloves unnecessary. When temps really drop throw on the incinerator muff and you have an amazing system.

    The fanatic hoody should be a part of every serious whitetail hunters system!

    I like everything about this hoody! whoever designed it is a genius. The face mask works great and moves with your head when you turn it unlike a balaclava where after a few head turns it's blocking your vision and you have to move it back in position. The hand mitts are spectacular! I'm a bowhunter so I don't often wear gloves for fear of interfering with my release. With the mitts I can put my release under it, keep my hands warm and not interfere with the release. When walking to and from the stand I pull the flaps over my fingers to keep them warm. So from my point of view this hoody does away with needing a balaclava and gloves. I will be buying another one in case the other one needs washed as it will forever be in my layering system. Sitka please make a light weight core hoody with a kangaroo pocket in the front. No one in the world makes one and it would be so useful for storing things and keeping bugs from eating my hands in the warm early season.

    This is an awesome piece. I recently wore this with a Tshirt underneath in 44 degree weather with a slight breeze. Was not hunting was actually at Six Flags and never once did I get cold riding the coasters, waiting in line etc..... The fit is right one, the hooding with face mask is exceptional. Will definitely wear this under my Fanatic Jacket...Just waiting to go whitetail hunting in Missouri in January.....I doubt that I will freeze like I did 3 weeks ago now that I have Sitka gear.....Awesome quality and awesome gear

    Other than the price I love this shirt. As it gets colder in NE Ohio, I start off with my long sleeve t, the the heavy weight half zip t, then the hoodie. The face mask I thought was a novelty idea, but turns out I love it. I've always had the big wooly neck gaiters in the past, I've used this 18 degree Temps and it keeps your face warm, and I'm a freeze baby. If there were something I didn't like I would tell you, but the hood, doesn't block your vision, the face mask doesn't sag, the mitten things Idk about never used them. But definitely 2 enthusiastic thumbs up.
