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.

This hoody rocks. Love the different material on the face mask comparative to the core lightweight hoody. Find myself rolling the sleeves back at the cuffs almost every time though. Prefer this over the first lite origin. Starting to get some piling on this more so than my other Sitka gear. The length is a touch annoying when I want to reach for it when not hunting, but, that aint what it was built for :)

Fantastic piece of equipment. Very well engineered. They run a bit on the smaller side which is ok for a base layer. They do have a ton of stretch. I am 5 11 and 175 lbs the large was perfect. The sleeves are long which I like, most base layers will shrink after washing and your sleeves are short not this hoodie. The back is extra long to keep drafts out. The hood is great it moves with your head and does not obscure your view like most hoodies. The mouth and nose cover is great for really cold days. I hunt in both Wyoming and Michigan and I have to say this is my favorite piece of gear. I bought one for my wife for a four day hike and camping
expedition in the Grand Canyon in late November she absolutely loved it. We she got back she bought another one!
Not cheap but worth the money.

I was somewhat skeptical reading the reviews but pulled the trigger and tried it out, and am very glad I did. Not a fan of the extra long sleeves with the mitten thing. I quickly learned to roll them back as I have no need for them. Looking at taking it to my local seamstress and having them cut off. Other than the long sleeves I absolutely love this hoodie! With a base layer under the hoodie and a warming layer, Patagonia puffer, and I'm good to around 30 degrees. Below 30 and I still have some gear weaknesses but plan to upgrade in the next year, stratus or fanatic not sure yet. Wish Sitka offered this hoodie without the long sleeves as an option. 9 out of 10 only because of the sleeves.

I bought this this year after staring at the whitetail lineup for over a year. If you are on the fence, get off of it. It's probably by far my favorite new piece of gear. The built in gloves make it so I don't have to bring a set with me in light weather and same with the built in facemask, which unlike some other masks I find to be not as annoying and will easily ride under my chin until I need it. The inside of this is nice and comfortable but it's not a thick sweatshirt. With a merino layering you can get this down into the 40s with no wind. It has one downfall which is the lack of WINDSTOPPER (my only reason for 4 stars). This is a piece which could absolutely benefit from it for the guys who hunt those warmer fall days with a little wind and don't really need a jacket. I watched many reviews on this and I would echo the thoughts that if you're thinking about getting into the whitetail lineup, this should be one of your first pieces. I am 5-10 260 and bought a 2XL and it fits perfectly. And the back panel extends down a bit to either stay tucked into your pants or provide coverage while in the tree stand.

Excellent first layer. I’m an Alabama hunter and we don’t need as many layers as most. This is perfect. Smooth outer layer with an extra soft, warm interior.

I know people are leaving reviews about wearing this hoodie for sitting around the house and doing chores. This is a piece of invaluable hunting gear. It has been part of my layering system for a month of PA archery season. Lots of cooler days this year and this hoodie mostly as a mid layer has impressed me. The mitts on the end of the sleeves are awesome. The hood and face mask are genius. And the EVII camo has made me invisible to deer. Don’t know the science behind the camo but I have had deer catch my movement and if I stay still, within a minute they are relaxed again, even staring straight at me.

I’m using this as a 1st layer over my base layer to hike into my tree stand and I then layer up. First time out it was right at 40F and I waited about two hours before I felt like I needed to add a layer. One thing I noticed right away is that having the thumb holes helps in adding a layer and the slickness of the material makes it slide right into the next layer without much effort. Also found the mittens to be a nice addition good to just get the cool air off the fingers but you can quickly have them exposed if needed. The length of the sleeves is what really makes me love this product. I’m 6’5” with extra long arms and the long version fits perfectly!

This piece is used during bow season in Missouri (Oct.). I really enjoy the built in facemask and it is very breathable even in warmer temps. I've scouted in July with this hoody on, shot with it, and even worn it when it chills off hanging out on the back porch. Yes I'll sweat in it but it is never so much that I would rather take it off thanks to the zipper that runs down to my sternum. I'm 6'2 185 and the LT fits me well. My only gripe is the hand muffs that are built in. I don't use them at all and I'll instead wear the fanatic glove.

Great piece. I wear it all season in Tennessee. It works well as an outer layer under a harness early in the season then transitions to a mid or additional layer as the season progresses. The built-in face mask is a great feature and eliminates the need to bring one separately.

I absolutely love everything about this but I returned it immediately. The gloves/mittens…why?? They’re just awkward and I’d much prefer to just use gloves with it if I need them. I’d love to use this as a layering piece in cold weather but then I’m wearing normal gloves and now I’ve just got a bunch of extra material bunched at the sleeves. Awful for bow hunters with releases or string clearance. Would love to see this redesigned without the gloves…I’d buy in a heartbeat.

This piece is warm and the facemask feature is really nice. However, the flip mits are more of a bulky pain than they are a helpful feature, and most importantly, it is NOT a durable piece. I’m on my second one, and both have pulled up so bad that I need to get it repaired. My first one had a hand mitt rip off when putting on a jacket, and my current one lost its zipper in the wash, even after I followed all directions. I do not put this piece through much at all and it continues to be the least durable I own, which is disappointing because I want to like it!

Only used this hoodie a few times but impressed so far. It's not super warm, but it gives great warmth for how lightweight it is. You could use it as an outer during early season, outer during mid season with a base layer, and as an underneath layer during late season. The best part about it is the fit. Not too tight, but very streamlined and doesn't get in your way. Its snug enough to easily be an underneath layer but not too tight that you can still get a base layer underneath. Very versatile hoodie.

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!

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.

My family has raved about Sitka Gear for the past few years, all based around moose hunts. This is my first Sitka product, DAMN, I am a believer!! I love this hoody, and show it off whenever I have a chance. Not to boast about what I have, but because everyone should have one.

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.

This hoodie is amazing. I wore it with a Core L/S, medium weight merino top and my Stratus pants and at 29 degrees, I was toasty warm. My first weekend with Sitka has made me a believer!

That one item that you will use anywhere for everything. This is it. Super strong. Snug and comfy. Always warm. I take it everywhere for every hunt. Waiting for the subalpine color to come out. You can’t go wrong with this piece.

Love this hoody. Perfect layering piece of eart season pack along for when the sun starts to go down. Every time I go hunting, I either have it on or with me. The extended length in the back is an awesome feature. Would recommend.
