    Why We Made This

    We found hunters were needing a fully-featured late-season jacket that could withstand cold winds while remaining ultra-silent. We set out to tackle this need and more with the Fanatic. We sound tested fabric compared to whitetail hearing engagement and netted out with a GORE-TEX INFINIUM with WINDSTOPPER® barrier sandwiched between Berber fleece face fabric and Primaloft® SIlver insulation. Because of our innovative diagonal-zip design, we were able to include a pass-through hand muff lined in Berber fleece for exceptional warmth. To round out the design, we added functional pockets for a rangefinder and grunt tube that flank the diagonal zipper for quick at-hand needs.

    The jacket is freakin amazing but you can read the other reviews to find that out. I’m here to talk about the warranty, my dog chewed up my jacket and I almost cried because it is an essential tool for the rut hunts! I called them and told them my dog crewed up the zipper and I sent it back to them. Not only did they fix the jacket free of charge, they also sent me a Sitka camo ball cap. What an awesome company!! Yes the jacket is pricey but when you are setting in the tree on a 15° November morning your going to be mad you didn’t have it the year before..

    If you hunt in a cold climate, this jacket is worth it's weight in gold. The kangaroo pocket is something special. No need for hand muff or thick gloves, which is a huge advantage when bow hunting. People might say it attracts burs, but you should honestly just pack it in anyways because it is so warm. For it's warmth, it isn't bulky at all. No problems with string slap on the sleeves whatsoever. Far superior to any body suit kind of system out there. Pairing it with the neck gaiter, and either the fanatic beanie or stratus beanie is far superior to any hood they could possibly design for this jacket. The price may hurt a bit, but I PROMISE you, you will be so glad you purchased this magical piece of gear.

    I like this jacket for the most part, but there are some things I would change. The pouch pocket needs some work. I don't see the need for the mesh and the magnet is not near strong enough. If you bend over, good chance you are going to lose some things. Also, I'd like if they added a zippered pocket on the left chest (for the right handed version.) I also wish id had velcro wrists. Over time the wrist openings will get stretched out. Still wish it came with a removable hood too. I don't understand why they took that away.

    So I bought this thinking good thoughts with very little money. (Past) I have been using homemade gillie suit but this last year wearing this gear I walked up to two diffrent deer, I mean 10 ft. Unlike my gillie suit, when I stopped moving the deer would go back to doing what ever. With gillie suit the deer would always keep their eyes on me but with this, they turned their backs and walked around, even when shooting at both they only moved 10-20ft away from me great camo!!!!! (I now have a loan at bank for this camo)

    Perfection, these guys at Sitka really make awesome products. I hunt here in the northeast and it gets really cold and windy., this is where the Fanatic jacket really shines. In combination with the Fanatic bibs and hat I can bow-hunt in the worst conditions and be comfy all day. I love the fact that it is light and packable so I can hike in then put it on once I get to my tree stand. Sitka under layers and mid layers bring it all together for the perfect system for me. Love this stuff, worth every penny to be warm and comfortable while on stand.

    Hands down the best jacket I have ever worn and easily my favorite piece of Sitka gear that I own. The jacket is so well thought out and is a bowhunters dream. The arms are smoothed out in areas to allow for a smooth draw cycle, which is really nice, it also has a range finder/ grunt tube pocket, another pocket you can store your phone in, etc., and a kangaroo style hand muff pocket that is so warm I don't even wear gloves when hunting in it. The collar on this jacket is really nice because it eliminates the need for a neck gaiter and has a magnet to help fold the neck collar down if that's how you prefer to wear it.

    I'm 6 foot and a bigger guy and normally wear an XL in clothes but I ordered this in an XXL. It fits a little big but is exactly what I wanted so that I could layer under it. If you're not a "bigger" guy, I'd order the size you normally wear because it is meant for layering.

    I wear this jacket when it gets down to 35 degrees and below. I've worn it around 30 degrees with strong winds and with nothing other than a long sleeve shirt under it. I have also worn it down to 18 with a long sleeve compression base layer and a vest and stayed plenty warm. I'm positive with a a good mid layer that this jacket can be worn down to the single digits if not down to 0. The jacket is very warm and I cannot begin to explain how good the WindStopper works in this jacket. When I walk to the stand I keep the jacket unzipped and if I'm carrying a lot then I will wait til I get to the stand to put it on. If you don't you'll probably be extra toasty and extra sweaty walking in.

    The jacket is pricey but if you're a serious whitetail hunter, especially in the late-season, this jacket is a must and well worth the investment into your gear. Thank you Sitka!

    I recently got this jacket for Christmas and I am completely blown away. I hunt in Northeast Iowa so it can get extremely cold and have brutal winters. After sitting in the 20° degree weather with 35 MPH wind gusts blowing all night, I can confidently say that I didn’t even get a little chilly. To layer, I had a merino wool shirt, and just base-layer/long underwear. It withstands the conditions and is essential for any cold weather whitetail hunter to ensure you stay comfortable in the stand. 10/10 would recommend.

    I have been buying, trying so many cold weather gear. For my wife, to keep her out for our 4 month bow season. Usually she would be done when the temperature dropped below 45 degrees. Yesterday it was a chilly 25 degrees with a 5 to 15 mph NE wind. She sat for 5 hours! Getting to see her first ever buck fight. As well as enjoying the time out. Today we will hunt the afternoon in dropping temperatures to 20 degree . Shes actually looking forward to the sit! I bought myself the same outfit. Seeing how much warmer she was. Truly a game changer! The suit (Bibs and jacket) allows the user to use less clothing. Pockets allow the user to hold essential gear. Zippers are quiet, while the suit itself is almost dead silent

    I've been Deering hunting on the ground since I was a kid here in Montana. Last year I got into treestand hunting. Treestands complicate things and require some specialized clothing. I've been using my big game stuff and it worked OK. Yesterday was my first sit with this jacket. It's fantastic! The only kicker is it's not waterproof. It did however handle a light mist. But I pulled my Dewpoint jacket it over it when the wet snow came. Sitka really thought this jacket out. The muff pocket is incredible. The zipper pocket is perfect for a phone or holding hour binos. It is a tad bulky but it's super warm! The grunt call pocket is a great touch! Yet another great Sitka product!

    As you would expect from Sitka, this garment is awesome. I do think the grunt tube and range finder pocket needs a little more work. Maybe the grunt tube side needs to be a little more sectioned off so the tube won’t want to fall into the pocket. Maybe it’s just an issue I’m having. The magnet definitely needs to be stronger.
    I can definitely live with it though. And would definitely recommend.

    Is this expensive? Yes.. Is it worth it? Yes. I recently had a half day sit Temps in mid 20s and 3 inches of snow, I was wearing the long sleeve t shirt, heavy duty half zip t, and the fanatic hoodie with the fanatic coat on overtop. Never did I even get a chill. The only problem I had was not flipping up the collar when it started to snow. Once the snow started falling around my neck it melted and was wet, but not wet close to skin. (but that was my fault) other thing, don't think you can just buy the bibs and coat and expect to be warm, it's the system that works together that keeps the warmth in. This system isn't for everyone, but if you like to be out in the late season, and want to sit longer then think of this as investing in your future hunting experiences. I've never hunted must past Dec 15 because I can't stay warm much more than 3 hours, I know that will change this year.

    To start I'm 5'10" 165lbs from NE Ohio. I ordered the large. It fits good, the length is perfect however it is a little loose in stomach. I just wore it today over thermals and the fanatic hoodie. The temp was 21° feels like 14° I was only out for 2 hrs. I am a freeze baby and a tight wod with money so buying this was hard. But after sitting out in the bitter cold today and being toasty and silent I'm more than happy! The hand warmer pocket and grunt tube pocket on the front is money. I had 2 doe and a spike about 15yrds from me. I drew on the doe to make sure it was silent as it seems. It passed the test and didn't ruin my night. This paired with the fanatic hoodie is awesome. I was wearing thermals and fleece lined pants and my legs were freezing but upper body was more than warm. Getting bibs soon as they are in stock. So if you're on the fence about these I'd pull the trigger on them. I wish I did years ago.

    This is obviously a good piece of gear, that I highly recommend for bowhunting, but there are a few things that are left to be desired in my opinion.

    1. The rangefinder pocket should be a little lower; when wearing a bino harness, the mouth of the pocket is affected by the strap of the harness making retrieving your rangefinder less smooth than it could be.

    2. Jacket should be longer. I don't have a long torso, and my lower back kept feeling the breezes in this jacket. It is cut oddly short, and the drawstring doesn't seem to cinch it down much. This isn't a problem with bibs, but certainly noticeable without.

    3. The sleeves need to be lined with a satin like material as opposed to whatever is used. My merino base layers would stick,cling, and bunch putting it on--not all my layers have thumb holes which might reduce this issue, however, I do think they would "ride up" around your elbows over time. I don't usually wear synthetic base layers, this might not be a problem if you do.

    The fanatic jacket is the best jacket I have ever owned. I hunt in Illinois where we go from 60 degrees one day down to 15 degrees the next. I have worn the fanatic jacket this year on hunts below 20 degrees with only the fanatic hoodie and heavy merino core shirt under it. I never got the slightest bit cold. One of my favorite parts about the jacket is the hand warmer built into the front of the jacket. Your hands will stay warm even without gloves. My main objective when I purchased the Sitka gear was to reduce the amount of layers I have to wear when I hunt. The fanatic series has helped me do just that. In addition to the jacket, I also own the fanatic bibs, fanatic vest, fanatic gloves, esw pant, and merino heavyweight core pant. I would give a 5/5 star rating to everyone of these items except the fanatic gloves. The fanatic gloves have a great concept however they do not keep your hands warm. My next purchase will be the Stratus or Celsius pants to have something to wear between early season and the heart of the winter. The Fanatic vest is amazing for afternoon hunts when the full jacket might be to much. Hope this long review helps all of you when ordering your Sitka Gear. It is expensive but you get what you pay for.

    I just returned from a stationary whitetail hunt in MT in unseasonably cold weather. I am 6'2' and 260 lbs and the XXL fit nicely over 2 layers of insulation. This is a very effective jacket, as it is very warm and amazingly quiet. My suggestions for improvement are: more room in the throat (or use a stretchy collar) to allow for high neck layering and the Sitka Gear gaiter, and continue working on reducing burr accumulation (this dissuaded me from buying the Fanatic backpack after finishing my hunt). I upgraded from a used model purchased in 2014 and this new jacket is light years better in warmth, roominess and stealth. I hunted in 10-15 F (before wind chill) and didn't need to put my bibs on (traverse insulation and Mountain pants) as this jacket kept me warm in cold winds. Thank you SG for another thoughtful and effective solution to cold weather hunting.
