Fanatic Lite Bib

Whitetail : Elevated II
(21 Reviews)

Breathable enough for the afternoon heat, with just enough warmth for the sunrise snap, the new Fanatic Lite Bib specializes in all-day, early-season sits. The ultra-quiet hexagonal grid fleece construction purges excess heat, while full 2-way side zips allow additional venting and make for easy on-and-off. The Quantum adjustable suspenders maintain the correct elevation without the buckles that cause hotspots under your harness.

Favorite Sitka piece. This was my first season to use Sitka gear. I started wearing it early December and the Fanatic Lite bib has been my favorite piece to wear. I like all of the pockets, especially the hand muff pocket. the bib is great for sitting still on the ground or in a tree stand. Depending on our mid-Georgia temperature, i combine my core mid-weight T and core pant and if it is cooler and windy i have added my Stratus jacket over it. I can tell you first hand that deer just don't see the optifade elevated II pattern. I already have a wish list for more Sitka pieces once the 2019 stock is in.

I am 5'9", 165 and the medium Fanatic Lite bibs fit perfect with room to spare, even after layering. I tried the large and they were way to baggy. Many of Sitka's items are true to fit so you don't automatically have to go up a size. For me it works out like this: Standard fit, I wear a medium. Performance fit, I wear a large.

Great product! I bought and wore these bibs this year for the first time while bow hunting here in Iowa, and they performed very well. These bibs are flexible enough to wear during cool early season hunts and cold late season hunts. I wore these every time in my stand this year in temperatures ranging from 50 degrees to 19 degrees and they kept me comfortable. Now, the one disclaimer I would have on the 19 degree day I wore them was that I wore a long underwear baselayer along with a warmer UA pant underneath and I stayed warm because there was no wind. Had there been any wind that day, I would have put my Incinerator bibs on, due to the fact that the Fanatic Lite bibs don't have any Windstopper technology. I would certainly buy these bibs again, but only if the Stratus weren't available. I think it would have been worth the extra few dollars to buy the Stratus bibs as they are essentially the same thing as the Fanatic Lites, but they have Windstopper in them.

After using these Bibs for two whitetail seasons now in Michigan, I am amazed at their versatility. I have used these in early October with the Core Lightweight base layer with temps in the 60’s...and in mid-November with adding one heavy fleece layer with temps in the high 20’s! Just swap the Fanatic Lite jacket for the Celsius jacket and you are good when the temps plummet. They are super quiet, super durable, and have features in all the right places. If you are looking for one system to get from late September through mid-November...Fanatic Lite system plus Celsius Jacket is the way to go!

After much debate, I finally pulled the trigger on the Fanatic Lite bibs. Man am I glad I did. Very comfortable, fit is great, love the side vents on the legs when walking to my stand, the pockets are well placed, and very quiet. No layers underneath, 72 at the start of the hunt, 56 with a 15mph N breeze 2 hrs later. No problem . Still comfortable. XL fit great @ 6'2" and 210lbs, with room to layer underneath when the mercury drops. Great job Sitka!

I had been hunting with what i though was "good camo." After a few hunts where i got colder than i thought i should and one where i got much too warm in my camo i decided to finally take the plunge and buy some "great" camo. I do not regret it one bit. I am a larger person and it fits perfect. Finding any camo that fits someone that isn't your "average person" body profile is hard. These bibs do it perfectly. the adjustment belt built into the back of the bibs and the hook and ladder suspenders are what set this apart.

Very comfortable and warm, but not bulky. Very well thought out pocket design and placement. The only reason I didn't give 4 stars is because I noticed a couple of places on the shoulder straps that are deteriorated. I have only worn them four or five times and the straps have always been under my jacket so I guess the straps were like that when I bought them and I didn't notice. Hopefully I can get this problem resolved.

These are the perfect bib for early season whitetail hunts in the northeastern US. The insulation is flexible enough to let you tolerate an 80 degree day, but you could easily stomach a morning / evening in the stand all the way down to the 40's with the right base layer. If I could add one thing it would be larger external cargo pockets for goodies, but most will be just fine with the zip-up thigh pockets. I'm 5'8" 170 lbs and the Large is perfect.

The perfect bibs for the central Texas hunter. I've worn these comfortably from mid 80 degree temps down into the teens with a base layer. Equipped with many accessible pockets in all the right places. The leg vents have served me well from cooling down after hiking in, scouting ground, and shed hunting too.
Huntryx | 02. 20. 17
These bibs are wonderful, as are all Sitka garments.Beautifully designed and made, well thought-out as far as the needs of the hunter. Elevated II is a particularly good pattern for treestands and the fabric is also versatile. Big comfort range especially with layering. I also have the heavier weight Fanatic bibs and they are the warmest bibs I have ever found, bar none. Worth every penny. PS buy one size up, Sitka Gear is made for 20-something lean athletic types!

I check the wind speed and weather before deciding what to wear each hunt. On the days the wind will be 10mph or less, but still cool, I wear these bibs and my Fanatic Lite jacket. Cool but faster wind, out come the Stratus pants and Jacket. The Fanatic Lites are great when it is too cool to wear the Equinox set, but not cold enough to need my Fanatics. A long day in the 30s in these is possible for me with just a merino wool base layer under the bibs and either a Fanatic vest on top of the Fanatic Lite jacket, or a Stratus vest under the Fanatic Lite jacket.
Gabe | 01. 05. 17
Great bibs. Nearly perfect. Two features that are sadly lacking on these that is present on the Fanatic bibs - 1) the bowholder pocket on the ankle and 2) Windstopper fabric. I prefer a bib over pants, so didn't opt for the Stratus pants. With the right baselayers, it works well.
Nick | 12. 15. 16
Great Bibs. These are the perfect outer layer from early season to late season.
Jack | 11. 21. 16
I've used these bibs now in everything form 75 degree days in early September to 20 degree mornings this last week. They're simply amazing. Early season I never once got too warm in them and with proper layering, I was able to stay very warm and comfortable in the frigid weather as well. I highly recommend these to anyone wanting a bib that will work for you year round. Well placed pockets make for plenty of room to keep your essentials. Very quiet fabric to keep yourself from making noise on the way in, out, or while in stand.
Mikeee | 11. 16. 16
These Bibs are the great and so is the jacket.Here in Wis. you never know what can happen with the weather.
Rick | 11. 01. 16
This is fantastic for any weather condition. Its not just clothing... Its Gear!
Addam W | 10. 20. 16
These bibs were an instant winner in my book. While sitting in stand it is really hard to beat bibs. You don't have to fidget with pulling your pants up to keep the chill off the lower back and also they help to keep your core warm. Paired with the fanatic lite jacket you stay plenty warm all the way through mid season. As a entire outfit, the fanatic lites are probably the best looking also, and lets be honest, we all care how are camo looks.
Aaron | 08. 23. 16
I just received these bibs and haven't been able to test them in the woods but so far I have been very impressed. These bibs are so well thought out and include awesome features from full side zips, hand warmer pockets, and even an internal adjustment for the waist. The materials are top notch and there is no reason that these will not perform flawlessly in the woods this fall. Great product.
Jack | 08. 04. 16
I haven't been able to put them to the test in the woods but can tell you they're very comfortable and fit true to size. I feel they will be a great early season archery bib but will also get me throughout the whole season with proper layering underneath. Will write another review after I spend some time outside with them!
James | 06. 07. 16
Fantastic piece of gear. Layered them with traverse and kelvin pants and traverse and kelvin vest under the lite bibs and lite jacket. I have no doubt that I've built a system to get me from October to January. Highly recommended these. Super quiet and super comfortable.
JD Molen | 06. 01. 16
Just recieved the fanatic lite bibs and these bad boys will be all you need to get you threw deer season paired with a good base layer for late season! would highly recomend getting these paired with the fanatic lite jacket! cant wait till november

Beyond the Layers - Athlete Jim Hole Jr.

SITKA Gear | 09.22.2019

In the deep winter freeze of the Alberta Bowzone, where late November temps can reach -40F, there are two considerations legendary whitetail outfitter and SITKA Athlete Jim Hole, Jr. prioritizes: keeping warm and completely silent to mimic the stealth and patience of an owl perched in a tree.
