Moisture Wicking
Product is Performance Fit, designed for minimal layering.



Why We Made This

Fleece mid-layers often come with a lack of efficient moisture transfer limiting the performance of subsequent layers. We solved this problem with a unique waffled construction that accelerates the movement of sweat through the system, preventing it from building up on the inside. The channeled insulation provides some additional warmth, and Polygiene technology controls odor building making this an incredibly versatile mid-layer, that can also function as an outer layer.

I would give this product eleventeen hunnerd and fiddy stars if it just had either a pouch pocket or two individual pockets. Seriously, what is the first thing you do when you step outside in a hoodie? You put your hands in the pockets. I was blown away over how warm this hoodie is for how thin and light it is. You must have come across some space age material or something. I can't state enough how perfect this would be if it had pockets. I don't suppose there is any way I can get a swatch of the material and have a seamstress make me a pouch pocket?

I've been wearing this jacket as a second layer over a T-shirt or base layer during duck season beneath my Delta Wading Jacket. With the temps ranging from single digits to the 30's this has been the perfect combo. The material is super soft and and the hood fit's perfectly. I liked it so much, I bought two additional in different colors. This hoodie quickly went from the duck blind to the everyday wear during the cooler months.

Probably my favorite base layer piece when it gets to late October through the end of January and a great layering piece in warmer weather. Super comfortable and pretty warm. It would be nice if it had a kangaroo pocket but since I normally throw a jacket over the top of it I don’t notice not having a pocket too much. All around great piece was always!

The product is very warm and very comfortable. The extra length in the back is super helpful for layering. however, if you use this piece as an outer layer for very much time at all it starts to ball up pretty bad. I’ve been fairly easy on it and it’s not in great shape. Only had it for 6 months.

I own several heavy weight hoodies and wear them often during the CO winters and cooler months. Very comfortable, relatively warm, great layering piece, and love the half length zipper for dumping heat. Reason for 3 stars is that the material has started to pile after about one year's worth of use.. and price. If you can find one on sale it becomes 4 stars!

Not that this staple of the Sitka line needs another review but here goes. I wear one of these every day at work, obviously we can’t hunt 365 days per year. But I did just wear one over a core lightweight hoody and under my traverse cold weather hoody in Montana. A couple mornings it hit -17 and I have to say this system kept me warm and even sweating while moving and plenty warm when stopped to glass once temps rose into the teens and 20s. I wear a large on a 5’11” 200 pound frame. Fits me well. Great product as always.

Reviewed On 11/23/2022

I really like this piece it’s fits a little loose compared to other pieces. I find myself always grabbing my fanatic hood instead because of the face mask and kangaroo pocket but that’s no fault of this piece. If Sitka added a face mask to this, game over. I think the fanatic is slightly warmer but the long wonky sleeves and finger mitten things really detract from the fanatic.

Hands down the best all around hoodie I own. I rated 3 stars because the chest pocket does not fit the new iPhones. The pocket it literally an iron on patch pocket. So there is no reason Sitka can not make a large enough pocket to fit new model cell phones. This is not 2009 anymore. So please make a bigger pocket. I will change my review to 10 out of 5 stars when this change is made.

I just bought this for a spring black bear hunt and wore it every day for 5 days strait, it fits the bill here in north Idaho on the 4am 23°F morning with a puffy jacket and mountain vest over it. Then as the tempa warmed up to 65°F by noon I only needed this shirt. The hood is perfect to keep sun off your neck or zip the shirt all the way up for extra warmth while glassing. My only complaint is it's too baggy around the waist. I'm 5'9" 190 crossfit build and I felt like there's too much extra material around the belly area.

Reviewed On 03/13/2022

First, what I like. This piece is quite warm and wind resistant, and very well designed functionally from the form fitting hood to the nice, longer sleeves that allow one to raise hands above head without them riding way up, similarly with the long tail to cover the back. What I don't like is that the belly and waist are huge, which makes this warm piece compromised when worn untucked because it lets in a huge draft from below. I'm 5'11 with a 44" chest and 33" waist, weighing 175 lbs, which is generally a solid Large size. This thing is huge in the waist--I measure it at 43". It's made with tons of stretchy Lycra, too, so who are they expecting to have to fit with this cut? Also, the chest pocket could be a little bigger to accommodate average smart phones without having to stretch the pocket, which makes it hard to extricate.

I own three of these and primarily use them as base layer for cold weather (under 10 deg F) pheasant hunting. Hood is great in windy cold conditions and pull down as conditions improve. Also use as a base layer fishing on cold days. Hood is perfect when running between fishing locations.

Got this, because I love my core lightweight goody so much, but needed a bit more warmth and this delivered. It is everything I was hoping for when the weather started getting colder. I can hike just in this and stay plenty warm and just have to throw a puffy over it when glassing and I stay so warm. This is a absolute must for cold weather hunting.

I was very impressed at the warmth to weight ratio of this piece. It is very lightweight, but the channeling in the insulation works well to trap body heat and the outer material blocks the wind quite well. The fit is a bit on the larger side, especially in the trunk and waist which is a bit baggy compared to other Sitka pieces.

Like I said in my review of the Kelvin WS hoody, I can't decide which of these is my very favorite piece from Sitka. It could very well be this one. The warmth to wight ratio boggles my mind. It is very soft and very warm for what it is. With a Merino wool base layer under the heavyweight hoody, it can probably get you through 90% of your hunting season. It wicks moisture very well and does not hold onto scent at all. I can't say enough about it, I like it so much that I plan on getting another one just to have. Very pleased.

I have last years model, not sure what is different for this year. Wore it in Michigan's white tail opener 2 days ago when it was 60 going to the stand and 80 coming out. Got a little sweaty on the way in, but the wicking dried me out quick once in the stand. Even in 70's and low 80's I wasn't hot as the channeled fleece kept air moving (BTW, this was with using the hood). Only got uncomfortable when the sun started hitting my directly. I was really surprised, I thought I would have to shed it once the temps started rising.

The Necessities of Comfort: Gear Tips To Improve Your Next Hunt

Comfort can play a vital role in the hunt. Not in the sense that being comfortable makes the hunt easy, more that it allows us to shift focus from the challenges of the hunt to the task at hand. When we bring our bodies and minds to a state of comfort, we become more effective, more efficient, and more durable to the conditions. Comfort becomes a tool.
