This pullover is the most functional and important piece of wearable gear that I own. The face guard allows me to conceal my face quickly and the size and weight are percent for layering. I will not go in the woods without this pullover regardless of the temperature. It just makes my day easier without having to keep up with a face mask and skull cap. I would like the face guard to be vented to minimize the haze on my binoculars.
Great job guys. Function matters, that’s why I love your gear.

Pricey but pretty sure this is going to get as much use as my Stratus pants (possibly more even). I've warn this a ton this season already and foresee it staying on my body the remainder of it. This gets an A+ from me because it is exactly what I needed. The outer layer of fabric is super quiet. This pairs nicely with the the Stratus and Fanatic system's. It has done a great job thus far repelling light on and off rainstorms. I've worn this comfortably as an outer-layer down to ~45*F on a calm day. An overlooked part of this item is the how good of a job this garment does at trapping your body heat when zipped completely up with the lightweight hood on. The hood is light enough to hear through but is somehow just heavy enough to keep my ears comfortable. One evening when the temps dropped to 38*F with a 12 mph wind I got a little chilly just wearing the hoodie. I slid the Stratus jacket on over top of the hoodie and it instantly fixed the issue.

I love this hoody. So far I wore this piece early season but I am going to wear this all year. Right now it's outerlayer, but as temps drop I am going to use this as a mid layer.

This is one piece of equipment that will now forever be placed in my “Essentials” bin.
Fit: Alike with Sitka’s innovative designs, the ability to move silently and smoothly in all directions fits perfectly with any layering system. Sitka placed the perfect amount of material to allow for full coverage even at full draw or climbing to the stand.
Weather: this was the big one for me. When I first received the hoody I thought that I would only be able to wear it in temps between 35-50 degrees. The first time I tested the hoody was September 22 during a Southern Maine hunt where the early morning (gray light) temps were in the low 50’s. By 7 am the temperature had increased to 74 degrees Fahrenheit! And I had forgotten that I was wearing the same layering system. I was amazed to say the least. The breathability yet warm when needed was amazing.
Versatility: The hood fits perfectly along with the built in face mask. With the built in harness port, I can wear this with a 1/4 zip base layer long sleeve with my Treestand harness layer on top of that and then the hoody layered on top of the harness. This allows me to get my “first 2-hour layer” completely set up at the truck prior to getting to the stand. Lastly, since my first hunt I have been able to layer this beneath the fanatic lite jacket and it fits perfectly, while remaining silent. I have already told two of my friends that this is a must have for the first half of the season.

Awesome hoody! Just got it today. I am 6' 2" 210lbs. I bought the XL. Sleeves are great, but the body fits much to snug with just a t-shirt on. I will swap out for the 2XL. Thanks for making a great product Sitka!

Layering 101 with SITKA Gear Founder, Jonathan Hart

As humans, we are at a genetic and physiological disadvantage to survive in wild places. Yet we’re instinctively drawn to test our mettle against species who have adapted for millennia to thrive in these challenging environments. At SITKA, we build systems to level the playing field with wild animals in their domain; giving hunters the ability to adapt to the rapidly-changing conditions encountered in the wild.
