The Grinder Hoody was born to pull double-duty for waterfowl season. Worn between a next-to-skin layer and a shell for core insulation or as a breathable, water and abrasion-resistant outer layer. The Grinder has become the go-to high-performance intermediate layer for duck guides and is an integral piece in a waterfowlers system.

Why We Made This

Waterfowl season is a grind and hunters have been looking for a durable lighter-weight insulation piece to get them through the season. They needed a jacket that could pull double duty: from dynamic workloads of getting to the field and setting up decoys to transitioning to insulation for periods of static activity in the blind. Our approach was to use the combination of lofted fleece for the interior to deliver core-warmth and superior abrasion-resistance technology on the exterior for ultimate durability. A DWR finish provides water-resistance from light precipitation that won’t wet-out the face fabric and the hood form-fits to your head for added warmth, concealment and protection from the elements without hampering your field of vision.

WORTH IT! I wore this hoody in Northwest Nebraska for a January duck/goose hunt. when putting out decoys in 20 to 30 mph winds while it was 20degrees out was no problem having a merino wool shirt under and Dakota vest over this. i only put my jacket (dakota hoody) on when i was sitting still during the hunt. the outer material did great in wind and snow keeping me warm and dry. every duck hunter should have this. only reason for not giving a 5 start is no kangaroo pocket.

Fit, fabric, and finish are all great, plus it's the perfect weight for layering late season or solo early and mid season. However, IT ONLY HAS ONE CHEST POCKET, no side pockets or kangaroo pocket on the front, unlike every other hoody I've ever owned. C'mon Sitka, that's an obvious inclusion on a $170 garment that pulls double duty.

This might be my favorite piece of clothing. I wear way too often because its about the perfect heavy sweatshirt type of garment. Super comfortable. The DWR is awesome when using it as out lighter outer layer and the dog splashes water on me setting up decoys.
