Great jacket very warm however mine is the original design and I was happy with until this year I have ripped it on 3 separate occasions. Really sucks i saved my money up to buy what I thought was the best gear ( I absolutely love all my other Sitka Gear) and then the very next year they update it with tougher material hand warmer chest pockets and a thicker fleece on the bottom just my luck!

Bought my duck oven from Mack’s Praire Wings and I absolutely love it. Warm, wind stopping, and water stopping. Truly innovative for hunting jackets. Fits perfectly under waders and doesn’t bunch up at all. I was weary about getting it but it was the best decision I’ve ever made. The upper chest pockets are perfect with a few hand warmers in them. Will never wear anything else!

This jacket is my go to in temps from mid 20's and below.. The 2017 upgrades are beyond awesome and make a great jacket even better. I wear a Dakota vest over it to bring it in a little but all in all very pleased. Fits perfectly.

I got this jacket at the beginning of the 2017 season and so far have hunted in it from the Texas coast up to Stuttgart, with a couple of Texas lakes in between. On the coast the weather has never been below 55-60, and I was never too hot with just a t-shirt below (except when trudging out messing with the decoys). In Arkansas the temps were around 20 at sunrise and the jacket was warm with a base layer and hoodie. Overall, this jacket is really meant to be used with waders. I really like the way the insulation stops and goes to fleece for easy tucking into waders. I also really like the cuffs and thumb holes since I've never found a pair of gloves that I really liked in the blind. I understand the outside material was changed this year to be more abrasion resistant and it seems to be tougher than other puff-type coats I have in the closet. It's certainly not a carhartt, but I'm probably not clearing brush with it either. I think this jacket performs really well and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Why did I wait so long to get this? I can’t believe how warm this jacket is. I can get away with very little under it allowing me to swing my gun freely while in the blind. It tucks into my waders without bunching up. This is a great piece to own. Do yourself a favor and get one.

The Duck Oven is my first piece of Sitka Gear and it has me hooked! The jacket stops the wind dead in its tracks and is an oven! The thick fleeced hand pockets act as a hand muff and the hand loops add extra protection for the person who doesn’t like wearing gloves while on the hunt. The bottom half of the jacket is a thinner fleece but still warm with that GORE WINDSTOPPER. Since it is that thinner fleece the jacket tucks into waders very well. The fleece on the bottom is also very stretchy, so I learned when you’re in a layout blind instead of bunching up on you or pulling on you, the Duck Oven stretches with you as you pop out of the blind. I am a skinnier guy so I also love the adjustable waist. I’ve worn this jacket with an Under Armour base 3.0 and a hoody in 30+ mph winds on a 25 degree day and stayed warm! The only complaints/concerns I have is the jackets durability and the thumb loops stitching. When I pull my gun up my thumb does pull on the stitching quite a bit as it doesn’t appear to have a lot of support. Even though it hasn’t ripped yet I usually only have the thumb loops on when I’m resting my hands in my pockets to heat them up. I would also say that where the Primaloft is located in the coat is where I’d be careful to avoid being cut or ripped. Even though it hasn’t ripped on me yet, the material on the outside where the Primaloft is located does feel a tad bit more fragile but it can take some abuse. In all I love my Duck Oven jacket and would highly recommend! I would order a size larger if you’d want to wear any layers underneath it. I’m 5’11 and 135 Ibs and I got a large with plenty room to layer.

have the complete timber set up in Sitka. This is one of the pieces I am most unimpressed with. This piece is worthless, 100% worthless, without the Hudson jacket. I have never had a more layering reliant jacket in my life. The insulation is good in the chest and shoulder blade area. The thumb holes allow wind to be blown straight up the sleeve. The complete lack of insulation in the stomach and lower back is stupid. Claiming it work best with Waders is a stupid excuse. The jacket is hardly filled at a decent warmth weight. Insulating the entire jacket doesn’t cause anymore bunching in the Waders with a jacket that thin. Not to mention the bottom fabric (I can’t tell wether it’s the seems or the fleece fabric in the stomach) isn’t windproof. I spend most of my time in 10-30mph winds and 10-45F weather.

The new duck oven is definitely warmer, I like the high hand pockets that the old one does not have, however I find that it is a lot more puffy than the older one and a little harder to move in. The older duck oven works better for me under the delta.

The duck oven is one of Sitka’s best waterfowl gear inventions. I bought the Hudson and the duck oven thinking I would wear the duck oven under my Hudson a lot and that is not the case. The duck oven is just enough in sub freezing temps with the help of insulated waders and a core heavyweight zip t you are toasty warm. Even if the wind is howling you are protected. Now I would say that the sleeves are somewhat short for the thumb holes to fit. I use the Hudson because It is waterproof and on super super cold days I can fit the duck oven underneath to add an extra layer. I am 5’9” 210 pounds and I ordered a large. I also ordered a large Hudson and part of my wishes I would have ordered an XL Hudson because it’s a tad snug but still works great.

The jacket is well made and the insulation is well done great jacket for layer or on its own. Problem with it is its size. Im 6'0 180 lean. My arms are not real muscular and this jacket binds at forearms and elbow. I also own the layout jacket. Forget it if you want to layer this under the layout jacket. In the northeast late season is under freezing and somedays its hours in a blind. Layering is a necessity. Both pieces should have been made with a bit more room in the arms. Especially due to the specific use of rolling around in a layout blind and having to lean forward to shoot. These expensive pieces didnt need to be made this way. Would love some feedback from Sitka on this.

Just got my duck oven jacket and it is WARM. Was a bit scared when I first got it it seemed thin, but it is perfect to layer or even use as an outer shell when its a bit warmer. It is truly wind proof and I am definitely going to be purchasing more Sitka gear later this year, worth the money.

The jacket is crazy warm, hand pockets feel like fur on the inside and the chest pockets are in the perfect position, jacket is a little noisy but considering it's for duck hunting that is just fine! I'm 5'7 and about 155 pounds I ordered this jacket in a size up, a large and it fits great.

This jacket is fantastic. The windstopper is perfect. The only downfall of this jacket is the sound, it is loud as can be. I bought it based on the layout and used it under my Celsius jacket (they fit perfect separately and layered). It is very loud when moving your head or body. I guess noise won't scare away ducks, but it does deer. I am sure it is perfectly suited for it's intended purpose, but not for deer hunting.

I like all the additions you made to the New 2017 Duck Oven - but you tailored the sleeves down well over an inch. It does not leave room for layering and really binds at the elbow and forearms. I really like chest pockets, because I use this as a outer shell all the time - layering underneath it. But now with layering its very uncomfortable

Awesome piece. It has been used on 90% of my hunts this season. Comfortably sitting beneath the waders or bibs it is at the core of what keeps me warm and comfortable. Combined with the Merino base layers, Traverse zip-t, Dakota Vest, and the Delta Wading Jacket as my shell, there is almost nothing keeping me from hunting in cold temperatures all day. It simply works and every Duck Hunter should own this piece of clothing.

Of all the Sitka Piece I have this one may be my favorite. Not much to say other than its an incredibly comfortable down jacket. I did put a 2" tear in one of the arms while heading to a swamp one morning but the fabric itself kept it from tearing through out the day. Fortunately I do waterfowl taxidermy and know how to sew so that problem is gone. Just know you need to be careful going through briers in this jacket due to the nature of its materials. I would definitely say it was my fault it ripped. I layer this jacket with the Core midweight, Vest, (duck oven) and Hudson. I am 190 lbs 6'1 and a Large fits me great. If anything, a tad small but not constricting in anyway and just where it needs to be for layering purposes.

I love my duck over. Super warm even in nasty temps. Love that it doesn't have a good. Love the thumb loops. The bottom half is thinner so it's easy to tuck under waders. Only reason why I didn't give it 4 starts. The wind stopper fabric on this one (top half) is pretty easy to tear. I hunt timber and I have a couple tears oh mine just by leaning against a tree. Wish it was more durable. Over all great piece of gear!

This jacket is does exactly what it is designed to do, be worn with waders. It is warm lightweight and wind proof. I love how it fits underneath my delta wading jacket as well. My one caveat or warning to other buyers would be this; if you wear uninsulated breathable waders as opposed to neoprene waders and still hunt in sub freezing temps I would not go with this jacket. Because it's designed to have less bulk it definety has less insulation in lower half. With neoprene waders this would be ideal as anything bulky is hard to deal with and neoprene already has some insulating value. I hike in 2 miles and so I wear uninsulated waders and my lower torso can get a bit chilled with this jacket. For uninsulated wader users I think the Fahrenheit would work better because the bulk is not as big an issue and it offers more insulation in the lower torso. Don't get me wrong I love this jacket I just wish I would have thought the purchase through for my specific situation. On days where it's above freezing it's exactly what I need it's just not quite enough on those days when it's a bit colder. Other than that I give this 4 full stars.

This jacket is outstanding. Fit is true to size. Warmth and performance are unparalleled. However, according to the product description it says optimized for use under waders. This is very true. The lack of insulation below the torso makes this jacket less appropriate for wearing in any very cold hunting or fishing situation in which you don't have the protection of waders for the low back. If you plan to wear without waders and are prone to have your low back get cold, the Fahrenheit Jacket might be a better option. Sitka has thought of everything. Simply the best products available for outdoorsmen.

The Duck Oven is by far the most used jacket during waterfowl season; especially the "second split" in Iowa. It's unbelievably warm...and I really mean that. Almost no bulk and I usually can't even get away with wearing it while setting up. It's perfect for sitting in the blind or layout. I plan to get the Delta Wading Jacket to wear over it (once Sitka has them back in stock). If you can only afford one Sitka jacket for water-fowling this is definitely it. My jacket is 3 years old and still wears like new. It's a little "crinkly" and wouldn't use it for deer but you may hold a different opinion. It stuffs well in a pack and really does fit into waders well. I could ramble on about how great it is but you just need to go try one on yourself!

The Duck Oven is my most used Sitka Gear product throughout the entire ND waterfowl season. Cold weather and high winds are no match for the Duck Oven when used as an outer layer. It is durable, lightweight, can be used under waders, and is not bulky at all. It takes up very little room in a blind bag when compared to any other jacket I have owned. When temperatures become unbearable, the Duck Oven is a perfect, non-bulky insulation to wear under any outer shell. Combined with Sitka Gear's next to skin merino/heavyweight insulation, the Duck Oven was my "go-to" outer layer well into late season. The only exception to that was a handful of extreme weather hunts when an additional outer layer was needed. If I could only own one waterfowl product from Sitka Gear, this is it. This jacket will keep your profile lower, keep you mobile, keep you warmer, and keep you in the field longer... It lives up to it's name, just zip it up, and set that Duck Oven on bake!

Great Jacket. Warm and lightweight. The 1 problem i have with this jacket is the 2 hand warmer pockets are white on the inside, the pockets are large which is great, but the white shows when pockets are open. Its like having a white sock in the middle of the camo pattern and can be seen by ducks and geese from the side view . My son pointed this out to me , so i keep the pockets zipped up. For the expense of these, you should always have the inside a dark color or better yet the same camo pattern. . wish i could add picture to show you

In my opinion Sitka needs to make this jacket with a more durable material on the outside. Don't get me wrong, this is my go to piece for under waders and is top notch but if it had Dakota vest type material on the outside it would be bomb proof.

This became my "go to" piece last year during a sometimes nasty Arkansas season. Very warm by it's self and great under the delta wading jacket. It is hard to believe how much warmer I am staying with so much less bulk. Yes it is more expensive but worth it when you think about the time and money we spend on our sport. If you can only get one piece of Sitka gear this is the one.

I got my Duck Oven jacket 2 seasons ago and haven't looked back. I hunt in southeast Louisiana and the weather can be very unpredictable. Early season, late season, it doesn't matter. This jacket is very versatile and pairs well with the pantanal parka and the bibs. With this combination there is no weather that will keep you out of your honey hole.

I have been waterfowl hunting for nearly 60 years now, and have witnessed the evolution of just about every different kind of outer fabric for protection from the elements--starting with uninsulated waxed cotton (called tin clothing in the Pacific Northwest), and culminating with the Duck Oven jacket. I have never worn a lighter, warmer, more comfortable jacket. It is absolutely the best for multiple weather conditions--I wore it this past year in Buffalo, NY, Portland, OR, and Quantico, VA, and it performed superbly. One caution--I don't believe it is designed to be worn as outer wear in pouring rain. STEVE CRITTENDEN February 4, 2014

As a Gore tester, I have had the privilege of trying several pieces of Sitka's waterfowl line; the Duck Oven is my go to gear. Here in the Central Flyway, we hunt geese in a great variety of conditions. Everything from windblown, frozen ponds to snow-covered bean fields. Having a multi-functional jacket that performs extremely well on its own or as a windproof insulation layer under a Delta Wading jacket, allows me to adapt to several different hunting situations. I highly recommend the Duck Oven jacket to anyone who hunts in multiple weather conditions within the same season.

I love this jacket! The Duck Oven is my favorite waterfowl piece from Sitka. I also own the Kelvin jacket, but the Duck Oven blows away anything else. It is insulated with Primaloft and also has Windstopper, so it is warm as heck on those January days hunting ducks on the river when everything else is frozen. I love the thumb holes, the fit is perfect for layering, and is a great complimentary piece for the Delta Wading jacket. It runs a bit big, so I would suggest ordering a size down from your regular jacket size. As a Gore product tester, I get to use all sorts of Sitka stuff. But this is definitely one of my favorite freezing weather pieces. I have no problem recommending it to everyone that asks.
