Why We Made This

We saw the need for a late-season bib that could withstand cold days sitting in the stand while providing the most advanced visual and auditory concealment. Our approach was to design a bib that would protect you from not just the cold but the wind, while minimizing the noise created from layers of gear. Working with animal scientists and ungulate specialists and using controlled laboratory tests, we developed the warmest, quietest bib on the planet by utilizing a GORE-TEX INFINIUM with WINDSTOPPER® barrier sandwiched between Berber fleece face fabric and Primaloft® SIlver insulation. This updated fabric package is half the audible engagement distance as compared to our previous Fanatic line. Additionally, we incorporated compression-resistant insulation in the seat to create a shield from vital heat loss.

Just buy these! You will NOT be disappointed. However for those who would like additional details, the bibs are incredibly warm and comfortable for using in Wisconsin archery and rifle woods in Nov/Dec freezing temperatures. Should help you stay in the woods longer. In addition to the comfort, the bibs are ultra quiet and offer substantial pockets for storing any gear you wish to have handy.

I absolutely can’t believe how good the Fanatic System is. First off my body gets frozen in around 30-40 minutes in 50°F weather if I stop moving around. Wearing the Fanatic Bibs and Fanatic Jacket even with some junk Walmart base layers under my Sitka Mountain Jacket and Timberline Pants, we got down to about 20°F and I sat for 4 hours with just a little tiny chill. But I’m convinced if I had proper boots to keep my feet warm I would have been perfect. I have had a successful hunt this year with 3 more tags to fill and I really have Sitka to thank. If I didn’t spend the money on the right equipment for the job this year with Sitka I wouldn’t have been able to sit. Yeah I can torture myself and freeze with the other hunters but for me, it’s not ethical to take a shot when you’re shivering so bad you can’t hold the rifle steady.

ALSO: these things DO NOT stain, I was amazed I washed my bibs and accidentally got some blood on them and the blood came right out. I washed on medium temp with NO detergent or soap. The blood washed out with water I couldn’t believe it, especially after it had sat on the bibs for 10 hours before I finally made it home and got them in the wash.

JUST SPEND THE MONEY! Not only will you not regret it but you will be happy you spent the money on Sitka.

Excellent heavy weight bib. Unbelievable variety of pockets and hand warmers. -7°C and strong north winds didn’t keep me out of the stand and it paid off. The breathability scale may be a little off though… if you’re active, you’re sweating. Regardless I 100% recommend buying.

The Fanatic Bibs are truly the best bibs I have ever owned. Every piece of detail of this garment has been meticulously thought out and is first class all the way. These bibs are extremely warm and functional here in the Southeast and I truly love the full length zips which makes them easy to get on and off. This is coming from a guy who wears a 14 boot.

I call this the walking sleeping bag. The Fanatic system is warm, comfortable, quiet, durable, and my go-to gear for cold late season hunts in NY. The long side zippers are excellent for removing the bibs without taking your boots off in the field. The Fanatic system has allowed me to extend my hunts in cold weather that I couldn't do with other gear.

I hunt all over Wisconsin with this jacket and sat in negative temps with wind over 20 mph for 6+ hours and was not cold at all. These bibs combined with the Fanatic Jacket are it! I can't believe I didn't buy sooner! Im a person that gets cold very easy and for anyone that hunts in cold weather the fanatic set is the best out there. Its so warm, comfortable and quiet as can be. Gone are the days of 2 base layers with 2 pairs of pants. Easiest pants or bibs to put on with boots that I have ever tried. Pretty expensive but I have no regrets because I should never need another pair.

My favorite piece of gear is the fanatic bibs and jacket. I am a bow hunter and this is exactly what the doctor ordered. Extremely warm. If Temps are In the single digits I just add an equinox hoodie or the Celsius middy And there’s nothing I can’t handle for an all day sit. Everybody complains about burs From walking through brush on recoveries. I have not wore my hunting clothes on a recovery in 15 years as I know better than that. That’s how you destroyed good clothes with thorns and Breyers and burs.

I always give the deer time to expire. I always walk back to the truck and throw on my carhart bibs and jacket. Then go back in for the recovery even if my walk is an hour out. I understand some guys don’t have this option and I get it. But if you do have the option to get out of your hunting clothes before you start tracking.

Extremely impressed with the warmth and quietness of the bibs & jacket. Equally as unimpressed with the durability of the bibs. Walked through about 40 yards of underbrush on a recovery mission and had tons of pulled threads and a few small tears in the front of the bibs.

Probably the best designed product in the entirely line up. The only thing that should be added is waterPROOF. If the incinerator series could crossbreed with the fanatic series it'd be a winner.

I like the idea of no fleece where the burrs stick, and it mostly works. Good pockets for holding cellphone, accessories, headlamps etc. and I really like the external pocket for slipping stuff I access often in and out of. The only 2 fixes I would suggest is actual full length zippers like on the incinerator and that way your boots wouldn't get mud all over the inside when putting them on at your tree. They could be a little warmer, there's really not much insulation.

I’ve sat in 30° weather the last three days in the morning, they’ve kept me warm along with my older Fanatic jacket and a pair of merino base layers underneath. I’m so glad I got these, moved up on the Stratus pants, these have pockets everywhere, actually nice and light unlike my friends bibs that are super bulky and heavy. I am also wearing the Stratus beanie and fanatic neck Gaiter. I would highly encourage you to buy these to stay warm and I’m from Florida, hunting in Georgia so I’m naturally a person who does not tolerate the cold well.

I finally got to use these the other day in the stand. The winds were approx 20mph and temp felt around high teens. With these bibs on and a some under layers, I had no idea the temp was actually what it was! I think I would’ve been fine with out an extra layer under the bibs that I wore, but it was the first time so I didn’t want to under dress. I’m very impressed! Just got the fanatic jacket to go with it. So we’ll see how these hold up as the temperature starts to drop! Overall so far, great product and quality, worth the money if you need cold weather clothes, and shipping is fast.

I've had these since late summer but couldn't use them until this past weekend in WI for bow hunting. Yesterday morning we had 40 mph winds with an actual temperature of 29 degrees. I had on some long johns, sweat pants, and these bibs and I didn't feel a thing. Also had the Fanatic Vest up top underneath my regular cold-weather jacket and was toasty all morning. Would have called it quits in my previous gear but I honestly couldn't feel any wind - to the point that it was unsettling. Stayed in the stand all morning and landed my first bow buck! Thanks Sitka for a great piece!

These were the first quality late season camo hunting bibs I had ever purchased. They kept me warm in the stand and gave me enough warmth to bag a late season buck with my bow last November. They do seem a little bulky. The biggest drawback I noticed is that they are so warm that you either have to pack them out to the stand or have the side zippers fully open if it's really cold to prevent from sweating. I do like the zippered legs for venting/heat regulation. Overall, a great product that is very quiet and keeps you in the stand longer during frigid northern WI winters.

Very poor construction and warranty on this pant. The puffy looking material is actually very thin and tears easily allowing the insulation to come out. Mine tore within a couple months of purchase, only wore them half a dozen times, still don't know exactly how the tear occurred because I didn't notice it when it happened. Sitka did not cover this under warranty, their warranty is basically useless. If you are in Canada they send you a url for a company you can pay to fix the pant. They do not have the quality or warranty you would expect paying this much for a pant. I will not be buying any more Sitka gear after this disappoint.

With the exception of thr rage finder grunt tube pocket (On the jacket). Some attention needs to be put in there.

The fanatic bibs... Wear do I start with these babies. Being a freeze baby in ne Ohio I get cold easily. But I like to hunt a lot. So far this year the low has been 18 and wearing my heavyweight bottoms, stratus pants and these bibs, my lower half has not even gotten a chill. Super quiet, soft, pockets, I even asked my wife if they made my butt look big and she said no. Lol. Yes they are expensive, but yes they work. But don't make the mistake of thinking I'll just buy the bibs and coat and be warm... It's the whole system that works together to keep your warm. Also whatever size pants you wear in the ews, or stratus, or whatever... Continue with that same size as you proceed to the next layer. Sitka has taken that into consideration. When I'm all layered up, everything fits perfectly. But if I just put on the bibs or coat without the layers, they're big on me. If you want to hunt longer into the season, and you can afford it. Do it. I've never done a review before, but after getting thus whole system, I was so pleased that my wife said I needed to let other people know as well.
