Awesome hunt clothes. Pricy but I guess you get what you pay for.....But recommend you order at least one size larger or suffer the return and exchange process.

Always an issue being a lefty. Hunt with outfitters and stands are always set for right handed people, have to special order firearms because there never in stock and now can’t get my favorite jacket in the lite version. Because they are not making it in Lefty.....

I have owned the Fanatic Lite bibs and pants for two season now. Very comfortable and streamline which makes it great for an archer. If you like a longer jacket this might now be for you but matched up with the bibs for me its a perfect fit. It is not windproof which makes it a little chilly on 30 degree days with wind but with good layers its perfect and its all I wear in the rut here in PA.

Just received in mail (along with the matching bibs) and have one positive and one negative thing to say. First for the positive: it exceeded the expectations of quality and comfort. The sideways zipper for full kangaroo pouch is sick! What innovation! Unfortunately I do have a negative: I know hunting isn't a fashion show but being 6' 3" 215lbs I ordered the XL. I look like I ordered a belly shirt. I'm going to exchange for an XXL to see if that's any better but if you're tall like me, might want to try a different Sitka jacket.

I live in a climate that has December temperature ranges from 20 - 60 degrees. The Fanatic Lite Jacket offers just the right amount of warmth for the moderate days, while still allow just enough room for layering. The comfort of the performance fit is unmatched. But don't be fooled by the term. Performance fit is built to move with you, while still allowing enough room to layer beneath as needed for cooler sits. I wouldn't wear this particular piece in Minnesota in January, but it's excellent for Virginia throughout the mid-late bow season. I'm 5'6", 148lbs, and the medium provides me an exact fit- neither too big or too small, while still sufficient room for merino wool under layering, with the Fanatic Lite Bibs

This was my first Sitka purchase and it certainly didn't disappoint!!! This "light" is perfect for my Southern Illinois weather. Wore it on opening day and I'm confident I can layer up under it and be toasty for the bulk of the 3 1/2 month bow season!!! Won't be my last purchase!!!

Awesome Jacket! The cross zipper keeps the zipper from digging into your throat when fully zipped up, and allows for the built in hand muff which is is an awesome feature as well. I typically wear this jacket mid season with temps starting or falling to around 40 degrees. I love it for late Sept- Mid Oct sits, if the wind isnt howling out of the North yet. With proper layering one could easily wear it in cooler temps as well. It is also a very quiet jacket, and the finish repels very light precip.

This jacket is awesome. I love the rangefinder pocket. The knit face allows this jacket to be super quiet and the honeycomb fleece interior gives the jacket a good amount of warmth. A great jacket.

Everything about this jacket is perfectly thought out. It's very warm, works great with the Fanatic Hoody and I absolutely love the pockets. My favorite feature to this jacket is the "rangefinder pocket." They really undersell the size of this pocket. I use a long distance range finder when i go hunting and the rangefinder fit in the pocket with ease. I also was able to fit a medium sized pair of 10x42 binoculars in the pocket while i was walking to my stand and i never once felt like it was going to fall out. Honestly the pocket completely eliminated the need for a binocular harness for me. The only downside is it runs a little small compared to their other garments. Not enough to make it uncomfortable but a little tight.

The best; nothing compares to sitka's thoughtfully designed products that are engineered by people who fully understand the useage habits of its athletes. This jacket is unlike any hunting jacket I've owned and one of the most notable aspects of it, is in the fact that if you look at the arm sleeves from below, you can see they're sewn differently than any other jacket to allow greater arm ROM for drawing the bow back.

If you're on a budget, get this one size up and layer heavily. It'll keep you warm in 25 degree days with no wind easily. Pair it with their awesome thick hat and a layered bottom. Use hand warmers in the center pocket and you're set.

After a couple seasons with the Fanatic Lite set, I can say I'm very pleased. It's super comfortable and quiet; exactly what you need for whitetails. It's ideal for days where the temperatures are 35-50 degrees with minimal wind. Great job on another kit sitka!

There's only two small reasons I don't give this jacket all 4 stars. 1) it runs a little small so I had to exchange it. And 2) the diagonal zipper is hard to get used to and is just plain out weird. But other than that, it is an awesome jacket that can be worn from the first day of the season all the way to the last day if you layer up properly. The built in hand warmer is the best I've ever seen on a jacket. I do still sitting hunts so warm clothes are a necessity for me since I'm not moving to keep warm, and this jacket is my saving grace in the late season. Definitely won't regret this purchase.

Bought the complete system, Jacket perfect for early-late fall hunts, love the RF pocket, hand warmer muff, very quiet. However fabric is fragile, tore small area in sleeve pulling it on over shirt + base layers. Outer coating thin and soft. May be more suitable for a midlayer. Will see how the warranty with Sitka fairs after Hunting season, with the premium price I hope they stand behind their product.

I am beyond amazed on how well this jacket blends in! I have had 13 different Bull elk within 40 yards of me for the past week now. Not one spooked. The jacket is beyond comfortable and has kept me warm in 25 degree temp! Thanks Sitka!
