Why We Made This

Hunting beanies shouldn’t be an afterthought, much less purchased last minute at the truck stop. Our approach was to make a must-have beanie that was integral to a hunting system. We designed the Stratus with GORE® WINDSTOPPER® laminate to protect your head from the wind and micro-grid fleece to fight off the cold on those long days in the stand. A 4-way stretch ear band keeps you warm without sacrificing your hearing.

Once the weather hits 60 degrees and below, I ditch the hats and switch over to a beanie. I wear this beanie on 90% of my hunts. It's very warm and the WindStopper in it works great. I've worn it down into the teens and not needed anything warmer. I do wish it came down a little farther on my ears but I realize I have a very big head. Overall, 5 star product.

Great fit
Keeps me head warm

From 50 degrees down to 20’s when you pair it with hood on fanatic hoody and/or neck gaiter. Great for walking when it’s cold too! Only thing I would tell Sitka to change is make one in orange too! I’m so bummed when I have to stop using it when rifle season starts!

keeps you somewhat warm, however, my hat size is 7.5 and it won't cover my ears. Wish they would make different sizes. Hesitant to buy the jet stream hat because looks like it's the exact same.

Love Sitka can't buy your hats I have a fat head please make two options for sizing on beanies and all of your fitted hats please!!! The stratus and fanatic look mighty comfy.

I lied in one of the other reviews. I stated that the Status vest was the most used item in my hunting apparel. Well, I would have to say this beanie goes with me on every single hunt regardless of temps. This beanie is perfect in every way. I ordered the fanatic beanie for a little extra warmth in the late season because I was so impressed with the stratus beanie, but I'm skeptical due to previous reviews on the fanatic beanie. This one fits so perfectly that if I had to recommend just one, this one would be an obvious choice.

Warm and quiet but runs a bit small. If your hat/head size is larger than 7 1/2 it will be too tight and give you a headache.

I wear this beanie a lot. Comfortable, quiet, warm and windproof. I owned the older version. I did not think it could be improved upon. I think I like this version better!

This beanie is wear it is at! Great piece of gear for mid to late season. Wearing a beanie makes everything on the hunt so easy, allows wearing a head light and taking on and off layers. Matched with the Status System it is the best 'go to' gear for White Tail.
