Wind Protection

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.


WINDSTOPPER® products shelter hunters from the adverse effects of bone-chilling winds. The WINDSTOPPER™ membrane works with our base layers to prevent overheating and perspiration build-up by allowing moisture vapor to easily escape.

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.
