Why We Made This

Hunters need the absolute best protection from the chill of long sits during the rut. We designed the Stratus with GORE® WINDSTOPPER® to create a fully-featured, 100% windproof pant that is optimized for these exact conditions. We utilized micro-grid fleece for its warmth-to-weight ratio and gave the pant an articulated patterning to provide a comfortable fit when in a seated position allowing your legs total range of motion.

Very well made, wear a 32 in pants and the medium fit perfect in the waist and legs, my only complaint is the pattern is a little lighter than I like for hunting in hardwoods but overall warm and comfortable piece.

These pants are excellent. I find them warm enough on their own into the mid to high 30s. Quiet, warm and comfortable. Hip zippers would be a nice addition to allow for heat release while making the trek though.

These are my go to pants for Whitetail season here in Maine. They keep me toasty warm even on the coldest days. They are super quiet and do a great job at keeping out the wind and any water from snow or rain that I come into contact with. I have bought multiple pairs so that way I can change them out during long hunting trips up north. To me, the Stratus gear is the best gear that Sitka sells!

Excellent piece of gear. I found them really warm and well made. One nice thing, the thigh pockets are thick and double as hand warmers. Only complaint is the belt sucks. It does not stay tight. Belt is nice, easy to use, just will not stay tight so makes it pretty much useless. Over all excellent pant for mild conditions, add a layer underneath and they could handle pretty cold conditions. Worth the money.

Great Pants. Comfortable quiet and warm. My only complaint is the sizing. These pants are big and baggie, I am 6'4" around 210 and order the Large Tall and I am legit swimming in them. Typically, the large tall fits me perfectly. Not sure what I will do with them since they are too big. Maybe I am used to the fit from the big game hunting line, where the pants are a bit more form fitting and true to size. I wish there was a whitetail pant similar to the mountain pant.

I bit the bullet and finally got nice gear, and don’t regret it. I used to wear fleece pants under a gore outer pant, and haven’t had to put that outer shell on since switching to these.

Finally purchased Sitka Gear this year and glad I did. Have worn these pants and matching jacket in temps from 60°F to 35°F degrees with only a base layer at times. Warm when days got cold but not hot on warmer days. Cuts wind and the pattern is great for treestand hunting. I’m 5’9” 180lbs. Wear a 34/30 jean. Purchased the large and it fits great. Have a little extra room in the waist but not bad when base layers are added for layering.

Great product! I would recommend this product to anyone. These pants do run a little fitted, so keep that in mind when ordering. I prefer pants over bibs, so I went with the stratus pants over the bibs. With proper layering, these pants are bullet proof. My only complain is that there is no back pocket and no zippered legs. If you added those two things, this would be my favorite sitka piece.

I wore these pants yesterday evening for the first time after purchasing them, and I am head over heels In love with them. They are the most comfortable pair of hunting pants that I have ever owned, and with me comfort is key. Very quite, extremely warm, and was very impressed with the pocket space. Not having a back pocket will take some getting used too, but I’m willing to sacrifice that for how great these pants are. For size, I’m 6’1, 225 pounds, with an athletic build and a Large fit me perfect. I highly recommend these pants for the serious hunter looking to up their game, and push through long chilly sits in the stand.

Best pair of hunting pants, ever! These pants are so warm, they will allow you to hunt into the late season. I hunted in 28 degree weather with just these and one pair of long johns. I know everyone wants to know about fit. I am 5 foot 7, 180 lbs. Large is just slightly about 1 inch long for me, but with my boots on they are perfect. With these pants, I will never have to wear a pair of long johns and sweat pants under my outer pants again. The pockets are extremely quiet. There is no back pocket, which took me a little bit to get accustomed to, but I just left my wallet in the truck. These pants are well worth every penny. They will not disappoint.

Picked these up in the middle of the season. I hunt in central Michigan and also in the U.P. Wore these pants when it was too warm for fanatic bibs. They're durable, fit great, and seriously block wind. Treestand hunting in 40 degree weather with gusting wind, only had a baselayer and stratus pant and I was more than comfortable. These will be my go to pant for when its not cold enough for fanatic.

The perfect mid-season pants. These pants get worn more than any other hunting pants I own. I love the all of the side pockets, the belt, the material, and how the WindStopper blocks wind so well. If you're a bowhunter, I don't see how you could pass on these pants. The pants are extremely comfortable and I often find myself wearing them around the house for comfort. I'm 6 foot and with a 38 waist and they fit true to size for me. I think the ideal temperature range for these pants is 60 degrees to the high 30's, although I have worn them down to 20 degrees with a base layer and sweatpants under them. WELL WORTH THE MONEY.

Wore these pants for the first time last night in windy and upper 40 degree air temps. Initial impressions are that I’ve made the right choice in moving from the equinox pants to these. I had two layers on my top and just the stratus on the bottom, my upper body was cool but lower body was warm and very comfortable. The wind stopper is a game changer and the outer of these pants make them super quiet. Cargo pockets in the legs make it super easy to put items inside with easy access and also to put your hands in while sitting down. I’m 5’11” 197 lbs and fit perfectly in a large regular!

Was originally upset they didn't offer a Stratus bib but now glad I ended up with the pant due to our ever changing Texas climate. Comes with a built in belt unlike the 90% pant which is nice. Haven't tested sub freezing weather but was very comfortable in early morning high 30's without a base layer. Without a doubt all I'll need in our area from mid to late season. Elevated II camo is icing on the cake.

Just received this pair of pants for Christmas. It's like wearing sweatpants to be honest. Great for mid 60's (no layering) to upper 20's (heavy layering). Now I live and hunt in Alabama where we don't have very cold winters but very humid (50-75%) which make it worse. I layer this with two pairs of mid weight long johns and I'm good till 20's. Only advice I give is to order a size larger if you plan on layer to your own preferences because their clothes are "athletic fit" so little room if you order true size.

Fantastic pants! I'm a big guy. Most hunting appearall in my size, XXL, are just way too baggy and simply doesn't fit correctly. Not Sitka Stratus Pants. They fit perfect. I was a little hesitant purchasing my usual size due to the layering aspect, but tried it anyway and glad I did. Not too big, not too tight. I 100% recommend anything Sitka, I've not been disappointed with any of my purchases. Yes, people say their products are pricey, but "Good stuff ain't cheap and cheap stuff ain't good". It's been in the 30's in south GA with 15-20 mph winds, I paired the Stratus Pants with heavyweight core bottoms and haven't once been uncomfortable. Thanks Sitka great product!

I used these pants throughout the entire Iowa bow season last year. Incredibly versatile. I started out with no base layer underneath for the early season but as it got later into the season, I layered up with the core heavyweight bottoms underneath and that was enough to take me through November and early December. Pockets are tapered well to not snag when walking through the woods and have a silent snap. Surprisingly durable too. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a pant they can wear all season

These will be my go to pants for mid to late season. They're comfortable and well thought out. Love the leather spot to clip my knife on the pocket. That will help these pants last much longer because I always wear a knife.

The only issue I have, and this is the reason I deducted 1/2 a star, is the sizing. I am a consistent 32" waist, so I ordered a medium tall. That should range from 31-33". Well they were just too snug.

For me, the new Stratus pants are a vast improvement over the old version. These seem to be lighter and just as warm as the old version. I was happy to see they removed almost all of the lighter polyester type material that was on the old version. The briars loved that stuff. Never used or cared for the boot gaiters on the old version either. Really like the fleece backing in the cargo pockets. I hunt from a tree saddle much of the time. I can stick my hands in these pockets to keep them warm when chilled. Really tough to use the Kangaroo pouch on some other items hunting from the tree saddle. I do not care for the belt they include with all the newer style pants. Especially, on these. It just does not function well. The old Bomber belt works great with them.

Purchased the next to skin undershirts along with the Stratus Pants and Jacket. Everything was sized in XL and fit me as expected. Not tight but close and comfortable. Except for the jacket which I mistakenly ordered in 2XL. Turns out with all the layering the 2XL fit well on the arms but a little baggy in the middle. Long story short, I went out this weekend in 29 Degrees and sat in treestand with no issues. I was warm all day and it allowed me to stay out when others went back to camp to get warm. This resulted in my first ever Whitetail Buck, 10 point on the ground! This system works and I won't wear anything else.

I submitted a review on the stratus jacket as well, this system is amazing. I called Sitka for some guidance and fit questions. I am not a skin and bones man and like my gear to function together and work for me. The stratus fit allows for nice layering if you need it and still keeps the function. The set is great so far this year with temps into the 20s. I run a little warm so once it gets above 45-50 I usually switch to the Equinox system. The folks at Sitka put a lot of thought into the gear and it shows. I view their gear like I do my bow and rifles. You get what you pay for and good stuff costs money and great stuff a little more. I have gear from all their collections and have not been disappointed once with the gear or the immaculate customer service.

These have been my go to pant for the season so far with over a dozen sits in them. They fit very comfortably and are very warm for there weight. The Stratus wind stopper membrane cuts the wind very well, making these pants really shine. I have worn them down into the low 30s so far paired with a light baselayer on most days and the heavy weight bottoms over the light base layers on colder mornings. The new fleece is also very quiet as well. In conjunction with the Stratus jacket, Fanatic Hoody, and the ability to add the Shacket underneath the jacket, I will not have a problem wearing this suit into the low 20s before switching to the Fanatic Suit. In fact I will probably be selling the Fanatic to pick up the Incinerator, because the Stratus covers a very large range of temperatures and overlaps well into the Fanatic temperature range in my opinion.
