Wearing the Boreal Parka and Hudson Bibs hunting waterfowl and going to High School Football games in Minnesota this fall was a God send!!! We were on average 20+ degrees colder than average. 98% of our lakes are now frozen a week before duck hunting actually closes. I was out every weekend of the hunting season with my Sitka Waterfowl Gear!!! It is fantastic, functional, durable, warm, waterproof clothing that will get you comfortably through the worst weather. Late September fishing is Canada hovering between 28-40 degrees in a week of snow and rain. High School Football game in Bemidji, my son was a senior captain on Alexandria’s team, was 37 and raining the whole game. I stayed warm and dry. And breaking ice waterfowl hunting right to the bitter end. By the way, in mid October my son and I on the same night arrowed 10 and 8 point bucks using your Elevated Fanatic Sitka coat!!! Great memories!!! Thx Sitka!!!!

I Wore the Boreal coat (and pants) on a hunt at 7 degrees and the wind blowing and was toasty warm. If you want to stay warm on any hunt, there isn’t a better choice. I also was wearing the “Fudd” hat, another great piece of gear.

Bought this jacket a year ago. Have been on numerous field hunts with it in south dakota chasing snows, to breaking ice with the Boreal under my waders in Minnesota, to using it as a jacket for a south dakota rooster chase on one of the biggest tests you can put it through, -32 degress with a -43 windchill. This jacket does the job. Holds up to the elements and fits snug to your body. If you are whining about it not fitting, probably try them on first. Many great stores across the states that sell these amazing quality jackets. Get yourself one. Wont regret it.

THEIR JACKETS RUN SMALL...I usually wear a Large and need to return and get and XL just to be able to zip up the Boreal over my waders. very warm and dry, plenty of pockets, you'll forget where they are all located. Would definitely find a place and try on first or order the next size up than you normally wear.

The Sitka Boreal jacket is truly worth what you pay for. I personally have owned this jacket for 3 going on 4 years now and have loved it. Living in Minnesota has allowed me to test this jacket to the fullest extent. This coat is not made for 40 degrees you will simply get to hot wearing it. It was built for cold weather. One of the main advantages this coat has is that it’s in goretex which is a life saver. Going out in the rain to duck hunt only works with a good water proof coat. There is two ways of doing that ethier having a warm goretex coat like the boreal or layering underneath with clothing and putting a goretex shell over the top. Other coats without waterproofing simply don’t work, the jacket gets wet and then the cold really starts to feel cold and then you have to go in to warm up. It’s truly amazing to watch the rain it you wearing the Boreal and then watching run right off the coat. The other benefits this coat has is that it was built with comfort and orginization in mind. The amount of pockets is unreal and it’s easy to stay organized. The fit is also a huge benifit this coat is tight where it needs to be and lose where it should be. Overall this is my new favorite coat and I will always buy Sitka for there well thought out gear. Thanks hope this helps the decision. RJ

I started looking for a cold weather hunting jacket earlier this fall after my old on just wasn't cutting it anymore, and heard great things about Sitka. Ordered a L and it was just a little too snug, exchanged for an XL, and it fits much better. I must be between sizes though as it's not perfect- the sleeves and length is great, but a little big in the chest. However I will be able to layer much better under it now instead, which will be good. If Sitka made Tall products this would be 4 stars. The quality and construction is amazing. Pockets are warm and well placed, zipper is rugged, the high collar and hood is a must- a great built jacket. Used it for the first time last weekend in 34 degrees with NW wind and light rain, and stayed incredibly warm and dry on the long boat ride and in the blind. Looking forward to many more years of use.

To start this review off I would like to tell anyone who reads this post that this coat is awesome. If you are ify or wishy wash about getting one do it. The area I live in is Mid Minnesota. If your not familiar with the area we have a vast range of seasons and tempatures, summers in the 90s and winter temps as low as -20. That being said this coat handles -20 great, but on the other hand if your winters are around 40 degrees this coat might make ya a little warm. My only complaint is the zipper some times it gets stuck on material under it. So it's not a bad zipper they just should of sewed the material underneath tighter. One other thing to be careful of is with the inside of the jacket. I have noticed that the fabric holding the insulation in is relatively delicate. So be careful not to where a rough under garment. Sitka did a great job with this coat. Overall thoughts are positive. Pick yourself up one of these and get lost in the great outdoors.

A very well constructed coat, but I really have not had it long enough to experience all of the elements in my area. I'm sure it will do well like the other Sitka gear I have purchased. The only negative I have with this coat thus far is the front zipper. The interior storm flap is constantly getting jammed in the zipper so it doesn't operate properly - very frustrating! My wife is looking to use a strip of Velcro to keep the storm flap pulled back and away from the zipper, but that defeats the purpose of why it is there in the first place. I wish there was a simple solution to this issue, so if anyone has any suggestions I would welcome the feedback.

I just returned from a hunting trip with 25 mph winds, 15 degrees and a sleet storm. My boreal jacket was AWESOME!!! I was warm all day and 100% dry. I also liked that the jacket was not at all bulky. In my opinion the best cold weather waterfowl jacket ever made, nothing is even close. I usually take an XL but went with a 2XL and it fits perfect with a few layers underneath. I am not a gore tester so I am not biased. Worth every penny and then some.

Very well designed jacket. Going from the Drake 4 in 1 to this coat I was instantly impressed. From the two sets of lofty fleece lined pockets to the internal cargo net on both sides that can keep extra gloves warm or accommodate large chemical hand warmers this jacket has thought put into it! The fill really lofts up to create a warm barrier to trap heat and the gore tex keeps you dry. They also designed the coat to have zero insulation in the last 8" or so of the jacket so it does not absorb water when deep wading setting dekes or grabbing birds. The shell pockets are lined with tough fabric to keep from tearing or wearing and have magnets to keep the flaps up so grabbing shells is a breeze. My only insight would be to go a size up if buying this for a true late season jacket. I fell into the Large parameters but after trying it on over a sweat shirt and then putting it over heavy neoprene waders I quickly realized I needed an XL and sitka had no problem exchanging it for me. The larger size felt bulky at first but when shouldering my gun I felt no restriction at all. I am NOT a Gore gear tester so I have a completely un-biased opinion. The price really is up there but what you get for that money is well worth it.

The addition of this jacket has taken the cold weather gear for waterfowl hunters to a new level. The idea that a hunter can now have a down jacket that is 100% waterproof is going to allow hunters to stay in the field longer and harvest more birds. The fit of the jacket is great and doesn't feel to bulky when wearing is. This will allow the hunter to have a full range of motion when drawing on approaching birds. The hood on the jacket provides excellent protection and actually moves with the hunter so that your view is not obstructed. Hunters will have ample pockets to store accessories for a full days hunt. Two fleece lined handwarmer pockets are set high on the jacket. The Boreal Jacket is designed to keep hunters warm, but you will still want to layer underneath to provide a hunting system. As a GORE gear tester, I have been able to use this jacket in all conditions including temps down to -20 and windchills in the -40 degree range. I was remarkably comfortable in the Boreal Jacket.

I used this jacket on an all day duck hunt during the blizzard that hit the St. Louis area on 1/5/14 and it kept me warm and dry all day with the core shirt and traverse shirt as layers underneath the jacket. Yes - it is pricey - however, all day long I kept thanking myself for the purchase. Highly recommended if you hunt during extremely cold/wet conditions!
