Women's Fanatic Jacket [NEW]
Your sanctuary from the biting cold of the rut, the Fanatic Jacket will keep you hunting all day long for that one fleeting opportunity. A Berber fleece face silences the GORE® WINDSTOPPER® barrier, while Primaloft® Silver Insulation traps body heat right where you need it. Our innovative diagonal-zip design seals out the wind, while the zippered front muff keeps your digits toasty. A removable hood, magnetic closure rangefinder pocket, safety harness pass-through port, and internal gasketed cuffs finish out this finely honed tool.
- Berber fleece
- Insulated built-in hand muff
- Diagonal full zip
- Rangefinder pocket
- Safety harness pass through port
The Fanatic Jacket gives you the edge on November’s cold and cutting winds. At its core, you’ll find 133 g/m2 PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation that traps heat right where you need it, shielded by a 100% windproof GORE® WINDSTOPPER® membrane. A thickly piled, hydrophobic Berber fleece face fabric silences the exterior.
Articulated patterning eliminates bulk and frees you up to move, bend, twist and draw. The full-length diagonal zipper seals out the wind, while the built-in insulated hand muff keeps your digits toasty and your arms relaxed. Strategically placed pockets make for easy access to your rangefinder and grunt tube, and the safety harness pass-through port keeps your attachment point comfortably in position.

I am the person who is always cold. I've worn this jacket and the Fanatic bibs in well below freezing weather to deer hunt and was so comfortable that I was dozing in the stand! The fit is wonderful, it is well suited for a woman's body. It's very soft and QUIET (noise while stealth hunting is a huge pet peeve of mine, so I really appreciate the quietness of the material). I was able to move around a bit without making a sound. It's warm without feeling bulky and kept me very comfortable for a long sit. I've also worn it while training my dog on sub freezing, windy days and was able to move around with ease while staying warm.

This stuff is awesome! Wound up getting a men's small as the appropriate women's size was unavailable. I am the only female employee at a golf course - outside, all day. A friend, who is an avid hunter (and hates being cold), recommended the brand to me. So glad he did. I got the jacket, bibs, gloves and headband. All are well made, comfortable and insanely functional. 21 degrees today with a wind chill in the teens and every part of me that was covered by Sitka was warm. The guys were freezing today. I was not. Two final thoughts: 1) you guys should make boots and 2) whatever you are paying Jamie (in customer service), it is not enough. She is the person the whole world hopes they talk to when they call for help.

I have used the Women’s Fanatic Jacket (and bibs) this entire season with great success and satisfaction! Some of my favorite features: 1) It keeps me toasty warm. I was tired of having to leave the stand early because I was too darn cold. Never had a problem with this jacket and the matching bibs. Cold frosty mornings and I hardly noticed (and I get cold very easily). The hand warmer pocket is brilliant. It is plush and super cozy inside AND because it is close to the body (as opposed to outside my jacket like the muff I used to use), my body heat keeps it warmer. 2) It fits! This was made for women and sized just right. My experience is that it fits true to size. 3. Excellent range of motion, which for me as a bowhunter is especially imperative. 4) The material is great - soft and quiet. 5) Camo pattern is excellent. Deer, coyote, raptors, you name it, they did not “see” me. 6) No pink! Thank you Sitka for realizing that just because it is a women’s line does not mean it has to have the color pink all over it. Lastly, I would just mention I agree with the previous reviewer that you need to take care zipping the main jacket zipper as it seems to be a stress point. I found it helps to get the zipper started up just a little, re-adjust the jacket, and then finish zipping all the way up. So far absolutely no issues with function - just takes a little more care. Overall, I highly recommend this system of clothing over any other I have tried (and I have gone through quite a few). I look forward to putting this on every hunt and it allows me to focus not on how cold I am but rather on what really matters! Thank you Sitka!

I received the Sitka Fanatic bibs and jacket for my 48th birthday from my boyfriend who owns an archery/gun sporting goods store in the Northeast. So, lucky me, I always get great gifts! I have been bow hunting for over 25 years and hunt in the Northeast, primarily MA, NY and CT. I used to be an outdoor writer for a hunting and fishing magazine and had the opportunity to field test lots of products for women. I wish the magazine was still in print because I would love to introduce other bow hunters to your product! We are bow only but hunt through the season until Dec 31. I have field tested Browning and Under Armour lines and own several of their late season products. But I LOVE the Sitka gear! Yesterday I wore the Fanatic bibs and jacket and started in 14 degree weather for the morning hunt. Typically I have to layer, which is difficult because I am only 5'2". Wearing so many layers and being short adds alot of bulk because most clothes are made for taller women, therefore I'm carrying even extra bulk. This not only makes it difficult to walk to stand, but also to climb in a climber. I wore this suit with nothing but a thin moisture wicking base layer and was so comfortable on stand! The windstopper in the Sitka gear is KEY! I used to wear a Browning windstopper sweater but it added alot of bulk. The Sitka gear was perfect! The side zipper on the jacket took some getting used to, but it serves a purpose to have that full hand muff. I used to also use a muff at all times because as a bow hunter, I am not a fan of gloves either. The other front pockets gave me enough storage for my release, my phone, my spare hat and flashlight so I didn't even really need to bother with my pack or my muff because everything I needed was at my fingertips! I had to walk through a stream in the morning because there was no where to cross and the Goretex in these bibs assured that I kept dry and warm! The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because after field testing so many other lines, I am still searching for the perfect bib with a leg zipper to allow for easy access to "use the ladies room" from the stand. Although I appreciate the full leg zipper on these bibs, I wish someone would put the zipper on the inside of the legs for a full zipper opening to allow for access. It is not easy, especially wearing bibs, to gain access and an inside zipper would solve everything because you could keep all your clothing on, including your safety harness while doing what you need to do. I have been able to master this from 25 ft in a stand but alas, I have to remove my binocs and jacket and pull the bibs down. We like to stay in stand all day so it does make things challenging. I've wanted to approach someone to put a zipper in for me, but I don't want to ruin my gear. The only other reason I am not giving 5 stars is the camo pattern is a little off for the Northeast, but will be fine during the late season. I started off loving Sitka when someone at the shop gave us a gaiter for me to wear. Your products are definitely hands down the warmest and most functional I have used in the field. All I needed while wearing your gear were my arctic shield boot blankets for my feet and I was able to sit comfortably all day! Thanks Sitka for making a functional line for women! Please let me know if you ever add an inside full zipper, I would love to field test!
