Why We Made This
We found hunters were needing a fully-featured late-season jacket that could withstand cold winds while remaining ultra-silent. We set out to tackle this need and more with the Fanatic. We sound tested fabric compared to whitetail hearing engagement and netted out with a GORE-TEX INFINIUM with WINDSTOPPER® barrier sandwiched between Berber fleece face fabric and Primaloft® SIlver insulation. Because of our innovative diagonal-zip design, we were able to include a pass-through hand muff lined in Berber fleece for exceptional warmth. To round out the design, we added functional pockets for a rangefinder and grunt tube that flank the diagonal zipper for quick at-hand needs.
