The Celsius Shacket takes the concept of body-mapping to the extreme, giving you the insulation you need, only where you need it. A first-of-its-kind construction incorporates a diagonal full-length zipper and built-in front hand muff with short sleeves that leave zero bulk on your forearms, completely eliminating string contact. Quilted construction and quiet zipper pulls suppress noise.

Delivering warmth exactly where you need it, the Celsius Shacket plays multiple roles in your system, taking on the tasks of pullover, vest, and jacket. Ideal as an insulation piece for the mid and late season, it functions quite well as an outer layer once in the stand.
Years of singular focus on functionality have resulted in a piece like nothing you’ve ever worn. Better than a vest, the short sleeves hold in heat generated under your arms, while still leaving your elbows and forearms free. An ultra-quiet mircofleece sheaths 80 g/m2 and 100g/m2 PrimaLoft® Silver Hi-Loft insulation, which retains warmth even when wet, and dries remarkably quickly. The sandwich of silent microfleece and advanced synthetic insulation is quilted to compact the fabric and minimize bulk. A safety harness pass-through port integrates with your connection point, while the diagonal zipper leaves your anchor points free and makes room for the built-in hand muff that keeps your fingers warm, dexterous, and deadly.

for here in NC, it is a great system. it keeps me cool in the rut, where its usually 40-60 degrees, and i usually layer it on top of a base layer and a hoodie. works good, I have not used it as an insulation layer, but would see the problems the side zipper would create if it was used in that way. however, since i use it as an outer layer, the side zip is one of my favorite features. to each his own, but it is clear that sitka was keeping southern white tail hunters in mind when designing this piece, seeing that midwest hunters would likely use the fanatic system.

While this seems like an odd thing, this piece really does bring versatility to my system. I'm glad I added this one to the bag.

I love this "vest." Great for insulating or wearing as an outter layer in warmer weather. I live and hunt in Alabama where we don't have very cold winter, but they are very humid (50-75% average) which makes it seem colder. Only thing I would advise is ordering a size larger if you plan on layering more than a pair of long johns or t-shirt, their clothes don't leave much room for your own personal layering technique.

This is an incredibly versatile item. I have wore it under other jackets as well as an outer layer. The possibilities are endless. and with no forearms to bulk up it is a bowhunters dream layering item.

First let me say that I have a bunch of Sitka gear and love most of it. I even like this thing. It was the first piece that I bought and I was enamored with the design as well as the brand. My primary use is in layering for November and December bowhunting in North Central Mass (40 to 15 degrees) and so perhaps my critique is going to be irrelevant to others. I find that the short sleeves actually create more bulk than I would have thought and I am not sure that the warmth trade off is worth it. Because I am layering under other items, the muff is of no value so the zipper design becomes an unnecessary obstacle. When I layer it under my Fanatic Lite jacket the 2 layers of collars tend to be a bit tight and a third layer gets to be impossible. I am 5'7" 175 with a reasonable build but maybe it is just me so take this for what it is worth. I find myself opting for my down vest more and more. If I had it to do over again, I would buy the Fanatic vest. Bottom line though is that it does what it says and if the issues above are not a problem for you, this is a fine piece of gear. I would have given 3 stars but at this cost things need to be absolutely satisfactory.
