Our quietest windproof top, we built the new Fanatic Vest to warm your core when deer spook at the mere rumor of noise.

The Fanatic Vest is a windproof, insulated buffer between your core and the stiff November air. Every detail is designed to make you more stealthy, more comfortable, more focused and more deadly when scrapelines appear overnight, and the buck that’s been haunting your dreams starts to make his move.
The Fanatic Vest is ideal for milder days, or milder climates, when you don’t need the full protection of the Fanatic Jacket. It can also be used as an insulation piece with the Incinerator Series to keep you out there in the most brutal conditions, while minimizing bulk in the arms. We’ve body mapped heat-trapping 60g/m2 and 133 g/m2 Primaloft® insulation throughout with a soft, silent GORE® WINDSTOPPER® outer fabric, helping eliminate the effects of windchill. The angled zipper design makes room for a kangaroo pocket that heats your hands and saves your dexterity for the moment you need it most. We built in a strategically placed rangefinder pocket to give you quick access to your most critical equipment.

This is the best Whitetail piece that Sitka has made. It is the best of both worlds. I have worn this vest from Windy Texas mid-season hunts all the way through the bitter northern's when temp drop into the 20's. Keeps wind off your core and seals in body heat. This piece allows you to throw it on over any piece and have your hand pockets, which are the best part about the vest. And not have the bulk over sleeves while you're drawing a bow. As a bow hunter I don't like wearing a glove on my shooting hand, the hand muff allows you to keep your shooting hand glove free and super warm! Worth the money and don't have to wear access bulk that the typical big winter jackets have.

This vest has become one of my favorite pieces of gear. The temperature was 35 and the wind was blowing at 22 mph with gusts over 30, putting the windchill well into the teens. I put the Fanatic Vest on under my Stratus jacket and sat all day long, I never left the stand. The Fanatic Vest does exactly as advertised; warms your core!

I have pretty much every Whitetail piece of gear that Sitka makes and this is by far my favorite. It is a must for bow hunters. I hunt the midwest and this piece when paired with good base layers will get you all the way into the late season without the need for a cumbersome jacket.

Absolutely my favorite piece of gear in my aresnal. Ifthe temps are really cold and frigid I can layer with this and my stratus jacket. While still having the kangaroo pouch and all of the killer pockets. Even layered, I am still very mobile and ready to draw my bow. The zipper design was engineered by a pure genius as far as I am concerned. Any serious whitetail hunter needs this piece in his bag of tricks! - Brandon, Monsters Inc. BBSK - WV

This vest was a game changer for me. I wear it as my outer layer in any temperature under 50* for my stationary deer sits throughout the Midwest Whitetail season. The kangaroo pocket allows me to wear thin gloves and when the temp dips below freezing, I just put a couple of handwarmers in there. In ultra cold sits in and below the single digits, I wear and swear by 2 baselayers, Stratus Bibs, a thin base up top, Traverse, Kelvin Jacket, Stratus Jacket, with this vest on top. It is quiet, warm, and best of all, the kangaroo pocket keeps my hands warm and ready for my bow. Thank you Sitka. Your system has changed the way that I hunt.
