Fanatic Lite Bib
Breathable enough for the afternoon heat, with just enough warmth for the sunrise snap, the new Fanatic Lite Bib specializes in all-day, early-season sits. The ultra-quiet hexagonal grid fleece construction purges excess heat, while full 2-way side zips allow additional venting and make for easy on-and-off. The Quantum adjustable suspenders maintain the correct elevation without the buckles that cause hotspots under your harness.
- High Gauge Polyester Knit with Micro Fleece Hexagonal Grid Backer
- Quantum Adjustable Suspenders
- Gator Lockdown Eyelets
- Adjustable Waist
- Hand Muff Pockets
- DWR Finish
The Fanatic Lite Bib gives you the edge on the early season. At its core, you’ll find a quiet hex grid fleece that maintains heat and dumps moisture to keep you comfortable, and the polyester face is treated with a DWR finish to shed light precip. Quantum adjustable suspenders won’t create chafe points, and an internal Velcro adjustment at the waist offers a customizable fit.
Full side zips make for easy on and off, allowing you to dump heat on the walk to your stand, and the low-bulk hem can be worn inside or outside of rubber boots. Articulated knees keep from bunching in the seated position, zippered thigh pockets keep small items secure, and the kangaroo pocket can double as a hand warmer or an arm rest. A zippered pocket on top keeps electronics or calls within easy reach.

These are the perfect bib for early season whitetail hunts in the northeastern US. The insulation is flexible enough to let you tolerate an 80 degree day, but you could easily stomach a morning / evening in the stand all the way down to the 40's with the right base layer. If I could add one thing it would be larger external cargo pockets for goodies, but most will be just fine with the zip-up thigh pockets. I'm 5'8" 170 lbs and the Large is perfect.

The perfect bibs for the central Texas hunter. I've worn these comfortably from mid 80 degree temps down into the teens with a base layer. Equipped with many accessible pockets in all the right places. The leg vents have served me well from cooling down after hiking in, scouting ground, and shed hunting too.

These bibs are wonderful, as are all Sitka garments.Beautifully designed and made, well thought-out as far as the needs of the hunter. Elevated II is a particularly good pattern for treestands and the fabric is also versatile. Big comfort range especially with layering. I also have the heavier weight Fanatic bibs and they are the warmest bibs I have ever found, bar none. Worth every penny. PS buy one size up, Sitka Gear is made for 20-something lean athletic types!

I check the wind speed and weather before deciding what to wear each hunt. On the days the wind will be 10mph or less, but still cool, I wear these bibs and my Fanatic Lite jacket. Cool but faster wind, out come the Stratus pants and Jacket. The Fanatic Lites are great when it is too cool to wear the Equinox set, but not cold enough to need my Fanatics. A long day in the 30s in these is possible for me with just a merino wool base layer under the bibs and either a Fanatic vest on top of the Fanatic Lite jacket, or a Stratus vest under the Fanatic Lite jacket.

Great bibs. Nearly perfect. Two features that are sadly lacking on these that is present on the Fanatic bibs - 1) the bowholder pocket on the ankle and 2) Windstopper fabric. I prefer a bib over pants, so didn't opt for the Stratus pants. With the right baselayers, it works well.
