    How to Take
    Your Measurements


      Bend your elbow and put your hand on your hip. Measure from the center of the back of your neck, along the shoulder and down the elbow to the wrist bone.

    • 2. CHEST SIZE

      Wrap the tape measure under armpits, around the fullest part of your chest. The tape measure should be snug, not so tight that it constricts breathing, yet not so loose that the tape measure slides down. Don’t puff out your chest. Stand relaxed while measuring.

    • 3. WAIST SIZE

      Measure your natural waist, which is the narrowest part of your abdomen, between your ribcage and hips. Stand relaxed while measuring.

    • 4. HIP

      For hip circumference, measure around your fullest point, approximately 8” below your natural waist.

    • 5. INSEAM

      In a standing position, measure from your crotch to where you want your pants to end, breaking at the top of the shoe in the front and just above the heel in the back.

    • 6. GLOVES

      With hand partially closed, measure over the knuckles and around the hand, excluding the thumb.

    • If Waist and Hip measurements do not match up on the chart, choose a size that is between the two to find the best fit.

      Ex 1: If your waist measures 28” and your hip measures 40”, typically the best fit would be a size 29.

      Ex 2: If your waist measures 27.5”, and your hips measure 38”, typically the best fit would be a size 28.

    Nice jacket. Using for early season whitetail. Warm enough for temps just higher than freezing. Just wish it was quieter!

    My husband and I both bought this jacket of course he bought the men's version. As soon as we received it we packed it into our hunting location and once we cooled down from our hike we put the Kelvin jacket on. This jacket was incredibly warm! Before I bought this jacket I was layering up to 5-6 different shirts, vests and hoodies to try and keep warm in Alberta's colder hunting weather. This jacket has replaced 3 of my layers making me much more comfortable glassing and sitting. Because my hands always seem to get cold the pockets were one of the first things I noticed, I stuffed my hands into the pockets with a light glove and my hands stayed toasty for hours. My husband even said the same thing, he loved how warm the pockets were. As for the other comments about the hood. I really did not have an issue with my hood, I like it's smaller fit, I can see out of the sides of the hood with out having to turn my head and if I do turn my head the hood doesn't get in the way. I honestly cannot say enough great things about this jacket! LOVE IT. Now I just need Sitka to make a pant that is packable and warm to match this jacket as the pants listed for women are either too bulky or not warm at all for our COLD weather hunts here in Alberta.

    Worn this out for 14+ days so far and it has quickly become my favorite piece in my kit. I agree with others that the hood is oddly small (and I have a pretty small head!). Everything else about this jacket is spot on, from how the waist hits my hip line and pads my pack belt, to the pocket placement being perfect for me to slip my hands in there even while wearing a bino harness. True to size and works for layering just fine. On really cold mornings, I could fit my Jetstream jacket underneath it.

    I really want to keep This jacket. I just ordered it and was really looking forward to it. I really like the way it fits. However, the hood is so short. It is not usable. It isn’t only short when you pull it on. (I don’t have a big head) it actually pulls on the jacket up from my shoulders when you have it on. Strange fit. So if I keep this the hood won’t be usable? For reference I ordered Medium and I’m 5’5” #130.
    I also wish Sitka would make a warmer version like the Men’s WP kelvin Down hoody.
    I’m still debating as really like the use of a hood. Loving all the other women’s line pieces. With a few tweaks this one would be perfect too.

    Jacket is warm and fits well, BUT the hood sucks. Must be made for women with small heads because it’s not tall enough or deep enough for me. Wore it on a caribou hunt and strained my neck while sitting and glassing because it was too small and pulled at the jacket and my head. I have a lightweight hoody and that fits fine but very disappointed in the hood on this jacket. Otherwise would probably give five stars

    This is my all time favorite coat! I love it for guiding hunters in the fall and winter. Perfect for those chilly fall elk bugling mornings or a cold mid afternoon winter day with a mountain lion in tree! I don’t go anywhere without this one!

    I own every piece of the women's big game line and this specific piece is my favorite! I used it almost all fall and winter and it kept me warm in every situation. It is super comfortable and fits like it was custom made for me! Works great with other layers and rain gear and is made with high quality material. I can't recommend this piece enough.

    This jacket doesn’t fit me. I’m 5’10” and 137 pounds and the sleeves are way to small. Make something tall women can wear

    I would give this jacket 5 stars if I could. We bird hunted in sub-zero conditions for 3 days and I was always warm and comfortable. I love this jacket. It fits great and is perfect for layering.

    I’ve been using this on an elk hunt in Montana during cold snowy weather. Really like the warmth when stopping and the breathabikity when trekking.
    I gave this a three star because of the hood.... it is simply too short. Not by much but enough to make it not super functional, uncomfortable, and unusable with a hat. I’ll be sewing in an extra strip about 1.5-2” when i get home to make it work in the future.

    After receiving, i reached out to customer service in regards to he hood being too short. I asked if they had other critique from women about the hood. They did not respond to my question but did offer to return the product. If i were going to add anything besides the hood fix to this jacket it would be either an interior right hand zipper pocket or a front chest pocket side entry for an iphone. I use it to take photos and it would be great to have quick access and warm safe storage.
