The Fanatic Jacket was specifically and scientifically created for whitetail hunters battling mid-to late-season conditions. This jacket is uniquely constructed with a diagonal zipper so a kangaroo pocket could be built into the design to keep your hands warm. Topped off with a WINDSTOPPER® laminate, you have a jacket that will keep you in the stand longer to help increase your odds.
“The Fanatic Jacket addresses a problem that most bowhunters face as the temperatures fall: keeping your hands warm, while still wearing a thin glove. Sitka solved this by using an innovative side zip allowing the addition of a full kangaroo pocket. Great range of motion, all the features I need, but most of all the warmth of Primaloft® keeps me in the stand. Plus, I still get amazing range of motion. The Fanatic is a must-have in the colder months and I use mine all over the midwest."
—Sitka Athlete Jeff Simpson
The Fanatic Jacket is designed for when the wind wraps itself around bare trees, scrapelines appear overnight, and anything still green is dusted in snow. A silent barrier between the stiff November air and your skin, the Jacket’s every detail makes you more stealthy, more comfortable, more focused and more deadly.
We’ve shielded heat-trapping Primaloft® Sport insulation with a soft, silent GORE® WINDSTOPPER® outer fabric that helps eliminate the effects of windchill. The insulation is body mapped, with 133g/m2 Primaloft in the torso, and 60g/m2 in the sleeves to keep you warm while keeping bulk from interfering with your shooting form. 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. The articulated, removable hood is designed to seal in body heat while leaving your peripheral vision intact. Internal wrist gaskets and thumb loops keep your sleeves in place while sealing out drafts. We built in a strategically placed grunt tube slot and rangefinder pocket to give you quick access to your most critical equipment. Intelligent underlayering will keep you deadly and engaged through the end of the season.
Your buck may only make one mistake all year. The Fanatic Jacket gives you every reason to be there when he does.

ELEVATED FOREST We like truths. The longer you are in your stand, the better your chance of success. The Forest system honors this general truth with pieces patterned to fit close to the body—making long, extended sits bearable. Anchored by our core layering system, the Elevated Forest outerwear pieces drive a balance toward R-values and quietness. We've increased loft without adding weight, brushed face fabrics for soundless movement, and eliminated unnecessary features that add noise. The GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Forest pattern factors in the distance and extreme angles of this vertical environment. This is how we define Forest.
