The new 2019 Sitka Gear Fanatic Hoody has taken a traditional hoody and supercharged it. Sitka Gear's patented Permanent Polygiene Odor Control Technology helps to keep your scent to a minimum when wearing the 2019 Sitka Gear Fanatic Hoody during long extended scouting and hunting trips. The 2019 Sitka Gear Fanatic Hoody's heavyweight comfort stretfleece moves with you, and the channeled construction provides additional moisture management and breathability. The built-in face mask is designed for easy deployment when needed and tucks out of the way when not in use. The 2019 Sitka Gear Fanatic Hoody has a drop tail design which helps keeps the weather from crawling up your back while glassing or sitting in a blind. The low-profile hood of the 2019 Sitka Gear Fanatic Hoody has been cut for maximal peripheral vision, and the flip-over hand mitts add to the versatility of this hoody. The 2019 Sitka Gear Fanatic Hoody is athletically cut to keep your bowstrings clear and eliminate bulk when used as a mid-layer.
To complete your new and improved 2019 Sitka Gear Whitetail Fanatic system pair the 2019 Sitka Gear Fanatic Hoody with the 2019 Sitka Gear Fanatic Bib, 2019 Sitka Gear Fanatic Jacket (lefty), 2019 Sitka Gear Fanatic Vest, and the 2019 Sitka Gear Fanatic Pack.

Polygiene Odor Control Technology is a natural fit for hunting. By permanently treating fabrics with low concentrations of silver salt, which has inherent antimicrobial properties and is naturally present in water, Polygiene safely eliminates the ability for bacteria to grow and effectively neutralizes odor.
Sitka Gear uses premium YKK Zippers across their product line for their reliability, durability, weather resistance, and quiet operation. They also print many of their zippers with GORE OPTIFADE Concealment for added stealth.
GORE OPTIFADE CONCEALMENT
Traditional mimicry patterns based on human vision are designed to look like a specific type of vegetation or terrain. GORE OPTIFADE Concealment is the only scientifically proven concealment pattern based on animal vision to optically fade a hunter into their surroundings. By using advanced blends of micro and macro patterns to fool animal vision rather than mimic a particular shape, GORE OPTIFADE Concealment is more versatile and more effective at getting hunters close to game.
SITKA DESIGN NOTES
Whitetail hunters need quiet, durable and odor-resistant protection. Traditional outerwear isn't as silent as advertised and lacks technical and intuitive hunting features. Sitka's approach was to build a mid-layfleece insulation piece that could be versatile enough to be worn as outerwear in the early season or layered into a system for all seasons. Sitka Gear used Polygiene Odor Control Technology to minimize scent. A half-zip construction allows for quickly dumping heat and room for the built-in hand muff, and integrated flip-over hand mitts keep fingers warm and agile for the moment of truth.
