NAPA, CA. Sitka Gear, the industry leader in performance hunting gear, introduces the Fanatic Jacket and Bibs featuring the Optifade® Forest concealment pattern. This marquee product offering has been specifically and scientifically designed for the hardcore whitetail hunter.
A key design feature on the Fanatic Jacket is its diagonal zipper design, which allows for a kangaroo pocket for hunters to keep their hands warm and ready for that next shot. This feature also places the zipper on the hunter’s shoulder and not in front of their chin.
The fully articulated arms, knees and seat eliminate the bulkiness and make it very comfortable, perfect for extended sits. In addition, the bibs feature an aggressive knee articulation for superior comfort and performance while on the stand. The Fanatic Jacket also incorporates a grunt tube slot and range finder pocket, making this the ultimate and most versatile jacket for whitetail hunters on the market.

Sitka Gear’s top-quality products feature the most scientifically advanced visual concealment pattern ever to hit the market – GORE® OPTIFADE® Concealment, the first-ever concealment based on the science of animal vision. The unique micro-pattern considers the way a deer or other ungulate perceives color, the ratio of positive to negative space and other visual elements to create an effect that allows the hunter to blend with the animal’s perception of the environment. The macro-pattern breaks up the symmetry of the human body so that if a hunter is detected, the animal will not be able to identify the hunter as a predator.
