Re: Sitka Gear Clothing
I have a fair amount of Sitka gear....we can chat on Saturday when I get the pup.
Short version- I think the Incinerator line is going to be much too warm for the majority of hunting season in PA. I have the Fanatic jacket and bibs, and with layers, that is some WARM stuff. I wouldn't want the Incinerator line, as the only time I'd use it would be maybe in very late January for the tail end of the extended flintlock season here in 5C.
I wish they'd put GoreTex into the Fanatic series. I think that'd be PERFECT.
With a good layering system, and the Kelvin top/bottom, I don't foresee any temps I'll face in PA that I can't manage with the Fanatic system, but it's only got a DWR finish, it's not fully waterproof. It'll handle snow, light/spotty rain, but a steady rain, probably not.
Another thing to know about Sitka is to buy up at least one size from your usual size in clothing. Maybe two.
I wear L/XL tshirts. I bought a 3X Fanatic jacket, and I thought I'd swim in it. I sort of do, until I put on any kind of layers. Then it starts to fit pretty well. I probably should have a 2x, but I got it cheap, lol.
