Anyone have any suggestions for a great jacket for the tree stand? I want something with a lot of pockets (min 4). I would want to be comfortable in 25-50 degree weather and would want wind stopper. Know of any?

From: greg simon
If it’s in your budget Sitka makes some good ones. If I could only have one it would be the Sitka Stratus jacket.

+1 on the Sitka Stratus!

They just never seem to have enough pockets

From: DanaC
Carry a day pack. Pockets, beyond hand warmers, are a pain.

From: Russell
Suggest looking at Day One Camo. For the temps you're talking about, you need layers more than just the jacket.

I have the jacket and vest in ASAT fleece with wind stopper. The jacket has five pockets and you can add a back pouch.

Ill second Day One Camo. Have two of there products , very well made and good for my stand sits.

Sitka stratus. I just want pockets for the things I need in a flash on a hunt. Rangefinder if you use one, and my finger tab basically. Other basics go into my pants pockets where they’re not as “in the way” For everything else, there’s a fanny pack. I typically have a pack because I hang and hunt.

Round here, I’m in my fanatic though from late oct until the end of the season

Sitka fanatic is a warm functional jacket for a tree stand. I use it all fall once temps drop below 50 and layer under it to below zero.

Sitka not have enough pockets!?

Never heard that complaint before about Sitka. Great design and layout

Fleece, wind liner Day One Pull over.

I actually use a Columbia down coat with a windstopper fleece over top. Good, solid base layer underneath everything.

I can see it now, the all new, all in one tree stand Jacket with built in day pack from sitka. If you have to ask how much such a vital piece of gear costs, then you can't afford it. A truly revolutionary piece, preorder yours today by going online and filling out the credit app to see if you qualify.

From: Scoot
I used to laugh at how much people spent on a fanatic. After talking to someone who had it and loved it and gave me all the reasons why, I bought one at a "good price". It's now my favorite piece of deer hunting gear I own.

From: Michael
The only thing that goes into my jacket pocket is a rangefinder. I can’t stand stuff in them when trying to shoot my bow.

With that said I have a stratus and a fanatic as well as the Celsius. The stratus with a Celsius under it has worked pretty dang good with temps down to the mid 20’s.

Pockets is where I find a lot of stuff I lost the year before.

From: Keith
With Sitka, you don't need pockets, as you won't have anything to put in them.
