With the onslaught of new product launches about to begin along with the arrival of “show season”, I figured I’d share an early preview of a few items to come for whitetail hunters from my hunting gear company of choice, Sitka!  In particular I wanted to share two specific products I’m really excited about, these being the new Scrambler series of youth clothing and the Fanatic vest. I’m thrilled to see high quality gear specifically designed for young hunters finally, and if you’ve seen any of my thoughts on the Fanatic Jacket, you’ll understand why I’m excited for the vest. Below I’ve included a few details from the product press releases, but look for much more detailed information and first hand impressions in the coming days as I’ll be sure to get the full scoop at the ATA show this week!

“NAPA, CA. Sitka Gear, the industry leader in performance hunting gear, is proud to unveil the Scrambler series jacket and pant, a premium performance set designed specifically for your favorite young hunter.  The Scrambler series is a testament of Sitka’s overall passion and commitment for the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts.

 The Scrambler jacket’s light insulation will ward off the tykes chill in early mornings and late evenings, yet provide maximum breathability throughout the day. With articulated elbows, a micro-fleece lining, and a functional chest pocket, there’s nothing Sitka left to chance for youngsters.

 The Scrambler pant features micro-fleece to wick away moisture and keep nippy temperatures at bay. The articulated soft shell pants are made to be worn with or without layers underneath. Reinforced seat and knees along with a 2-way stretch seam make the Scrambler a very solid built clothing system that caters to the up and coming outdoorsmen.”

“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 NEW Fanatic Vest takes the versatility of the Fanatic series to the next level.  As the temperatures rise and the Fanatic Jacket layer is removed, the Vest allows for the hunter to still have all of the unique features that they are familiar with on the Fanatic Jacket.  By being able to remain comfortable in the conditions at hand, yet having the high end features the Fanatic series keeps the hunter in the tree longer, increasing their chances of success.”
