Without a doubt, one of my favorite innovations released at the ATA show was the new Fanatic jacket/bib combo from Sitka Gear. I’m honestly not saying that because I use Sitka, rather this is just one of the most innovative and fine tuned pieces of clothing I have ever seen for whitetail hunting. With an included kangaroo hand warming pocket, Primaloft insulation, Gore Windstopper shell and special pockets for grunt tube and range finder, this truly looks to be a whitetail hunters dream gear. If I somehow manage to get ahold of the Fanatic, I’ll certainly put it through the rigors of the hardcore whitetail hunter and see how it holds up but preliminarily, this looks like a gem. In addition to the Fanatic, Sitka has released several other great new products for whitetail hunters in 2011 and this is sure to be a big year for the company as their new whitetail hunting line continues it’s explosive growth from 2010. For a video preview of all the new Sitka whitetail hunting products coming out for 2011, check out this quick clip from David Brinker of Sitka Gear!
