    Default Sitka Must Haves

    Iíve heard enough good reviews that I think Iím going to jump on the train. Whatís the must haves? I want something I can use to duck hunt and deer hunt, so needs to be quiet.

    Most of their duck stuff has a slick face on it so it will shed water so it’s loud, while the deer stuff has a fleece face so it’s quiet.

    Deer: fanatic set. It’s almost a must for cold and windy. It’s warm and has a windproof layer. The stratus set is wind proof but not warm on its own, so you have to layer under a little more.

    Duck: Dakota hoodie and delta wading jacket are both great. I can’t give a review on their waders because my banded set is shockingly holding up well.

    Wrong.

    What I have now is noisy and not that warm. I was planning on buying a new setup anyhow.

    Nice try at being a jerk though.

    The Duck Oven jacket is one of my best purchases.

    It's overkill for South Carolina but the blizzard parka and bibs are the real deal out west. I'm not really an all or nothing type. I like the Kuiu attack pants and hooded down jacket. My preferred base layer is First lite. And I like the sitka jackets. The jetstream jacket is nice here in SC.

    Give Kuiu a look. I have been pleased with everything I have gotten from them.

    Depends on how and where you hunt IMO. Living out west, the gradient pants and hoodie are almost a daily worn item. Especially as a mid-layer during late season hunts. Also been a huge fan of the Hudson bibs and jacket for field/layout hunting. Definitely going to look into a delta wading jacket for myself for those "mild temp" early season hunts out here.

    Grinder Hoody, Fahrenheit jacket, Dakota hoodie. Worn this in some real cold places out west and never felt the need for anything more.

    I like their face things, and then this.. I don't care for their lightweight shirts, they're all itchy feeling. The heavier weight zip up is okay, but I've worn this midweight with the white kinda fluffy inside for several years now. I don't do hoods.

    It's perfect for around here

    Kelvin Lite jacket in brown is my #1 jacket for all hunting. Kelvin jacket is my go too for still hunting and glassing. I wouldn’t consider it a must have, but I use the gaiters a good bit hunting. I bounce back and forth between the merino bottoms and heavy weight bottoms, I use First Lite for my top base layer.

    I have about 10+ other items, but those are usually being used the most.

    Itís a rabbit hole. If you deer hunting more than duck hunt, start with a fanatic hoodie, a stratus jacket and stratus bibs.

    Go to duck hunting pieces are gradient pants and hoodie. The DO jacket is a must have also. Get a delta wading jacket to go over it and youíre set for pretty much everything. Maybe add some Hudson bibs if you field/layout hunt.
