     A midwest big box sporting goods store - Scheels Sporting Goods - is having a big sale on Sitka Brand clothing.  Looks like some pretty good deals on all clothing.  I am looking at some pants but not sure what kind to get.  Never knew there were some many choices.  Any ideas?  I have never had an Sitka clothing.  If your looking for a particular item you might save some money.  I have seen some of it posted at $50 off.  All sizes seem available.  Just FYI.
     See you guys in Springfield.

Sitka makes some good stuff. Just depends what you are looking for and how you would used it as to which pants are best for you. I've got a pair of the Acsent pants that are great lightweight for early season mountain hunts or any warm weather hunts.  Also a pair of the Mountain pants that are a bit heavier, but still not what I use much for whitetails.  Sitkas stuff seems to be very specific for its intended propose.  Fantastic for what it is designed for, but not as good for some other uses.

Picked up the new Fanatic Jacket on that sale. Perfect for some cold WI. deer hunts.

I have bought quite a few items at Scheels when they are clearing out merchandise. You can usually save 33% or more. Which pants to buy? Depends on what time of year you plan to use them. During warm/mild weather I like the ascent line pants. Add the long johns and I can sit for deer for hours and be comfortable at temps as low as 35 F. Well constructed. Lots of pockets for stuff. Not as quiet as wool, but quiet enough IMO.

Yes Michael, the new Fanatic has been re-worked following suggestions from field testers, and the new design is quite functional for bowhunting in a stationary blind or tree stand. Mike

I  too have the fanatic and I think it is the warmest outfit I own and I do own wool. I must own the new stuff because it very quite the zipper across body takes a little to get to

I jumped on that sale as well and picked up the Fanatic coat. Well designed. I'll have to wait until this Nov. to try it out.
