Stika Pantanal Parka

Postby Phild » Mon Nov 12, 2012 10:48 pm

Hey all just wondering if anyone is toting around any of the Stika Gear? I have been thinking on a new waterfowl jacket and was thinking about the Stika Pantanal. I think it is their warmest parka but wondering if it would be just too warm in anything other than 0 to - degree Celsius temps? I thought about a two part system but not really wanting to shell out $800

Thanks

Alright then. Anyway the pantanal is their only parka, the other two are considered wading jackets even though they go to the belt line. The Hudson has a sewn in vest that's got primaloft in it. This Is the warmest jacket they make. The parka has more of a grid fleece pattern in it and the delta is just a shell. The fleece in the parka is really not much insulation at all and would go well with a sweatshirt or drake mst jacket something of that nature for anything in the double digits. It also does no have a winblocker in it if I remember correctly. It's really just a preference I hunt from upper Washington down to the valley in sac so I went with the shell for pure versatility. Now I'm not a real big parka fan, and it goes down to around the mid thigh for me, im 6'2 and an xl. If the wading jacket would have come with the fleece backing I probably would have got it.
Also mak sure you try it on, their sizes are interesting to say the least.
Now moving on sitka is very very expensive compared to anything else, but how you spend your money is no concern of mine. I buy sitka because I have had great dealings with them in the past. The customer service that I have received is second to none and I will always be willin to pay more for a quality product that is backed by quality people.

That alone may be the one bit of information that be the deciding factor, I was thinking it was a just below the waist style I am not looking for something that long.

Thank you,

I thought the Hudson jacket sat below the waistline. From the Sitka Hudson jacket ads, it looks like it goes down below the crotch. Or are they modeling the Pantanal jacket? Or is the guy just really short, wearing the Hudson? :lol3:

My bad.. I guess when I read his first sentence "Hey all just wondering if anyone is toting around any of the Stika Gear?" I assumed he was asking about general sitka impressions....

No worries I am glad that I removed the rant I posted LOL, I had a "moment" thanks for all the input guys. I talked to a dealer and the pantanal is a longer parka the benifit of it excluding the length is the insulation it is a flece 130g lined jacket. Meaning that this jacket would be great for and "all season" jacket not too warm for early season and warm enough with a second later for the - temps.

The hudson and delta are wading jackets the delta being just a gortex outershell with no insulation and the Hudson being their full insulated wading jacket meant to be worn with waders but is a heavier insulation. So this would not be a good choice for a jacket that would be worn early season. So unfortunatly Stika does not make the jacket I was looking for. As an alternative I did see tha Baretta makes an Extreme Ducker which is a 2-1 wading jacket with a gortex outer and a second seperate inner base layer that zips in.

That Delta sounds like the winner to me.

I currently wear an uninsulated hardshell jacket and layer whatever I need under it based on the weather. I don't see myself going back to a 3 in 1 or other insulated parka ever again.

Now If I could ever find a blowout sale on a delta jacket I might have to pick one up!

PHild I found the berreta 2 n 1 extreme ducker hunting jacket on e-bay for $299.00 it looks like a lot better deal than the sitka gear. I really like the optifade marsh pattern. I bought the sitka gear marsh windstopper beanie hat for when I am sitting in marsh grass hunting.

I have the delta wading jacket,the duck oven,the pantanal bibs,and traverse top and bottom it's very well rounded gear is it better than everything else prolly not. It does work for me it keeps me warm and dry and that's all I ask for. It's worth a shot and to boot benelli is dipping there super Vinci in optifade marsh

At that price they may not last that long. No cut nothing left on the profit side.
Did you pay the shipping?
