Waiting Essentials

‘What you need to know’

The “await” or “waiting hunt” is a really wide definition, as that in any hunting modality there is frequently a time of waiting for the desired animal to pass by.

However, in this case we are referring to the Waiting Hunt as a concrete hunting modality in which 100% of the activity is based on waiting for the animal to pass by.

Therefore, this product selection is aimed at all those hunters who spend hours and hours during autumn or winter waiting for a large Wild Boar, Bear or Stag to appear.

To make the choice of products easier. Bowland has only included products that are 100% indicated to comprise a waiting hunt kit.

Other Sitka Gear products with similar characteristics, or a different Optifade, that aren’t included in this collection, could also be suitable for this type of hunt.

Even though we’ve tried to simplify things to the fullest, some garments included in this section perform the same function. That is, they would occupy the same place in

your kit. So you should choose between them. While taking the functionality of both items into account, we have tried to offer you only a single option, the most

recommended. However, in some cases due to their high suitability we have offered two. Although both products would be highly recommendable for this activity, slight

differences in their functions will allow you to choose the one which best fits your needs.

So that you don’t confuse the duplicated garments and the characteristics that can help you choose the one that fits your needs better:

Fanatic Jacket and Bib vs Incinerator Jacket and Bib:

These two articles have a similar level of isolation, are very silent and are really comfortable. Believe us if we tell you that it’s really complicated to choose between

the two. There are two basic differences: while the Incinerator gear includes a Gore-Tex membrane and is completely waterproof, the Fanatic gear uses Gore-Tex

Infinium, which, as you know, is a windstopper but not waterproof (even though it resists moderate rain). The second difference is the noise level; although both are

really silent, the Fanatic gear is slightly more silent than the Incinerator.

In conclusion, the Incinerator set will be the better choice for those zones where rain or snow is frequent; while Fanatic is perfect for Bowhunters or hunters for which stealth is essential.
