Default need sitka advice

Hello guys i am looking to pickup a sitka base layer but need help in deciding which one will keep me warmest. I am hunting in upstate NY from early to late season.
My options are the fanatic hoody, heavy weight zip, merino wool heavy weight zip, heavy weight hoody, traverse hoody. I will be wearing this layer ontop of a merino wool layer not sure yet which one to get, any recommendations are welcomed. On top of the sitka mid layer i will be wearing under armour barrier jacket which has a hood. i wouldn't mind a mid layer with a hood because i can just were double hoods, and in the future i would like to get the fanatic jacket which doesnt have hood.I recently picked up the heavy weight bottom hopefully it will be warm. Also i like the optifade elevated II camo.

As far as layers go, one of my favorite combinations is an Under Armour sweatshirt, with Sitka's Jetstream Jacket over the top.

Sitka is all about layering. Iím in VT and wear the Fanatic Hoody under a Mountain jacket as needed in Oct. As it gets colder I have the Traverse hoody which is heavier. IMO that their Fanatic Jacket is the warmest piece of clothing I have ever worn.

You can pick up the Fanatic Jacket for around $275 these days. Look at Mountain Archery or Camofire for deals.
