Stress no more, this Sitka Gear Open Country gift guide will go over eight different products, ranging in price, that will be perfect for any hunter. If you are looking for a gift for a Waterfowl Hunter or different brand, refer to the other gift guides on our site.
Stormfront Jacket - $599
The first and most essential product I will discuss is the Sitka Gear Stormfront Jacket. This jacket is a beast when it comes to enduring the elements. The designers at Sitka Gear used the most durable and abrasion-resistant GORE-TEX 3-layer Pro Shell laminate to create this ideal rain gear for extended hunts in a wide range of conditions. This jacket sports a wide variety of unique features, such as articulated elbows, perfectly cut for layering, soft rubber material at the cuffs can be cinched tight to keep water from "creeping" up the arms. The 2019 Sitka Gear Stormfront Jacket is a great item for any hunter to have in their daypack for a short outing or extended stays in the rain.
Stormfront Pants - $549
The next product I will go over to accompany the Stormfront Jacket is the Stormfront Pant. This pair of pants also utilizes the most durable and abrasion-resistant GORE-TEX 3-layer Pro Shell laminate, with enhanced durability and abrasion-resistant overlays on the knees. With this innovative design, you can bet that this pair of pants will stand up to the test of time. If you are looking to get an excellent gift for a hunter this season, the Stormfront Pants is the way to go.
Next on the list, the Sitka Gear Core Lightweight Balaclava is an essential piece of gear in every hunter's backpack. This lightweight layer is the solution to keeping cool and protected from the sun in the early season. Priced at $30, this is the perfect stocking stuffer for any hunter.
Stormfront GTX Gatier - $149
The Stormfront GTX Gaiter is the next item on our Open Country Gift Guide. Hunting often requires the hunter to hike through dense areas of thickets, and this often leads to the bottom part of their pants to get holes in them. In order to protect the integrity of the gear, slipping on a pair of gaiters is essential. The lower third of the Stormfront GTX Gaiters is built with a rugged CORDURA® nylon for boot protection and a reinforced scuff guard for added abrasion resistance against scree and scrub. The full Hypalon lower is built to provide a bombproof piece of gear that stands up to extreme wear and tear. Priced at $149, this piece of equipment is entirely worth the money. The Stormfront Gaiters will provide the wearer peace of mind when walking through rough terrain, making this a perfect gift for any hunter this holiday season.
Stormfront GTX Glove - $199
To complete the Stormfront series, the Stormfront GTX Glove must be included. This glove has been redesigned for 2019 with changes like reduced bulk, increased breathability, maximized dexterity. The 2019 design helps while sitting in a stand for an early season hunt, or glassing through November. The removable compression-resistant fleece liner and a short gauntlet allow for placement under a rain jacket during a small squall or torrential downpour. This is the perfect stocking stuffer item for any hunter this holiday season.
Jetstream Jacket - $329
If a waterproof jacket as a gift is what you have in mind for this holiday season, look no further than the Jetstream Jacket. This jacket was designed to withstand extreme rain conditions and pairs perfectly with any base layer system. The articulated design provides an athletic fit, that won't bunch up under a pack or take up unnecessary space inside of one. The DWR finish resists light precipitation and prevents the face fabric from wetting out, providing a water resistance that rivals most non-Sitka Gear waterproof jackets do not have. This jacket is the perfect gift for any hunter this holiday season.
Timberline Pants - $229
The Sitka Gear Timberline Pant is one of the most versatile pairs of pants on the market. Whether they are an avid trapper, predator hunter, and elk or deer hunter, the Sitka Gear Timberline Pant is designed for them. The 4-way stretch polyester spandex with Nylon Ripstop knees and seat provides protection and comfort no matter the terrain or weather. The Sitka Timberline Pants comes with removable knee pads that you will consider a bonus when field dressing a buck on rocky/rough terrain. These incredible features make this pair of pants one of the best holiday gifts you can buy someone who hunts.
Sitka Trucker Cap - $30
For anyone who utilizes Sitka Gear, a SITKA Trucker Cap is the perfect way to rep the love for their favorite hunting gear brand. Hunting is not about the act; it's about the lifestyle that accompanies it.
