Sitka Blizzard GTX Mitten was designed for the hunter that feels snow is no obstacle when there are big game to be found. These gloves are perfect for when the snow is blowing sideways while glassing. Engineered with a three-layer waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX Shell to keep your hands dry in the snowiest of conditions. Removable PrimaLoft liners provide vital help when the temperatures plummet, and the Pittard's Oiltac leather palms provide a superior grip that doesn't absorb water during freeze-thaw cycles. The articulated design allows for maximum dexterity. With the secure Velcro connection, you can wear the liner and shell independently or together to add versatility to your big game pursuits.

Expedition Fit, designed for maximum layering in the worst conditions.
Designed for stalking and ambushing ungulates from ground level in tree-covered and vegetated terrain. Subalpine is optimized for engagement ranges of 50 yards and less.
OPTIFADE OPEN COUNTRY
Scientifically optimized for engagement ranges of 40 yards and beyond at ground level in rocky terrain above the timberline. The Open Country pattern uses the larger neutral areas of the pattern (macro pattern) that are more critical to concealment at greater engagement ranges.
Provides unrivaled waterproof protection that is both durable and lightweight. The microscopic pores of a GORE-TEX membrane are 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, making GORE-TEX garments impenetrable to water from the outside. Those same pores are 700 times larger than a water vapor molecule, which means they allow sweat vapor to escape to the surface of the shell to keep you dry from the inside out. 100% Waterproof & Windproof.
Sitka utilizes a wide range of PrimaLoft insulation technology based on the intended end use of each garment. Through specialized applications and by body-mapping PrimaLoft, they fully leverage the benefits of each technology and optimize the end performance of their insulation layers.
PrimaLoft Gold: The benchmark in synthetic insulation features a lightweight and breathable hydrophobic insulation that maintains loft even when wet
GORE OPTIFADE CONCEALMENT
Traditional mimicry patterns based on human vision are designed to look like a specific type of vegetation or terrain. GORE OPTIFADE Concealment is the only scientifically proven concealment pattern based on animal vision to optically fade a hunter into their surroundings. By using advanced blends of micro and macro patterns to fool animal vision rather than mimic a particular shape, GORE OPTIFADE Concealment is more versatile and more effective at getting hunters close to game.
SITKA DESIGN NOTES
Traditional waterproof handwear separates the fingers in a glove construction, often leading to cold, stiff and non-responsive hands. Sitka's strategy was to design a mitten that delivered insulated warmth with a 100% waterproof shell for static scenarios such as glassing. Sitka Gear combined the waterproof prowess of GORE-TEX 3-layer laminate construction with the insulating power of PrimaLoft to provide ultimate hand warmth. The shell and liner can also be worn independent of each other to adapt to the fluid conditions of big game pursuits in late-season conditions.
