When you are out snowmobiling, looking for that perfect glassing spot, grab the Sitka Gear Blizzard Parka for your extreme cold, low activity gear. This articulated parka is insulated throughout with water-repellent hybrid insulation of 60% 650-fill power white duck down and 40% ultrafine Primaloft fibers. The Sitka Gear Blizzard Parka is designed to fit close to your body and is encased in a 3-layer GORE-TEX membrane to up your waterproof insulation game. The reinforced tail provides exceptional protection against wind and wet while in the saddle, or sitting on the cold, wet, hard ground glassing. The cuffs can be tightened down to block out the rain, and keep the heat in. The thumbholes enable you to keep your jacket aligned with your gloves. The Sitka Gear Blizzard Parka has a drop-away hood that is cut to allow you clear peripheral vision and hangs comfortably down your back without pulling at the jacket's collar.

Sitka Gear uses premium YKK Zippers across their product line for their reliability, durability, weather resistance, and quiet operation. They also print many of their zippers with GORE OPTIFADE Concealment for added stealth.
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.
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.
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
In the past, the best way to combat long exposure to extreme cold-weather conditions was to stack layer upon layer, leaving the hunter with a system that was not purpose-built for active pursuits in that environment. Sitka's approach was to combine a water-repellent hybrid insulation with a fully waterproof yet breathable GORE-TEX layer of protection, creating a system that's equipped to confront the world's most extreme conditions.
