In the redesigning of the 2019 Sitka Gear Cloudburst Jacket, Sitka spared no detail. This is the perfect piece to reach for when the wind is blowing and rain is coming at you sideways. The jacket has been refined in its build to reduce overall weight, and streamlined for all your backcountry pursuits. Micro-taped seams and GORE-TEX 3-layer laminate construction help make the 2019 Sitka Gear Cloudburst Jacket 100% waterproof, and breathable. YKK zippered internal chest pocket provides internal gear storage, and exterior Gore Optifade Concealment YKK zippers are placed on the dual hand pockets, and in the pits to allow you to help regulate heat while on the move. The integrated drop-away hood, adjustable hem, and adjustable cuff helps keep you in the hunt when the action heats up.
With proper layering, the new 2019 Sitka Gear Cloudburst Jacket will take you from the first cold snap to the end of the season.

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 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.
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
Rain gear for the big game hunter must be breathable, durable and lightweight. A lack of any of these qualities can compromise a hunt or worse lead to an emergency. For 2019, Sitka Gear streamlined the construction to reduce overall garment weight and limit failure points. The superiority of a 3-layer GORE-TEX construction delivers the durability, breathability and industry-leading waterproofing that makes Cloudburst a go-to for mountain hunters worldwide.
