The new updated 2019 Sitka Gear Cloudburst Pant has been maximized for the comfort of ease for all dedicated big game hunters. The new proprietary textiles help minimize weight, while enhancing weather protection and breathability. The streamlined design helps the pants during stalking and ambushing prey. The micro-taped seams and GORE-TEX 3-layer laminate creates an 100% waterproof and breathable layer while dealing with all the wet weather mother nature can throw at you.
The many zippers on the Cloudburst Pant are welded and watertight. Full-length YKK Aqua-Guard leg zips allow for easy layering.

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 those 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. YKK Aqua-Guard zippers in the legs instantly dump heat and make layering effortless. The superiority of 3-layer GORE-TEX construction delivers the durability, breathability and industry-leading waterproofing that makes Cloudburst a go-to for mountain hunters worldwide.
