At a mere 12.7oz. in a Medium, the Dewpoint is our lightest and most packable rain jacket. It is built uncompromisingly for ounce-counting backcountry hunters who rely on their rain gear to keep them safe in icy mountain rains far from the road. We worked with the scientists at W.L. Gore to develop a new three-layer, extremely light GORE-TEX Fabric with one of the highest abrasion resistance ratings in our rain gear line. Built with micro taped and laser cut seams, it is 100% waterproof and highly breathable for moving fast in inclement weather. The innovative face fabric, a 20 Denier stretch woven nylon mini ripstop, bestows a stretchability that was previously impossible in waterproof garments.
By design, we kept features to a minimum. All zippers are welded and watertight. The full front zipper makes for easy on and off as conditions change. Deep pit zips mesh seamlessly with the hand pocket zippers. This eliminates the redundancy of separate zippers and cuts down even further on weight and bulk. An articulated, four-panel hood fits snugly around your head and moves with you as you turn, maximizing visibility. The zippered hand pockets and chest pocket cache your minimal necessities. The Dewpoint Jacket packs down and stuffs into its own chest pocket, conserving precious pack volume.

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.
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 Gear uses premium YKK Zippers across their product line for reliability, durability, weather resistance, and quiet operation. They also print many of their zippers with GORE OPTIFADE Concealment for added stealth.
