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 their reliability, durability, weather resistance, and quiet operation. They also print many of their zippers with GORE OPTIFADE Concealment for added stealth.
SITKA DESIGN NOTES
Sitka Gear saw the need for a late-season bib that could withstand cold days sitting in the stand while providing the most advanced visual and auditory concealment. Sitka's approach was to design a bib that would protect you from not just the cold but the wind, while minimizing the noise created from layers of gear. Working with animal scientists and ungulate specialists and using controlled laboratory tests, Sitka Gear developed the warmest, quietest bib on the planet by utilizing a GORE-TEX INFINIUM with WINDSTOPPER barrier sandwiched between Berbfleece face fabric and Primaloft SIlver insulation. This updated fabric package is half the audible engagement distance as compared to Sitka's previous Fanatic line. Additionally, Sitka Gear incorporated compression-resistant insulation in the seat to create a shield from vital heat loss.
