Standard Fit, designed to accommodate layering for more versatility from early to late season climates.
Designed for stalking and ambushing ungulates from ground level in tree-covered and vegetated terrain. Subalpine is optimized for engagement ranges of 50 yards and less.
Environment: Vegetated Terrain
Scenario: Ground Ambush, Spot & Stalk
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.
Environment: Open Terrain
Scenario: Spot & Stalk
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.
PrimaLoft Silver Hi-Loft Ultra: Unique construction provides next-level compression resistance for resilient loft and reliably exceptional warmth, even in wet conditions.
Stika Gear uses Polartec fabrics in specific applications requiring insulation that maximizes lightweight breathability and weather resistance. Polartec Alpha active insulation features an extremely breathable, fast drying and highly compressible synthetic fabric that regulates core body temperatures during both dynamic and static activities, reducing the need to shed or add layers throughout a hunt.
Polygiene Odor Control Technology is a natural fit for hunting. By permanently treating fabrics with low concentrations of silver salt, which has inherent antimicrobial properties and is naturally present in water, Polygiene safely eliminates the ability for bacteria to grow and effectively neutralizes odor.
By weaving spandex into their fabrics, Sitka Gear is able to create advanced synthetic blends that stretch in all four directions to allow unhindered mobility while maintaining the lightweight durability and moisture management of synthetic fabrics.
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.
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
Sitka Gear realized that traditional down garments had certain drawbacks; while warm and packable, they're easily compromised by moisture and compression. Sitka's goal was to deliver versatile synthetic insulation that will keep you warm while withstanding the rigors of mountain environments, all in a lightweight, compressible package that doesn't sacrifice movement or breathability.
