GORE-TEX INFINIUM WINDSTOPPER products offer complete windproof protection through a durable, lightweight, water-resistant and breathable membrane, to prevent wind from robbing heat from your core. GORE-TEX INFINIUM WINDSTOPPER products are available in a range of options from lightweight shells to garments with different levels of abrasion resistance, thermal comfort, stretch, and next-to-skin comfort.
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.
Built with the GORE WINDSTOPPER membrane, the Stratus Jacket is the ideal outer layer for blustery early autumn sits, and since it's cut for under layering with insulation pieces like the Celsius Series, it remains the go-to softshell for most regions well into November.
The 100% windproof GORE WINDSTOPPER membrane is encased between an ultra-quiet wet-printedfleece face fabric and an insulating micrfleece backer. The articulated patterning gives you a comfortable fit for the seated position and frees you up for a complete range of motion. Flip-up the hood in bitter winds, or remove it completely for warmer days in the early season. Keep your fingers toasty in zippered hand pockets, and keep all your necessities readily accessible in the dual zippered chest pockets. Tie in comfortably with using the safety harness pass-through port.
SITKA DESIGN NOTES
Hunters need the absolute best protection from the chill of long sits during the rut. Sitka Gear designed the Stratus with GORE WINDSTOPPER to create a fully-featured, 100% windproof jacket that was optimized for these exact conditions. Sitka Gear utilized micro-grfleece for its warmth-to-weight ratio and breathability. The addition of a removable hood and safety harness pass-through port allows for donning or doffing a layer when the conditions change.
