The Sitka Gear Stratus Vest will become your whitetail go-to vest from early whitetail season through mid-season November. The Sitka Gear Stratus Vest is 100% windproof due to the nestling of Sitka Gear's GORE WINDSTOPPER membrane between a wet-printed Mfleece shell and a micrfleece backer. The zippered hand pockets of the Sitka Gear Stratus Vest will keep your digits toasty warm, and a conveniently placed chest pocket will keep your necessities handy. The Sitka Gear Stratus Vest's safety harness pass-through port enables you to wear your stand harness closer to your body, and easily done and doff layers as the temperature dictates. The DWR finish of the Sitka Gear Stratus Vest repels light precipitation while protecting the fabric face from wetting out.
Pair the versatile Sitka Gear Stratus Vest with the Sitka Gear Stratus Pant, the Sitka Gear Stratus Bib, the Sitka Gear Stratus Jacket, the Sitka Gear Stratus WS Glove, and the Sitka Gear Stratus WS Beanie, to complete the ultimate Whitetail system.

GORE-TEX INFINIUM with WINDSTOPPER TECHNOLOGY
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.
The Stratus Vest is lightweight and extremely versatile, functioning as a wind barrier, an insulator, a core-warming mid-layer, and a dry-day outer layer. The only time the Stratus Vest will leave your pack is when it's on you.
We've sandwiched a GORE WINDSTOPPER membrane between an ultra-quiet, hydrophobic outerfleece, and an insulating micro-grfleece liner to completely seal out the wind. Both layefleece work to insulate and separate your skin from the cool fall air. Zippered hand pockets keep your fingers toasty, and a single chest pocket keeps the necessities within reach. A safety harness pass-through port keeps your connection point comfortably in place.
SITKA DESIGN NOTES
Whitetail hunters need the absolute best protection from the chill of long sits in mid-season. Sitka Gear designed the Stratus with GORE WINDSTOPPER to create a fully-featured, 100% windproof vest that was optimized for these exact conditions. A DWR finish sheds off light precipitation, and Sitka Gear utilized micro-grfleece for its warmth-to-weight ratio. Zippered hand pockets keep essentials close and digits warm and dexterous. The addition of the safety harness pass-through port allows for easy layering with any safety harness system.
