Sitka Gear used innovative design, advanced fabrics and cutting-edge technology in the design of the new 2019 Sitka Gear Traverse Pant. This is a great technical, ultralight, entry level hunting pant. These pants are constructed to take you from early season to late rifle, with additional layers. The 4-way stretch polyester gives you maximum mobility while covering miles of mountain terrain with minimal resistance. The DWR coating repels light precipitation when hiking through the dewy mountain sides.
Sitka's Traverse Pant has double reinforced knife anchor points on each hand pocket. The meshed backed cargo pockets, perfect for storing small gear, are sealed with YKK Gore Optifade printed zippers. Internal mesh pockets help with ventilation during the warmer parts of the year.

Performance Fit, designed for minimal layering.
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 Climate: Hot, Warm, Mild, Cool OPTIFADE OPEN COUNTRY
Scientifically optimized for engagement ranges of 40 yards and beyond at ground level in rocky terrain above the timber line. The Open Country pattern uses the larger neutral areas of the pattern (macro pattern) that are more critical to concealment at greater engagement ranges.

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 their 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.
