If you are looking for the ultimate mid-layer for your waders or bibs, the Sitka Gear Gradient Pant is it. The Sitka Gear Gradient Pant's articulated patterning keeps the Gradient Pant from bunching, and the gusseted crotch means you'll be able to get around with zero restriction. When slipping on your waders, the Sitka Gear Gradient Pant's foot stirrups prevent the pant from riding up. The Sitka Gear Gradient Pant has a DWR finish that will repel water, and dry quickly. The high-gauge knit polyester face fabric of the Sitka Gear Gradient Pant minimizes friction, and the lofted Bfleece provides warmth and supple softness.
To maximize your Sitka Gear Gradient system, pair the Sitka Gear Gradient Pant with the Sitka Gear Gradient Jacket, and the Sitka Gear Gradient Hood.

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.
SITKA DESIGN NOTES
A warm pair of pants to wear under waders shouldn't be the job of ySitka's Saturday sweatpants. Sitka's approach was focused on developing the ultimate pant that won't compress under the weight water in waders, bunch at the boot and keep you incredibly warm. Sitka Gear found that the combination of high-gauge polyester knit face fabric bonded to highfleece backer fits comfortably under waders. The tapered leg is the key to reducing bulk in the boot area. Rounding out this pant is the built-in belt for adjustments even when layered-up, the built-in stirrup for ease of getting into and out waders and the DWR finish to repel moisture without wetting-out the face fabric.
