Because you’ll never shoot a buck sitting on your couch inside, the Sitka Gear Downpour Jacket gets you outside in the elements. The lightly brushed, GORE-TEX® 3-layer laminate creates a quiet, 100% breathable water-proof fabric. The articulated structure of the Downpour Jacket keeps you comfortable while sitting in a stand or blind. There is extra length in the seat to shed water off your back while keeping your bottom dry. The athletic fit keeps string contact to a minimum and well-shaped elbow and shoulders accentuate your range of motion through your shot cycle. The sculpted hood is fitted for maximum visibility, and the drawstring seals out moisture. The drawstring allows for the hood to move with your and prohibit vision obstruction.
When paired with the Sitka Gear Downpour Pant, the Sitka Gear Downpour Rain System is a very versatile, comfortable bomb proof set of rain gear.

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.
Provides unrivaled waterproof protection that is both durable and lightweight. The microscopic pores of a GORE-TEX membrane are 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, making GORE-TEX garments impenetrable to water from the outside. Those same pores are 700 times larger than a water vapor molecule, which means they allow sweat vapor to escape to the surface of the shell to keep you dry from the inside out. 100% Waterproof & Windproof.
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.
