The articulated patterning helps keep you dry with its extra length in the seat, the fitted forearms minimizes string contact, and well-shaped elbows and shoulders allow for a wide range of motion through the draw cycle. The Sitka Gear Downpour Jacket has a fully adjustable hood designed to maximize your field of view, and safety harness pass-through which was new to the 2018 Sitka Gear Downpour Jacket.

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.
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.
