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 their reliability, durability, weather resistance, and quiet operation. They also print many of their zippers with GORE® OPTIFADE® Concealment for added stealth.
SITKA DESIGN NOTES
Sitka Gear found hunters were needing a fully-featured late-season jacket that could withstand cold winds while remaining ultra-silent. Sitka Gear set out to tackle this need and more with the Fanatic. Sitka Gear sound tested fabric compared to whitetail hearing engagement and netted out with a GORE-TEX INFINIUM with WINDSTOPPER® barrier sandwiched between Berber fleece face fabric and Primaloft® SIlver insulation. Because of Sitka's innovative diagonal-zip design, Sitka Gear were able to include a pass-through hand muff lined in Berber fleece for exceptional warmth. To round out the design, Sitka Gear added functional pockets for a rangefinder and grunt tube that flank the diagonal zipper for quick at-hand needs.
