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 utilizes a wide range of PrimaLoft insulation technology based on the intended end use of each garment. Through specialized applications and by body-mapping PrimaLoft, they fully leverage the benefits of each technology and optimize the end performance of their insulation layers.
Gold Down Blend: A hybrid of 70% Hydrophobic European Goose Down (750-Fill Power) and 30% Primaloft fibers resulting in a warm-when-wet, water-repellent, fast-drying, lightweight and packable insulation.
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
Traditional down insulation is easily compromised by moisture and compression while 100% synthetic insulation has the ability to withstand both but limits packability of a jacket made for frigid conditions. Sitka's design approach was to leverage a hybrid insulation that delivers the warmth-to-weight ratio and packability of down with the durability of synthetic insulation. The added Windstopper layer provides fully-windproof protection, serving up the ideal defense required to withstand the elements of the late season.
