The Sitka Gear Thunderhead Jacket is for those low to moderate active hunts when you need bombproof rain gear. The Sitka Gear Thunderhead Jacket’s 100% waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® 3L laminate provides 100% waterproof protection sandwiched between a silent and hydrophobic brushed knit face and interior enables you to remain hidden and dry during your big game pursuits. The drop-away hood has a drawstring that pulls the hood close to keep your peripheral vision clear, and then stows away when you do not need it. The articulated patterning of the Sitka Gear Thunderhead Jacket allows for a full range of motion and fitted forearms keep the jacket fabric clear of your bowstring.

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.
