Sitka Gear’s Women's Merino Core Lightweight Hoody is new to the Sitka 2019 line-up. This hoody is ultra-light with amazing warming and cooling qualities. The 2019 Sitka Gear’s Women's Merino Core Lightweight Hoody consists of premium 17.5 -micron merino wool spun around a nylon core. This creates an all-season, high performance layer that is nonrestrictive and comfortable while burning the boot leather. The athletic fit of the 2019 Sitka Gear’s Women's Merino Core Lightweight Hoody has been designed to accommodate a woman’s specific physique and needs. The wool is a natural odor control and the nylon gives the piece some durability. The drop-tail in the back helps keep your back covered and protected from the elements when sitting in a blind or stand.
To perfect your Women's Merino Core Lightweight system, pair it with the 2019 Sitka Gear Women's Merino Core Lightweight Bottom.

Sitka Gear's new merino products feature premium 17.5 micron merino wool blended with durable nylon and polyester, combining the warmth, moisture management, odor control and comfort of merino with the durability and elasticity of synthetic fabrics.
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.
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.
