Completely redesigned for 2014, the Coldfront Jacket is engineered for extended exposure to wet, frigid conditions. The three-layer GORE-TEX® soft-shell is 100% waterproof and breathable, which we've lined with an insulating micro-grid fleece. The perceptibility quiet face fabric, built from tightly woven polyester, delivers bombproof durability and lasting water repellency for the ultimate protection from bitter cold and sopping weather.
"The Coldfront Jacket provides extra warmth and outstanding weather protection for any mountain hunt. I use the Coldfront on both early spring hunts and fall/winter hunts when temperatures drop and the snow is here to stay. Excellent ventilation allows me to continue to hunt hard and stay dry even after the snow has set in. In addition, the quiet soft shell is a great feature when stealth mode is crucial to the success of a bow hunt."
—Sitka Athlete Dustin Roe
GORE-TEX PRODUCT TECHNOLOGY Garments engineered with GORE-TEX® fabrics are durably waterproof and windproof and very breathable—guaranteed. They provide reliable weather protection and maximized comfort in all weather conditions. Excellent management of perspiration leads to optimized body-heat regulation. No post-activity chill. No cooling off due to wind chill. Each square inch of GORE-TEX® membrane contains 9 billion pores. Each microscopic hole is 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, making it impossible for rain, snow and sleet to pass through. While each pore of a GORE-TEX® membrane is smaller than a water droplet, each is 700 times larger than a water vapor molecule. This is what enables GORE-TEX® fabric to breathe so that sweat vapor can escape, keeping you dry from the inside—the ideal solution for hunters looking for broad weather protection and style.
BREATHABLE Because of their superior breathability, GORE-TEX® products allow perspiration to escape during active use.
WATERPROOF The microporous structure of the GORE-TEX® membrane does not allow water to penetrate.

OPEN COUNTRY Open country pursuits run the gamut of moderate to high activity peppered with periods of pure motionlessness. Sitka's Open Country system responds brilliantly to the varying activity level and quickly changing weather conditions that come with glassing open bowls, tiptoeing through aspen groves, battling scree fields, and generally covering miles at a time. Moisture management is the central theme of this line—the key to keeping you comfortable and active. Choose additional layers to accommodate forecasted conditions, as well as the unknown. Face fabrics add the utmost durability and minimum weight. The smooth-woven face dries quickly and offers excellent packability—great for the overnighter in a tent. The GORE® OPTIFADE™ Concealment Open Country pattern is optimized for engagement ranges of 35 meters or more, mountain or open environments, and stalking prey with minimal coverage. This is how we define Open Country.
