When you find yourself motionless for extended periods in extremely cold weather, you need an insulation solution that keeps your core warm. The Kelvin Hoody brings the protection of a sleeping bag in the form of a jacket to frost-ridden sessions spent glassing mountain topography. Enjoy the brilliant convenience of a balmy micro climate thanks to the 750 fill power grey goose down blended with PrimaLoft ultra-fine denier fibers.
"I use the Kelvin Series as my insulation layer for every cold Willamette Valley morning."
—Sitka Athlete Dave Smith
As part of your Big Game system, this intense insulator is like a sleeping bag for your upper body. While your legs chew up the miles, the Kelvin Down Hoody rides neatly compressed in an included stuff sack. When you stop to hunker and glass, it contains your body heat in an envelope of goose feathers.
We’ve stuffed the Down Hoody’s baffles with half a pound of PrimaLoft® Down Blend Gold insulation. The ample cut is designed to fit over the rest of your Sitka System, with wider arms, broader shoulders, and a longer torso than our other pieces, creating a portable capsule of balmy air where you can zip in and escape the chill. Insulated hand pockets are fully wrapped with down-filled baffles to thaw your fingers. The insulated hood provides additional heat containment, built in a dropaway configuration so it won’t tug at the jacket collar when not in use. A large internal pocket stows your cold-weather necessities.
Ounce for ounce, down is warmer than any synthetic material, and with proper care, it will last a lifetime. The Down Hoody sandwiches quality down between light, rugged polyester mini ripstop fabric with a Durable Water Resistant finish.

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.
