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.
ELEVATED FOREST We like truths. The longer you are in your stand, the better your chance of success. The Forest system honors this general truth with pieces patterned to fit close to the body—making long, extended sits bearable. Anchored by our core layering system, the Elevated Forest outerwear pieces drive a balance toward R-values and quietness. We've increased loft without adding weight, brushed face fabrics for soundless movement, and eliminated unnecessary features that add noise. The GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Forest pattern factors in the distance and extreme angles of this vertical environment. This is how we define Forest.
WATERFOWL The best waterfowl hunting can take place in the worst weather. Armed with this understanding, we developed systems centered around the most effective outerwear fabric technologies available and worked our way in. Insulating layers were designed to maximize warmth with minimal bulk to enable rapid mounting of a shotgun and fluid swings. Like all Sitka systems, next-to-skin moisture management is key to the functionality of all system pieces and are essential for maximized comfort. The GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Waterfowl pattern utilized is optimized for typical approach vectors and has factored in the constant movement of ducks and geese as well as the unique eye physiology of waterfowl. Concealment, mobility, and weather protection build the foundation. This is how we define Waterfowl.
