The Merino Core bottoms can be effectively worn under any of our pants and were created to help reduce odor, provide warmth, and keep you dry. The Merino Core Bottoms are designed to ensure a full range of motion while adding no extra bulk.
"The Merino Series is an essential piece of my system for it's high warmth-to-weight ratio."
—Sitka Athlete Dave Smith
With the same benefits as the Merino Core-Zip T, the Merino Bottoms make a perfect base layer from a snowy grind in the Rockies to a frigid Midwest stand. Merino bottoms will regulate your body temperature, move moisture away from your skin and are naturally odor resistant.
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.
