Ounce-counting, backcountry-dwelling gear-heads will make space for our lightest-weight packable rain solution. Built with 2-Way Stretch GORE-TEX® laminate and a minimalist mentality, the Dewpoint will soon be in every bivy hunter's arsenal.
"The Dewpoint (Jacket/Pant) is my favorite piece of gear in the Sitka Waterproof category. Very light, Very packable… you almost don't even notice it in your pack… but you definitely notice it when you need it. This is a bomber piece of equipment that eliminates everything you don't need in a waterproof shell. This is with me every day during the fall."
—Sitka Athlete Mark Seacat
At a mere 12.7 ounces, the Dewpoint is our lightest and most packable rain jacket. It is built uncompromisingly for ounce-counting backcountry hunters who rely on their rain gear to keep them safe in icy mountain rains far from the road. We worked with the scientists at W.L. Gore to develop a new three-layer, extremely light GORE-TEX® Fabric with one of the highest abrasion resistance ratings in our rain gear line. Built with microtaped and laser cut seams, it is 100% waterproof and highly breathable for moving fast in inclement weather. The innovative face fabric, a 20 Denier stretch woven nylon mini ripstop, bestows a stretchability that was previously impossible in waterproof garments.
By design, we kept features to a minimum. All zippers are welded and watertight. The full front zipper makes for easy on and off as conditions change. Deep pit zips mesh seamlessly with the hand pocket zippers. This eliminates the redundancy of separate zippers and cuts down even further on weight and bulk. An articulated, four-panel hood fits snugly around your head and moves with you as you turn, maximizing visibility. The zippered hand pockets and chest pocket cache your minimal necessities. The Dewpoint Jacket packs down and stuffs into its own chest pocket, conserving precious pack volume.
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.
Because of their superior breathability, GORE-TEX® products allow perspiration to escape during active use.
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.
