The Hudson Jacket is the arsenal for those who prefer the length of a traditional jacket, with a bit more insulation and room for versatile layering. The combination of a GORE-TEX® laminate and reliable body-mapped PrimaLoft® insulation, make the Hudson a must for the mid- to late-season waterfowler.
The Hudson Insulated Jacket is engineered for extended exposure to wet and frigid conditions. The GORE-TEX® Hardshell is 100% waterproof and breathable, completely sealing out moisture and wind to form a microclimate around your body. Inside the microclimate, we’ve built in body-mapped Primaloft® insulation and micro check fleece to trap additional body heat where you need it, while reducing bulk for freedom of movement.
It is fit to accommodate further insulation layers like the Kelvin and Duck Oven Jackets for when arctic fronts send ducks in search of food and most hunters in search of fireplaces. All zippers are welded and watertight. Two chest pockets, two shell pockets and two magnetic tuck-away call pockets keep you organized and focused on the sky. The fully adjustable hood rotates and swivels with you, so there’s no impediment to your vision. The cuffs have watertight gaskets that adjust to fit your wrist, so you can submerge your hand momentarily while working with deeks without getting water up the sleeve.
TECHNOLOGY PRIMALOFT® INSULATION TECHNOLOGY PRIMALOFT® is the ultimate in insulation technology for hunters. The patented blend of microfibers is engineered to retain maximum warmth even when wet. Ultra-fine insulating fibers create a product that is quiet and less bulky, allowing for greater freedom of movement. Easy care PRIMALOFT® provides the warmth of down, but it is fast drying and more breathable.
New for 2014, comes the ultimate combination of PrimaLoft® ultra-fine fibers and water-repellent down, offering high-performance warmth and comfort in variable conditions while adhering to the PrimaLoft® promise of an environmentally safe technology free of fluorocarbons.
• Thermally Efficient
• Superior Water Resistance
• Dries Faster than Down
• Wind Resistant
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.

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.
