With a lightly brushed face to keep you stealth in the whitetail woods and a GORE-TEX laminate, the Downpour Series is a perfection companion for quietly powering through a rain shower or heavy drizzle in your treestand.
“The first time I used the Downpour in action, I was caught in the worst rainstorm I’d ever seen. Luckily, I brought my Downpour Jacket and I stayed completely dry the whole time. The brushed outer face and full leg zips make this an absolute must for the whitetail hunting application."
—Sitka Athlete Jeff Simpson
If you spend enough time in the stand, you’re guaranteed to get rained on. The Downpour is the quietest jacket ever made that’s Guaranteed to Keep You Dry®. It is designed specifically for sitting motionless as storms roll through.
The waterproof yet breathable GORE-TEX® Laminate is wrapped in a lightly brushed polyester knit fabric to minimize friction noise. The thin, packable build means it can live in your pack until the sky darkens. Intelligent patterning gives you a full range of motion, crucial when the buck you’ve been waiting for presents himself. All zippers are welded and watertight. The full front zipper makes for quick and easy on-and-off, while two zippered hand pockets and a zippered chest pocket stash the essentials. The four-panel hood moves with you to limit its impact on your peripheral vision. The cuffs adjust to seal out the elements.
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.

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.
