When it is too mild to wear bibs and too chilly to don our Early Season Pant, you'll thrive in the Stratus Pant. The micro-check backer and WINDSTOPPER® combination offers just enough protection from that frosty breeze. The brushed face ensures silent movement when the moment of truth comes. Pull the knee gasket over your boots to keep out the sticks and leaves, and easily store your essentials in the side cargo pockets.
"To me, the Stratus Pant is the best pant for hunting whitetails during the rut in the Mid-West. The WINDSTOPPER® laminate helps me stay warm with less bulk, and the brushed outer surface is very quiet. The limb tip pocket on the inside leg, at or just below my knee, is an essential feature I use to help support my traditional bows while remaining motionless with an arrow knocked."
—Sitka Athlete Mike Mitten
When it’s too mild for bibs, the Stratus Pant is constructed to keep you comfortable and focused in the high winds and intermittent precip of the mid season. The extremely quiet GORE® WINDSTOPPER® Softshell is 100% windproof, forming a protective microclimate around your lower half that still breathes, keeping you comfortable when hiking in a stand or dragging out a deer. A lofted micro check fleece lining offers moderate insulation without bulk, making this the ideal jacket for all-day stand sessions as temperatures fall and autumn gusts intensify.
The lightly brushed face fabric reduces friction noise, helping keep you undetected. Articulated knees and a gusseted crotch reduce bunching, freeing you up for a full range of motion as you walk in, climb up and hold your position. Draw-string gaskets fasten over the tops of your boots, keeping out all matter of debris, insects and snow. Accessible hip pockets – reinforced for clipping in knives and multitools – and quiet-snap cargo pockets cache necessities like rangefinder and grunt tube so they don’t tumble to the forest floor.
WINDSTOPPER® PRODUCT TECHNOLOGY WINDSTOPPER® products shelter hunters from the adverse effects of bone-chilling winds. The WINDSTOPPER™ membrane works with our base layers to prevent overheating and perspiration build-up by allowing moisture vapor to easily escape. WINDSTOPPER® fabrics offer soft, lightweight weather protection in one versatile and durable garment. Owing to its total windproofness and maximum breathability, WINDSTOPPER® products will keep customers comfortable longer across a wide range of weather conditions and activities.

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.
