The Stratus Beanie incorporates a WINDSTOPPER® laminate and a high-loft backing for additional warmth during the late-season, but utilizes the lighter weight traverse fabric for better hearing over the ears.
"I use the Stratus Beanie in cold, windy weather. Since I shoot a traditional bow with a wider bowstring angle, I like hats without a brim so I have better string clearance. I can layer the beanie under or over the Balaclava for better protection from wind while improving concealment."
—Sitka Athlete Mike Mitten
Similar to the Jetstream Beanie in function, the form is different. The Stratus Beanie brings the WINDSTOPPER® down your forehead for additional warmth, but utilizes the lighter weight Traverse Fabric for better hearing over the ears. A higher lofted backer keeps your head warmer in those cold woods of December.
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.
