90% SERIES OUTER LAYER

Breathable, windproof and water repellent for reasonably cold days/high output hunting

Sitka Gear Hunting Clothing - 90% Outer LayerThe Sitka 90% Series offers a quiet, four-way stretch Soft Shell fabric that is windproof, highly breathable, versatile, and DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finished. Soft Shell fabric gives you the combination of a highly breathable woven outer layer that is bonded to a moisture-wicking lining that provides insulation. This system promises the highest level of air/moisture exchange unimpeded by coatings, laminations, seals, or barriers. Soft Shell Technology has inspired multi-seasonal garments that replace the traditional three layer system, creating less bulk and offering more versatility.

Soft Shell systems pass more air and vapor in one minute than waterproof breathable systems can pass in 24 hours. The outer weave endures all but the worst downpours or snowstorms. With four-way stretch, abrasion resistance, and weather resistance; soft shell fabrics prove the ultimate outerwear for hunters. The 90% Series is Sitka’s all-mountain version of the Soft Shell. With a low loft lining, the 90% Jacket provides insulation for reasonably cold days or high output activities.

NIMBUS SERIES OUTER LAYER

Waterproof, breathable, lightweight protection in extreme weather conditions

Sitka Gear Hunting Clothes - Nimbus SeriesThe foundation of the Sitka Nimbus System is a 2.5 layer waterproof and breathable laminate engineered to keep the water and snow out and your perspiration under control. The result is dryness after a solid soaking. The DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish keeps water rolling off, while micro-taped seams keep all water out. Designed for a full range-of-motion and built for full range-of-weather, the Nimbus membrane offers exceptional four-way stretch while remaining waterproof, breathable, and soft to the touch. The Nimbus Series sets the standard for extreme weather conditions, building off the success of the ’07 Sitka Downpour System which won Field and Stream’s Gear of the Year.

The Sitka Nimbus Series is built to be packed with you for all occasions. At less than 20 ounces per piece, it easily fits in your pack. YKK watertight zippers keep your valuables dry, while articulated elbows and knees eliminate binding and lifting. Focus on details like Melco taping extends wear and tear by beefing up your zipper openings. TPU (Textured Poly Urethane) zipper pulls are easy to use with gloves, as are cuff tabs allowing for a snug fit. Ventilation panels let you dump heat from both your torso and legs when climbing. Thoughtfully designed and tailored to fit, this all-weather combo is unbeatable.

Technology: Micro taped seams

CELSIUS SERIES INSULATION LAYER

High loft, soft shell fabric with waterproof laminate for cold weather hunting

Sitka Gear Hunting Clothing - Celsius SeriesSitka developed the Celsius Series with a performance-driven, cold-weather, high loft soft shell fabric called Celsius Soft Shell. New for 2008, the Celsius Series builds off the strengths of the 90% Series by adding more loft for much colder conditions and a waterproof laminate to keep water out even after extended rain or snow.

The Sitka Celsius Series features Body Mapping technology for increased warmth. Body mapping places insulation where you need it and takes it away from areas where it’s not needed, thus enhancing the fit and range-of-motion of a hunting garment typically considered large and bulky. Nothing is sacrificed in protecting you from the elements by placing high loft insulation in the right places, so you can face the lower temperatures of extreme weather hunts or low activity stands.

Fabric Details: Polyester face, mega or high loft inner, DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish

CORE & TRAVERSE SYSTEMS BASE LAYERS

Engineered to keep you dry and scent free

Sitka Gear Hunting Clothing - Core Base LayerThe core principle to the Sitka System is layering beginning with the Core System or Traverse System of base layer. These base layers move moisture away from your skin to keep you dry. Dry means you are warm when it’s cold and cool when it’s hot, which is why Sitka uses the best next-to-skin fabrics that exist: Polartec®. Moisture and high relative humidity next to the skin cause discomfort, but Polartec® Power Dry® and Polartec® Power Stretch® keep the skin dry through three complementary mechanisms.

The fabric is highly breathable and does not restrict the movement of moisture vapor. “Touch points” on the fabric inner surface draw off the sweat which is then wicked off the skin to the outside of the fabric where it spreads rapidly for evaporation. Polartec® Power Dry® fabrics move at least 30% more moisture away from the skin than single component fabrics.

Sitka Gear Hunting Clothing - Traverse Base LayerWhen the sweat reaches the outside of the fabric, it spreads out to many times its original surface area, enabling it to dry at least 2 times faster than cotton. Include Polartec Odor Resistant Technology to effectively combat body odor through the utilization of encapsulated silver, and you have two systems: Scent Prevention and Moisture Management.

THE TRAVERSE SYSTEM BASE LAYER offers a superior warmth-to-weight ratio. Expedition weight with body-hugging stretch and breathability, the Sitka Traverse System keeps you dry when you sweat and provides warmth without extra weight.

Sitka Gear Hunting Clothing with PolartecPolartec® fabrics with Odor Resistant Technology effectively combat body odor by inhibiting the growth of odor-causing bacteria in the fabric. Odor Resistant Technology is not a surface treatment and contains no chemicals. It uses pure silver, micro-encapsulated in the yarns that are knit into the fabric construction that will last for the life of the garment. It is safe, natural, and offers permanent odor protection.

    Polartec® Technical Highlights

  1. Patented bi-component construction keeps your skin dry when you sweat.
  2. Highly breathable to provide comfort in all activities; does not restrict the movement of moisture vapor.
  3. Dries quickly.
  4. Odor Resistant Technology provides permanent odor protection by inhibiting the growth of odor-causing bacteria in the fabric.

  6. Soft surface next to skin provides all-day comfort.
  7. Machine washable.
