Sitka Gear GORE® OPTIFADE™ Concealment Big Game Forest Now Available!

New for 2010, Sitka Mountain Gear has expanded their lineup to include a new camouflage pattern as well as many new clothing items designed primarily for the tree stand hunter.  

Sitka Stratus Jacket

 GORE® OPTIFADE™ Big Game Forest utilizes technology similar to the tried and true OPTIFADE™ Big Game Open Country but focuses more on micro-patterning to increase the effectiveness of the camouflage pattern at closer distances. The technology behind this pattern helps to disrupt the shape of the human body as well as blend in with the forest canopy above helping you to literally disappear within your surroundings.

 Sitka has taken this new pattern and matched it with a line-up of clothing designed to maximize comfort and concealment in the woods.  By utilizing technical fabrics such as GORE-TEX® and GORE® WINDSTOPPER® and combining them with premium insulating materials like 100% Natural Goose Down and PrimaLoft®, Sitka Gear’s new line will keep you in the stand hunting comfortably in virtually any conditions. All of the outwear pieces also feature a lightly brushed exterior fabric to reduce noise.

  1. I’m still confused. Open country and forest. In states where the season changes which is the better to have, forest or open country. Too bad they don’t make a coverall product to accomodate hunters who already possess a pile of hunting clothing, ergo, camophlage the camophlage.

    • Hi Tom, Essentially Open Country is designed for western hunting in open terrain where engagement distances range from 25-30 yds and greater. The Open Country pattern uses a combination of macro and micro patterning to help eliminate the human profile in these types of conditions. The Forest pattern is ultimately designed with the treestand hunter in mind. The Forest uses a micro pattern design and colors that are designed to disapear within the canopy above as an animal looks up from below. The two pattens really serve two differnent purposes, unfortunately noone has been able to develop the “one camo fits all” pattern yet!
