NAPA, CA. Sitka Gear Inc., has introduced the Downpour Jacket and Pant to offer hardcore whitetail hunters an opportunity to utilize the highest-quality raingear on the market. The Downpour Series is designed with GORE-TEX® PACLITE® fabric, which is extremely lightweight, waterproof and breathable. To keep game-spooking noise to an absolute minimum and to further differentiate the Downpour Series from the rest of the pack both the Jacket and Pant feature a lightly brushed face.

Sitka Gear’s top-quality products feature the most scientifically advanced visual concealment pattern ever to hit the market – GORE® OPTIFADETM Concealment, the first-ever concealment based on the science of animal vision.  The new Big Game/Forest pattern takes into account the distance and extreme angles found while treestand hunting and works to obscure elevated hunters. GORE® OPTIFADETM Concealment Big Game/Forest incorporates a micro and a macro pattern.  The unique micro-pattern considers the way a deer or other ungulate perceives color, the ratio of positive to negative space and other visual elements to create an effect that allows the hunter to blend with the animal’s perception of the environment.  The macro-pattern breaks up the symmetry of the human body so that if a hunter is detected, the animal will not be able to identify the hunter as a predator.
