Maximize Stealth and Concealment with the Intercept Collection: SITKA Gear Redefines Hunting Apparel with Innovative Design and OPTIFADE Concealment

SITKA Gear, the manufacturer of high-performance hunting apparel, introduces the Intercept Collection, featuring the groundbreaking Intercept Hoody and Pant. With a commitment to concealment, and designed for scent, sight and sound suppression this collection helps keep hunters undetected from game while spot and stalk hunting.

The carefully chosen and engineered textiles in the pant and hoody of the Intercept Collection eliminate noise from arm, thigh or leg abrasion during movement. The hoody features elbow pads, and the pants feature removable knee pads made from military-grade D30 to provide protection while enabling hunters to crawl silently into bow range.

To cater to the dynamic situations hunters encounter, SITKA has integrated specific technical materials into each piece, such as ArmorSpun Merino Wool into the hoody and stretch nylon with bonded poly/wool into the pant, providing the finest in performance, durability and comfort. Available in SITKA’s renowned OPTIFADE Subalpine camo and Deep Lichen in a solid, the Intercept Collection enables backcountry hunters to keep out of sight when hunting rugged and challenging terrain.

“Bowhunting demands traversing through unforgiving landscapes filled with dense vegetation, rocky and rugged terrain,” stated John Barklow, Senior Product Manager at SITKA Gear. “This advanced product collection benefits the hunter through merino wool’s remarkable temperature regulation and natural odor control with the durability required for the demanding pursuit of spot-and-stalk hunting.”
