Who is Sitka?
Sitka is a company owned by Gore, who makes Gore-Tex. They make the finest hunting clothing that there is. All of their patterns are designed to confuse the animal being hunted so they can’t tell whether you are a friend or foe. All of the patterns have been scientifically engineered and proven to achieve this.
There is no finer hunting clothing available than Sitka. Every piece in their lineup has been carefully chosen and designed so there is no overlap between products. Sitka makes products designed as a layering system that you can build off of. You start with your next skin layers and then work outward and you can add additional pieces later on as needed.
WHY WE LOVE SITKA
We love Sitka products because of their ability to keep the user comfortable and dry regardless of conditions. The clothing takes you to the next level went out in the field. If you want the best and most effective camo patterns, start with a couple of core pieces from Sitka and then build onto your system as you go.
OUR HISTORY TOGETHER
We have carried Sitka at good sports since 2014. It has proven to be solid brand with a loyal following. The gear simply works as it should. There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear. And this is especially true in a back country hunting environment when out in the field for weeks at a time in some instances.
The Science of Concealment
GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Subalpine is designed for stalking and ambushing ungulates from ground level in tree-covered and vegetated terrain.
Subalpine is optimized for engagement ranges of 50 yards and less.
GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Elevated II is designed for whitetail hunters in an elevated position.
Its macro and micro pattern configurations echo the higher contrast of bright sky against the shaded underside of foliage while allowing hunters to extend their season as the leaves change.
It’s designed for engagement ranges of 80 yards or less and keeps the hunter undetectable at 15 feet up in a tree stand.
GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Waterfowl Marsh is designed for layout and blind hunting in the marsh, standing crops, and cut stubble fields.
While most patterns are designed as though the bird is on the ground looking at the hunter, the Marsh pattern utilizes a swirling effect to exploit the vision of birds in constant motion above the hunter.
The optimal engagement distance is between 35 yards at 45-degree and steeper angles.
GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Open Country is scientifically optimized for engagement ranges of 50 yards and beyond at ground level in rocky terrain above the timber line.
The Open Country pattern uses the larger neutral areas of the pattern (macro pattern) that are more critical to concealment at greater engagement ranges.
