Sitka Gear's top-quality products feature the most scientifically advanced visual concealment pattern ever to hit the market - GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment, the first-ever concealment based on the science of animal vision. 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.
So last year on my goat hunt I used Sitka Gear for an incredibly strenuous hunt. There were two things you notice right away, first is the fit. It is not loose or baggy like most hunting clothing, it moves where it needs to and provides a very comfortable yet sleek design. The second is moisture control, both inside and out. The stuff is obviously designed by people who are both athletes and hunters. Moisture control is essential to comfort, and more importanly survival. Sitka has both down to a science. This year I am wearing Sitka on all of my Deer Hunts too!.
