Sitka Stormfront Jacket, Optifade Open Country
The newly redesigned Stormfront Series is fit to comfortably accommodate maximum layers on top of your cold and wet weather layering system, in an uninsulated shell form. Constructed with a GORE-TEX® laminate, the Stormfront Series is hunting’s go-to protection for extended wet weather protection, period.
The zippered hand pockets are placed higher so their contents are held clear of your backpack waist belt, and when you put your hands in your pockets, water flows off your elbows rather than into the pockets. Two chest pockets and two forearm pockets cache your necessities and keep them dry.

The Science of Concealment
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.
GORE-TEX® Product Technology
Garments engineered with GORE-TEX® fabrics are durably waterproof andwindproof and very breathable — guaranteed. They provide reliable weather protection and maximized comfort in all weather conditions. Excellent management of perspiration leads to optimized body-heat regulation. No post activity chill. No cooling off due to wind chill. Each square inch of a GORE-TEX® membrane contains 9 billion pores. Each microscopic hole is 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, making it impossible for rain, snow and sleet to pass through. While each pore of a GORE-TEX® membrane is smaller than a water droplet, each is 700 times larger than a water vapor molecule. This is what enables GORE-TEX® fabric to breathe so that sweat vapor can escape, keeping you dry from the inside—the ideal solution for hunters looking for broad weather protection and style.
