Sitka Elevated II Stratus Bib
One of SITKA Gear’s timeless classic designs, the Stratus Jacket is a core foundational piece of mid-season bow hunting apparel. This fleece offering balances warmth, wind and water protection, and breathability in a silent outer layer. With the right layering this Optifade Elevated II pattern jacket will likely be all you need for hunting whitetails from the stand across most of the US and makes one of the very best items to try as your first Sitka investment!
The micro fleece outer shell face is treated with a durable water repellent (DWR) finish to quickly shed light rain or snow and inner micro-grid fleece provides a touch of insulation while allowing the jacket to move freely over a baselayer with no bulk. A GORE-TEX INFINIUM with WINDSTOPPER® membrane is sandwiched between fleece layers to stop the harshest winds yet still moving sweat and moisture through the system. The innovative Constant-Connect SITKA® Safety Harness Pass-Through Port with Cobrax® secure slide-to-lock snap and magnetic closure eliminates the need to disconnect from a harness when adding or removing gear keeping you safer and quieter in the stand.
An articulated performance fit delivers incredible range of motion without any bulk or bow string interference, and the drop tail in the back easily maintains coverage from the seated position. Several pockets finish off this piece with not only a focus on weather protection but also gear organization. Two zippered chest pockets will keep a rangefinder, gps unit, or phone sized items handy, plus a shoulder loop specifically designed to keep a grunt tube useable with minimal motion. Finally, the hood has not been forgotten in this purpose-built design providing protection and concealment of your head and neck with enough adjustment to maintain all your peripheral sight even when turning your head.
