NAPA, CA. Sitka Gear Inc., has released the versatile Stratus Jacket and Bib for hunters that don't shy away from nasty November weather. The lightly brushed Stratus garments feature midweight WINDSTOPPER® fabric to stop body-temperature draining wind in its tracks While the Stratus Jacket and Bib work to keep hunters warm and comfortable, they also provide breathability that is certain to be appreciated on long walks to and from treestands.

Sitka Stratus Jacket! Sitka Gear's top-quality products feature the most scientifically advanced visual concealment pattern ever to hit the market - GORE® OPTIFADETM Concealment , the first-ever concealment based on the science of animal vision. The new Big Game/Forest pattern takes into account the distance and extreme angles found while treestand hunting and works to obscure elevated hunters. GORE® OPTIFADETM Concealment Big Game/Forest incorporates a micro and a macro pattern. 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.
