SITKA GEAR - WATERFOWL
Fit & Function
The best waterfowl hunting can take place in the worst weather. An uncompromised water barrier, consistent warmth, and maximum mobility, are requirements’ for your system. Our Waterfowl system provides breathable protection from the elements, will keep your core warm, and will do it all without the standard bulkiness of “traditional” waterfowl gear. We only choose the most advanced fabrics for final production of our products, and that’s why we employ GORE-TEX®, WINDSTOPPER® and PrimaLoft®. These high-tech materials enable hunters to stand up to all weather and connect with their environments in optimal comfort. View more information on Sitka Gear technology here.
GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Marsh
Waterfowl hunting is done in a high contrast environment. Skylight from the horizon or light reflected from the water surface will shine through gaps in rushes, creating concentrated light spots. GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Waterfowl Timber pattern is high in contrast to be consistent with the environment and includes elements that are light in color and elements that are darker in color. GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Waterfowl Marsh pattern is designed for layout and blind hunting in the marsh, standing crops, or cut stubble fields. While most patterns are designed as though the bird is on the ground looking at the hunter, the GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Waterfowl Marsh pattern takes into account with a swirling effect that the birds are usually above the hunter in flight, and are in constant motion. The optimal engagement distance is between 35 yards and 45 degrees and steeper angles.
GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Timber
The GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Waterfowl Timber pattern takes into account how ducks, geese and other waterfowl see. Rather than mimicry patterns that make the hunter look like something, the Waterfowl digital concealment pattern is intended is to make the hunter appear to be “nothing” to the animal. GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Waterfowl Timber is optimized for engagement distances of 10 to 40 yards in the darker environments of the flooded timber. Because the water reflects both the brightness of the sky and dark underside of the canopy, the pattern displays areas of high contrast. But as a bird moves along its glide path closer to the hunter, its environment darkens, thus the pattern’s overall dark and lower contrast appearance.
