SITKA Gear, the leading producer of high-performance hunting clothing, has unveiled its groundbreaking Mountain Evo Jacket. This innovative jacket is specifically designed for demanding backcountry activities in varying climates and sweat-inducing conditions. It incorporates strategically positioned windproof materials in areas that are most crucial for active hunters and outdoor enthusiasts. Additionally, the jacket features flexible stretch panels in key body areas, such as under the arms and on the back, to enhance breathability.
The Mountain Evo Jacket is available in black as well as OPTIFADE Open Country and Subalpine patterns, catering to a wide range of outdoor pursuits that require a pack, including hunting, mountain biking, backpacking, and backcountry skiing. As a recent addition to SITKA’s technical apparel line, this jacket ensures optimal comfort during any outdoor adventure, offering ample freedom of movement and breathability.
John Barklow, Senior Product Manager at SITKA Gear, described the versatile Gore WINDSTOPPER® jacket as suitable for year-round active endeavors. The WINDSTOPPER panels integrated into the Mountain Evo Jacket effectively shield against convective cooling and light precipitation. Meanwhile, the breathable 4-way stretch panels minimize the need for pit zips, allowing unrestricted movement and keeping adventurers dry and comfortable throughout their pursuits. The ultrasonically welded and taped seams eliminate bulk, reduce weight, and effectively block out wind.
- WINDSTOPPER by Gore-Tex Labs technology provides 100 percent wind protection while remaining lightweight and breathable.
- Body-mapped 4-way stretch panels maximize breathability and mobility in crucial areas.
- Ultrasonic welded seams minimize weight and bulk.
- Contoured hood offers wind protection and concealment without compromising peripheral vision.
- Zippered hand and chest pockets provide convenient and secure storage.
- Weighs 13.6 oz.
SITKA Ambassador Beau Martonik shared his experience using the Mountain Evo Jacket during spring shed hunting. He praised its exceptional breathability during strenuous activities, preventing excessive sweating on the back caused by wearing a pack. When at rest or during slower moments, the jacket effectively blocks wind, eliminating the usual chill. Martonik expressed excitement about utilizing the jacket while pursuing turkeys in the Appalachian Mountains during the upcoming season.
