Designed for warm weather hunts and charging through brush and undergrowth, this durable, ultra-breathable outer layer expels heat and perspiration. Use the Ascent Jacket when you wish you could wear a T-shirt, but need full concealment and scratch protection. It is the ideal early season outer layer for Big Game and Whitetail Systems.
At just over 15 ounces, the Ascent Jacket is built for hunters on the move. The athletically cut 4-way stretch woven polyester fabric offers maximum range of movement and impressive abrasion resistance. The full front zip makes for easy peel off and pile on, while the silent finish of brushedfabric lets you come to full draw in stealth. Two hand pockets and one chest pocket are positioned so as not to conflict with your pack's waist and chest straps.
Optifade camouflage from GORE is the first and only concealment system ever scientifically designed around the way a hunter's prey views the world. It's the only concealment system to combine a symmetry disrupting macro pattern with the fractal geometry based micro pattern designed to become nothing in the eyes of prey at engagement ranges of 20 meters and beyond.
Sitka outer layers are originally treated with a Durable Water Repellant finish (DWR), which keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job. This coating needs to be replenished once per season, or more often if the piece gets a lot of use or washing. If water is no longer beading up on your shell, it's time to repeat it.
In general, washing your gear in cold or warm water with mild non-deoderant powder laundry soap (non-toxic, biodegradable types preferred) and hand drying it are the best ways to clean Sitka products.
Freeze it and then pick it off with a dull object. Rub the remainder out with a water and white vinegar solution and then wash with detergent.
Like most synthetics, Sika Gear will melt or burn when exposed to flames or direct heat. Use caution when around fires, stoves and hot metal surfaces!
Fits good. Not too bulky. Light weight for those Early fall hunts. Good for hiking too.
