Your orange vest should offer more than just the required inches of color. The Sitka Gear Ballistic Vest makes shooting more comfortable with a reinforced foam shoulder pad and is treated with a Durable Water Repellent finish, making it an essential part of the Sitka rifle season system.Read more
Sitka waterproof breathable 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 retreat it. Make sure to use a spray on our softshell pieces, and a wash-in for 2.5 layer garments, like the Downpour series. Additionally, don't hesitate to treat your Mountain Pants with a DWR spray and watch the water bead off.
The vest runs a little small and the zippered pockets are high and not easy to access quietly, not very convenient. Also, the security ink tag was left on the vest when it shipped to me and I live in Ohio so I had to find a store that could remove it for me.
Best vest I own. I would recommend this product to anyone. Size runs true.
