Constructed with Gore's WINDSTOPPER laminate, the
Jetstream Jacket is a no brainer for cool wind protection. Soft shell fabric facing allows a smooth and almost seamless finish, and helps to ward off a light drizzle and snow flurries. A guide's best friend, this jacket is a treat for glassing sheep on a wind-blown ridge or stalking into a north wind. The Jetstream's new hood this year adds even more funcitonality to an already proven performer in the field.

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.
The specially engineered WindStopper membrane not only provides full protection from the wind with a 0 CFM rating, it also stabilizes the microclimate close to the skin by allowing excess moisture to escape while preventing unwanted moisture from coming back in. Emphasis is placed on breathability.
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!
