Optifade
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.

GORE-TEX®
Garments engineered with GORE-TEX® fabrics are durably waterproof andwindproof and very breathable, guaranteed. They provide reliable weather protection and maximized comfort in all weather conditions. Excellent management of perspiration leads to optimized body heat regulation. No post activity chill. No cooling off due to wind chill. Each square inch of a GORE-TEX® membrane contains 9 billion pores. Each microscopic hole is 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, making it impossible for rain, snow and sleet to pass through. While each pore of a GORE-TEX® membrane is smaller than a water droplet, each is 700 times larger than a water vapor molecule. This is what enables GORE-TEX® fabric to breathe so that sweat vapor can escape, keeping you dry from the inside, the ideal solution for hunters looking for broad weather protection and style.

DWR
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.

Adjustable Length
Internal snaps allow you to shorten the length of the Kodiak Jacket when hiking or if you no longer need additional protection against the elements.

Sitka Care
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.

Sap
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.

Flammability
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!
