Sitka Gear's Traverse Pant is constructed to help the big game hunter cover miles of mountain terrain with minimal resistance. A 4-way stretch polyester gives maximum mobility, and a Durable Water Repellent coating sheds light precipitation when walking through dewy vegetation or misty conditions. Internal mesh pockets allow for enhanced ventilation during warmer weather.Read more
DWR 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.
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.
