SITKA GEAR NECESSITIES: JETSTREAM HAT
The Jetstream Hat is constructed of WINDSTOPPER® fabric, and is creatively designed with a low-profile bill and full-ear protection.
Cut from the same fabric as the Jetstream Jacket, the Jetstream Hat gives your dome maximum coverage on bitter, windy days. It’s ideal for motionless ridgetop sits in frigid conditions. The GORE® WINDSTOPPER® Softshell fabric is 100% windproof, minimizing the effects of windchill. Yet it expels perspiration to form a microclimate around your brain that is both warm and dry.
Lightly insulated with moisture wicking Micro Grid fleece, the Jetstream Hat is cut to fully cover your head and ears. A short bill shades and protects your eyes from precip. The highly durable 4-way stretch polyester weave expands to fit a variety of head sizes. Gore’s advanced Durable Water Repellant finish makes light precipitation bead up and roll off, helping to keep you dry when small storms crop up.
WINDSTOPPER® PRODUCT TECHNOLOGY
WINDSTOPPER® products shelter hunters from the adverse effects of bone-chilling winds. The WINDSTOPPER™ membrane works with our base layers to prevent overheating and perspiration build-up by allowing moisture vapor to easily escape. WINDSTOPPER® fabrics offer soft, lightweight weather protection in one versatile and durable garment. Owing to its total windproofness and maximum breathability, WINDSTOPPER® products will keep customers comfortable longer across a wide range of weather conditions and activities.

Open country pursuits run the gamut of moderate to high activity peppered with periods of pure motionlessness. Sitka's Open Country system responds brilliantly to the varying activity level and quickly changing weather conditions that come with glassing open bowls, tiptoeing through aspen groves, battling scree fields, and generally covering miles at a time. Moisture management is the central theme of this line—the key to keeping you comfortable and active. Choose additional layers to accommodate forecasted conditions, as well as the unknown. Face fabrics add the utmost durability and minimum weight. The smooth-woven face dries quickly and offers excellent packability—great for the overnighter in a tent. The GORE® OPTIFADE™ Concealment Open Country pattern is optimized for engagement ranges of 35 meters or more, mountain or open environments, and stalking prey with minimal coverage. This is how we define Open Country.
