This is my first piece of Sitka gear and I have quickly become a fan. I hunt from October through January in the Pacific Northwest and Mississippi Delta, so I like to layer appropriately for the weather. Cold days I wear everything inside my waders with the shell outside and on warmer days with maybe a t-shirt. The jacket fits true to size and isn’t bulky like some other brands I have used. I wasn’t sure about the Optifade Marsh camo until I saw it in the field. It seriously disappears in the corn and grass better than the last three decades of camouflage in my closet. The call lanyard is convenient and nice to zip them in the pockets when I don’t need them. It’s one less thing I have to pull out of the blind bag when I’m setting up. The shell pocket is nice to load up a box of shells between the two pockets and not worry about wearing an ammo belt or keeping the blind bag close for reloads. It’s not a cheap jacket, but you get what you pay for with the Gore-Tex Pro. I know I can hunt all day in the rain and not worry about getting wet or cold. I plan on getting a lot of years use out of it and am already saving for some more Sitka gear. The jacket is awesome and I’m happy with spending a little extra on it. Take ‘em!
