"The Heavyweight Hoody is a personal favorite. It can be worn as a great warmth layer for early season hunts yet versatile enough to wear as an active layer on late season hunts. The heavyweight hoodie will just about do it all. It also is Polygiene Odor Control treated to neutralize odor and the half-length center zip is great for dumping excess heat. The low profile hood gives you extra comfort on chilly mornings and evenings."
The redesigned 2019 Sitka Gear Heavyweight Hoody is a much needed item in your mid-layer arsenal during those active late-season days and cold static hunts. The form fitting hood fits snuggly around your head, turning with you keeping your field of view clear. To aid in the 2019 Sitka Gear Heavyweight Hoody’s improved range of motion and greater comfort while wearing a backpack, Sitka’s engineers created offset seams on the shoulders. Use the stretch thumb loops to keep your sleeves in place while wearing a pack, or adjusting layers. The Permanent Polygiene Odor Control Technology neutralizes odor, while the channeled fleece insulation wicks away sweat and controls your moisture build up.
Polygiene Odor Control Technology is a natural fit for hunting. By permanently treating fabrics with low concentrations of silver salt, which has inherent antimicrobial properties and is naturally present in water, Polygiene safely eliminates the ability for bacteria to grow and effectively neutralizes odor.
Sitka Gear hunting hoodies use premium YKK Zippers across their product line for their reliability, durability, weather resistance, and quiet operation. They also print many of their zippers with GORE OPTIFADE Concealment for added stealth.
Traditional mimicry patterns based on human vision are designed to look like a specific type of vegetation or terrain. GORE OPTIFADE Concealment is the only scientifically proven concealment pattern based on animal vision to optically fade a hunter into their surroundings. By using advanced blends of micro and macro patterns to fool animal vision rather than mimic a particular shape, GORE OPTIFADE Concealment is more versatile and more effective at getting hunters close to game.
