Sitka Gear Blizzard Parka Open Country
The Blizzard Parka is our warmest Big Game top, ideal for extended exposure to the most extreme conditions. Paired with the Blizzard Bib Pant, it locks you into a 3-layer GORE-TEX® vault filled with world’s first water-repellent hybrid insulation to create a practical walking sleeping bag that’s 100% waterproof.
The Blizzard Parka is built for hunters and guides who need the ultimate waterproof insulation for the coldest conditions imaginable. It is ideal for low-activity hunts at extreme latitudes.
The jacket is insulated throughout with the world’s first water-repellent hybrid insulation of 60% 650 fill power white duck down and 40% ultrafine Primaloft® fibers. This is wrapped in 3 layers of GORE-TEX® membrane and concealed with a highly durable polyester face fabric. Designed to fit your body, not layered over bulky fabrics, the articulated patterning and minimal bulk give you freedom to move while keeping clear of your bowstring. It is sized to fit over the Blizzard Bib Pant, and hangs between the length of a parka and a jacket, with a reinforced tail for riding and hunkering down in rugged country. Internal cuffs seal off heat leakage, and a RIRI waterproof front zipper ensures you’ll stay dry. The drop-away hood leaves your peripheral vision intact while holding in heat, and hangs comfortably down your back without pulling at your collar when not in use. Exposed hood pull cords make for easy adjustment, even when wearing bulky gloves. Elevated hand warmer pockets slide open to warm your digits, while five welded and watertight zippered pockets keep you organized.
