Sitka Gear Dewpoint Jacket Open Country
At a mere 370 grams in a Medium, the Dewpoint is our lightest and most packable rain jacket. It is built uncompromisingly for ounce-counting backcountry hunters who rely on their rain gear to keep them safe in icy mountain rains far from the road. We worked with the scientists at W.L. Gore to develop a new three-layer, extremely light GORE-TEX® Fabric with one of the highest abrasion resistance ratings in our rain gear line. Built with microtaped and laser cut seams, it is 100% waterproof and highly breathable for moving fast in inclement weather. The innovative face fabric, a 20 Denier stretch woven nylon mini ripstop, bestows a stretchability that was previously impossible in waterproof garments.
By design, we kept features to a minimum. All zippers are welded and watertight. The full front zipper makes for easy on and off as conditions change. Deep pit zips mesh seamlessly with the hand pocket zippers. This eliminates the redundancy of separate zippers and cuts down even further on weight and bulk. An articulated, four-panel hood fits snugly around your head and moves with you as you turn, maximizing visibility. The zippered hand pockets and chest pocket cache your minimal necessities. The Dewpoint Jacket packs down and stuffs into its own chest pocket, conserving precious pack volume.
