How does GORE-TEX Work

Keeping rain out is pointless if your outerwear traps sweat and moisture that drenches you from the inside out. GORE-TEX products are not just durably wind and waterproof, they’re also breathable, so they keep out rain while allowing perspiration to vaporize and escape. When you’re wearing a piece of SITKA outerwear made with GORE-TEX technology, you’ll stay dry and comfortable — from the inside out, and the outside in.

Behind the Design



Cole Kramer

“As an Outfitter on Kodiak Island, I spend 200+ days a year guiding hunts. The conditions are harsh and often wet and cold. I need an insurance policy in my pack to keep me and my clients dry, comfortable and focused. Over the past 20 years, my success has been simple: You must be present to be successful – not in your tent or at home because of weather.”

Whitetail GORE-TEX Gear


John Dudley

“When the whitetail rut is on, it’s dark to dark for me in the stand regardless of weather. I rely 100% GORE-TEX to keep me dry, warm and in the stand. I’ve sat in it all…rain, sleet, hail and snow and many times, thanks to my gear, I've found success when others would have called it quits.”

Waterfowl GORE-TEX Gear


Ranar Moody

"Over the years, I’ve learned to always keep a GORE-TEX shell in my boat. It's saved me from shivering in misery during long, wet rides up and down the river. I’ve learned this the hard way: it's best to keep GORE-TEX within arms reach to stay dry and focused on the hunt.”
