For bowhunters who hit the woods on opening day of archery season, Sitka Gear just released its Early Season Whitetail system.
Finished in Optifade Elevated II, the lightweight ESW system features 4-way stretch fabric, mesh ventilation and silent snaps for quiet, breathable comfort.
With a streamlined fit that won't limit a hunter's range of motion, the ESW pieces can function on their own or as part of a layering system during colder temperatures.
Sporting Permanent Polygiene odor control technology, the entire system prevents odor build-up in the early-season heat.
Constructed of durable four-way stretch polyester with body-mapped mesh ventilation, the ESW Pant stands up to rough brush while providing breathability. Cargo pockets feature silent snaps as well as divided panels for added stealth, and a water repellent finish offers protection in early-season showers. MSRP: $149
The button-up ESW Shirt also features lightweight stretch polyester in the body and arms for a quiet draw plus silent snaps for stealthy layering. A tall collar provides added protection from sun and bugs, while mesh pits help to regulate body temperature. MSRP: $129
With a Cordura nylon back and synthetic leather palm, the durable ESW Glove will stand up to many seasons of bowhunting. An exposed and reinforced thumb and forefinger design allow for an unhindered release and precision shooting. MSRP: $79
Quick-Dry polyester front panels and breathable mesh back panels ensure the featherlight ESW Hat keeps early-season sweat at bay. A rounded brim and low-profile closure allow for a customized fit. MSRP: $30
