Whether you wear the Jetstream Vest as an insulation layer or a core outer piece, you’ll be rewarded with stellar wind-stopping capacity brought to you compliments of WINDSTOPPER® laminate.
Cut from the same fabric as the Jetstream Jacket, the Jetstream Vest can be used as a core insulator under an outer jacket when the temperatures plummet, or as an outer layer in more mild conditions. The GORE® WINDSTOPPER® Softshell fabric is 100% windproof, minimizing the effects of windchill. Yet it expels perspiration to form a microclimate around your core that is both warm and dry.
Lightly insulated with moisture wicking Micro Grid fleece, the Jetstream Vest is athletically cut to fit your form and eliminate bulk. The highly durable 4-way stretch polyester weave moves with you as you bend and pivot. Two zippered hand pockets and a zippered chest pocket cache the necessities like your rangefinder and GPS unit.
"In my system, I use a vest for insulation. The light loft of the Jetstream Vest is ideal for cutting the chill of an early morning. However, because I use the 90% Jacket primarily, I need the wind blocking ability of the vest in my system for when the wind picks up. The Jetstream Vest serves that purpose perfectly."
- Sitka Athlete Corey Jacobsen
I've not had the chance to use this one a hunt yet, but I have worn it camping and backpacking several times. I've worn it on sub-freezing days over a long sleeve t-shirt, and sub zero days under a coat. The Windstopper material definitely does it's job and the high collar keeps drafts away from your neck. Overall a great piece of gear. I have one problem with this vest, which is the same problem I have with most of the Sitka line. I am 6'2" tall and 200lbs and in good shape. I try to buy "tall" clothes because they fit a guy with my build better. The bottom of this vest rides right at the middle of my belt. It's not long enough. If this (and other jackets/shirts) was another 2 inches in length, it would be PERFECT.
I used this over the cold weather hoodie and it was great 3rd season elk in Colorado stopped the wind and added the extra warmth on the cold 17 deg mornings
This is honestly my favorite piece of gear that Sitka makes. It's extremely versatile. It's amazing how much warmth this piece adds. But it still breathes extremely well. Paired up with the Core and Traverse it kept me extremely comfortable hiking in temps at 25 degrees and with the wind blowing 10-15 mph. This vest is always with me once the temps start to drop. The windstopper works perfectly and does exactly what it's suppose to do. A must have piece of gear!
The Jetstream Vest is great as an outer layer in conjunction with the Core series for those cool spring, fall, & summer days. It is also great as a mid layer when those late fall or early spring winds still have bite to them. I lowered my rating 1/2 star because of the white zipper back (really?!?). It sticks out like a sore thumb unless the garment is all the way zipped up.
Early season must have! Light weight and packable. Perfect for keeping your core warm and the wind off of you while keeping the bulk down. Great for pairing with a zip-T in warmer temps and then using as a layer piece with a cold temp system. The pockets are a nice touch and are as comfortable as a hoody's. Super versatile and a must have for your sitka system.
i am a gore hunt tech but before i joined that team i had already purchased two Jetstream vests, open country and a solid. along with with many others pieces i paid full price for because the gear is great and does its job. a traverse hoody and the vest will get where you need to be in mid September.
The Jetstream vest provides all the warmth I need during early season hunts when teamed up with a core or traverse undershirt. The Gore WINDSTOPPER will make sure the wind doesn't cut through you stealing your warmth. I also use the vest as a layering piece as the temperature starts to drop. I test product for GORE and the Jetstream vest is a critical piece in my layering system.
The Jetstream Vest is an absolutely fantastic piece of gear. I can team it up with a light shirt in the early season and keep the morning chill off my back while glassing or put it over my Traverse in the late season and hike all morning without being too hot or cold. I test product for GORE and they really got it right with this vest. The pocket sizes and locations are great, the WINDSTOPPER will keep your core warm when the wind wants to cool you down while the neck and arm holes are snug to your body which keeps the wind from sneeking in.
