    Fabric Details
  • WINDSTOPPER® Softshell

Intended for archery hunters on bitter, windy days.  Its short construction prevents any kind of sound barrier allowing for complete sensory awareness.  It also allows you to find your anchor point without any obstruction.  The Jetstream Beanie is designed to fit comfortably over your dome and upper ears, yet it's durable 4 way stretch polyester weave expands to accommodate layering.  Cut from the same fabric as the Jetstream Jacket, it's ideal for charging steep faces in bitter cold, or sitting motionless atop a ridge in more mild conditions.
The GORE WINDSTOPPER Softshell fabric is 100% windproof, minimizing the effects of wind-chill.  Lightly insulated with moisture wicking Micro Grid fleece, it expels perspiration to form a micro climate around your brain that is both warm and dry.    It's advanced Durable Water Repellant finish makes light precipitation bead up and roll off, helping to keep you dry when small storms crop up.

I think it's a great beanie, that is NOT too short. This may be due to the fact I have (short?/small) lobes. Like Shane above, I also wear a size 7 fitted cap, so I imagine his lobes must be larger than my own. I can easily fit it over my traverse beanie AND SITKA cap without exposing my ears, AT ALL. I love the amount of warmth it provides. Thumbs up overall.

Hey Shane - We appreciate your dedicated use and passion to improve SITKA Gear. Several great points that identify room for improvement. However, we wouldn't go as far as saying the Jetstream Beanie is a 'failure' but rather there is a gap in our line up. As we read your review it sounds like the basis to building a new product! Understand the fit was specifically designed for archery hunters. We intended the Jetstream Beanie to be a bit short. The short construction prevents any kind of sound barrier allowing for complete sensory awareness. The short construction also allows you to find your anchor point without any obstruction. We designed the fit to be slightly larger to accommodate layering. This allows a user to wear the Jetstream beanie during early season and layer with a Merino Beanie or Traverse Beanie as the temps drop. With this said, the Jetstream Beanie satisfies many hunters but does not solve the problems you are facing. We are introducing a new product this year that I can't fully discuss until May but it will hopefully remedy the situation. It will be constructed with GORE WINDSTOPPER, deeper stretch panels for more protection, and a little more insulation. I would still like to hear any additional insight or needs you have to ensure we have something for every situation!

Of the 16 products I own from Sitka, this is the only that is a failure. I had high hopes for this beanie considering I hunt where it is consistently blowing 20 mph or more. I own several pieces of gore wind stopper from multiple companies and love them all but the "fit" on this one is extremely disappointing. As the other reviewer commented the hat is "too short". Over half of my ears are exposed. The hat is also way to loose and not form fitting allowing for gusts of wind to go up in between the hat and your head. I wear a 7" in fitted ball caps so no my head isn't overly small or big. This hat simply doesn't get it done and leaves you exposed to the elements. The hat desperately needs to be made another 1-2 inches longer to fully cover your ears and implementing some spandex type fabric around the collar of the hat would make this hat useful and worth buying. Until then, I wouldn't recommend this hat.

This beanie is perfect for late season hunts as well as those bursts of wind coming up the canyon. It blocks the wind perfectly. It fits very nice on your head. It does expose the bottom of my ear lobes which then got cold. The jet stream jacket hood over the top eliminates this discomfort.
