The Jetstream Lite Jacket brings broader versatility to the active western hunter’s arsenal with a highly weather resistant outer fabric and the built-in protection of a WINDSTOPPER® Membrane. Offering a trimmer fit than the regular Jetstream, the Jetstream Lite Jacket incorporates stretch panels to deliver an athletic fit, as well as super clean cuffs for easy layering.
The Jetstream Lite Jacket packs the wind stopping punch of it’s namesake into a streamlined package that’s 30% lighter and just as durable. It is designed for high alpine hunts in early and mid season, where wind is a given and precip is probable. The GORE® WINDSTOPPER® Softshell fabric is 100% windproof to minimize the effects of windchill. Yet it expels perspiration, forming a microclimate around your body that is both warm and dry. With proper layering, it will take you well into the mid season.
The Jetstream Light Jacket is athletically cut to fit your form and eliminate bulk. A highly durable 4-way stretch polyester knit is combined with even stretchier fabric shoulder panels to deliver uncompromising range of motion. With an advanced Durable Water Repellant finish, light precipitation beads up and rolls off, helping keep you dry when small storms crop up. Two zippered chest pockets cache necessities like your rangefinder and GPS unit. The brushed knit backer has no loft and provides very light insulation.
“For me, this is the perfect jacket for early season hunts, or to fill the role as a wind barrier in addition to a more elaborate system. On hunts when I’m doing a lot of vertical and need to store it, it doesn’t take up a bunch of pack volume. It's handy for times spent glassing in a crosswind and I love the shoulder stretch panels for drawing my bow and being mobile.”

I'm a big fan of the jestream light jacket for early season pronghorn hunts in Wyoming. Perfect for early morning and evening to cut the chill and wind. I am 6'1" and 185 and ordered an XL because I wanted to put a layer under for later season hunts. The XL accommodates a wool sweater and is a good fit and not too loose.
I used this jacket on my first sheep hunt last month in New Mexico. We ended up doing a 14 mile round trip hike up and down canyons, across open country, and fluctuating weather with snow and 40-50 mph sustained winds. I used the Jetstream Lite as my shell and layered underneath. The jacket worked awesome! At times the wind almost knocked us off our feet but I never felt it cut through the fabric. After being in that type of wind for that long I'm convinced. On top of that the optifade open country camo pattern utilized on this jacket must work pretty well because the ram I shot from up wind never saw us. This jacket held up great and will be a necessity on any future hunts in windy country.
A phenomenal jacket that I used on a recent Antelope hunt in Utah where temps were in the 50's. I combined it with a thin wool layer and a Traverse zip T and it kept me warm and comfortable at 10,000 feet with lots of wind. If you need a tough and light wind breaker that still adds warmth, I highly recommend this jacket. Awesome piece of Kit!!!
This jacket is awesome. I just used it on an archery elk hunt in CO. It was great for the early mornings and late evenings when it would cool off when I needed something a little more than just a shirt. it really cut the wind and chill. I have also been using it archery deer hunting back home in MI. It is very quite the camo pattern is great as both elk and deer seem to look righT through me and not notice me whatsoever. The jacket is extremely light and very easy to carry or throw in a pack even if u may not need it. I have been successful both elk hunting and deer hunting in this jacket and feel that it contributed to my success. Thanks Sitka for the worlds best hunting gear.
So I live in Colorado, and the days and night can get pretty extreme with hot and cold on a day to day basis. This jacket really exceeded my expectations. I was hesitant to buy it at the price I bought it for, but after some forums and reviews I bought it. Virtually a perfect jacket!! It is Very warm for how thin it is ...I wore it on a 18 degree F night while it was snowing, and the wind was blowing hard. This does exactly what it says...windstop. I experienced NO wind, so I just felt the cold, and it wasn't cold at all! I wore a t-shirt and this jacket, and I was sweating while I was walking to my car. The ONLY thing I have to say, is that I really wish for the price that there was a hood. I feel that this jacket incorporated with a hood as thin, and built like the jacket would really be the perfect jacket for the Rockies. I would highly recommend this jacket for anything having to do with light carry, nice heat-to-weight ratio, and in a nice Camo pattern. Never will I question the quality of this gear for the price.
Awesome piece here. Fills the gap between the Jetstream and the Ascent Jacket. I love the Jetstream Jacket but way too warm for warmer days, but dislike the Ascent on cooler or even warmer days. The Ascent is a little redundant in my opinion, but this new piece from Sitka is absolutely perfect. Nice and light which means packable, yet very affected at keeping wind out when glassing ridges and can be worn on warmer days with out over heating. Another must have Sitka piece.
