Why OPTIFADE™?

GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment is the first and only concealment system ever scientifically designed around the way a hunter’s prey views the world. Traditional camouflage relies upon mimicking hunters’ surroundings. GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment breaks the mold by tricking the animal’s eyes into not recognizing the hunter as a predator by using their eyes against them.


 

 

Fit & Function

The best waterfowl hunting can take place in the worst weather. An uncompromised water barrier, consistent warmth, and maximum mobility, are requirements’ for your system. Our Waterfowl system provides breathable protection from the elements, will keep your core warm, and will do it all without the standard bulkiness of “traditional” waterfowl gear.

Our Mission

A paradigm shift...to engineer gear that is an extension of the outdoor experience and not simply a barrier between the user and the environment. By utilizing only the most advanced fabrics and construction technologies, Sitka will always design gear that is engineered to work together as complete systems, excelling in performance, function, and protection.

 

OPTIFADE™ Predator or Prey?

GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Waterfowl pattern is based on scientific understanding of how waterfowl process ever-changing shadow signatures to determine distances and assess potential threats. The Waterfowl pattern incorporates eight colors, dithering and a hexagonal micro pattern to confuse the bird and disrupt the human shape.
