Inside SITKA 

Our Story

The SITKA Gear story started on a September morning several thousand feet up from the tent, soaking wet from sleet and sweat, cold, and completely fed up with gear that was clearly not up to the task. Under the shelter of a gnarled Whitebark Pine on that remote ridge, surrounded by a chorus of bugling bull elk, the question was achingly clear: why was hunting gear so inadequate?

Our Why

Hunting is no longer a matter of life and death for most of us. We do not rely on wildlife for food, shelter, clothing or tools. The systems of modern society provide what we once had to earn on our own, which raises an interesting question: If you don’t need to hunt, why bother?

SITKA Guarantee

We stand behind every product we make. If you are unhappy with any of our products at the time you receive them, please send them back. Damage due to wear and tear will be repaired at a reasonable cost...

SITKA Design

Hunting is an exercise in humility. We might be at the top of the food chain, but when it comes to fair chase pursuits of species that evolved over thousands of years to survive relentless predators and the harshest conditions imaginable, we are simply outmatched in the wild...

Stewardship

The future of hunting is more than just the future of our company. It's the future of wildlife, wild places, public lands and precariously balanced ecosystems. We believe in doing everything in our power to protect this future, and we invest heavily in conservation organizations across the country. But investing means more than just sending out checks.

Women's Gear

Every aspect of every product in the SITKA Women's line is built for the female hunter. With an obsessive attention to detail, we dedicated thousands of hours of research, design and rigorous testing toward one simple goal: to provide women with unequaled technical hunting gear that enhances the experience. State-of-the-art technologies combine with flawless fits to provide maximum comfort, effortless movement, lightweight durability, breathability, and ultimate protection from the elements.

It's one of the oldest tricks in nature: blend into your surroundings to hide from predators or to stalk and strike prey.

As mountain hunters, we are conditioned to brave the elements. This is precisely why our apparel systems receive so much attention.
