Knocking on Doors

Big Game

Gaining access to private land can be an intimidating hurdle for most hunters, but it doesn’t have to be. In fact, knowing how to ask permission can be a hunter’s secret weapon, especially when it comes to accessing public land drainages only reachable via private land or, even, opening up a door to private land access for years to come.

This glove literally fits me like a glove. They fit like second skin: I can shoot my bow accurately with them on, they protect me from the sun and terrain and they breathe well. Most of my hunting is during warm to hot weather and I'm never in the field without the Ascent Gloves.

Excellent hot weather gloves. Wish I had these when I was in Iraq. Work Beth well at shielding hands from sun and keeping sweat away from palms and fingers while hunting. Also, unlike some of the hanger gloves I had, these are easier to put on. Don’t have to fight with them taking them off or putting them on.

I wore these for 12 days on a spot and stalk late archery elk hunt in Arizona. The terrain encountered was extremely rocky, steep, and covered with thorny vegetation. These gloves survived unscathed, as did my hands (with the exception of one tiny embedded thorn). The fit is excellent and the gloves are simple to put on/take off. Dexterity (including shooting my bow) is as good as it gets. The material in the thumb/finger for use with a phone/GPS worked perfectly and is essential nowadays. Also essential is the Polygiene odor control. As someone who sweats a lot when working hard, I can attest to its effectiveness and would ask that Sitka expand its use elsewhere in the product line. These seemed like a bit of an extravagant purchase at first but after using them I now would not go on a warm weather hunt without these gloves.

I really like these gloves... They fit extremely well. The only reason I didn't give them 4 stars is because I feel having the ascent line name they could have been a tad bit lighter material, had more breath ability, or perhaps most relevant/feasible, been fingertipless at least in the thumb and pointer like some of the other Sitka gloves. Don't get me wrong though, they are honestly probably still the lightest gloves I own that are made to be durable.

Layering is a science with our CORE system of next-to-skin products. Each of the fabric weights—light, mid, and heavy—wicks away moisture to keep you warm and dry, while Polygiene® technology safely and permanently neutralizes odors using naturally antimicrobial silver salt.
