Why We Made This

We wanted to redefine how a softshell jacket performs on active outdoor pursuits. Our solution was to create a jacket that breathes well, blocks wind, repels light rain and snow, and doesn’t inhibit movement. We achieved this using GORE® WINDSTOPPER® for unbeatable wind protection, a DWR finish to prevent the face fabric from wetting out and articulated patterning for a complete range of motion.

Seems sizing Sitka gear is highly variable.
In this jacket I found the sleeves to be short and forearms too tight even in the XL Tall size.
Ordered XXL and the sleeves were still too short.
I had to go all the way up to XXXL for the sleeves to be long enough and then the body of the jacket was huge.

I've been looking for a fairly lightweight, quiet, windproof, non-camo jacket for quite some time and saw that this appeared to fit the bill. I am 6'1" 185 and wasn't sure what size to get so waited to order until I could try one on for sizing. The large was a little snug and didn't leave enough room for layering, so ordered an XL. It fits my needs in all aspects. I have worn it chukar hunting in 15 degrees with a brisk wind as well as in mid-30's with light rain, and it proved to be everything I had hoped for.

Not quite sure why a windproof jacket would have big open cuffs for the wind to blow in? Sitka makes great gear but I had to return this jacket as it has big open cuffs and the wind would just blow right up them. The jacket is almost perfect but that alone is a no go for me. Sitting in the wind with your arms up while glassing with these open cuffs just doesn't make sense.

Giving three stars bc there is not an option for two and a half stars. I’m extremely luke warm on this jacket for the price. For the purpose of going up and down hill out west, it’s just ok.The pit zips help with overheating. I’m not really sure what’s so amazing about this jacket. When the wind blows and it’s 40 degrees you’re def not warm even when wearing a light base layer and a t shirt. You need to add a heavy base layer or a hoody to keep warm (I understand the layering systems). I was expecting more of a go to all purpose jacket for the cost. When wearing a t shirt alone the pit zippers are an annoyance. With multiple base layers and the kelvin over it you have a solid suit.

There’s a reason it’s their top-selling jacket.

It’s unbelievably versatile. So far, I haven’t worn it much below 30 degrees, but with a puffy jacket, I could easily get down to 15 degrees. I’d suggest sizing up.

I’m 6’2” 206 lbs with a 43/44R chest, and I could easily put a 260 wt. merino base layer, fleece jacket, and arc’teryx atom LT and my Stratus bibs under them without feeling bulky. I have fit my heavy duty puffy jacket under it, but it’s a little tight in the forearms. I wouldn’t mind a little bit more room in the elbows and forearms to allow for maximum layering when I need more than the three layers, but it works. I bought an XL in Elevated II and am very happy with it.

It’s also very quiet. Admittedly, my Stratus bibs are as quiet as outer space, but there isn’t a buck on earth that will spook from a brush of the Jetstream. No crackle. No sandpaper sound. It’s quieter than my other softshell.

I can fit Leica rangefinder in the chest pocket for easy access, which is amazing.

Can a perfect product be improved upon? Sure.

1. Move the interior chest pocket to match the exterior one like the old Stratus.

2. Add a small left shoulder zip pocket. This is great for chapstick or ear protection.

3. Open up the forearms a little for layering.

4. Add access for a harness behind the shoulders like on the stratus.

This is a great jacket for all purposes. Layer it with a t-shirt for early season to cut the chill/wind/rain. Replace the t-shirt or add to with something like the ambient hoodie or jacket and you're good to go through mid season. OR you could add a base layer, mid layer, then the jetstream and you can get through some pretty nasty weather all the way through late season.

Look, I'm as cheap as they come. I've tried almost every brand of hunting clothing out there and if I haven't tried it, I promise I've spent countless hours researching it. I'm the kind of person that will spend 4 hours researching a $20 product and comparing it before a purchase. I can say with absolute certainty that Sitka is the BEST clothing line on the market. Not just hunting clothes, but best overall. Their clothes are cozy, durable, and designed to keep you extremely comfortable with minimal layers and bulk. You can buy other brands and replace them every few years, or buy Sitka and your set for decades if not life. Buy once cry once!

Bottom line is this isn't clothing, its equipment. More than that, it's equipment that could quite literally save your life in the back country. Once you realize that, the price is absolutely justifiable. I trust this company so much that I will buy their stock if they go public and I'd quit my job to work for them if they have an opening. That is how much I believe in Sitka.

I have the previous version of this coat (purchased June 2021) and absolutely love it. I'm 5'10 and 195 and a large fits me well. It stops the wind better than any jacket, and the Pit Zips are a GAME CHANGER for dumping heat when you're on the move. There are plenty of pockets, it's breathable, pretty quiet overall, and sheds light rain pretty well. It's warm enough with a base layer into the 20s if you're actively moving, but if you're stationary I would definitely add some extra layers. I wouldn't wear it in a downpour or busting briars, as it does get some snags, but overall this coat is probably my favorite one in the closet. I'm considering buying another now that they have it in solid colors for going out on the town if the new version is as good as the old version. Will have to compare with the new version the next time I'm at the store and see it in person.

Having owned a previous version of the Jetstream for a couple of years now, this jacket should have been named something "New", as it is nothing like the previous version. The outer material is not nearly as durable as the older version and I question it's ability to holdup as the older version has. I feel like SITKA should call this jacket something else and come out with a Newer version of the Jetstream with a more durable outer layer, that will hold up over time and withstand the elements and provide a more modern fit. I was disappointed that this jacket is not as waterproof/repellent as stated. In the Features and Specs of the garment, it lists "Water" as 4 out of 5, I would say it is more like "2" under light precipitation at Best. It will get wet and eventually soak through in anything heavier than a light drizzle. I don't find this latest version well suited for an Outer Layer, but more of a mid-layer under a Water-repellent jacket like the Downpour, Hudson or Delta Wading jacket.

I think SITKA missed the mark on this one and they need to do better. I still use my new version, but as mid-layer, not an outer layer and I will give them a chance at making this one right.

I would recommend this to a friend, but as mid, non-waterproof layer with good wind-stopping ability.

It should be noted, I tried one size smaller Jetstream jacket on and the cuffs seemed to be better. Just wish the cuffs had a hook and loop or something to close the cuff down better. This would have been a 5 star if not for the massive cuffs.

I bought this jacket a few months ago but wanted to use it for awhile before I wrote a review. The jacket is perfect for cool weather hunting and I do like the arm vents for walking in to your stand. The lining does a great job at stopping the wind. Our PA bear season had a few frigid mornings with temps in the low teens. I added the thin down liner that came with my old Browning quad system and it was perfect. I stayed warm while on stand. The fit of the jacket is unusual in a good way. I'm 6'1" and 250lbs, barrel chested and ordered the 2XL. When I first put it on I was concerned I wouldn't have enough room for more layering but after adding a down liner, the fit seemed to stay exactly the same. All around a great coat.

Overall I am very happy with the "wind stopping capability" of the garment. It does an excellent job of cutting wind and keeping you warm. However I have worn this 10-20 times and the outer fabric has begun to "pill". This is light use.. not wearing a pack or breaking brush. I almost want to ask for a warranty as the fabric seems to be so low quality for the suggested "outer layer" use.. It's similar to a nice sweatshirt or something not a hard outer layer.. I'm upset that the piece looks very worn so early on:/ I've had a similar north face wind breaker garment that looks brand new 5 years later.. My review of this product is not how I feel about the majority of Sitka products as most are top notch. I would just request Sitka replaces this outer layer material.

This is a versatile jacket that can be worn from early season into the mid-late season with adequate layering while still maintaining enough mobility to saddle up and draw your bow. I bought the jetstream to pair with Stratus pants for mid season outers because they have the same warmth rating. This is a mismatch. The pants are far warmer than the jacket. If you’re looking for a mid season set I recommend looking at the Equinox pant and adding appropriate base layer bottoms.

I purchased this Jacket August of 2022, to replace the Dakota Jacket as they have discontinued it and in need for a replacement. I was hoping this would be the new everyday wear jacket, not too thick and hot for Alabama Waterfowl but would still have room to layer. I have wore it everyday of Early Teal season and Early goose that was cold enough to grab a jacket. Plenty of room to layer underneath, I grab the merino heavyweight and the Fahrenheit vest, recently replaced by the new Kevin Aerolite, plenty of room through mid section and chest but tight in the armpits unfortunately. On the warmer days I pair it with the lightweight hoody and unfortunately have ran into the same issue too tight under the arms and causing chafing. The jacket fits great other than that, but unfortunately I will be looking for the next piece of gear to replace it. Sure I could up size and get a large but then it would go against why I love Sitka, well fitting thought out layering gear, also I’m 5’10 175lbs for reference. Great piece of gear love the material, the light weight of it, great fit all around other than the armpits.

The Jetstream is a home run. This jacket replaced a similar jacket from a direct competitor of Sitka after I found out "waterproof panels" and "waterproof hybrid" don't mean what you think they mean, and Kuiu (oops) doesn't stand behind their statements. The Jetstream however,is a phenomenal jacket that out performs the advertising claims. As a ranch manager/hunting guide I depend on my gear to last and perform well. This jacket fits the bill and every feature is very well thought out. The versatility is great, I use it from early season archery hunts with the pit zips open to late season mountain lion hunts on snowmobiles with an insulation layer underneath, and everything in between. My one warning; I'm normally a solid large in everything I wear, 5'9" 170lbs, but when I kneel down in a large, the back of the jacket comes up over my belt and allows wind in.

Jacket feels light and very comfortable. Got it because it's supposed to be more water repellent than the Dakota. Definitely won't be as warm as the Dakota but will get me to late season for sure. One thing I'd love to see, Velcro on the cuffs! It would be awesome to tighten the cuff down for reaching into the water and not have to wear gloves. I'm good with the cuff itself getting a little damp if it was tight but without velcro the water will be going all the way up the sleeve. Just a thought. Would be awesome to have!

I absolutely love this jacket. I purchased it in the neon orange color and I wear it everyday pretty much. It fits perfectly in a Large, and I am 5'10 and weigh about 170lbs. Very comfortable, and very warm. I rode my electric bike 30mph in 50 degree weather and I was not cold. It also handles water well. The hood is perfect in my opinion. Not too baggy, nothing flimsy about it, and it keeps me dry. Easy to zip up, and the zipper vents throughout the jacket are a nice touch, as I often find myself getting hot when wearing a warmer jacket.

Much better fit than the previous version. The new fabric is quieter and softer. I’m impressed with the new Jetstream jacket. Home run Sitka!

I have an older jet stream jacket in a 2xl that fits fantastic and it’s even bigger so I can fit a sweatshirt and other clothes under it, I ordered the same size with this version and it is far far far from the original jacket. I was pretty dissatisfied with this product. I am exchanging for a different size, but something tells me I will be disappointed in that too.

I have an older Jetstream jacket in camo and love that jacket. I wanted an all black one to wear in the blind, so I ordered a new one and was very disappointed it was not the same weight or warmth as the old one.

I'm disappointed in the changes to this jacket over the years. I'm writing this review to try and impact the direction that future Jetstream iterations take.

As a hunting guide, I've owned Jetstreams going back to 2013. Back then, the Jetstream was a sturdy piece of technical outerwear. I've really beaten on my 2013 & 2014 Jetstreams, in hard weather and hunting conditions, and they've taken it all without failure.

I purchased a 2022 Jetstream - I hate to say that the recycled outer poly fabric is more like a simple hard fleece sweatshirt (think UnderArmour, Nike, etc). There's just no way I can see this version standing up to hard use. It's still marketed and cut like outerwear; it feels like the material would be better suited to a mid- layering piece. The cuffs are honestly at least 1-2" too big and there's no way to tighten them. I can't keep the cuff on my wrist (you could save on gloves by wearing it over your hands).

To me, this feels like a jacket design that saves on production & materials to aid Sitka's race to being ubiquitous. In the early days they were the best gear - now they seem like they're aiming to be the 'available everywhere' gear. I understand the market strategy - there's just no way the 2022 Jetstream is worth the high asking price.

Please bring back a burly version of this jacket; bring back a more durable outer material. Hunters and guides will be waiting for the Jetstream to return.

Love everything about this jacket. It comes as advertised and layers great with the ambient hoody. 5'11 and 180 pounds. The fit couldn't be more perfect in large

The updated fit on this version of the Jetstream really hit the mark. I had to size up in the old model to fit my shoulders but it was too big everywhere else. I got this version in my true size and the fit is amazing. It is also much more quiet than the old version and is a sleeker design all around (seams, hood, cut, etc.). Highly recommend upgrading if even if you have the old version. It is worth it.

Exactly the jacket needed for my Manitoba field duck hunts as an outside shell. I am 5'11", 195lb got an extra large and fit is perfect with base layer and aerolite vest underneath. Not a lot of extra room, definitely need to size up at least 1 size. General design for functionality is excellent. My new go-to shell always in my truck.

Everything looks great, but these jackets should have a longer tapered oval shape for both front and rear.

Slightly better in my opinion than the one I have from 2 years ago. This one is quieter as stated. The fit is good. For comparison I purchased the Hudson 6 weeks ago in XL (standard fit). This new Jetstream is standard now, but before it was performance. I am 5'10 and 225 and ordered the XL in the new Jetstream. It is a good fit, but to me is more fitted than the XL Hudson in standard fit. For the previous Jetstream I own that was performance fit I had 2XL. It is just to wide in the body, but right in the shoulders (and the XL in performance fit is to small).

Having owned the previous iteration of the Jetstream, there are some features that I miss about it compared to the new model. First, the old hood was much roomier and felt like it covered your head better and provided better weather protection. Second, the face fabric of the new solid colors is in fact quieter than the predecessor, but it does not feel as durable and appears to show wear with abrasion quickly. The updated fit is long overdue and makes it so much easier to layer under the jacket while still providing a great fit. This gets 4.5/5 stars in my opinion.

This is truly one of the best jackets ever made. Pockets are perfect size in the perfect location. The arm vents are easy to operate to dump heat when you need to. Repels light to medium rain just fine. Cut the wind wonderfully. The material is quiet and has a great feel both inside and out. I have many different jackets but nothing has compared to the Jetstream. I’m 6’0” 195 lbs with broad shoulders and long arms. The XL is perfect. I live in Arizona but hunt out of state and haven’t had a problem layering with the XL in 20 degrees. This will be the best jacket you will ever own. I guarantee it.

I wore the Jetstream Jacket on almost every water and field hunt across the country, and it is absolutely my go-to piece. It stands alone in early and mid-season, and functions as a great outer as the temps drop. It’s particularly helpful on boat rides, blocking wind and light spray without adding excessive bulk and restricting movement. It compresses and packs well, to throw on once you’ve cooled down from hiking into the hole.

The Jetstream Jacket is one of my favorite pieces. It’s lightweight and allows for cool, comfortable mobility. It also is great for a quick layer to add a little warmth when needed. I also love it because it is very packable which is a huge deal when on long walks to the duck hole.

Really dig this jacket. I always just used a rain jacket to block the wind but after rocking the Jetstream for a bit, I get the appeal of a windstopper jacket now! You can hike hard with a pack while wearing this with the pit zips open with minimal sweating, when you stop, close it all up and you can sit and glass comfortably in a nasty breeze. Also sheds water pretty good.

Fit true to size for me compared to other SITKA pieces
