    I’m normally not a guy to wear a vest, but the jetstream vest is awesome. It’s cut is nice so it fits well and looks good when you’re wearing it. The wind stopper is perfect when paired with the little bit of insulation It has. I find this to be a great piece when the day warms up some and you shed your heavy outer layer of it cools off a little in the evenings during a hunt but still need some wind protection. I like to wear it just over a heavy weight core zip T and it’s great at keeping me comfortable without the bulk.

    Love this vest! There has yet to be a trip into the woods that I have no worn this since owning it! Works casually with a t-shirt, layered on top of core light/heavyweight for fall hunting, and always works into my late season layering kit as well! Very highly recommend this piece of gear!

    I've never been a vest guy before but this is turning me into one. I bought this vest in mud with a plan to wear it just for everyday as well as early season hunting all the way through late season hunting. To me, the vest and a long sleeve shirt is good for hunting in 70+ degrees weather. Once it gets down into the 60's and below is when I begin using it for a base/mid-layer. I don't think that this vest is loud so to me it's ideal to wear hunting whitetail deer. The vest is very thin which surprises me because the WindStopper in this vest is amazing. It is an extremely versatile piece and it comes to every hunt with me whether I end up wearing it or not.

    I'm 6 foot and have found that the vest fits true to size, XL for me. However, if you are planning on wearing this on top of a jacket or hoodie I would order it one size up.

    Great vest! Blocks the wind, adds warmth to your layering system, packs small and reasonably lightweight. I wish this came in tall sizes like the jacket. I'm 6' , 200lbs. XL is baggy in the front, L is perfect fit but it a bit short for my torso. Kept the large but this would be so much better with an extra couple inches in length. As far as performance, its does exactly as advertised!

    I have this vest in open country for hunting and in mud for every day. Just ordered it in black as well. The perfect vest for most any condition. Can be layered to make it ultra warm or warn with light layer below for wind and rain resistance and can stay cool. Have hunted with this vest in near zero degrees and warn it on just cool fall days. It is my go-to vest for hunting, work, and every day use.

    This is by far my favorite piece of hunting gear. Great at blocking wind and keeps you warm while still being light enough for the hot days during archery season. Fits great and seems to repel light rain fairly well. Have 2 vests and 2 of the Jetstream jackets. Please don’t ever stop making this!

    Phenomenal product! Rarely leave home without it. Fly fishing, chukar hunting, early season archery, you name it. It keeps the core warm, wind out and is great for when you pop a squat on the mountain to glass or are hiking around and don't want to wear a jacket but need to regulate your body's heat as you go. I have a handful of Sitka products and the Jetstream Vest is hands down my most used. For sizing reference, I'm 6' and 200 lbs. and the XL gives me the length I need and has room to layer underneath.

    One of my favorite vest from Sitka. The Windstopper technology works great as an outer layer over the top of a Sitka base layer (traverse hoody is my favorite) on windy, cold days. I also wear this piece in Mud as casual everyday wear around clothing as well.

    Great vest! The Gore Windstopper technology does its job by keeping the wind from reaching your core, in return keeping you nice and warm. Very true fitting to size (I'm 6'1" and 185 lbs and the large is a perfect fit). This is also a great vest to use for casual wear as well.

    I've not had the chance to use this one a hunt yet, but I have worn it camping and backpacking several times. I've worn it on sub-freezing days over a long sleeve t-shirt, and sub zero days under a coat. The Windstopper material definitely does it's job and the high collar keeps drafts away from your neck. Overall a great piece of gear. I have one problem with this vest, which is the same problem I have with most of the Sitka line. I am 6'2" tall and 200lbs and in good shape. I try to buy "tall" clothes because they fit a guy with my build better. The bottom of this vest rides right at the middle of my belt. It's not long enough. If this (and other jackets/shirts) was another 2 inches in length, it would be PERFECT.

    This is honestly my favorite piece of gear that Sitka makes. It's extremely versatile. It's amazing how much warmth this piece adds. But it still breathes extremely well. Paired up with the Core and Traverse it kept me extremely comfortable hiking in temps at 25 degrees and with the wind blowing 10-15 mph. This vest is always with me once the temps start to drop. The windstopper works perfectly and does exactly what it's suppose to do. A must have piece of gear!

    The Jetstream Vest is great as an outer layer in conjunction with the Core series for those cool spring, fall, & summer days. It is also great as a mid layer when those late fall or early spring winds still have bite to them. I lowered my rating 1/2 star because of the white zipper back (really?!?). It sticks out like a sore thumb unless the garment is all the way zipped up.

    Early season must have! Light weight and packable. Perfect for keeping your core warm and the wind off of you while keeping the bulk down. Great for pairing with a zip-T in warmer temps and then using as a layer piece with a cold temp system. The pockets are a nice touch and are as comfortable as a hoody's. Super versatile and a must have for your sitka system.

    The Jetstream vest provides all the warmth I need during early season hunts when teamed up with a core or traverse undershirt. The Gore WINDSTOPPER will make sure the wind doesn't cut through you stealing your warmth. I also use the vest as a layering piece as the temperature starts to drop. I test product for GORE and the Jetstream vest is a critical piece in my layering system.

    The Jetstream Vest is an absolutely fantastic piece of gear. I can team it up with a light shirt in the early season and keep the morning chill off my back while glassing or put it over my Traverse in the late season and hike all morning without being too hot or cold. I test product for GORE and they really got it right with this vest. The pocket sizes and locations are great, the WINDSTOPPER will keep your core warm when the wind wants to cool you down while the neck and arm holes are snug to your body which keeps the wind from sneeking in.
