Why We Made This
Waterfowl hunters have been looking for a jacket that they can build a system around. One that allows freedom of movement, is layerable and provides ultimate protection from a variety of late-season conditions and weather. Our design was focused on using a GORE-TEX® 3-layer laminate face with GORE-TEX® with STRETCH technology in the shoulder and neck. Totally windproof, waterproof and breathable–plus the ability for unrestricted movement in tight spaces–makes this a lethal combination of technologies. For insulation, we chose PrimaLoft® Gold to ensure heat where it counts. We added a fully adjustable hood that delivers complete weather protection without impeding field of vision. Technical features include a sculpted hood for visibility, vertical-zip chest pockets for secure storage, high hand-warmer pockets, bellowed shell pockets and a removable call drop lanyard; and adjustable water-sealing cuffs keep your arms warm and dry when setting or retrieving.
Features & Benefits
Sculpted Hood for Visibility
The fully adjustable hood rotates and swivels with you, offering complete weather protection without impeding your vision.
High Hand Warmer Pockets, 2 Chest and Shell Pockets
Two chest pockets, two shell pockets and two magnetic tuck-away call pockets keep you organized and focused on the sky.
Bellowed Shell Pockets
The bellowed pockets easily accommodate a box of shot shells but lay flat when empty. A velcro closure ensures safe storage, and a magnetic flap stays open for easy reloading.
The cuffs have watertight gaskets that adjust to fit your wrist, so you can submerge your hand momentarily while setting or retrieving deeks without getting water up the sleeve.
GORE-TEX® with STRETCH Technology
Completely waterproof and breathable, the shell features a rugged GORE-TEX® laminate combined with GORE-TEX® with STRETCH Technology mapped to facilitate absolute freedom of motion when shooting in tight quarters, completely sealing out moisture and wind to form a microclimate around your body. Inside the microclimate, we’ve built in body-mapped Primaloft® insulation and micro-grid check fleece to trap additional body heat where you need it, while reducing bulk for total freedom of movement.
