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, can be layered 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. The Hudson delivers maximum mobility and comfort with insulating properties for the unrelenting wet & cold experienced on a full day waterfowl hunt.

Honestly, I figured many of these features were “gimmicks” and while they would be an actual part of the jacket, I thought they wouldn’t work as well as advertised. I was delightfully wrong. This season, while attempting to fix decoys, I got tangled in the camo net of our boat and fell in the CT river and expected to be soaked. It was about 39 degrees out and I thought I was done for the day. I bought the right fit and tightened the rubber on the sleeves and was completely dry. Nothing got in my waders or in the sleeves and I was able to hunt the whole day with no problems! I’ve even swam streams to collect ducks with no problems. My one complaint is that the magnetic pockets aren’t waterproof. I guess that should be obvious. They have drains in the bottom to let water out but that will also let water in when submerged. Got my licenses and some shells soaked, but considering they are higher than where your waders end, it’s actually a great feature. Movement feels so natural, it feels like you don’t even have a jacket on! I still prefer a balaclava to the hood, but it’s the best I’ve come across. I’ll be buying the other camo with my Christmas bonus!

I have a Hudson jacket I bought on line and I do like it. The sizing is what I have issues with. I bought a 2XL thinking I could layer under this jacket and I was wrong. I have a Drake jacket and liner that I use for late season and I thought this could be a replacement. The Drake is a XL with a shell and liner. It fits perfectly. I have a 48" chest measurement. I figured this Hudson in the 2XL would allow some layering but it does not. Can't even get a light sweatshirt under it due to the arms being so tight.

That is the only way to describe the Hudson Jacket. Waterfowl hunters never know what they may experience from mother nature on a given hunt. Especially in the upper Midwest. Once October hits, this jacket is with me on every hunt. Just this past Sunday, it began to rain about an hour after day break. Three consecutive hours of rain and I was never wet. Temps were in the upper 30's and I was warm (Hudson Jacket over layers of; Core Base Layer, Fahrenheit Vest and Gradient Hoody) and dry. The Hudson Jacket deserves to be in every waterfowl hunters arsenal!

This jacket is awesome. I hunt in the midwest where the temp can vary 40 degrees on a weekly basis. I have worn this jacket from 45 - 0 degrees and always been comfortable. I usually wear a Patagonia R1 hoodie as a base layer when its in the 30-40s but when it starts to drop i throw the gradient jacket over that and am always warm. I have quite frankly beat the crap out of this jacket over the past two years and have had no issues with the jacket and its always apart of the system when i am taking the boat up the river in the morning.

The new model is significantly improved over the original, & the fit is better, the gore-tex strech is awesome. I had a buddy that always hated on Sitka, he borrowed this jacket on a hunt (I was warm wearing the Fahrenheit jack), needless to say, like anyone else, he was immediately become sold & asked if he could buy it from me!
This jacket by itself won't keep you warm in 0 degree weather, but with the Fahrenheit vest or jacket, you will be covered in any temps!

I can’t say enough about this jacket. Insanely breathable so you can get away with a t shirt in the early season on rainy day’s in the 50’s. The gore wind stopper works like a dream making it so I was comfortable with nothing but a base-layer under in the 30’s. Throw a Dakota vest on next and you’re good in the 20’s. Wore base-layer, gradient, and then Hudson and I was toasty in -3 windchill. If you’re serious about duck hunting this is your jacket.

After having this jacket for one year I can say it is the warmest jacket I’ve ever had. The Hudson is worth every penny. Very breathable and waterproof.

This is my go to outer layer when temperatures start to drop in the Dakotas or mid/late January in Arkansas. Paired with a mid or heavy weight base layer, a Gradient hoody and the Hudson, this will keep you warm! Extra core warmth needed?, throw a Dakota vest over the gradient hoody under the Hudson to not impede with shooting ability. I've worn all layers at the same time and the ability to shoot is second to none. I've hunted waterfowl since I was 8 years old, and always struggled with staying warm with other waterfowl gear. After 30+ years, this is the "go to" and I will never go back! Sitka isn't just a brand, it's a way of life!

I purchased this jacket shortly after I moved to Alaska, knowing that harsh conditions were in my waterfowl future. This jacket has performed flawlessly in around 50+ hunts to date involving plenty of brush busting, layout boats and extended trips. Having worn this jacket in everything from the mid 50s to teen temps (w/ layers) I am nothing short of impressed. The jacket layout is super nice, everything from where the lanyard placements are located, to the pockets, the jacket cut, and the articulating hood allow you to be more comfortable in the field. (I am 5'8 190 and purchased a large- great fit)

I first ordered the Wading jacket because I would rather be able to layer up and use a lighter jacket to be more versatile. I'm 5'10", 190lbs and a Large in the wading jacket was too small. With a fleece jacket underneath, it was very restrictive for shouldering a shotgun. I found a local store that had both the Hudson and Wading jacket. Once I tried them both on, I discovered that the Hudson works for me in a Large because of the stretch material on the back of the shoulders. I would need an XL in the Wading jacket. I was torn on which one to get, but went with the Hudson in the end. In most cases my use will be for colder weather. I've only used the Hudson once in 30MPH North winds and raining. It's pretty awesome. Definitely recommend either jacket, just try them on with your layers to make sure you get the right fight before your purchase.

This coat has made life so easy in the blind and by the river. I looked at and tried on a lot of drake coats, tried this coat on and immediately paid the extra money for the quality. I would buy this coat again tomorrow immediately.

5’10”, 175, for the Large. I wore a T-shirt under it no problem into the mid 30’s. Light long sleeve shirt into the 20’s without getting cold.

One thing I would change is a second inside coat pocket. Otherwise this thing is amazing.

1) Customer service: I bought this coat locally in XL, but had to return it. I'm 6'4" so really needed an XLT, but there were none to be found. I called customer service only to learn that there were none available in XLT. 10 minutes later, the same customer service rep called me back and said she found one for me, but not in her warehouse. She took the time to find a retailer, Macs Prairie Wings, that had them in stock( they had only 1). I ordered it and received the next day. THAT"S what I call customer service!

2) The jacket: It fits perfectly. I'm 6'4" and 245 lbs. Enough room for layering underneath, but not too much. The shoulders and back do not bind when shouldering your shooting in a t shirt. Temp was only in high 30's...not exactly frigid...but it proved to be completely comfortable even on the 40 minute boat ride at 4:45am. The hand warmer pockets are particularly well placed. They're in a perfect, usable location, not too high like other brands I have owned. Of course, the sealed cuffs and drawstring at the waist and hood keep all the nastiness out. I can't thin k of a thing I don't like. It's just a great jacket worth its price. I liked it so much, I have a pair of Hudson Bibs on the way.

I also noted that, unlike a couple of years ago, the professional guides down here are wearing more and more Sitka gear. Sitka gear is catching on down here.

Sitka’s quality is second-to-none. This jacket is made of great materials and should last a long time. This jacket is a great balance between warmth and weight.

I look forward to using this jacket for years to come, and I plan to purchase some other gear in the coming months.

In the past, we needed to purchase new Jackets for our employees once per season. We are hard on our gear whether we are hunting or working, our gear is put through rigorous conditions all season long. Once we started wearing Sitka Gear, our guys stayed warm, dry, and healthy far more than when we used competitive products in the past. The old gear that barely lasted one season has now been replaced by far superior, Sitka Gear, that is taking care of us for three to four seasons while keeping us much more comfortable.

This jacket feels amazing. I am 6' 1" and about 180lbs, and the large fits great. The sizing chart doesn't help much when trying to decide which size to get, so I tried on several sizes before purchasing. I would recommend trying on a couple different sizes before buying, but from what I can tell, since these jackets are standard fit, they run more true to size than the older model hudson jacket. Overall, the jacket is amazing. It is pretty lightweight and not very bulky. Also, shouldering your shotgun is easy, since the jacket is not constricting at all. Although it is pretty pricey, this jacket is worth every penny, and I would definitely recommend buying it.

This is the finest product I have ever purchased in my life. You will not be disappointed. Dry, warm and comfortable is a great way to be while standing in the rain, snow and anything the great outdoors cooks up. I am a BIG Sitka fan and have not met its equal. If the price seems high to you, it won't after you realize the quality that you are holding. Every piece of Sitka gear I own is worth every penny it cost me.

I live in Minnesota and this turned into my goto winter jacket. I have worn it at 20 below zero and at 50 degrees above. In the rain, snow or sun it is my favorite jacket I own. Period!
