At a mere 12.7oz. in a Medium, the Dewpoint is our lightest and most packable rain jacket. It is built uncompromisingly for ounce-counting backcountry hunters who rely on their rain gear to keep them safe in icy mountain rains far from the road. We worked with the scientists at W.L. Gore to develop a new three-layer, extremely light GORE-TEX® Fabric with one of the highest abrasion resistance ratings in our rain gear line. Built with microtaped and laser cut seams, it is 100% waterproof and highly breathable for moving fast in inclement weather. The innovative face fabric, a 20 Denier stretch woven nylon mini ripstop, bestows a stretchability that was previously impossible in waterproof garments.
By design, we kept features to a minimum. All zippers are welded and watertight. The full front zipper makes for easy on and off as conditions change. Deep pit zips mesh seamlessly with the hand pocket zippers. This eliminates the redundancy of separate zippers and cuts down even further on weight and bulk. An articulated, four-panel hood fits snugly around your head and moves with you as you turn, maximizing visibility. The zippered hand pockets and chest pocket cache your minimal necessities. The Dewpoint Jacket packs down and stuffs into its own chest pocket, conserving precious pack volume.

Great jacket. Keep it in the pack always, as many have mentioned. Use it as intended and you'll have no issues. Used the Dew Point set for several years now and would highly recommend for back country mountain hunting.

This jacket is awesome. I'm 5'10", 160 lbs and a medium fits great. First, the arms in the jacket have incredible range of motion. I can move my arms in all directions without the torso part of the jacket moving. The hood is deep and allows for a clear runoff of water. The hood has a back cinch, and cinches on the right and left sides. The waist also has two cinches. When reading about this jacket, I was hesitant to make the purchase knowing that the pit zips mesh with the hand pockets. After getting the jacket, this didn't turn out to be a problem at all. Both the hand pockets and chest pocket are pretty deep. The jacket is very lightweight and with stretchy ripstop Gore-Tex fabric, it performs exceptionally well in all types of precipitation. With a sufficient base layer, this jacket will retain heat well enough to be worn in mild winter conditions. Overall, an excellently constructed and superbly performing Sitka product.

This has been the perfect September and October jacket when temps are still warm but thunderstorms are hitting. I have sat through torrential down pours in the Greys River area, big thunderstorms in New Mexico, and a weeks worth of rain on the Oregon coast and this system has performed perfectly for three years.

As a photographer, I often use a folding kayak to access remote wilderness locations. My Dewpoint Jacket and Dewpoint Pants are always with me. I have (2) pair (solid and camo), and accidentally brought both of them with me on a 9-day venture into the Russell Fjord Wilderness, near Yakutat, Alaska. I'm glad I did. I got caught inseries of late-summer rainstorms and showers that lasted for nearly four days. And it got cold...down into the upper 40's during the day. Since I had both sets of rain gear with me, I thought "What the heck, I might as well try wearing both sets." Worked like a charm. The rain gear is Gore-Tex,and it breathes really well. But the air trapped between the layers warmed up enough to add an extra layer of "insulation." And that warm air trapped between layers kept me nice and toasty on a miserable 41-mile paddle out, over the course of two days.It was an unconventional layering system, but it worked exceptionally well. And since the Dewpoint Jacket and Pants pack down so small, I now consider TWO DEWPOINT LAYERS as part of my standard kit.

There is no better water proof shell out there. I was caught in a crazy downpour on a deer hunt in Utah with my dad and brother. Their rain gear couldn't keep the water out very well while my inner layers stayed completely dry because of this jacket and pants. With the weight and funcionality of this stuff it's hard to beat.
