The Hudson Jacket addresses late season ice coated waters with ease. The combination of GORE-TEX® laminate protection and reliable Primaloft® insulation make the Hudson a must for the discerning late season waterfowler.
- GORE-TEX® Fabric
- Polyester Weave
- 2 Chest and Shell Pockets
- Magnetic Tuck Away Call Pockets
- Functional Hood
- Articulated Patterning
- Water Sealing Cuffs
- 133 g/m2 PrimaLoft® Sport Insulation in torso
- Lofted Micro Check Fleece Insulation in lower arms
The Hudson Insulated Jacket is engineered for extended exposure to wet and frigid conditions. The GORE-TEX® Hardshell is 100% waterproof and breathable, 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 check fleece to trap additional body heat where you need it, while reducing bulk for freedom of movement.
It is fit to accommodate further insulation layers like the Kelvin and Duck Oven Jackets for when arctic fronts send ducks in search of food and most hunters in search of fireplaces. All zippers are welded and watertight. Two chest pockets, two shell pockets and two magnetic tuck-away call pockets keep you organized and focused on the sky. The fully adjustable hood rotates and swivels with you, so there’s no impediment to your vision. The cuffs have watertight gaskets that adjust to fit your wrist, so you can submerge your hand momentarily while working with deeks without getting water up the sleeve.

Perfect. Hood moves with your head without affecting your vision, so much so you often forget its there (except you don’t feel the wind/rain/sleet). I have hunted in temps ranging from 10-50 degrees in this coat, and it performs in a league of its own. Never once even thought about heading in early due to being cold (and I HATE being cold). You truly get what you pay for. I am completely sold on this piece of gear, and everything else I have made by Sitka. Why buy a $250 coat made by anybody else and have to replace every couple of years? Buy once, cry once.

I have never gotten more use out of a single piece of hunting clothing. We hunted in 28 degrees with a 20 mph wind (cold for Texas rice prairie) and with this, a light fleece and base layer I was toasty on the entire boat ride and hunt. People I have hunted with have questioned my supposed lack of insulation until I was the only warm one with half of the bulk. The Gore-Tex and Primaloft combo are unmatched.

I swear if you owned this jacket on the first day you went Waterfowl hunting, you wouldn’t know what the rest of us that have for years dealt with substandard equipment have known. That is, if you want to hunt waterfowl, get used to being wet and cold. This jacket simply ends that maxim. You will be warm. You will be dry. And I mean in the most wicked rains and coldest subzero blizzards, this jacket will keep you comfortable. I was one of the few that had some issues with the main zipper catching the rain flap When zipping it down, but Sitka remedied that issue free of charge by sending it to Rainy Pass for a tune up. Now it works flawlessly. Once again, with Sitka, you won’t have to worry about spending your hard earned dollars on their gear. It will stand up or they will stand behind it.

I admit that I had a great start with this jacket. I bought it when it first came out and it worked very well. Warm beyond belief. I will admit after several years of use, I had zipper issues with it getting caught on flap every the I would unzip it. Sitka took it back on warranty and corrected the issue with updating the flap behind the zipper with a cordura strip. Now it is back to working flawlessly. I am told all new Hudson’s have this update already. Can’t beat Sitkas service. This jacket will keep you warm and dry into the coldest months. In fact I haven’t needed much layering underneath until it reaches -10 and below. Perfect matches with any of Sitkas layering jackets, hoodies, and vests. And it is trimmer and less bulky than the boreal in my opinion. Which is a great jacket in it own right.

If you’re looking for a jacket that can do it all, this is it. You might feel that the price is a little much but once you put it to the test you’ll be glad you made the purchase. This jacket can take on the wind and water and you’ll be 100% guaranteed dry. I was just hunting in 30 degree weather with 30-40mph wind as well as a monsoon and I was comfortable and dry. Not to mention, I was warm too. The only piece I was wearing under the Hudson was the mid weight 1/4 zip and couldn’t believe it. If you’re on the fence about this piece of equipment, go ahead and pull the trigger, you won’t regret it.
