The Stratus Jacket is part of our most versatile whitetail system. We’ve sandwiched the GORE® WINDSTOPPER® membrane between a wet-printed Micro-Fleece shell and a micro grid fleece backer, creating the quietest 100% windproof jacket. On its own, the Stratus can take you into the mid-season, and since it’s fitted for insulation underlayering, you can make it your go-to shell well into November.
As the weather begins to change, this system adapts with breathable next-to-skin layers and insulation options constructed to hold in warmth or vent as needed while keeping the hunter warm, dry, agile and alert.

Owning the Preseason
A good coach once told me that “being lucky” is actually just being prepared. It was a valuable lesson and one that also applies to the backcountry. Now is the time to prepare with a purpose, not the week before the season starts.
