The Stratus Vest is part of our most versatile whitetail system, pulling double duty as either an insulating mid layer or core-warming outer. 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 vest.
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.
