In September of 2012, we did a video product review on the shell pieces for the new Sitka Waterfowl Line. This line has set a new standard for clothing in the waterfowl industry. It is durable, provides great freedom of movement, and most importantly, provides unsurpassed warmth for all occasions.
This new line doesn’t contain just shell pieces, but is an entire layering system, which Sitka is known for. The entire system is developed to fit every niche’ for the hard core waterfowler. The system wouldn’t be complete without a full line of accessories to round out the package. Accessories include items like hats, caps, beanie’s, balaclava’s, gloves, mitts, and packs.
This new line has items for those early season waterfowl days to those extreme cold January mornings and everything in between. There’s no reason to ever be cold again with the full line of Sitka Waterfowl Gear.
Pantanal Cap has all the protection of GoreTex laminate which means it is very breathable while still providing world class waterproof protection. The Pantanal Cap combined with a Dakota Beanie is a great recipe for just about any hunt.
Hudson Lobster Mit is a hybrid design. It has the functionality of a glove, but the warmth of a gauntlet style mitt. It is stuffed full of Primaloft insulation and paired with Gore-Tex laminate which makes it the perfect choice for those extreme weather days.
Pantanal Glove is a great all season glove. It has a low loft fleece liner, Gore-Tex laminate and DWR treated stretch woven face and durable leather palms. This is one of my favorite gloves in the Sitka line.
Rounding out the line of accessories is half choke and full choke packs. These packs were designed after numerous field based conversations from professional waterfowlers on what they needed in a pack. Evaluating these needs and putting them together in a functional pack which is clean in design yet easy to access your gear was the plan. This has been accomplished in both the half choke and full choke packs. There are ample pockets in each, yet they don’t have more pockets than you will ever use and most importantly, you won’t be looking for something in one of those hidden pockets that you don’t find until long after it isn’t needed. Each pack has handles on the top as well as the side of the pack which provides a quick and easy place to grab if you need to relocate quickly. Both packs are in the same great Marsh pattern which will melt away into almost any surrounding. The half choke is a 1200 cubic inch pack and the full choke is 1700 cubic inches. Both have a durable water repellent finish and are sure to give you years of great service.
