Updated SITKA Jetstream Collection just launched!
Eventually, all pieces of gear get an upgrade. If you’ve followed me for years, you know that SITKA’s Jetstream Jacket was always a staple on all my late-season hunts. That softshell flat out performed perfectly when I needed it to, and it was always my go-to layer.
And today, SITKA has just released the newly updated for 2022 Jetstream Jacket and Vest!
So how did they take an already top-of-the-line piece and update it?
- New materials
- More comfortable
- The cut fits and moves better
- Taped seams for added weather protection
- Less bulk
The Jetstream Collection has been strategically redesigned for 2022. It still boasts its amazing 100% windproof Gore-Tex Infinium Windstopper technology. Along with a more relaxed fit, including the micro-grid fleece baker that increases mobility, heat retention, and layering option. Plus, the Jetstream Collection uses 100% recycled polyester face fabric.
Taped seams provide added weather protection for those grueling hunts. And a big one, they have also reduced bulk compared to the older design. A big win in my eyes!
I recently received the updated Jetstream Jacket, and I'll say with 100% confidence that everything I loved about the collection stayed right in line with what worked before, with just a few tweaks to somehow make this jacket even better! I guarantee this jacket will see a ton of use this fall when the temperatures drop.
“We wanted to keep the proven and trusted DNA of the original Jetstream but bring a refined construction, fit and increased performance, making it one of the most versatile collections
offered by Sitka,” said John Barklow, SITKA’s Big Game Product Manager. “We took an already exceptional line of products and make them even better.”
In keeping with the Jetstream tradition, this updated design still has a DWR finish to shed moisture and pit zips to dump heat when pushing up the mountains.
The new Jetstream Collection is available in both men’s and women’s jacket and a men's and women's vest.
