Sitka Gear – Mountain Jacket OPTIFADE Subalpine
Streamlined to move like the wind while standing strong against it, our Mountain Jacket defies gravity and graupel alike. Imperceptibly light and minimal in bulk, it nearly disappears in your pack. Once deployed, the effects of its seam-taped WINDSTOPPER® construction are impossible to ignore.
– High Gauge Nylon with Soft Knit Backer
– 2-Way Stretch Nylon
– Zippered Mesh Hand Pockets
– Zippered Mesh Chest Pocket
– WINDSTOPPER® Laminate
The Mountain Jacket stands strong against the mid to late-season chill, with a fully taped WINDSTOPPER® membrane and a light nylon shell that prevents convective heat loss. The minimalist design features low bulk seams to prevent any chafe points, and two hand pockets and a zippered chest pocket to keep those small necessities accessible and secure.
The lightweight nylon face fabric is backed with soft knit, so it can be worn over a base layer or under heavier insulation. The perfect complement to the ever-popular Mountain Pant, the Mountain Jacket’s minimalist design boasts maximum versatility.
