SITKA Gear

Founded in 2005, SITKA® Gear was an idea spawned by necessity. Like many stories, this one started out as an epic journey that culminated with a clear vision. After 3000 vertical feet in the dark, with intermittent snow flurries and driving sleet, the morning climb ended behind a gnarled White Bark Pine to get some reprieve from the elements and a little food in the bellies. Cold and wet with sweat from that climb, it was more than obvious that discomfort like this was unnecessary. So, on that September morning, at timberline, surrounded by bugling bulls, the vision that became Sitka was realized. Drawing on strong backgrounds in the climbing, mountaineering, and general head strong assaults of the backcountry, expertise and experience were focused on bridging the gaps that existed between these endeavors. Sitka's driving goal is to not only bridge the technology gaps that existed from a fabric, construction, and product form perspective, but to fully immerse ourselves in driving new technologies and solutions for the modern outdoorsman. Our roots are in the mountains, but our solutions are global and the Dark Continent is no exception. Our vision is to redefine the persona of the hunter by being the most influential and most respected technical hunting and lifestyle clothing manufacturer and marketer in the world.

We could say that we simply make the best high-performance system of hunting clothes on the market, but it's more than just quality It's a philosophy: Turning Clothing Into Gear!
