All-new Early Season Whitetail System from SITKA Gear Now Available In-Store and Online

BOZEMAN, Mont. (July 23, 2018) – SITKA Gear today announced that its all-new lightweight and breathable Early Season Whitetail (ESW) system is now available through leading retailers and on the brand’s website, at  

Optimized for ventilation and stealth in warm weather, the ESW system is offered in the GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Elevated II™ pattern and features lightweight, 4-way stretch polyester fabric with mesh ventilation and silent snaps for comfort, breathablility and reduced noise. In addition, the entire ESW series is treated with Polygiene® odor control technology.  

“For the early season, it was important to design something that not only allows for quiet movement in the stand, but also maximizes breathability and odor control,” said Chris Derrick, SITKA Gear’s Whitetail Product Manager. “In addition to lightweight fabrics and body mapped mesh ventilation, we add Polygiene® to prevent the build-up of odor on the garments, significantly reducing the odor profile.” 

Like all SITKA systems, the ESW system is designed for layering. It can be worn on its own in the heat or easily integrated with additonal layers as temperatures cool. Streamlined cuts allow users to add insulation over the top of ESW gear without impacting range of motion. 

The ESW system includes the ESW Pant ($149 MSRP); ESW Shirt ($129 MSRP); ESW Glove ($79 MSRP); and ESW Hat ($30 MSRP). Visit to learn more.
