Heading into the backcountry, weight and packability are always top concerns for gear. Sitka’s Vapor SD Jacket compresses small and weighs so little it’s easy to forget tucked in the corner of the bird vest. But weather in the mountains can be unpredictable and unforgiving and when the skies open up and the sleet starts the Vapor can be a lifesaver.
The GORE-TEX® SHAKEDRY™ Technology is both windproof and waterproof with nothing added to absorb moisture. And the cuffs and hood are Lycra bound to form fit, keeping in core heat and sealing out drafts. This is a minimalist jacket that is purpose built, and it’s great at that one job — keeping you dry — while staying inconspicuous when not needed – $299.
