GORETM OPTIFADETM Concealment Elevated II camo pattern
GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Elevated II:
Specifically designed for whitetail hunters in an elevated position. Its macro and micro pattern configurations echo the higher contrast of bright sky against the shaded underside of foliage while allowing hunters to extend their season as the leaves change. It’s designed for engagement ranges of 80 yards or less and keeps the hunter undetectable at 15 feet up in a tree stand.
I was in question of getting Bibs until I wore them. There is nothing I don't like about them. Really good zippers which is awesome since the legs zip up all the way. The two way zipper in front (top and bottom) is important. They fit great and are very comfortable. The straps are simple and effective. Just a simple hook into multiple pockets on the strap for adjustment.
I own many pieces of Sitka gear and this is by far the most invaluable item that I own. You will not find a more versatile pair of bibs anywhere. I am extremely cold natured, but with proper layering these bibs will get me through anything. They are so lightweight and pack up perfectly. Sitka gear is so nice and is a true luxury to own, but this is one piece of gear that every whitetail hunter actually needs.
These are the warmest pair of bibs I have ever owned. Wind proof and water resistant with tons of pocket space. The hip zips make it easy for putting on in the stand or venting heat if you wear them into the stand. Im 5'10 195 and I wear a large. they fit very well and are extremely flexible. Perfect bibs for the 30's.
Excellent pair of bibs! Wore them for the first time in a late December white tail hunt. Chilly mornings and warm afternoons. They worked great for both with a mid level base layer for the am and just a regular pair of pants underneath in the pm. The reason I am giving them only 4 stars is bc of how light the pattern is. It almost looks like they are only meant for Midwest or snowy whitetail hunts. Love the digital patterns, but again, very light pattern. Not how the picture looks.
As others have stated, Stratus bibs are top shelf material and quality is superb. When I was researching which pants/bibs to get, I couldn't find any first hand accounts about length/inseam (other than the standard sizing chart which says 32" for a Large) on the Sitka website or any other retailers website. I'm 6'4" and 195lb and was worried about ordering these in a Large since a Large Tall isn't offered. The bib straps have 9 different loops in which to hook the strap latch into so it is highly adjustable. Bottom line, the bib length was perfect in the tallest setting and would effectively call it a 34" inseam (max). If I was any taller, it would start to get a little short. Great product!
Bought these to use in the late season and ended up wearing them almost every day. These are great at stopping the wind and are very warm and quiet. I will say if you plan on wearing these without a pant underneath you will get cold, that membrane stops the wind but it’s in insulated so it gets cold. I wore it with 2 light thermal layers and the timberline pant and these kept me warm in single digit temps. Highly recommend to late season archery/tree stand hunters and to those who are just looking for a bib to keep the chill off of most of them on those days during the cold snap of the Rut. 9/10 because of having to wear another pant underneath but other than that great product highly recommend them.
