Sitka Kelvin Down Hoody - Open Country

The Kelvin Down Hoody brings the protection of a sleeping bag in the form of a jacket to snowy mountain sessions spent glassing mountain faces.

Sitka Gear is the exclusive hunting launch partner for PrimaLoft® Down Blend technology, the world’s first hybrid insulation fusing ultra-fine synthetic fibres with water-repellent down.  The Sitka Kelvin Down Hoody offers comparable warmth in construction to 750 fill down with similar warmth-to-weight and packability characteristics. But unlike down, retains an incredible 95% of the warmth when wet. Primaloft® Down Blends dry 4x faster than untreated down, and absorb 9x less water than untreated down.  The European-based chemistry used in PrimaLoft® Down Blend is environmentally sound, using no fluorocarbons. And with EDFA Traceability, PrimaLoft® guarantees no live plucking of the down. 

As part of your Big Game system, this intense insulator is like a sleepingbag for your upper body. While your legs chew up the miles, the Kelvin Down Hoody rides neatly compressed in an included stuff sack. When you stop to hunker and glass, it contains your body heat in an envelope of goose feathers.

We’ve stuffed the Down Hoody’s baffles with half a pound of PrimaLoft® Down Blend Gold insulation. The ample cut is designed to fit over the rest of your Sitka System, with wider arms, broader shoulders, and a longer torso than our other pieces, creating a portable capsule of balmy air where you can zip in and escape the chill. Insulated hand pockets are fully wrapped with down-filled baffles to thaw your fingers. The insulated hood provides additional heat containment, built in a dropaway configuration so it won’t tug at the jacket collar when not in use. A large internal pocket stows your cold-weather necessities.

Ounce for ounce, down is warmer than any synthetic material, and with proper care, it will last a lifetime. The Down Hoody sandwiches quality down between light, rugged polyester mini ripstop fabric with a Durable Water Resistant finish.

Sitka sizing is comparable to New Zealand and Australian sizes - so if you wear a large in a work shirt a large in Sitka will generally be the right fit too. 

Order the same size in base and outer layers, the outer layer in the same size is designed to fit over the layers that are likely to be worn underneath it.
