Default Is Sitka hear worth it?

Heading to Alaska for a spot and stalk bear hunt. Been thinking about Sitka gear. Seems pretty versatile and Iím looking for that since itís a boat based hunt. But dang... the $$$!. Anyone have good/bad reviews.

Yes good stuff........only if used in the layering system. I am KUIU fan also but very tight fitting. I have about 60% of my hunting clothes in Sitka. Camofire will have lots on their website over the next 4 months.

What does it do that a basic product from Academy or Cabelas won't do?

In Texas in a tree stand or blind? Nothing.

In extreme weather from sunshine to downpour, 85 to 15, and hiking over mountains, it allows you to regulate your body temperature and stay dry. It also is easy to layer for differing weather. You can startup light in the morning when you need to hike 3 miles to a glassing spot and sweat. Then throw on more layers as needed once you're in the cold windy spot. Cotton ain't gonna cut it once it gets wet from rain or sweat. It's also extremely high quality and won't break on you and mess up your hunt. It's also much lighter weight than cheap stuff, which can mean a lot hiking in the mountains. Merino wool doesn't stink like synthetic or cotton does. So on a week long hunt you can wear the same shirt and underwear without smelling like a teenage boys locker room.

All that being said, check out First Lite and Kuiu (in that order) before you decide on Sitka. Nothing at all wrong with their gear, just a bit more expensive for essentially the same product.

I hunted Southeast Alaska for about 10 years. I hunted bears in waders. The bear in my avatar was killed wearing Simms waders and a Day One Camo fleece pullover.

You know, most of the folks that live there and hunt donít buy all that expensive clothing. Its your cash though.

Kinda like the people who live in CO, MT, and WY donít buy 28 Noslers and 300 Win Mags to elk hunt. Ask them and theyíll tell you they donít need them because all the Texas guys bring plenty of magnums to kill everything there twice over.

That being said Sitka makes some nice clothing.

I used to buy cheap camo and think it was fine and that replacing it every few years was normal. I finally got my hands on some Sitka a few years back, had some $ burning a hole in my pocket, and decided to bite the bullet. Best decision I ever made. The stuff is just flat out awesome quality. It's like they thought of everything and put it into their clothing. The fit is awesome and quality is second to none. I look at it like this...I won't need to buy a set of hunting gear for literally 15 years if not longer. It will last me that long and is an investment worth the $ IMO. The initial cost is hard to swallow but gotta think long term...

Like others said, I'd look at First Lite before you buy. It's awesome. And significantly cheaper. This sounds crazy but spend a couple weeks researching to make sure you're getting what you need. I never knew so much went into high end hunting clothing. Also, look for used stuff on rokslide and you'll save a lot.

The high end mountain gear is worth it. I strongly reccomend checking out Pnuma gear as well. It carries an unconditional lifetime warranty. Even if you tear it crossing a fence!

You are flying up to Alaska for a hunt of a lifetime. A few hundred extra on clothing will be a drop in the bucket. I have not used Sitka but I do not go cheap on clothes that can potentially keep you alive out in the cold. I would find a good wool base layer, fleece mid layer and a Gore Tex or equivalent shell.

Technically cabelas has a competitive product line

Where Sitka, firstlite, Kuiu and cabelas instinct line excel is in their waterproof breathable rain wear and quick dying layering system that has a very high warmth to weight ratio.

Can you find other stuff that’s just as good for less money, if you watch sales you can pick up some solid color mountaineering brands like mountain hardware for Less.


But do those mountaineering brands support hunting

I don't believe they will replace ( fix) it if you tear it, under warranty. They won't even cover it if you use an ozone generating devise ( ozonics, or even ozone producing clothing). If a seam fails, yes.

My take - first lite or kuiu for base layers, as they're just as good. For the outer layers Sitka is tough to beat.

Yes it’s worth it for certain hunting and terrain. I’m decked out in my profile pic. For my boat based bear hunt, I just wore my normal Texas gear but bought a lightweight rain suit from Cabela’s.

From a guy that spends at least 40 days a year in the mountains hunting, it nice but not needed. Any high end clothes will work (unless your worried about being in camo head to toe) Any good stretch hiking pant, 2 base layer merino wool shirts, 2 good socks (that your feet like), 2 sets of boxers (merino wool currently) a puffy, and a rain jack, covers me on all my western bow hunts (CO,WY,NE) Those are backpack hunts normally in the 7-10 days a shot, and thats all I bring. 99% of guys wayyyyy over pack.

With that hunt, I'd me way more worried about the rain gear!

This is true several make mountaineering clothing if youíre not stuck on camo. Most are just as expensive and some even more expensive though if you find clothes with all the same traits and materials. I have some Marmot pants I prefer for certain situations.

get a set of waders and boots that will fit properly with them on.....Alaska is one stream after another and you will be wet all day.

light camo will not survive the willows. It will be torn to shreds pretty quickly.

all else fails.....check with the guide.

You survived but now you are tainted.

I like the look and feel of all that gear. When I go to Cabelas I still walk by the stuff, touch it, try it on, etc. If I were hunting out of state I may look on Camofire or other websites for some specials.

Walk through the mountains all day in heavy bulky stuff vs Sitka or kuiu or FL and you’ll see the big difference. It’s worth it to me. Even in Texas. I stay comfortable. Everyone wants to think they are the toughest in the woods to handle cold etc. I’m there to enjoy myself. The gear helps me do that a lot more.

Same here I have mix of kuiu, Sitka, Columbia/prana/Mountain hardware, and farm to feet

I am a big fan of Sitka I don't care if poeple want to bash expensive gear. It's my choice and my money . I have also owned First Lite, Under Armour, and Kuiu. Sikta is all I have left, I sold the rest. All of my current Sitka is all the Optifade II white pattern. It may go up for sale only because I think my days of treestand hunting might be over after how poorly the recovery of a 3rd back surgery is going.

Some of it actually goes on sale though. Plus you can wear it not hunting, which is some of the reasons I switched. I'd rather wear $200 pants all year long, not just 8 weeks in fall.

All my Sitka was on sale when I bought it also


I do like being able to wear it more often even though Iíve worn out a couple shirts and a pair of pants that way so I just save the stuff for hunting if it works

Well I’ve been hunting about same time frame, you could wear brooks brothers if you are hunting from the truck. Any thing works great when you have a heater in a truck to dry cotton out.

I’ll wear synthetics that I can dry out in a sleeping bag

Always going to be haters. It has its place and it’s top quality gear. I would love to see some of these guys take thier 20lbs Texas clothing on a mountain hunt.

If you are saying it’s crap, include a hunting post above 10000 ft with your gear.

Bought a KUIU jacket this winter and it is by far the most I've spent on a piece of camo. Gotta say it's the best jacket I've ever owned and well worth the money. I'm sure Sitka is in the same ballpark, but I wish I had the stuff a long time ago!
