Let’s be real: For a lot of us modern big game hunters, gear is now a big part of our hunting. From binoculars to a GPS to range finders and beyond, we depend on gear, we love our gear, and we ultimately carry our gear over the mountain and through the woods.
With the need for gear, we also have the need to access it easily without being restricted. Enter the Sitka Ascent Vest. I’ll be honest: I never thought I’d wear a vest when hunting. However, this vest is so intelligently designed, I don’t think I’ll ever go back.
Living and hunting in the West, big game hunting demands a great deal of activity. Up and down canyons, through brush, and so on, hunting in the West is every bit of an endurance sport. And when it matters most, we need to access gear easily. Not only does the Sitka Ascent Vest allow easy access, it takes things up a level.
First, this piece is so lightweight and comfortable, it almost doesn’t feel like you are wearing something extra. In fact, it is so minimalist and low profile, that it often only feels like a very minor addition to a jacket or shirt. This is in part due to its mesh lining and breathable material.
Like many Sitka products, the vest features Polygiene Odor Control Technology and has a stretchy material that helps with mobility. Among the many other features that stand out, wiring at the zipper in the pockets keeps pockets open when taking things in and out. A small little feature that I love!
The Sitka Ascent Vest is a great addition to my hunting performance wear. More smart design for hunting from Sitka.
