August 21, 2008 (Napa, Calif.)- Sitka, designers and manufacturer's of performance hunting gear and apparel, announced their 90% Series Jacket and Pants Field & Stream's Best of the Best Award in the hunting outerwear category for 2008. Each year the magazine's editors rigorously field test hundreds of pieces of gear for several months. The judging criterion includes the significance of the innovation, the quality of the design, the originality of thought, the ambition and scope of the project, and the value it brings to hunters.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by Field & Stream for the second year in a row,” states Sitka President and Co-owner, Jonathan Hart. “When Jason Hairston and I started Sitka in 2005, our goal was to design the best hunting gear possible. We wanted to think out-of-the-box. Sitka was the first to bring performance fabric technologies to the hunting market. These new fabrics keep hunters dry and comfortable in a wide range of weather conditions. That is where we got the name for this series. Ninety percent of the time this is the only jacket and pant you will need.”

In 2008, Sitka fully overhauled and upgraded its 90% Series with all new fabrics, trims, and cuts to make it the most durable and versatile jacket and pant in the Sitka line. The improvement lies in the new soft shell fabric, which features two-way stretch to optimize comfort and tear resistance in the field. The Sitka 90% soft shell fabric blocks 95 percent of wind, yet it maintains the highest level of breathability possible. Additionally, the new fabric is lighter weight and has improved wicking ability.

Sitka's attention to detail is evident throughout the 90% Series. Fully articulated elbows and knees provide a trimmer and sleeker design with enhanced fit and range of motion. Other features include generous pit-zips, TPU zipper pulls and a one-hand waist draw for quick adjustments even while wearing gloves. The pants include easy access thigh pockets, while the jacket has vertical zippered chest pockets reinforced with water-resistant, durable Melco tape. The 90% Pants come with removable built-in suspenders for a great fit even on the most arduous climbs.

Complete details on the Field & Stream Best of the Best Awards can be found in the September 2008 Field & Stream issue.
