New Camo From Sitka: Optifade Marsh Pattern
John Taranto explains how this new waterfowl-specific camo pattern from Sitka works from a bird's eye view.
Hmmm. A camo waterfowl coat with a prominent red manufacturer's label on the front? Ooops. Have to admit I really don't care for the fish-scale look. And I wouldn't want a duck hunting coat that didn't have a covering flap over the zipper. In a driving rainstorm water will go right through and exposed zipper. Good luck to Sitka selling this product. I think they'll need it.
Perhaps from their extensive research they found that from a 45 degree angle, waterfowl can't see red! ;)
Sitka make some pretty high performance raingear, so I'm sure they have the zipper figured out. There are waders with zippers, so why does it need a fly? Just sayin'.
Hmmm. Thanks for the info WAM. I was not aware that waders were being made with full-length front zippers. Simms has a couple of models. I would be curious to see how they managed that.
That is even FUGLIER than my old BDUs! Camo is overrated.
I wear Forest Green or Carhart
Moishe, obviously you are not a duck hunter.
Sitka makes some of the best hunting clothing on the market today because of the amount of research and field testing they put into it. If you think that they didn't test these patterns in hunting situations and that a penny sized logo will spook ducks then you're off your rocker.
