Sitka Gear Shows Off ESW Series for Early Season Whitetail Hunting

OSG's Michael Bane sits down with Sitka Gear's Chris Derrick to take a look at a couple products from the Bozeman, Mont. company's new Early Season Whitetail (ESW) line of products, gear designed to provide some relief for earlier season hunters targeting whitetails during the warmer months of the season.


Derrick begins with Sitka Gear's ESW Shirt. This new shirt is made of lightweight, sweat-wicking materials designed to keep hunters cool when temperatures rise out in the field. The shirt is equipped with mesh paneling to help provide airflow, along with quiet-snap buttons.


Next, Derrick shows us the ESW Pants, which provide the same airflow and comfort as the shirt does, but also includes multiple, strategically placed pockets.

Both ESW items are durable enough for hunters to move around in out in the whitetail woods, yet are also light enough to fight off the day's heat and sweat.
