SHOT Show 18 – Vapour SD Jacket from Sitka Gear

Sitka Gear has introduced a new featherweight jacket called the Vapour SD, made from WL Gore’s SHAKEDRY fabric.


SHAKEDRY is a waterproof breathable fabric featuring a durable water repellant surface. It’s very thin so these garments are intended for training, rather than field use. I use a SHAKEDRY jacket from a different manufacturer as an emergency rain jacket in my daypack because it packs up into a ball the size of my fist. Water literally beads on the surface. When you take it off shake it and the water flies off. It’s dry, just like the name says.


While the jacket isn’t intended for heavy use as an outer garment, the jacket can be worn under other clothing and will still keep you dry.

Due to the material, the only color available is Black.
