The Science of Concealment
GORE OPTIFADE Concealment Elevated II is designed for whitetail hunters in an elevated position. Its macro and micro pattern configurations echo the higher contrast of bright sky against the shaded underside of foliage while allowing hunters to extend their season as the leaves change. It's designed for engagement ranges of 80 yards or less and keeps the hunter undetectable at 15 feet up in a tree stand.
GORE-TEX Product Technology
Garments engineered with GORE-TEX fabrics are durably waterproof andwindproof and very breathable — guaranteed. They provide reliable weather protection and maximized comfort in all weather conditions. Excellent management of perspiration leads to optimized body-heat regulation. No post activity chill. No cooling off due to wind chill. Each square inch of a GORE-TEX membrane contains 9 billion pores. Each microscopic hole is 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, making it impossible for rain, snow and sleet to pass through. While each pore of a GORE-TEX membrane is smaller than a water droplet, each is 700 times larger than a water vapor molecule. This is what enables GORE-TEX fabric to breathe so that sweat vapor can escape, keeping you dry from the inside—the ideal solution for hunters looking for broad weather protection and style.
