Introducing the lightest weight series we’ve ever created and our latest concealment, GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Subalpine. Comprised of 6 technical products all weighing in under 12 ounces, the Ascent Series is your go-to system for the early season.
THE ONLY DIGITAL CONCEALMENT PATTERN BASED ON ANIMAL VISION AND ENGINEERED TO OPTICALLY FADE YOU INTO YOUR SURROUNDINGS.
GORE™ OPTIFADE™ breaks the mold by using a digitally rendered blend of micro and macro patterns to fool animal vision. Created by a renowned team of camouflage and animal vision experts, GORE OPTIFADE Concealment takes into account how elk and mule deer see when looking through vegetated terrain. The end result: a pattern that features optimized contrast through detailed shading and colorization. Simply put, a camo that allows you to effortlessly blend into your surroundings.
GORE OPTIFADE Subalpine is designed specifically for stalking and ambushing ungulates from ground level in vegetated terrain and is optimized for engagement ranges of 50 yards and less.

Subalpine is a top-to-bottom overhaul of already advanced gear.

Subalpine moves, breathes, performs and functions together better than any other SITKA system I’ve worn. - Athlete // Adam Foss
