Sitka Gear Vows To Keep Your Optics Safe

The Bino Bivy Gives Hunters a Convenient and Effective Option For Their Optics

NAPA, CA. Sitka Gear, has introduced the Bino Bivy in its GORETM OPTIFADETM Concealment Open Country pattern. There is no doubt that a hunter’s optics are one of the most important accessories in their arsenal. With the introduction of the Bino Bivy, hunters now have an effective option to protect their optics. A lightweight mesh harness system, handy accessory pockets, silent magnetic closures and DWR soft shell fabric make the Bino Bivy the ultimate in padded optic protection.

Sitka Gear’s top-quality products feature the most scientifically advanced visual concealment pattern ever to hit the market – GORETM OPTIFADETM Concealment, the first-ever concealment based on the science of animal vision. The unique micro-pattern considers the way a deer or other ungulate perceives color, the ratio of positive to negative space and other visual elements to create an effect that allows the hunter to blend with the animal’s perception of the environment. The macro-pattern breaks up the symmetry of the human body so that if a hunter is detected, the animal will not be able to identify the hunter as a predator.

Bino Bivy
● Soft Shell with DWR finish
● Water Resistant
● GORETM OPTIFADETM Open Country Concealment pattern
● Suggested Retail Price $99

I'm not sure if you are using

I'm not sure if you are using this product or just really like the looks of it as the post is kind of like an advertisement. it does sound like a very good product though and I know they make good stuff.

It sounds very similar to my badlands system except for the addition of gore tex to keep them dry no matter what. If I was in the market for something I would check them out but I just got the badlands and have barely had a chance to use it yet.

Thanks for the product notice though.

Sitka Gear

OK...I gotta call foul.  Funny how every one of MN Bow Shooter's 11 posts to date has been a press release for a commercial product.

Regardless of his post Im have to say this....while Sitka doesmake some nice stuff.  they are way top proud of it.  I do not know alot of blue collar hunters that are gonna pay that much for clothing and other gear.  I have bought some other gear that does not even come close to their prices..and it worked awesome.  I use standar bino harness and have yet to have my Burris binos damaged.

Sitka Gear

I hear you on the Sitka gear.  Maybe it's great.  But in my humble opinion it looked like it'd be prone to tear easily, and for the life of me I couldn't understand why it was so highly priced.  It'd be cheaper to hunt in formalwear.

I can't help but think about the four years I lived in Japan.  Things like car seats and kids school backpacks were outrageously priced...even though there was nothing exceptional in their construction.  It was all because the Japanese believed it was important to outfit their children well, so obviously it was important to spend as much as possible on such things...you can't send your kid to school in a cheap backpack.  You see the same thing in certain aspects of the fashion industry here...if a shirt cost $15, nobody would buy it.  But if you jack up the price to $89.95, they fly off the shelves.

Hunters are just as bad when it comes to such things.  There's a lot of stuff out there that's priced way higher than it needs to be solely because they know a lot of hunters define quality in terms of how much you spend on something.

I have not looked at the

I have not looked at the Sitka product so can't comment on it's value, but sometimes stuff is worth a bit more. I love my badlands binocular case and it is far more comfortable than anything else I have used. Not as expensive as the one in this post but very well worth what it cost. And I'm very tight with my money buying almost everything on clearance or not at all.lol
