EP. 351: Sitka Gear Intercept Collection | Core Merino | Merino vs Synthetic Layers

Today I’m joined by my buddy Chris Derrick. Anytime Chris is on you can count on two things…A season is just about to open. And Sitka Gear has recently dropped brand new kit advancing their already bullet proof systems. Over time Sitka has continued to evolve their systems including different applications of Merino Wool. As awesome as Merino wool is for base layers, in its natural form it may not be the best material for outer layers until now. As always Sitka delivering on the needs of the hunter with in-field usability, stealth, and a new approach to merino able to withstand the abuse of grueling hunts season after season …hope you all dig the session it as much as I did.
