It doesn't matter how it happens, but it happens. You get wet unexpectedly when you are out hunting. Maybe you slipped crossing the creek and half your arm is now soaked, or maybe you are moving through the timber as the sun melts snow high in the branches above, showering you slowly throughout the day. Synthetic PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation with Cross Core™ technology acts like down insulation, but unlike down, it will hold in your heat even when it's wet. That's a critical feature when you're five miles from the truck, or out for an extended multi-day backcountry hunt.
The Kelvin AeroLite Jacket Fit: The AeroLite is a Standard Fit, designed to be used in a larger system of layering for more versatility from early to late season conditions.

Here's why SITKA made the Kelvin AeroLite Jacket
SITKA realized that traditional down puffy jackets had certain drawbacks; while warm and packable, they quickly become useless dead weight in your pack if they get wet. Their goal was to create a versatile synthetic insulation that will keep you warm while standing up to mountain environments, which usually involve moisture in some form, all in a lightweight, compressible package that doesn’t sacrifice movement or breathability.
