XTR Elite Hunter Jacket

May 09, 2016

The XTR Elite Hunter Jacket is the go to jacket for the most extreme conditions. It  was built with open-tops, snow storms and sever rain in mind. The Elite Hunter is perfectly suited to hunting Bull Tahr on the rugged tops of the Southern Alps as well as withstanding the intense rain during the West Coast Roar.

Although it offers the same highest-level waterproof and breathability rating as the other XTR garments, the difference lies in the extremely durable outer layer. The Extreme Hunter is the toughest Jacket in the XTR range but isn’t quite as quiet as the others in thick bush. However, after a day of constant downpour, one shake of the Jacket back at the hut, and it’s dry.

The Elite Hunter has been developed using the most advanced technology to improve not only its packability and weight, but most importantly the quality of the waterproof membrane.

It combines a great level of durability and puncture resistance with unmatched protection against the elements. When a jacket’s seams are sewn, puncture holes are created from the sewing machine, these puncture holes create potential leak points within the fabric’s membrane. With the Elite hunter we have used Welded Seams, meaning no puncture holes, lighter construction and higher durability.

Because there is no stitching to the body of the jacket the Elite Hunter is not only 15% lighter than a traditional stitched-seam jacket, but also 30% less bulky.

If you are looking for a jacket that is durable enough to handle the rigors of alpine hunting and higher resistance against the prickly alpine plants, then the Elite Hunter was built for you!
