The Traverse is the brainchild of the Hunters Element head product designer. He wanted to create the ultimate mid/outer layer that could be used on just about every hunt. The Traverse was made to keep you warm while glassing and stalking without overheating, as so often happens with membrane lined outer layers. The purpose-built Hydrafuse‰ã¢HYBRIDTECH‰ã¢ fabric uses a water-resistant, two-way stretch outer with a high loft fleece inner. This means that the jacket is really warm but breathes exceptionally well, all the while remaining quiet, soft and blocking out about 90% of the wind.
He then took every top quality feature he could find and packed them into the jacket. This includes high-quality zips, a fold-away TunnelTECH‰ã¢hood, silicone shoulder grips, zippered slim-lined chest and lower pockets with hand warmers, and premium cuff adjusters.
We spend the majority of our time wearing mid and outer layers while hunting. The Traverse is the absolute ultimate bridge between these layers for the serious hunter.
