Product Overview

Waterproof. Windproof. Insulated.

Applying all the necessary layers to protect against extreme cold, wind, rain, and snow can leave you feeling restricted and uncomfortable. Our Gale Force Jacket answers with waterproof protection, body-mapped insulation and an uncompromised fit, all in one. This purpose-built solution allows you to hunt in conditions most wouldn’t consider.

Since 2015, Gale Force prototypes have been tested in the worst conditions found around the world. From the Arctic to the Lower-48, and from Bering Sea to the Pamir Mountains of Asia, product testers report braving extreme wind, rain, snow, and temperatures as low as -40 °F (-40 °C).

The Shell: 100% waterproof and windproof. If you’re preparing for a tough hunt that’s cold, wet, and brush-choked, you need protection from an insulated rain gear system that’s durable, lightweight, and dries quick. The Gale Force Jacket features a new microporous hydrophobic membrane from Toray® that breathes well during all levels of activity and absorbs minimal water for faster dry times.

The durable stretch nylon 6/6 face fabric offers great tear strength for its weight, and will stay dry longer due to a new, more durable K-DWR treatment. The new Torain® 3-layer construction adds a revolutionary new seam tape that, along with the membrane, give enhanced hydrolysis resistance for improved garment longevity.

If you’ve ever had water soak in from under your sleeves, you’ll appreciate the extended waterproof paneling on the inside of the cuffs.

The Insulation: Features body-mapped 3DeFX+ insulation throughout the jacket for optimal temperature regulation.
• 90g in hood/sleeves/body sides
• 150g in front body/back body/shoulder
• 60g in collar and cuffs

3DeFX+ combines insulation made from coil-shaped fibers and stretch fabrics to provide unmatched warmth and freedom of movement. Its continuous fiber technology is loftier and warmer than other synthetic insulation options. It’s perfect when the need for extreme warmth and flexibility intersect.

The Fit: Designed with an outer-layer fit, our Gale Force Jacket has room underneath for additional layers. For example, if you measure size large, sizing accommodates room for a large base and mid layer, a large Kenai ULTRA Jacket, and a large Gale Force Jacket would comfortably layer over. If you’re between sizes, choose the next larger size. The hood is sized to fit over a Kenai Bomber or helmet. Refer to the sizing chart for accurate fit.

The Function:
• Designed for wintry conditions or late season hunts.
• Built for long term durability: Features durable nylon 6/6 face fabric, hydrolysis-resistant membrane and seam tape. Large heavy-duty zippers.
• Waterproof fabric wrapped around the inside of cuffs and hem limits water migration into the insulation.
• Internal cinches limit air exchange in the cold.
• Worn with minimal under-layers while temperatures are at freezing point. Add layers underneath for colder weather applications.
• Ideal as a convenient all-in-one shell for riding or traveling by ATV, side-by-sides, horseback etc. to a hunt location.
• Great for stand and waterfowl hunting which requires durable waterproof, windproof, and insulated protection while remaining stationary.
• Outside of hunting, Gale Force would be ideal with snowmobiling, skiing, and everyday wear in the cold.
