New for 2015, is our GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Elevated II pattern, the new and improved version of our Elevated Forest pattern. While utilizing the same technology and methods of concealment as our previous Elevated Forest pattern, Elevated II has been fine-tuned to better handle the changing seasons so it functions more as an all-season pattern while also allowing for further engagement distances.
Tree stand hunting presents a unique combination of concealment challenges. The vertical effects of trees and closer engagement distances of this hunting style make detection of the hunter easier for the prey. The macro and micro patterns in GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Elevated II pattern meet these specific challenges.
One of the scientific principles used in the development of the GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Elevated pattern’s has been “Vertical Effect Compensation.” In layman’s terms, it’s why a wine stain shows up more readily on a striped shirt than on a paisley one. And it’s why our elevated patterns have always vanished into the canopy. Our newest pattern, the GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Elevated II, takes this to an entirely new level by optimizing the elevated pattern to extend the overall seasonal effectiveness and increasing the range of engagement. In order to do so, the new GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Elevated II pattern considers the changing and dropping of foliage and the need for further engagement throughout the fall and early winter season. By adjusting the overall color, reducing the amount of foliage, and increasing the amount of sky we are able blend into the evolving canopy and extend your hunting season and engagement range.
The GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Elevated II pattern is designed for whitetail hunters. Its macro and micro pattern configurations echo the higher contrast of bright sky against the shaded underside of foliage, while allowing hunters to extend their season as the leaves change. It’s designed for engagement ranges of 80 yards and under, and keeps you undetectable at 15 feet up in a tree stand.
