Pyke FAQ

  1. What is the difference between Waterproof and DWR products?

    Pyke offers products in both Waterproof and DWR finishes. Just as the name sounds, Waterproof products are designed to repel 100% of water from rain, snow, sleet, or dew. DWR, or Durable Water Repellent, products received a treatment that causes water to bead and run off of the surface of the fabric. DWR products do an excellent job of shedding water in mist, light rain, or early morning dew. Waterproof products are generally heavier in weight that DWR Products, and DWR products are generally more breathable and very quickly drying. Refer to the Pyke Gear Use Icons for each item to learn the specifics of regarding Waterproof and DWR for each product.

  2. Picking your Size

    Pyke invested significant time and effort in designed clothes for the dedicated upland hunter. Pyke clothing has been built for an outdoor athlete with a generous athletic cut. Shirts are designed with additional length in the torso to ensure they can remain tucked even when swinging a gun for a flushing pheasant. They have extra room in the shoulders to allow free movement and layer options. Pants provide generous room in the seat and thighs and the waist measurement should reflect what you wear in your favorite pair of jeans. The inseam length on pants comes standard at 32, but our quick hem release feature allows you to remove one seam and adjust your hem to 34 inches in less than a minute.
