Re: Kuiu gear
Here's my .02 on Kuiu and Sitka Gear. I am what you would call an active hunter. I have tried many brands of camo hunting gear that I hoped would keep me dry while hunting the Oregon coast range. The problem here is that while it's raining it's also 50*....very humid. For me Kuiu and Sitka are in a tie for being light weight, durable, and most important breathable...as long as the DWR holds up. I sweat like crazy and with a good merino wool base layer...I use Smart Wool 150gm2 micro weight, this stuff manages to keep the rain off while not overheating me so when I do stop to glass I don't get that cold/clammy feeling.
Both camo patterns also work much better at longer ranges to break up the human silhouette.
For me it's a few base layers with a hard shell and a Kuiu Down shirt in my pack for insulation when needed. To me it's worth every penny and the Sitka Gear can be had cheaper if you shop for it.
