Re: Rivers West or Sitka
BH Hunter: The KUIU base layer is great. I used it in Wyoming as well as Colorado this year. It is high quality Merino wool. Very close to Smartwool except a little less itchy and a whole lot tougher. As far as price, Jason will only be selling it direct to keep prices down. I am not sure how it will compare to Sitka in price, but I expect it to be somewhere close. Hopefully somewhat less expensive, but it is higher quality fabrics. I have not tried the pack yet. They have only made a few protoytpes, but they should be ready for the market in April or so and I have one of the first ones reserved. I plan to put two to three weeks on it the Fall, depending on what I draw for tags. If you haven't checked out the KUIU website, you should. The blog page has a lot of great information on it.
By the way, I used to hunt fairly close to you in the Bighorns in Wyoming. I have family/friends in Sheridan, Buffalo, and Sundance. Beautiful country.
