Re: Rivers West or Sitka
As stated, Jason Hairston was the mastermind behind Sitka and is now launching KUIU. As good as Sitka is, KUIU really is a step up. The biggest improvement in the clothing line are the fabrics. Sitka is very good, but KUIU is the absolute best. Knowing Jason for a while, I have accumulated quite a collection of Sitka gear and it is great gear. I used a proto-type set of KUIU clothing this last season and can truly say it is an upgrade. The stretch and combination of breathability and water resistence (actually closer to water proof) is absolutley unbelievable. I haven't got over to his shop to try the pack out yet, but a buddy has and says it is better than it looks/sounds. I will be hog hunting next month with Jason and a group of guys, so I am sure he will bring the pack along so I will get to see it in action at least.
