Sitka or Kuiu

For the past 5 or so years I have been using Sitka 90% jacket & pants, but for the past year I have lost some weight so it's time for new. Looking at my options I seem to have quite a few now days. In the area I hunt it is pretty nasty so therefore climbing and weather are always part of the picture. Has anyone tried Kuiu or Sitka gears new clothes? I'm not sure which one to get.

Re: Sitka or Kuiu

I still use my sitka but as of now all of the new stuff I am buying and my go to gear has not switched to Kuiu.... I love it and they camo pattern is better for the areas I hunt..

You wont be disappointed

Re: Sitka or Kuiu

I have some of both but have been leaning more toward Kuiu for my dedicated back country items. I find them to be lighter, simpler, and very functional. For day hunts the Sitka gear is very nice. But when I'm wearing the same set of clothes for a week or more, I want the very best

I have the guide jacket and use it a lot when hunting for the day. I find I'm not using a softshell much when backpacking anymore. I prefer to just use a 1/4 zip shirt, primaloft or down vest/jacket and my breathable rain jacket. So I leave the softshell at home. This is at moderate temperatures down to freezing.

I am still liking my sitka, but will probably buy First lite when I buy new stuff.

I hunt next to the park and have seen -15 mainly in the morning leaving camp. Then of course it will hit 50 the next day. So need to cover the range
