KUIU is a company committed to developing the finest technical hunting gear on the planet. Founded by Jason Hairston,the former founder and CEO of Sitka, KUIU is a brand that refuses to compromise on quality or performance.  “All of our products are designed to excel in the most challenging backcountry hunting conditions possible. That is our commitment and our guarantee,” according to Jason.

The open pattern of this camo really breaks up the silloute of the human body!  The pattern is not the only thing that makes this camo awesome, more important is the material they use.

Can you say Kyrgystan?  Yes, it has been tested there!

The innovative new hunting clothing line of Kuiu is now taking orders!  You must pre-register on their web-site to get in line to purchase this highly sought after line of high adventure clothing! Due to the high demand of this product, Jason Hairston of Kuiu says “the 2011 inventory of Kuiu will probably sell out before it even hits the public markets” He goes on to say ” I am totally shocked by the overwhelming response that this line of gear has generated in the last year”.  Kuiu Clothing is a high end adventure clothing line that will work from the highest peaks in Alaska to the Valley floors of the Tiburon Island of Mexico.  This can be seen on their web-site. You can check out this unbelievable line of gear at KUIU.com.  There are some great reads on their site taking you through the whole process that this new company has endured over the last year. Check it out! KUIU.com

My order has been placed and I will let you know my take on this highly sought after product. You can still register online at Kuiu.com and hopefully get a shopping date to pick yourself up some of this revolutionary new hunting apparel.

Here are some of their products that they will be offering online. Check out their site for more products! THIS IS NOT A PAID ADD! I just believe I should share these awesome products with you my faithful readers.










The 17.75 ounce Guide Jacket is made with a 274 g/m2 Toray Primeflex Softshell, a 100% polyester stretch woven face fabric, bonded to a high performance micro-fleece backer fabric. DWR treated at the yarn level with Toray’s patented & industry leading Kudos DWR, the guide jacket gives you an unmatched weather protection for a non-laminated softshell.











The 18.75 ounce Attack pant is made with a 225 g/m2 Toray Primeflex Double Weave fabric. The Attack pant weighs 40% less than comparable pants using a same weight non-Toray fabric. Primeflex fabrics utilize a patented spiral yarn technology allowing the fabric to stretch and recover without elastic











Jason says “I created the KUIU model to develop and produce products like the patent pending Icon frame; the worlds first carbon fiber backpack frame.  At a mere 13oz the Icon frame is the foundation to supporting heavy loads while still remaining comfortable to hunt in all day.”

The final Prototypes of the packs are here.   As many of you may notice, the pack volumes have increased.  The 3000 weight increased with some design improvements through development and re-measuring. The new volume measurements are 2998 cubic inches & 6003 cubic inches. These packs are designed to cover a 1 to 6 day bivy hunts with the 3000 and 7 to 14 day sheep hunts in the 6000.

Anyone one can toot their own horn, however Jason has a proven track record with Sitka.  I’m guessing his new line will be even better than the old!  Thats going to be a tough feat, but I’m  sure Jason and crew are up to the task.  As soon as I get my goodies I will let you know what I think of this new line of high tech outdoor gear.  We will be trying out the Attack pant, the Guide jacket, the Zip T under shirt, and the 3000 icon pack with carbon frame.  I will keep you updated on everything from working with the company, the product, service, shipping, and most important to me, the comfort of their product!  Chat with you soon!
