Kuiu Hunting Apparel 

This season I have been trailing a full set of Kuiu hunting apparel. Like any new gear it takes a little time to get used to it, but now I wouldn't go anywhere without it. I believe the rainwear is as good as anything on the market, the gaiters are brilliant, the bino harness is great and the mid and outer layers are warm and durable. All gear is lightweight and designed for backpack hunting. The best part is you buy direct from the Supplier so there is no middleman.

Summer hunting - the lightweight shirts and pants in late February doing the job nicely.

Summer Chamois with Ole from Denamrk - the lightweight pants and shirts were strong enough to handle west coast wilderness hunting.

Head skinning a chamois buck in the west coast fog and rain - fully protected with the Kuiu rainwear.

The Kuiu gaiters seen here are brilliant, extremely easy and quick to put on, great for the wet scrub and those annoying creek crossings which are over your boots.

Mark Pittock with his 12 inch wilderness bull tahr - the Kuiu pack takes a rest in the scrub waiting for the pack out.

'I wanted to make the lightest and highest performing Mountain Hunting clothing possible. I wanted to create a brand that stood for uncompromised quality, uncompromised performance, and where the whole process, the design and technology and sourcing, are shared with the consumer. From my experience at Sitka I knew this idea wasn't viable or realistic within the existing retail model-everything I wanted to make would just cost too much. So I thought, why not bypass the retailer, why not take the middle-man out of the process and move everything one step closer to the customer. By selling online direct we could make the best products, keep the prices down and manage, to our standards, every aspect of the customer experience.' Jason Hairston - Founder of Kuiu.
