    Here is the info. Some big names are making garments with this stuff. But, oh so pricey.

    The KUIU fabric is good stuff. Check out their website and blog. They did a lot of homework trying what Sitka did to the next level. Plus your putting your dollars toward a hunting company who supports the industry and conservation, unlike the anti hunting stances of the other guys.... Just a thought.. : )

    Thanks High Country. I am familiar with Kuiu, and have some of their products. I really think they are going about it the right way. I have high hopes they will look at fabrics like eVent and Neoshell for their products to keep raising the bar for hunting clothing.

    I also have the Under Armour Camo raingear. I love it, its been through it all and has held up just like advertised. I like it so much I tend to use it like regular camo and not just raingear.

    Kuiu Chugach rain gear is made with the same membrane as EVent.
    It is super breathable and very water proof. Great stuff and tough too.

    If it is eVent, I am in!

    My eVent jacket is truly waterproof and breathable, unlike Goretex, which is only waterproof, in my experience.

    I'm a Kiwi boy and the weather in New Zealand is always unpredictable (Hence the song 'Four seasons in one day' Crowded House) ..And I'm a huge fan of our brand here 'Hunters Element' ...no harm in checking it out at least ..")

    Apologies for resurrecting an old thread. I need new rain gear and need advise since this stuff is too high price to sit in the closet.
    Looking at Cabela's MT 050 Quiet Pack, Kryptek Koldo and Kuiu Chugach. Would like something that is light enough for all around backpacking, mountain hunting mostly on foot but good if tough enough to deal with horseback and brush; quiet enough that I would not have to take it off if I needed to do a quick stalk. One other problem is I am 6'3" and have a 35-36 inseam. Which of these (or other suggestions) would be the best compromise. I do have water repellent shells, probably good enough if warm, just not enough for long, heavy rain when colder.
    Thanks

    Anyone use the Helly Hanson raingear? While planning a trip to Alaska, I was told to bring Helly Hanson or don't come

    Helly Hansen Impertech is the stuff most of us Alaskans use when not backpacking. If weight is a consideration quality stuff like the KUIU Chugach and other Goretex / eVent type products is the way to go.
