    I was wondering if anyone would know if Kuiu 2X would fit me? I am 6'3" and 270 lbs and wear 2X in just about everything.

    The merino fits snug which I wasn't expecting at first but it is a base layer so I got over it, I usually wear an XL for tops and that's what I get

    I bought their attack pants a month or so ago, they are really nice. I haven't worn them yet, but plan on starting some hiking trips soon. I love that they are not camo!

I've got quality winter gear but have never done more than cheap cotton camo for archery summer months.
    Jason, I purchased the Tiburon pants last summer and really enjoyed them. They were a little chilly in the mornings here in NE NV during my archery deer hunt, but were really nice when midday hit. The slightest breeze is felt all through the pants so it was cooling with sweat on the legs. If I had any negativity to these pants, is that they are holey, so depending on the terrain you plan on hunting, you get snagged up a little. Hunting sage brush/buck brush mountains didn't bother me too much when I did get caught up. To my surprise, I never did find a tear in the pants so they have some good durability. Towards the end of the hunt I did switch to the attack pants due to the colder mornings.

    For the top, I haven't purchased any of the newer stuff, still sporting the 185 crew and zip-t. Never had a problem with overheating or smell.

    I might pe looking at the attack pants then, seems the majority are using them year round. The chills in the morning are a pain when trying to glass, the zip vents would be a good way to regulate temps. In August I hate having to strip layers off my legs, top doesn't bother me.

    Some of the guys were talking about camo patterns the other day and the consensus was that the KUIU Verdi pattern worked really well. One guy said he had a hard time finding his cameraman after they got separated and it turned out he was right in front of him wearing Verdi.

    I've heard a lot of good comments about the Attack pants and good things about the Guide pants, too.

    depends on how your 270# is arranged...

    I'm 6'3, was 240 when I bought the 2xl tops, now 210. The long sleeve 17 merino top is great for base layer, no extra room but not tight. I wear it every day around the house. The 2xl "merino blend jacket" (kuiu clearance item) has more room and is more of a mid layer; both function and fit. The "jacket" does not have enough room for a base and mid under it for my upper body shape.

    Thank you for info, I was actually looking at the clearance jackets and now I will order one. Thanks. Sadly I may need to look at the 3x jacket. Are you talking about the insulation layer, the hooded jacket is looking pretty good.

    Buy one size bigger than you normally would with KUIU.
