KENAI – The Essential Jacket

International Orders

Dear International Customers,

We have received some feedback that some of you have experienced difficulties in finalizing your online orders due to what displays as an “AVS Mismatch” error. Our high security settings require the billing address on an order to match exactly what the bank has on file for your credit card. Because most International addresses are formatted differently than a US address, it’s common for International customers to fill out the billing address fields with small errors. This will always result in an “AVS Mismatch”.

Here are a couple options for ensuring your order gets placed without error:
1. Contact your cardholder and ask for the exact format of your billing address. Extra spaces, characters, abbreviations, and capitalization matters. Carefully enter this address into the required fields when placing your online order.


2. Once you have set up a secured online customer account, save your credit card information using the instructions below. At this point you may email Ben Britton ( with a list of items you’d like to order. He will manually bypass any AVS Mismatch errors while placing your order, and follow up promptly with an official invoice. Be sure to send your order from the same email address used on your KUIU customer account.

Instructions for saving a credit card:

- Log into your online KUIU Account.
- Under Payment Settings, choose Edit or Delete a Credit/Debit Card.
- Choose Payment Method – Credit Card, and click Continue.
- Enter your Credit Card information and leave the Box checked to save. Click continue to finish.


I hope these guidelines alleviate any further frustrations. Thank you for your business and continued support.

Introducing the 2015 ICON PRO and new Accessories

This morning on KUIU Live, we revealed the 2015 ICON PRO Pack Series along with the addition of the ICON PRO 3200, KUIU SFS Bow Kit and the KUIU Pack Load Hauler. Once again, we want to thank everyone for an incredible turnout.

Congratulations to all of our winners:

Jon-Paul Jaramillo of Mesa, Arizona

Brock Nelson of Spriingville, Utah

Grey Wilson of Logan, Utah


The introduction of the ICON PRO 3200 rounds off the ICON PRO Pack Series, making the entire line the most comprehensive hunting backpack system in the industry.  At a mere 4lbs 4oz, the ICON PRO 3200 is an ideal size for a large late season day pack with the capability of extending a hunter’s stay to 1-3 days. The ICON PRO 3200 has strategically placed internal and external pocketing and 3200 cubic inches of packable space making it a great addition to our product line.

Available in:
Phantom-Major Brown, Vias, Verde

$424.98 (full kit)


KUIU Pack Load Hauler

At the request of our customers we designed the KUIU Pack Load Hauler to carry large loads without the full pack bag attached. The KUIU Pack Load Hauler is an ultra-light accessory for the ICON Pro and ULTRA frame and suspension capable of carrying animal quarters, boned out meat and extra gear.

Available in:
Steel Grey, Vias, Verde





When researching ultra-light bow protection kits currently available, we quickly recognized an obvious void in the market. The KUIU SFS Bow Kit is designed to protect vulnerable parts of your bow from debris, abrasions and the elements.  Each piece of the kit can easily be installed, removed, and compresses quickly to be stored in a pocket.  The SFS Kit is ideal for all hunting situations, transportation and long term storage when your bow is not in use.  This is a must have accessory for all bow owners.

Available in:
Major Brown, Vias, Verde

$29.99 (3 piece set)



11-Ounce Carbon Fiber Frame

The 11-ounce carbon fiber frame is the foundation of our ICON PRO and ULTRA Pack lines. Minimal changes were made to the 2015 California made carbon fiber frame. Last year we designed the frame to be stronger, lighter, stiffer, and narrower ensuring the highest quality and performance.

The frame is available in two sizes, the Regular fitting torso lengths 15” to 17.5” and the Tall 17.5” to 22”.
