Introducing KUIU’s New Chinook Pant

Introducing the new Chinook Pant to the KUIU soft shell product line. At a mere 17.5 ounces, Chinook Pant are made with 30 Denier Toray® Stunner Stretch face fabric that’s bonded to a brushed polyester micro check fleece backer treated with Kudos DWR® to make the Chinook Pant extremely durable, breathable and water resistant. These pants also include a darted Primeflex® kneepad insert that effortlessly molds to the knee and has a three-layer Dermizax® NX membrane that makes the kneepad waterproof while using the pants in the field.

 

 

Getting the Most Out of Your Food

As I was preparing my pack for my Stone Sheep hunt in British Columbia, I thought I’d share a video that would give some insight as to what I do to get the most nutrition and calories per ounce.

 

Introducing KUIU’s New Insulated Gloves

Today we are excited to introduce three new insulated gloves; The KENAI, NORTHSTAR and SUPER DOWN Glassing Mitt. The KENAI and NORTHSTAR gloves feature a revolutionary technology called OUTDRY®. This technology solves many different performance based problems that would normally occur with traditional waterproof breathable gloves. The KENAI glove is an incredibly versatile glove for those mid-to-late season hunts, and the NORTHSTAR is the absolute perfect late season glove, and can flawlessly handle extreme cold and wet conditions.

Our SUPER DOWN Glassing Mitt is perfect for keeping your hands comfortable while glassing for long periods of time. It is an extremely lightweight and highly compressible glove that is filled with our revolutionary Quixdown® material for superior warmth in frigid conditions. We have also included Toray Stunner Stretch® face fabric for a comfortable fit that is treated with Toray’s Kudos DWR® coating for unmatched water resistance.

  

 The addition of the KENAI, NORTHSTAR and SUPER DOWN Glassing Mitt has truly rounded off our glove line to suit all possible hunting scenarios and weather conditions.

Limited Quantities: Zamberlan KUIU Pamir Boot

I want to take a moment to thank you for the great response we have received to our Zamberlan KUIU Pamir boot.  Since our release last November, sales have been steady and the feedback has been great.  As we go into this year’s hunting season, we have limited quantities of the Zamberlan KUIU Pamir, so if you are in need of a great mountaineering style hunting boot, you may want to purchase now.

The Zamberlan KUIU Pamir boot is ideal for the harshest hunting and climbing conditions you will experience.  They perform exceptionally well in extremely technical terrain, steep rocky mountains, high glacier trails and perfect for ice climbing and places where crampons are necessary.

When I decided to develop a boot, I wanted to create one that featured all the advancements and performance found only in Premium Alpine Mountaineering boots.  The list of ingredients we have included are the best and unmatched by any other hunting boot in the industry and only found in the finest mountaineering boots made in the world.  After another year of hunting in the Zamberlan KUIU Pamir, I can confidently say, with the help of Zamberlan, we have accomplished my goal.

Introducing the ICON PRO

My vision when I founded KUIU was to constantly strive to make our products the best and most versatile on the market for every caliber of hunter. Our most recent innovation, the ICON PRO is the next step in the continued evolution of our packs. We designed the ICON PRO Series for mountain hunting guides and expedition hunters that demand high durability and carry massive weight loads. The ICON PRO pack gets its strength from a new carbon fiber frame that is stiffer and stronger, and works in concert with our newly designed suspension system to create the most comfortable user experience possible, especially when carrying heavy weight.

The ICON PRO is a full-feature pack with extensive internal and external pocketing so you can organize your gear safely, quietly and conveniently. The ICON PRO gives you a full horseshoe-zip opening that allows complete access to your main storage compartment, several interior pockets and your hydration system. It has large exterior front and side pockets perfect for carrying optics and gear that needs to be accessed quickly. We’ve also incorporated a new system of internal lashing points and removable straps to allow better interior organization and make it easier to carry heavy internal loads high and close to your back.

The ICON PRO weighs incredibly little for a pack designed for guide-caliber durability and load-carrying requirements. The ICON PRO packs are made with the finest materials available, including Toray Carbon Fiber, 500 Denier CORDURA® Brand Rip-Stop, YKK Zippers, and Duraflex® Hardware. The ICON PRO features a new, larger hip belt structure for improved comfort when carrying heavy loads. A new removable side-of-hip-belt webbing system allows you to run your hip belt clean of any side straps, or attach accessories such as a gun, bear spray, or a rangefinder.

The ICON PRO pack system is designed to fit all body types and sizes. The frame and hip belt are available in two sizes and the easily adjustable track system allows for a quick, perfect fit. Hip belt pouches are available separately and attach securely to the hip belt, allowing for easy access to the smaller items you need on the trail.
