Default Kuiu camo

Anyone have any kuiu camo? How do you like it. Need some sizing help as well. I hear they are an athletic fit but what does that even mean? Any info is appreciated!

I have some. It's good quality. Athletic fit means it's made for people that are built like Michael Waddell and Nick Mundt, not for T-Bone turner.

I have it. I really like it. Most comfortable hunting clothes I have worn. I order one size bigger, because I like my clothes to fit loose.

This!

I love it and have quite a bit. Vias pattern for me. Goes anywhere. Pants run about true to size. I order 36 and usually wear a 34 or 36. I did order up one size on jackets and am pleased with that call. My 1/4 zip shirts run snug in my correct size but I want that for bow string clearance and they have good give to them.

X3. The attack pants are awesome! I have 3 pairs. I like the Tiburon line for hot weather.

I went a size up for shirts. "Athletic Fit" is proper talk for smedium. Best gear I've ever had. Very cool story the more I have read about how the company was started and their vision. I will be buying more KUIU gear for sure.

I have tiburon shirts and love them. I also have the attack pants. They are real comfortable but got shredded on elk hunt this fall walking through tons of catclaw. It is athletic fit clothing. The attack pants in gray are nice just to wear around and not necessarily hunting.

Sitka's whitetail line is actually pretty good. With some stout insulation pieces

I like kuiu tribron and 160 wool for antelope hunting. Although I almost froze to death one morning since temps dropped to 30.

its in 80's in Webb county this week.

Although I prefer Cabelas Berber pull over down here I like my kuiu and firstlite layering system out west

I tried on a large vest at the DSC show last week, over a sweater, button down, under shirt. Way too tight, even removing the sweater. Also tried on a 2xl jacket over the same clothes and it fit like a Large Tall. Hence, I second the "athletic fit" comments. Order as such.

Just giving everyone a hard time lol I had to sell so much of my hunting clothes when we moved up here to buy First Lite as all my Texas hunting apparel was too heavy and warm for hiking my *** off in the hills looking for wapiti.

I agree the Sitka whitetail line is nice, but spendy as hell. Cabelas outfitter fleece is the bomb for cold *** Texas sits!

extremely light weight, very comfortable, its great for mild cold weather hunts and if you walk a bit to your stand or blind, for frigid cold I still prefer my cabelas marino wool and ect.. but I mean we live in texas and one day its 20 and the next is 90, so I barely get to wear the cabelas gear because it makes me sweat quite a bit once I'm walking to my blind

Jackets run small too? Base should be tight next layers a bit looser and outer layer (jackets) fit over all that but still snug. If a jacket is worn without the layers it would be a bit more loose.


Maybe the athletic fit just isn't comfortable to some people though

Frankly speaking, what percentage of people on his board actually have an athletic build that would match kuiu's tailoring style? Maybe 15%??? It's no surprise it Doesn't fit "true to size" for a lot of people when you think about it.

True. It fits true to their measurements they show in the sizing chart though if people take the time to check their measurements. Obviously if your chest would fit but your waist was bigger then that shirt would be snug in the gut and need a bigger size.


A lot more than 15% of mountain hunters (which it's made for) will have an athletic build though

I would recommend a different camo for stand hunting in Texas. I used Kuiu this past year for deer hunting and it was not warm at all. I highly recommend it for Elk hunting though. I'm going to give First lite a try.

i went and bought a full system from them. Agree with bkag . . . . it's ok for stand hunting. Great workmanship and quality. I wore mine stand hunting but was a little chillier then my oversized stand stuff.

It excels in active environment . . . elk, goat stuff where you are moving.

You can't go wrong with FL. I swear by it from antelope season all the way through the end of rifle elk up here. All about layers. The merino is awesome . You never smell like a bag of *** even after a week of hunting in the mountains.
