Kuiu world tour
« on: May 16, 2017, 12:44:11 PM »
One of the knocks for me on Kuiu gear was the inability to try it on before buying (unless you live near their California store).  Kuiu appears to be tackling that problem buy taking to the road.

They will be at the Alderwood Mall June 8-10.  I hope to make it up there and try on some of their stuff.  Anyone else going to stop by?

This will be kinda cool. More importantly they are building a sheep rifle with Remington and Leupold and it would be cool to get some insight as to what the hell a sheep rifle is?!?! I think Kuiu is getting a little too red carpet. I do like some of their clothes though.

I thinks it's wise choice for them to do this tour. It will help bring in those that are on the fence about fitment/form/function as well as curious on lookers who may not even be interested in hunting let alone know there is a market out there for them. One the biggest complaints I hear is that there is no where to try on most of the higher end camo other than Sitka in the big box stores and very limited amounts of first lite. This will be good opportunity to compare other than trying on a buddy's gear.

That sounds like a horrible drive to try some clothes on for those in the south end. They need a 2nd stop  :P

I agree it should have been somewhere around Tukwila.

I'm surprised they put a stop in Portland. Only 20min from home..... I wonder if they won't have sales tax ....if they don't it might be a good chance for me to save, show discount, no shipping and no tax.... hmmmm

Thanx for posting this, I just purchased some of there gear, after a lot of comparison shopping, for some of us, this is a little bit of an investment to purchase this gear, I need a little a little bit more and this would be great, a little bit of a trip but total wine is down there and they have every Whiskey, beer and wine you could think of in there...

Bit of a line in Portland this evening - only 12 allowed in the Semi-showroom at a time.  I liked the Chinook Pants / Jacket - a lot like my Sitka 90% stuff.   The light raingear is really packable.  Don't need it with my chugach tho.  Didn't buy anything for the 10% off but got a small wish list going.  Nice to be able to check it out. 

  They are parked on far southeast corner of Clackamas Mall.

I can imagine Seattle is going to be a zoo. I originally understood that they would have inventory but my last update read like they were saying they were taking direct orders at the truck. So did they actually have items in stock on the truck?
