Is KUIU better than Sitka? I know Jason was involved with Sitka and then split off to do KUIU. I'm looking for a new gear set up for this upcoming MF Elk season. Does KUIU offer a military discount? Currently deployed overseas and have been doing lots of research on new gear, just never considered KUIU. Any help is appreciated.
Ain't nothing better than the adrenaline you get when seeing an animal in the wild.

Both are top quality gear.  I like KUIU better but that is a personal preference.  As far as military discount you get 10%.  All you have to do is scan and email your DD214 or maybe just your active duty military ID.  I did it a few months ago and it was pretty quick.

I have a Kuiu Jacket and gaiters.  Both are exceptional.  I am amazed at how warm the jacket is, even as light as it is.  I have some Kuiu stuff, some Sitka and some Kryptek.  All are comparable. 
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

My usual go to has been attack pant, teton short sleeve, peleton 240 full zip and guide jacket. Added chugach rain pants and rain jacket for late season. Im primarly hunting SW Washington september till the end of the year so you got an idea of the weather

Cold gear base layers I go with other more affordable stuff for late seasons.

On a side note, i usually wear an XL. And the rain jacket and pants were a lot larger than expected unlike the rest of the XL sized stuff i got. Had to downsize to large. This was with layering undernearh including guide jacket in XL. This is in verde 1.0, not sure if anything changed in later manufactured stuff.

Not sure if youíre a fan of gaiters but Kuiuís are awesome, I love mine.  I too made the plunge to Kuiu and havenít liked back.  Nice to be able to order items as well knowing exactly how rheyíll fit, no more second-guessing.  Best of luck

Iíve just about everything they made when it was still being made in BC. Most of my stuff is about 9 yrs old and itís still going just fine. The merino shirt is getting pulled up from the pack and fading, but itís 9yrs old so... itís also worth noting I sold all my Sitka stuff when I bought all the Kuiu stuff. Had one of the original 6000ci packs. Just run an 1850 now. What I carry can fit in the pack, meat can go in the load sling between the bag and frame. I love their stuff, though most of mine is the Canadian made stuff.
