    Looks good and should be a great way for like minded hunters to share their ideas and experiences (Ryan already has a good tip for a stuff sac for the rain gear).

    Great article on the website about how KUIU came about too.

    Hey Kuiu/Jason,
    First off I would have to say this is my very first entry on any forum ever!!
    So bare with me if I lack some sort of forum etiquette.
    I am very excited about Kuiu products and look forward to watching the product develop.
    Being Canadian I am also very stoked that most of the apparel is made in Canada. (We have to support our North American economy)

    If I may I would like to put an idea out there, and a simple one at that, as a hunter and someone who enjoys the great outdoors I’m sure most of us can relate when I say I hate getting wet (rained on). That being said there is no such thing as bad weather only bad equipment.
    I would like to put forward an idea for a rain poncho/Guide trap, an all in one deal.
    Something light weight that could be easily packed way, used for all kinds of different situations. A poncho that could act as guide tarp be put on to keep dry or even a quick blind. Something simple, rectangular piece of breathable water proof camo material with some eyelets in the corners etc.
    Just an idea. Who knows?
    Quebec Canada

      Thanks Mark for taking the time to comment and your input. I have used a poncho many times and they are life savers in really bad weather even with rain gear. Do you have one you recommend to look at? Let me know and welcome to KUIU.

    Actual its kinda why I recommended the idea because I’ve never really seen a higher end poncho, especialy in a hunting camo. I usualy use my military surplus one. If I was able to puchase a poncho made of high end low weight material with a secondary use as a small guide trap/shelter (eyelets in the corners for tye downs etc) could be a cool piece of gear that doesnt take up to much room in a pack, not to mention the advantage of breaking up the human form.
    Thanks for getting back to me.

    i have seen these types of ponchos at mec or rei. they are made of a silicon material and with trekking poles they stand up as a quick shelter
