    AWESOME!!!! Thanks Jason and the KUIU folks for this product. This will work great for my early season muley hunts and spring turkey hunts. THANK YOU!

    Thanks Mr. Hairston for finally releasing this item, I’ve been looking forward to getting one. Hopefully they don’t sell out by Friday.

    So, will the new tiburon vias top match the tiburon vias pants or will the tiburon vias top match the vias merino base layer?

    Looks awesome but curious. I hunt in 85- 90 degree heat here in hawaii. Hot all day and if I’m hunting in same clothes for multiple days would you go Tiburon shirt or 125 merino ls top jason?

    • Jason Hairston

      Thanks for the comment, Glen. The ULTRA Tiburon Zip-T will provide a superior amount of breathability, while the Merino 125 would manage scent control more effectively on a multi-day hunt. A great option would be to wear the ULTRA Tiburon Zip-T during the day to keep you well ventilated and wear the Merino 125 at night when ventilation isn’t as pressing. However, if you are looking for a stand-alone shirt to wear in those warm conditions then I’d suggest the ULTRA Tiburon Zip-T because it’d keep your core temperature at a comfortable level but still maintains durability.

    Since the tiburon is in the outer section will it be cut more like the guide jacket with a bit of room to layer or will it be more of a tailored fit like the merino?

    • Jason Hairston

      Thanks for the question, Eric! The ULTRA Tiburon Zip-T isn’t cut like a jacket but does have a looser fit and is made with a four-way-stretch fabric so you could potentially have a light baselayer underneath it. However, it’s designed to be breathable in warm conditions and is not recommended to be worn in cold conditions for insulation.

    I’ve been on the waiting list since spring, can’t wait for mine to get here. Love the tiburon pants.

    This shirt sounds great but I’m curious how the ‘odor resistant’ capabilities compare to normal merino. Is it equally effective in fighting odor as the merino tops?

    • Jason Hairston

      Great question, Kevin. There’s not an apples-to-apples comparison to the Merino wool’s natural antimicrobial qualities, provided by the carnitine protein found in the wool. The new ULTRA Tiburon Zip-T has Toray’s TOREX® MAKSPEC® antimicrobial coating applied to the fabric is the closest any synthetic antimicrobial has come to achieving a similar kind of protection that is found in Merino Wool.

    My question is will this shirt work as an under layer garment to Merino wool over the top?
    Similarly how about under a Guide jacket or vest?

    • Jason Hairston

      Thanks for the question, Joey. The ULTRA Tiburon Zip-T is designed to compliment our layering system for warm weather hunts by being an incredibly breathable and durable next-to-skin layer. However you can wear a baselayer underneath the shirt or a jacket over the shirt for added warmth on cooler days.

    If I understand correctly the pants will not be updated to this material because the pants take advantage of slightly more durable material?

    • Jason Hairston

      That is correctly, JR.

    Also I assume the ultra tiburon top I just ordered will come in the updated vias pattern? My tiburon pants are the older vias pattern… if I order a new pair of pants will they come in the updated vias pattern or is that not a certainty? (I know its crazy to care but I want them the same).

  11. Jason Hairston

    Thanks for the comment, JR! The new Tiburon Pants and the ULTRA Tiburon Zip-T have the same Vias Camo Pattern.

    Jason, I recently used my Tiburon zip T on a muley hunt and loved it. I just placed an order to get one for my dad as well. Just curious to know if you have any plans at all in offering a face mask in the Tiburon material? I intend to wear my Tiburon gear next turkey season and it would be awesome if I had concealment for my face to go with the rest of my gear. Thanks in advance… I truly appreciate your products and your personal approach to interacting with your customer base.

    • Jason Hairston

      I had not considered a Tiburon Face mask, I like this idea. I use our Merino Neck Gaiter for a face mask and really like it. I will mock one up and test it and see how it works. It makes a lot of sense. Thank you for this idea.


  13. Jorma Sharpe

    No problem at all. I have been using the merino gaiter as well but it is a little tight on my face. I also wear glasses and I found that on the cooler mornings the gaiter would cause my glasses to fog up. I have to pull it down under my nose to prevent that from happening. I thought maybe the Tiburon material could be used to improve the fit, breathing and fogging up my glasses. I would love it if you could offer this item to us. Thanks again!!!

    Just curious to know if you had done a mock up on a face mask made with the Tiburon material? If so… what was your opinion & do you think it would be something you would offer? If not, then I was curious to know if I could purchase a yard or so of the Tiburon material & have my wife make one for me? Thank you for your time!
