The KUIU Attack pant is made with a 225 g/m2 Double Weave Toray Primeflex fabric that allows this pant to weigh a mere 18.75 ounces, 40% less than comparable pants using a same weight non-Toray fabric. Primeflex fabrics utilize a patented spiral yarn technology allowing the fabric to stretch and recover without elastic. Most stretch fabrics use elastic which is heavy, hydrophilic (attracts and holds moisture) and wears out over time. Besides weighing less, the Attack Pant fabric is quiet, very durable and abrasion resistant, 4-way stretch, does not collect burrs, breaths and has a soft, lightly brushed back for next to skin comfort. This fabric comes with Toray’s industry leading DWR with an 80/20 minimum spray rating. I have researched hundreds and hundreds of stretch woven fabrics over the years and this is by far the best fabric in thickness, weight and performance I have ever tested for a mountain hunting pant.
The development team and I spent a lot of time on fit. This pant is designed with articulated knees, boot cut lower leg, a rise that allows you to climb without binding and a full gusset in the crotch for additional range of motion, comfort and durability. We added two well located pleated and zippered cargo pockets, two zippered rear pockets and oversized hand pockets. The hand pocket bags are made with a brushed tricot, mesh fabric that is light weight, durable and comfortable.
Lots of small details in this pant including the web and bar-tacked button, and the care, country of origin and sizing label easily tears out leaving just the KUIU hanger label. No big bulky uncomfortable tags to cut out. To insure the quality and craftsmanship, all KUIU apparel is developed and made in one of the finest technical cut and sew houses in the world located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
The Attack Pant is available in KUIU’s Vias Camouflage and Charcoal Grey at the wholesale price of only $139.99 at kuiu.com. This pant would retail for $249.99. The Attack Pant is available in 32, 34, 36, 38 & 40″ waist sizes with a 35″ inseam and a 1″ cuff you may let out if you need to extend the pant to a 35 3/4″” inseam.
KUIU’s Vias Camouflage Preview
I am very excited to enclose the above photos of KUIU’s Vias camouflage in the correct color pallet. I know many of you have been waiting a long time to see this pattern in the correct colors, thank you for your patience. Vias is a macro camouflage pattern designed to break up the human profile at longer distances for mountain hunting. We will be shooting in the field soon to give you very clear understanding of how well this pattern works in different mountain environments. I will also cover the design and development of the pattern in this up coming post
Please let me know if you have any questions or comments regarding the new Attack Pant. I look forward to hearing your feed back.
