I am in Hong Kong this week to source & review new developments and technologies for 2012 & 2013 products. This past year I have challenged KUIU’s supply partners to develop new products using innovation and technology to reduce weight without giving up performance.
I met with Toray today and reviewed several new fabric developments they have been working on for KUIU. Toray met the challenge and has developed some AMAZING light weight products. Next-level technology for ultralight layering. I believe these new fabric developments will further reduce your layering system weight by 2 to 3 pounds. These new lightweight fabrics are quiet, durable and use a very high grade of yarn to insure quality and performance that Toray requires.
My vision and goal for KUIU is to continue to take weight out of your gear; How light we can go without giving up performance? Is this important to you? I know it is to me. I always appreciate your input and feedback to make sure KUIU is heading the right direction for the future.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to comment. Your feedback is what makes KUIU great!
