How’s the waterproofing on those Kutana pants? My buddy was just telling me was looking to use that plus the chugach for his rain gearIn no particular order. I am a gear ho and it’s hard for one thing to stick out but these have really impressed me:
1) Kuiu Kutana pants - just wow. Light, durable, ventilated. Love the pocket layout too.
2) 3.6-18x44 Mark 5HD. A scopes job is to steer bullets and this one does so in style. Never been more confident in a rifle now that I have this optic.
3) Outdoorsmans Pistol Grip/Panner on a Slik CF633. Revolutionized how I glass coming from nothing and a KDC setup. The KDC setup is slick as heck but this is just next level.

I’ve done it both ways. Dry with tp or just pull up and let it all dry out natural. I wear synthetic underwear (ex officio) that handles the moisture fine. It’s not as much water as you’d think and I too have an ample undercoat. I use a Smart Water bottle or a Platypus bladder to expel the water. The trick is when you pull your pants down only go to the knees. Makes the geometry work so you don’t get stuff wet. It really has made a ton of difference
Roger that! Thanks for the knowledge. I’ve still never dabbled into the kuiu product line. But I’m constantly looking and interested to try some outI was talking about the Kutana Stretch Woven pants, not the Kutana Rain pants. They shouldn’t have called them the same thing. The DWR is good on them, but they are not waterproof. But everything I’ve heard about the rain pants is great.
