Maybe consider Kryptek cadog or njord. Cadog if your hunting style is more active. They have a pretty big line of jackets and there may be one more comparable to the guide jacket than what I recommended.
Guide jacket isn’t a very good jacket in my opinion. It’s not waterproof, not windproof and very heavy(especially when wet). I would search for another option. Not bagging on kuiu as I have a decent amount of their gear, just the Guide jacket isn’t a good piece in my opinion. If you really want one, wait for a good price on a used one as they get listed here in the classifieds quite often. Just my 2 cents.
Guide jacket sucks. it gets wet, wind blows right through it.....soft shell jackets are pointless.
i run a yukon rain jacket and arteryx puffy year round. from spring bear, august sheep hunt to November whitetail.
Take a look at Cabellas Lookout fleece soft shell. It Doesn't have pit zips and other fancy features, but it blocks the wind better & will stay dry a little longer. Kuiu's Guide jacket is not very good. The Axis & Sitkas jet stream are much better, but more expensive.
