You’ve already come to expect the best from Kuiu, and they have done it again. Kuiu has created a line of outwear called Super Down. The Super Down line uses a down called Quixdown, which has been modified with a durable, water-repellent finish that allows the down to resist absorption. Check out this video of Jason from Kuiu explain and demonstrate the water-repellent Quixdown.
We stopped by the Kuiu booth at the SCI Hunter’s Convention this week to check out the new Super Down line and shake the bottle for ourselves. The new Super Down Hooded Jacket is so light, that you don’t believe it can be true, until you put it on. The jacket weighs only 10 ounces and is filled with 2.5 ounces of Torray Quixdwn. The jacket and the Zip-T (7 ounces) come in the Verde Camo, as well as Gun Metal (black).
The Super Down line also includes the Super Down Pant, which weighs a mere 10 ounces, and includes full leg zips, so you can take the pants on and off without taking off your boots. The pants can be zipped down to ventilate, and they line up with the zippers on the rest of Kuiu’s pants (Guide Pant, Chugach Pant, and the new Attack Pant).
Check out the new Super Down line for yourself. There is more information available at Kuiu.com, and we will feature a more in-depth review this year, so stay tuned.
