My Mate has one, and rates it highly. I was going to go with it also, but ended up going with the First Lite Seak Jacket, awesome bit of kit, and after a day of torrential rain in Fiordland while jet boating/hunting I was the only one dry at the end of the day!

The other boys were all wearing Swazi. and took them two days to dry out.

The main reason I went with the First Lite, if it was the wrong size, the Points South guys were more than happy to change it, bit harder when dealing with some one from the states, not to mention the time frame.

Kuiu are top bits of kit though.

Yeah I do, and the pants as well, really like them. Best wet weather gear I have owed, although not as durable. Wouldn't want to spent a few days wearing it in west coast scrub, it'd fair not so well I think.  Sizing is normal.

Don't have the Chugach but the NX. Best rain gear I've owned, spent 8 nights in the Kaimanawas with mostly crappy horrible weather(never dried out) this roar and kept me dry hunt after hunt. It seems to dry out very fast and hold basically no water(just damp) and even if it is damp on the inside it never soaks through to the mid layer. Good rain gear you can get for the likes of the Kaimanawas where everything is wet and rotten and rains every 2nd day. Packs down super small too.
