Facebook LIVE (Archive) – Jason Reviews His Sheep Kit for BC
KUIU Founder Jason Hairston goes over his gear list for his upcoming BC Stone Sheep hunt, and answers questions in this archived Facebook Live.
Great video thanks
Hello Jason and thank you for the great information, I was wondering if there’s an ETA on when the prototype food bags (teaser) shown in this video may become available?
Please can you clarify what tripod you’re using for the optics including the head?
I am a new hunter in Colorado with a mountaineering background. Going for elk with my bow for the first time. I bought the Teton rain jacket and the camo T shirt, both in verde 2.0. All my other gear will be what I already own for when I climb. I love my Prana Zion pant, and TNF down belay jacket. I will hash tag Kuiu on Instagram and probably add a little review at some point after my trip. I am already impressed about the weight and fit of the Teton rain jacket, I really hope this is quality mountain gear.
is the third video for the rifle build coming out soon?
I have now watched 4 of these videos having never come across them before. a few comments. 1. really sad to find out that he has passed away. Seems like a great bloke who not only formed an awesome company but lived it as well. Hard to find that out there where a CEO actually uses their own products in the wild! He also explains things really well and the experience comes through in the way he describes the items so well done! 2. can you get this stuff in Australia and where from?
When will the prototype food bags be available?
Are those base layer pants boot top length? Thanks
How long until we can get our hands on those super down pants. I’m waiting to get the jacket until the pants are available.
If only I had an extra 40-60k laying around for a hunt like this. Great for you, Jason, I’m sure you get a good deduction for these amazing hunts you go on. Good for you. Love your products.
I really wish they would make new videos like this. I understand without Jason it’s going to hard to do but I really enjoyed this and would like to see how much they’ve changed.
Oh and another thing and this is especially for dry arid conditions where water supply isn’t a thing. Portable water from air systems would be an awesome idea..
What bag is that
Can you do a fall, Mule deer pack list?
just curious with the rifle, i followed the ultimate sheep rifle build and it came in at 5lbs 6oz. why not go with the kimber mountain ascent? It comes in at 4lbs 13oz in the same caliber.
So far you guys have yet to disapoint! Your total pack weight amazes me. I have been doing long distance back pack trips for years and never been able to get to such comfortable weight with that much gear. I am curious when the R evolution boot will be available again?
..Pain meds, eighth of hippie lettuce..
Whatta got $20,000 WORTH OF GEAR !
How do I get notified of these live videos? I am subscribed and have "alerts" selected, but I dont see them until I happen to log onto youtube. Is there a way to get an email ahead of time or something?
Curious how much does all the gear itself cost minus the food & gun?
You guys should make a kuiu spotting scope bag that will hold a 65mm scope….
Saw your high fence California black tail. Weeeeeek. Your not breaking no brush.
IMO the super down just doesn’t have enough fill. There’s a lot of hunters who would agree.
I’ve laughed at my hunting buddies who have spent thousands of dollars on Sitka gear. The Kuiu bus came to town and now I’m in deep. Looking forward to testing your gear this year. Great video.
what caliber did you choose for your rifle
When will the 240 vest be available?
Awesome vid! Love the passion behind your company. I recently purchased your guide pants and guide jacket with a merino 210 zip for a November Montana region 7 deer hunt. After watching this video im thinking I should have went with one of your lighter lines?
Great video. Love the breakdown and Q&A. Interested in what optics you’re running for this hunt, and your sheep hunts in general?
Great stuff man
Great video and explanations ! Are you Guys gonna open an European outlet in the near future ? Good luck for your BC Sheep Hunt !
are the frames for teh icon pro and ultra interchangable? or are they two different frame systems?
The Attack Gloves look like a great addition to any load-out. I am very interested in this product and please communicate the details when available.
where did he get the scope dipped in kuiu vias?
Cant seem to find your arm warmers on the site anywhere 🙁
Miss that guy
Could you please let me know what make of bipod that is?
Yes, I’m counting everything I haul. My food needs are .6kg/day for a mountain hunt compared to your .9kg/day.
I imagine we’re hunting similar conditions because alpine Tahr habitat in NZ experiences the same treacherous varied conditions (NZ’s changeable mountain weather is notorious worldwide along with it’s extreme hunting. Having been in alpine BC you would get colder situations at times though.)
Base weight for me is 5kg and much of your gear shown is similar to what we’d carry ie. NeoAir, light down bags. Key systems where we’d save weight is in using Dyneema packs (for example the Hyperlight Mountain Gear equivalent to the 60L bag you show is nearly a kilo lighter and my cuben tarp for 2 people with room for cooking weighs in at 340grams)
I’d also save grams for example by using more thin layers instead of thicker mid-layers.
I really do appreciate what you and Kuiu gear are doing because for too long hunting gear has been overweight. Keep it up . . . and the process for me has also involved rationalising and getting more efficient . . . but rather than go through individual items/choices we could more freely communicate if you made contact to my email: email@example.com
Note: I am not an outfitter and not selling any gear. Am just an avid alpine hunter. Come on down to NZ, hunt some public land . . . walk in and out.
So much sodium in those mountain house. Almost no even worth the amount of water you need to drink to flush it. Try making some of your own.
Love the gear videos you do. What caliber of rifle do you use for these 600 yard shots? Best wishes for a great hunt!
Great video. What would this package run without the rifle and optics? I’m sitting down , but I know it’s worth the money .
what kind of bipod and bipod mount is jason using?
Does anyone have the part numbers for the solar panel and battery packs that he was using?
Cheers for putting up the vid.
That’s still a lot of weight when you quote 40pounds for a shorter 10 day trip, and that’s still excluding your optics & rifle! Perhaps the term ‘ultralight’ is incorrectly used here as the general outdoor pursuits definition considers much less base weight and ‘skin-out’ weight.
By way of comparison for your sheep hunting in BC at similar altitudes (depending on seasonal range) truer ltralight alpine Tahr hunters in NZ would go quite a bit lighter, including optics.
KUIU gear is gaining some traction down here in NZ and rightfully so – well done. However, there are lighter more robust options that suit hunters IMHO
Good luck on your hunt Jason!
I’m very impressed with your brand. I’m a solo hunter/ fisherman moving to Alaska from Missouri and Louisiana. I usually build my bags and gear, but finding you is like seeing what I build for myself. Plus you have better fabric than what I can find. I would like to see more military patters in your gear and clothing line. Multicam pattern colors, ie Alpine, Tropical, Black and Arid. A few new one’s no ones talking about is the Oceans blue and Waters Edge. When I’m hunting, I don’t want to seen, heard and even smelled by man or animal. I would like to see scent control not only in what I wear but what I sleep and camp in. I would like to see 4 season, 2 4 6 man blackout tents with a scent control and light disciple built into the fabric with maybe Gor-Tex with all Multicam patters. There is so much more that I would like to share, but I don’t want to give away stuff on a open form.
Not sure if he mentioned it, but what caliber is the rifle. Great video as usual! So helpful for my packing/planning on my hunts in the mountains.
Great video – always interested in items that are left out of this gear list. What do you do for: Stove and Fuel, Water bottle, Water filter system?? etc…
