Dixon, CA (July. 22nd 2021) – KUIU, the leading manufacturer of ultralight performance hunting gear, is proud to announce the release of their redesigned Chugach TR Rain Gear Series. This line, available now, is the brand’s latest offering of highly breathable, packable rain gear for ultralight hunting. This new and improved streamlined design offers lower weight/bulk when packed, and with the addition of TORAIN technology the waterproofing, durability, and breathability have increased making for the perfect set of packable rain gear for unsupported backcountry hunts.
The Torain Waterproof System combines a spandex-free Primeflex face fabric with a highly breathable Dermizax HDM microporous hydrophobic membrane and circular knit backer, too, ultimately, keep the wearer dry and more comfortable while on the hunt. With these updates the Chugach TR Rain Gear is 20% higher in tear strength, 400% stronger in abrasion resistance, and 20% reduction in overall fabric weight compared to the previous version.
“By incorporating this new TORAIN waterproofing technology into our Chugach TR Rain Gear, we were able to successfully increase the strength and abrasion resistance to ultimately create a line of rain gear that is more waterproof, stronger, and lighter than ever before,” comments Kevin Wilkerson Senior Director of Brand Marketing. “Our goal with the Chugach line has been to reduce the weight of the product while upgrading the breathability, waterproofness, and durability to ensure it meets the needs for those high demand backcountry hunts.”
