    I have the Guide in XL and the Yukon in L and it fits over the top excellent, you need to jump on Kuiu on You Tube and have a watch to see what fits the bill, the Yukon is a mean jacket as wind is the killer once your wet and it's 100 bullet proof. The Guide is the go to jacket for everyday use. Comfortable and warm and quiet.

    Only problem with the Guide jacket is it's too nice. Don't want to get it dirty. Wearing mine now sailing.

    At least you can sail, my Utes cooked so I'm stuck here in fn Rotorua!
    I've been wearing mine to town, looking like Rambo.

    I don't sail. Dragged out by the cook. Plenty of beer and chance of fishing sold me.

    Like these guys said, buy the guide jacket in a non camo colour as you'll wear it everywhere it's so plush.

    Yukon jacket for the wet stuff. Waterproof and windproof, packs down into its own hood nice and small. Arm pit heat dump zips, couple pockets. Not the quietest but if you need to wear it the rain will probably be louder than you.

    My only gripe with the Yukon is its quite a short fit, would be perfect if they had a version with something like a split tail to keep your ass dry when you sit down.

    No mention of Sitka yet?

    I find my one pretty good. Dry and comfortable as it breathes very well.

    I like that it comes as a solid color. Not a massive fan of camo.

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    They are expensive but to date the best performing gear I have seen. I went hunting in the rain with a guy who wore his jeans under the waterproof trousers. I said he was nuts... and when we got back his jeans were bone dry....I couldn't believe it.
