    I can't make it up but if I could I would go with cotton pants and a down jacket cause I'm a risk taker

    Man... Sitka is SO 2010. Get with the program man. They don't even make sleeping bags. KUIU down the line.

    Although I understand Barney's Super Cub jackets are acceptable substitute on these kind of formal occasions if your KUIU is still backordered.

    That reminds me of the Anchorage AC elections a few years back. There was a really contentious set of issues and candidates, so folks were out in force from a number of different orgs. The approved list of candidates was being handed out by both sides - the people in camo were being hit up by one side, the folks in Patagonia from another. I might have missed one or two others, but as I watched I'm pretty sure I was the only person in the place that wasn't handed a list of who to vote for. I guess they couldn't place me - no camo, no hemp...what to do with that guy?

    I believe I was at that one also. Lots of camo and the issue was with SFW.....

    Back on the subject- My old Filson pants look like they have made their own camo, from all the blood and mud as well as my "dryazabone " oil skin parka from Australia. Just learn to be still and become part of your cover. Good gear dose not wear out. Hell I still wear L.L. Bean pack boots. Works for me.

    Another "trick" for us that do not have $ for asian made camo. gear- you can just take what you have and do your own design with urethane spray paint cans - black-brown-white-green-ect. Have done this on Louisiana shotguns, Alaska rafts, rain gear- Trick is get it real clean first then use alcohol To clean the sprayed area- personal I like to use Russian vodka as the cleaner. Lot easier to get friends to help on the rafts!!!
    Works for me-
