I sold my sitka gear for a set of yukons. The yukons will be better in the waterproof department, the timberline maybe more comfy climbing mountains? I'd choose kuiu for hunting on kodiak any day

I used the Timberlines sheep hunting last year. They are a very comfortable pant with a tighter athletic fit but are a little short lengthwise for someone over 6'. I used them with the Sitka gaiters and had no complaints at all but I agree the Yukons would be a little better in the waterproof department.

I have quite a bit of Kuiu gear, and I having nothing but good things to say about it. Only negative is that alot of things are often backordered on their site.

I have the timberlines and love them, super comfortable. Only thing I dislike about them is the front pockets, they are not easy to stick a big hand into. I have no experience with kuiu, but I hear it's legit. I don't think you'll go wrong either way.

I have the Yukon pants and have sat in pouring rain on my knees and rear without ever getting wet. They're tough, waterproof, and fairly comfy. They're not the best for hiking long distances, but amazing in Kodiak weather. I'll be taking mine to Kodiak in November for a goat / deer hunt.

Just ordered a pair of Kuiu Yukon pants. Had a hard time parting with 310.00 but I did it. Hope they get to me in 3 weeks!!!! Thanks to everyone for the help.

KUIU is pretty fast on shipping. I would bet you se your pants in about 5 days.
