KUIU, the manufacturer of performance hunting gear, launched a line of apparel focused on silent movement in cold conditions, engineered with a feature set for treestand hunting.
The Proximity series includes the Proximity Insulated Hooded Jacket and Proximity Insulated Pant,and combines technologies to ensure the wearer is undetected during close encounters with wildlife in cold weather conditions.
Both products are available in KUIU’s Valo, Verde and Vias Camo patterns.
By using proprietary technology, the Proximity Series combines a low-sheen brushed fabric with a wind-resistant SynthaCell foam membrane for increased wind protection and warmth retention.
Key features include a patent-pending removable hood, safety harness port, hand-warmer holders, and pit vents.
Leveraging body-mapped 3DeFX+ insulation, Proximity garments strategically position heavier insulation in more vulnerable areas, with lighter insulation where extra breathability is needed.
The Proximity Jacket fits over a safety harness, insulated mid-layer and base layer. At the same time, its articulated design, high-stretch fabric, and streamlined forearms allow shooting without interference or restricting mobility.
“The Proximity line is a big moment for us. KUIU customers have been requesting products for cold environments with a focus on silence for years, “ said Kevin Wilkerson, VP, brand marketing. “With cold weather whitetail-specific features such as a treestand safety harness port and body-mapped insulation for a streamlined fit, it’s sure to be a hit with bowhunters this fall. As with all KUIU gear, these products have gone through countless hours of research and wear testing to ensure that they’re the best on the market.”
KUIU’s Proximity line was designed with silence, function, comfort, and high-performance features. Additional stand hunting-specific features include full-length leg zippers, dual-entry cargo pockets on the pants and patent-pending removable hood, a safety harness port, hand-warmer holders, and pit vents on the jacket. The line’s articulated design, high-stretch fabric, and streamlined forearms ensure zero shooting interference or restricted mobility.
Both the pants and the jacket include a synthaCell wind-resistant bonded membrane and Toray body-mapped Insulation to ensure the wearer stays warm. Silvadur AM anti-odor treatment helps keep the wearer undetected in the field, and DWR water resistance for protection from precipitation.
