I know a lot of you are moving to Kuiu but has anyone tried the Cloudburst out yet? If so what do you think?
I asked if the Dewpoint or the Cloudburst was Paclite he said no. He said polyester or nylon depending on which garment(I know that is what Paclite is made of). He said the rainproof rating was 28000 mm but would not give a breathabilty rating. I plan on wearing this, if needed, over my Jetstream vest and or jacket. Thanks again.
I think the guy was confused. This is what Sitka told me:
"Thanks for contacting us. The Dew Point is an upgrade of the Stormfront
Lite series. Still incorporating Gore-tex Paclite it has a more durable
face fabric and weighs the same."
It also looks, smells, and acts like Paclite. I don't have the tags anymore, but unless it some kind of new secret type of Gore-Tex that just happens to look exactly like Paclite....
I real life, it's a couple oz lighter than the old Lite series.
