Anybody used there Teton rain gear? I'm thinking about buying the rain pants.
Looks like they are on a great sale. I have the Chugatch after some cheap stuff shredded on a 12-day horseback trip. It has not let me down.
I have all the other sets, but not the Teton...
I have the Teton set. It is fine for an afternoon shower in elk country but that is about it. I feel like it would shred under any serious use. If it's priced right and you only need it for passing showers then go for it, otherwise I would save up for the Chugach.
I have it and agree with Brotsky. Great for keeping a lightweight packable set with you, but for anything beyond that, would definitely not be my choice. It is very thin. Essentially it has a purpose and serves it IMO.
I agree with the previous 2 posts. I have every set of rain gear Kuiu makes. I would rate the Teton as a half step above Cabelas space rain (which I also own). The Teton packs small and light and is great for September in the lower 48 mountains, but I would not want to count on it for a trip where I was expecting significant rain.
Nice enough stuff, but not made for the hard core daily use. Use it as it’s intended and it will serve you well.

So for Sitka Alaska, I am thinking the Chugatch, for a November deer hunt, would this be a good choice? Sorry, don't mean to hijack the post!
just buy Yukon and be done with it.

Yukon is definitely the most durable but it is also heavy and bulky compared to others.
I have both the top and bottom. They have served me well hunting and fishing. But I would suspect if I was bush whacking through tough stuff they would not be the right choice as others have said. All depends on your needs.
I would disagree with bou, if you are only gonna buy one buy the Chugach. I use my Yukon the least of the bunch. If i was buying 1)Chugach 2)Teton 3)Yukon, in that order. But also as stated above, it ALL depends on what you are planning to use it for.
