Guide DCS Jacket
The guides’ choice for breathable wind and weather protection
The KUIU Guide DCS Jacket is made with a Primeflex® 274g/m2 4-Way Stretch Soft Shell fabric. The face fabric is treated with Toray's industry leading Kudos® DWR & has a micro-fleece backer for warmth and comfort. This piece is built to be a rugged, all-purpose outer layer for colder conditions- although the athletic cut allows it to fit well beneath raingear when the weather calls for it. Six pockets, pit zips, adjustable cuffs, 2-way adjustable hood, and an inner collar make this KUIU’s most feature-rich outer layer jacket.

Primeflex™ by Toray
A Key Ingredient to Losing Four Pounds
Primeflex fabrics feature a patented spiral yarn technology that allows the yarn to stretch and recover without using heavy, water-absorbing elastics such as Lycra®. The result is more comfortable, higher-performance Primeflex fabrics that weigh about 40 percent less than comparable traditional fabrics.

Toray’s Kudos® XR DWR
Kudos® XR DWR (Durable Water-Repellent)
Kudos XR DWR performs better and lasts significantly longer than conventional DWR. DWR is critical for waterproof breathable face fabric. If DWR fails the face fabric “wets out” causing condensation build up on the inside of the garment.
