Which Kuiu model were you using? I have the Yukon and have had no issues with it. However if you want something cheap and cheerful that will actually keep you dry try and find an unused dpm wet gesr jacket. They are work very well. Just a tad noisy!
Had experience with the brand over the years. They are an absolute nightmare when they give trouble. I actually dont know anyone who had one that gave no trouble. I would never buy one. There is a little value for money to be had with vehicles like that.
