I feel like KUHL gear was tailor made specifically for me, from the fit and functionality to the earth tone rustic colors they use (I really appreciate this). I found this jacket at REI by mistake, and I'm glad I did. I went in looking for a shell for fly fishing, but ended up spending my money on this jacket when I saw it. I'm 5' 10" 170lb 31" pant size, very athletically built. I wear M and L depending on the item. I went with Medium on this, and it fits perfectly. Enough shoulder room, when it's fully zipped up it doesn't choke me or feel restrictive, and the sleeve length is perfect. The pockets are enormous, and that's awesome. The Medium for me fits in the waist area perfectly, although I don't need to cinch it tighter, its pretty slim in that area. If I were to get a large, I would find the cinch cording more useful. I have the steel color, and it looks a lot better in person as usual. I think I'll purchase another one, except in a Large, for fly fishing. I also tried on the Double Kross in a Large....will be purchasing that next... The 'problem' with KUHL is I can't stop replacing all my clothes with their apparel! It started with their pants, and it spiraled out of control from there. Thank you KUHL.

I really like this jacket. It is thick and soft and just wonderfully comfortable and warm as can be but alas, it is too short for my 6' 4" frame so I almost never wear it. It is sadly relegated to wearing around the house because if it wear it out and about it is too drafty. I have worn it on occasion underneath a shell and as an insulator it is fantastic but I really wish I could wear it on a regular basis. I would absolutely recommend it for anyone say, 6'1" or shorter but for us tall guys I wouldn't bother.

I got this to pair with the Burr and as a stand alone option. I get complements all the time because, this is the best and frankly the most stylish fleece I have ever seen. It is super roomy and the thumb holes work great, although some gloves may be challenging to wear over. I have been walking in an open field with just a t-shirt, this, and a Burr over it and was not at all cold or overly warm. Alone it is breathable enough to wear at moderate temperatures with light wind comfortably. I love the collar because it feels nice even completely zipped. Great work Kuhl.

I have two of these very stylish and highly functional jackets (olive & raven). They are cut a bit more roomy than the Spyfire or Interceptr jackets. Plenty of room to add layers for additional warmth as needed. The fleece and microsuede combined created a powerful look and functions just as well as it looks. For my workouts before sunrise I usually add a Interceptr jacket and sometimes at night I will even add an additional Interceptr vest. If I get too warm I simply take off a layer and continue hiking or working out. The cut allows for good flexibility and movement in all directions. The microsuede adds extra style points and stress protection at the elbows, shoulders and even at the side drawstring areas. This is sharp looking, highly functional jacket.

I have several jackets and shirts from Kuhl now and I love everyone of them. Quality of product is outstanding, style is first class. I especially like the pockets, my iPhone 7s fits perfectly in the chest pockets, this feels better than having to sit in the phone or worry about it falling out of a smaller pocket that other products provide. \n\nIt's funny, I don't have to recommend Kuhl to my friends, the first thing they do is ask who is the manufacturer, and where did I get it!! I wear the shirts and jackets to all occasions, not just skiing or working!\n***
Excellent quality..great fit
Gave as a gift, but I have one just like it. Great jacket to about 25 degrees.
This was also a birthday present! He absolutely loves it, the stitching detail gives this just enough edge, he wears it to work on casual day or out running errands in the cold. He loves the fit!
Very nicely made, as all Kulh stuff is. Since mine is really a size too big, it doesn't fit the way I'd like it to, but that's my fault.
I use the products as the weather dictates, the tops are simply the tops. Smart, comfortable, warm along with looking cool, They can be worn whenever there is no necessity for a suit..
