The KÜHL KOLLUSION™ JACKET features a water-resistant / breathable fabric with a polyurethane coating and synthetic wax. This cotton/polyester/nylon blend provides durable yet lightweight protection for three seasons and can be layered with fleece for winter wear.
Designed to shut out the cold, the KOLLUSION JACKET features a full front zipper behind a button close placket. The built-in stowaway hood provides an extra layer of protection when you need it and rolls into the collar when you don't.
KÜHL’s exclusive articulated 5-panel sleeves provide better range of motion. Two button-down chest pockets and two hand pockets with flap enclosures on the top and zippered entry at the side provide secure storage. Contrast stitching adds visual impact to the already stylish KOLLUSION JACKET.

KÜHL® User Reviews
I love this jacket. I have been wearing it day to day and on backwoods guiding trips for over three years and it shows no sign of wear and still gets compliments from strangers. I have guided two winter camping trips this winter (in Canada) and this jacket combined with the Thor 1/4 zip was what I wore. Durable, sharp looking, and reasonably good in rain. Love it.

I've been a big fan Kuhl for over ten years now, and I'm always happy to support an American company that makes such fantastic products. But with stiff competition from other outdoor gear companies, and with Fjallraven making strong and quick inroads in the US market, I think Kuhl could up its game a bit. And this jacket is a great example. The material Kuhl uses on Kollusion (a cotton-poly-nylon blend) is rugged and excellent as is the hardware. I'm a big fan of the Canadian buttons (and I wished more companies used them because they're so rugged and long-wearing). The color selections are excellent as are the fits, which usually run on the trim/small side (which makes it easy to size up and know you won't get extra fabric). The main issue with the Kollusion design is one that greatly impacts its function and practicability: it's designed like a consumer friendly military smock (which I LOVE), but it doesn't have a couple features that make that design great. The first is that the zipper is not two-way. Because the jacket goes to the top of the thighs, you can feel your legs expanding and pushing against the jacket (especially if you have a bigger but and/or thighs). The military smocks always have a two-way zipper so you could have that extra material space to put two bottom front pockets AND still be able to walk/hike around in the jacket without feeling constrained. Without that two-way zipper, you lose both mobility and potential durability of the one-way zipper. The second design issue the Kollusion has is that it has no internal waist drawstring to cinch should you wish to keep warm air from escaping easily from below. You'd think that if you're going to have a longer jacket, you'd think the ample space in between the top and bottom pockets would be maximized by that design feature, but the Kollusion doesn't. Again, this is a feature military smocks always have, and it's very odd that one isn't included in this jacket. The other jacket I've looked at is Fjallraven's Raven jacket, which is VERY similar to the Kollusion. While each company has their own design quirks, Fjallraven kept the basic military smock design (including the two-way zipper and the internal waist cinch) and for that reason it is a superior jacket simply because it maintains a maximally functional design. I'd love to keep the Kollusion, but I'll have to return it. But I write this review in the hope that the Kuhl design team considers some of these issues should they wish to update their already excellent Kollusion model.

Looks, feel and fit tell the whole story.......Have 8-10 jackets and wear this one 75% of the time....Am ready to purchase a second one .....If anyone complains about this jacket......it would be difficult to believe that they would really appreciate the finer highlights of this garment......

I received this jacket as a gift several years ago. I get so many compliments every time I wear it out.

excellent quality and handsome appearance
Jacket is excellent. Fits great and has an athletic fit, which works well for me with my bodybuilder body shape. Plenty of pocket space. This is the perfect travel jacket. It's light enough to wear to warmer areas and easy enough to layer for colder trips. It's very comfortably and looks great. I'll be buying more Kuhl products from now on.
Fit is very good and I love the long enough sleeves! This jacket is like an SUV,,works on the trail or around town.I like Kuh's design style.
We bought a jacket. It is awesome. Love the material and it is very warm. \nI would recommend to friends. \nWe are very satisfied with everything.
Products of great quality.
