One look at the KÜHL SPYFIRE® HOODY and you realize it's different by design, construction and features than any other down sweater that has come before it. The SPYFIRE SERIES combines unique fabrics, precision design, and thermal body mapping to deliver technical performance and unparalleled style.
Three unique fabrics differentiate the SPYFIRE SERIES, and each fabric is engineered for a specific purpose. The water resistant and windproof shell is sourced from a superior Japanese mill that uses a 20 denier, 24 high filament nylon fabric for a softer feel and higher tear strength. The yarn is woven into an extremely tight weave that’s dense enough to increase the down proof-ness and tear strength. Strategically placed self-overlay on body front and sleeves provides extra protection from the elements.
The soft shell reinforced fabric on the shoulders allows you to carry skis or equipment with sharp edges that would shred any ordinary down sweater. Lightweight underarm knit panels allow heat to escape for better climate control and comfort in a wide range of temperatures. The ethically sourced (non-force-fed/not ‘live-plucked’) 800-fill goose down provides a superior warmth-to-weight ratio.
The SPYFIRE HOODY features 2 zippered chest pockets, 2 zippered hand pockets, 1 zip pocket on the sleeve, and an inside mesh pocket. Custom reflective ribbon below the zippers prevents snags and increases visibility in the dark.
Built with different sized baffles, the SPYFIRE HOODY boasts superior warmth where you need it. The thinner, sized-down baffles on the inside underarm panels provide a contoured fit and reduce bulk for better layering under a heavier shell. The precision 3D fit naturally follows your body’s shape, and the intricate construction eliminates binding typically found on the inside seams of jackets.

KÜHL® User Reviews
I walked into REI, and grabbed every down jacket they had in my size. After I tried on all of them I settled on a North Face jacket. When I was making my way to the registers, I saw this jacket in the corner, picked it up, tried it on and that was it! I had to have it. It had every feature I wanted: form fitting, so I could wear under my marmot snow jacket, hood, upper sleeve pocket and lightweight. and the fit was amazing. I didn’t even look at the brand or the price, I just walked up and bought it. When I got home i thought oh shit what did I just buy for $260! But as I read about the company, I felt a lot better. I go trail running year round, and when I’m up by Mt. Hood in the winter it can get really cold. This jacket does an amazing job at keeping me warm when I’m standing still, and not too warm when running. The other thing I’ve noticed is that if I do take it off, it stays tied around my waist really tightly and when I put it back on I’m warm in less than a minute. And the hood, when sinched to your head will stay in place. It won’t fly off at the fist gust of wind. I also use this jacket as my day to day commute jacket. I carry a backpack with me at all times. The down has yet to be squished down by the straps of my bag. This jacket is truly worth every penny. And it’s ethically sourced which is amazing.

I lifewore my spyfire hoody in 15 degrees weather and only a short sleeve t shirt underneath and didn’t feel any cold. The only cold I felt were the area not covered by my kuhl jacket. My north face can’t keep me that warm.

I have had all the major mountain gear jackets and this jacket is every bit if not better design and build than all of the big boys (North Face / Mountain Hardware /Patagonia ) which I have and I find myself wearing the Kuhl every time! Great jacket highly recommend !!
