One look at the KÜHL SPYFIRE™ ULTRALIGHT DOWN JACKET and you'll realize it's different by design and construction 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.
Four 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. The front panel features two layers for added durability.
Built with different sized baffles, the SPYFIRE JACKET boasts superior warmth where you need it. 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 researched down jackets for about four months before I bought one. I first ended up buying an ultra-lightweight down jacket, but tore a hole in the fabric around the third time I wore it. Then I saw Kuhl made a lightweight down jacket. It is truly one of the finest down jackets I've worn. First, it fits right. What I mean by that is that it has broad shoulders, good fit around the torso (not "relaxed" like some) and is just right in arm and torso length. Additionally, the collar doesn't hit my when the wind catches it or I turn my head - I really like that. Second, it looks really good. It doesn't look like a puffy jacket. Third, it is reinforced where it needs to be, adding a ruggedness to the shell. I get really positive comments about this jacket, and it is my go-to down jacket now. I haven't gotten rid of my ultra-light just yet, but I haven't worn it since I got the SpyFire either.

Just recently I found Kuhl clothing and have already purchased 8 jackets, vests and hoodies. This Spyfire jacket fits true to size, has excellent lines and is comfortable. Once I got this Spyfire I gave away my other down jacket. This one allows me full range of movement without any binding whatsoever. There is sufficient room for me to wear a Kuhl vest or sweater underneath for layering. I also like that it completely blocks the wind. I wear this when hiking or doing outside workouts. One of my female friends liked mine so much that she bought a small Man's size because she preferred the Men's Spyfire design over the Women's. Especially she wanted the dual chest pockets.

After a lot of looking at all competition, I settled on this jacket. Ironically, it was the first down jacket I tried on at a local REI. After having used it on a few backpacking trips I can't rave enough about this jacket. The fit, features, durability, weight, warmth, water resistance, and breathability are all 10 out of 10. I'm 5'8" and 165lbs. A medium was just perfect for me with plenty of room to layer, but yet not at all bulky to slide over my Kuhl shell layer during heavy rain, or for extra protection. The biggest selling factor for me is how durable the material is around the shoulders. This makes backpacking with it a breeze and worry free of damage by my pack. Over all, this is the kind of jacket you can wear around town during cold weather, or deep into a backpacking trip. While I opt to take my bigger parka when seeing temps fall below 0, I would still feel protected taking this along with some other vital layering pieces.

Very pleased with my Spyfire Jacket.\nDesigned for functionality and style.\nWorn as outerwear or under bulkier garments,it offers comfort and effective warmth where and when you need it
The jacket was a little lighter than expected, but cut nicely.
Great quality in every sense. Fabrics, zippers, you name it. The form and cut is outstanding. Love this jacket. I use it all the time in winter, spring and fall.
It's was a gift
Really enjoy it. The fit is great, very slimming despite a big warm coat. The neck is not as fitting, but it works great with a scarf. Breathes well and I wore it in and out of the stores while shopping over the weekend.
Excellent product design, construction, shape & fit. Fast delivery, fine service.
