One look at the KÜHL W’s SPYFIRE® PARKA 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.
Designed with a 3D brim and multiple adjustments on both the opening and the rear hatband, the signature 5-panel hood provides a custom fit for superior comfort and warmth. When you don’t need it, the hood lays flat.
The W’s SPYFIRE PARKA features 2 reverse coil hand pockets with custom zipper pulls and an inside mesh pocket. Tested to more than 10K pulls, the Metaluxe™ center front zipper looks like metal at one-third the weight and features ergonomic KÜHL crest zipper pull. Custom reflective ribbon below the zippers prevents snags and increases visibility in the dark. Hitting below the hip, the W’S SPYFIRE PARKA provides full coverage and superior warmth.
The precision 3D fit naturally follows your body’s shape, and the intricate construction eliminates binding typically found on the inside seams of jackets. Built with different sized baffles, the W’s SPYFIRE PARKA boasts superior warmth where you need it. The large baffles at the body front and back provide core warmth, while the smaller baffles on the side panels provide a contoured fit and reduce bulk for better layering under a heavier shell.

KÜHL® User Reviews
I've had this coat a little over a year now and it is the best! I live in NYC and wear it almost daily in the fall/winter/early spring (October - April) so it's already been through months of use. I love it so much, I bought my husband the male version and am considering another color for myself. I wear a size 4 in pants but have broad shoulders. The small was just a tad too snug through the bust. The medium is perfect. I can wear it over a sweater. Pros: - It's SO lightweight and thin but also so warm. How?!?! It must be magic - Versatile in different temperatures - It's not too hot if it's mild outside (50s in the NYC fall) but also very warm when it's cold (just came in from the 15 degree NYC winter and was nice and warm) - Figure flattering. I never thought a winter coat could look so stylish or show that I have a figure, but this one does. - Durable. It still looks new and it's been through 1.5 winters and a pregnancy - I can put it in my purse instead of using coat check if I want. It's very thin and folds well. Cons: - Can't think of any
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: Thanks so much for the thoughtful comments. For aerobic activity, you will want to try the Firefly. Same construction is used, same fit; different temperature profile for when you are producing heat from being active.

I am 5’3” and around 112 lbs. I found the XS to be perfect but definitely a snug fit if wearing a shirt plus sweater or a shirt plus sweatshirt. If you want to layer mor49e than that, size up. The snug fit was not in a bad way, just fitted especially along hips with 2 layers. The arms and shoulders were roomy even with layers. Stylish, super light and comfy but pretty warm too. No bulk or noise that other puffy coats have. I stayed with the XS.

I tried this jacket on and loved the quality and styling! It is so flattering, which you never find in down jackets. Unfortunately, I am larger than an XL :( It does not seem to be produced in 1X or 2X, which is a big mistake. There would be a HUGE market for a stylish down jacket.

Very cute jacket, I expected for the price and 800 fill it would be warmer. It was 19 degrees out this morning and just walking from my car into the building i was very cold. Definitley will need to find a warmer coat.

Can I say this coat is the Best I looked for months trying to find the perfect coat and I FOUND IT SPYFIRE !!! Warm no bulk luv the no hands pocket getting a lot of compliments I was going for the Canada goose warm but to muck bulk. Also pjar nice but too bulky ! I got just what I wanted light form fitting and no bulk true to size I wear 6 bought a small-- perfect!
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: Spyfire is remarkably warm! You are correct! For a small, light down sweater jacket with form fitting panels, the design must be accomplishing so much more than meets the eye for the warmth it preserves of our body heat. This is surely a home run for KUHL design and our customers. Thank you for your feedback!

As soon as I tried it on I knew this was the one! I tried Canada Goose and Parajumper but the quality and the down factor of 800 had me sold! Fit is perfect and the material feels nice against the skin. Would highly recommend.
