Styles change, but you'll always need a great hoody. The INTERCEPTR men's hoody looks stylish and feels incredibly comfortable. It features ALFPACA GOLD performance fleece and KASHMIRA side panels for unmatched softness, warmth and durability. This hoody can take you from lounging around to hitting the ground running with its inspired mix of innovation and performance. Try on your new favorite fleece hoody, and never go out of style.
The interceptr lineup has nice and soft kashmira fleece on the inside, its warm but it doesn't trap in too much heat. Also, the knitting makes it pretty wind resistant, surprising for a fleece. However, while it goes well over a silky shirt like the response or bandit, I don't recommend wearing it over a shirt that has courser fabric even like the shiftr, because the fleece balls up and sheds onto the shirt. Perhaps if the design team comes up with a reversible version, one that will have kashimira on one side and the knit on the other, then it would be a definite favorite for all as it would be more versatile and would taylor to everyones needs and work with all layers, one way or another with all shirts.
Pricey, but well worth it. Comfortable and adaptable. I am 5”10” and 165 lb, medium fits well, a hair snug, but not restricting when active. Reasonably wind resistant for a fleece. And nice weight for medium activities like walking and hiking. Breathes well. And good fits welllallowing visibility but adding warmth when needed. When not in use I don’t notice hood.
We do not have a store around our area that sells Kuhl, I have to pay extra on shipping and trust that the sizing works. I completely love my cool gear and worth the extra effort of ordering online and paying shipping charges. I’d probably purchase even more if there was a local joint. Thanks Kuhl!!
I own 2 interceptors and my wife owns 1 as well; one hooded and two without. All three fit well and we like the flexed elbow cut of the arms. The breast zippered pockets on either side open into large pocket space. No problem storing a big cell phone or small tablet in the breast pockets. Our main problem is the unacceptable pilling. Even with gentile use these interceptors will pill. Noticing that pilling was happening at a wild rate on my first Interceptor, I folded my 2nd and 3rd garment inside out for washing and still the pilling progressed.
This is such a valued piece of gear. It's warm,has great pockets that fit large phone,and to top it off,looks casual enough to go out to dinner. The only thing I'd wish for is a cinch at the bottom opening to block wind but it's not so bad that I'd even deduct a star. I am getting a lot of use out of it already. Well done,Kuhl!
This is an awesome jacket. The fit is on point, the features are just what I look for in a jacket. The only thing I could say that was not as advertised is that the charcoal color is a very dark brown color, not a dark grey, so it was a surprise when I received the jacket. But it is a very good color none the less. I am wearing it now as I am typing the review. I love it!
Bought 3 different styles for month in Europe. Perfect for travel - the one with zippered pockets really great in Barcelona known for pick pockets as well as a spectacular city. I could live here with the 3? Slacks and one pair of shorts for a long time without needing any other pants or shorts! Kuhls are cool!
