I ordered a small, and it fit like an XS. I wear size small in all of KUHL items, so this was a huge disappointment. Since I had removed the tags and the return policy is so strict, I am stuck with this non-fitting item.
I got a flight vest as a present three years ago and wore it all the time to keep warm in a cold Atlantic Canadian winter. Put off buying more because the colour selection was so limited on the Kuhl Canada web site. Finally, I gave in and purchased two more through the US site, paying a stiff premium with duties and taxes and currency exchange. I have probably paid the most ever for two flight vests from Kuhl and still love them and think they're great quality. Warm, stylish, great colours, and fleece wears and washes well.
everything I have in the Kuhl brand is such amazing quality! It fits well and is flattering! I work weekends at a feedlot and its perfect when your stuck outside in bipolar weather... raining one min than sun beaming down... I can keep my light Kuhl layers on and not be to hot or cold! I have working Kuhl and dress up Kuhl cause I seriously want to wear it all the time! Thank you!!! I have lots of pics I could share ;)
This vest replaced a vest which started to wear away - unfortunately it was discontinued (sales told me others had the same issue) and this new style was the only one I could get as a replacement - cost more but has more features. Seems ok - arrived just as cold weather ended so I may have further commented TS after I actually get to wear it!
I love the big collar and design lines on this vest. The fabric is really soft and it's so comfortable. Roomy zip secured pockets. Highly recommended. I have the flight jacket in a different colour and can't fault either.
I love the fleece, it is very soft and the colour Raven is rich and beautiful. The reason I gave it a 3 is because of the fit - I ordered an XS, my usual size, which fits through the body (as long as I have a fleece shirt underneath, otherwise it is a bit big) but the length was not adjusted for an XS. Instead of hitting at my hip it hits just above crotch level. I am just under 5’3” and have to fold it under at the bottom in order to get the right proportion. It is also not snug around the neck which comes up to my bottom lip, so it gets in the way and is bulky underneath a jacket. Writing this review I wonder now why I kept it, especially because it is quite expensive. If it was sized for a petite person I would be happier with this purchase. The quality is good though.
Soft, cozy and stylish. I love the pocket details and zip-in hood. Have already had plenty of occasion to wear this and I've only had it a week! Sized up for length but even at a larger size than normal the cut is still flattering.
I love this is recently bought it at a ski resort and never heard of the brand before. I saw it and drove an hour to get it a week later on a whim. It is literally my favorite item of clothing right now and that's strong words for me haha. I'm trying to be minimalistic with clothing and not buy so much but it's amazing!! So happy with it, worth the money!! Love the rustic natural look of it. Literally the fuzziest thing ever and I don't want to take it off haha.
My husband bought this vest for me last Christmas & I love it! I get compliments every time I wear it. I recently saw the burgundy and the blue and plan to purchase both. It’s very warm to be so light weight. I have to admit, when he gave it to me, I really wanted a Patagonia but once I wore it the first time, I fell in love. I haven’t had any of the seatbelt matting issues that others have had.
I fell in love with this vest and have lived in it since I purchased it two weeks ago. However, I sadly had no idea the effect my seat belt would have on the fleece... It has indeed created a stripe across my chest where the fur is matted down. I wish I would've known this (the website I purchased it from didn't have a review about it) and I'm very disappointed. Aside from that though, it really is a beautiful vest; supreme comfort, great style & fit.
Bought this vest because it was stylish and warm. The very first time I wore it, the material wore down in one specific location: where my seat belt strap crosses my chest. My seat belt strap is in excellent condition: no frays, no snags, nothing sharp on it. But with fleece of this kind, the pressure and sliding of the belt was enough to ruin the fabric. It tried washing it and gently brushing the material, but it's ruined in that one spot, right in front of my body. It's a shame because I loved this vest when I tried it on. At this price point, this should never happen!
My husband bought this vest for me for Christmas last year, and I loved it! Unfortunately, after 2 or 3 weeks, the vest looked horrible! I'm embarrassed to wear it now. The soft fur is all matted down where my purse straps touched the jacket. I guess if you don't plan on using a purse or backpack when you wear this vest, the fur won't mat.
I saw this and immediately loved it. It was expensive and completely unnecessary and I had no justification for purchasing it. But I went for it and bought it cuz I just LOVED it. That was 1-2 years ago(?). I wear this this EVERY DAY weather permitting. I have gotten so much use out of something I thought I had no need for. It's so stylish and practical. It fits well over whatever I'm wearing and fits well layered under other outerwear. I get so many compliments on it. True, it doesn't look just like it does when I first bought it - it is lovingly worn, but just as awesome in my book and still gets loads of compliments. I can't say enough good things about this. One of my most satisfied purchases ever.
LOVE this vest for looks, warmth, versatility. Stylish, cozy, goes with everything.
BUT BUT BUT... The fleece is AWFUL. The note on details page is very true. Seatbelts and backpack straps will flatten the fleece and destroy it. Hopefully Kuhl can find an equally nice-looking and performance fabric next year that stands up to activities and still looks good. Lots of fleece options out there from the competition -- so this is more fashion than anything else. You have to take it off to wear a seatbelt or backpack, otherwise it well get destroyed. Can't even go XC skiing wearing this under a jacket and using a pack over the jacket without it getting ruined.
Expected more from you guys. Kuhl needs to up their fleece game.
I bought this vest a year ago, and it took a while for me to realize what was happening with the matting. The little note about the premium fleece is no joke... maybe that note wasn't there a year ago, or maybe I didn't read it a year ago, or maybe I didn't take it seriously a year ago. But I have a full-on stripe across my chest where my seatbelt lives. I love, love, love this vest, and in SC's mild winters, it's really the perfect weight. But unfortunately not wearing it in the car really defeats the purpose of owning it for me. I would recommend it highly to anyone who doesn't often wear seatbelts, but I'd caution a car-dweller against it. It's fabulously soft, it's superbly comfortable, and it fits me like a perfectly-sized glove. I LOVE it. Except for the stripe of matting, which is unfortunately a big deal.
My husband bought this vest for my son's girlfriend for Christmas. She loved it. When she went back to college, two of her friends loved it so much they ordered them one. It's a great look for casual or dressy. Now I want one!
