From its beginnings creating Peruvian-inspired ski hats, Kühl now offers a full line of men's and women's clothing. With Kühl, you'll find clothes for all your activities; from mountain-worthy fleece jackets and wool sweaters, to pants and shirts perfect for travel or around town.
In 1983 a small company called Alfwear created a Peruvian-inspired hat design
that would become a wardrobe staple among serious alpine skiers throughout the decade. Alfwear eventually dissolved, but in 1990 one of the original owners, Kevin Boyle, transformed it into the outdoor lifestyle clothing company known as Kühl®.
Today, Kühl, (that's German for "cool') seeks to embody the spirit of active adventurers whose passion for the outdoors runs deep, and who desire quality outdoor clothing for their active lifestyles and varied pursuits.
Kühl men's clothing includes Merino wool sweaters and Alfpaca® fleece jackets and pullovers which have long appealed to skiers and hikers. Men's shorts, pants and shirts are perfect for casual activities, hiking and travel.
Women's technical outdoor clothing also includes Merino wool sweaters and jackets, and Kühl's own Alfpaca® fleece pullovers, ideal for mountain adventures. Shirts and pants with sun-protective fabric and casual t-shirts made with organic cotton round out women's casual and travel clothing assortment from Kühl.
At REI, you'll find top-rated and top-selling men's and women's outerwear and clothing from Kühl, plus plenty of sale & clearance deals and bargains.
