Rated3out of5byzach joggerfromBaggyI really liked the look of this item and was excited to get it using the 20% discount on top of the outlet discount; however, I was disappointed by the fit. It was far baggier than I was expecting. I'm 5'11 150lb and have many items from Kuhl and take a medium in them all, but this was loose in the chest and even wider in the waist (did not seem to taper at all). It just did not hang right. Fabric and design (other than the cut) were stylish, warm, and good quality - granted I cannot comment on the durability since it was never really worn or washed as I returned it.
Maybe a size down would have been better, but I decided look for something different.

Rated5out of5byL the CyclistfromGreat totally wool zip up jacketI own the Ibex Nomad black men's wool hoody, and I wear it constantly. My wife suggested that maybe there was some other wool light jacket in a different color, but I had a hard time finding anything else that was all wool. But then I found this one on sale at REI!
It has no hood, and it's navy blue with a stripe instead of solid black, so it has a different look than my Ibex. It is thicker wool than my Ibex, which makes it slightly warmer.
It is solidly constructed, and went through the wash (in cold, no dryer) just fine.
If you haven't "gone wool" yet, you should! Wool is awesome, and so is this jacket.

Rated5out of5bymeggfromFantasticThis sweater is amazing. The design is definitely for tall German people (super long sleeves) but it is worth the tradeoff for the quality of the wool and the feel of the sweater. It's super warm and a really nice weight and it always looks good. The pockets are a really nice feature. I had my first one for a few years and it definitely aged but it still looked nice after tons of wear. I wouldn't recommend washing it that often. When you do wash it you should hand wash it. It's worth the extra care.
