Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm Down Jacket that's not too Michelin Man Style I don't normally do reviews but since I tried on a couple jackets before picking this one I thought I'd save the next guy some time by providing this feedback. I purchased a lighter Kuhl jacket a couple years back (the Revolt) and was really impressed with it so when I started my search for a winter jacket I looked up the Kuhl brand to see what they were offering. There were no reviews for the Firestorm at the time so I was hesitant to buy it and could not find it locally to try on. I tried the Marmot "Fordham" jacket and the Fjallraven "Greenland No. 1 Down" jacket. The Marmot looked great online and did feel warm enough when tried on but was a little bulky for me. The Fjallraven jacket seemed as durable if not more so than the Marmot (more of a workman jacket), but it was too light for what I was looking for. A little background - I'm not trying to climb Mt. Everest and I'm not running a dog sled team. I need to survive the typical Philly winter (occasional night football game, trek through the city during bad winter weather, etc.). The down fill on this Kuhl Firestorm is 800 (superior to the other two) and the down weight is 340 grams (12 oz). I could not find the down weight for the Marmot listed online to confirm (it does feel warm) but the Fjallraven was only 100 and when tried on I knew it wasn't going to work for my purposes. A distant REI store had the Firestorm jacket in stock and after trying it on I knew it checked all my boxes. I'm 6'4" and the XL was a great fit. The sleeves are long enough for my arms (there is a slight pull when I use the thumb holes with my arms outstretched but its acceptable), the jacket feels lightweight but has stayed warm the few times I've used it, the hand pockets are fleece lined which is a nice touch, the exterior feels very durable and most of all, it doesn't have that bulky "michelin man" look or feel. Kuhl comes through again for me by making a jacket that is stylish and functional while not looking like the rest of them. I bought the black color "raven".
