Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kuhl Spyfire Down Vest - Men's I really wanted to like this product since I found it well fitting and stylish. But after wearing it no more than a couple of times there was a small puncture on the outer shell which caused the insulation to start coming through! I replaced the jacket with another and the same thing happened in a matter of a couple of weeks! I own other jacket with similar construction that cost much less than this vest and have had no trouble. Its a shame but I'm done with this vest and perhaps brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Light Good looking down vest. On a hike this AM it was just right @45degF. Enough added warmth if there is no wind and you are doing something active. The armholes have a slight elastic band which is good to keep air from escaping/entering. Lots of zipper pockets for keys, phone, whatever. It does not have much volume of down so not going to provide substantial additional warmth. Fabric is very light so I expect it will be relatively fragile and won't do much for you on it's own if the wind picks up. IT is nice and looks good, though pricey (I had a gift cart so my net price wasn't so bad--but probably wouldn't have bought if I had to pay full price). I will probably buy a substantial fleece vest for something more durable and warm for rugged, cold weather outdoor activities, and keep this as something dressier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kuhn Spyfire Down Vest Kuhn is extremely well made outer wear. The vest fits great, has room to move - very versatile. Not as warm as you would think, but a great 2nd layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spiffy Spyfire I have a number of fleece vests and I was considering venturing down the road of the puffy (down) vest but didn't want to risk being mistaken for Marty McFly. The Spyfire is sleek, formfitting, and warm. It fits well under any outer shell. The ample pockets make it practical to wear alone out or just around the house on a chilly day. It's been my go-to garment since I got it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable vest warm too I needed a warm but lighter vest. I have an old REI one,20+ year old. the old one is still serviceable but overly warm for wearing under anything except in frigid weather. The new KUHL is just perfect. In fact I am wearing it now.
