One look at the Kuhl 2063 W’s Spyfire Hoody ultralight Down Jacket and you realize it is different by design, construction, and features than any down sweater that has come before it.
The shell fabric is sourced from a superior Japanese mill that uses a high 24 filament 20 denier ultra-fine nylon yarn (for a softer hand feel and higher tear strength). The yarn is then woven into an extremely dense weave that provides both excellent down-proof-ness and increases the already higher tear-strength. The 800 fill (certified non force fed / not “live plucked”) goose down is also body mapped: Different size baffles create superior warmth where you need it, while the smaller baffles reduce bulk for layering under a shell.
The precision 3-D fit naturally follows the body and the intricate patterning and construction eliminate the binding which is typically found on the inside side seams of ordinary down sweaters. You almost forget you have it on, it’s such a natural, comfortable fit.
Four unique fabrics differentiate the KÜHL Spyfire from all others. Each fabric is engineered for a specific purpose. The soft shell reinforced fabric on the shoulders allow you to shoulder skis with sharp edges that would shred any ordinary down sweater. Light weight underarm knit fabric panels provide greater comfort in a wide variety of temperature by allowing heat to escape when you are more active.
The Spyfire features 2 zippered hand pockets as well as an inside mesh pouch pocket giving you plenty of options for storing your essentials. KÜHL has thought out every detail including the custom reflective ribbon that lies just under the zippers that serves 2 functions. First, it prevents the zippers from catching on the ultra-fine nylon fabric and second, when left open the reflective yarn on the ribbon creates added visibility.
The hood has a unique 5 panel design. This ensures it lays flat when not in use. Multiple adjustments on both the hood opening and the rear hatband allow you to customize the fit.
