Not even close to size
Bought this jacket and assumed that it would be like the description in regards to the sizing. Now unless they sent me a woman's by mistake then I have to report that this jacket wasn't even close to being the right size. I could barley get my arms into the sleeves............

I love Kuhl clothing - but whomever is in charge of sizing shirts & jackets is WAY off. Shorts and pants are right on. Shirts and jackets ALWAYS run very small. Order Kuhl shirts and jackets one size up from whatever you order (from everyone else on the planet) and you will love whatever you order.

The jacket is a great bridge between outdoor and style. Good range of motion in the arms. My only request would be for more pockets on the inside lining

Iâve been wearing the whole range of Kuhl products from light jackets to shorts and they last forrreeverrrr and never stop fitting correctly. I will continue to use their products for a long time to come!

So close to WOW... so close
First off, I should say that despite my gripes with it, I really dig this jacket. It is a 3 season shell, but I find I am warm with just a 150 marino layer and a shirt on most winter days here in DC. If just a couple things were taken care of, I would give it an emphatic 5 stars... PROS: - Quality construction - Looks GREAT - Nice wind resistance - Decent water repelling CONS: - The rattling zippers; I would spend 5 extra bucks for some rubber jacketed zippers that don't make noise - You can feel the smallest object in the pockets to an almost annoying extent. Perhaps a different pocket liner? - The collar is in your cheeks if you engage the zipper even 1/3 of the way, it doesn't 'train' well either. Perhaps a sewn seam to flare the collar out a scosche? - Narrow at the wrists and only one button option for closure Bottom line - this is a great jacket, but the pocket situation and zippers make it slightly annoying some days. I would LOVE to see an upgraded version of this. SIZING TIP: If you are an extremely muscular person or you do not have an athletic build, this might not be the jacket for you. I am 5'8 (173cm) and a (somewhat) muscular 165 lbs (rock climber). If you are any bigger than I am, a medium would probably be like a stuffed sausage.

This is my third Kuhl purchase with two pairs of pants leading the way. As with my previous purchases I like this product too! Fits well, great comfortable material, and comfortable!

Loving this jacket!
I needed a jacket for when a full coat is too much but a hoody isn't enough. You know, when you just need to stay warm between leaving the house and the car being warmed up. This jacket fits the bill perfectly. I can wear it comfortably in the car without 10 minutes of adjusting and pulling and stretching and I love that. Great construction with enough structure to hold it's shape and stay in place but plenty of give to make it nice and roomy. Very comfortable in temperatures as low as the 20s! I am extremely pleased with this jacket! Can I have another?

I wear it almost every day to work or anywhere really. I bought a large so I can layer underneath it. Works and looks great. We buy a lot of Kuhl clothes. They are constructed well and last.

Flattering and comfortable
If you have wide shoulders and a not so big waist, this is an ideal design. It fits snugly but moves with you and does not bind.

+1, meant for narrow to wide

Great cool weather jacket
Really nice looking, great fitting lightweight jacket. Extremely comfortable to wear, I hate to take it off. Logos are real subtle, which is nice. It moves and stretches with you, I forget it's on.

Another outstanding classic from Kuhl
Jacket runs a bit small so if you're on the margin order the larger size. Material is durable and the perfect weight/warmth for late fall or early spring. It is also very comfortable jacket, easy on and off with a classic look. The zippers are all high quality and the pockets lined for extra warmth. Great jacket!

Outer shell has a nice finish, I bought black and lent or dust does not attract to it like some other jackets I have looked at. The liner is soft and comfortable, other jackets I have looked have a rough texture inside. Jacket is slim cut and works well as a liner for larger cut coats. This jacket works well in temps. of 50 degrees or more. I wear it everywhere!

Solid Jacket + Great Experience
Very impressed with Backcountry. My first order was simply perfect. Cheers.

Stylish With Athletic Flair
5'11" 145 pounds 40 Chest. Purchase a size Medium in Raven color (black). This is a great waist length soft shell jacket. I consider it for town wear and stylish for casual nights out on town. It has an athletic flair withe the boxed panel on the back and articulated elbows. The collar looks great up (not snooty) and the cuff snaps add to the jacket look instead of velcro. As expected, this is a 3 season weighted jacket. I still wear it in the dead of winter with sweater to drive and go to office work. The 2 large inside pockets are great for putting most things in. Both are large enough to hold an average paperback book with no problem. Outside pockets (3) are chest and one on either side. All are roomy. The jacket is not windproof nor waterproof. Overall, this is a sharp looking jacket, very comfortable all around, and certain to attract the eyes of admirers. Wish List: Inside pockets had a closure of some kind.

Just picked up this jacket after the holidays. Great construction and fit, things I've come to expect from KUHL. After wearing patagonia and north face I have been pleasantly surprised with all of my KUHL pieces. The Impakt cut wind quite well although I cannot attest to how well it repels water. I am 6'5 and 185 lbs and a large fits me perfectly.

Great soft shell
During the fall and on warm winter days this jacket is all you need to stay cozy when your not moving around too much. From sitting at the coffee shop to hanging out at the bottom of a climb and waiting for your friend to set up an anchor, this jacket works awesome. Great convenient pockets, and quality build.

Great Jacket - runs small
I ordered this for my son. He takes a medium in almost all his coats & jackets. I am returning this and unfortunately, no large available on this site. Had to pay $50 more on another site! It is well made and nice fabric.

perfect fall / light winter jacket
this jacket fits well and looks great. It is warm and perfect to wear in temps down to the mid 20's. Front vest zipper holds an i-phone in an Otter Box, also there is an inside pocket that works well to. This jacket does well in rain and snow. I like that the collar zips up or can be folded down without stupid buttons on the sides to tight collar. The large was true to size and is a bit tapered, is a bit tighter and that is why it feels good on.
