Wondering what to get the wannabe traveler and outdoor lover for birthdays or holidays this…
Have you heard of the Kühl clothing brand out of Salt Lake City? I hadn’t until they reached out to me a month ago and offered my husband a few pieces of clothing. After perusing their website we settled on a pair of cargo shorts and the Kuhl Team sweater.
Upon receipt of the Kuhl clothing we were both very impressed. The clothing has a feeling of substance and quality. You don’t see loose threads and seams and as you can see below with the shorts, are double stitched. The sweater appeared equally well-made. (Note – 3 years later the clothes are still in great shape!)
Kuhl Kargo shorts
My husband has been wearing the shorts for a week now and loves them. He says they’re super comfortable and don’t rub even on a 15 kilometre walk.
He especially loves all the pockets (maybe with a zippered pocket he won’t lose the car key in the middle of nowhere!) and is quick to point out that each side of the short has effectively three pockets, a zippered one and an interior pocket within the larger snap pocket.
The shorts feel lightweight and will be the go to pair he now takes trekking in the Indian Himalayas. The sizing was bang on. To see them online click here.
The Kuhl Team 1/4 Zip Sweater
I love the look of the Kuhl Team sweater and so did my girlfriend on the recent hike we did to Lake Annette near Lake Louise. The sweater can be dressy if it needs to be but looks just at home in the woods. It’s made of lightweight, boiled merino wool.
I’ve become a huge fan of merino wool as you can wear it repeatedly – workout after workout – and it doesn’t get stinky. Although it’s wool, it can be washed on the delicate cycle though you should never throw it in the dryer unless you want to go to some trouble to make it fit you again (it can be done).
John hasn’t worn the sweater very much yet as we’re in an Alberta heat wave but he did remark that it was comfortable and light-weight. He too loves how it looks and I can see him wearing a piece like this for years. The sweater he received is a large and it’s a touch on the baggy side, which is fine for what he does. Pay attention to measurements if you prefer a slimmer fit.
