Super Kuhl style and construction!

I wasn't looking for a jacket when I found this Burr jacket. I was doing my Christmas shopping for family. But what a happy surprise!

This has quickly become my favorite jacket for any temp above 40 degrees. My Carhartt Ridge jacket, with more insulation is warmer, but ever since I first put this Burr jacket on, I don't want to wear any other jacket. This includes my Marmot winter coat and x-country jacket. The reason I mention this is that what appears to be a thin jacket, manages to keep me warm. I've been wearing in the rain, as well as windy days here in the Pacific NW. As for construction, the material and stitching looks like the quality of decades past. Zippers are thick and sturdy, but not horsey looking.

I am medium athletic build, 5'10" and a tad over 160 lbs. and this coat is a perfect fit. The collar stands up well to protect my neck, and doesn't distract or irritate me like other jackets I've tried with the same type of collar. I love the inner shell material as well. This allows me to wear any material shirt or sweater without the sleeves bunching up putting it on.

I'm blown away that a jacket like this can be had for so cheap, and from what I can tell, should last years. I am looking forward to wearing on my motorcycle this Spring!

I bought this jacket without trying it on. I know that Backcountry has a great return policy so I went for it... and am glad I did.
I have been looking for a canvas style jacket for a while, but haven't been too impressed. It seems that there's always some funky pocket, lame elastic waist band, a bad color or weird collar, or something I didn't like about everything I saw.
This jacket is the answer to my quest for a cool canvas style jacket. It is equally useful for sitting around the campfire, to a casual night out in the city. VERY comfortable and stylish. I got the brown. There was a fellow on this site that complained about the brightness of the stitching, but I don't see any problems with it. In fact, it only adds to the coolness of the jacket.
Note: i am a fairly slim guy, 5"10" around 170. I got size large and it fits perfectly. However, if you are a bit larger in the mid section, this jacket may be tight.
Overall: very cool jacket... fit's great, you'll get compliments wearing it, nice fabric and workmanship, by far my favorite casual jacket. you can't go wrong with this piece.

First off, the service from backcountry was excellent. I initially bought a small and exchanged it for a medium, and their exchange policy was very good and fast.
The jacket is very nicely made, and has some nice details. The cotton weave is a bit unique, not exactly denim though not canvas either. I like the contrast stitching on the brown jacket - it's a nice detail that reflects quality (because if the stitching is a bit off it will be very noticeable). Overall, the jacket is fairly lightweight. It has what I consider a 'medium weight t-shirt' lining in the body, with satin-type material only in the sleeves.
The zippers are nice quality, and work smoothly. I also like the fact that there aren't huge logos on this jacket - the styling speaks for itself.
I think this jacket could benefit from gussets in the sleeves/shoulders. The small fit my body fairly well, but the jacket bound up when I raised my arms. The medium is better when I raise my arms, but is a little loose in the body. I think the sizing recommendations are accurate.

My favorite jacket

This is my favorite jacket. It's warm enough into the 50s. The material is only starting to fray slightly at the sleeves after 2-3 years of regular use. It's surprisingly durable. It dries fast. The zippers are excellent and don't pucker or catch. Just a great all round jacket.

This jacket tends to run just a shade tight in fit, which is perfect for me. I'm a lean 39" chest and usually walk the boarder between sm/med. Because of the fit, I also tend favor vests over full arm fleeces to warm it up a little extra.

A note: I have the slightly older version of this jacket. The newer version fixed the only thing that was slightly annoying, which was that the sleeves were fleece lined and bunched-up long sleeve shirts.

Zappos provided amazingly fast shipping! This is a Christmas gift for my husband and I order it at 6:00 PM Thursday. It arrived noon on Friday! (we are on the west coast) I love that! I am excited to give him the coat - it looks great and I think it will be perfect. I followed recommendations from other reviewers on size - he can fall between M and L in the body, but is long in the arms, so I went with the L. Nice thing is if I am wrong on the fit, it will be a quick, free return and exchange with Zappos! I love ordering with you guys with the VIP service.

I have this jacket in Khaki. It's got a nice rugged qualty ot it and the articulated sleeves are a nice touch. Helps stop binding of whatever you're wearing underneath. I own a bunch of Kuhl products. Pants, shirts and jackets. Sure ... they have one of the coolest names ever but you also get the bitchin sticker with every Kuhl order. Seriously ... Kuhl products are built with quality to last. From the zippers to the stitching. Everything is cut in clean, classic lines but most important of all is they live up to their tag line "Born in the Mountains." You can see this in the detail and features of all their clothing.

Steve Chapman at Backcountry.com on 03/31/2012
A nice looking, stylish jacket with a soft, warm lining. I agree with other reviewers and recommend that you go up a size from your normal size for comfort since this is a close-fitting jacket. The contrast stitching brings an appealing look. The color and softness of the canvas is superb. Nice, metal YKK zippers for the front and hand pockets. The button sleeves halfway up let in cold air but it doesn't bother me. It's not a heavy jacket, so I wouldn't recommend in weather below 35 F. An alternative to the standard biker or leather flight jacket with a similar appeal. Overall, 5 stars, it has a great look!

Have had this coat a couple of months now, love it! Wearing it right now actually. Very comfortable, great looks, and very durable. Outside chest pocket fits my Samsung Note-sized smart phone well, inside pocket holds flask perfectly :) Fairly warm, but more of a light jacket for spring and fall. I'll wear it down to about 20F with a couple of layers and a sweater under, though.
fyi I'm about 5'8 and 165 and the medium fits me perfect. Large might have worked if I wanted a looser fit, but it looks goofy (tried a large one on in a retail store)

Looking for an excuse to wear it

I look forward to opportunities to wear this jacket, because of its rugged looks and ability to combine it with anything casual--from chinos to jeans, button-down shirts to T-shirts. I had been looking for a denim jacket, but this one is a step up, with a little fleece lining, lined sleeves, and zippered interior pocket. I like the contrasting stitching, and the shaped sleeves. I expect to use it mostly in the Spring and Fall. I would describe its look and fit as more of a motorcycle jacket than denim jacket, just in cotton canvas rather than leather. I love this jacket!

Really like this jacket

Love this jacket for the most part, for me it's a great alternative to the carhartt jacket and more stylish. Great looking, feels durable yet comfortable. After an initial wash, the finish has some marks, but I think it will even out with age and additional washes. Cuts the wind very well, and can be layered for colder weather. I wish the sleeves were another inch or two long. I probably have longer than average arms (I need 34/35 sleeves on shirts), but it's difficult for me to do any reaching in this jacket. Other than that, I love it.

Negative Reviews:


I think the jacket was great until you try and raise your arm up to do anything, like grab your set belt or swing an axe while chopping wood for the winter. That second stitching on the shoulder hiders your range of motion by so much. I was really excited to get this jacket because I had the Spurr jacket which was great but it wasn't insulated. So I wanted a more insulated jacket in the winter so I wasn't wearing so many layers. If they fix that stitching problem I would consider buying it. In the end I had to return it because it was to annoying.

Neutral Reviews:

I got this coat... two years ago? I usually wear a medium in shirts and jackets, but I'm practically swimming in the thing. That's not terrible, because I can wear a hoodie underneath. I figure I should just exchange it for a small, but I haven't done that yet. I also don't think it's as warm as everyone says, but that also could be because it's so large. It's still only a thin layer of fleece inside, though. But, it's VERY well constructed, no frayed thread or gaping seams after quite a while. I used it a lot last winter with several layers underneath. Overall, I'm not sure it was worth the $100, but it's not a bad jacket.

Sadly, looks aren't everything

This jacket gets amazingly positive reviews overall, which puzzles me...
The style of the jacket is great. The intent of the articulated arms was marvelous but they didn't accommodate that the sleeves will ride up with this cut thus, making the sleeves feel as if they are too short when arms are in use.
I love the fabric used and the patina finish on it.
Front zipper was a little clunky and the hand pockets at the waist had big scratchy zippers on them making it uncomfortable to run your cold hands by them to use. For this reason and the sleeve issue, I had to return this jacket.
Bradsome at REI on 03/03/2013

Very nice jacket, but flawed

This is a very nice jacket, and it is well made. However, if you are looking to wear this in any sort of inclement or cold weather, this is not the coat for you.

Though very nicely made, the fundamental flaw in this jacket from a functional perspective are the sleeves. From mid-fore arm to the cuff is unprotected, due to an unlined slit. In cold or wet weather, this slit introduces cold and wet drafts from your elbow to the top of your gloves.

So, if you are going to wear this in cold weather, you should wear some sort of long sleeve under layer.
