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.
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.
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)
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.
