Kuhl began as Alfwear in 1983 with Alf hat, which is a Peruvian inspired hat that ski enthusiasts wore in the mid 80s. It moved away from traditional natural fibres and instead was created with polar fleece which made it a beloved option for many serious Rocky Mountain Powder skiers. Now Kuhl is a company which intertwines skiing, nature, and art to create performance fabrics for the outdoor lifestyle.
Clothes by Kuhl
Sweather fleeces, outdoor pants, and jackets are just some of the designs created by Kuhl for the active outdoor adventurer. The materials they use are combinations of cotton, fleece, and nylon to create durable and weather proof outdoor fabrics. Kuhl features designs for both men and women primarily in neutral tone colours to match with the natural aesthetic of the company.
Advantages of Fleexe
The hydrophobic fibers of fleece means it holds less than 1% of its weight in water when wet, and manages to keep excellent insulating properties even when wet. It is highly breathable, lightweight, easy to wash, and dries fast. These are just some of the reasons why many outdoor brands and clothing items choose fleece as the ideal material as warm undergarments under the outer windproof jacket layer.
If you are planning a skiing holiday and need to fill your closet with warm pieces, do not forget to invest in some comfortable and warm thermal undergarments. These will make or break your winter wardrobe, as layering is the key to stay warm in freezing temperatures. A warm coat is another must have when traveling or living in cold climates. For icy and snowy conditions, it is also a good idea to purchase high quality boots , whether you pick leather or synthetic materials, to keep your feet warm in any weather.
