In 1990, KÜHL® introduced the Jacquard jacket, our signature Euro-styled Polartec® fleece top that featured the first – the original – innovative thumb-loop cuff system and lightweight underarm gussets for comfort and optimal climate control. This top gained cult status in the outdoor community and went on to win the Polartec® Apex Award. More awards and devotees would follow as KÜHL® continued to pioneer and produce. KÜHL® is independently owned and financed and its ideas are inspired by the founders’ intrepid lifestyle and those with whom they share it. KÜHL® currently designs and manufactures top-selling pants, shirts, outerwear and more and can be found in the best outdoor retailers nationwide.
