Why Kuhl is so Cool

Monday, January 30th, 2012

Walk into Tahoe Mountain Sports on any given day, and odds are one of us is wearing Kuhl clothing - if not all of us. Every guy here owns at least one pair of the Kuhl Rydr pant – and it turns out, that’s what Kuhl was aiming for.

While we like to geek out on all the latest and greatest technical outwear for the days we’re out in the mountains, Kuhl, started by folks with the same passions, set out to make clothing for the rest of our lives.

“Even the best climbers or skiers still spend more time in town then on the summit,” said Kevin Boyle, one of the founders and lead designer at Kuhl at a recent interview with TMS at Outdoor Retailer.

Boyle, an avid skier, his brother Jay, along with John “Alf” Engwall and world-renowned climber Conrad Anker started off together with the Alf hat in 1983, which evolved into the Kuhl clothing brand we know today.

“We want to make the best pants in the world,” Boyle said.

And at Tahoe Mountain Sports, we think they may just be the best pants in the world.

What makes them so great? It boils down to comfort, fit, functionality, durability and style, all blended into one. Here’s a video of Boyle walking us through all that goes into a pair of Kuhl Pants:

“My job is to travel the world and find people who are passionate about making great fabrics. We work with the actual weavers and mills, so we’re not using the same fabrics everybody else has,” Boyle said.

The fabrics have to be felt to be believed, from sturdy yet soft canvas used in pants and jackets like the Kuhl Burr to Alfpaca and merino wool fleeces that even the most austere mountain man wouldn’t be embarrassed to call luxurious.

And the attention to detail, from complex patterns used to create an ergonomic fit to Italian snaps that don’t twist and dig into your stomach and even high-end fabrics used for the pockets all come together to make Kuhl Clothing something special.

You’ve got to try it on – once you do, you’ll want to wear it everyday – and they’re tough enough that you can for years to come.

“We’re not going to sit still,” Boyle said. “Even though we’ve been successful we’re haven’t created the product yet that will define our brand, we’re still striving to be better and better.”
