Lightweight & warm, yet highly breathable
Water, wind & abrasion resistant
Winner of Multiple Awards
Men's Journal Gear of the Year
The design challenge was simple:
The Kula had to be that one, go-to garment you grab when you leave the building for the day.
That's a big ask, but we believe it delivers.
The Kula feels like your favorite sweatshirt, yet performs like a jacket.
It's highly breathable, yet it's wind, water & abrasion resistant.
Bluesmiths' fit, construction & timeless design mean that The Kula has you covered whether you are at the beach, on the boat, travelling, heading to the office or hitting the gym.
It's become an absolute favorite of our team and our customers since 2012.
We are confident that The Kula Hoodie will rapidly become your go-to, everyday garment.
WindPro® HardFace® stretch fabric from Polartec® means that despite feeling fleecy and cosy on the inside, The Kula is wind & light water resistant.
Perfect for everyday, changeable conditions.
Engineering / Design / Fit

"IThe Bluesmiths Kula Hoodie elevates the sweatshirt to near perfection with a tailored cut that hugs the body in a wind- and water-resistant Polartec fabric, making it the ideal layer for when you come in from the surf and the sun starts to set.."

"It's been used from Fiji to Colorado and all stops in between.
The first one is 6 years old and in great shape. I bought another color to make it seem like I actually have a wardrobe."

"This is perfection. Perfect Service, Perfect product(s), Perfect fit, ... It is hard to wear something else afterwards"

Based on Maui, Hawaii we're a small group of friends who spend every spare moment we can in the water. Over the years, we've become obsessed with making great gear for our different passions. Gear that's hard-working, great-fitting, and built to work on the ocean, land, and everywhere in between.
Simply put, we're about building better gear for what we do.
How we think -
1. We don't want to build more gear, just better gear.
2. We're driven to develop gear that out-performs anything we can find.
3. We want everything we build to be well engineered and made with purpose.
4. We love versatile garments and design with that in mind.
5. We want our gear to last a very long time.
6. We like tailored clothing & we want our gear to fit amazingly well.
7. We live for the ocean and the waters. They're our playground and we want to look after them.
