    Nice cotton blend shorts

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 36"

    I have a 34-35" waist, but I like things on the loose side, so I got the 36", they fit great. They are made of a cotton-synthetic blend, which is fairly light and comfortable and hold some water, but they are thin enough that they don't become waterlogged. They come down comfortabley to my mid knee. After a wash the material takes on a weathered/worn appearance, which I like. The zip pockets are nice, but there are a few velcro latches also, and I'm not much of a fan of velcro, I confess. Overall they have a relaxed fit. One word of caution, check your colors. Breen, brown, coffee, gunmetal, etc are all almost indistinguishable at times with Kuhl. Overall, they make the best pants and shorts I've come across in some time.

    Good but the color is off

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I got these to wear on spring snowboarding days and ordered what I thought would match the instructor dress code black uniform pants. Cobalt is not black. Otherwise I like them quite a bit.

    Colors Vary

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Love the shorts but colors are not always what is depicted on the site. Khaki is not at all what I expected and returned them. Gun metal and carbon are better although carbon is not really a black carbon.

    Great fit, but beware the lizard

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    I love the way Kuhl clothing fits, but somedays I hate how they do colors. Most recent example, I ordered these Ambush shorts in Olive/Lizard color. They looked fairly standard in the picture, but this proved untrue. The inside of these shorts is BRIGHT fluorescent green and that color bleeds through to the outside of the shorts. Looks like a bad dye job. Ordering another pair in Khaki, so hopefully they won't have a similar problem.

    Buying Multiple Colors

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32

    My husband usually buys generic cargo shorts, but I decided to upgrade his style and comfort for his active lifestyle. The second he put these on, he was hooked. I had to buy 3 other colors!

    Amazing Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34

    Kuhl always puts out a quality product. These shorts are no exception. Very comfortable and I haven't put to much extreme wear on them but they appear built to last. The ONLY gripe I have which is very minor is the velcro on the back pockets is VERY grabby/solid. Makes it a little tricky to put get my wallet in and out. With that being said... I am very confident I will never have my wallet slide out by accident.

    I'll be purchasing another paid of these shorts... different colour. Highly recommend!

    I bought these shorts last year...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    And loved them so much I had to get another pair this year. I now have two of the Ambush Cargo shorts and one of the Renegade shorts and they are the only shorts I wear. They fit true to size, and are very durable. The darker colors will fade, so expect that. My gunmetal colored shorts from last year are now light grey. They still look great even with the well worn look. They have endured everything from salty boat trips, to hikes in Yosemite and gritty yard work. They even lasted through a couple of crazy music festivals. I highly recommend the Ambush Cargo shorts.

    Best shorts I've ever bought!!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    These are my go to shorts. Very breathable and made with high quality material. An excellent choice in my opinion. I'm hard to please when it comes to shorts but these shorts are pretty much perfect!!! Kuhl makes some really killer clothes that are both fashionable and functional. I'd recommend these shorts to anybody that's how much I love these shorts.

    Favorite pair of shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I've had these for that past couple of months, and wear them all of the time. They are light weight and very breathable. The cargo pockets hold everything I need to cary with inside organizer pockets in the right cargo pocket what will hold my iPhone 5 in a case. The zippers are easy to open and close with one hand. I am 6'4" and the shorts come to mid knee. I would order more if they have had 36" shorts in stock.

    My new go to shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large

    Had these for 2 weeks and wear them for everything. I tape measure 36 at the waist but 34 Kuhl fits great. The zipper pockets can be opened with one hand. Right pocket has organizer and fits my iPhone 5S with commuter box perfect. Pockets are mesh and will drain water if necessary. Material is soft but feels durable with a little stretch. No buttons to fall off. Metal snap closure. Attachment point on rear center. Khaki color is a darker hue which hides more dirt. Length comes down to just below knee. Wife digs them too. Kuhl should come out with some Kuhl t-shirts to go with these shorts.

    Best shorts I own

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    These are simply my #1 favorite go-to shorts, hands down. Super comfy and very useful (flush w/ pockets) - I' m not sure you can go wrong with these. I wear 32 waist and 32 is true to that size on me...also @ 6'6'' tall the length is perfect for me - something that can be tough to get in shorts. Pockets are beyond adequate with the standard four (meshed) and cargo's on the side with full zippers on them so stuff isn't falling out on you. I use these for biking, hiking, and just noodling about - and they look sweet.



    As with the Kuhl jeans, the only thing I dislike is the open-hole button at the waist...so far this one is holding up but the ones on my first pair of Kuhl jeans began to get weak and pop all the time. Not sure that'll happen here - but we'll find out very soon.

    Great pair of shorts.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    The shorts are lightweight & very comfortable. I ordered the shorts in a 34 when my normal sizing is a 33, but the fit is perfect. The colors I'm guessing are all a little off since my khaki shorts are nowhere near the color khaki I was expecting, but more of an olive hue. All in all they're great shorts and I'm pleased with my purchase, other than the color being off a bit.

    Travelin' shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Who DOESN'T like a pair of shorts that carry everything from your cash to your Kindle (yup, even the big old ones fit in those cargo pockets!) and secure nicely, thanks to those forward zipping pockets? I traveled for 2 weeks through beaches and mountains of Sri Lanka with nothing but two pairs of these shorts. They dry quickly overnight, even in humid environments. I'm a very happy customer!

    Very functional shorts.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I really like how both cargo pockets zip forward to open. The zipper are sturdy and easy to use with one hand. The pockets are fairly large, and the right hand pocket has two smaller pockets inside for cell phone and other smaller items. Just like all the other Kuhl products these shorts are built to last!

    My favorite shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    These shorts are awesome! They fit well, true to size. The have great pockets and wear well. Durable, comfortable and utilitarian; I can't think of a better pair of shorts.

    Perfectly designed shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Love these shorts! Always the most comfortable, well designed clothes from Kuhl, Great quality and fit!!! And BackCountry's service is the best out there!
