Feel the breeze.
It always seems like breezes are few and far between when you're hiking in warmer weather. Kuhl's Kuhlair vent system places eleven mesh panels on the Men's Kontra Air Pant so you can enjoy that air against your skin. Its cotton and nylon blend gives the Kontra Air breathability and durability in a soft, lightweight fashion. Kuhl also reinforced the grosgrain ribbon for extended longevity, and the cell phone and wallet pocket was specifically designed so you don't sit on your bulky wallet.

- Q & A
Can't agree with the other reviews--I love these pants! They're so comfortable, look awesome, and are designed perfectly with lots of cool pockets and vents. Definitely a great hiking pant for warm/cool spring and fall days. The material is light yet I've encountered no ripping. Pants are beautifully crafted, definitely worth the investment.
Comfortable but flimsy
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 34 waist
I've bought two pairs of the Kontra Air pants, and both developed holes in the crotch area after several days of very light use--just wearing around the house and town, not hiking. The lightweight fabric is incredibly comfortable, but the durability is terrible. I would not recommend these pants.

Too Big for my Britches
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
I'm really sad to say that these pants caved in under pressure at a time when I needed them the most. As you can see from my previous picture reviews, I dig the way this pair of pants look on me. After a hike up the Bergen Peak this weekend, I ripped a couple of holes in the crotch area, no where near the seem.
I will chalk this up to the size and try to find a pair that is a little bigger in the legs. The waist size fits true, but if you're like me (a hulk in the legs) then you may want to consider going up a couple sizes (3 stars because I'm going to give this pair another chance with a bigger size).
Kuhler than Cool
