    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.

    Kuhl pants are the best pants

      I no longer own any other pair of pants that are not kuhl pants, this is what i wear to work, when im out, during the weekends, pretty much everything except weddings. they are comfortable and super durable. i love em

      Comfy but not durable

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 38x34

      I got a pair of these in late September 2015. By July 2016 they had a big hole in the seat, a rip in the right knee that continued to expand (and two others starting above and below it), were starting to tear at the crotch... even were wearing down to the liner at the pocket where I sometimes clip a knife or streamlight.

      They're super comfortable pants, and great in hot weather, have pretty good range of motion. Love the big phone pocket on the right thigh, large enough for an iPhone 6Plus.

      But I would never buy them again - they just don't last. I barely wore them at all from December - March because they're really not suited for cold weather, so they basically wore out to unusable in ~5-6 months of use. And much of the time, I was wearing them to the office and back. I wasn't bushwhacking or mountaineering in them; some yard work, light forestry (bucking up and moving logs), hiking maintained trails with an occasional foray to snag some blueberries, that kind of thing.

      But they were nice while they lasted! Color was good, transitioned well from work to trail, fit was pretty much spot-on. If you're gonna baby them, they might last. But for this price? Look elsewhere.


        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).

        I can confirm what you said about the fit of these pants. They are much more fitted than other Kuhl pants. I have some of the Revolvr pants that are a relaxed fit and provide ample room. I too, have large legs and these pants just don't work for me. One thing to note is the Fit listed in the specs. These pants have Kuhl's Klassic fit which is narrower through the legs.

        No Need to Iron in the Flatirons

        The 3rd Flatiron in the distance!! Great pant...kept everything nice and cool scrambling the 1st and 2nd Flatirons Trail.

        No Need to Iron in the Flatirons

        Thanks for the honest review Josh,you saved me some money...I love,love,love all my Kuhl's very much my all time favorite hiking pants for style and comfort, but find myself putting my gear thru the paces more and more these days, in time I have found my need for real world performance and durability have come to outweigh my love of looks and style and find myself going for my Carhartt Ripstop pants and double front dungarees more and more.
