Technical jeans for the mountain or the town.
Despite its casual denim feel, the Kuhl Men's Renegade Pant is actually a technical softshell for hiking and climbing. Its lightweight Tufflex fabric dries quickly, resists wrinkling, and provides sun protection, while the DWR coating helps the Renegade repel water. Kuhl designed this denim with a gusseted crotch and articulated knees for a freedom of movement. Mesh-lined pockets help you keep your cool when the day warms up.

- Q & A
Great comfortable pants
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 34-34
These are great pants and the stretch makes them comfortable. Some if the best pants I have had. They seem to run a little bigger than the other kuhl pants but not much at all.
Active type material
These are cool pants I got for my husband but we returned them since they are a little more sporty than we realized. He wants to use them for work and they were a bit too casual but would be awesome travel pants. (Ahhh, travel...something I'll do again some day when I don't have toddlers in tow.)
Another winner from Kuhl
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
I don't know what kind of witchcraft Kuhl is conjuring to have all the success with pants, but they better not stop.
I grabbed a pair of Revolver pants and loved them. They're super light considering they're mostly cotton, but I still wanted something that'll be better for summer- more breathable, quicker drying, flexible fabric...
Enter the Renegade pants. They have the usual amazing Kuhl construction- crotch gusset, articulated knees, sun protection, and DWR coating. The 12% spandex means that these pants will move with you no matter what too!
As far as the durability, I've already put them through a thorough test on day 1. Went climbing on some very sharp granite and got into some off widths. The shirt I was wearing came out with some damage, as well as my arms and ankles, pants still look like new! Even after bushwacking through scrub oaks, pants don't have a scratch on them.
