    Great shorts, meh price

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small

    These are very good shorts that are lightweight and comfortable all day. They dry very fast and do not seem to hold any dirt or crud after wearing them all day. The "phone" pocket is great and gives easy access to the phone. The cargo pockets are in an odd position and when used, hold your gear in an uncomfortable place. The price is way too high in my opinion. But, if they last, it may be a fair price. Only time will tell. Definitely worth a look if you wear shorts all day.

    Awesome shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30

    My picky husband LOVES these shorts. He's an athletic size 30 and they fit beautifully. The camel color is a bit quirky but he loves them because they aren't the typical khaki or blue that he already has. His iPhone fits in the leg pocket and there are plenty of other deep pockets to use. They also wick well and dry quickly in the hot Texas sun.

    Shorts for the Active

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30

    These shorts are ideal for those playing hard. Logical and secure pockets to keep key items safe. Lightweight, flexible and breathable fabric make it easy to move -- also made possible by their athletic cut.

    Just know to size up

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 33

    These shorts are amazing, if I need to get them wet they dry fast, durable and stretchy. I love climbing and mountain biking in these, but honestly I only own Kuhl shorts so I use them for EVERYTHING. I reccomend these to every person looking for a great pair of shorts

    Great Shorts

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

    These shorts are really comfortable for walking. I'm 5'11", 160 and from the moment I put them on I was impressed by the fit and comfort. Nice pockets and really sturdy belt loops. If I didn't have so many pairs of shorts already, I would buy more of these.

    Very versatile shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 40

    I were these everywhere! They are comfortable and good for hiking and fishing. Hot and humid these are the answer. If you get soaked they are a quick dry. I have bought 3 different pairs.

    Great Hot Weather Shorts

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

    I like these a lot. They are made of a light, stretchy material. Ultralight and don't hold any water. I have a 34-35" waist depending on how many cheeseburgers I've had my hands on. I got the 36" waist and it fits well, a tad loose, and very comfortable. I don't like a snug fit for pants and shorts. These are very airy and work well for hot and humid and wet weather. The material is thin however, so I don't think they would hold up to very rough or abrasive treatment. Overall, I like them for what they are, so I ordered another pair. They are nice and long also and come down my low knees.

    Comfortable functional shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 34

    I wore these shorts for 10 days recently while traveling in Costa Rica. The material is slightly stretchy, dirt and water resistant, and very breathable. The front pocket lining is micro mesh and hold a lot. The other pockets are sized right and very functional. I wore them hiking, zip lining (with a seat harness) and pretty much everywhere I went. I didn't swim in them, but they'd be good in the water if you needed them to be. I'm usually a 32 and bought 34's which fit perfectly without the need for a belt. These are likely the best pair of shorts I have worn and I'm looking forward to the warm weather here in Maine so I can put them back on!

    Love these shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32w (Shorts0 32w X 34i (Pants)

    I have 7 pairs of Kuhl Shorts and Pants. These are all awesome..
    do "NOT" Tumble dry, wash is warm water and hang to dry, they will stay true to size and will last twice as long..

    Great Product

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 36

    These shorts are great. They fit perfectly and they're made from a material that dries quickly and, despite the light color, does not stain easily. I recently wore them on a camping/biking trip where it was rainy and muddy. The shorts got muddy during the ride(s), but after it dried I was able to simply brush the "stain" away with my hand. Great product!

    So comfortable to climb in

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34

    Just in general these shorts are awesome. The material feels durable, and it's got a good stretch to it that keeps them from inhibiting movements. They've got a good number of pockets as well to keep your goodies safe and secure. Not sure if it's a big point, but the buttons on the fly are great as well. There is a solid button on the top and an interior button that keep the shorts nice and secure during some of the more awkward stretches to reach the next hold.

    I really like the look of the shorts as well. There's not need to change to head out after a hike or a climb. The shorts look good, and they fit with a lot of shoes and shirts.

    The sizing seems accurate to me. I expected the shorts to be a little smaller, but that's not what my experience was. The shorts seem pretty accurate in sizing. I wear a 32 pant and ordered a 34 here expecting them to be a bit tight based on some reviews, but they were about 2 inches too big, so I'd buy the size you really are.

    Best Shorts Ever

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34

    From the features to the fit, material, and function, I think these shorts are the best active shorts I've owned. They have a solid, high quality feel when picking them up for the first time; they aren't heavy but also not flimsy and cheap. The material is durable and substantial feeling but has a tiny bit of stretch to it such that it is incredibly comfortable. Most of all, if you are an athlete with larger quads / glutes relative to your waist size, you simply won't find a better fit. I've tried on every top brand I can think of and these have the best fit - in addition to what I would argue is the best design, material feel, and function.

    Love these shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 33

    Seriously comfy, like all of my KUHL stuff they move well, cool fabric that dies fast, tough.. these shorts seem to run a size small though.. I have the same pants in a 32 that fit perfect.. these in 33 are snug in the waist.

    Kuhl is cool!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 36

    These shorts leave nothing to be desired. The material has just the right amount of give, and it feels like it will hold up for years to come. The craftsmanship is top notch, and the layout of the pockets is well thought out.

    These shorts can easily transition from the mountains to the pub and look at home anywhere in between. As has been stated, these shorts do run small. I purchased a size 36 and I normally wear a 34. The 36 fits very well.

    A great pair of shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 36

    These shorts are fantastic...lightweight and rugged. As other reviewers have stated, they do tend to run small. I usually wear a size 34 but that size gave me a pretty pronounced muffin top (I'm slightly "hobbit-ish" around the midsection) so I returned them and got a 36...fit is perfect. Now I'll just have to purchase another pair or two.

    Runs Small

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small

    I own other Kuhl shorts in size 32 and all of them fit perfect. These are great shorts but they definitely run small. I ended up returning them for a size 33... perfect! LOVE these shorts!

    Run small

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    Great fabric with a great feel, just be aware they run a little small in the waist. I wear Kuhl Rydr pants regularly and love them. I wear a 36 waist in those without issue and they fit just like I like them. I picked these up in a 36 waist and the waist was tight, going to return and try a different size. For reference I am 6'4" @ 215 lbs. 36 is pretty much my standard waist size, so these run a little small.

    Anyone else experiencing the sewn-in button securing the fly coming un-sewn in a matter of days? I have the previous seasons patina version that don't have the problem. With the two pair of these new ones i own, both have same issue.
