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!

Excellent Shorts

This pair of shorts have become my go to shorts for any activity. I am 5'11 185 and a large fits perfect. I have the gunmetal color, they are much lighter than the picture, and they also fade with washing. For three seasons I basically wear these shorts at least 3 times a week. I have had them for over a year and a half with no durability issues. They are great for a night out or hiking your favorite mountain.
