Still my favorite Kuhl pants

    I keep coming back to these pants as one the of the most versatile things in my closet. I wear them to work at at a renewable energy research lab and they don't stand out as too casual. I can be climbing ladders to the roof-top solar PV, crawling under benches in the lab, running to pick up my kid a daycare, or breezing into a meeting with industry clients and these do the trick. Not to mention they're my go-to weekend pants. I just wish there were a few more colour combo's so I could mix it up a little more!

    I do find they fade a bit faster than I'd like. Here's my pants in order of preference for what I do: Outkast, Kuhl Jean or Revolvr, Hi-Lo cord, Gunslinger. Some of the heavier fabrics weren't as comfy, harder to break in, and I didn't like the fit/feel. The cotton fab's seem to fade quite fast too.

    If you're hesitating, go for it. You'll like 'em.


      Bought these for my husband, he is a 32 waist and 5"7. Fit is great and they look very good on him. Modern style without being over the top...he is a youthful 44 and although very physically fit; not needing to dress like he is 25. He loves the fabric and thinks they are very comfortable.

      Great pants, very comfortable and versatile

        These pants are great for climbing, hiking, and other outdoor adventures. They also look good enough to wear around town. They have kind of a loose fit, which does not restrict your movement, and also makes them look less dorky than a lot of other outdoor pants. I have had mine for about three years and I am surprised how well they have held up, considering the amount of use and the weight of the material.

        I do not concur!

          Okay, the good the bad and the ugly here. Hard to work out if these duds look like they came out of the rubbish bin or are on their way into it. Whilst the fabric is light and comfortable it lacks stretch and does not hold shape well at all. Consequently after a short amount of time you are looking like a slob. Pockets are loose, fly is awkward and does not allow for easy relief. All round, just okay.

          My favorite pair of pants ever

            I bought these a few years for a mix of traveling and hiking and they've turned out to be the best pair of all around pants I've ever owned. Unlike the other Kuhl pants (at least the ones I've looked at) these are lined with nylon on the inside of the pant which creates a nice smooth surface and helps keep you cool even on hot days.
            Despite being 2/3 cotton, they're relatively quick drying, and I've worn them for everything from rock climbing, to light hiking, to traveling, to dinner with the parents. I've found these to be comfortable in temperatures from near freezing (if you're moving a lot) to up ~85 F (if you're just walking around town or on a light hike).

            As far as durability, my first pair started getting some holes after ~2 years of medium to heavy use.

            For fit, they run ~ 2" smaller (in the waist) than my normal size. They're a bit baggy, but not overly so.

            My favorite pair of pants ever

            Fantastic pants.

              I love these pants. Or should I say loved them because some scumbag broke into my car and stole them while I was out running.

              Brilliant feel and incredibly comfortable even when trapped in a torrential downpour:)
              The colour is a little interesting and not really brown but whatever it was I liked it. The only thing to bear in mind is that they are sized a bit on the high side. I tried the 32s (but a different style) in a shop here in Perth and they were tight but the 34s I ordered were a bit on the large size (length perfect though). Maybe Kuhl need to think about mid sizes. Once my insurance comes through I will definitely be replacing them.

              excellent pants

                There is nothing jeanlike about these pants. They are feather weight. The "silky" inner side of the material provides complete freedom of movement. Wear them and you will feel like Hugh Hefner strolling around the Playboy Mansion in silk pajamas. Only two additional belt loops stand between these pants and nirvana. Tend to run a little larger in the waist than advertised.

                Most comfortable pants.

                  The Kuhl "Jean" pant is in no way jean-like. The material is super thin and light weight which makes it perfect for high-heat activities or those where thin, very, mobile clothing is desired. These are the best fitting pant pair I have ever worn and are extremely comfortable. I use these casually and while hiking, and they're great for both. Super stylish. Highly recommended

                  Fantastic Casual Pant

                    I've owned the Kühl jeans for a few years now (two pair) and there is literally nothing that fits me better and serves me in all casual situations. The unique inner material provided superb hiking/walking comfort, largely due to the smooth-glide texture. Great for those hotter days with humidity! As for the fit (36w x 32l), well, I have long narrow legs and a full seat. These jeans fit me so well...and the wife continues to say they are the best-looking trousers I own. The full, articulated-knee leg is so roomy and provides great range of movement while hiking in the Swiss Alps, which I do weekly. I do wish Kühl would add a couple more belt loops, but that is a wanna-have, not a necessity. I would also like more colors from which to choose. Oh well, can't have everything! Beware, the sizes do seem to run a bit large; normally I wear 36x34, and the 36 waist provides plenty of extra room and the 32 in Kühl pants is a better length for me. This is a full-fitting pant so expect a comfortable fit.

                    Nothing like jeans, but still awesome

                      I recently discovered Kuhl pants, and so far every pair I've tried on have looked and felt awesome. Amazing, because I rarely get that excited about clothes.

                      The "Jean Pant" is nothing like a pair of denim jeans, so I don't understand the name. The fabric is a nylon mix that is very lightweight but still feels tough. Nice and breathable and doesn't absorb much water. Cut is generous, without looking baggy, and allows great range of motion without binding.

                      Overall, a great looking casual pant that would also work well for bouldering. Or pretty much anything else I can think of.


                      Great pants for traveling or the outdoors!

                        What amazing pants! I was really not looking forward to a 3 week trip without my blue jeans which had to be left at home due to bulk and hang dry time. These replacements left me comfy and happy to the point that I reached for these before my jeans when I got home. They are super comfortable and the material is very rugged yet soft on the skin. They easily dry in a few hours when hang dried and take up less than half the room (or weight) of a pair of blue jeans. The only complaint I have is that they are almost a little too baggy, even when compared to baggy cut jeans. The only other complaint is that I wish the front pockets were deeper. The pockets are huge enough to fit a small paperback into, yet they are shallow enough I constantly worried of things falling out when I put my feet up. These minor issues are easy to get over though due to the overall strength and comfort of the pants. Highly recommended for anyone needing some pants for traveling or the outdoors.

                        My Favorite Duds!

                          I've got a bunch of these and a few other style of pants the Kuhl has made. They're my favorites! The fit is great. They have turned into those pants you can wear any time of the day or night. They wear forever too. I've had great luck with them and plan to buy more when these are to the threads!

                          Second Favorite Pant...

                            When my hi-low cords from Kuhl are in the washer I break out these. This is a warm weather pant with plenty of room for muscular thighs or thermal underwear. The interior fabric is... I don't quite know how to describe it... it does not stick to your skin or hair... doesn't cause any static charging... The construction of the pants allows for plenty of room to lunge without feeling like you are going to bust a seam, while at the same time not sacrificing the butt-cupping properties my girlfriend likes in my jeans. It has a cellphone pocket on the right thigh that doesn't fit my Iphone at 2.5 inches wide... if your cell is 2.25 or less you should be fine. I am 37x32 and these pants sit now on my waist without a belt.

                            How does the waist size compare with a typical pair of jeans? I wear 31 waist Levis and am wondering if a 32 or 30 would get me closer to that

                            I've noticed the Charcoal Jean isn't available on Kuhl's website anymore. Will Backcountry be restocking Charcoal jeans in more sizes? I need a 32x32 and these pants are great.
