Deep-woods bushwhacking takes a certain amount of patience and a good sturdy pant like the cotton canvas KUHL Law Pant. And despite the durability of the heavyweight canvas, this pant remains super soft and mobile thanks to its Rhino technology.
- Knockabout Kloth (cotton canvas) provides amazing durability and comfort for work days or serious hiking and exploration
- Rhino technology, gusseted crotch, articulated knees, and an athletic fit all contribute to this pant's amazing mobility for your outdoor lifestyle
- Regular five-pocket design features a zippered thigh pocket to store a knife or other hiking and working essentials

Super tough pants, rock solid
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
These are every bit as tough as Kuhl adverstises them to be. They're basically the same material as the Ryder pants except the front has a double layer for added durability and toughness. The crotch is gusseted so it flexes very well with movement so if you're rock climbing in cooler weather you should be fine. I bought these for bushwhacking that would normally tear up my normal hiking pants, and these have no problems whatsoever, whether thorns or rocks, doesn't matter. Since they are so overbuilt, they're a bit stiff out of the box however after a couple of washes they flex much better. Couple of things to consider before buyin these are that since they're so tough it makes them pretty warm, so you're going to want to wear them in cooler weather. I found when I started to sweat they would stick to me and make my movement much harder, especially travelling uphill. They're also a very heavy pant and way overkill if you're just backpacking on trails. I love the look of them though, very subdued and natural looking. These would be perfect for cool weather rockclimbing, heavy bushwhacking, and bomber work pants. They run a bit smaller than the Ryder and I haven't seen them in brick and mortar stores so like others have said, size one up from the Rydr.
Layin down the law
I have worn many a work pant. They don't begin to compare to these. Sure dickies, or carhart make great pants but not like the Law. These pants are heavy duty, but they are also quite comfortable and look great. You can dress for a day of lumber jacking, or crawling up jagged rock faces and still look good at the pub on the way home. No complaints for these pants. The mfg suggests to buy a size bigger due to "true to fit measurement" see kuhl website. I concur with this assessment. I bought them as suggested and they fit great. If you are 33 in the Ryder or Fugitiv then go 34. Trying to compensate for too large a pant by cinching down with a belt defeats the purpose of the specially designed waist of the Kuhl pant. That's my $0.02.
