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.

This bag has toured northern Ontario in the back of my pickup. Due to its weather resistant construction its the first to get demoted to the box when I need the extra seat in my crew cab. It's not perfectly waterproof, but it's good enough to keep your stuff mostly dry if you are careful about placing it. Its done 300km in the rain in the back of a pickup and clothes stayed dry. It cleans up nicely with a damp cloth if it gets dirty. I have destroyed many cheap bags and suitcases. This one has 2 construction seasons and several trips on it and still going strong

First impression - awesome : what is this material. Then I tried them on. It's like they're made out of bunnies in the sense that they feel great. It's obvious that they're made for warmer climes and made to wick. Haven't tested them yet but if they're anything their Kuhl cousins I'm sure they'll hold up. My wife also says that these are the best looking pants I own

After going through several cheap gear bags on ski trips I finally buckled down and bought this on a recommendation from a friend. I witnessed His rolling thunder bag touring the world. Always overstuffed and mistreated. sure he'd get dinged for extra weight once in a while, but that beats buying a new bag every year. I'm several trips into my rolling thunders now and haven't looked back.

These pants got me hooked on kuhl. Bad news for the jean and work pants mfgs. The fabric is what sold it. Tough, heavy duty and a pleasure to touch. Style and fit of these pants are spot on. They are made for athletes; Mountain men; lumberjacks; you know guys who tear jeans to shreds when climbing; hiking or just lifting heavy stuff. My only complaints have to do with finding the proper size and the tendency of the pants to attract lint and dog hair. I suggest to buy them in matching colour to your dogs fur. Btw after a couple washes the Espresso colour goes great with black and tan German shepherd ;) also take note to follow washing instructions as these things are designed to fade for that broken in look. They get better with age.

This knife is great and serves 2 purposes. First and foremost, this knife is for safety, in case I have to Cut Loose while kiting, I keep it attached to my impact vest fits nicely in the MP3 pocket, and secondly, it serves as a beverage opener for a nice after session barley soda to share with the lads.

this one keeps me out of trouble --most of the time. On a serious note, this thing works great. A lot better than trying to hold your board with your knee. Small enough to throw in a gear bag and take it with you on a long trip. also, seems to be better constructed than competing model.

Lets Face it. Barefoot is best, but in my neck of the woods (Northern Ontario), wind and barefoot conditions seldom coincide. These booties are a close second to barefoot. And when it cold out, these babies keep your feet warm, do not bulge (fill up with water) like other booties, and are slim and low profile for kitesurfing. Best booties that I own.

Still own these booties in 2013 and am happy to say that they still are the best ones that i own
