Konfidant Air Pant
Super-light hiking pants are killer, until a branch rips the entire seat out, leaving your derriere out in the mountain air. Made from a fabric that strikes a good balance between strength and weight, Kuhl's Men's Konfidant Air Pants will withstand heavy wear when you're exploring abrasive sandstone hoodoos and remain comfortable when you're walking your favorite mountain trails during the dog days of summer. Kuhl's Enduro fabric is made with a combination of cotton, nylon, and spandex, which keeps these pants durable, light, stretchy, and quick to dry. They also feature UPF 50 sun protection, making them ideal for desert adventures. Even better, Kuhl integrated its new KuhlAir technology, which features 11 vents throughout the pants to help keep your skin cool and comfortable when you're on the move in hot and arid climates.

Great design, runs slim.
I have the Renegade and the Radikl, both have the same fit. I purchased the Konfidant Air in the same size but had to return. The waist fits the same as the others but the thigh area is much tighter. For reference the widest part of my thigh is 26 3/4in. If the fit was the same as the other Klassik fit pants Kuhl makes I would buy multiple pairs and give these 5 stars.

I love these pants from their fit to their flexibility....especially the French Zipper and the Gussets. Wish Backcountry could get more colors and sizes. Plus I love the free shipping!!!!

Great pants, good fit.
Great pair of pants with nice ventilation. Using it in the heat and for fast paced fall hikes. Maybe I'll try winter to see how it holds up. I found the pants to be very snug, but almost perfect. I have muscular thighs and glutes, so the fit is a bit tighter than I'd like- the stretch helps a bit. The crotch rise is a bit short for me, and almost "suffocates" the groin area- not sure if this will be an issue in extremely hot climates as one would prefer a looser crotch for those instances. If you don't have too much meat in the thigh and glute region I'm sure these pants would be quite loose. Too bad these don't come in a "Full," version. My measurements for anyone in need of a reference- Thigh : 28 inches ( measured around thickest portion) Seat : 45 inches ( measured around thickest portion) Hope this helps.

I find these pants to be light but not too light, well vented and nicely fitting. Contrary to other reviewers I donât find them tight or restricting. I also love having left and right low side pockets!

Light but rugged
I was looking for a lightweight pair of pants to wear in a hot environment and yet a pair that was rugged enough to handle some rough treatment. I found them. Are use these while on the disaster relief trip to the island of Barbuda. Climbing up and down off of houses while doing a roof repairs. In the sun from eight in the morning till five in the afternoon. These pants can breathe, They can get wet and dry out fairly quickly and they can take some of the rough stuff. The articulated knees made it really easy to climb up and down. For several days I would hop in the shower at the end of the day with the pants on. Gave them a good rinse as I washed myself, hung the pants out on the clothesline to dry and put them on the next morning ready to go. When I got home I’ve put them with the rest of my backpacking gear. These are definitely going with me every time I go.

Wish All the Kuhl pants had this color
Love the pants and especially the color. They seem to run a little tighter to me and not quite as flexible and comfortable as the Radikl pants I own with the more "stretchy" gusset. I like the "air vents" that are everywhere.

Great pants for canyoneering!
Bought these pants to go hiking/canyoneering in. This past weekend I put them through their paces and found them to perform very well. Comfortable and flexible enough to climb in while providing protection from Arizona's notoriously prickly scrub! I will be buying more of these pants.

Kuhl Konfidant Air pants are 2nd fave!
Second fave because while the pockets are deep and big, the opening is a little tight which proved to be a nuisance to wear to work...so my husband says. He loves Kuhl pants in general so when summer time heat hit, I snagged these for him to wear to work. In his words, they're featherweight but strong (referring to the no-rip, no wear material) and best of all, the cut and stretchiness give ability to use a wide range of motion. Kuhl is also known for providing a full variety of waist/inseam sizing so he was stoked to get his favorite size: 34-30s which fit perfect!

Brutal Fit - Skinny Dudes Only
I generally LOVE Kuhl's stuff, and own their pants, shorts, shirts and hoodies. These are the first item I was utterly disappointed with. Most of their offerings are sized for the athletic build - which means, butt and thighs you actually use. These were super tight around my thighs, so much so that my wife got a good laugh when I squeezed into them. Athletic does not mean skinny. These are going back. (The two stars are for Kuhl's usual quality materials and finish.)

My favorite pants ever My favorite pants
Was looking for an alternative to my jeans when cold weather made me stow my shorts. Love these pants. They feel like they were made for my body. No pinching at knees or crotch even when stretching. Cell phone pocket is perfect for my iPhone 6. Best pants ever

Kuhn is Cool
I needed some pants to take with me (and wear multiple times) while on my recent trip to Guatemala. These were exactly what I needed and much more than I'd expected to find. They helped keep me comfortable (and cool) on the hot days and were comfortable enough for were on the bus (4 hour ride up into the mountains) as well as in the steep and hilly areas we went.

Quality, versatile product
I previously purchased this product in tan. So pleased, I had to buy second color. Light, stretchy fabric with contour cut; articulating knee, gusseted crotch. Every day use. Ample pockets. Side pocket on right leg for phone, left leg for sunglasses, four pants pockets, one coin (keys) pocket. Ventilation on legs, can also be used for pockets. Good value, expect years of use.
