    Ultralight comfort for hot and humid weather.

    Kuhl designed its Men's Kontra Short with an ultralight cotton and nylon blended fabric for hot and humid conditions. Take it on vacation to tropical getaways, climbing trips in Mallorca, or hike around in your own hometown throughout summer. The gusseted crotch ensures an unimpeded mobility as you're climbing, and a stealthy cell phone pocket lets you take a quick photo when you reach the tops of mountains.

    • Ultralight short for hot summer days spent in the woods
    • Cotton blend fabric provides lightweight comfort
    • Regular fit offers easy movement on the trail
    • Sun-protection rating of UPF 35 protects against harsh rays

    Need a 2nd Pair

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    I bought these for my dad and he lives in them. He says they fit true to size and he loves the fit (hits just above the knee) and fabric is light-weight and looks good casually as well as dressed up.

    Good shorts, but returned them.

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    The fit and look of these shorts are pretty good, however, I ended up returning them. I was comparing these shorts directly to the Kuhl Ramblr's and the Ramblr's ended up fitting and looking just a little better. I'm pretty short and wide, so that might be the reason. These shorts just seemed a little more form fitting than I was expecting. Despite all this, if these shorts were my only option, I would be happy with them, just not as happy as the alternative.
