Great casual pants with tech overtones
I've been wearing Revolvrs since 2015; got 3 in short order, and then the new ones are my 4th pair. My old ones were all cotton fabric, which I like for comfort and the way the color fades in and the fabric wears in. Soft and comfortable. The new cotton/polyester blend fabric was a bit of a shock, but does accomplish 2 important things: 1) the little bit of added Lycra helps the pants to hold shape when they've been worn for days without washing; 2) the blended fabric resists shrinkage, especially in length - an issue with the all-cotton fabric. So, nice. Otherwise, same great pants with subtle redesign. Kuhl added a nice phone pocket to the left hip; it manages to be easy to use (at least for an iPhone 8-size phone) and unobtrusive. The cut of the front pockets is subtly different, so that the pants don't try to unseat my clip knife from the pocket when I sit down. The fit is overall a bit better than earlier versions (which I already liked); not sure exactly how, and could be partly the new fabric. To sum up: I like these pants, and the new ones have that rare quality of having improved over time.

Size Cut Dramatically Varies
This is the third pair of Kuhl pants I have bought and every single pair has a different cut. REI in my town did not have size 28 waist so I bought 30 because they fit decent in the store. When I got home and washed them and then started to wear them they became 4 inches too big, I could fit my fist in between my waist and the pants while wearing them. I sold them to a secondhand gear shop. The second pair I got, same problem again. I got a pair of size 28 waist Kuhl shorts from Backcountry.com before the pants and they fit great, I have worn them all summer including lots of work on the farm I worked for, great shorts. I decided to get this pair of Kuhl pants size 28 waist here on Backcountry.com and they were extremely tight in the waist. I washed and dried them just the same as I have the Kuhl shorts for months and it did not help. These pants do not fit true to size although the Kuhl shorts do. These pants are painful to wear even though they are the same size as the shorts I have that are very comfortable. It is very frustrating to have wasted so much money on these expensive pants, I am lucky that I have only paid retail price once and that it is very easy to resell them. I will be hesitant to ever buy from this brand again. They have nice features and good style but the variance in size cuts for the same advertised size is absurd for the cost of the clothing.

Totally agree! Same thing happened to me. KUHL sizes are very unreliable.

Wear These Everyday
After trying both the Revolvr, and the tapered leg variant Revolvr Rogue, I’ve settled on the original version as my preferred because I typically wear some variety of boot and the wider bottom leg just fits better with boots. And although both versions are said to have similar cuts in the seat and thigh, I believe the original version to be just a fair roomier in those areas. Having a cyclist’s thighs the extra bit of room in the legs just makes the Revolvr feel better to me. Both variants, however, are great pants and the feel of the fabric, along with its patina, make these my absolute favorites for everyday. They’re also perfect for travel because they fold up so small/thin and are wuite lightweight too.

By far one of the most comfortable pair of pants I've ever worn. They fit great and are exactly what I need when working outside in the S Georgia heat all summer. They are great work pants but also look good enough to put on for a night out. I have 4 pairs now, will get more if they create more colors.

Durable, comfortable, functional - just fantastic. I have big thighs and I’m used to tolerating pants that don’t quite fit right in some way but these are perfect - super comfortable through waist and thighs with out being baggy or too loose anywhere else. Highly recommend.

Three pairs and counting
The Revolver is my favorite pair of Kuhl pants and I find myself reaching for these year round, from rolling the legs up on summer nights to chilly winter mornings. The light stretch fabric feel great and moves with me. I love the stetchy pockets as well. Having tons of pockets really help me to keep everything organized. The fit is true to size and a little relaxed, which feels perfect. Make sure to wash these pants inside out, the fabric has a tendency to fade over time if you dont!

great pants - but watch the colors
Love the fit and the comfort of these pants. But be careful on your color selection. I bought Carbon - I wanted a slight gray coloring. I looked at the colors on backcountry and the Kuhl website just to make sure what I was buying. Disappointed when I finally received them. Carbon is greenish. No gray whatsoever.

Quality down from original
Quality is not the same as the originals and also not as advertised: not reinforced at cuffs (the originals were). I have 5 pair of Kuhl pants. The last 2 have had threads start to come undone. after light use. This pair has horrible pockets that are lined with what feels like nylon stockings that pill like a bad sweater. Who the heck wants to feel that? Who wants the pocket to allow pokey things - like keys - to poke into your leg? Pockets should be strong and comfortable. I'm also not a fan of the stretch fabric and think it may be the cause of the baggy crotch of these pants that look like diapers. I think Kuhl is like many companies that found a good formula and a good product and then took shortcuts to increase the profit margin. Maybe they will correct this and get back on top. But for now, I will not be buying another pair of very expensive pants that aren't even worth half the price.

fit on these is perfect, they fit right on the hips. Perfect for outdoor adventures, for casual wear, or around the office.

Professional and comfortable
I work at a school, and I wear these everyday. They look professional, cool, and allow me to be comfortable for my long work days. I know some people have been dissatisfied in these pants, but I can't imagine my life without them.

Nice looking, poor fabric and dye
I have gone through several pairs of Kuhl pants now. I really love the styling and cut BUT this company has still not figured out their fabrics. I keep buying them because I hear that they have figured these issues out but I am continuously disappointed. This last pair was no exception - after several washes there are ugly blotches (not the attractive 'weathered look' they try to sell you on). My previous pants developed rips in the pressure areas like where the rivets attach the back pockets. I wish they would figure this out because I do love the pockets and stitching. They are much more stylish than the average, butt-ugly, cargo pants, but please try and get some quality fabrics! I realize there are multiple fabrics now - if anyone has found a more durable version please share a post!

I love these pants. I've worn them through two field seasons out in the desert and they're both tough and light which is great when hiking around in 100 degree heat.

Durable and versatile
Iâve used these pants doing just about any outdoor activity. Theyâre great for hiking, climbing, alpine activities, and shore fishing. Theyâre pretty comfortable and have some stretch to accommodate climbing and scrambling.

Such overall great pant-casual & work
These pants sooo amazed me as a very versatile and extremely comfortable pant. They are so well designed - ergonomically and fit. They move without restriction and have the most amazingly comfortable feel. The fabric is soft like cotton but have amazing durability and nice look. What's impressive is how thin the fabric, but how incredibly durable they are. They can take a beating. This is my second pair.

Versatile, comfy pant
First pair of these, and they will soon be outnumbering my jean. Very comfortable, able to be worn to the office or casual settings. Buying more soon.

Low quality thin fabric rips easily.
I ripped 2 pair of these pants in normal day to day activity. They didn't wear out. They were not abused. They simply ripped in surprising ways. I sent more than a dozen emails to Kuhl customer service and was met with rude responses and lack of understanding. Feel free to look at the attached picture and decide for yourself if these were worn or ripped due to poor design and cheap material. I do appreciate the offer that Backcountry made of a 30% discount and will continue to shop here. I also love my new Prana Stretch Zion Pants that replaced these. Thumbs up to Backcountry, but this will be my last purchase from KUHL.

Still a Good Choice
I think I prefer the older model...…. before the spandex was added. they were just slightly less restrictive. overall, still a good pair of quick drying, light weight hiking pants.

I have a pair of Kuhl The Outsiders model and I absolutely love them but I am having trouble finding them so purchase another pair. Which version of pants is similar to the Outsider model
