Why We Like The KUHL Silencr Kargo 8in Short

The KUHL Silencr Kargo 8in Short won't tell anyone about your secret fishing spot or geo-tag any secluded trails on social media, but it will get you to all those places in comfort. The durable 4-way mechanical stretch fabric gives us complete freedom to scramble up boulders and work our way down craggy shorelines, and the Free Ryde waistband ensures a secure, comfortable fit the entire way. The DWR treatment repels moisture from light rain, allowing us to push through wet conditions to reach our destination, and the UPF 50 protection allows us to enjoy hot, sunny summer days to the fullest. The sharp design manages to pack in seven pockets without adding bulk, so we can bring everything we need for a day of exploring without having to sacrifice on style.

My Favorite Shorts

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
5' 7"

These are the best shorts I own and worth the price. Very comfortable and I’ve now gotten a pair in each color (10” in Carbon color, 8” in the other two). The fabric of the Silencer is fairly light and breathable, with some stretch. It also seems durable as I’ve had these a couple years, wearing them regularly, and they show no noticeable signs of wear. I especially like the 8” length for packing on trips because they’re versatile enough to look a little dressy. They work equally well whether worn casually with a t-shirt out on a hike or paired with a polo to go golfing or out to dinner. I’ve frequently gotten comments from people on how nice they look. (I also have a pair of the Radikl shorts, which are uber comfortable for hiking, etc. but the fabric and cut have a much more casual look.) The Silencer has the standard Kuhl drop in pocket, which works great for a phone or glasses. Try these — you won’t regret it.
