I'll break it down into Fit, Style, and Feel: Fit - definitely runs smaller in the waist than all the other 34x34 pants I own from Kuhl (Konfidant Air, Ryder, Revolvr). It's not a super uncomfortable tightness, but it's absolutely noticeable and enough to make me return them. They are too expensive to not be perfectly comfortable.
Style - I do not like the off-colored stripe down the side at all. It didn't look so bad in the pictures, but I can't stand it in person.
Feel - They do have the signature comfort and stretchiness that defines Kuhl for me. So in that sense, I see why many people would love them if the stripe and waist weren't an issue.
Overall, I don't see how these beat the Konfidant Airs in any capacity.
I wore these pants to work and they were super comfy though at first I thought not baggy enough. Then today I wore them to jump in and I think I may have found my new skydiving pants. They feel great, move well, and are just right for what I was looking for. I will probably get another pair here soon as the weather gets colder. Thanks Kuhl!
I love these pants, vented on the side and hey move and stretch where and when needed. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard cool pants, and I reply yes but Kuhl is spelled a little different! Thanks
I own 4 pairs of Radkil pants and have worn them weekly for the last year. I work and play in the outdoors of the Pacific Northwest and I I literally wear these everywhere; from the conference room, to the grocery store, to Mt. Hood. I have found these pants to be exceptionally durable and very reliable. The zippers and fasteners are have not failed and I can work them with gloved hands. The fabric is highly abrasion and stain resistant, the colors have not faded significantly and all stitching remains intact with no fraying or visible damage even with frequent washing. I do wash them on a gentle cycle but that’s mostly due to the requirements of the other items I generally wash along with them.
These pants are a good fit and I do love how you don’t feel them as you bend and move but I do think the stretchy parts of the pants are a little much and could be toned back. Also I wish I had order a more tapered version, my legs kind of swim in these. But they are warm when the wind starts to blow and I can move quickly in them which I love.
Stylish, and great slim fit . Great for everyday and smart enough to go out in the evening. Relatively lightweight material. easy enough to move around in. I love these pants so much just ordered another pair in a different colour. My wife loves them on me too :)
I test military equipment for a living and wore these pants for a 5 week event through woods, hills, and water crossings in 70-90 degree humid conditions. Pants held up perfectly, dried pretty quickly, and were extremely comfortable. I was worried the stretch material would fray on sharp branches or rocks but I didn't see that happen at all. Im a larger guy and the stretch panels are a savior for fit and comfort. Klassik fit is loose enough to be comfortable in "action" but tapered enough to be modern and stylish. Looked great in both shoes and hiking boots. I've only had them for about 2 months so now so I can't speak on long term durability just yet, but so far I love everything about these pants.
Like these pants alot, been wearing them for my morning dog walks, in both colder temperatures (~25 degrees) and warmer weather (~50 degrees). Going to Colorado later this month so will give them a try in colder, snowy weather.
As other have noted, the top bottom to secure pants at waist is just a snap, not a more secure button so doesn't always stay secured. I suggest Kuhl consider changing this to a true button like on most denim jeans.
Fit is good and are comfortable to wear, a little roomy below the knees, but still comfortable. I think they run a little long (30 inch inseam) and they bunch a bit on top of my shoes, but that might be a personal preference to have them "break" at shoe top. Have not washed them yet, so don't know if they will shrink at all after washing, time will tell.
This is my seventh pair the pants from Kuhl. They feel exactly the same as all the other ones I have received from this company. They are of the highest quality and the fit is amazing. The comfort and durability is wonderful.
Purchased a pair of the Radikl pants and love them. The fit great and feel even better - will be perfect for sitting around the house during a pandemic, or getting out for a hike once things open up again! Thanks Kuhl for a fantastic pair of pants!
I bought a pair of Radikls at REI for a backpacking trip to the Great Basin Nat'l Park. These pants are the BEST. They move with you and the breathable panel in the crotch is unbelievably comfortable. I liked them so much, I ordered two more pairs.
Love the pants. True fit and great feeling pants. No restrictions with movement. One thing - the right side "cell phone pocket" was made smaller than all your other pants and shorts. Yes; the left side works but its not the same. The cell pocket works so well.
Extremely comfortable, great look, and I can wear them to work and then dinner with the girlfriend. Very versatile pair of pants. I now have 5 pair In different colors. Great brand, great quality. Also like the shirts and jackets
Such great pants. These are the kind that have stretchy material along some of the seams. This allows great range of motion regardless of the activity. They are so comfortable and yet they still look good enough that I feel comfortable wearing them on a night out instead of khaki pants. Talk about a win-win.
I purchased two pair - one for my adult son and one for my adult son-in-law. Both fit to a tee and both guys LOVE them. One will be mostly hiking/trekking in them and working sometimes and the other the opposite. Score one for mom!
