I bought 2 different style shorts and 1 pair of pants, all size 33. These were only ones that felt very tight. Also the hand pockets were oddly small. I returned them. Nice material for hot days and water activities as I believe they would dry well... just not a good fit.
I ordered the Inferno (8" inseam) RipTides and the shorts fit great. I honestly wasn't expecting the shorts to be so soft to the touch. As with all Kuhl pants/shorts you get an abundance of pockets but you couldn't tell with these (just like every other pair I own). The color; its perfect. I initially thought it would be too bright but its not at all. Once again Kuhl made an amazing product and I can't wait to wear these out on the water (and in and around town).
Fantastic fit! I like the tapered leg openings. The The material is light and comfortable and offers flexibility when doing any kind of activities. Looks like I’ll be ordering another pair in a different color. Kuhn Continues to provide style and functionality in all of their clothes at the design. I’ve virtually don’t wear anything else.
My new go to water shorts! They perform great in the water but look good enough to wear around town! The fabric is buttery soft with just the right amount of stretch and the buttoned/gusseted fly makes them easy to put on and take off.
I have purchased maybe a dozen pants and shorts over the years in size 34. One of the two pairs of purchased was as expected. Unfortunately the pair of Mesh Water Shorts was too small to even get on. Although it also said size 34 it would not come close to being correct. My problem was I had washed them before trying them on so they could not be returned. Quality was good but please don't make the $75 mistake I did.
