Light but strong material, the usual perfect Kuhl reinforced stitching and sizing. Unlike normal cargo shorts, with pockets empty these look slim, not bulky. The pockets expand to hold a ton, but stuff enough in and it will become obvious. Not a negative, just a note. These are hands-down my favorite shorts for hiking, weekend/around town, to the beach; anything. Despite a season of constant wear, they look new.
Love the lightweight material and stretchy feel, but way too many seams on the inner thighs. I’m not a big guy, 6’0/183 but the stitching rubs and it’s very uncomfortable. The stitching pattern is also different from the left leg and the right leg, so maybe I got a bad pair? I have the Silencer pants and don’t have this problem. I would not recommend this style of short.
These are the best shorts I have ever owned. Since purchasing I have worn these shorts just about everywhere. Normal wear, outdoor sports, swimming in lakes, rivers and oceans, as well as for travel. I now wear them to work every day in a manufacturing environment (for an outdoor company, not the be named, that also values high standards of quality). Seldom does anything ever work just right, but these shorts do.
I took these with me to Morocco and they were perfect. lightweight, breathable and durable. I knew I'd be doing hand washes and wanted something that would last. They worked exactly as I'd hoped. The fit was true to size. The only thing that would be a little nicer for me is a longer inseam only because I have really long legs but they don't feel overly short. I love all my Kuhl clothes. These are no exception.
I bought 3 pairs of these shorts because the slim fit and 12" length were perfect. Wear for biking with bike shorts underneath or just everyday shorts. Normally a 30 waist these run large and a 31 fit well.
