All my shorts are Kuhl! Why? The side zip pocket and of course the cell phone drop pocket. First the Renegade for camping or when I gotta get some physical work done, and the job might require getting a bit dirty. Recently, bought the Shift Stealth Amphibia for when I know I'm going to be near water (recently went sea kayaking on San Juan Island) and have a good chance of getting wet...also great on those really hot days when you want the fabric as light and comfortable as possible. And now I have these...the Silencr Kargo (2 colors so far...wanted a third but it was sold out). Wanted something that I could look good in for casual and social settings, like sitting in outside dining at a nice restaurant this Summer (which is par for the course right now given the pandemic). Besides all the other positives that others have pointed out, I personally love the 20" leg opening which is a great look for my thin legs, and the 12" inseam is perfect for my 36" inseam legs allowing them to fall in the middle of my knee cap, right where I want them.
Although pricey and can’t see myself buying too many of these. I like the fit and that they are light weight. BTW. Sizing depends on the button placement as I bought a pair of Revel shorts that are the same size but are too small because of the button placement almost 3/4 inche difference.
I've worn these shorts for the past couple of years, and just recently bought again in a new color. They're comfortable, breathe really well, and are perfect for all kinds of activities. As with most Kuhl shorts, the cell phone pocket on the side is one of my favorite features, and it makes it almost disappointing to wear other pants that don't have anything equivalent.
Perfect fit. Love the just above the knee cut. The right side has a brillant pocket on the lower back of thigh area perfect for a cell phone. It fits my IPhone 11Max day in a case. True to size in my 36. I will say, please redesign the front button that closes shorts. They will pop open if your real active in them. I wear a belt so not as big of an issue but I cannot wear them without a belt for this reason.
I've been wearing these for about a week now, and overall I am favorably impressed. The fit is terrific, with the seams put in just the right places. I like the pockets. The zippered ones offer extra storage and security without the bulk of old cargo pockets, and the phone pocket is great. I like the fabric, also; light and flexy but not flimsy. My only complaint keeping this from a five-star review is the new-fangled snap used in pace of a button or a more-common snap. It tends to come unsnapped, and if you wear these without a belt, you could be in for some embarrassment.
