Kuhl makes great clothes. The trick is figuring out that they run a full size smaller than other leading retailers...llbean, eddie baurer, lands end. Nice stretch. Decent size pockets and cargo pockets.
Over the years I have learned that I need to order a size up with Kuhl compared to ALL my other pants and shorts. This is already a size up and it is still snug through waistline. I also ordered the Splash 5.5, in the same size, which I will be returning, different cut/style and definitely too small! Activities doesn’t allow me to choose more than one answer. I would use these shorts for all the activities listed below, (except work), but yes on everyday no particular activity. Love your products except for, ...having to remember when I order or purchase in a store to size up. Even sales clerks have mentioned this to me about Kuhl products. Thank you, Cindy B.
If these shorts were half the price I would buy a dozen of them and try to make them last the rest of my life!! One day I wore them to work (casual office job), then went rock climbing, then went for a run, then rode my bike to the grocery store. Paired with quick-drying undies the sweat was dried within 20 minutes, no chafing, no waistband stretching, no riding up or down because they're so lightweight. I have thigh rub and the 6 inch inseam is just barely long enough to prevent chafing. 5'9", 165lbs, size 10 is a perfect fit. I'm not a Kuhl fanatic but now I'm an Anfib fanatic. I need more colors...
Ordered 9" inseam version in size 8. 5'5". 136# w/ runner's build. Size eight was like a sausage casing although I wear this size with room to spare in other activewear brands. Also seemed short for 9", so I got out a measuring tape and checked -- yep, the inseam was 8", not 9". Irritating.
I think that Kuhl's sizing is not dependable. I had ordered the size zero based on reviews here but returned because they were too small and tight. So, I ordered the size 2 and they were way too big. Returning them as well. These shorts are pretty long but I wanted them for boating excursions. Think that I will need to keep looking.
These shorts fit true to size (size 2, I'm 5', 105#). The fabric has just enough stretch to be comfortable when sitting or bending and is wrinkle/iron free. After buying my first pair to try them out, I bought two more. Perfect for an active lifestyle!
Brought these hiking in Hawaii where it was muddy and lots of streams. The shorts dried quickly from splashes and light rain. When I fell into water it obviously took longer to dry but by the end of the hike they were dry enough for me to not changes clothes. The zippered pockets fit an Iphone 8. Super comfortable and good looking shorts. I purchased a size 6 which fit well for me (5'6 and 140 pounds, medium build). I also purchased the another pair of shorts from Kuhl and they were a little too big in the size 6 (sorry I can't remember the name of the other pair of shorts)
I had been waiting for the Hykrs to come back into stock and took a chance on this new one. And so glad I did! Love the material and the thigh pockets for my phone. If I had one suggestion, I would make the thigh picket just a bit deeper so you could zip up a larger phone. I have an iPhone X and I can't zip up for security.
I absolutely LOVE these shorts! Perfect fit, perfect material and super comfortable! I have the carbon color and plan to order them in blue. I’m 5’6, 120 lbs and the size 4 fits great! More colors, please!
