The KÜHL CABO SHORT features a soft fabric with built-in stretch. The innovative rib knit inside waistband rolls over to the top edge for supreme comfort. KÜHLKURVE fit makes the CABO SHORT extremely comfortable, and the internal draw cord provides a custom fit. The front pockets feature rib knit facing for added style.
Look no further if you’re looking for shorts that are not too short, perfectly fitted to your frame (not loose) and stylish! Love the blueish/green color for summer! I’ll be ordering one in every color.
This is my 2nd pair - loved the first pair so much I immediately ordered another. Wish they were available in more colors. They are a bit snug at first, and again after washing, but the fabric loosens up some after wearing...
I bought a second pair of these this summer. They are super-comfortable in hot and humid weather. They look great and are of high quality. They run a little large, but that makes them more comfortable in hot weather. The elastic drawstring helps with fit. Mine are size 4. I'm 5'4", 112 lbs and fairly narrow through the hips. The pair I got this year is exactly the same as the pair I bought last summer - except for the color.
These are perfect shorts. Not too casual and not too fancy and so so so comfortable and great pockets. They are the best shorts I have owned - completely versatile in terms of where you can wear them. But, also a fantastically great hiking short. I got a size up as I find Kuhl's pants to be tight on me. However, I could have purchased a six instead of an eight. The good thing, however, is these shorts look great even a bit baggy.
Well, all I can say is “You get what you pay for.” Kuhl clothing is a little spendier but it is long lasting, expertly made and fits me beautifully. I now own four pairs of pants and four pairs of shorts. I plan to be a life long customer. I wear these items for numerous activities. The fabrics are so wearer friendly that they look fresh and crisp all day.
I ordered both the Cabo shorts and Cabo pants. The shorts seem to fit perfectly, but I have not worn them yet. The pants fit nice, except they do seem to stretch out by end of day. Also, I am 5'2' so I ordered the 28" inseam, which is a tad short. Overall, I am please with this purchase.
Light strong fabric, well made shorts with usable pockets
These shorts are a strong, light weight fabric, well made, so comfortable. I'm 5'7", 155 lb and the 12 fit perfectly. Deep enough pockets to use - strong snap and zipper. Can look dressy as a short or casual. Highly recommend.
I love Kuhl clothing. I've been wearing their pants for about 12 years and have always loved that they fit so well on my small waist and larger hips. They also make my butt look great! Unfortunately the Cabo shorts are not the fit I'm used to. They are more of a straight fit, are not as flattering on my rear end, and the length didn't work for me. These were longer than they appear in the photos. I was also between sizes. I ordered this pair and the Trekr 8" at the same time- both size 8 which is typical for me in Kuhl (I'm usually a size 6). The Cabo shorts were a little tight while the Trekr was too big. I reordered the Trekr in a 6 (which fit perfectly) and the Cabo in a 10, but the 10 was too big. I'm sad these didn't work, as I love the summery look!
Pockets easily hold my phone, so uncommon in women’s clothes. Comfy and fit is good, although the legs are a bit wide, don’t look like the model pictured. Maybe after I wash them they will relax and shrink. I still like them but they feel a bit sloppy. Really light weight but still substantial fabric.
Seriously - the perfect length, stretchy enough to move with me while still holding their shape, pockets big enough to hold my oversized phone, and they make my butt look great (Sorry, but that matters to me! Don't judge!) If you are having a tough time deciding between two sizes, you are safe to go with the smaller size. It's not that they run small, as much as the stretch of the fabric and the way they are cut makes it so a smaller size works.
Really really love the shorts, fabric, everything...except. Those pockets! I carry a phone around with me, and phones are generally not getting smaller, so what's with the pockets? Lady pockets I guess. oh well.
I really love these shorts. They feel great, the fabric has a nice pattern and they are very lightweight. I do think they run a little big. I have other Kuhl shorts and pants in size 10. These I got a size 8.
These shorts are just what I was looking for- well made, beautiful fabric, great length, and Kuhl quality. I did have to order a size up as others have recommended. I just wish it came in a few more colors!
