Bought for travel and comfort, fits the bill! I'm 5'1 and the 28 length fits great. They are flattering and stretch with you. Love the zip secure pockets. As usual, Kuhl quality is superb. Very happy with these pants.
Great pants and will wear them often for daily life and for hiking/camping. They make that "swish" noise a bit when walking but you get used to it quickly and don't notice. Flattering in the back. I'm 5'9" and got the 32" inseam which comes to my mid-ankle. I would have traded for the 34" inseam if it had been in stock but these pants still look great with sneakers and boots.
One word. POCKETS. The pockets on these pants are deep and durable. The zippers feel secure and do not rub or stick out weirdly. They are well integrated to work with the pant. These pants fit so well and stay up all day. Wear them with or without a belt and you will be impressed. I got caught in a rainstorm in the evening while backpacking and in between the rain showers these pants dried so quickly I hardly remembered them being wet. They are lightweight and breathable during the day while also being durable and stretchy. I couldn’t be more impressed with a pair of pants. I am a petite person (I ordered a 0/29L; weight 110; height 5’2”) and was concerned about feeling like I was swimming in these pants like I have with other brands, but these pants fit petite figures so well. They look stylish when wearing around town and are the only pants I will wear when hiking and backpacking.
I am a great fan of your company and products and of the many that I have bought and enjoyed from you over the years, this is the first I had needed to return. Too big in the waist but true on the legs. The fabric feels like plastic against the skin. They buckle around a side zip and don’t lay flat.
I loooove these pants. I work with horses and have been on the hunt for months on end for a breathable but professional looking pant that he belt loops and pockets and was skinny style. I’m a size two and I felt it runs big. I still kept them but it’s loose around my ankles and they slide down even with the belt. It makes me wonder if I should have even sized down. I want to order more but don’t feel the sizing is accurate so trying to decide to just stick with them being a bit loose or not.
I bought these pants (black, 0 short) for a 9 day trip to Jordan, filled with lots of hiking. They are pretty much the perfect travel pants: flexible but keep their shape, comfortable for flights, four zippered pockets for security, easy to wash and dry overnight, and a great flattering fit (hard to find!) without being too form fitting for more conservative countries. After coming home, I also wear them regularly because they are so comfortable. Wish they came in more colors and had more in stock!
Best pair of pants. The fit, the fabric, the color (I got the slate blue) are perfect. I’ve purchased other pants with similar fabric and they feel slippery or make that “whoosh” sound when you walk...but these don’t. They’re super comfortable and attractive. I’m seriously considering getting another pair in another color!
