Made to move, the KÜHL KONTOUR™ SKINNY SHORT 4" features high stretch fabric with a soft feel for superior mobility and comfort. Signature touches like a contoured waistband and jean styling make this short the perfect fit for warm-weather activity. 4" inseam.
Wife is age 48 and size 0 or 2...after I saw her in the first pair of shorts, I ordered more and also added the skinny jeans. This is not the old baggy lose shorts or trousers for outdoor activities, these can be worn out to a Michelin rated 4 or 5 star restaurant or hiking desert mountains. They are tailored for a fit woman.
I really, really like these shorts. Because I have a muscular butt and thighs, I love the 4" length and that they're not tight around my thighs. Awesome stretch, pockets that fit my hands (they're not huge, but also not designed to be). I did find them to run small; I'm 5'8, 135-140 and a pretty consistent size 4, but I had to send back the 4 and keep the 6 for these to be comfy. (I wear a size 4/small in all other Kuhl stuff, like dresses and the Kultivator short.) I *don't* think they need the drawstring on the inside; that seems pretty useless, and the strings just get in the way. Otherwise, a solid pair of shorts!
I am size 6 everywhere but in kuhls size 6 fits more like size 4. After upsizing all the pants/shorts, size wise they were fine, but these shorts were still really right in waist and hips (41 inches), but then flare out at thighs.
Flexible, soft, great fit and look nice on the trail or running errands. I would totally recommend these. One thing to mention, I ordered three pairs of these and two have snap closures and the third has a button closure. So, if you are partial to one or the other, you may want to call and ask customer service.
For reference: I’m 5’6” and 115 lbs. I had to send back my first purchase and get a size 4. So glad I did, these are my new favorite shorts! The pockets are actually functional, fabric is stretchy in the right places allowing for freedom of movement. Tempted to buy more in other colors!
Love these shorts! I hate buying shorts but my husband was so happy with his Kuhl pants, I decided to give it a try. I was initially hoping to get something that could go from water to land, but the quick-dry shorts weren't available in a color I wanted. After reading reviews for the Kontour Short 4, I went that direction, ordering one size larger than I normally wear (I'm 5'5", 125lbs, usually wear a size 4, ordered 6). They fit perfectly -- a great active, flexible short that can look stylish and active at the same time. May be back for more colors!
This was my first purchase from Kuhl and very pleased with these shorts. They are perfect for hiking or scrambling on the rocks outside. Fit is perfect in size 0 (for ref. 5'7, 115 lbs.). Great material that appears that it will hold up to most conditions.
Great color, sturdy, a lil bigger than I anticipated but usually I try on clothes before purchasing and because of the pandemic I usually go in blind with every product so it was kinda expected. Still fit great though!
I never write reviews, but I loved these shorts so much, I am making an exception! These are so comfortable and look great. I usually like the longer length (I go longer as I age it seems), but these are really a good length, keeping me cooler, but not too short! Can't say enough good about them...and the sticker with each order just makes me smile!
I was looking for hiking shorts but found these gems! They're basically comfortable, stretchy jeans shorts of excellent quality. I feel like they're going to last forever. Plus, the color is my very favorite! As with all of Kuhl's bottoms, I need a size 6, when I usually wear a 2/4 in all other women's clothes (5'7", 125 lbs).
These shorts are comfortable and fit great! I have a smaller waist and wider hips, and these don't gap around the middle for me. They have a drawstring in addition to the zipper and snap, so if they did, there's a way to snug them up. Fit in my usual size was spot on.
These are the best fitting shorts I've ever had. I have a VERY curvy backside for the size of the rest of me and I usually end up with a huge waistband gap in the back of my pants if I buy pants that will fit my backside. These couldn't be any more perfect. No waistband gap + great fit on the hips/thighs = heaven. I purchased my first pair in Harvest and just bought two more pairs. Thank you, Kuhl!
I recently bought a couple of pair of these shorts. They're super rugged and durable; but still soft and comfy. The reason I'm not giving them a 5 star is because they run small if you don't want them tight. I'm 5'6", about 130 and I'm narrow-ish through the hips. I usually wear 6's. I prefer my casual shorts not to fit skin tight, so the 8's fit perfectly for me. Not for gals with hips.
