The rise on these shorts is too high, so when sitting they are too tight in the crotch. The leg openings are a little too wide. Front pockets could be slightly deeper. They are good hiking shorts in terms of the number of pockets, the length, and the fabric.
The material these shorts are made from is perfect for hiking. Light enough but thick enough to sit on rocky ground. There are issues with the design--the snaps easily come undone, the side pockets are not quite big enough to hold a phone and snap shut, the rise is a little low. Almost a great design, but not.
These are by far my favorite shorts. I have almost every color. My phone fits nicely in the lower pockets as well as my keys, dog treats and glasses. They fit true to size, wash well and are a perfect length for me.
Like other reviewers, I feel like the sizing has changed a bit from the pair i bought a few years back. They feel a little shorter to the waist and a little tighter on the crotch area. I am still keeping them, although my old ones are more a little comfortable.
These shorts are perfect for summer activity: super comfortable, hold up well during heavy activity like hiking, durable fabric, have lots of pockets and they look cute on. Also, the colors are great! I know have four pairs. I like a loose fit in this style, so I sized up.
I love Kuhl shorts. I ordered these in a size 12, but they fit more like a 9 or 10. I have three other pair of Kuhl shorts, all in size 12, and they fit great, so it's not me getting fatter! :) I returned them and have not decided if I will try ordering this style again.
Love these for daily wear. Great for hiking, unless the weather is 85 or higher. Would like to see this company come out with the same style but with material that is good for hot weather hiking and about 1" shorter for hiking.
Fits nicely, although I’m really somewhere between at 2&4. I wish it had the drawstring like the pants if the same name. Also bummed that the color wasn’t quite as I expected, but that may be my computer.
I’ve worn Kühl Splash 11’s for about 10 years now. They fit perfectly, exactly what I want in a short. Nice enough for dinner out but built perfectly for a good hike. This is my 2nd purchase of 2 pair. The first ones are still great for hiking, shopping, working around the house. The new ones are to wear to more well dressed occasions. I will never wear another brand of shorts. Kühl, please never stop making these!
I liked the length, but I am tired of the low-cut waistlines and short rises. For the size I got, I feel like the wide legs make them look extremely masculine and the low cut waist makes for maximum muffin-top. Even though I am really active, it was definitely a blow to my self-image! I only recommend Kuhl bottoms to my young and/or slender customers. They just aren't flattering if you have any sort of belly.
I love these shorts but I don't get the sizing,,,,I have a few pair and size 4 seems to fit.....I just had to return a pair because they were too tight, yet I was wearing another pair that size at the time!
The Splash 11" short are the perfect short for my frame and my lifestyle. They are lightweight, comfortable and they breath well in the hot and humid Texas weather. I appreciate the added protection of the length of these shorts. The design of them and the back pockets are flattering. For reference I have a muscular but straight build, 5'7", 128 lb. size 4 fits great! I will buy more pairs.
I love these shorts! I did a lot of research on what shorts to buy and these were the ones I thought would be best, so I finally bit the bullet and bought them, and boy am I happy I did! most reviewers said that they run small, but I went ahead and ordered my regular size and they fit perfect. I'm pretty cheap, so spending $65 on a pair of shorts was hard for me, but it is worth every penny. They are great for every day, for hiking, for camping, for shopping around town, anything! They are comfortable and they never slide down like all of my other shorts and pants do. I will definitely be ordering more.
two years ago i bought a pair of these shorts and instantly they became my favorite shorts ever! i ordered two more colors the next year. this summer i ordered two more colors! they are comfortable, durable, and wash well!
