The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.
Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.
Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.
Rated5out of5bysboldfromPerfectionI am preparing to leave on an indefinite, worldwide backpacking trip. My goal is to pack as light as possible and so I wanted to find the perfect pair of shorts to be my workhorse. Other than my gym shorts, these guys will be it.
With that in mind, I purchased the Kuhl Renegade shorts, size 32. I have bigger legs than most men, so i usually have trouble with shorts. Even though my waist is a 32, if available, I will purchase a 33. Well, Kuhl doesn't sell a 33 in these, so I took a chance and went with the 32.
On first wear, the shorts felt a little snug. They fit properly, but I wasn't used to the fit of the waist. I told myself to give it a chance for a few days and see if it was something that I could get used to.
Thankfully, I was able to break the shorts in, and now they feel perfect. The sizing is just right. They are long enough to be fashionable and loose enough to be comfortable. But that's just the basics...here's why you should buy these shorts:
-Very comfortable. Fabric is soft and somewhat stretchy which allows for freedom of movement.
-Many pockets including 2 zipper pockets.
I can't speak to the durability, but time will tell. I can tell you this. For my purposes, I have never owned or come across a more perfect pair of shorts.

Rated5out of5byHatchers PassfromGreat ShortsI bought these for my son for a trip to California. He loved all the pockets and how quickly they dried.

Rated4out of5byJustinMRfromGood ShortsThese shorts have quickly become my favorite pair. They're comfortable, fit well, and look good. The color kind of blends in, and matches a lot of different shirt colors. I hated to pay so much for a pair of shorts, but I like most Kuhl clothes, and these seem to be worth it so far.

Rated3out of5byres2010fromFeels good to wear but could be better.I have three pair of these shorts after purchasing and trying the first I very much enjoyed the casual fit yet functional design. My only real problem is the button on the inside flap has failed on two of three pair with moderate to light use. I went to darnding it and the fix seems better than the factory. Small zipper pockets on each leg and they are great for ID and a little cash. Had occasion to be hiking and needed to wash these in a creek. Took out some of my biodegradable soap and set to the washing. Cleaned up nice and dried real fast. Only other issue is while sitting on a log I got to hopping up as a bee was setting about to sting me, well as I took of the log I noticed the fabiric drug a little it left little balls on the fabric so not as durable as I would hope but a darn sight better than cotten. Forgot to mention these are not cotten which I am sure is why they dry faster. You need to know anymore about these shorts your welcome to ask me or just go to a store I don't think you can go wrong. last thing they are a little spendy though I like them I would only own a few.

Rated5out of5byDylan the BrutalfromPerfectI had a pair of Kuhl zip off pants and I lost some weight. I bought the Renegade shorts and these are now my go to shorts. They fit perfect and go with everything. I really like the slim fit without being too slim. No big baggy cargo pockets to ruin the look.

Rated5out of5bytexjsleighfromAmazing shortsI had been looking online. Before paying the expensive price tag, I went to REI store and tried on. Right away I was sold. Never have I had a more comfortable pair of shorts (like gym shorts except breathe better and have lots of nice pockets, and fit well). I have ran, climbed, and hiked in these. They are well made and not dorky. They work for casual wear too around town. I got size 32 which are the same as all my pants and jeans etc. I am 6'1" and 175 lbs. There is another very similar Kuhl shorts called raptr but too short for my style. I like the 12" Renegade.
