Just got back from a hike in these pants, and I felt great about them. The sudden hailstorm was no match for these pants - while they aren't insulated and provide little warmth, they were pretty water resistant. I didn't feel an ounce of water on my legs during the four hour trek. These pants are amazingly stretchy and comfortable, second to yoga pants.
The only downside is that Kuhl claims they are meant to fit mid to high rise, but when wearing them, I have to slouch them to low rise in order to avoid awkward riding up in the crotch. Other than that discrepancy, great pants for day hikes and in general.
Feels true to length
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
