    by fromSuprisingly awesome! I was hesitant at first about the fabric, I had some Kuhl pants with a similar design, but the fabric was incredibly thick. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and saw these were much more lightweight. Even with the lighter fabric, they still have Kuhl's trademark tough design. These look great in almost any situation! I just wish they came in a dark blue!

    by fromLove these shorts! I bought these in the green a few months ago and love them so much, I just bought them in the khaki color. They are very comfortable, breathable and stretchy. They're great either long or folded up.

    by fromThese were great I bought these to go on my first backing hike. My husband also bought a pair of men's shorts in this same brand. We both really liked them. I thought they were going to make swoosh sounds based on the material but they didn't. He noted how he got some water on them and it beaded off. I wanted something like this because I knew we'd be sweating and didn't want to end up with sweat soaked pants. I also read some other external reviews that mentioned they were a little heavier duty which I liked because I didn't want ripped pants due to jaggerbushes while out in the middle of nowhere. This fit the standards I was looking for.

    by fromRoll up the cuffs & hike Love this Kuhl brand, sturdy stitching but lightweight material, wash & wear! I have 2 pair ,green for serious hiking-wear and beige for not so serious fun-wear. I roll the cuffs up -shorts that aren't showing to much thigh. My favorites in my closet.......

    by fromGreat shorts Comfortable, great length and love that they can be rolled up. I feel that they run small so order a size up as they have no stretch. They are spendy but worth it as they are versatile and look great.

    by fromSuper cool shorts Bought these a week ago at full price. They are now on sale so I took my receipt to REI and got credited 20 dollars a piece. These are awesome! Buy these now while they are on sale. Great length. They look great. They are nice and thin for hiking. They can be long shorts length or capri pant length. There is a tie on the inside to adjust the waist. The snap is really cool on these. I love, love, love these. I agree with the last person about them running smallish. Best to try on if possible. I went a size up from what I usually wear.
