Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pants Like Carhartts but way more freedom of movement. My only complaint: the crotch wore out in about 5 months of regular use. This doesn't happen with my Carhartts. I don't blow crotches out on my pants. But I had multiple holes wearing through, just below the zipper, before the gusseted part. I patched it, then I started getting more holes around the patch. Seems like a weak point. But I love the pants and just put on a brand new pair this morning. The old ones would have lasted many more months if it hadn't been for the hole in the crotch. This new pair will be a good test to see if my first pair just had a flaw, or if they're all that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged, Durable Pants I really like these pants, they are thick and feel like they will last me many years. I was hesistant to buy because they are heavy and thick, which does not pair well with the humid NC climate in the summer. The thickness really just has to do with the quality stitching and the durable material, so hey, what can you do. I have washed the pants about 4 times now, and I do notice so definite fading (which appears in white streaks), but it is actually pretty good looking fading that will look even better as I let them age around my thighs for a couple more years. I do recommend these if you want a pair of pants that will last a while, it is worth the money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These did not hold up The pros: These are nice and warm, and offer a lot of freedom of movement for being this heavy. The con: These rip so very easily, in the lateral direction (with the grain) of the fabric. The first wearing, I caught the twig on a bush, and instantly ripped a 2 inch slice in the fabric. Within 3 wearings, there were small slits forming laterally, radiating out from each rivet in the back pockets. within 6 uses, these are now worthless. Now, I like to rock scramble, and I am hard on my pants, but my regular blue denim jeans last at least twice as long. And for what these cost, I am very disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great fit but fatal flaws These are heavy pants that look and feel great the first time you wear them. They don't feel cheap and hold up to hard wear (I walked through thorny gorse on a an English moor with them). But, the pants have two flaws in workmanship that forced me to return them: --The button snap popped open at inopportune moments. --The dye--at least in the Indigo color I bought--faded in streaks down the legs after the first wash. They looked terrible. REI took them back no problem, and a store associate gave me advice on how to wash jeans properly. That's not the problem with these pants, and I wouldn't recommend them until Kuhl works out the kinks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor customer service, bad workmanship I purchased a pair of Khul pants to take on a 2 week vacation overseas. After wearing and washing them 1 time, I packed them for the trip. On the first day of the out on the trip, I noticed a small hole near the pocket. Once I got back in the States, I sent them to Khul for repair/replacement. Unfortunately, they sent me a very short letter stating the issue falls outside of their warranty. "Generally speaking, our products are covered against defects in materials and workmanship. blah blah blah" Well if this isn't a defect in material and workmanship I don't know what is. Needless to say, I will not purchase another pair of their clothing and I recommend others doing the same.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Button Snap opens on its own. Nice thick material These pants fit the perfect build in that I was looking for a pair of rough work type pants. I wanted something for projects around the house and could also wear around town without looking like a construction worker. Everything is fantastic with these pants with one major exception. The Center Top Button Snap (above the zipper) opens by itself. I'm not sure why Kuhl chose a type of button snap that I've never seen before. The pants fit me well, but the snap will pop open if I kneel or sit down. The solution is to wear a belt which keeps the snap from moving. Unfortunately, since the pants are a nice fit on my 32" waist, I didn't plan on wearing a belt with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These pants fit like a glove... I (my husband) wear these (and Revolvr) for two week stretches and still get compliments! In addition to there functionality, they just look great. Note that the Rydr doesn't have the inner front button closure so taking care of business is a little easier! While my preference for summer is the lighter Revolvr, these are suitable for year-round wear. Note that I carry an HTC Incredible which BARELY fits into the phone pocket. I don't think some of the newer phones (think Galaxy 3) with larger screens would fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Comfort Ever these are the most comfortable work?casual pants ! Ultimately if they were $10 less and had 2-3 more belt loops , I would never by Carhartt again !, and I would buy 3 pairs a year.

I recently purchased Kuhl Rydr in indigo from the Alderwood store to wear for work. These are the "full" fit. I was trying to order the Klassic fit but the website doesn't differentiate. How can I specify Klassic fit ? 32w-32inseam indigo. Thanks.

Asked by: BR19
We carry these pants in the full fit only and, unfortunately, have no way of special ordering the klassic fit.

How much do these pants shrink in the wash? Do they shrink in the waist or lengthwise?

Asked by: aklocal49
The Rydrs are pre-shrunk and will not shrink. Kuhl states the following: "We develop our own exclusive fabrics that will not shrink." Kuhl will also provide detailed washing instructions on the tag attached to the pants.
