Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pants but where is 34" inseam? The fit, finish, and style of these pants is awesome. But how about a 34" inseam for some of us taller folk? Being 6'3" has some advantages. Unfortunately it's not usually the case when it comes to clothing sizes. Other than that, this is a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pants I've ever had These pants have a great color, but are extremely light and tough. I've worn them into the office with a blazer. I've also fallen in the street and bashed up my knees -- but no marks to the pants. Can easily be cleaned with a wet wipe. I don't think these will be around much longer, though...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The most comfortable pants I've owned, but... Super comfortable pants, they feel like your wearing sweat pants. When kneeling down, the fabric stretches rather than cutting off your circulation. They look and feel great. I bought these for a trip to Europe, and they were great pants to wear on the flight. After the first day of walking (about 10 miles) the fabric formed a bunch of fuzz balls in the areas that rub together when walking (crotch region). After about 4 days, the back pockets started getting fuzz balls from rubbing on seat cushions and were looking quite used. Pretty disappointing for "travel pants" especially considering they were expensive. This was my first pair of Kuhl pants, and I'm sold on the comfort and cut of Kuhl pants in general. I found the Radikl line more durable, they have stretchy fabric in key areas that make them just about as comfortable as these without the fuzz ball issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cargo Pants Evar There's not much to say, except these are quite possibly the best pair of pants I've ever owned. I say this as a person who obsessively avoids synthetic materials too. If I could make one small criticism, it would be that the cargo pocket opening/zippers could be wider (the volume of the pocket itself is fine for me, but sometimes I have to squish/fold items to fit them through the opening). Of course, I also wish they were cheaper, but that goes without saying... I love them so much, I own two pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KUHL Raid Pant AWESOME! Replaces my everyday pant for travel, work and hiking! I really like the comfort, stretch and look. True to size. If these pants are anything like the other pants KUHL makes I've got a pant that will last me for years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfotable jeans alternative I purchased pants a month ago and I have worn them 5 times all day long. They look good enough to wear as a jeans alternative to work with a button down shirt. They only came in a 32' inseam, which is puzzling since I would have liked to have a 33' inseam. The pockets are awesome as there are 6 total pockets, all zippered and they do not jump out at you and scream "look at all my pockets" like some other trousers. The two smaller zip pockets on the back side are perfect for keys, a cell phone, change and other small items. These are not hot when walking around in 80-85 F. I pared with a 38 Kuhl Raid belt and they work well. I have also used outside when mulching and working in yard. They clean up well and hold their shape. Only cons are: Expensive and do not have a 33 or 34 inch inseam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all aroun pants for working on forested land I bought these a few weeks ago to use on my tick containing woodlot. The draw string at the bottom fits snugly to booth and provides a good barrier for the pesky ticks. I use permethrin in as a screen over my outer layers. Pand do not bind no matter the position. clothes. They are ideal for my use. Many pockets are a plus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable These pants are great! They give you full freedom of movement and are very tough. They are great for any activity. The only con is that after washing them I noticed piling of the fabric in the crotch area of the pants, this could be from drying the pants on a higher temp than recommended.

Which of the three fit styles is this Kuhl pant?  The Klassic works best for me but the last that I ordered on line came in "full" fit.

Asked by: opatashiker
these are full fit....I just got them in 34" and while they are a bit big, I hate tight pants and 32" would have been too tight. And since REI does not do the in between size of 33", and Kuhl no longer carries them which would have been the perfect size, I went with the larger size. But they are more of a roomier style.

Are these a decent rain-pant.  Hiking in Oregon next month and would like to buy these for that.

Asked by: Mike
These pants are not waterproof, rather water-resistant and are not considered rain pants. For more selection of our rain pants please follow the link below:
