Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pants These are the best pants. They are light, comfortable, block the wind, but at the same time they don't make you too hot. They are stretchy, which adds a great deal to their comfort, and the cut is great. If I had the money I would own five pairs of these pants. The only downside is the sizing. They don't make a lot of in-between sizes (e.g., 33s versus 32 or 34) and I had some trouble hunting down what I needed. They can be pricey, but they're worth it. Kuhl for the win.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are AWESOME! I bought these for a hike in Bryce Canyon Utah and almost opted not to wear them on the day of the hike. It was fairly hot out and I thought about going with shorts. I wore these instead and had no regrets. They breath really well and are crazy comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite pants I have both the Renegade pants and the long in-seam shorts and they are my go-to clothing items. Both have been true to size. The design and stitching are sharp, and they usually draw some compliments. The 4-way stretch is comfortable in any position. Regarding a couple of the points made by other reviewers: The button closure plays a functional role in the fit and "sit" of the pants, and I don't even notice that it's there. I think it helps make the pants fit better at the waist, so that I don't have to wear a belt if I don't want to and at the same time they are not too tight. The font pockets are small, but just for reference my iPhone 6 plus will still fit into them (size 32/32) and not fall out. And finally, it has been consistently in the 90's recently where I live with high humidity, often with a heat index over 100 degrees. Even so, these pants breathe exceptionally well and are MUCH cooler than any of my other jeans/pants I own, including my other KUHL pants. Even now I'm squirreling away some funds to buy a couple more pair. If you're on the fence I'd say climb down and give these a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was the perfect pants I had looked at these forever and decided to buy a pair! After about two weeks they got a soapy bad smell that literally made me break out into a rash and I could go on. I rinsed and rewashed even though I use clear fragrance free soap this was the only clothing that done this. It was weird but what I am thankful for is their excellent co-op return policy. There were no questions asked and I always have a positive shopping experience there. Great company!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Purchase Bought these for a weekend hike up north in the Grand Marais area of Minnesota. Best purchase I made for the weekend!! Temps were in the 30's-50's and these pants were great. Very breathable for the hiking we were doing that kept me cool, but were still very comfortable around the campfire. They have even quickly become my favorite pair of pants to wear back in the city. Most comfortable, stylish hiking pants I own. Will be buying more of these soon!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from front pockets too shallow for much use These jeans are being returned. The front pockets are so shallow that you can't do much with them and whatever you put in them might not stay there. Nylon varies but this nylon feels a bit too much on the plasticky side--but that impression was gained during a quick try-on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cool Indeed I purchase a Renegade shirt recently and am amazed at the TUFFLEX material. So I tried a pair of these Renegade Pants and I couldn't be happier with a pair of pants! The fit is amazing and the stretch of the material is perfect for my use - motorcycle riding. The look great and are cool for the Florida weather. I'd have all my clothes made out of TUFFLEX if I could!
