If you need pants that keep you cool, these are the ones to buy. They have vents everywhere and I was cooler wearing these than when I wore shorts. They do seem to run tight in the waist but then they start to stretch out. Also, they seem to run long. Super light and comfortable and they look good too.

My wife got me these for Christmas before my week-long trip to Haiti and they are amazing. She got me a size up on the waist after reading they run small (I wear a 34x34, these are 35x34 and fit perfectly). The vents in the pants kept me cool in the 90 F heat and varying humidity and the material was perfect to wash in the sink/shower and air-dry overnight. I'm looking forward to wearing these hiking and in general. The zippered side pockets were perfect for my cell phone in one leg and passport/wallet in the other. It's a shame they're so freakin' expensive, because I'd love to own more Kuhl pants.

I have around 10 pairs of Kuhl pants, and these are my favorite for warm weather. They might be a little tighter around the waist than some of the other styles, but the main difference that I notice is that they have less rise. Depending on your own dimensions, you may like this fit, or not. Personally, I love them.

These pants are incredibly light and seem very durable. After one hike into the Rattlesnake Wilderness I am very pleased. They are very breathable and, as the name suggests, airy. This is due to the fabric and some well positioned vents. I also found the articulated knees a big plus to comfort while trekking. Another plus - they dry quickly. After hiking through snow they dried by the end of the journey. I would recommend these pants to anyone hiking in warm weather. The only downside is the sizing. I usually wear a 32 but needed a 33. Order 1 size up!

I see the last poster had fit issues, and that's unfortunate. I have 3 other pairs of Kuhl pants and a 32" waist, and I ordered these in a 32/32 as well and they fit me fine. They do sit on my waist differently than the other Kuhls that I own, but they're perfectly comfortable where they are. I have similar pants from North Face, Columbia, and EMS, and I have to say that I like these better. The other similars I own are 100% synthetic, but these are a cotton/synthetic blend, and I like the way that they hang and feel better against my skin. The "11 vents" count the pockets- All the pockets have a mesh type lining that does allow for good airflow. There's also dedicated vents behind the knees. None of the mesh is actually visible while wearing them. I would buy them again, and would definitely like to see more Kuhl products in this material.
