An awesome looking and fitting short. I bought these for my husband and really like the little longer length as he is tall with long legs. My only complaint is that Kuhl as a brand is very inconsistent with sizing. We purchased these same shorts in carbon too and he wore a 32 in that as opposed to a 34 in the brown. He also has a pair of Kuhl Krux shorts that is a 32 and even larger than the 34. Thank goodness for Zappos free shipping!

An extremely comfortable pair of shorts. My experience with Kuhl has always been great, with great quality and attention to detail. These shorts are no different. They fit true to size and with the stretch fabric are incredibly versatile for hiking, climbing, bouldering, or just running errands around the block. They are a bit expensive, but with this type of quality I expected to pay more.

My husband loves these shorts. Lightweight and an easy fit. We live in Arizona where it is approximately 180 degrees in the summer and these shorts look nice enough to meet with clients. Great design!

Amazing piece of clothing tech here! I have never worn a more comfortable pair of shorts. They are crazy light and the stretch fabric gives in all the right places when in motion. My wife loves the way they look too, so that means the Renegade shorts get an A+ across the board. Time to get pair #2 in khaki.

Stellar shorts. The fit is relaxed but not too baggy. These are quickly becoming my favorite hiking shorts for climbing 14'ers here in Colorado. Good protection, quality construction and uber comfortable. The side leg pocket holds my point & shoot camera perfectly.

These are the most comfortable, best looking shorts that I have owned. They are all I want to wear in the summer. The downside seems to be durability. I have stitches coming out in two places and I am not all that hard on them - just walk, ride bike (note - the stitches in question are not anywhere near crotch or seat, so riding is not the issue), running, etc.

Very comfortable in hot weather, but they are a bit baggy if you're in the middle of size 40 and 38 for men. I tend to have to use a belt every time I wear the shorts.

Excellent material. Just thick enough to not seem like a pair of board shorts but thin enough to not bind or feel tight. I love 'em!

These are the most comfortable pair of shorts I currently own. The color (Peat, I think), is lighter than it shows in the picture. I used to wear the Prana Stretch Zion shorts, but they have removed some of the pockets and tightened up the fit. These are still plenty long, and not too loose.

Great shorts. Stretchy material, great fit. Decent pockets with zippers to store all your stuff. There is a 2nd button inside these (like a pair of dress pants). If you're going out drinking this extra button can be a pain. Awesome shorts non-the-less!

After my husband raved about these shorts, I thought I'd get a pair for my very picky father. He loved them, too! So glad I finally got him a father's day gift he will enjoy! He likes the pockets, the feel, and the length (He is 6 ft. tall). My husband loves that they are lightweight.

These shorts are very comfie and allow plenty of movement. I like the longer length and they don't feel like it's too long. The fabric is kind of like a bathing suit and water just goes off it like a duck. However, it's not a bathing suit yet is very stretchy. The fit is great and with the stretch makes it so you can easily put things in the many pockets. Even with all the pockets the shorts don't look all bulky and lame. The right side phone pocket is a little big for the current iPhone5 , but maybe with the upcoming bigger model, it might works even better. I have many K hl pants and always get a 33. I originally got a 34 in these shorts because Zappos didn't have it in 33. Later, I got another color in the same style in the 33 and realized I should have gone with the 34 like my first pair. You know the drill...Zappos hooked me up with the exchange, no prob. That's why Zappos rules. These shorts do too. Pricy, but worth it and you might need to go a size up.

Great looking, light-weight shorts. Purchased these for my college-aged son to wear for summer work. Kuhl clothing runs a bit smaller than other brands so I ordered up a size. The shorts fall just above his knees (he's 6' 2"w/long legs). The smooth, lightweight texture of the pant and the modern fit make this style a definite keeper!

Honestly I don't know what the hell color Breen is - brown/green...little bit country, little bit rock and roll? Whatever it is, the shorts transcend any baloney about color palettes. Super functional, won't bunch up your "boys" in a climbing harness and cool enough to keep em happy. Zip pocket holds cash/stash with no fear of loss.

Love these shorts. The material stretches in two directions and it feels great, not too stiff, not too flabby. The fit is great. The waist stays up in the back when bending over so you don't have to constantly tug at your pants when moving around. The pockets are very useful. The legs are just right, not too baggy, not too tight. I wanted the look of the longer length covering the knee without looking like a kid wearing his favorite NBA team shorts (no adult should go around looking like they're wearing a deflated hot air balloon). I use them mainly for playing disc golf and they are great for that purpose. I bought a second pair in the 10" length and they are just as comfortable and great looking as the 12" length.

First bought these shorts in Carbon for my husband two years ago for travel from another on-line vendor. So excited to find them on Zappos and have since ordered 4 more pairs of shorts and three pants because he loves them so much and fears Kuhl might stop making them. Most comfortable pants and shorts he's ever had and they've been all over the world. Never had a seam split or lost buttons. Still look as good as when they arrived. In Thailand, he washed them in the shower and hung to dry in a hot window and they were ready to wear in under 30 minutes. Would also like to see them in black for a dressier look but he's been able to dress up the carbon color pretty well for the type of casual travel that we do. Highly recommend for anyone who wants light weight travel pants and shorts that don't scream tourist with the zip-off look.

Best shorts ever! They are made of a stretch type material, very light, and super comfortable. I now have all four colors they come in and wear them almost exclusively. 6 stars if it was possible.

I just bought two more (although they are different styles). I can't believe how comfortable these shorts are. I'm a boardshort kind of guy but these are much more comfortable. Hiking, swimming, even lounging around. Expensive, yes. Worth it, definitely.

Awesome fabric is lightweight and very durable. The stitching really makes these shorts stand out. They are perfect for any outdoor activity. My favorite pair in the drawer, so much, I bought the black too! The service from Zappos is by far, the best anywhere - 5 stars, hands down!

Great everyday shorts that also look nice. The material is comfortable, breathable and seems to repel liquid and stains. I have three pair in different colors if that helps. Probably the best shorts ever made.
