Ridiculously comfortable, I even worn them with a sport coat.

Originally purchased for excursions, I am now reaching for these every week. The 4-way stretch fabric and fitment features makes them the most comfortable pants I own. They offer good wind resistance allowing me to wear them without an additional base layer yet stay comfortable in warm temperatures. The zippers have held up and are soft so they don't scratch your hand when reaching in a pocket. I also have the Renegade Convertible and these are more comfortable and thicker. Sizing is close to normal, I normally wear 34W 30L but have these in 32W 32L and they fit perfect (almost touch the floor without shoes). Cell phone pocket is a bit low and small for my tastes. I haven't experienced pilling in any areas. When taken on a canoe camping trip to BWCA, they did dry very quickly after portages.

These are the best travel pants: they fit well, have a million pockets, dry fast, and don't make a lot of noise like other synthetic fabrics. HOWEVER: after wearing them on a 3-week trip, they badly pilled between the legs in the crotch area. I brought them back to the store and they assured me they'd never seen that before and it is probably a manufacturing defect. Reassured, I bought a second pair to wear on another 3-week trip a few months later. Lo and behold: the same amount of pilling. While it's not in the most conspicuous location (unless I were prone to manspreading), this should not happen with a garment that price from this brand. I have other KUHL items that have withstood the test of time. Not this one. I should note that I am not a high-impact wearer and the pants were mostly worn while on the plane and walking around cities. I am very disappointed, as these pants are otherwise the best-fitting and well-designed travel pants I've ever worn. KUHL, please make these pants in a different fast-drying fabric.

These have a very interesting potential.\nfeel well clothed and ready for any adventure.\nAll of the above
Love the fit of garments (pants & shorts). The ease of closure is unique to your product. I use for leisure purposes, not hiking.
Although the measurements were correct and standard for all my son's pants, the Kuhl's Raid Raven fit oddly both in length and width.\n\nThe cost of the pants was over $100 yet free returns were not offered, surprising in this day of internet marketing. I won't use Kuhl's again both given the poor quality and poor customer service.
Material changed slightly from the material in the raid pants I previously purchased thru REI - both pants are great but I preferred the REI version of the raid pant.
