The KÜHL YOUNG GUN™ is cut from selvedge denim for a clean, tailored look. The "self-edge" of the denim has a clean edge and will not unravel, and the tighter, denser weave creates a sturdier hand.
The YOUNG GUN features a KLASSIK FIT for skiers, bikers, and hikers who need extra room in the pant silhouette for well-developed leg muscles. Our Born Free™ gusseted crotch and articulated knees allow freedom of movement, while the anatomically engineered fit follows your body's natural contours for superior comfort.
Kuhl's signature stealth cell phone pocket keeps your phone out of the way and easy to retrieve.

This is a quality product, love these jeans. General complaints: This was the only style that actually had a blue color that didn't look "black". Other denim's blue color is WAY TOO DARK. Offer a lighter blue please or bring back the blue color you had for the Young Gun. Offer a medium color blue Jean with NO TAPER. Jeans with "full seat" and/or "full legs" should not taper. Some of us have big calfs to go with our bigger thighs or would like blue (not midnight blue) jeans that will pull over the top of tall hiking boots. More color options in denim other than "black" or "midnight blue", which are extremely dark and hard to match with other clothing. The midnight blue that you are so fond of looks too dressy - which you would never wear out doors. That's a dressier "indoor" color. In case it's not abundantly clear, I hate the "midnight blue" color in denim.

These jeans fit me like a glove, and are incredibly comfortable and durable. Loves: Fit, fit, and fit! No jeans fit me like these do, and they last. I tend to go through jeans fast, so having a pair last me 2 years is saying something. The articulated knees and cell pocket are great. Hates: The PRICE! $130?? Come on, Kuhl! Also, the waist snap comes undone fairly frequently. Kuhl claims it doesn't dig into one's skin. I say "neither dose a regular button.," and that is secure. These pants basically REQUIRE a belt. All-in-all, I'm torn about whether to buy these again. On one hand, they are the best fit I've ever had, and they are extremely durable. On the other hand, the waist snap can be a bit of a pain, and the price is steep. At $130 for a pair of jeans, I want perfection.

So, I just received my order of the Young Gun jeans & had several things I loved about them when I tried them on. However, they had one thing that I hated & was a fatal flaw that is making me return them. Color = 5 Stars Denim weight = 5 Stars Fit - Legs = 5 Stars Fit - Seat & Rise = 0 Stars & reason for the return These things have a rise so low they were competing with my briefs to see which one would win a limbo contest. Unfortunately, I have no desire to look like the people who leave their underwear hanging out, so I'll be sending these back. If these jeans had the seat & rise of the Sykeout cords, I would have kept them in a heartbeat.
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: Thank you for your feedback. We are investigating the seat and rise of the Young Gun style your comments allude to...I know many of us at work wear this pant and it is a favorite. Thank you for including all the positives you found in this jean. Customer service is going to contact you to see if we can help you.

Love the cell phone pocket and it's location. I can access my phone while sitting down and it gets it out of the way the rest of the time. The waist is a little low. That part I don't like so well but still recommend them. A slightly higher waist would earn them 5 starts for me.
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: Slightly higher rise is what you would like, I think, Russ? Noted. Thanks for the feedback. We will send your comments onward to Design for them to take note of for future production.

I was really happy to find these jeans. I am 6'1", 170 lbs, and buying jeans typically means going high end to get good fabric and fit, and still getting them tailored to dial them in. The Young Gun jeans fit me straight away with no alterations. They are not too baggy nor too slim, which is a style I prefer. They are made of thick denim, which is great for cooler weather and makes them very rugged. The cell phone pocket is awesome, and very discreet. I have an iPhone 6 with a case and have no issues either getting the phone in and out or with it falling out while wearing the jeans. As long as Kuhl carries these jeans, I'm going to keep getting them.

My first pair of Kuhl pants. I'm extremely happy at the fit. Not baggy and unflattering, but still roomy in the right areas so there's not pinching and binding. Thick denim is still very flexible thanks to a thoughtful and well engineered design.

I have been a big fan of Kuhl jeans for a long time now. These new Young Gun jeans are just as high of quality as I would expect from the company. I like that they're a pretty heavy weight denim. I want something to try and stay a little warmer this winter. They seem really tough but all of the traditional "technology" is there. The only gripe, if I can call it that, is that they are a slim fit, so the waist rides lower than I'm used to. All in all another hit

Favorite jeans! Used daily for work and play. Recommended to anyone who appreciates high quality clothing that looks great.
Wrong size was told the product was discontinued.
Really nice pair of hard wearing jeans. Fits beautifully despite my cyclist's thighs!
These are the best quality jeans I was able to find since the 90's. Thick, heavy, roomy and got that gun powder smell black jeans used to have. I can guaranty they won't tear any time soon and can fit any type of legs matching the waist size you need.
My new go to jean for all occasions
