Glad to Hear They're Not Discontinued
RATING :    5/5 FIT: True to Size

I cannot wait for them to become available once again. I own several pair, all beginning to fail because they're pretty much all I wear... it's almost a uniform for me. I live in FL and they have been the perfect shorts for this area. I wore them exclusively for three seasons in NJ as well. Hopefully they'll be back soon, I'm starting to look a little shabby.

Please Bring Back
RATING :    5/5 FIT: True to Size

These are honestly the best shorts I have ever owned! I've gone through several pair. I've just spent the past hour looking through many many websites to find another pair in my size with no luck, they're all saying out of stock or discontinued, and the Kuhl website is severely low on stock/options. Now I'm resorting to ebay for used Ambush, which apparently are hard to come by in a size 36 waist.

REPLY FROM KÜHL®: We don't know how this rumor started...let us take the time to assure the audience that this style is not being discontinued.

Keep these shorts
RATING :    5/5 FIT: True to Size

These are great shorts! I like everything about them. I found these shorts several years ago and tried them. Before, I was a long pants guy, even in the hottest weather. When I found these, I liked the fit, the knee length,the utility of the pockets, the look, the durability. I have not found a pair of shorts that I would wear that are better than the Kuhl Ambush!!! I prefer the gun metal, saw dust, and khaki colors Keep these shorts.

REPLY FROM KÜHL®: The Ambush Short is here to stay! Thanks for the Kudos.

These shorts are used for everything - from gardening to casual dining and I would recommend them to anyone who values comfort, practicality and quality. The material is perfect for Australian summers as it is lightweight, cool but looks sharp.
