The KÜHL RENEGADE™ SHORT 12" is cut from TUFFLEX™ fabric. This durable, 4-way stretch fabric has a brushed back, repels water, and dries quickly with DWR.

Our Kühlair™ vent system keeps skin kühl, while UPF 50 keeps skin safe. The anatomically engineered fit, Born Free™ gusseted crotch and Free Ryde Waist™ make these shorts comfortable for any maneuver.

The easy care, 12" inseam RENEGADE™ SHORT is the perfect travel companion. Seven total pockets provide abundant, secure storage.

Please Note For Ordering Correct Size: Consider ordering one size up! If you normally order a size 34 KUHL short, you may need to order a size 35. Why? To improve the design, KUHL re-designed the Renegade program so there is no elastic in the waistband. Please call customer service at 800-252-3185 if you have any questions.

I hiked 2100 miles of the Pacific crest trail wearing these and they where more than up to the task. Best pair of shorts I've ever had.

Don't buy these shorts unless you are prepared to wear them every day. Honestly, the way the pockets work and close, the convenience of the secure cell phone pocket, the stretch and quick-drying fabric. This short is fantastic. Nothing ever falls out and they are just amazingly comfortable. I bought one and now I want every color and the 10 inch and the 12 inch inseam. Sure, we can wear shorts in San Diego, but I live in these. They are holding up to daily wear and the salt, sun and laundering. I upsized slightly for my fit preference.

Great! But beware...
RATING :    3/5 FIT: True to Size

By now you have probably read all the wonderful reviews and I agree with virtually all. The shorts have one SERIOUS design flaw that could easily be fixed. The shorts feature two side zippered pockets which are great for securing keys, etc. HOWEVER... if you forget to zip up the contents will "eject" the minute you sit down, like in your car, etc. I have lost two pairs of glasses, countless pens and nearly my smartphone. It's the way the pouch of the pocket has been designed. Simply "remembering" to zip the pocket is NOT a good solution. I wish Kuhl would fix this major flaw!

REPLY FROM KÜHL: We believe you may be referring to the KUHLAIR Vent System, the vertical zippered pockets that act as air vents. Yes, you have to zip them up if you use them to stash your personal belongings. No changes are planned to this widely used element of KUHL design. We understand how frustrating loosing your things are and regret you've lost your glasses, pen and almost a smart phone. The pockets must be zipped in order to secure them.
