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.

Favorite shorts
RATING :    5/5 FIT: True to Size

I am a fan of these shorts! I'd be a bigger fan if there were sizes in stock. Kuhl has been my favorite shorts/pants for nearly 2 years. I won't buy any other brand. So comfortable! I'd buy 5 pairs if you had my size in stock!

Now My Favorite Goto Short
RATING :    5/5 FIT: True to Size

I just spent a month in Belize where it's always hot and humid (and being from the northwest I was constantly sweating), and these shorts (I have two pair) were the perfect ticket! Since I'm tall (36" inseam) I have the 12" version which sits right at my knee cap, right where I like it. In these conditions the stretch fabric was a necessity, and the water repellency was great because it could rain at any time. Pockets are well positioned to keep wallet and cell phone away from upper thigh for easy mobility.

sizing all over the map!
RATING :    4/5 FIT: Fits Small

I've bought several pairs of Kuhl shorts and pants over the past three years (REI and online at, and each time the sizing is WAY off. In the same Renegade pants and shorts, I own size(s) 32-34 and they all fit the same. I've had to return shorts in size 32 for size 34 and pants in size 34 for size 32 and vice-versa. I love the material and look of all my Kuhl pants, shorts and shirts, but not sure what's happening with your sizing lately - it's super frustrating! For expensive clothing, it would be great if you could get your Chinese manufacturing specs to higher standards.

REPLY FROM KÜHL: Your comments are taken seriously and are being forwarded to design and production. We will do better in the near future. Thank you for your feedback.

5 stars
RATING :    5/5 FIT: True to Size

I have owned a pair for the last 4 years and they're still going strong through multiple adventures in many different countries. The fit is amazing if you have more muscular legs and the flexibility in the design allows for an unparalleled freedom of movement, no matter your activity. I've worn them from cliff diving in the carribean to mountain biking in Nevada, to hiking through the mountains of Washington and colorado, to walking the streets of urban Japan. They're also great for travel, weather it's a road trip or trans-continental flights, they breath well and are great for stashing stuff in easy to access places while rushing through a securit gate. The pockets are well placed and sufficient for just about anything I would have wanted to stick in them. I wish more of the pants followed suit. Highly recommend these shorts!
