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.

great product
RATING :    4/5 FIT: True to Size

I own a pair of Kuhl jeans and a Z-cargo short, a great product. Its technically designed to suit abuse of outdoor adventures and it delivers exactly what it promises. Its a pity that in South Africa this Renegade 12 short was is no longer available. I was looking forward to buy one. May be I must accept that your brand is not well established on our shores for your to extended the range of products on offer. Thank you for quality products.

great shorts!
RATING :    5/5 FIT: True to Size

My favorite pair of shorts! I've got big thighs and they fit comfortably. The stretch material makes them very comfortable to move around in and love the way they wick moisture. I wish they sold them in black!

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.
