KÜHL® User Reviews
I've been a Kuhl fan for many years and love several of Kuhl's pants (wear the Mova Skinny pants nearly every day)! After reading about these pants, I was sure I would love them, but I was surprised to find the fit so far off that there is no size that can fit me. The waist area is quite large, as well as the hip/crotch area which causes bunching in that area, and the drawstring only creates gathers in the waist that are too much. When I tried a size where the waist & hip area was kind of OK, then I could not fit these pants over my knees. Granted my knees are not tiny, and my thighs aren't either. I'm wondering if Kuhl decides that when there is less Spandex, then the waist & hips need to be much larger, and the legs need to be much skinnier. The baseline shaping (when the fabric is not stretched) is way off for my body shape, and I'm not far off "normal". I have a waist, and not super large hips, and my legs are probably more on the "athletic" side, though not extremely at all.

I wear a 4 in almost all pants because I have a larger butt but a small waist and standard thighs/calves, but these pants were kind of loose around the front pocket area then tight around the thighs/knees. kind of weird fit, but quality pants. sizing up did not help my fit, but would fit someone with thin thighs well.

I'm a big fan of this brand and I buy their products whenever I can. These are slim fitting but more or less true to size, maybe a little bit on the smaller side of sizes. I love the slimmer leg and zipper detail. These pants are stylish and comfortable and I wear them for around town things but they'd also be great for hiking. I'd say these would be comfortable for summer, fall, and spring depending on your climate. I have larger calves so these were a bit harder to maneuver in when I was bike riding, but if your legs are normal size they'd be comfortable. Overall great pant! Stylish and modern.
