Kontra was my go to pant - even better than any Athleta or LuLo options. For warm weather day to day wear, to a CA getaway weekend, to a safari in Africa... they did the trick!! The problem is that they are no longer in stock - ANYWHERE! :-( The cargo version is too puffy on the thighs and creates a too casual look. Are you going to make these again next spring... because this fav pair got bleach stains!!!

Love these pants, love all Kuhl pants. Sadly the buttons are sharp and cut the thread holding them on, so one of my legs will not stay rolled up. Replacement buttons, Kuhl? This time I will sew them on with wire. :)
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: We will send them to you or do a warranty repair when you contact us at CS@kuhl.com. Thanks for the review and the feedback on the buttons. We will investigate your case to see why that happened. http://www.kuhl.com/content/repair/

These are my go to pants in the summer. Very lightweight fabric that breaths. I like the snap closer on the waist and the inside drawstring is helpful as they loosen while wearing. I'm 5'7 and I wear a size 10. They were a bit short on my leg, so I always wear them in the rolled up position. The loops to get the pants rolled up are narrow, so it's not as easy to roll up as some other similar kuhl designs.
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: Well said. Thank you.

Super cute style and color (have the gray and green ones)--a little bit on the looser, casual side with plenty of ease of movement, yet still stylish. Very lightweight and comfortable to wear as long pants or rolled up even when the weather is in the 90's. Normally wear a 25" waist, but these run a bit larger--however, they have the handy inside ties to keep the pants up as they stretch when you wear them. Would not recommend for outdoor rock climbers--have been using for three months and already ripped through the lightweight fabric in both knees.
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: The W's Kontra Pant features our resilient tropical weight fabric to keep you KUHL in the summer heat. While designed for excellent freedom of mobility prized by rock climbers, it may not stand up to repeated abrasion to high wear areas like the knees when used on rough granite walls and cracks. Thanks for the review!

Travel and work.
These pants are fantastic! I bought them for a hike in Belize and wanted something to protect my legs from bugs, sun and a rigorous hike--these pants fit the bill! They were thin and kept me cool and dried very quickly. Will definitely buy more!
Very comfortable for travel
