These are terrifically comfortable, super cute, and the perfect length. As in all things Kuhl for me, I size up. Every other brand on Earth I'm a 2, and with Kuhl, always a 4. I know what to expect now.
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: Thanks for the feedback. Your fit notes will be forwarded to design.

The Durango short 6" (also called "Free Range short by some dealers) shorts fit and contour incredibly well, and they are true to size. The fabric is great - quick-dry and cool but substantial. But the design cuts unusually high up into the bottom (i.e.: up between butt cheeks). If you look at photos of the various Kuhl shorts they almost all seem to do this, so it must be intentional, but I don't understand why. It's not flattering, and it's not particularly comfortable - although the Kuhl fabric is so stretchy and the fit otherwise so contoured that it's not a real problem. Just looks a bit odd. Please fix this Kuhl! I am thin, with minimal bottom... how do curvier women wear these without displaying a new cleavage?
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: We are adjusting this pattern with a new fit for Spring 17! Hope this change will help you.

I love the way these shorts fit & feel. The only problem is, the color at the mesh insert at the leg zippers & all of the bar tacks is aqua blue instead of orange as shown online. Luckily I like the aqua blue. But if you are expecting orange you're out of luck!
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: Thank you. We will update the photos.

Just got these shorts in the mail today and I don't wanna take them off! They are so soft and comfortable, they have a LOT of stretch, and the rise is perfect. It's pretty high in the back and comes to just under my belly button in the front. I'm 5'8, and got these in a 12. They are a bit loose in the butt and thighs but fit fine in the waist. I will definitely get a lot of wear out of these this summer!

I wore these while hiking in Arizona, they were perfect! The fit is great, the waistband was comfortable, the leg openings didn't constrict movements, the fabric breathes well and they were very comfortable in the heat.
Well made, fun design. I have to size up always with Kuhl.
Great shorts - not too long or too short. Perfect for travel because fold up easily and are not too heavy, yet fabric is also sturdy and substantial. Waistline is very comfy. I do wish the pockets were larger - too small for an iphone 6+. I would buy them in additional colors (as well as the Durango pants) if available!\n
I like the fabric and fit. I love the length. I have stronger thighs and they are a little snug in the leg. The little zipper detail on the leg helps. Not bad, but different fit than the Kontra.
I haven't worn these shorts too much yet, but I love them. Great fit, great quality, and I love the details.
