Perfect Length, Height, and Comfort. Not too short; not mom shorts. This is my 7th pair of Kontra Shorts. Color, style and wear are long lasting. My 7-year-old pair of Kontra shorts look just like my new order, despite constant wash and wear in hot, desert heat. Love these shorts!! I would Love a pair of Kuhl 4X34" Jeans. I never got a pair of those nice, women's Riot jeans.

I really like these shorts! They fit well - not too tight. They cross over well from hiking to everyday wear. The length is great - short enough to be stylish - but not too short to be uncomfortable for someone who is not 20 something! I like them so much I'm ordering them in another color!

Absolutely love these shorts. The fit and comfort are perfect. I recommend this short and the splash (http://www.kuhl.com/kuhl/womens/shorts/splash-55/) as well. Finally something I don't have to return. Kuhl!

Absolutely LOVE these shorts. Great fit, fashion, fabric, and wear. So awesome I can go from lunch, to the treadmill, then nap all at the same level of comfort. CON: Not enough colors and impossible to find in stock. (Trying to get size 4-6 for 2 months on several sites-sold out). Has cord to tighten the waist. Not too high waisted, or too short.

Theses shorts fit like a glove, and wear like one. They bend, turn, stretch just like I move and don't need to be readjusted. I wear them shopping, hiking, napping- same great comfort level. They meet everything I look for, but can't find, in shorts: Fit, Quality, Style and Comfort. Con: Always SOLD OUT ***. Runs large in waist, but has interior drawstring to tighten waist. I LOVE These Shorts!!!
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: Thanks Lisa! We live in ours as well.

I'm over 65, live in Texas. Thought too old for short shorts, but these shorts fit me so well the 6" leg look good, infact look\nLonger as the waist sits on my hips (preferably) giving me room to move. It's either shorts or naked so I think my neighbors will be happier too!
Fit and look great. Nice fabric. Very comfortable.
Poor sizing....way too small
These are the cutest most comfortable shorts I have ever owned. I now own 2 pairs but will likely get more.
I use them for work, hiking, and for backpacking. I would recommend them to other people doing outdoor activities.
I would definitely recommend the Kuhl Kontra Shorts! I love them. They dry so quickly and I love the varying lengths that are available. I wouldn't change a thing!
