I have several styles of Kuhl shorts, pants and skirts...this is by far the best pair I now own! Very light weight, fit is awesome. I wear a 12 and this style fits better (more comfortable) than the Splash shorts. Please offer them in more colors...would love black!!!

I am a raft guide on multi-day raft trips in Hells Canyon. These are the only shorts I've found for women that are durable enough to hold up to the job that are also quick drying and comfortable. They are the only shorts I wear on the river! I just wish I could get them in more colors.

These are my favorite shorts ever! I love the 9 inch length and they are great for hiking and just everyday life. But I've been trying to order additional pairs of size 12 nine inch and they have been out of stock for some time, when do you expect to get them in stock?
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: If your size is unavailable, please use the email notification tool that should appear when your size is out of stock. You will receive an email when they are due in stock and the due date should appear on screen.

Great river swimming shorts ~ love the side pockets, though the zipper pulls were super small and I added little grippy tabs. They were out of the color I wanted so I got the teal and am quite happy with them so far! Must remember to empty pockets before swimming.
REPLY FROM KÜHL®: Been there, done that. Smart Keys are expensive to replace! Happy Swimming.

High quality product, good for water sports.
Love this shorts for any outdoor activities, fits well and comfortable.
I love these for a walk on the beach or a walk in the city.
These are the perfect board shorts for any water sport. Very comfortable.
I didn't care for the color once I saw it in person and the design across the back made my butt look too flat.
