Interesting story about where the name/color originated from!

Khaki isn't khaki
I ordered these pants after getting a different style pant at the local Outdoor Provision store, as they carried only a couple of styles. I love the fit and feel of the pant. I am perplexed by some of the color descriptions, as I feel they are misleading. The color Khaki in several different styles is actually a green shade, not a light tan as you normally expect and as it appears on the website. I looked for a pant in a true khaki color, but have realized they just don't come in that color. [True. You're right. We wish we could change that name or the fabric color for everyone's sake. Truth is, KUHL insists on the accuracy of the name Khaki to a pantone (color swatch system) that has green in it. The story is that Khaki is the color of the dusty green British Army uniform that turned tan in the Indian continent. ~KUHL]

I love the look of these pants. My only problem with them is the cell phone pocket. I'm 5'7" and wear a 30" inseam. When I put my cell phone in the pocket its so low that the phone strikes almost below the back of my knee. This doesn't seem to be as big of a problem on the heavier weight pants like the Rydr, but its much more noticeable on these and the other light weight ones I've tried. Its probably not a big deal if you are wearing 32" inseam or longer though. [It could be that the length of the 30" inseam is a bit long and is hitting your leg in the wrong place. Unfortunately, that is the size inseam we have that would best fit your size. Not sure why it's different in the Rydr or heavier weight pants, though. Thanks for the feedback! ~ KUHL]

Nice pants. After trying multiple styles of Kuhl pants, these seem to run larger in the waist. Also, as was mentioned in another review - the khaki color is very inconsistent between pant styles. I got a pair of these in Khaki and they are more of what I think you'd call gun metal, a few shades darker than the khaki in my Revolvrs. The dark brown color is very nice though.

Keep Making Great Stuff
I love these pants. I'm 6'4" and 270lbs and it's not easy to find pants that fit properly. I have a pair of the carbon Slackrs and they haven't faded a bit. I'm on the site to buy a backup pair (since I can't ever find them in the stores) and a couple of other colors. Thanks and keep up the good work.

I love these pants,use them for every day work pants. Only one problem: Where can I find more to buy,everyone is out of stock for this model!!!!

Bought a pair over a year ago and am buying more now. Feel light in the summer heat and warm enough in the cold. Stains wash out and no fading in dozens of washes.

I bought these pants at REI. They are indeed very comfortable, but are a little bit longer than expected. Anyway, I had them shortened and they fit very well and are extremely comfortable. On the other hand, after a couple of washes, the color starts fading and they really look much older than they should: I wore them maybe 10 times and washed them 4 times, and they look like they have been washed 50 times. I have also noticed the same thing with some Kuhl kaki shorts that I bought a few years ago (surprisingly not with the same shorts in brown), so I suspect that the dying process may not be optimal. Too bad, I wish Kuhl would fix that.

Excellent for professional attire
I wear these pants for sales calls and presentations. Because they don't have the Kuhl logos and are stylish enough, I can use them for professional work attire. I have Rydr's, Revolvers, Crag Kanvas, etc. and love all my Kuhl pants - I just wish they would make a few more like the Slackr including a few more colors so we can have more options for business casual work attire. Go Kuhl!

Great pants. Great customer service
I have owned my first pair of Slackrs for just about 5 months. They are my everyday workpants. I also own 3 pairs of Rydrs and wear them to work on a regular basis. The slackr is a lighter weight version of the Rydr and super comfortable without the weight and stiffness of the Rydr. I unexpectedly tore out the seat of the Slackr pants while struggling with a hard to handle dog in our clinic. I am a slim 32/34 fit and the pants in no way were too tight. After posting a review with concerns about durability Kuhl immediately contacted me and replaced the pants because of concerns that it was a faulty item. Way too go Kuhl. I keep coming back to your products because of the style and quality.

Reviews from REI.COM of Slackr pant: Slackr aint no Slacker!
Comments about Kuhl Slackr Pants - Men's 34" Inseam: I am hard to fit. I am 6' 5" tall and have been a runner all my life. I have long legs with big thighs that don't fit any clothes. I had some extra time and tried these 40x34 on as a whim. I bought them on the spot. They had no more in stock at the REI in Charlotte, so I went home and bought more online. They fit my thighs and have a little stretch that makes little things like climbing stairs less binding. --By SSGPat from Charlotte, NC

smaller waist sized needed!
When will Kuhl make their paints available in smaller waist inseams? A 28in. or 29in. waist inseam would allow some of us skinny folk to buy your paints! A 28 in. waist and 30 or 32 inch length is pretty common combination.

"Patina Dyed" = "Fades quickly"
This is the best fitting, most comfortable pair of pants I have ever owned. The only downside is that after less than 10 washes (according to instructions), these pants have faded well beyond their original color. Yes, they say that will happen. But it doesn't make it look cool and vintage, it makes it look like old worn-out pants. "Vintage Patina-Dyed" is nothing but clever marketing for "Cheaply dyed, rapidly-fading pants." [I believe you have a return/repair issue that will quickly be remedied by our customer service department. Our dye process may have failed on your Slakr pant. While it is certainly designed to fade and weather, what you describe sounds like it may have been defective.~ Kuhl Social Media] "Hey, Iâ??m pretty impressed with your response! Thanks a lot, Iâ??ll consider whether or not to exchange the pants and Iâ??ll definitely be a repeat customer!" ~ Paul

I found my first pair of Kuhl Ryders while I was at Jackson Hole, WY attending a meeting in the Grand Teton NP. I liked them enough that I bought a pair of Revolvers, and then the Slackers arrived under the tree for Christmas. Wore the Slackers across country in my 2500 mile road odyssey back home to the east coast- very comfortable!

Slackr Pant Way Kuhl
Just received my Slackr pants and they are outstanding! Styling is very kuhl and can be worn equally well at work, late night carousing or chopping wood! Other positive is that they come in odd sizes (33, 35) so you can get a pair that really fits. Only downside is the front snap which is way cumbersome - a basic snap would be preferred. Also how about a light bone or sand color for summer wear? Enjoy!

Vintage Patina Dye
Originally developed in Italy, this high quality double dye process will naturally fade with age, exposure and wash. These experiences create authentic character and a weathered appearance that echoes your own. Follow care instructions: For best results launder with garment inside out in cold water and use mild detergent.
Free Ryde Waist
Another hallmark of Kühl design, this feature incorporates the Kühl Yoke Waistband –it follows the natural contour of the human body. The hips rise in the back and so should your pant! The Free Ryde Waist provides a contour fit to keep the pant in place as you move! The Free Ryde Waist also has a longer length from belt top to crotch for extra room to extend your range during crag hops and bouldering maneuvers.
These imported Italian snaps found on our pants lay flat against the body with no stem to dig into your waist. The Kühl Fiocchi™ Snap has been custom engineered to increase the closure strength.
The art of joining things in such a way that motion is possible. Where the knee bends, the elbow crooks, and the shoulders join the trunk and arms, articulated construction builds movement into the design. This includes gusseted panels (shoulders) and darts –on knees and elbows, darts gather the fabric to articulate those body parts’ natural range of motion.
Incredible combed cotton twill is finely woven with a high thread count and stretch. Add a super sueded finish and you've got WUNDURA™. It's a super fabric.
