KUHL Renegade Rock Pants

Kuhl sent me these pants to test. I have since purchased another pair. Not only do I wear them hiking, but I also wear them around town and skateboarding. I love them! They have been my favorite pants for a year now. They are lightweight, dry quickly if wet, and have mesh pockets that increase breathability. I like that they have drawstrings in the pant hem that convert them into a track pant style that prevents snagging. These pants have several pockets, some with zippers.

Where To Buy


Lightweight and breathable

Many pockets, some zippered

Stylish, not boring hiking pants


None discovered in a year


These hiking pants look fantastic and are super functional. Many hiking pants look nerdy. Not Kuhl pants. These are hiking pants that you can wear all year long. They are soft, comfortable, lightweight, and breathable. They also are available in shorts.

Who Should Buy?

Hikers that want a mix of style and functionality. All Kuhl pants that I have tried are amazing. I only wear Darn Tough socks, and I only wear Kuhl hiking pants.
