KÜHL’s PR team sent me a pair of their RENEGADE™ Men’s Pant to test out. The KÜHL’s RENEGADE Men’s Pant delivered just in time for a trip I made down to San Antonio.
While it is a great pair of pants for hiking and camping, it also became my favorite pants for travel.
It’s exclusive DURALUX™ fabric is a blend of 95% Nylon and 5% Spandex. It makes for a light, breathable pant. But these pants are tough! On a hike I lost my footing and slid on my butt over some loose gravel. “Oh no!” I thought, turning around to see if there was a hole or tear on my backside, but there wasn’t. Not even a slight abrasion! I could point to several other brands’ pants in my closet that have abrasions or tears from similar falls.
Movement is great in these, as well. KÜHL’s RENEGADE were designed with articulated knees and a gusseted crotch. Climbing and scrambling over rocks was easy in these. I didn’t feel that there was a time where the fabric was too tight in these over-articulated movements.
What made these great for traveling was all the pockets; eight in total! There’s a side pocket that is big enough for a cell phone to slip in. There are two zippered pockets on the sides that were great to hold my wallet and AirPod headphones.
It’s also worth noting that these pants offer sun protection (UPF 50+) which is perfect for longer days out in nature.
I’m also a big fan of the style of these pants. They are comfortable, but they look good. When I met other team members in San Antonio they commented that I look like someone from Colorado, so mission accomplished!
These pants are available in a handful of different earth tones.
I’m 5’11” and wear a 34×32 and found them true to size.
They are available for purchase on their website, but can also be found in your favorite outdoor retailer.
