Summary

The Kuhl Liberator convertable pants are cool and comfortable. Tough, breathable material is perfect for camping, backpackign and hiking. I would definitely recommend these pants.

Pros

  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • True to size
  • Lightweight
  • Good material

I spent a long time finding 34" inseam convertable hiking pants. Not many fit well, or are true to length. I tried on the Kuhl Liberator in the store and loved the fit. The length was perfect and waist was right on.

I took these on a camping/hiking trip a few weeks after purchase. The morning was chilly, so I started with full length. Half way through the second mile, it started to warm up. The bottoms unzipped very easily from the knee area. They zip up enough to be able to slip them over your boot.

The fabric is tough and comfortable. They felt good through the first 12 miles. I've used them for much more hiking throughout the year. They are still in great shape and comfortable.

Manufacturer's Description

The Kuhl Liberator Convertible pant has a mountain-town style that slyly masks the two-in-one design.  Mobility-enhancing spandex strips mimic the zipper lines, so they stand out less, and small slots swallow the zipper pulls.  And for hiker who say the backcountry is no place to worry about looks—that function always trumps form—don’t worry:  The Liberator also packs a best-in-class array of clever technical features ~from BACKPACKER MAGAZINE 2012 EDITORS CHOICE AWARD

The Kuhl Men's Liberator Convertible Pants are versatile enough to handle an intense day of climbing, a trek across the Pyrenees, or a weekend canoeing trip. Stealth zippers are set into a spandex band for added flexibility and to keep the zippers' profile as low as possible, and DryPoint fabric offers total comfort and easy wear. Even if you get wet fording a stream or during a slippery portage, these pants dry quickly so you don't stay soggy.
