Excellent pants for climbing and hiking.


  • High-quality material
  • Comfort
  • Breathability
  • Doesn't restrict movement
  • Durable

I have the Renegade in both the Shorts and Pants versions, and I primarily wear them climbing and hiking.

The stretchy, light fabric is what sets these apart from everything else I've ever worn. They are very comfortable, and easy to move in, which is the primary reason I purchased these.  The pocket options are great as well, especially with the side pocket that zips shut.  

I've put these through a beating in all kinds of conditions and terrain, and the aren't showing much wear, even after 2 years. 

I have the charcoal/gray color, which looks great.

Kuhl Renegade Pants take the path less traveled to get you to the top. While the industry was focused on techno-tight fitting softshell hiking pants, Kuhl opposed this conventional thought and created the Renegade pant. The Renegade features an anatomically engineered Free-Ryde Fit and Kuhl's signature style that goes from cliff wall to the cafe with ease. The articulated knees and gusseted crotch combined with a four way stretch fabric feels so comfortable you'll think you are wearing sweat pants. But one look and you'll know they perform well in high aerobic activities, and the added DWR helps shed any chance of afternoon liquid sunshine. Plus plenty of pockets store any gear you'll require and double as vents. Featuring Kuhl's Tufflex fabric: Soft, Flexible, Tough. Don't slack when it comes to hiking pants - the Kuhl Renegade should be the standard. 34" Inseam. Tufflex fabric: 91% nylon, 9% spandex for 4-way stretch. 4.9 oz. per square yard fabric weight. Soft-shell fabric is UPF 50, wrinkle resistant, and dries quickly. Athletik Fit: Relaxed fit to accommodate athlete's thighs and hips. Articulated knees + Gusseted Crotch = Freedom of Movement. KuhllAir Vent System. Double needle bar tacks at critical junctions for reinforcement. Cell phone pocket helps keep you organized. Easy care wash and wear. Kuhlair: With multiple mesh vents, Kuhl-air-flow technology reduces perspiration and keeps your skin cooler for improved comfort and performance. Athletik Fit: Built for the outdoor athlete with a need for pants with roomier thighs-skiers, bikers, hikers and rock climbers. Outdoorspersons who need extra room to accommodate powerful legs benefit from the wider pant leg for exceptionally functional movement. Athletik Fit is a foundation of Kuhl's pant designs for unconstricted movement. Articulation: 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. TUFFLEX: A durable woven stretch soft-shell with a soft brushed back for komfort. This incredible, versatile fabric is lightweight, quick drying, wrinkle resistant, and ideal for your active lifestyle. UPF: The Ultraviolet Protection Factor (or "UPF") rating system measures the UV protection provided by fabric. It is very similar to the SPF rating system used for sunscreens. A fabric rated UPF 30 is blocking 96.7% UV; UPF of 50 blocks 98% of the UV radiation. Skin cancer risk can be reduced with effectively limiting the amount of exposure to the sun's ultraviolet light spectrum. Available Color(s): Carbon
