KÜHL Freerydr Pant - Men's

The best is on a diet.

Kuhl slimmed down one of their best-selling pant to give you a sleeker silhouette when you head out in the Men's Rydr Lean Fit Pant. Its fabric has a soft, breathable cottony feel with a touch of stretch, and the pant's gusseted construction includes articulated knees for freedom of movement. There's a stealthy pocket hidden at the thigh for your smartphone.

The Freerydr is a versatile everyday pant pant. I wear them as casual as well as a dress up pair of pants. They are comfortable in all the right places and are true to size. The color was just as described on the website.

Love these pants!

Bought a pair a couple of months ago. Buying my second pair today. Excellent pants. Highly recommended if you like your pants semi-fitted, modern and durable.

These pants are designed and made with contouring for an active lifestyle indoors and outdoors. The style is great. Durability is incredible. Pockets are useful and handy. This pant tapers from the knee down to the ankle for the more slim or tapered look. Color choices seem a bit redundant-however, there are many choices. I have many of them now and don't wear jeans anymore. They have become my "go-to" all around active-lifestyle pants. -Great with button up shirts. Both long-sleeve and short-sleeve. Finished it off with some leather shoes or boots.

I've been wanting a pair of these for a while. Now I have three. Bought 32x32. Waist fits perfect but I usually look for a 31, so I guess these run a little small in the waist. The length is great. In fact I think they run slightly longer which I like. As described on Kuhl's site, the lower leg tapers which is what I was looking for. All this is consistent with the three pairs. Fabric is a bit stiff but still comfortable. The wrinkles don't come out easy but no big deal. I've been washing them inside out hoping to control the fading. The color Espresso is fading the most. But it's not an even fade. They almost have a distressed leather look. Some may find a couple of my observations negative, but I bought these pants to be the "go to pants" for outdoor use and they deliver in that respect. I don't care about the wrinkles or the fading. I do care about the fit and comfort level. I feel these will hold up quite well.

I've found on my espresso color Rydr that if you wash them in cold water, or even in warm water they won't come out with that wrinkly faded marks as long as you choose the LOW spin cycle on the washer instead of normal or high spin cycle. I've even dried mine on high and medium heat afterwards as a test and they come out looking exactly as they did when I bought them (although with normal Kühl style fading around pocket and bottom hem edges) hope this helps!

I noticed my brother wearing these pants a while back and asked him what he thought of them. He said "Treat yo self, and thank me later." I now own both these and the regular Rydr (full cut) and these are the way to go. By no means are these anywhere near a skinny jean fit. I'd compare the fit to a Levi's relaxed fit jean. Obviously these are much more comfortable than jeans with articulated knees and a gusseted crotch and stretchy fabric.
The fabric is stiff at first but don't let that put you off, they break in quite nicely. Even at retail price these pants are worth it. Pull the trigger. Treat yo self.

    I own three pairs of these pants. They're great for casual use on up to yard work. The material is very solid and durable.

    Get these pants if you want something that will last for years of abuse! Solid, quality construction that you can feel right away and enjoy for many trips to come. They fit exactly to size and if you are debating between two sizes I would recommend going with the larger of the two as these fit slim through the legs and if too small will be restricting when sitting in particular.

    Great pants!

      My favorite Kuhl pants

      I love the soft, yet rugged, material, can't keep my hands off of it. The first pants my wife ever said of "Those are nice pants, I like them." These don't have the French fly, and are cut to a leaner shape in the hips and thighs that fit me much better then the other styles. The inseam is correct in inches, but the waist size is an inch greater than the size implies. Same as with all of my Kuhl pants, so I always order a waist one size smaller and they fit perfectly. They will not shrink to fit after washing. The tightly-woven material is pretty wind resistant, which is nice outside in the winter. I love these pants and have given up wearing my jeans.
