KUHL Kontra Air Pant - Men's
KUHLKontra Air Pant - Men's

Feel the breeze.

It always seems like breezes are few and far between when you're hiking in warmer weather. Thanks to Kuhl's Kuhlair vent system on the Men's Kontra Air Pant, you're able to maintain a comfortable temperature with a little help from the eleven mesh panels and lightweight fabric. Its cotton and polyester blend offers a breathable fit and feel, without having to compromise durability and protection. Meanwhile, the articulated knees and Born Free gusseted crotch (complete with ventilation) provide unimpeded mobility, so you stay comfortable no matter where your journey takes you. A full seat and thigh (along with the wide fit throughout the lower leg) makes the Kontra Air ideal for folks with larger thighs. Kuhl also reinforced the grosgrain ribbon for extended longevity, and the cell phone and wallet pocket was specifically designed so you don't sit on your bulky wallet.

Good to look at.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I wore these pants several times and washed them twice. Unfortunately, I cannot say I put them through the wringer because they never made it there. The first day I wore them, I ripped a three inch hole in the lower leg walking by a bush that was sticking out into the trail a bit. Maybe these hiking pants aren't made to handle walking by vegetation I thought. The cuffs and area around the zippers were significantly worn by the second wash and were beginning to fray. In an attempt to keep them from falling apart I stopped washing them. Once the holes started appearing in the knees and butt (2-3 weeks) I gave up and washed them again. The next time I wore them the holes became so large that I had to turn the pants into rags.

My recommended use for these pants is looking cool at rustic breweries and browsing outdoor shops. To preserve the pants do not sweat, stretch, or maneuver in them. Avoid washing at all costs and consider removing them before sitting down.

For hot desert climates you can't beat these pants for protection and vent-ability. They last surprisingly long for being of light weight fabric coupled with the numerous vents make them an ideal hot climate pants. Styled to look good for every day wear too.

These pants have vents every where and if you need more unzip the pockets and the mesh liners serve as vents. Nice fabric and comfortable to wear.
