Adaptive approach.

The Kuhl Men's Shift Amfib Shorts have go-anywhere, do-anything attitude that's fit for weekend romps and multi-week vacations alike. To achieve such a design, the designers at Kuhl outfitted with Shift with a stretch fabric that wicks moisture and dries quickly, promoting a comfortable wearing experience. Meanwhile, the DWR treatment fends off light moisture and bolsters the short's drying time. A gusseted crotch promotes a full range of motion, and the lined fly and waistband promote unencumbered comfort. Not to mention, the Shift features a chino-inspired styling, so you're able to transition from the tarmac to the coffee shop in stride.

  • A comfortable chino-style short ideal for travel
  • Stretch fabric dries quickly and wicks moisture
  • Gusseted crotch maintains full range of motion
  • Multiple pockets offer ample storage options
  • 3D cell phone pockets promote modern appeal

Kuhl Shift Amfib Short 10"

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

The snap button on the waist clicks twice when pressed closed. The snap seems secure. However, the snap pops open, when wearing a tight fitting belt, every time I bend down or sideways. I have a similar pair of these shorts in the 12" length and that snap pops open too, but not every time I bend down or sideways. When making a conscious effect to hear the two clicks on the front snap, the snap pops open.

Great lightweight shorts, but...

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I purchased 3 pairs of these shorts from the Kuhl website. They all fit the same and were the same size I have ordered other Kuhl shorts/pants. I ordered another pair from Backcountry during a sale. They were a size too small(fit). Not Backcountry's fault..I have had numerous issues with Kuhl's unpredictable sizing even between the same exact product.

a pant size 31x8 means 31" waist and 8" inseam? On KUHL Shift Amfib Short - Men's

Hey Kevin, you are correct the first number in each short will be the waist and the second number will be inseam. Kuhl in particular has quite a few different inseam lengths in their shorts. If you have any other questions feel free to reach out to me directly via the information listed above.

Good shorts, but I returned them.

The fit and look of these shorts are pretty good, however, I ended up returning them. I was comparing these shorts directly to the Kuhl Ramblr's and the Ramblr's ended up fitting and looking just a little better. I'm pretty short and wide, so that might be the reason. These shorts just seemed a little more form fitting than I was expecting. Despite all this, if these shorts were my only option, I would be happy with them, just not as happy as the alternative.
