KÜHL Renegade Pant
Model: Renegade Pant
Summer hiking in France and Spain, rainy autumn treks in Tennessee, and Friday budget reviews followed by afternoon happy hours: The Renegades are at home everywhere. “Nine months of testing and these still look brand new,” says our tester. “They never bagged out when I was traveling, the zippered pockets are great for storing my passport, and the thigh pocket is big enough for my phone.” The trim silhouette is in line with other urban pants—keeping your well-laid plans for an after-work hike under wraps—and the nylon/spandex blend stretches enough to prevent them from feeling constrictive when high-stepping through a talus field. Nitpick: The mesh-backed thigh pockets are too small for any meaningful ventilation.
