The Haskell Short introduced not just a riding short that looked good off the bike, but a distinctive silhouette and comfortable fit, helping us look good in any situation. Bonus points that we can jump on two wheels and cross town with ease. Now we have the same thing in a stylish pant.
Rugged style, great feel, and easy drape. Definitely not a khaki chino or a “mountain pant”, but a stylish pant that pairs well with all of your Kitsbow shirts and tops, or a Kitsbow Icon.
Like the Haskell Short, there are 6 pockets, belt loops for an optional belt, and reflective hits should you find yourself out riding at night.
Fits great, they are very comfortable, I use them to teach in and ride in. It is good for commuting and hard riding.
Got these out for a quick ride last night. It was 54 degrees and the sun was setting quick, it was 46 when I got back to the car. The pants paired with a thin long sleeve tech shirt was all I had and I was perfect. I bought these for mainly riding in lower temps as my weekend rides tend to start a little early and I'll ride as long as I can year round. These worked fine with a Louis Garneau liner short and I look forward to wearing them for even yard work and weekends hanging out getting stuff done around the house!! I'm 5' 10" 205 and the 36/32 were perfect if a slight loose (as most 36's are for me).
These pants prove again why I return to Kitsbow. They compromise nothing on the bike. They look great with flip-flops and a T-shirt on Saturday afternoon. And they dress up nicely for dinner or the office. Three pants for the price of one. They're also really comfy for something built so sturdily. Although I'm marking them as true to size, which is generally true, the waist was a hair tighter than other similarly sized Kitsbow garments (and, since I ordered two pairs, it wasn't just a matter of tolerance - they both fit a little tight). If you're between waist sizes, order up. Also, the legs were a bit longer than the Drifter in the same size. Two mildly critical notes: I originally ordered "Wild Oak" and returned it. It is more green than khaki and had the peculiar quality of looking mostly fine, but not great, with anything I paired with it. Unfortunately, it completely failed to pair with my "vineyard heather" livewire tee, which is awesome, and so that color was consigned to the return pile. Finally, there is a weird little flare out at the top of the fly. It seems to be subsiding with some wear, but as of this writing still persists. In any event, I still give these five stars. Excellent pants for whatever use you want to put them to.
Too small...my size no longer available.
This pant has nice durable fabric with some stretch to it. Great for active use or out and about. I bought several pairs. I use for post MTB, van trips, hiking, and just hanging out.
