There’s so much to like about the Kuhl FreeFlex Roll-up Pants. But we’ll start with the six pockets: two hand, two back, two thigh. They’re fully functional, sufficiently deep, and good for storing frequently accessed items while hiking. Of note, the cargo pockets are too small to hold a phone. Also of note, the hand pockets are scoop style, meaning they are more secure but a bit harder to reach into.

Next, we’ll call out the fabric, which is soft and pleasant to the touch, while also being stretchy and durable. It’s everything you need it to be and nothing you don’t. Kuhl claims it is stretch without spandex, meaning that they don’t sag or bag and recover perfectly after each movement.

Finally, the roll up capri feature. This is a snap closure system that secure the pant leg after you roll it up to about mid calf. While it is the namesake feature of the pants and not unwelcome, we’ve never had much trouble rolling up and cuffing any old pair of pants, so this isn’t a huge bonus.

Averaging 4.7/5 stars among hundreds of user reviews, almost everyone who tries Kuhl FreeFlex Roll-Up Pants has good things to say.


This is an excellent pair of pants. They’re comfortable, functional, flattering, and have a full set of pockets. We recommend them highly.
