The perfect warm weather canoeing and hiking pant bar none, period, end of story. Its hard to put me in long pants, I live in shorts and self combust in long pants. But my most recent trip showed me the value of long pants with a wet overgrown trail. So glad to have had these pants. Very airy and although they let moisture through the pants don't absorb water and dry super quick.

This will sound a bit weird but I felt like I was wearing pajamas. Super light but tough.

Definitily not for the shoulder seasons but for warm weather they are unsurpassed. Yup rather pricey but worth it imo.

How's the sizing run? I'm usually a dead-on 33", and like with most outdoorsy makers, I'd have to go up or down a size with them.

My son has a couple of Kiui items, really likes them. Pretty high quality stuff. He says similar to his Sitka Gear. It's a weird name...

Sizes run true (unlike RailRiders). I am 34 and they fit perfectly. The thing to keep in mind, and what makes them so exceptional, is they stretch. You never feel "bound up" but rather they give way quite easily and why I liken them to a pair of PJ's.

I have become a fan. My first purchase was the Attack pants. They have become my favorite pants and I wear them ALOT. They have 4 way stretch, super comfy and a might bit stylish I might add.

Then I picked up a camo vest and am super happy with that as well. The Tibouron pants were a last minute purchase expressly for hiking. There were lots of prickly berry bushes over growing many parts of my trails and I feel I really nailed it with these pants. I never overheated and they will become my warm weather canoeing / portaging pant. I wet boot and what I liked about these is they don't absorb water and dry super quick.

Despite the "mesh" type fabric they held up well to the Thimbleberry bushes. Will they last many years (making them a viable investment)? Time will tell but quite honestly I have never had a pair of pants quite like these.......complete freedom of movement with lots of ventilation.

I agree on the attack pants I have the grey and brown and they are basically perfect.

MT,

What color Kuiu Tiburon pant do you wear? Major Brown, Vias Camo or Verde 2.0?

I have never worn camo for paddlin' but the Verde 2.0 may be the ticket for 2018.

I wear the brown Attck pants around town and even to church with no objections from the wife who gives me the once over to make sure her escort is appropriately dressed.

When I ordered the Tibouron they mistakenly sent me the Verde pattern and not only did they feel like I was wearing PJ's it LOOKED like I was wearing them as well. They sent me a mailing label and I got the regular old fashioned camo pattern which matches my vest. If I wear them together I go places and nobody can see me.
