Kuhl Mutiny River Shorts Review – Fantastic Quick Drying Board Shorts

 

The Kuhl Mutiny River shorts are excellent for activities on or in water. I used them for rafting, SUP, swimming and playing in creeks and lakes here in Colorado.

Looking for a board short that works just as well on land as it does on water? Then check out the Kuhl Mutiny River shorts.  I had been using the previous version of the Kuhl swim trunks, and really liked them. However, they did not have the functionality that these Mutiny River shorts do.

The Mutiny River shorts are not just water shorts, they actually have useable pockets too.  The rear Velcro’s pocket is great for your wallet, and the two zippered side pockets are perfect for a cell phone and shades or dog poop bags.

The hand pockets are pretty small, as I could barely get my hands in them.  But, they are mech backed and they drain quickly.  The material is a tough, 142 GSM non-stretch fabric. There are stretchy side panels that provide some added range of motion.  I kind of wish they had more stretch, as most Kuhl gear does.  However, this did not stop me from using (and enjoying) the shorts on many, many adventures.

The Mutiny River’s 3D textured fabric has more surface area, which allows the shorts to dry faster than other materials.  I can attest to this actually working after many days of use.  Which really comes in handy when you are in and out of the water all day.

Bottom line – The Kuhl Mutiny River shorts are great for on water adventures, provide UPF 50 sun protection and have useful pockets.  More so than other board shorts or swimming trunks. If you are looking for more of a hiking short, check out our review on the Kuhl Renegade shorts.
