One of the few pieces in their line up that have held up well for me. Good late season pant

I find them to be a lightweight and durable option for early season. They breathe well and dry quickly. I've been happy with them for the last 2 seasons.

Two things I'll point out:
1. I wear a 34x32 in nearly all pants. I had to size up to a 36x32. I believe they've since revised these, but I have no experience with the new version if there is one.
2. They're a tad noisy at first. Think swish, swish while walking. Enough to where my brother called me out on it before I washed them a couple of times. Problem solved.

Kuiu Attacks are awesome pants for mid to late season.

FYI and IME, Pant sizing has been a known issue at First Lite for many years. Pants tend to run wide in the waist relative to length. I found that from personal experience and from many on-line reviews and articles.  The guys who ran/run First Lite are fit, athletic guys, so it seemed odd to me that the pants had that issue. My experience is limited to the Corrugate pants, but what I was reading applied to their pants in general.
