This is my first pair of pants I've given a true five star rating. The Rampart pants are absolutely incredible, with their only down side being their price tag. They met or exceeded my expectations in every way, and because climbing is such a demanding sport, thats no easy task. I climb at least 4 days a week at my local gym, mostly bouldering and overhanging sport climbing. These pants have seen many hiking trips and outdoor excurions, with the biggest being a two week climbing trip to Squamish B.C. These pants are my favorite choice simply because they meet a climbers needs immaculately. They pack down into a smaller package than most shorts, and weigh the weight of most shorts too. Being full length pants, they offer excellent protection and abrasion resistance against unforgiving rock. They are almost completely nylon, and ultra thin and flexible. Permitting complete freedom of movement and breathability. They have a diamond gussetted croch, and are fully articulated in design. The Rampart also features six high volume pockets, with top flaps to prevent items and valubles from falling out during what ever activity who are doing. Like most Arcteryx products, they are pricey but also very high quality. I was lucky enough to find these pants half off, but I would have been more than willing to have paid the full price, these babies are well worth it. I dont know what to say other than: this is a must have pant for any serious climber. I love my Rampart Pants and I KNOW you will too.
