Best outdoor pants I've ever owned
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought these in the spring and haven't worn any of my other climbing pants all year. These were the only pants I packed for 3 climbing trips each a week long, a couple short backpack trips and pretty much every day hike and after work climb I've done. They've held up to granite, sandstone, and even limestone. So comfortable and flattering. Don’t look dressy outdoors or lame and technical inside. Thin yet tough. Dry quick. Can be rolled up and buttoned but I destroyed the plastic button climbing an offwidth probably the same time I ripped of the back button scooting up a chimney. All that shows are a little bit of fraying at some seams and a tiny tiny whole on my thigh that hasn't enlarged in over a month. They don't shrink or stretch much and never restrict my movement climbing. The drawstring helps. I can't say enough good stuff about these pants. I'm getting another pair. I have the grey. I'm a size 8-10 5'7" 140 athletic with long long legs and got a size 8. A lot of pants are short on me, these are not. The only weird thing is the pockets are short and sometimes the inside of the pocket turns inside out and hang out above my harness legs loops. It’s sort of goofy. A tiny bit longer would fix that.
