- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The pants are excellent for climbing and hiking. I am 6'3" 200lbs and a large fits perfect. The gusseted crotch makes climbing so comfortable! Harnesses feel comfy with these pants on, and they offer more abrasion protection than shorts do. They only go down slightly below my knee (Maybe 3 inches,) but they sure look good! They dry super fast and are super tough. One year of climbing and not one tear or stain. I would recommend them to anyone! The build in belt works wonderfully as is very convenient in that you can adjust the waist without the bulkiness of a belt.Zippers on every pocket keep my things safe when I climb or hike. Great job arcteryx!
