Who knew Karl was so sneaky?
Sneak up on other hikers, and the Fjallraven Men's Karl Pant's G-1000 Silent fabric will help you spook them good. Apart from being Silent, G-1000's durable blend of breathable cotton and quick-drying polyester is totally worthy of any outdoors mission. Articulated knees help you hike the steep stuff, and a low rise accommodates climbing harnesses and backpack straps. Fjallraven added two pockets specifically designed for tools and maps, as well as a plethora of pockets for your hands, wallet, and more.
Perhaps the most beautiful part of any Fjallraven apparel is the G-1000 waxed coating. Each pair of pants comes with a wax impregnation for reliable resistance against abrasion and water. You can re-wax the fabric once the original wax wears off, and you can thicken the wax for winter or thin it out for summer, resulting in a versatile and traditional style for year-round outdoors adventures.

fjall raven pants
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: 36
The pants looked very nice. However they are sized smaller that US sizes. I normally wear a 36 but these lacked at least 2 inches or so from closing.
Only got to wear these a handful of times. They are a little long in the legs but I was planning on that and they fit over boots well whether hiking or climbing.
How would these work for climbing?
These would work fine for climbing. Dependent on how they fit your shape they should give you the range of motion you need. One thing to keep in mind if traditional or sport climbing these pants fit a bit lower on the waist so having on a harness it might site a bit higher than ideal. Email headed your way. Hit me up directly with questions.
Do these have the long "raw" length inseam that some of the other Fjallraven pant styles have?
They sure do, Robert. They 're cut a little longer purposefully.
