Durable and stretchy for the mountain.
The Mountain Hardwear Men's Chockstone Midweight Active Pant is durable and stretchy enough for technical climbing and comfortable for all-day hikes. The Chockstone Midweight Doubleweave softshell fabric blends nylon for abrasion-resistance with elastane to offer unimpeded mobility; the DWR coating offers a touch of extra protection in inclement mountain weather. The Chockstone's active fit includes a fully gusseted inseam and articulated knees for freedom of movement on the rock wall. The waist features a soft Micro-Chamois lining for comfort, and an integrated belt for a snug, bulk-free fit.

Hiking in Utah
Great pants for cold (30's) and 65 by the time we were done
Best pants ever
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I picked up a pair of these kind of on a whim trying to find the perfect gym climbing pants, and I think I found them. These may be the most comfortable pants I have ever worn, let alone for climbing. The 'active' fit means they're going to hug you pretty close, but do not let that dissuade you. The high elastane content means that these will move with you without ever impeding your movement. I was incredibly impressed with how stretchy they were. The lightness of the fabric makes it feel like I'm almost climbing naked, which is great for those days when the gym is crowded and stuffy. And if all that weren't enough, these pants look fantastic. You could easy wear these anywhere casual. I also really enjoy the built in belt, as the last thing I want is another buckle between me and my harness.
