    Almost as important as an actual prusik.

    The Outdoor Research Men's Prusik Softshell Pant handles trad climbs, offwidths, and anything in the alpine with stretchy protection. Outdoor Research blended Cordura into this stretchy and breathable fabric for extreme durability. Its midweight fabric feels best on shoulder season climbs and summers in the alpine.

    Outdoor Research designed this pant with a trim fit for a lighter weight, and the articulated knees ensure full mobility. The brushed tricot-lined waistband wicks moisture, dries quickly, and feels soft against your back. The Prusik also features inner drawcords at each ankle to stay off your climbing shoes, and grommets let you attach instep laces for extra security. The gripper elastics stay secure over mountaineering boots too.

    Could not be better!

      I ordered these pants for snowshoeing, winter hikes, maybe the occasional alpine snowfield/glacier work (wish I got out west more often than I do). These pants are incredible. Perfect blend of breathable, water & wind resistant, warm enough, and super soft and comfy. Pockets are exactly where I'd want them and zippers have given me no issues. The fit is a little roomy with some stretch, which I like for layering over a base layer, etc. I'll definitely buy them again. OR has really nailed it with these.

      Odd sizing, nice pants

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 32

      Wanted a lighter weight and trim fitting soft shell pant for ice climbing and winter hiking. I wear a 32/31 waist x 30 inseam in most pants and jeans. I bought a size 32, figuring they'd fit better with a base layer underneath. I was wrong. My
      Best guess is the 32's are a 34x33 and they were quite baggy. I have a mesomorph body type it's usually hard to find pants that both fit my waist without being too tight in the thighs. Not so with these.

      Anyways, bad fit otherwise they'd have been great. I think a 30 short may have worked, but they don't carry short-tall. An adjustable waist would also be a big improvement.

      Prusik Pants

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 34

      These are great pants, just about the right weight for most fall spring stuff. Wore them every day hiking and climbing for two weeks, and they don't show any sings of wear. Pockets are right for harness, I have a difference of opinion with most pants makers on how they cut their pockets ( I would like to open the side pockets without stuff falling out, and I like to be able to warm my hands) but all in all these are well made well thought out pants. However! I dnot think these are anywhere near regular fit I am a standard 34 inch waist, and that's what I bought, reinforced by the fact that I also have a pair of Cirque pants, a large that fits just fine, but these things are not a trim fit, I am making them work with a pair of suspenders, but they are a little large/long all around. Thinking about trying the next size smaller (32 I think) . If you can try them on and find the size that fits these are great pants.

      Great Softshell Pants

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      I was looking for a pair of softshell pants that weren't really thin nor a burley thickness. The Prusik is the perfect weight somewhere in between to offer warmth but not so thin you think you will rip through them. The Ferrosi seemed too thin. Love these for climbing on cooler days/conditions. Fits pretty true to size although I wish the 32 waist was a tad smaller.

      Great softshell pants

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size

      So I'm very picky about fit and the fit on these is great. True to size and obviously have great stretch. Pants seem pretty burly, but I have yet to get out in them. Product is well made and I couldn't find a defect. Only drawback I can think of is the pant leg bottoms have a drawstring that might be uncomfortable if tucked into a boot. Can't wait to use these out in the wilderness for years.

      Hey Airwalker, thank you for taking the time to write! I am psyched for these pants in our lineup for sure. That drawstring actually has a loop up in the leg of the pant that it hooks onto, so you don't have to stick it in your boot! Nice job, OR!!

      OR Rep

      I just used these on a two week ice climbing trip through Ouray and Hyalite. When I didn't have on ice boots and separate gators, I used this built in strap to cinch up the bottoms and hold the leg down to my hiking boots. I used the built in gator on multiple occasions up to knee deep powder and waterproof hiking boots. The cinch strap worked really well.

      Great mountaineering and alpine pant

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 32

      I've used these pants about 20 days so far. I like them a lot because they are the right weight for most activities for me. To often I over heat with soft-shell pants that are thick. These pants are thinner, but still keep me warm and cut the wind from the outside. I've used them alpine mountaineering, rock climbing on cold days, and spring ski tours.

      I really like the pocket location as my topo or a snack can fit in that pocket and get to it easily. The drawstring inside the cuff is also super nice so I can keep the snow out of my boots.

      Overall pretty stoked with these pants and impressed with how much they have held up.
