While I'll always like the older style of this pant more, the paramount is a great climbing and hiking pant. The durable material with DWR sheds water incredibly well for at least of year of constant use. The paramount is also very light and drys extremely fast. I'm 6'5 and the long option is just long enough for wear with hiking boots and the optimal length to climb with climbing shoes on.
