    Save 'em for fall.

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I picked these up for my wife, who refuses to climb in pants without cinched ankles, and they were a winner. She says the fabric is comfortable and fairly stretchy, but a bit too thick and hot for summer days. They run a touch large compared to other BD women's pants, but were longer than expected. She's 5'8" , 140lbs, with a 28in waist, and the Small fit her best. The pants fall just to her ankles and aren't highwaters like most others.

    Really wanted to like these

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Extra Small
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    I saw a friend who is 5'0" wearing these and thought they were really cute. When I saw they were on sale, I went ahead and bought myself a pair. However, on someone who is 5'8", these are far from pants. When I put them on they barely reached my ankle, and when I bent my leg, the pants rode half way up my calf and caused a lot of restriction in movement because of how short they are. Originally after trying them on inside, I figured they still looked cute as ankle pants and would give them a shot. I wore them on a short hike and scramble and was absolutely miserable. The fit was so constricting and the material clung to my legs when I got a little sweaty (it was 70 degrees F). Climbing in them was difficult due to restricted mobility because they were so short on me. They also rode down only in the back so my underwear was hanging out most of the time. I also felt like the fit was really baggy for an XS and had a lot of extra room in the butt and thighs. I see a lot of people raving about these pants and really wanted to like them, but unfortunately, I don't think they are cut out for tall people or people with long legs. Definitely returning these.

    Feel like sweatpants

      These are really comfy. They feel like wearing sweatpants. Love the cuff and ability to pull them up. They do feel like they run large though. I went with a small and they feel pretty baggy after wearing them but I think it is still the right size. I’m 5’7” 38” hips

      great pants

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: s
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 125lbs

      These pants are great to wear around town or hiking or climbing. Reinforced knees will help to prevent holes and the drawstring is nice to vary the size. I bought a small and wished I would have bought an xs.

      Comfy Climbing Pants

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: XS
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 125lbs

      I wear these pants all the time for climbing. They are very comfy, but they are also baggy in the butt and start to loosen after wearing them throughout the day. I usually wear a size small in pants but I bought an extra small in these pants and they are still big on me. I need to tie the waist so they don't fall down, I wear them every time I go climbing outside though, you don't feel restricted in these pants at all, I like that is is a jogger pant type of style.

      Comfy Climbing Pants

      Not quite

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: XS
      • Height: 5'3"
      • Weight: 110lbs

      I love the look of these pants, but they were really puffy in the butt area. Nice material and colors, but not super flattering on me.

      Comfy Climbing Pant

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'7"
      • Weight: 135lbs

      I absolutely love these pants and wish I could wear them all the time. I chose to go with a Medium for a looser, longer fit, but I would recommend sizing down if you want a tighter capri fit.
      The only reason I knocked these pants down a star is because of the signs of wear and tear. I wear these climbing with a a harness a lot, and you can definitely tell. Certain areas around the legs and hips definitely have started to fray but it looks kinda rugged so its all good.

      LOVE THESE

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: x small
      • Height: 5'2"
      • Weight: 128lbs

      I absolutely love the look and feel of these Notion pants. Originally I ordered a small and they ended up stretching a bit. I loved them so much i reordered an extra small and they fit perfectly. I wear these at the climbing gym so that extra stretch is a positive thing. I have room to move!

      Great Everyday Pants

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

      These pants are my go-to pants for pretty much everything. From a day of climbing to a night out, I will wear these things anywhere because of how comfy and versatile they are. The only reason I would not give this five stars is because the knot for the waistband can poke out from under your shirt, and the bottom stops slightly short on my longer legs. Overall, these pants are perfect for just about anything or anywhere!

      Comfortable but Not Good for Climbing

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL
      • Height: 5'9"

      I own the older style of the Black Diamond Notion pants and they're my go-to for yoga or lounging around my neighborhood. I got the newer pair because I liked the style better – these look a little less athleisure and a little more passable as normal pants. They're incredibly comfortable and they're in my regular rotation for work, however I wouldn't wear them climbing. They're stretchy enough but the material isn't as durable as the previous version. The trade off is that the material is less noisy, and they are more fitted. The previous version were a lot baggier. I do like that the last version didn't have a drawstring that awkwardly pokes out from under your shirt, but again these pass for regular pants a lot better. I don't think I'd wear these hiking or doing anything where I'm sweating a lot since they're mostly cotton. I wear a 14 and the XL fits generously.

      Great Pants

      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'5"
      • Weight: 145lbs

      These are great for climbing or just hanging out, super comfortable and the color is fun. The material is a bit thicker than the Black Diamond Notion Pant but still fairly lightweight.

      I wish they had fit me...

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: medium
      • Height: 5'4"
      • Weight: 125lbs

      I got these pants in a medium because one of my coworkers had them in medium and I thought we were similar sizes but the mediums were way to big. I would totally get another pair but their are no smalls available. They probably run true to size because I'm not normally a medium. The slate color is awesome and the material is super comfortable and seems really durable. I was really disappointed they didn't fit because I was really excited to put them to good use. The waist band is comfy and the length isn't too long.

      Pockets for Days

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'4"
      • Weight: 115lbs

      I've used these pants for work, travel, and climbing, and I love them! I got the orange and I love the super bright color for stuff like climbing, but it is a little ostentatious for wearing to work/errands. Mostly I am stoked on the POCKETS. Oh man, it is pretty rare to find women's pants with pockets big enough for a smart phone, but my phone fits in any of the FOUR pockets with room to spare! I also love the roomy nature of these pants, I feel like I can do anything! Climbing moves, yoga class, freedom of motion is a big deal for me and these pants do it all. I am not a huge fan of cotton for my adventure clothes, but these perform way better than I would expect for cotton pants.

      My top pick climbing pant

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'5"
      • Weight: 126lbs

      These are my fav all around climbing pant. They have a loose funky euro fit which is great for functionality climbing and looks great when the pants fit you well. I can wear a size M or S in these pants depends on the fit I want. Some of my smaller girlfriend (under 5.2) can have a problem fitting these, If you're petite def order the extra small, just because these are a baggy pants. Other than that I've worn these pants almost exclusively for a year now and they are still kicking and one of my favs:)

      Favorite Pants

        I love these pants, they are my favorite pants to wear climbing and if I could wear them everywhere else I probably would. They are light and breathable but they feel very durable. HIGHLY recommend.

        Breathable and Comfy

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Small
        • Height: 5'1"
        • Weight: 135lbs

        The material that these pants are made out of is extremely soft yet breathable. The high waisted stretchy waist band is perfect for climbing and hiking along with the baggy legs. Great pant for outdoor activities :)

        Technical Joggers

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: Runs large
        • Size Bought: Medium
        • Height: 5'6"
        • Weight: 140lbs

        I have a couple pairs of jogger style sweat pants and I love them but they aren't very durable . These are made in the same style but with technical fabric that makes them way more useful and versatile.

        I would suggest sizing 1 size down from your normal fit. The baggier fit may cause some unflattering bunching/folding in the crotch area.

        Balloon pants

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
        • Fit: Runs large
        • Size Bought: Small
        • Height: 5'3"
        • Weight: 115lbs

        I feel like I can't win with BD products. Their sizing is not consistent. I'm a small so I ordered the small. These pants fit more like a medium/large and they were pretty long. I'm 5'3. I was prepared for a little bit of baggieness since these are designed for climbing, but these pants drowned me out. They look really cool. Wish they had worked out.

        Best Climbing Pants Ever!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Small
        • Height: 5'4"
        • Weight: 111lbs

        I love these pants so much that I have every color! They are very light weight and let me climb with out any restrictions. They have an elastic band for the waist do you don't have to worry about your pants falling down. I am 5'4 and weigh 111 lbs and the size small fits perfect on me. I definitely recommend these pants!
