Why We Built The Mantle Climb Jogger

We designed the Mantle Climb Jogger with tackling boulders and jamming cracks in mind. Its Cordura construction and gusseted crotch perfectly balance abrasion-resistance and freedom of movement so that you can stem, high-step, and ascend slab without worrying about ripped pants. A shorter pant length keeps the cuffs out of your climbing shoes, and we made sure you can access all pockets while wearing a harness.

Love it overall but the pocket design

I bought this mantle climb jogger for outdoor/daily casual use, and this is my first time trying Backcountry brand pants. Had it on several times and couple washes. Overall, the design is relatively fit. The material is lightweight, quick dry, and durable (thanks to Cordura blended into the fabric). Fit wise it is great. I am a 36-waist, 200-lb and 6-feet build, size large looks pretty sleek on me. If you use it for outdoor hiking or camping, it is great. However, for daily use, the pocket system can really be improved. both front pockets can't hold any stuff (keys, small wallets or Smart Phone) and things will fall out while you sit (I had several times while driving). The only pocket can hold stuff is the zipped tiny one, but it is too small to be practical to hold stuff. Other than this issue, I am happy with this pants.

Love that these aren't super floppy and loose like a lot of hiking/activity pants. They're cut more like joggers, but have great stretch and are super lightweight for summer. The built-in belt is a nice touch. The pockets are fine, although due to the slim cut at the front, you can't really stash much there. These aren't cargo pants though - you're not buying these for storage. Only other gripe is there's no fly for easy peeing on the go - but I suppose that would have affected the weight and fit of these nearly perfect pants.

The only thing I regret about buying these joggers is reading the reviews before I purchased. So many of the reviews said these ran small, so I purchased a size up (L) and I'm kind of swimming in them. The mediums would have been perfect. They are slim fit, but they don't run small. Thankfully, despite running a little big they still look pretty good and can be tightened up in the waist. Other than that, they are very lightweight and quick drying. Wear them when it's warm on their own, or wear a base layer under them when it's cold. At least one back pocket would improve the design and things can fall out of the side pockets pretty easily when sitting down, but that's about all I'd consider changing on them.

I love these pants, and they have quickly become my go-to climbing pants. Plus they look nice as casual joggers for doing non-climbing stuff too. Pros: - Lightweight, breathable, stretchy material that is surprisingly tough. I’ve used my knees and banged my shins more than I’d like to admit, but these pants always come out in better shape than my legs. - Great integrated webbing belt that both buckles into loops and can cinch tight. - Deep front pockets and nice zippered side pocket. - Elastic cuffs and slight taper so I can really see my feet. - Love the color. Cons: - No back pocket (which isn’t bad for when I’m climbing in them, but can be annoying when just wearing them around) - They wrinkle a bit, but I love the fabric otherwise, so I wouldn’t change it. - They're not a breathable as, say, my OR Ferosi pants (which are my favorite hiking pants), but they are way more durable.

Needs a little more give in the waist

These pants are awesome except for the waist line. I am a traditional large, but these are definitely tight with littlt to no give in the waist line. I don't believe a complete sweat pants stretch is needed but in the middle between what it currently is and a sweat pant.

THE Hiking/Climbing pant 5 stars from me

For years I've been searching for form-fitting, good-looking, light pants for climbing, hiking, and getting out. I have to say, Backcountry knocked it out of the park with these. The super-light material lets your legs breathe, making them perfect for the crag or even the gym (no more trips to the gym during the winter wearing shots!) I've gone out a few times with these bad boys, but was recently impressed with an 8-hour, muddy-bank fishing day where I had to jump in the water to rescue some gear. The pants were dry in 15 minutes, and somehow didn't even smell like river after. In fact, I went out to dinner after and just left the pants on because the mud knocked off and it was dry, oh, and look good enough to eat out in.

James here from the Backcountry brand product development team. I am writing this review today to help guide your sizing decision on this new product for Spring 2021. We built this jogger to serve as your go to pant for everything from bouldering to hiking to chilling at the bar after. The Cordura construction gives you the durability you need while climbing and the spandex provides you with comfort and stretch needed for mobility. The web belt allows you to customize the waist as you see fit and the buckle serves as an anchor to keep them in place while on the move. In order to achieve maximum stretch from the waist ensure that the buckle is fully open.

I am a 33 waist, and ordered the medium. Not even close. Could not pull these on past my knees. Plus there is no fly, so there is no way to open the waist wider.

They do what most climbing pants should which is not make you think about what you're wearing while climbing them. They're nice and light so I don't feel them move when I go for a high step or weird move, and the stretch keeps the durability up and increasing the mobility in them. The zippered pocket is a nice touch so I don't have to stow smaller items I don't want to lose. And they look great! Super stoked to climb more and more in these.

I was super stoked to see these come out for men. They are a great pant and I wear them just about everywhere. For climbing, the lightweight fabric, adjustable waist and tight closure at the bottom is super rad. Makes for smooth climbing without clothes getting in the way. I also love the addition of the zippered pocket. This allows me to keep my wallet, keys and other items I really don't want to lose, safe.
