Forged Denim Pant

The Men's Forged Denim Pant is most certainly sleek and stylish enough to wear around town, but Black Diamond optimized it for climbs ranging from V11 boulders to Yosemite's big walls. It's made of a special Cordura Stretch Denim fabric that's extremely durable against the rock and remarkably light and stretchy for performance-oriented comfort. Despite its stylish slim fit, the Forged Denim has a slight taper to promote freedom of movement. The button and belt loops are all designed with a lower profile to accommodate harnesses more comfortably, and the brush pocket is located next to one of the back pockets.

New Go-To

I’ve gone through several different styles and brands of pants for cold weather climbing and pebble wrestling, and these have become my new jam. Have heard of durability issues with these, but I haven’t had any issues so far.

Great jeans

I had to buy two pairs...I am usually a 31 when it is available, but this was a bit large. I went ahead and ordered a 30 and it seemed tight at first but, once worn, it is a great fit due to the stretch material.

Climbing Jeans!

My only complaint would be the waist feels high to me. Other than that, they are very comfortable and they stretch without stretching out.

Where have these been all my life?

Had these jeans for a little while now, they fit perfectly. I'm 5'10" and 180 lbs with muscular legs. Most jeans don't fit great, the pockets are too tight to hold things in, etc, etc. but the stretch and cut of these jeans look slim but I can still get on and off my bike without feeling like I'm going to rip them. My only complaint is the diamond shaped rivet on the climbing brush pocket wasn't seated tightly and it scrapes things. I removed it and have no issues and plan to wear these jeans until they're threadbare.

Great jeans. Fits large.

Awesome jeans, they feel comfortable and stretchy yet durable. Remember these are REGULAR fit! I am used to slim fit jeans and ordered my regular size, 32x30. I am 5'8" and 140 lbs and these pants fit loose in the waist and around the legs, not ideal for sporting activities as advertised. Highly recommend to try in store before you buy. I wish I could exchange them for a 31×30, but at least now I have a great winter jean for concealed carry.

The almost perfect climbing Jeans.

I love these jeans for the same reasons everyone else wrote down...however my only gripe with them is that the pockets wore down prematurely. The are ripped in several places and it seems like it’s just poor material quality for the pockets. The rest of the jeans are faded and well worn since I bring them everywhere on every climbing trip. Just bummed that I can’t keep anything in my pockets anymore.

Super Comfy and Great Looking

The most comfortable jeans I own. I wear them all of the time, travelling, outdoor activities, going out at night. They're fantastic and I will most likely be purchasing a second pair
