    Modernist Rock Pant

    You can get your morning climbs in before work when you're wearing the Black Diamond Men's Modernist Rock Pant. With a clean and casual style, the Modernists provide four-way stretch and a gusseted construction so you can climb without these pants holding you back. A DWR finish sheds light moisture, raindrops, and even a little dirt so you can look clean for work—with the exception of your chalky fingers and sweat-crisped hairline.

    • Climbing pants that pull double duty between the crag and office
    • Four-way stretch fabric with DWR finish for water-resistance
    • Gusseted construction assures freedom of movement
    • Item #BLD00XC

    Great Fit Great Look

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 28
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    The first thing I did when I slipped on a pair of these was head to the climbing gym. These pants excelled in comfort and stretch, I felt no restrictions in my movement. I've been very impresssed with Black Diamonds fit on their clothing, I'm a skinnier person and these pants have a great slim (possibly considered skinny) fit. I feel like I could take these pants out on a night in the town as a semi-dress pant, then take them climbing the next day.

    Good quality

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

    Pant fit was accurate for me. The material is stretchy but not itchy. I've taken them bouldering once and am happy with them so far. They feel durable.

    Fantastic pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    lightweight slim fit pants that still move with you. Don't expect to wear them instead of nicer pants but good for a casual social event or major activity. I'm a skinnier guy so it's hard to find a pant that is this fitted.

    Great slim fit lightweight pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    I'm slender (5'9" 145lbs) so it's been tough to find something that looks like it fits but still functional. These pants accomplish both goals. Slim fit but still very easy to move around with.

    Best. Pants. Ever.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    I have worn a pair of these (have them in blue, black, and gray) almost every day for the last year. I wear them to work (casual office environment), to the bar, driving cross-country, climbing, hiking, skydiving, and everything in between. I've worn them on multi-pitch climbs through off widths, camping for several days at a time, in the rain, in the snow, and even in the desert heat. They really are the most versatile pants I've ever owned.

    I'm a pretty consistent size 32 in most pants and these fit me perfectly. They a little slim through the legs, but I like them that way. My thigh measures 21 inches around and I can pinch about an inch of extra fabric. There is a little taper towards the ankles so they stay pretty slim through the lower leg. I measured mine (yup, wearing them now) at 16 inches around at the ankle.

    The 4-way stretch fabric stretches really well in any body position and the gusseted crotch (not sure material type but it is more stretchy) makes them more flexible than you are.

    The material is unlined and fairly thin but they have been surprisingly durable. No lining means I can wear them in the desert and not burn up, but I can also wear them in the winter with a base layer and be comfortable. Water and wind resistance is moderate as expected w/ soft shell fabric.

    Downsides:
    The only downsides I can think of is that my gray pants do pill a little bit (weird for soft shell), but my blue ones have not (black ones are an older model and they used different soft shell material back then). I have worn my gray ones at least twice as much as the others, so maybe that's why?

    I wear them often for climbing and white chalk and dark colors don't go well together. For the most part you can brush the chalk off, but it does take a little work. Other things like dirt also show fairly well on them, but can usually be brushed off or wiped off with a damp cloth which is super convenient if you're on the go or can't wash them for a day or three. The dark colors are nice for wearing them at the office or on the town, but not quite as good in most of my adventure settings. A couple lighter color options would be awesome.

    Overall these pants are great and I'll probably buy a couple more pairs in case BD decides to stop making them.

    My Favorite Pants. Ever.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: X-Small
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    These pants are amazing in every conceivable way. I am a relatively slender rock climber, and I climb hard. Not only do these pants fit my slender waist and build perfectly, but they're probably more comfortable than my sleep flannels. They stretch easily, but are tough enough to sustain long climbs. If BackCountry had my size (28) again I would literally buy every pair they have in stock.

    Cruise slacks!

      We went on an alaska cruise and I used these to wear to dinner a couple of times but they also were great for hiking. There is no lining to them so they don't get too hot. I think the cut is like a comfortable pair of jeans, they can also take a belt so they look nicer if you need them to.

      Multi Day Pant

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 34
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 185lbs

      Solid pant. Good fit and great stretch. Definitely have a more sporty look to them which doesn't make them best for around town but they are totally passable in most situations.

      When going on overnights in the mountains these pants really shine. They shed dirt, water, and whatever else you get on them well, but are also comfortable. They don't have that scratchy or crinkle feel that other "outdoor" nylon pants have which is a real plus. Can withstand a little ran and dry pretty quick.
