Roots Pant

Giving your arms the proper credit, you won't get too far into your climb without the right footholds, and you won't be able to nail those footholds in just any old pair of pants. The La Sportiva Roots Pants give you the mobility you need to get your feet set on the most difficult moves, and the durability you need to not shy away from rugged rock walls and boulders. They're made with a durable organic cotton blend that won't rip or tear at the first sign of real rock, and also boast a roomy fit and light stretch to give you easier movement when you're trying to get those feet around. A gusseted crotch aids in further mobility while also preventing blowouts, and a stretchy elastic waistband ensures that you've always got the most comfortable fit possible.

Got these for warm season hiking and approach/ bouldering, and camp lounging. Haven't tested yet, as I just got them. But putting them on out of the package, they're soft and comfy, lightweight and just stretchy enough. Based on some sizing research, I got the smalI even though I'm 6'-0" 160 lbs and usually wear 32W/32L or 32/34 pants. Legs are perfect length, a tad skinny, elastic waist is snug but not too tight. I would maybe try a medium next time, but I think I'm between sizes.

Extremely Comfortable

I’ve had these pants for a few months now and love them. They are extremely comfortable however they aren’t quite as durable as I had hoped. I’m not sure how but I’ve acquired a small hold in both the left knee and the crotch of the pants. Nothing a little sewing can’t fix

Like scrubs

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
6' 2"

I bought the XL, and the initial fit was great, but they shrank after a wash. They still fit and work well for climbing. They?re comfortable but pricey, even on sale, for what they are. That being said, I?d buy another pair at this discounted price. I?d go a size up if you?re worried about shrinking, or just don?t dry them. I?m 6?2, so the length is good on me, but it may be baggy if you?re shorter. I also tend to have to pull them up before bouldering attempts, as they start to ride down.

Fantastic climb and chill pants

Awesome fit (5 10 160 pounds medium pants), slightly long but this is useful for climbing. Light weight fabric with a light stretch. Comfortable waist band and deep pockets. Stylist enough to be cool but conservative enough to wear anyplace.

Great Spring/ Fall Climbing Pant

I have been able use theses pants for about the last 6 months and man they're comfy! The pants are made up of a stretch cotton and have a gusseted crotch so moment and flexibility are not hindered one bit. Pockets are big and roomy. The elastic waist band is awesome and blurs the lines between sweatpants that I ninja up stone in or a pair of casual dress pants that I can wear into work on Fridays. All while looking presentable. I have a size 34" waist and wear a large.
