Cody Lambertwrote a review of Patagonia RPS Rock Pant - Men's on June 19, 2018
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small
I sport climb and boulder (in and out of doors) in the central Texas area. I bought these pants hoping I’d find my go-to climbing attire for the chillier months, for eliminating a few shin scrapes, and to add a layer between my sweaty legs and the rest of the world. These pants would probably have done the trick, but after trying them on (and performing mandatory toe hook demonstrations on various door knobs and tables around my house as well as doing some quality lunges in the living room) I quickly realized a major issue for me: the saddle region (er, um, the groin area) was seriously tight and restrictive. I concluded that I just couldn’t have my junk all bound up like that on the regular (think: casually having these pants on almost compared to having my junk all scrunched up in a climbing harness on the wall...). In the end, I decided to return the pants. I’ll keep searching! P.S.: I love Patagonia gear and I hope I find something else that fits my needs a little better.
