Great pants for climbing. They're light weight, so they're great for hot days or gym days. A good bit of stretch keeps them from constricting movement at all. The zippered thigh pocket is great for keeping a Clif bar or or folded topo, a phone would also fit, and can be accessed with a harness on. I've had no issues with durability and have no doubt these will be holding up for a long time. Ordered a couple more pairs because I got tired of climbing in anything else. The drawcord is actually a really nice feature, preventing you from needing a bulky belt. I went with the 30" inseam, which is great for keeping them away from my ankles, but the 32" inseam would probably be better for a casual look.

Great poles, I don't think I'll ever use anything else. I guess there are lighter poles available, but personally I abuse my gear pretty well, and these have shrugged off everything I've thrown at them. You know they won't let you down. I was apprehensive about the fixed length at first, but love it now. You don't have to fiddle with clips and clasps, and you know that each side will be perfectly even all the time, every time. If you are a "set it and forget it" type of person, you want these. It also means that these can be extended and collapsed on the go, without even having to take your eyes off the trail. The foam grip stays comfy after hours of use, and the contour makes them great for choking up when going uphill, and there is a small amount of hook that lets you palm the top but still grab it well when descending. The balance is great, and if these are "too heavy" then you really have far more pressing matters than the weight of your poles.

The only downside I have found is that if your shelter relies upon the use of poles that must be different lengths, these will not work well. They are not stable unless locked in at their fixed length.
