These are my new climbing pants. The range of motion is unrestricted, perfected for climbing. The material breaths well and has a slight stretch to it.
These have become my new favorite pair of pants. I love the stretch and breathability. I've been on a few hikes with them and they really move with you. They also seem to dry really quickly. They say you know your gear is good when you don't notice it, meaning it just works like you expect it to and you don't notice things that bother you or hold you back. That's how these pants are for me when hiking, I don't notice them there at all and they perform as I would hope. My only complaint is I wish they would have made the two seat pant pockets with zippers rather than velcro. Because of how much these pants stretch, you really have to pull on them to get the velcro to release. After about 6 uses the velcro has started to come unsewn from taking my wallet out of my back pocket. Since the material stretches so much you can't see the needle holes so I think I'm just going to unpick the rest of the velcro and leave it open like a pair of jean pants. Other than that these are fantastic pants. I'll be buying another pair in the slate color soon. On a side note, tahoe mountain sports shipped them really quickly. I was starting to get nervous and almost contacted them since I hadn't seen a shipping notice but by the third day after shipment they were at my door so I'm a happy camper.
