But when I do, it’s because I cannot contain the awesome. These pants were a game changer! I’m a 5’4” 135lb climber, with some thickness about me, and I had to order xsmalls. I originally got smalls, but after half a day of wear, they stretched out and I had to keep pulling them up. I’m usually a small in leggings and haven’t seen xsmall since grade school, but would definitely rec sizing down. I wear these to work all the time and get tons of compliments because they go with anything! I would warn that the smaller you go, the shorter they get. These fit like ankle jeans with sneakers, so if you are a fan of longer pants, these aren’t the way to go. I have now climbed in them several times, and they truly hold up. I’ve done some crazy stretches and no tears or splits have happened. I have these and the denim pair and cannot wait to order a few more colors. Much recommend. I will leave this with a request to consider adding a drawstring elastic band in the top of the pants. I have leggings with elastic you can tie off, and it would make a world of difference holding them up for long term climbs. Hope this helps!
LOVE these jeans! I am 5'5 130lbs and ordered the small and they fit like a glove. They are a bit on the short size but it's a cool style. I have used them for yoga and climbing and they are super stretchy and easy to move in. Not to mention they look badass. The high waist is great and I never feel like I have to worry about exposing my generous butt. I haven't worn them on outdoor routes yet but they seem much more durable than my normal go-to leggings. Really glad I bought them and will probably get more in the future.
These are the best climbing jeans! They're super comfortable yet feel pretty rugged. I love the black and the denim. I definitely recommend giving these a try!
Perfect climbing pants. Definitely nice to not have to worry about the pants being see through when I'm climbing. Love the high waisted design and they feel really durable! Will be ordering a pair in red next!
Ordered a M/L - 5'2" 155 lbs - perfect fit. They're nice and stretchy.
