Walking through Echo Cove looking for a good climb...
Can anyone recommend fitted/athletic fit climbing pants? Preferable some that stretch.

Thanks

My buddy Andy and I making the best of the day aft...
Last year I bought a pair of Prana stretch zion pants. I wore them and loved them. Now I have 3 pairs of stretch zion pants. I'm sure there are plenty of other good pants out there, but these are tough to beat for a climbing pant.

+1 for the Prana Zions. I don't actually have the pants yet but I have 2 pairs of the shorts and love them. Super tough and stretchy. I'll probably pick up the pants, soon. Ian Stewart

All of these suggestions seem really good but can anyone recommend a tighter fitting pant? Something more like a straight leg that fits more like fitted pair of jeans. Tyler Smith

Ummm... "Can anyone recommend a tighter fitting pant"? Is this a real conversation?

Any logger will tell you, it's not how tight the pants are, it's how high you hitch up your suspenders.

It's just personal preference. I want pants I can wear to work and then go straight to the gym. I prefer a "slim" fitting pant. All my jeans are considered "fitted" meaning there slightly tighter than your standard jean and this is what Im looking for. So yes, this is a serious conversation. :)

You should just rock the Lycra, that's where this is headed.*

I got some biking tights for cold weather (kind of stretchy fleece) from a scratch and dent sale (Novara brand) they probably have some on the REI outlet for cheap. I paid maybe ten bucks. For my uses thrift stores and scratch and dent sales are the only way to get climbing garb of the non-bad weather variety...It just gets too beat up to spend money on. JGHarrison

You may want to check out brands that are aimed at the skateboarder market. I've seen a lot of 'skinny jeans' that are made with lycra. DC, Analog, and Fourstar are a few names that come to mind. I'm not sure if they'd work for climbing but they are more flexible than regular denim.

Yea I was thinking about that. I used to work at a skate/snow shop so that was going to be my next move.

well if it's skinny jeans you want why didn't you say so... Climbing magazine did a review on pants a few editions ago. Thunderbolt Softshell skinny Jeans...just $188 and your nuts and your wallet will be crushed.
+1 for normal fit jeans with lycra

Since you are wanting the slimmer fit, check out the Stoic Overhang pant. I have the shorts and am a big fan of them so far. If you can find them on sale definitely give them a shot! Matt..C

David said = people that pay $70 for climbing pants that they are going to beat the crap out of make me lol.

You get what you pay for David. If you climb often in the backcountry, a light synthetic - breathable soft-shell or DRW treated nylon pant sure beats the hell out of a pair of cotton work pants.

The best all around pant that I can wear all year in all conditions all the time is a pair of Patagonia Simple Guide Pants. I've gotten two years out of single pair climbing ice/mixed, ski-touring, frequent cragging, and frequent alpine rock missions.

I'm a total metrosexual though...

Friend of mine gave me a pair of Blur pants. Not sure what model but so far I love them. A little stretchy and they seem to be durable. Check them out. If I like them enough I might buy a pair so you know who can LOL. 1Eric Rhicard

Anyone ever try these? They seem somewhat fitted and there on sale.
