Agreed- I use those puppies for everything. The ass is translucent now from glissading too much, at least that's what I tell people

I climb in these pants: kuhl.com/products/Crag-Kanvas....

They're really nice and durable, but move well for climbing. They also double as my dress pants. The tan fabric has faint stripes on it that makes them look a lot like cords.

Prana Zion pants are a good bet. Stretchy, comfortable, and durable. If you want something a little more technical and maybe does double duty in alpine environments, consider the REI Mistral pant. Soft-shell, but breathes great and I mean, they're kinda slim fitting. You won't fit in at any Hawthorne Heights concerts though ;)

The Marmot Cortina is pretty slim. I don't know if they make it anymore though.

I've got two pair of the Prana Nemesis Knicker (apparently knicker is a euphemism for manpri), I'm guessing they're just 3/4 length version of the Zion. I like em better than shorts in warmer weather since you still get knee and some shin coverage.

I have a pair of those too. Somebody gave them to me because they were too embarrassed to wear manpris. I've worn them a couple of times and they are comfy and functional. They do look flockin' ridiculous on me though.

Im a big fan of the Mountain Hardware Piero Pant. Ive used them on an el cap route, plus a bunch of climbing in the deserd as well as cragging. A Year old now and they still look brand new.

I actually have a pair of these. I love them but there a bit warm for the summer.

take a look at these too. I also have these and like them very very well for warmer weather climbing. They stretch a lot. Not quite as durable as the pieros...but i have used them a lot and they still look good and are holding up well with climbing. They are definitely thinner than the pieros.

I just got a pair of those and they are definitely more fitted in the waist/upper leg, but boot cut at the bottom. On sale (I guess, they are still kind of pricey even on sale) for $72 here:

I own a pair of marmot scree. Most comfortable pant I own. Very thin softshell material that stretches like hell. Seen everything from Zion summers to Teton winters. Cut slightly slimmer than Patagonia guide pants and weigh less. The kicker is an elastic waist with belt loops. That's right my friend- backcountry look but feels like sleeping pants. Doesn't get better than that..if you have to wear pants of course. That is all

One more vote for these as the sickest climbing pant of all time.

Rab "Sawtooth" pants are pretty cool....bit more of a euro cut, so longer legs and less space for a gut...

Patagonia Traverse Pants if the still make them. Only in black and they are slim fit (i'm a medium and I have a 30" waist) but they are light weight softshell fabric with a lot more stretch than my alpine guides. They're not burly but I have 2 pairs that have seen a lot of use and they're still going strong. I wish they made them in tan or grey for summer use...

Awesome slab climb right out of the water! Rogers Rock, Lake George, NY. Summer 2013.
I'm not sure that I see paying $70 for a pair of climbing pants any different than paying $200+ for a pair of Gore Tex pants or bibs to be worn climbing / mountaineering as well. ???? Both are going to get beaten and abused from the rigors of climbing!

I second the prana stretch zion pants and shorts as one of the best out there.

I know a couple guys (myself included) that wear these (Prana Bronson) to work, the gym and the crag. Gusseted crotch, lycra and good fit...I'm not big fan of the knife/tool pocket on one leg though. My favorite pants, which have a more tailored, yet tasteful fit are the Prana Saxtons that I can find anywhere any longer. I literally live in these cords...tucked in with clients, under a harness on a wall.

I think you want running pants. One of the best is made by Sporthill. I climbed in these things for years. They are almost, but not quite, tights, and have a stitched in crease that makes them look a bit classier.

sporthill.com/products2011.php...

Sporthill makes some other pants that would be candidates, and then there will be pages and pages of running pants in a Google search.
