I bought a pair of E9 climbing pants recently and really like them, which got me wondering how many other lesser-known and/or European climber clothing brands are out there (and if they're available in the US).  I'm familiar with all the commonly available climber brands in North America and am a fan of La Sportiva.  Any other brands folks would recommend?

Mammut stuff has always fit me really well

Fjallraven is a great choice for those having non-standard body composition (e.g., 28" waist 33" inseam pants).

Great products, especially for mountaineering and ski touring. But a bunch of climbing related stuff in there too.

I wish I saw more Mammut, Rab, and Mountain Equipment clothing in the states because I like most of what I have seen/own by these brands. It's around, but only a few pieces here and there.

Not clothing, but I really like an older Warthog pack made by small Chamonix company Blue Ice. It came as close to being a cross between Cold Cold World (comfort, bomber, nice features) and Arc FL packs (modern, light, but too minimalist for my tastes). They have newer stuff I haven't tried or seen and just put a full page ad in Rock and Ice mag. I still can't find anyone outside of Europe that carries their stuff. Anyone know what is going on with Blue Ice?

The most popular Euro brand is undoubtedly Decathlon.

Salewa is bringing apparel to the US this year and some of it is pretty nice. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
