Does anyone have a good recommendation for a solid climb pant? I know its not the San Juan burritos I'm so fond of, however, it never fails that within 3 or 4 months of average wear and tear, the seat of my pants rip or wear through. Is there a maker who puts focus on wear points (ie knees and seat) yet the pants stretch and moves well enough to make high stepping a breeze? I like Kuhl's hybrid pant but I have yet to see them make a pant that is light yet durable in the knees and seat.

Aside from the original painter's pants as still my favorite climbing pants of all time (had the patch them all the time), I really like some Black Diamond climbing pants I bought a few years ago and are still going strong.

Being tall I have issues with high stepping, wear is universal but I buy heavy weight white karate pants then go to a tailor shop (dry cleaner?) and have elastic sewn into the cuffs. Sounds involved and a bit weird but pretty cheap, great movement, and they last. No pockets though...

For me, the only pant that holds up, even when purchased second hand are Dickies or Carharts.

Kuhls have been pretty good for me. Pricey, but the butt hasn't blown out from farts, or assdragging so far.

Could be I just have good assdragging skillz?

No pee stains there.

Ever seen Bridwell in lycra? The time I did was in Hidden Valley CG, he had a posse of Palm Springs high school girls up for a day of climbing. It was, shall we say, quite a sight.

I've got a pair of Roscoe Outdoor pants that I like - they have double fabric on the thigh/knee and seat area. Solid pants.

Prana Stretch Zion for everyday use. A friend with Arc'teryx Psiphon SL pants swears by them. Looks to be super durable.

NOT PAINTER'S PANTS. . . DAMNIT, JIM!

Theeeee absolute best white pants were NAVY BELL BOTTOMS.

50 cents a pair at QuarterMasterSupply in Long Beach.

My legs are longer than the New Jersey Turnpike. . .
my Navy pants were always FLOODS. . .
so I rolled 'em up. . . and rolled with it!

YeahBaby!

Gotta have ROOM in those white pants.
(She says as she reluctantly admits to having thunder
thighs and Congo calves!)

I remember sittin' in rescue one night playin' not so fine
handcrafted geetars. . . with the likes of TheWarbler,
Chappy, Bridwell (he has a magnificent voice) and prolly
Gramicci, BachStar, RK, and Dale. . . and undoubtedly TheWonderBrawn. . .
makin' up climbing words to songs.

This one came out and it still cracks me up!

If you climb with me
I will understand
Cause that is something
everybody
everywhere
does in the SAAAAMMMMME

WHITE PANTS!

:-)

For you millennials out there, who don't get it. . .
