I dig the look, feel, and fit of these pants, but they are EXTREMELY easy to tear. My first time going out with them they developed two rips. I wasn't even climbing! I definitely would not use these for climbing, or really anything other than lounging around the house. I would return them if I could, bummer. I am a huge fan of Prana products usually but these disappointed.
Prana is my favorite outdoor clothing manufacturer and I have and love tons of their stuff... that said, I'm torn on these pants. These are truly the most comfortable pair of pants I have *ever* owned. They are so nice its ridiculous. I love the feel and the look. The problem is the durability. These pants get threadbare extremely quickly at the knees and butt (within 6 months of once or twice a week normal wear). The fabric wears faster than any material i've ever worn. The pair I've owned for a year is essentiallly transparent at both knees and the butt. I love these pants, but to have to pay 70 dollars to replace them each time is too much to ask.
This is my go-to outerlayer for hiking/camping/climbing in the southwest US. This jacket plus one or two under layers is enough to get me through the most extreme stuff the desert would ever throw at me. The jacket is comfy, has just the right amount of insulation for me (you may want a heavier jacket if you live in a colder climate... this one is definitely lighter than your average insulated winter jacket). I love the styling and the pocket placement. Its water repellant enough to shrug off light rains but it will get saturated, like most DWR coated fabrics will, in a deluge. Best of all, the fabric is very durable and has survived many an accidental fall/slide down rock faces.
These are my favorite pair of pants, ever. They are the perfect thing for what I love to do most, hiking/camping/climbing in the deserts of the southwest US. The length is just long enough to protect the knees well, but short enough to not trap heat like long pants would. I haven't worn a normal-length pair of shorts into the backcountry once since getting these. The fabric is great... its super durable, lightweight, quiet, slightly stretchy, and adequately water resistant.
