Black Diamond BDVs
Fantastic pants. Made of Schoeller Dynamic fabric.
Fabric: Schoeller Dynamic
Price Paid: $120
Fantastic pants. Made of Schoeller Dynamic fabric. Nice simple design. No frills. On me they had a nice loose fit in the seat/thighs (not too baggy...) but they taper down pretty tight at the ankles. The web belt works great to keep them up but is thin enough that it doesn't interfere with climbing harnesses or pack belts. Great design. The fabric stretches, it sheds light rain, it breathes. It's also pretty darn tough. The fabric is not great for colder weather. It's really lightweight. On cold days in the mountains, they offer very little in the way of insulation and the wind comes through a bit. If you're looking for full-on winter pants, look for something made of Schoeller Dryskin Extreme.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Our famous BDVs are even better this year with a webbed waistbelt that can be cinched down for a perfect fit. Made of stretchy Schoeller Dynamic fabric that moves with your body as you climb, these pants can endure the abuse of desert towers, Yosemite walls and gnarly approaches. And because they're hightly water resistant, the BDVs are also ideal for spring backcountry tours.
