Mountain Hardwear Runout Pant
I bought these pants thinking that they would be awesome.
Fabric: "Crag Canvas"
I bought these pants thinking that they would be awesome. I must say i was a little disappointed. They aren't as flexible as a pair of Prana pants I have. They are not as durable as I would like. On a recent bouldering trip I was topping out and I slightly drug the pants across the rock and it ripped some hole near the knee area.
One plus is that they are very comfortable. If you're looking for a tough pair of climbing pants I would look elsewhere. But if you're looking for a pair of pants that are lightweight and can take some moderate climbing and still be worn around town these are the pants for you.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Climb on: low profile waist, strategic pockets and durable canvas take on the crags with ease.
Rather than it's name suggests, Mountain Hardwear's Runout Pant is not meant for merely a quick jaunt to the corner market. Burly cotton canvas can stand up any abuse you care to throw at it out on the trail or during your at-home construction projects, and with five pockets to stow things in, you're not lacking utility.
