Patagonia Venga Rock Knickers

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Patagonia's Venga Rock Pants move and stay comfortable through drop knees and high steps, and are now more durable thanks to the addition of polyester to the original organic cotton/spandex blend. Technical patterning includes a crotch gusset and a shaped cuff thats slightly longer in the front to keep the knees covered with every high step and to avoid bunching in the back. The cuffs also have a shock cord and cord lock, and the unique, improved OppoSet adjustable waist (with low-profile belt loops) closes the separating zip fly and provides a customized fit. With two drop-in hand pockets, two rear pockets that reinforce the seat for durability, and a right-thigh patch pocket (with our interior Soft-Catch mesh envelope for securing valuables).

The Patagonia Men's Venga Rock Knicker is a stretchy knicker for rock Climbing. You know, not quite pants but not shorts either. The organic cotton, polyester and spandex blend moves when you do, leaving calves free and knees just covered. Pockets hang onto stuff but won't get in the way if you're wearing a harness and the OppoSet; adjustable waist helps secure them at just the right spot.

The wall is warm, the morning is cool, the sun is shining--days like this only come around so often, so throw on the Patagonia Venga Rock Knickers and get up there. Soft, breathable cotton is blended with enough spandex for easy movement and enough polyester to withstand a jagged rock face or two, giving you the perfect balance of comfort, performance, and durability. The darted knees and gusseted crotch are begging for bouldering problems, and the lie-flat pockets, low-profile belt loops, and easily-adjustable waist all feel smooth and comfy beneath your harness. If the below-the-knee cut isn't minimalist enough for you, a shock cord drawstring lets you tighten the cuff even further for a bulk-free fit that won't snag on the wall.
