The Vire's on fire.
European-owned ABK is about to become quite popular in the states, and its best-selling pants got an update for their first journey across the big pond. The Women's Vire V2 Climbing Pants now boast a durable ripstop construction within the same cotton stretch blend that made the original Vire so comfy for summer climbs. You can expect the same mobile comfort as the original with some added durability for chimneys and offwidths.
- Performance-driven pants for climbing routes and boulders

- Q & A
Hard to clean
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
The cotton rip stop is amazing I am always bushwhacking and the pants have never snagged or ripped. And these pants fit well 5'3 115lbs I believe I got a small. However I spend most of my time climbing in the south west desert and I am finding these pants to be literally impossible to clean. I ordered the bright blue and there is no way to get the dirt off of them and now it always looks like I have a dirty rear end. Functionality, they are awesome, I would get black.
