Ze best stretchy pants in ze world!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

This is my second pair of levitation pants, just in a different color. I love the fit, fabric and style. Great as a base layer and for yoga/running! My last pair made it through 16 canyons and more. I wore them multiple times a week over the last year and they finally started to show wear. I'm really happy with how they have lasted considering what I have put them through!

Casual wear only

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

Super disappointed - these pants fit well, are comfortable, and legs are plenty long for me. However, after one session at the climbing gym the seams on the inner legs were pilling like mad. After the second session, the fabric was doing it as well. This would be okay if I had paid $20 for a non-performance brand, but not for pricy climbing-specific pants from an outdoor manufacturer.

New Go-to Legging

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I finally replaced my 8-year old running/hiking/climbing/romping leggings with these and I am stoked!

They wick really well and have a great fit overall--I'm 5'6" 140# (usually a 6-8 in jeans) and the medium fits like a glove!

These leggings are on the thinner side, so best for moderate temps or high output (rather than as an insulating legging).

Great Color

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: medium

I purchased the maroon color and I love it. They're a little brighter than the photo but still a rich red. My only complaint is that they'll a little see through when you bend over but not bad enough to stop me from wearing them climbing.

fav stretch leggings/ layering piece

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

The waist and fit of these leggings are just great. The waist fits high enough but it's too much material so it still has a flattering look. I'm usually a size 4/6 26/28 waist in most pants or jeans and I use a size small in the this pant. The material is pretty thick so I don't feel so "showy" if I'm just climbing in the leggings. But not too thick so I can easily use them as a layering piece. I've used these mostly indoors, but the few times I've used them outside they done well not getting shredding on rocks and outdoor obstacle:)

Nice ahtletic pants

Love the fit and the fabric of these pants - super soft and flattering. My only issue with them is that they start to become sheer in the seat when you are in a squat or chair position. If you wear full coverage undies then you should be good to go. When Im standing in mountain they are still opaque.

Favorite

    These tights have instantly became my favorite, the fabric is soft but durable. Fit is true to size and I really like the ribbed waist band. I've been running and climbing in these pants and love the movement they allow.

    Stretchy Pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Small

    These pants do run small. I'm a size 2/4 in most things and I ordered the size small. These were snug but I like it that way! I wore these canyoneering (not their intended purpose) and the fabric held up well. I loved the high waist (no flashing butt crack). Expect piling to happen at the seams on the butt from sitting, etc. I love the color. Looks cool in photos!!

    Great Pants

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I am really impressed with these. They fit and look great. The ribbed waist band is really comfortable allows for a lot of movement. I have worn these out running, hiking, morning stretching, and climbing. They are a medium weight so perfect for fall and spring activities. If you are a fan of leggings or comfy outdoor clothing for chicks I would highly recommend these. They even have a tiny pocket.

    Comfortable, Flattering, NOT DURABLE

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I ordered these, tried them on, and really liked them. I normally don't like leggings—don't like how they fit or look. I really liked these—they looked good and were super comfy. Unfortunately, they didn't hold up to climbing. I took them out for a few hours at the gym, and by the end they were pilling at the seams. I might expect that from standard leggings, but not from ones Black Diamond is marketing as climbing ones. Disappointed :(

    good for tall legs

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I am tall and have issues with tights hitting me in the wrong place on my calf. These tights were perfect for me. They are super stretchy, but no show through (i did the bend over test). I have been climbing in them, yoga, running, I even wore them as a base layer for skiing and the material is comfortable and surprisingly durable. Best tights I've ever worn!
