La Sportiva Arete Pant - Men's
La SportivaArete Pant - Men's

Arete in the metaphorical sense.

Sometimes the arete of the climb is a literal sharp edge that will cut your climbing rope if you fall. Most of the time, the arete of the climb is simply dealing with cold temperatures that will cut into your skin if you aren't wearing something sorta warm like the La Sportiva Men's Arete Pant. Essentially a stretchy sweatpant, the Arete Pant will keep you warm as you work out your project's most challenging cruxes.

Just put these on and I can already tell that these are a great pant. They have a cool corduroy feel with a super stretchy gusset and hip panels. I really like the lace up around the belt and the snap above the zipper is really cool. Its a slide and snap instead of just a regular snap. Also the ankle elastics are great and will keep your pants out from underneath your shoes.
