Perfect climbing shorts

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

I've been looking for a pair of shorts for climbing that won't gape or ride up and will keep me covered while I climb... without being restrictive and without being super long. It's been pretty difficult to find, but these fit the bill for me! They're comfortable, they feel durable and they're easy to move in. Definitely recommend!

Snug but Stretches

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

Overall phenomenal shorts. Lots of flexibility and the pockets are spacious; big thing for me is that they feel great in the muggy summer.

I do olympic lifting and have a bit thick thighs (5'10, 160lbs) and find that when fresh from the wash they are a bit snug on my thighs and will ride up. After a few wears they loosen up and stay put fairly well.

I've been using them consistently for about a month now and seeing small signs of wear where my legs rub together; no actual issues but just something I'm keeping my eyes on. Love them, but still need time to figure out their durability.

Not made for muscular thighs

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: L

I am 6'1" 170lbs and have muscular legs, these were tight around the legs and loose in the waist (size L, my waist is a 29"). I was super excited for them but they are not for women with muscles unfortunatley.

Climbing Shorts for the Win

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

I am always so jealous of guys who get to climb in shorts because women's shorts are NOT compatible with a harness. UNTIL NOW! These bad boys are the perfect length and style for climbing in. If you are a lady crusher, I highly recommend these. Fit is really nice and flexy with a nice durable fabric. Maybe just stay away from off-widths in shorts ;) .

How to Measure:
For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
Measure from the center of your back to your wrist with arms held out.
Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
