Great jeans; logos are ostentatious

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Size

Crazy comfortable jeans, and look like they'd be excellent for climbing, but I'm returning because of all the logos. Hard to tell from the pictures, but "La Sportiva" appears in some form at least five times visibly on the outside of the pants--and the white logo on blackish/gray denim is far more free advertising than I prefer to do. It looks like--with some work--most of the logos could be peeled off the pants.

As far as utility--fit is crazy comfortable and all the piecing together of the jeans looks like it's been done for maximum reach and strength. I don't think you'd have any trouble using these while climbing if you could stay cool enough. The fabric is thick enough to be a bit warm.

Stylewise, they aren't office friendly, or even "going out on the town" friendly--a little too baggy and too many stitching lines. But if you're going purely for functionality and comfort, these are 5 stars.

If they made these in an indigo denim without the extra logos, it would be a no brainer to keep them; as it is, these are getting returned, and I'll keep searching for the perfect jeans.

Overall:
Style: 3/5 (4/5 if you scrape the logos off)
Comfort: 5/5
Price: 4/5

Normally a 34" and the Med was perfect. Slight stretch to the denim with a great all round fit.
