Sierra Climb Jean

Don't stop climbing just because it gets a little cold out, throw on the Sierra Climb Jean and keep your legs warm and protected while you continue to work your project. The North Face designed these jeans with a gusseted crotch, so you can high step and knee bar without feeling restricted. The stretch denim also adds an element to increase your range of motion so you're not just moving comfortably on the wall, but also on the hike out after another fun day at the crag.

  • Jeans to keep your legs protected while sending your project
  • Stretchy cotton blend is breathable and durable
  • Crotch gusset allows for unrestricted range of motion on the wall
  • Stretch cone denim adds mobility when high stepping or heel hooking

A hidden gem

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Size Bought: 32

I have a couple other pairs of climbing jeans from some of the known companies and these Sierras from TNF stack up really well. They stretch as well as the other ones (except for the So iLL ones) and possibly feel the best of all of them. Really natural, not 'techy.' I love that there is a gusset too. Even if a pant has a lot of stretch, a gusset is always better IMO.

If you want a pant you can climb in, but don't like the nylon stuff, this is a great option because they will certainly not restrict you and feel like a pair of slightly soft denim jeans.

My only complaint is the size of the waist compared to the rest of the pants. Since these have a good amount of stretch, the waist has give and wearing these a while without a belt, they can tend to slide down more than I like. It's nice not to have to wear a belt, especially when climbing. I think they could make this better by having the waist sized a little smaller per pants size, since there is enough give. Or they could stitch a material that doesn't stretch to the inner waistband. Aside from this, I love that the fit is slim but with a little extra room in the seat and thighs.

New favorite

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love these pants. They fit really similar to my other favorite pant, The North Face Slim Motion. Denim feels durable, but stretchy and comfortable. Every pant should have a gusseted crotch. It makes it so much easier and more comfortable for any activity. Biking, hiking, running to catch the bus, etc. Thank you TNF for making a functional AND stylish pant.

Favorite Pants

Great Slim Fit pant for guys with thicker legs. They have a nice amount of stretch so climbing in them is no problem, and the cut is tapered, but plenty roomy and comfortable. They don't feel tight at any point in the leg. And they look nice enough to dress up, and casual enough to dress down. They've quickly become my favorite pair of pants.

Great Slim Pant

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 34

North face has started to offer some true slim fit pants, and they are rad. I got the Motion Slim Fit pant last year, and just got a pair of this jean. They are a modern/slim fit, but not skin tight at all still plenty of room to be comfy and still friendly for those of us with thicker legs.

The Navy color is interesting, they look more like a navy pant than a blue jean. If you're looking for a traditional jean look then I guess that's a bad thing, but I like that they are different.

The fabric is a good mix of thick/burly feeling, but stretchy and comfortable. I'm always a 34 and these fit in a 34, with a little extra room to party.

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 the hip circumference at the fullest part of the seat, keeping the tape horizontal around the body.
Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
Sleeve Length:
Measure the distance from the prominent bone at center back neck, across the shoulder, over the bent elbow to the center of the wrist bone.
