Topo DesignsClimb Pant - Men's

A climbing essential.

Whether its a weekend at Red Rocks or a week of big wall climbing in Zion National Park, the Topo Designs Men's Climb Pants will give you the durability and stretch you need to send your next project. Made with a combination of durable cotton and stretchy Lycra, the Climbs are designed to maximize mobility, without sacrificing durability. And as an added bonus, they look pretty dapper, so you'll look alright when you roll into the nearest town to re-stock on beans, rice, and beer.

  • Q & A

Nice fit, poor durability.

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

To be clear, I bought my Climb Pants directly from Topo Designs. They don't have review options on their website, so here I am.

Initially I loved these pants; they are slimmer than most climbing pants I'd worn in the past and the overall look was great. Not to mention I loved the idea of supporting a smaller company here in the US (although the pants are made in Vietnam). I even have their climb shorts and some tees from them.

The problem is durability. After just 6 short weeks of climbing at my local gym (that's right, only indoor climbing), I started to notice excessive wear on the knees. I’m certainly not crawling around in them or knee-barring either. For the price, the durability of these pants is a joke. I expected more from a pant marketed specifically towards climbers. The other frustration is the lack of communication with Topo Designs; I've email several times regarding this issue with no response.

Sadly, I do not recommend these pants.

Not worth the price

Had really high expectations buying these pants as I've never climbed in "climbing pants" before. Got them, tried them on, and immediately sent them back. For a slim fit they aren't all that slim, and the material didn't feel great to me. I wouldn't even say they are that much slimmer than the carhartts I usually climb in but I'm sure the gusseted crotch would have been nice. I know these are made in the USA and all, which is nice to support, but I just don't understand the price point. For reference I'm tall and skinny 5'11" 145lbs, so maybe these pants would fit better on other people? Can't say I recommend them. Buy two pairs of carhartts and a burrito instead.

Ehh!

Fit was really wrong for me. The pants seemed like they're made well, but nothing else was right in my opinion. They fit too small, too slim, and too short. The color was Christmas green. The price is way too high. I got a pair of Prada Bridger olive pants literally for half the price, and like them three times as much.

Most comfortable Pants

Not only are these the most comfortable pants, they fit and look good as well. Good amount of stretch with a durable feel. I wear these to work, hiking, and the occasionally the climbing gym.

Great fit

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

These and 2 sets of shoes were a wedding gift to a friend. As you can see by the photo, they fit great and work great.

Awesome Fit

Even though these have a slim fit, they fit my muscular legs b/c of the Lycra.
