April Fools' right? Oh, it's July. Just a very stupid idea then.

I like the blurb on the Mammut website (http://www.mammut.ch/pm2012_realization_short_1)

"In comparison with existing concepts, where shorts or trousers are simply worn over a harness"

I knew I'd been doing something wrong...

In reply to UKC Gear: Will you be allowed on the bouldering wall in a pair?

So they won't let you tie in with a bowline but they will let you wear and buy a harness they can't tell if it is done up correctly..

without giving them a go i reckon they'd exceed even the old whillans harness for potential testicular trauma...

Got a project in a sensitive or banned climbing area? Like secret agent style concealed stuff? Worried about getting your gear confiscated by airport security? Like breaking and entering? Really fat and need a >20KN rated belt?

You need the new Mammut Realization Shorts!

Nightmare! if you inverted, once upon a time you only fell out of your harness, now you'll be on the ground in just your pants!

Soo... escaping the system will be interesting. Will have to flag down mountain rescue in your undies!

Also.. if they are washed by mistake on a mega high setting, or tumble dried... won't it completely right them off?

In reply to UKC Gear: This is bizarre, and really, is it necessary? Maybe this is the future! However I do think if they were really going all out they would maybe integrate a chalk bag back pocket or something, even if its just so you look like you're groping your bum mid climb.

'Is that a rope in your trousers or are you just happy to see me?'

In reply to UKC Gear: The next generation has integrated nuts just behind the zip.

No joke, I spoke to Mammut about them. They actually plan on releasing a female skort version as well.
I first saw them at the end of last year being worn Cedric Lachat and Sean McColl at a lead climbing comp (streamed live). The MC said "what the hell, that bloke is climbing without a harness" before being informed about the shorts.

Isn't a better idea the way Vaude do it, with a pair of trousers cut to allow a (loopo) harness to be worn underneath?

if you want that sort of thing.
