Topic - Coloured climbing trousers

flaneur - on 08 Apr 2014
I need to replace my knackered climbing trousers. They will be used on sea-cliffs, mountain crags, non-serious alpine rock routes, sometimes in warmer climates. I'm looking for something lightweight, 100% synthetic, and wind-resistant. You'll be relieved to hear Ron Hills fail the latter criteria. They shouldn't be too insulating, I'd rather have the flexibility of wearing thermals on cold days and staying cool on warm ones. Continental European crags and shops are full of them.

My local shops have dozens of possibilities from the major manufacturers and most of them look like they would do the job but, as far as I can tell, only available in the UK in sludge colours: black, dark grey, brown, khaki, or (be still my beating heart) olive green.

Any suggestions for canary yellow, sky blue or crimson trousers, other than getting a flight to Chamonix?
