Just getting back into climbing after a long lay off and looking online for a pair of bouldering/climbing pants. Have seen a pair of Red Chilli Mascaledo,s for £45. Question is does anyone one here have a pair and are they any good. Tried looking for reviews but there doesn't seem to be anything that really helps. Cheers in advance.
I highly recommend either the Black Diamond Notion pant or Wild Country Session pant.
Both slightly more than £45 but very good. Check the usual suspects and you can normally find them sub RRP!
Second the BD Notions. They last for ages, I have a pair that's 5+ years old and still going strong. Also have a clean pair that I wear round the house as they're so comfy!
In contrast to some patagucci rock pants that wore through in less than a year.
I got a pair from alpinetrek the other day, haven't been out climbing in them yet but comfortable and flexible, and seem like they will be a reasonably hard wearing material.
I've ordered another pair from bergzeit at £34.
When it’s guaranteed not to be wet I just wear a pair of stretchy jeans. Gap do a line called “software” which are almost as stretchy as a pair of my wife’s yoga pants (no exaggeration). I think they were 60 quid but got 2 pairs in a 241 sale.
Being jeans, I can wear them for much more than just climbing too
Even when I was a younger climber/boulderer I was never the real deal. Bright is good, I go for red as then when I wipe my hands on them after some horror show gritstone crack you can't see the blood. Now ordered when for it it light blue.
