/ REVIEW: E9 Clothing/Apparel Review
That 7B+ arete at JA Martin looks so good. Ran past it in the summer in the 25 bosses trail. Will be back in cooler temps, but probably not as well dressed as Rob
It really is a thing of beauty isn't it (the problem, not me...).
There is a slight blemish on its perfection: the left hand crimp near the top is like a knife. As such, bring your best skin and try to do it quick!
That said, I probably don't need to warn someone who's used to climbing on Dartmoor granite what sharp rock feels like ;-)
#Ive had a pair of E9 trousers for about 10 years - picked up randomly from The Foundry.
I've used them for all versions of climbing, bouldering, trad, sport, indoor.
Still use them. Only sign of wear is the pull chord tags at front have broken off. PS. I am a big bloke (read fat belly).
I still use them regularly. Recommend them to anyone.

So they could be spewing out fumes, furnishing their corporate offices with rare tropical hardwoods & emitting filthy waste into rivers and flying single t-shirts by plane to outlets, whilst powering their energy needs by coal.
Do they use compostable packaging, recycling consumer product waste...
To be applauded?
Come on. Before I even raise a weary hand to clap, I would like more info. Help me be a better climber.
