Long hazy days on the crag are coming and it’s time freshen up your gear. After a winter in the climbing wall, maybe it’s time to replace that tatty pair of climbing trousers that are being held together by chalk? Or treat yourself to a new top that’ll let you feel the sunshine on your shoulders.
There are some brilliant new clothing ranges out this spring from the likes of Black Diamond, Marmot and Moon as well as returning favourites from Wild Country, Patagonia and Prana. Cut for comfort, designed with climbing movement in mind and using tough materials to cope with whatever you can throw at them, they’ll see you right all the way to the post climb pint.
Here are a few of our picks, there's something for everyone whether you're into Lurid-Euro™ or #HealthGoth and everything between!. You can browse Outside’s summer collection here.
The legendary Moon Cypher Pant has had some excellent updates this year. You've probably already got a pair, but they'll surely be getting worn out from bum-shuffling the descents.
Wild Country Motion Jeans - Wild Country's clothing collection is pretty sweet this year, and these jeans are our favourite thanks to the articulated cut that's just perfect for climbing
