Another vote for the prana stretch zion pant (and just cuff them if you want 3/4 length). Charles Kinbote

3/4 pants suggestions? My suggestion if you are considering man-capris is to hit yourself in the face with a flatrock until the urge to wear something like that passes. camhead

Self portrait.
Sorry, I know this is an old post. However, I'm a fan of 3/4 pants. I have short legs and most companies don't really cater to men with 28-29 inseam. Thus, short pants are great if you don't have long legs (apparently everyone has a 30 inch inseam).

I love the Outdoor Research Men's Ferrosi 3/4 pants. They're made with a tough 86% nylon, 14% spandex, stretch woven fabric that really allows a lot of movement without restriction. They have shockcord at the bottom so you can tighten them up when you need to. Good pockets. Super comfortable.

Not cheap, but priced better than some of the more expensive options I've seen posted.

All of the OR Ferrosi products are awesome.

Why hasn't anyone suggested paisley spandex tights with a lime green tank-top.

This rig moves well and looks good too.

Bring back the 80's!

Ummm... Scissors.

Arborwear has great pants, like carhartts, but you can high step in them...

there is a 4-5" gusseted crotch for flexibility, compared to 2" in a carhartt...

They have shorts and pants, no 3/4s, but i didn't look in the women's section

I suggest a trip to the thrift shop to pick up whatever you can find. 170 bucks on designer climbing pants is silly. Wool dress pants work good for me. Especially a light pair. They are cheap, stretchy and don't smell bad when you wear them longer. Sam Keller

Pants are like ropes - buy them long, then chop when necessary.
Also, wearing expensive pants climbing is like throwing money into a fire

hello
Stop listening to what haters on the internet say and wear whatever the heck you want. But it's a lot cheaper and more multifunctional to just buy normal length pants and roll them up. I climb in oversized scrubs (cheap at salvation armani), but if you insist on spending $80 on pants (which I admit to having done), I like the Patagonia Venga pants. Super light, stretchy, and if your friends are like mine they will yell VENGA VENGA VENGA like jerks. caesar.salad

Goodwill is a definite option. Consider military surplus stores, too: not quite as cheap as Goodwill, but often super-durable. But stretchy is good, too, and that's not gonna happen on anything second-hand.


Unless you buy girl's jeans. They'll probably be 3/4 length on you too. I've considered it...

I just wear woman's capris. I'm pretty curvy though.. Just steel 'em from your girlfriends, nice and cheep. Oh the breeze.. and no scraped knees!! I mean come on. Unless your cool. Then I would not recommend this. Eldo Love

Haha, the "guy in that photo" is Emilio Comici, who, even today, could probably climb circles around most of us.

I have pretty sweet calves though. It's really my only redeeming feature. And my knees get scraped. Solution: I can fake a euro accent.
