Stonewear Pant Review: Madaleine Sorkin on climbing in her favorite climbing pants (Fall Line)
I appreciate my Stonewear Pants for their versatility. I wear them hanging out around the house, doing yoga on the front patio, or going sport or gym climbing. I have a pair of the pants, capris, and a couple pairs of the shorts. The reasons I love this style of pant are: the shorts are long enough that I can wear them with a harness; all styles look good on (I love the “v” dropped waistband); they have a narrow ankle cuff that doesn’t flop around while I exercise (so I don’t step on the cuff while climbing); and I don’t notice them. For me, the most important thing about a climbing pant is that it allows me to move with total freedom. I don’t want anything to interfere with my focus. I recently traveled to Spain for a month to train at the stout sport climbing areas there. I forgot my actual climbing pants, and so I bought a pair of Spanish pants, typical of what the local climbers wear. They had a reinforced butt and knees and were made of a stiff material. Unfortunately, I couldn’t actually move in them. So, I ended up wearing my “casual” Stonewear Pant for the entire trip. That’s when I really began to appreciate the Pant. I’ll always have a pair in my wardrobe now.
