Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant I've got two pairs of the old style and I wear them every day for climbing, cycling and gym work. As a generic pair of gym shorts they're pretty much perfect; no excess fabric and enough stretch to give you total freedom of movement. Underneath a harness they're great too. You don't really notice them, they just work. Seams lie flat, pockets in the right place, they just don't get in the way. Given the style of fabric, they're small and light, so great for travelling. I use them literally daily and they look exactly the same as when I bought them. Will be picking up some more when they appear in my local climbing shops.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but... I have a few pairs. I love the fit, style, and versatility of these shorts. I have also experienced the issue of the belt bar tack ripping through the waistband fabric on every pair I own. One would be a fluke, two bad luck. The same failure on five pair is a design flaw.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Clumsy, poor fit, and dissatisfied I bought these shorts with mild expectations... So far they have not held up well... I tried pushing these shorts climbing and hiking but are uncomfortable with a harness and lead to bad chafing in the hip area with short hikes. They've now been retired to sitting on the couch and painting the house. Cons: -they make a lot of noise while hiking -rough fabric -chafing in the waist -they ride up even with a belt -phone and wallet pop out of shallow pockets -generally uncomfortable Pros: they look okay... I wouldn't recommend. You have much better options out there. BD usually does a great job... Not this time. Wish I could return them

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Feels nice but not durable They feel very nice, and the design make them great for moving around. I am able to sit in a squat or do very high steps without feeling any restricstions. Sadly the thread started coming apart between the legs after only 2 weeks of casual use. This is very disappointing as they should be alot more durable, especially if they are to be used for climbing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice fit and fabric, disappointing flaws Nice weight fabric with some stretch and a longer inseam led me to purchase these. Sadly the integrated belt pulled right out the first time I tried them on. Figured I’d still be able to wear with a belt but the first two belt loops on either side of the button are too far around the side, so your belt ends up riding up above the button and waistband. Disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great climbing shorts with a small DIY mod needed Overall this is a great pair of shorts for climbing while wearing a harness. They are just on the snug fitting side but stretchy so no excess fabric getting in the way. The groin and torso fit is such that they dont ride up with a harness on at all and the length is just above the knee, my favorite length for climbing shorts. The hem stays there even in a harness which is awesome. The specific waist sizing is awesome and much better than S/M/L for truly athletic body types. Not given much emphasis is the zippered pocket on the right thigh allowing easy access to small things while roped up. They are really comfortable to just hang out in as well. My few criticisms are the fly is really short and guys will find going #1 roped up really complicated. The zippered thigh pocket doesnt fit a Galaxy 9 sized phone. The built in belt has been called out before and I can see why it fails- it is secured with one wimpy tack under the left front belt loop. You have 2 choices, let it blow out and use the belt loops with a real belt or add a few bar tacks with a sewing machine to back up the wimpy tack. I think it's best to do this in front of the belt loop to allow max stretch in the short bit of elastic in there. Use a different colored thread for a little bit of DIY style! Just a final comment on fit- I wear a 32 or 33 waist. I got a 32 and they fit nicely. The belt is on the second to tightest attachment point of the 5 available. They can be a bit bulgy if I wear boxers though. Just a tradeoff for a great fit with a harness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts Awesome pants. Work hard, look great, super comfortable. Only knock is that the colour fades pretty quickly, but that’s no big deal
