The Black Diamond Men's Notion Pant is an organic cotton stretch pant for indoor climbs and mild weather outdoor time. Bouldering or in a harness, a little bit of stretch has been blended into the organic cotton twill fabric to facilitate movement. Hand pockets and rear pockets hang onto items when not climbing, such as a phone or cash and ID. Reinforced knees keep them in the game for longer and a drawstring elastic waist prevents them from slipping down.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

Product Reviews
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bummed they changed the fit [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The pair I bought a couple years ago, before they got the little zip pocket in the side, was one of my favorite pants of all time. I wore them and wore them out accordingly. The second pair, also before they added the side zip pocket, was a tad smaller in fit, but still awesome. I am still wearing them and loath to think they will wear out. The third pair, this version with the side zip, fit like skin tight manpri pants. I wear them sometimes, but they are a bit too snug. I sized up to a Medium on my last pair and they are about right in the calf, but too loose in the caboose and waist. Boo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy, durable and provide awesome mobility. I have 3 pairs of these pants in different colours, they're great! I'm 5'9" and 150lbs, so I wear a size small (30" waist). These pants are incredibly comfortable, great to wear around town even when not climbing. Awesome durability and are stretchy enough to allow for some seriously high foot placements or heel hooks while climbing. I highly recommend these pants!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable, but showing the wear I've had these for 7 months now, and they have been in fairly heavy rotation in my climbing clothes. They have held up well, but are looking a bit worn around the knee patches. As others have mentioned, its a slim fit in the calves, but I don't really mind when they ride up a little there, it doesn't impede movement, and the elastic cuff stops them from getting high enough to look or feel awkward. The stash pocket on the outside of the right thigh is convenient and zips securely, and the small flap on the back pockets means I can keep a small wallet on me without worrying about it. I'm probably going to buy another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond Comfortable [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I put off trying these on until I got the chance after the hectics of the holiday season died down. Well I went climbing at my indoor gym this past weekend with these puppies on, and WOW. If you've climbed with pants on before, you know that it's doable. However, sometimes your range of movement may be restricted or the pants may be heavy or not the most comfortable. I find zero of these issues with these pants on. It's like wearing a pair of clouds. My girlfriend said that's how it feels to wear leggings. So, if you're looking for the perfect comfortable pair of climbing pants, look no further. (Plus they look good as hell)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fit not for everyone [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These pants are up there among the best options for climbing pants, however the fit left me wanting and I ended up returning them as a result. It doesn't come across in the photos, but these pants have a decidedly roomy fit. I have often had trouble fitting climbing pants because they are too tight on the butt and thighs, so this was an improvement from that, however on my the notion pants felt almost parachutey. The cuffs make you want to push up the ankles up to your calves, that bagginess gets even worse. They have a gusseted crotch for mobility, but for me the part of the pants between the crotch and waist is too long and sometimes feels weird when the pants bunch up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very comfy and, so far, durable Bought my first pair of these over a year ago and just recently got a second of the most recent styling and they are still awesome. Small changes from my first pair are negligible; different front pocket positioning and chalk brush pocket, overall these are very similar to the past iteration, sizing is the same (i.e. run big) i usually wear a large in most sizes with a 34 waist and thick thighs but with these the mediums are a perfect fit with ample room to move and not too baggy or sloppy looking. I wear these and my first pair predominately in the gym, under a harness and bouldering, and some outside bouldering and they have held up nicely. Would imagine these working well for outside sport climbing but would be concerned about their durability on sharp limestone or anything with a lot of knee-bars or butt scumming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So comfortable [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought these for my boyfriend for his birthday. He knew I loved these pants (I own two pairs). He rock climbs with me once a week and these are now his go to pants! They’re durable yet soft. His only complaint was they’re quite baggy at first but with a couple washes they shrink slightly and fit much better. He plans to wear them camping and hiking as well! I would recommend buying your normal size they don’t shrink enough to go up a size and the nature of the pant is to be baggy so even with some shrinkage they’re still plenty roomy for climbing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and Versatile Snagged these a few weeks back. Incredible stretch and comfort. The cuffed, tapered ankles are great for watching your feet. Drawstring waste-band is low profile and sits out of the way under a harness. The zippered side pocket is nice for stashing anything you need to keep secure. Drop in pockets are nice and lage too. I haven't put them through any chimneys yet, so I'm not sure how well they'd hold up to proper abuse. They work great for the gym, cragging, and bouldering. They also look nice enough to wear around town after climbing. I'm about 5'9", 155 lbs, and usually buy pants with a 29-31 sized waste depending on the brand. The smalls work perfectly for me. They run a little bit toasty, but in general breath fairly well for cotton. Only other thing to make note of is there is no fly opening. Will probably be grabbing another pair soon.
