The pitch of a lifetime rises above. Whose lead? Rock, paper, scissors: best two out of three. Throw your magic and rack up. Our RPS Pants were crafted for unrestricted movement on techy routes. Made from a nylon/polyester stretch-woven blend with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, they’re our lightest-weight rock-climbing pants. Minimalist detailing includes a crotch gusset and articulated patterning, a separating zip-fly waist with belt loops and our innovative OppoSet™ adjustable closure, and cuffs that cinch with an ultralow-profile shock cord and friction knot. With two drop-in pockets with mesh backing, two rear pockets that double as a reinforced seat and a right-thigh zip pocket that stays clear of leg loops.
  • Light and breathable synthetic-blend fabric has modest stretch and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish
  • Articulated pattern, darted knees and a gusseted crotch enhance movement and comfort under a harness
  • Separating zip fly with belt loops and unique OppoSet™ adjustable waist offer a customized fit
  • Drop-in hand pockets have breathable mesh pocket bags, darts for a lay-flat entry and a coin-catch bartack that doubles as a toothbrush holder
  • Two rear, top-entry pockets create a reinforced seat for added durability
  • Right-thigh security zip pocket sits comfortably above the knee and below harness leg loops
  • Cuffs adjust with an ultralow-profile shock cord and sliding knot

Water Resistant

DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.

Men's Rps Rock Pants is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stretch but... Bought several pair in Feb 2017. They stretch but don't then snap back, leaving you with a baggy backside until they are washed, at which point they return to their original shape.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love these pants! And some suggestions... I love these pants! I work in outdoor education and have used them on a month-long backcountry climbing course and a two week frontcountry climbing camp and, while they're pretty beat up now, they've held up well. I'll probably get another few month-long courses out of them. I love the strange-angle pocket as well, it makes sense all of a sudden when you're at a hanging belay and the pocket is vertical. Great design! Some suggestions: 1. Stronger stitching, please! Especially in the butt pockets, since when that stitching goes, the butt pockets end up just being a flap into your pants (great news for ticks, bad news for me) 2. Change the women's version to match the men's pocket design (I'm a woman and I bought the men's version). I am continually a little sad when I see a women's version lacking the great design I see in the men's. I'm happy to wear either, but I'd probably be a bit more comfortable in the women's cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and breathable I bought these a month ago and use them for hiking, biking, and landscaping work. The design is very functional. My wife says I look hot in them too : )

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Hiking My son needed lightweight yet sturdy pants for a hiking trip in Central America. These pants were perfect and survived 3 weeks of rugged outdoor travel in good shape. He is a slender 5'9" and 125 lbs. The 28" fit him well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Put these through a pretty thorough testing and would have to say these are some of my favorite 3 season pants. From a climbing perspective, they've been great and the cinch at the bottom is way underrated in general, working perfectly on these pants. I also have used these as general hiking pants in the summer in the 50-60s (sunny) temperature range and it was great, not over heating much and just cinching the legs up as needed. Took these also on a tour through Iceland in the summer, where the temperatures were ranging in the 40-50s (cloudy) and plenty of rain/moisture. I did wear a baselayer below and through a few light showers and walking around the waterfalls they dried out quickly. Would absolutely recommend. If I were to make one recommendation to the designers. I think the upper legs are appropriately sized to be flexible on these pants, but I would like to see the lower leg a little more tapered, and think that would still afford the style and performance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for rope climbing Lightweight, durable and the drawstring cuff are all good features. I have found them a bit restricting in the thigh - the material could use some more stretch or the crotch / quads could use some room. I find myself pulling these pants way up before giving a burn bouldering. Under a harness they function well because the leg loops can keep the pants where you want them... likely would have purchased the cotton (venga rock pants) had I been able to try on both in a store.
