      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Pants fit question

Recommended Posts

I am just getting into mountaineering, and I got a pair of Patagonia guide pants. My question is how are the supposed to fit? They feel great in the waist and crotch area, but they are close fitting on the legs, is this normal? I wouldn't call them tight, but they fit much closer to my legs than a pair of jeans. I have great movement in them, and a little room for an insulation layer.

Great pants! - I love mine. IMO less extra fabric in the legs is a good thing as it lowers the odds of catching them with your crampons.

for insulation layer, you might try an ultralight shell layer over your tight pants.

That's exactly what you need. Close enough to keep you warm, doesn't restrict movement and room for a base layer.

 

I have worn the hell out of my guide pants and they are still functional.
