A surprising balance of lightweight fabric that is designed to be tough enough to excel for climbers. These pants are perfect for maximum mobility and comfort on rock faces.

Mountain Equipment says

Versatile, quick drying climbing pants as at home in the mountains as they are on valley test pieces and roadside problems. Ascender fabric balances the toughness required for a US road trip against the mobility and quick drying performance needed for long Scottish approaches and questionable Lofoten forecasts. The climbing fit has been designed with vertical mileage in mind and the elasticated waist sits perfectly under a harness.

Our Verdict

Mountain Equipment's Inception Pants use the Ascender fabric which is specifically designed with climbers in mind. This material allows the pants to keep a low weight while also providing a tough, durable layer between you and the rock. The design is simple and aimed at performing on the approach to crags and when you're heading up. The fit is looser than many might expect due to the focus on freedom of movement and the semi-elasticated waist is part of this. 

The fabric is fast drying which works perfectly if you get caught out en-route to the summit. These are really comfortable pants and you'd be able to wear them for any outdoor activities despite the climbing focus. Four basic pockets provide options for carrying essentials.
