Simond Women’s Rock Pant Fit

Sitting just below the belly button, the Rock pants offer a compatible fit with climbing harnesses and rucksacks. The trouser legs are fitted, and flare out slightly around the ankle to allow for more movement and less chafing. 

The pants’ fabric is made up of 12% elastane; and as someone with large, muscular legs a little disproportionate to her torso, this offers an ideal fit – no worrying about gaps in the waistband, or ripping seams around the bum or thighs when going for a dyno!

The trouser length is a regular fit, which when wearing hiking boots means the legs aren’t dragging on the ground, nor ending before the ankles.

Each season the Rock pants are released in a different colour; for those that like a flash of colour, the Rock pants have come in azure and royal blue. A standard grey is also available.

Simond Women’s Rock Pant Features

In addition to the flexible fit, the Rock pants are water repellant, and have pockets positioned so that you can access them even when wearing a harness. The knees are also pre-formed to increase mobility – very handy on crag routes that require so big stretches!
