Our Ascender Pants are designed and built to help you climb in comfort and style without ever having to worry about durability. What customers love: "made for climbing; great range of motion; durable; long-lasting; reinforced knees offer great protection


Whether you are climbing a tree or rock face, it’s imperative to have a pair of pants that are extremely durable, incredibly comfortable, breathable, and stretch with every move your lower half makes. Our Ascender Pants are made from a blend of 4-way stretch 89% Nylon and 11% Elasthane, with a Rugged Gusset™ crotch to ensure your legs are covered but free to move as they wish. Your tree climbing gear needs to hold up over time, so both knees are articulated and reinforced with fabric for extreme abrasion resistance. Two front pockets and two rear pockets along with a side cargo pocket and utility pocket. Add in a Teflon™ fabric protector that repels most water and oil-based liquids and you have a pair of pants that work hard to keep you working hard.

Best tree pants! I have worn the same 2 pairs of these pants 5 days a week for the past 3 years. A few of the metal pieces on the zippers recently broke off and some of the stitching on the bottom of the legs started to come undone too (nothing a little hand sewing can't fix). The few rips never got worse. These pants are the sheet! Just bought 2 more, still wearing the 3yr old ones. Well worth the $$$. Keep exposed mufflers away, burned a little hole in one pair. No problem walking through jaggers. Super comfy. I could keep going on about how sweet these pants are. Good job Arborwear!

For mission critical assignments these are my go to pants. I can wear them on the plane, on the subway and throughout the streets of New York. The side pocket holds a phone, MTA card and some Ben Franklins. No matter how dirty or rough the assignment these pants hold up. The zippered back and front pockets add to a trim and slim look. These work best for guys who stay in shape. When you get called into action and you need to be wheels up in 30 minutes, these pants will carry the day.

just got these, climbed in them wore them around for a few days, THE most comfortable intuitive pants I have ever worn! I love the originals and the tech pants, but these blow them both away in terms of comfort and feel. Love the 4 way stretch, and the pockets are well laid out, the ability to sneak in the side of the left cargo pocket is genius as wearing a saddle usually means you are not getting into it. the reinforced knees are sweet and being able to tighten the cuff to keeps chips out is golden. I wore them thru a prickly ash cluster to get my throw-weight and they shed the sharp thorns without sweating a drop . I plan on ordering another pair and the new canopy pants for warmer months, as these are very warm even in -21c+ weather.

I've used these pants to climb and hike in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah as well as in the Subway of Zions National Park. These pants are not only bullet proof but are the most comfortable pants I've ever worn. The design gives me all of the right pockets, and the stretch truly reduced fatigue, and they dried quickly after getting wet. Karl Badger Field Editor, Top Rated Gear

Pockets need improvement. The mesh material chosen for the pockets are lightweight and breathable but keys, screws, nails or anything a little pointy get tangled in the mesh. Change the pocket material and I would give a 5/5.

Reviewed by Will

Pros: Unbeatable range of motion Lightweight Outstanding build quality Cons: Knee reinforcements can become really uncomfortable during prolonged kneeling. Waistband liner tends to slip and slide even with a belt. Charcoal pants get VERY warm in summer conditions. A water-resistant version would be an amazing edition.
