Function becomes fashion, especially when it fits as well as this technical below the knee capri does. The knees and seat are abrasion resistant, front panels are tough, and back panels breath with ease.
This is a technical ¾-length pant built for rock climbers. Besides being stretchy, the crotch is gusseted and the knees are articulated for uninhibited movement. The stretch woven fabric for the knees and seat has an abrasion resistant thread woven into it for extra durability. The front panels use an elastic durable double weave fabric and the backside is a lighweight stretchy fabric. Front pockets are zippered to keep valuables in and there are two convenient wallet pockets on the backside. Did we mention these will attract jealous eyes? The shizzle!

A piece of gear that has proved to be invaluable is my pair of Granite Climbing Pants and Capris. Both pieces are the standard go-to for all things rock climbing. I can't say enough good about them.
