Patagonia Aimless Jeans – Tough Climbing Pants

Patagonia Aimless JeansI think I’ve finally found the perfect pair of climbing pants. I’ve tried thin cotton, synthetic, regular jeans, always feeling like something just wasn’t quite right.

I had some other Patagonia pants I once liked, but the material was so thin it wore through rather quickly. These seem to have just the right combination of durability, flexibility, and of course, style.
