    Default Found some comfortable pants - cheap

    https://www.wrangler.com/shop/mens-p...rgo-pant-nw780

    Found these by accident at Wal Mart. They are moisture wicking and fast drying. Got lucky and found one pair in my size. I'll keep a check for more. Only wore them a couple of times but very cool and comfortable. Stretchy waist. 2 zippered pockets below the front pockets and to the side a little. They work good for carrying a phone or other small items while wearing a harness. They're about $22. I just can't wear bluejeans in hot weather anymore. I can't bring myself to pay $200 for actual climbing pants and these seem to do pretty good.

    I'll have to check my local store. They even look stylish. $200 climbing pants? "I'm staying on the ground today guys. I forgot to wear my climbing pants."

    My work pants were $10 slacks from WalMart. I hate hot heavy jeans!

    Nylon and spandex, no thanks. I’d burst into flames about 5 seconds after starting work, that is if I didn’t get laughed off the site.

    I have 2 pairs of those with fleece lining. They're very comfy and are holding up well. Gusseted crotch and stretchy material make them good for climbing. Cheap little nylon zipper though. Keep expecting it to break, but hasn't yet.

    Next time I'm at Target or Wal-Mart maybe I'll get a pair of the unlined ones.

    Yeah. They definitely let the air in. Wouldn't be any good in cooler weather.

    I usually swear by Arborwear Tech II pants, but could go with something cooler, and cheaper.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.
