Credo Pants is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Potential for the perfect pant Nice pant for climbing because it is constructed in a way that encourages high-step and drop-knee kind of climbing, if that makes sense. The materiel needs to be a little more durable though as I've only used them for a month and they already have some holes in the knees and thighs from scrapes on branches and edges. I imagine lots of butt-starts will wear out the seat next. The belt loops have had lots of threads come fraying out. All of that being said the crotch is bomb-proof and really well designed. Maybe reinforce those high wear areas with a thicker cotton somehow because this pant is outstanding.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Pants but far too Short-lived I got the credo pants about six months ago and thought this would be the pant to rule all pants. Ironically, as I was shopping for more Credo pants online to get one in every color and even a second pair in the mocha color, the Credo's I was wearing ripped at the back seam. I had noticed before that the material appeared much thinner along the back seam after I washed the pants and held them up to the light, but assumed they would last a good long while. This is the third pair of BD bottoms that have ripped in the same spot. I climb and slack line and do yoga in my BD apparel. I thought they were designed to withstand an active lifestyle. I definitely expect more than some months out of my gear.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as durable as I hopped coming from BD I got these pants a few days before a climbing trip to Zion and Red Rocks. After about 4-5 days of wearing these pants, I had 3 holes is very weird places. These pants are designed well for the most part. The belt system is nice, they fit and move well but the type of fabric/weave they used is not durable enough to be a climbing pant. These are more or less slacks you would wear to your brothers bar mitzvah

Rated 2 out of 5 by from All The Right Elements There, Except Durability I bought these two months ago and had a rip in them within my second day of climbing. I love the fit and reinforced stitching, the adjustable ankle cuff and built in belt. All the makings of an amazing climbing pant are there, but they can't really handle contact with the rock. The holes I have are minor and on the outside of one leg, so I can still climb in them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice fit, for multi-use I bought these pants four months ago and am incredibly happy with them. The fit is much better than the original with the ankles tapering in a bit for a better look. I like clothes that have multiple uses. These work great bouldering or going out for a drink.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very comfortable These are very comfortable and have great range of motion. Unfortunately, crotch ripped while climbing after owning them for 4 months. Would still probably buy again but not might wear them climbing, or at least not anything difficult requiring high stepping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good climbing pants These pants are cut very well. I am 5'8" and the small fits perfectly in the waist and length. They stretch and move very well, and I really like the ankle toggles. I wear them primarily for face climbing routes. I doubt they would hold up well through a chimney or offwidth, but don't think that's what BD meant them for. My only complaint is the color selection. I have the navy blue pair and like them, but neon green and orange aren't for all of us. I wish they came in a normal tan color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from solid sport climbing pants these pants are great, they dont limit range of motion, are light, breathe well, and have good pockets. i'm 5'7" and the length of inseam of the small/30" is pretty much perfect for me they may not hold up to offwidth/body scumming but they are solid for sport climbing
