Dogma Pants is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the usual durability. I bought these pants for use during a recent trip to the desert. As with other BD pants, these things fit well and are very comfortable. The adjustable waistline is great for wearing under your harness without a belt. Great feature. The issue I have with these pants was the durability. I wore these a single day doing single pitch routes in Moab... by the end of the day these pants had holes in the pocket area. I'm not sure I would recommend these pants for anything outside a casual hike. On the flipside the BD Alpine Light Softshell Pants do great and there durability is also awesome.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yow!! What happened to my Dogma Pants??? The brilliant belt feature made the cut, but the patch-pockets seem kinda cheap (also harder to USE in practice) and you know they'll blow out early. Big disappointment is the sweet little thigh-pocket— THAT is sorely missed!! C'mon BD… let's bring the original Dogma Pants back, and in primary colors, too. I see the new line is rather subdued in chroma. I got blue, orange and, yes, gray is ok for now but… how 'bout reconsidering the basis of the new design over the old. For the price, Levis are the dope; been climbing in over-size 501s for decades.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great look and fit, but bad quality.. Got these pants and day 1 took them out for a climb. Within 30 minutes of climbing I split the crotch of the pants. They are great pants but not climbing pants. This isn't black diamond quality...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Had to lower my rating Still think they are a comfortable pant and I like they double knee and butt . Perhaps my favorite climbing pant but after a few months of use like another reviewer noted the crotch blew out . I think this can easily be solved with a double stitch through the crotch . The pockets and knees have a double stitch , I don't understand why you would put a single stitch in a pant designed for activities like climbing. I look forward to purchasing another pair if this issue is resolved. Thank you, Joe Garcia

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Comfortable I bought two pairs of these and was immediately happy with how they fit. However, when I put the durability to the test I was disappointed. I work out in the woods and tend to go through work pants fairly quickly, but these lasted 3 days before the thorns ripped threads out everywhere and the crotch split. Very good pants, just not in the conditions I work in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy and great for climbing Bought these pants a size to bigger than usual because I was looking for extra comfort and figured the belt feature would be useless in my normal size. Maybe this why i have not blown out the crotch yet like other people. Since they are climbing pants I usually wear them when climbing or casual outings. When working, I wear working pants like carharts that are designed for that sort of abuse. With that said I have dragged my butt down a few skree fields and my BD pants have been holding up. While climbing I forget I'm even wearing pants... not to mention they look great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable, comfortable I haven't had any durability issues on my Dogma pants and I have roughed them up quite a bit both inside and outside. I really like the integrated belt and the patches/articulated knees.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Climbing pants! These pants are great ! I've wore them bushwaking to a backcountry area in Southern AZ , on long multipitch climbs and even Plumbing while doing underground's :) they have held up well beyond my expectations, they breath well and allow for great movement and flexibility. The only thing I would add would be a cell phone pocket on the thigh . My phone is my primary camera and topo while climbing . Thx, Joe Garcia
