Rated 3 out of 5 by from Big ups but big downs I really want to love these jeans. Originally purchased a 32x34 which fit me great, moved and stretched super well, and brushed off abrasions on stone no problem. But then the pockets started falling apart in an identical way to what other reviewers have described and shown pictures of. No problem, BD was really helpful and exchanged them for me, but now the new pair (in the same size) fit gigantic in the waist and inseam. So far so good with the new pockets though. "Seams" like (get it?) whoever is doing the manufacturing for BD has some real QC issues. If that ever gets ironed out I would happily purchase these pants again

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awesome jean- durability is the worst I have seen. Got this set for Christmas and within 1.5 months of easy use they were starting to fall apart. I noticed extra wear and color change between the legs, but the worst part is the pockets are falling apart on both sides, but in different areas. These were my favorite jeans so I bought another set before I knew how bad the durability is and now I have $200 worth of jeans that are falling apart. Hoping Black Diamond fixes the durability and makes this right to the customers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Durability in question I got these jeans as a Christmas present and already in 2 months of casual wear the stitching is coming undone inside the pocket. I have also noticed that the pants are wearing at a much higher rate between the legs, which I would not have guessed would be noticeable with cordora denim. Fit is great and look is awesome, but I would have expected a pant like this to be able to take a beating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy Pant fit very snug even on a slim frame. Stretch is amazing. Durability not yet known. Thanks BD for getting some pants that are sized by waist and length!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Jeans, Terrible Colour I've had these jeans for about a month & they have a great amount of stretch, seem well constructed (so far, used about 10 times and no abrasions at all) and a pretty good cut if slightly baggier in lower leg than I was hoping for. For reference, I'm 6'3 and a 30 inch waist, most 'slim' cuts end up fairly skinny on me. My only real issue is the colour, which is shockingly bad for a product this expensive. I ordered black because I wanted black. And the outside is black, however these jeans started their life as raw denim & seem to have been dyed after construction. Only the outside is black (even the bit of denim inside the pocket, before you reach the cotton, was blue denim, as though the dye had been sprayed) and the inner leg was raw blue denim, which kind of ruins the look if you roll the cuffs like 90% of climbers I know. I ended up having to dye these at home to get the colour I thought I'd paid for, which really isn't good enough for a £100 pair of jeans. Unfortunately no pictures as I only realised this was a review worth writing after I'd finished dying them. I'd still recommend as they're great jeans, especially if you want blue denim, but there are probably better products out there if you want black right out of the box.
