***Giveaway entry form at bottom of post*** An ideal climbing pant would include a few essential features: zipped pockets to keep items from falling out while dangling inside a steep cave. The knees and seat would be durable enough to outlast being dragged across granite. The pant would be fitted, yet unrestrictive. It would be made with enclosed belt loops and quick dry material, to keep it comfortable to wear. Rolling up the cuffs for climbing would be easy, and there would be a loop in the back to clip a chalk bag to. This is the Washakie pant, dreamed up and designed by Hailey DeMarois and Hans Howell, who couldn’t find a pair of climbing pants they loved. In 2008 they founded Roscoe Outdoor, a Montana clothing company based in Red Lodge. Hailey and Hans built their business from the ground up, starting with the Washakie pant in both a men’s and women’s fit. The pant, while designed with climbing in mind, can be used for all kinds of outdoor activities, especially hiking and backpacking. The design also features reflectors and a cuff that will cinch around your calves, incidentally making it the ideal pant for biking. Click here to read our full story on Roscoe Outdoor.
