Patagonia Women's RPS Rock Pants - Lightweight Bouldering and Rock Climbing Pants
Rock, Paper, Scissors: Better your odds with the cool and confident Patagonia Women's RPS Rock Pants. The lightest climbing pants Patagonia makes, they’re built to pull cruxes 10 feet or 10 pitches up.
The pitch of a lifetime rises above. Whose lead? Rock, Paper, Scissors, best two out of three. Throw your magic and rack up. The Patagonia RPS Pants give you unrestricted movement on techy routes. They’re Patagonia's lightest-weight rock-climbing pants, made from a nylon/polyester stretch-woven fabric with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, and transform easily into capris with a simple pull of the hidden elastic drawcord at the hem. A modest, comfortable fit allows freedom of movement on steep, sticky hikes with room for a baselayer during an open bivy. The waist features a unique adjustable button closure, zip fly and low-profile belt loops. Two front drop-in mesh pockets lie flat under a harness, while two integrated rear patch pockets offer an extra layer of protection for your seat on ledge belays. A zippered thigh pocket holds a topo, lighter, lip balm and other small goods.
