RAB's Fulcrum pants are ideal warm weather pants for a range of activities. Made from light and super stretchy Matrix DWS material they are comfortable to wear offering freedom of movement.
Rab says: The Fulcrum Pant is a super light-weight, quick drying climbing pant, with a stretch Matrix DWS™ fabric, designed for mountain use in warm conditions.
A slim fit combined with the 4-way stretch of the Matrix DWS™ fabric provides excellent comfort and freedom of movement, whilst an integrated webbing belt makes the Fulcrum Pant great for technical climbing use. The Matrix DWS™ fabric also provides 30+ UPF protection, making the Fulcrum Pant ideal for summer climbing in hot environments.
All the essentials for a summer days climbing can be stored in hand and thigh pockets, and kept secure by YKK CONCEAL® bonded zips.
RAB's Fulcrum pants are promoted as a climbing pant but we think they're too good to give exclusively to the climbing community! Made from think and highly stretchy Matrx DWS fabric they are extremely comfortable to wear which makes them ideal for a wide range of activities. The thinness of the Matrix fabric points to summer suitability - ideal for warm climates.
There are some climbing cues in the styling of the pants, the belt for example is mainly concealed reducing the chance of a snag, and the buckle uses a climbing style hook. The ankle hems are shock corded so you can cinch in and reduce flap.
Most of all they are a close fitting but stretchy pair of outdoor pants with two hand pockets although no rear pocket.
