Men's Ferrosi Pants™ (short)

Style# 55526OR

The ideal rock climbing soft shell pants, the Ferrosi Pants™ are never too hot but always block shiver-inducing wind and light rain on an exposed belay high off the deck. Lightweight, rugged, wind resistant and highly breathable, with stretch and full coverage for smooth movement when scrambling and climbing, these pants provide protection for rough and rugged alpine and rock environments. Desert sandstone or Cascade granite, the Ferrosi Pants™ are ideal for rock climbing and hiking; They provide durability against abrasive rock, breathability and ample stretch for free-flowing movement. The "Short" version provides a little less length in the inseam, for those folks who take shorter strides on the trail.

Randy Newman's Demise (Review by Bob M)

Yes--a super pair of pants for short people! Well, actually I'm 5'8" but have a 28 1/2" inseam and am soooo tired of paying to have pants shorted. These pants have well thought out features: pockets in the right place, nice choice of fabric weight, soft feel but durable, nice cut while allowing tremendous freedom of movement., and drawstring on the leg bottom to raise them into knickers.
Two wishes: a similar pair in slightly heavier fabric for fall/spring temps and more pants available with a short inseam

Would be absolutely perfect if had odd sizes (Review by Maui Boy)

Tried these pants out for hiking/camping in wet warm to hot weather. They performed wonderfully in 2 days of nearly constant light to moderate rain. So stretchy and comfortable, and either shed all the rain, or dried nearly instantly when they got wet. Wifey says they look pretty good as well. Short length worked perfectly as I usually wear 30" jeans/pants. True to size. But they would be absolutely perfect if they came in odd sizes. at 5'7" 152#, the 30's are too tight, the 32's too loose. So I'm rocking the 32's with a belt. Works well, but for lightweight technical pants, I didn't really want to have to wear a belt. Amazing pants.

Nice pants (Review by jclimb1)

Nice lightweight softshell paints with good features for a great price. These pants with other names on them would easily cost twice as much. Thanks for making them in a short version. My only complaint, which has nothing to do with the design of the pants, is that I thought they would be a bit thicker.
