Being 6'4" it is rather difficult to find a pair of dedicated climbing pants that don't make me look like I'm prepared for a flood. Alas, I found these and decided to give them a try. Their first true test was on Castleton Tower in Utah and they worked out great. They're not too tight (I'm 205 pounds), but not so loose they get in the way while climbing. They have just enough stretch and the right cut in the groin area so that they don't restrict movement while high-stepping. The draw string that you can tie inside the pants instead of wearing a belt is great, because wearing a belt while climbing is annoying. The zippered front thigh pocket works great for holding a phone. The only complaint I have is with the hip pockets; they seem oddly loose compared to other pants I own which isn't really a problem overall and probably just nit picky. After a month of wear I still like them, they don't show any signs of wear and would recommend them to a friend.
