The Foehn Brise Pant.

The Foehn Brise Pant.


Our tester wore the Brise for sport, trad, and bouldering at pretty much every climbing area in Boulder, CO—Eldo, the Flatirons, Boulder Canyon, The Spot gym—and fell in love. The 96 percent nylon/4 percent Spandex stretch fabric moved smoothly when highstepping, stemming, and heel-hooking, and held up well to abrasion on rough granite cracks and spiney limestone. His fave features: (A) the stash pocket with mesh divider on the right thigh (perfectly positioned below the harness leg loop), great for storage on multi-pitch climbs; and (B) the zippered ankle gussets, which fit snugly, never to get in the way or obstruct his view of his footwork.
