In rock climbing, finesse, footwork, and a little flexibility can go a long way. Inspired by the granite trickery of their namesake, the Stem Gem Crops enable unrestricted movement. The durable, yet stretchy-soft polyester and spandex knit fabric holds up to the abrasions of coarse stone, while allowing airflow and mobility. Fitted in the waistband and upper leg with contoured seams and a wide-leg fit, the cropped pants are flattering and functional. If the wide leg gets in the way of techy footwork, a hidden elastic drawcord at the cuff cinches down to help spot small edges and smears.
