Manufacturers produce climbing clothes with special designs to suit a wide range of climbing styles. The choice of material also depends on the intended use.
Special features and benefits
Climbing is an activity that puts demands on the whole body. Both the arms and legs are engaged in demanding exercise and movements. Climbing clothes are designed so that your freedom of movement is never restricted.
Manufacturers of climbing shirts pay close attention to freedom of movement in the shoulder area. In the case of climbing trousers, the step and the knee areas are also designed so that movement is unrestricted. The body-cut step usually consists of reinforced seams and a gusset. Pre-formed knee sections ensure the optimal fit of the trouser legs. So that the waist does not press under the harness, manufacturers i.e. E9 use flat-cut trousers. Climbing shirts feature by respiratory-active fibres which carry away perspiration from the body and don’t stick to the skin.
Climbing clothing thus offers:
Excellent freedom of movement which is optimised for climbing
Who uses climbing clothing?
Climbing gear is aimed at those who climb outdoors or in the hall. In addition to the climbing with rope protection by a second person, this clothing is also suitable for bouldering, which basically takes place at the jumping height.
Assortment of Boulder clothing
The range includes: t-shirts, pants, midlayers, jackets for climbing.
Women will find both fitted t-shirts as well as tank tops. The T-shirts are characterised by strong colours and have stylish designs.
The trousers include models with long legs and shorts. While some variants have a waistband with lacing, others are characterized by a wide ribbed waistband. Manufacturers equip their models with an adjustable elastic band in the hem.
The warm midlayers often offer a hood and a practical kangaroo pocket. The manufacturers of midlayer garments often use cotton, synthetic fibres, blended fabrics or merino wool. In contrast to the midlayers, the climbing jackets also provide protection from wind and rain. High collar, side pockets and partial hoods characterise these breathable jackets for climbing.
What is to be considered when buying climbing clothes?
Make sure you have the correct size when climbing. In order not to hinder climbing, the clothing should fit close to the body. Intelligent cuts and elastic materials ensure the necessary freedom of movement.
