It might be a hot day at the crag, but you're sliding on the Black Diamond Men's B.D.V. Shorts and going climbing anyway. The combination of the durable Schoeller stretch-woven nylon shell and climbing-specific gusset lets you move up the wall comfortably, and its NanoSphere Technology resists grit and grime so you can always head to the bars afterward without looking like a homeless person. The adjustable waistband is so low-profile that you won't notice it when you're hanging at each belay. Its Movement Fit Block design makes the B.D.V. excellent to climb in, and the two-way zippered fly eases emergency bathroom breaks when you're on a multipitch all day long. Yes, it might seem like it's too hot to climb, but with the B.D.V. shorts on, every day is a day dedicated to sending regardless of the temperature.
