Gramicci Nylon Trousers

Gramicci was conceived in the shadow of El Capitan by climbing legend Mike Graham. They’ve been making their renowned climbing trousers and shorts for well over thirty years, celebrated for the ‘freedom of movement’ design Graham pioneered in the early 80s. A true vanguard.
In recent years the profile of these elasto-slacks has been raised outside the climbing community, largely thanks to guys like Alex Humboldt and a wider interest in action leisure clothing.
Leading brands have picked up on this and begun offering their own functional drawstring trousers, but Gramicci will always be the original – and they come in around 100 boulders cheaper.
The company’s Japanese division fuses decades of American innovation, experience and industry leadership with technical fabrics and general Japanese know-how. The nylon shell jogger pants, picture here, are a product of this hybrid of quality. Just as useful for couch potatoes as they are halfway up the Dawn Wall.
