These pants are awesome. They work for martial arts, for yoga, for climbing... Basically for any activity that requires freedom of movement. Unlike other pants designed for yoga or climbing, though, these are sturdy and made of solid material. Also, I really didn't believe the talk about looking good on men and women until I actually saw people of both genders use them to do traditional Kung Fu. These are so far ahead of their competition, it's strange that nobody has made these before.
