Gramicci's Elevese Shorts ($36) are great for sport climbing. Made of Volare Jersey cotton fabric, these athletic shorts are knee-length and do a good job protecting the leg. The drawstring waistband fits comfortably under harnesses, and there's an mp3 pocket to stash an iPod during the redpoint. Testers also loved the Respirez Hoodie ($56), a form-fitting zip-up sweatshirt that is perfect for belaying, bouldering and warming up in the morning. Check out Gramicci's website for more.
