“The Backcountry Double Dyno Climbing Pant features all the performance you need for sunny days on your favorite wall. This technical pant features a durable Cordura fabric that’s stretchy and abrasion-resistant, so you can heel hook your heart away on rough sandstone or sticky limestone problems. A zippered rear pocket offers a safe spot for any essentials you might want mid-climb, and an internal drawcord ensures a secure, adjustable fit.” — Backcountry
“The Wasatch Range is home to a variety of old school multi-pitches that may surprise the modern climber in terms of sandbagged difficulty and runout trad gear. Our Backcountry Mantle Climbing Pant is a great option for testing out your skills on the many routes found in this Utah range. It’s made of a stretchy Cordura fabric for performance-oriented mobility and long-lasting durability suitable for vertical offwidths.” — BC
“From pre-dawn ice wall ascents to early mornings on the skin track, the Backcountry Hybrid Grid Fleece Pullover delivers breathable performance and smart insulation. The hybrid construction uses a mix of grid and hard fleece to create warmth where you want it and breathability where you need it; the fleece is thicker at your core, and breathable in places where perspiration is likely—the back and underarms. The hood is built to discourage ice build up during winter sports, with laser-cut ventilation and a shaped binding, so you’re free to keep it equipped even while you’re working hard. A nice dose of stretch in the construction ensures full mobility whether you’re wielding ski poles or an ice axe, and the strategically placed seams keep chafing to a minimum beneath your pack.” — BC
“Pentapitch is a multi-pitch climb in Little Cottonwood Canyon in our home region of Northern Utah, and it stays in the sun most of the day. Instead of applying sunscreen at each anchor, the Backcountry Men’s Pentapitch Pullover Hoodie shields your skin from the sun’s harsh sunlight. Its light fabric feels great in warmer weather, and it has a four-way stretch for full mobility on the mountain. The hood keeps rays from burning the back of your neck while you belay, and the 1/4-zip front adds ventilation when you get too warm. An adjustable waist helps keep this hoodie under your harness while you climb.” — BC

“Steort’s Ridge is a popular multi-pitch in the heart of Backcountry’s backyard, the Wasatch Range. Although it’s mostly shady throughout the day, climbing all three pitches can feel quite hot in the summertime. The Backcountry Steort Climbing Short is certainly the best option for those warmer days on the rock. Its four-way stretch fabric promotes free movement on the climb, and the short’s gusseted construction ensures full mobility on the mountain. The fabric has a DWR treatment to shed moisture and keep a clean look on all your adventures.” — BC
