Boys' Open Bottom Climber™ Pants
Disability Friendly and Top Notch Longevity
My son has Cerebral Palsy and walks on his knees all the time. I was purchasing pants every month because the knees would just wear out. These pants only started to show wear at the knees the second week of June, after 10 months of everyday wear. He wore them to school, during gym, and to therapy all the time. So very happy to finally find a true "Tough Knee" pant that holds up to everyday use. I made them into shorts for the summer and they still look great. The elastic waist is a big help, he is able to tend to personal matters without assistance. Button waists pants create a real self esteem issue for us. Thank you Landsend for creating a pant that will hold up for a disabled child. So happy my son now has a presentable pant that can out last a school year! Thanks for being Disability Friendly, that means more than you know!

The only pants you'll need to buy!
I have twin boys, 14 yrs, and they have been in Land's End climber pants since elementary school; I just keep buying the next size up as they grow. They haven't had much need for any other pants - the climbers are great for school and play (love the double knees) and work for even "dressier" occasions - out to dinner, recitals, parties - just add a nice polo and sweater vest. Fit great - just roll the bottoms up if they are too long and they grow with you. Easy on/off even for the littlest children - I work at a school and so many kids cannot handle the zippers and tough snaps on jeans. Just pull these up - elastic waist is comfy and easy and the belt gives a custom fit (adds a dressy touch too). Weight is perfect year round. My kids wear them every day, and I wash them after every wear (who knows what they sit on at school!) and the colors/shape/fabric have held up fabulously. They always outgrow them before they are worn out - even the knees are fine. So instead of buying lots of different pants for kids who are growing so fast, just invest in a few climber pants and you're good until the next growth spurt.

kids love these
I have been a faithful purchaser of these pants as my boys have grown. They love the ease with which these elastic waist pants pull-on. I love that they always clean-up well and look presentable. My only complaint is that the rear pockets are so thick at the seam area that it begins to wear away the material in the seat of the pants - before the knees wear out!! This is especially true in the blue jean fabric - 2 small wear spots begin to show and then the fabric wears through. But overall, I would recommend these pants. My kids request them.

Rugged pants that look nice
We've been buying these for years. They take all the abuse my kid dishes out and still look great. I love that they are rugged enough to be play pants but still look a bit more put together than more casual pants.

Fade on everything!
I have bought these pants every year since he was about 3. He is now 12. He has cerebral palsy in his hands and sensory issues, so these have worked well for him. Plus he is very skinny, so the slim ones are about the only pants he can keep up! BUT this year, I bought a several pairs of the Indigo color- the ones that are jeans. After 4 washings, they still fade on anything in the same wash with them. This is even if I wash them in cold water with mild detergent. If my son sweats any when he wears them, they fade on his other clothing! The denim ones in the past were already stone washed and did not fade. Basically, he cannot wear these and I wasted my money! Please return to the stone washed material so that my son can have some jeans! See the picture I attached of some white underwear. One pair was washed with these pants and you can see how badly the dye bled!

these pants have the best fit
this fit works well for school uniform and every day. The material is a nice fall/winter weight and I am very happy that it is sized is the husky line.

Love the built-in belt. Top quality and great fit.
Bought for 7 yr old boy for school uniform. The fit is roomy but tailored structure. The belt is a really nice feature because it is elastic but also allows adjusting the waist fit at the belt buckle, and for boys in a hurry they can pull the pants on and off without always undoing the belt. These are the only style I will by from now on!

My son is a true 4 Slim in all other Lands End pants (Slim Iron Knee Boat Pant and Open Bottom Cargo Climber ) I ordered 2 pairs of these jeans in Dark Indigo in a 4 Slim...I also ordered the same jean (on sale) in a 5 slim to have for later to grow into. These 4 Slim in Dark Indigo are WAY to long. I matched them up to the 5 Slim and they are exactly the SAME length. The waist on this dark indigo jean is a true 4 Slim however. This jean would work for a boy that has the waist of a 4 slim and the length of a 5. The inseam of this jean was 18 1/2 ". All other 4 Slim pants we have are about 16" inseam. These need to go in the "not quite perfect" section. We will have to return them.

Absolutely love these pants. My boys wear them for school uniform. Comfortable with built in belt.
These pants hold up! Been buying them for 6+ yrs, and never a rip. Comfortable and they look great with a polo for school use. Highly recommend them, no fussing with zippers and they have built in belt plus elastic waist for those not so skinny boys.

The only pants they wear.
My two boys have worn these for years. They love the ease of putting them on. I love the look, fit and wear of them. Two tough boys have yet to wear them totally out, before out growing them. They also, are just dressy enough that in our casual part of Maine they can wear them anywhere. Thank you, thank you Lands End for bringing them back.
