Are you looking for a women’s climbing outfit, or climbing clothes for men?
At Glisshop, we offer a selection of clothes from dedicated brands. These brands, such as Black Diamond, Five Ten, La Sportiva or Snap, have developed technical garments answering the needs of rock climbers, for example by using stretch fabrics, while being trendy. You will find on this page, rock climbing T-shirts, shorts, and pants for women and men with which you will be able to climb inside and/or outside.
Sleeveless, short-sleeved or long-sleeved T-shirts? Shorts or pants?
The answers to these questions depend on personal preferences and the environment you climb in. A tank top may seem like the most suited to climbing as if offers optimum freedom of movement. However, a long-sleeved T-shirt has the triple advantage of protecting your skin against scratches, UV light when climbing under the sun in summer or protecting you from the cold if you are route climbing and the wind is chilly. You can of course find simple and lightweight tank tops made of cotton, perfectly suited to indoor climbing, but we also offer more technical clothes, like long-sleeved tee-shirts offering UV protection, while being breathable, lightweight and made of stretch fabric, with durable seams.
It is possible to consider the bottom of your outfit in the same way. Is it better to climb in shorts to be perfectly sure of your freedom of movement, exposing yourself to the risk to end the session with reddened or even bloody knees? Or is it not a good idea to invest in good climbing trousers, also made of stretch and durable fabric, to avoid scratching your skin while preserving total freedom of movement?
