Additional Info

Leda pants, a cult favorite for the past fifteen years, are one of the first pieces of women-specific climbing clothes made. Modeled on, and named for, the favorite climbing pants of a beautiful girl Verve founder Christian Griffith met in a climbing gym, these pants are tough enough to stand up to sharp rock, flexible enough for morning yoga, and soft enough to curl up in. The simple design focuses on superior fit and has no pockets or side seams while the extra stretchy fabric guards the perfect shape of this pant even in heavy use.

A great blending of fit, function and fabric, the Verve Leda pant has become a timeless silhouette which ages uniformly and gracefully. This is crucial: as the Leda transcends seasonal styles, you'll find yourself loving and living in the Leda pant for a dozen years to come. In it, you'll find an intimacy of details, and an evocative awakening of emotions; it dovetails into what is important in your life and adds a kind of simplicity that makes sense.

Great multipurpose pant

I love these pants. I use them for workout which includes yoga, meditation, and general home comfort. Love the different colors and sizes, I am petite and find my size is pretty consistent so I can order and know they will fit they day I get them! Happiness!

The only pants I wear!

I've been wearing Verve Leda TALLS for as long as you have been making them!
They fit really well and are soooo comfortable for just about any purpose -- gym workouts, yoga, climbing, office or a night on the town.
Lately you haven't had many options for size or color in the TALLS -- please bring them back!

Great pants. Remove elastic band. Need them in petite length
June 7, 2016
I have lived in these pants (as well as the Verve Leda short) for many years and have recommended them to many. Two complaints: 1) They are too long. I always have to hem them, and 2) the elastic band is completely unnecessary. I always snip a small hole on the bottom INSIDE part of the waistband by the side seam and cut the elastic. They are much more comfortable and still perfectly snug at the waist. Fortunately, the designer doesn't sew the elastic into the waist seam, thank heavens.
durable, thick, comfortable, breathable, flattering in hips and belly, nice leg shape
too long. unnecessary elastic strip sewn into the waist panel. I always snip it out. Perfect.

I have been purchasing Verve Leda pants for 20+ years. I'm not a rock climber but I do go to the gym faithfully. My trainer in Santa Fe recommended Verve Leda pants from Vickerey many years ago and I still order from them and love using them. They fit well, move well and last forever!

The fit is correct and very comfortable to wear even on date night, or church. the color fades a several washings, but does not shrink in the dryer. Love these pants. Have about 10 pairs and can't get enough.
Fades in the wash after a few washes

Hardwearing and comfortable
April 17, 2015
I have been buying this product for many years and love the feel good fabric, the comfort and how it doesn't wear out. After 10 or so years I am still wearing my very first pair - now for gardening.
Comfort, organic nice feeling cotton fabric
Being only 5'1" I always have to take up the hems. Would be good to have a short version. Fading - but it does fade even

Definitely would re-order and am looking at the capri style. Love the fabric and how well it washes. Living in Denver, wish the freight would have been included due to spending over $50.
Locally made. Great product. Washes well. Comfortable.

Women's Verve Brand Story

MEET VERVE: Behind the Scenes Christian Griffith

At Vickerey, we've carried Verve clothing for over a decade. We love the classy and functional fit, the durable fabric, and the way it's still handsewn by local seamstresses. And, we love the eccentric, enigmatic man behind Verve: Christian Griffith, climber and designer extraordinaire. Join us for this two-part series that focuses on the man behind the brand, and the wonderful climbing, yoga, and lifestyle clothes he creates.

Read about Verve and founder Christian Griffith on our Blog - Part 1 and Part 2

"Outside my close circle of friends there was almost no way of knowing at a glance who shared not only my love of climbing, but also my way of being. This was the feeling that gave rise to the idea for Verve, the clothing company I started in 1988. Since then, I have tried very hard to stick to a few key values that have not only preserved the physical quality of Verve clothing, but hopefully as well, their fundamental role in helping the people that wear them find their own place in the world.", Christian Griffith

The Verve clothing company is not only committed to producing exceptional products, but to supporting grassroots, sustainable business practices. While outsourcing is commonplace in the apparel industry, Verve is keeping it local. They have a group of professional seamstresses who work from home, affectionately called the granny sewing force. Many of these seamstresses left their own countries because of war or its aftermath and made their way to the US years ago. Verve founder Christian Griffith says, "With changes in scale, priorities, and the economy, most of that manufacturing was moved overseas, leaving these highly skilled, dedicated women with little or no means to make a living." Flip over the care label to see the initials of the nice granny who poured her passion into your next pair of Leda pants.
