I discovered Ronhills when I started rock climbing about twenty years ago and
I thought they were great. Twenty years later (and no more climbing) I still think
they're great. I have worn them for years as a cyclist; they dont chafe, they fit the
shape of your legs (large thighs here) and they dry very quickly when you've been
soaked in a downpour.
Most of my worn out Ronhills, wore out at the top of the inner thigh -presumably
from abrasion against the saddle- but because I wear cycle shorts underneath, it
was more an aesthetic decision to retire them, rather than a functional choice.
Most of my retired Ronhills (usually referred to as Rod Hulls) have been promoted
to painting and decorating, car / bike maintenance or gardening clothing; I've put
just one pair in the bin because they caught fire ... and even then, binning them
was a struggle.
