Regatta Geo III Zip-Off

£30.00

These zip-off trousers from Regatta were comfy to wear and had a good elastic waistband, although the legs are a little short. They have quite a relaxed cut, which is a little loose, but the soft, lightweight fabric is excellent. The Geos are great to walk in, with plenty of useful pockets. The fabric is fairly water-resistant and quick drying, ...

Craghoppers Classic Kiwi Zip-Offs

£40.00

Quite a traditional fit with a high waist and wide hips, the Kiwi comes with belt loops and a part-elasticated waist for comfort. The polycotton fabric is soft, yet tough and hard-wearing, repelled water well and offered lots of wind resistance. They took longer than some to dry, though. There is a huge array of pockets, including a large cargo ...

These walking trousers from Rohan don’t have an elasticated waist or a belt., but they do have easily adjustable leg-lengths. The poly/cotton fabric feels comfy on the skin and they are easy to move in. Windproof, durable and amazingly rain-resistant, the Bags are ideal year-round trousers, especially if you prefer plain styles to zip-offs. Good choice of pockets, with room ...

Berghaus Statis Pant

£50.00

These are wonderfully comfortable trousers cut from a fabric that feels soft against the skin yet stretches enough to allow easy movement. The waist is part-elasticated with a webbing belt, so a good fit is easy to achieve, although the legs are quite loose. Out in the hills, the Statis is a natural all-rounder; the cordura fabric proved warm enough ...

Mountain Hardwear Mesa Convertible Pant 2010

£55.00

My favourite convertible trousers are the now discontinued Mountain Hardwear Convertible Pack Pant. The new Mountain Hardwear Mesa Convertible Pant does retain one feature from these old classics, though – the smooth micro-chamois waist lining, which makes the waist area extremely comfortable under a pack hipbelt. The Mesa also has an elasticated waist with an integrated belt, which is ideal ...

Rab Treklite Pant

£60.00

The Treklite is exceptionally comfortable, thanks to its lightweight, stretchy fabric that feels good against the skin and their well-shaped articulated knees. They come with an integral belt and stretch waist so you can be sure of a comfortable fit, but they only come in one leg length for each size, which may put some off. The fabric feels cool ...

The fabric is laced with elastane to give extra stretch and there’s a micro-chamois area around the waist for comfort. They feel almost creepily perfect, but perform exceptionally well outdoors.

Marmot Scree 2009

£60.00

The price of these Scree trousers is great. Marmot’s best-selling soft shell pants are very stretchy, light (411g) and arguably serve as well on UK and Alpine walks, scrambles and climbs as the TNF and ME equivalents at £30-40 more. Having said this, Marmot uses its most breathable soft shell material –for high aerobic use in mild conditions – so ...

£60.00

Millet Gokyo Peak trousers are brilliant value for money; very stretchy Shoeller soft shell fabric pant; very light (349g, size 12); comfy brushed waist; 2 side mesh vented pockets; good wide-cut thigh. But very strange mesh pocket at the side of the right knee; difficult to shut without 2 hands; could do with larger grip pulls for gloved hands; no ...

Montane Terra Thermic

£65.00

These Montane Terra Thermic pants are slightly baggy and long, but otherwise wonderfully comfortable with a very soft fleece/mesh lining. A perfect belt/ elastic waist combination gives them a comfortable finish. Good breathability and all-round versatility. Leg zips provide venting and easy entry while the Tactel nylon outer fabric repels wind, drizzle and light rain well.

Sprayway All Day Rain Pant

£70.00

These winter trousers from Sprayway are a little on the big side, but an elasticated waist and belt loops help get a fairly decent fit. The waterproof lining feels surprisingly comfy against the skin, and the stretch fabric aids movement. A bit baggy in the legs. Although they look and feel like a traditional pair of walking trousers, they are ...

Berghaus Ortler Pants

£70.00

The Ortlers perform like a soft shell in terms of water resistance, breathability and stretch, yet they are casual enough to wear in the pub. The fit is perhaps a tiny bit loose, which is a shame as with so much stretch in the fabric, ease of movement wouldn’t suffer if they were tighter. But the waist has elastic panels ...

Berghaus Himal Mountain 2009

£70.00

Berghaus Himal Mountains are tough, durable, stretchy trousers and they’re another good, low-priced option for beginner walkers on a budget and mountaineers who need a heavy-duty, long-lasting trouser for all-season use. They are also cut quite wide on the leg, which makes them great for women with normal, pear-shaped bodies. Berghaus uses a robust yet stretchy double-weave fabric that transports ...

Jack Wolfskin Hoggar Nanotex Pants

£70.00

The Hoggar is cut from a nanotex fabric that felt lovely and soft against the skin, more like cotton than the nylon it is made from; and with elasticated panels in the waist and a webbing belt. The more conventional, casual looks of these trousers will suit more conservative walkers, yet they still cut the mustard on a walk, providing ...

Paramo Cascada

£100.00

These Paramo Cascada pants are incredibly comfortable against the skin, but may be too long and too baggy – meaning mud quickly works its way up the insides of the legs. There’s only a basic drawcord adjuster at the waist. These are effectively waterproof trousers however, with the breathability of normal pants, so they’re superb in bad weather. They’re too ...

Paramo Cascada

£100.00

These winter trousers from Paramo are a little long and baggy, but are incredibly comfortable next to the skin and lovely to move around in. A belt would be better than the drawcord adjuster, though. Not only really warm, but waterproof too, so they offer superb protection in bad weather. A little toasty for milder winter days perhaps, and not ...

The Analogy fabric felt wonderfully soft and comfortable against the skin, but not as stretchy as some and the drawcord waist was fiddly. Good waterproofing and breathable, too. But quite hot, even with the leg zips open, and also quite heavy and not as easy to move in as some.VITAL STATSColours: Navy, dark grey, forestSizes: S-XXL (five leg lengths)Fabric: Nikwax ...

Berghaus Nimbus Pant

The Nimbus pretty much ticks all the boxes when it comes to desirable features for a performance hill and mountain walking trouser. The waist caters for every eventuality in terms of weight gain or loss. The waist is also elasticated and has a belt for good measure. They have a tricot-lined waistband for extra comfort, which softens the elastic waist ...
