Craghoppers Kiwi Cargo & Kiwi Makino

£40.00

These are classic walking trousers that are well-proven winners on and off the fell. Made from polycotton, so they are fast-drying, lightweight and reasonably durable, the Kiwi Cargo is a more stylish version of the standard Kiwi. The women’s version is the Kiwi Makino, which has a lower waistline than most. You get loads of pockets including two map-sized hip ...

Craghoppers Kiwi Winter Lined

£40.00

These Craghoppers’ Kiwi Winter Lined pants offer a superb fit and a good length; the elasticated waist is backed up with a webbing belt. The fleecy lining is very soft and feels great against the skin. The Kiwis are basically a lined version of a year-round trouser and although they provide plenty of insulation and keep the wind out, they’re ...

Craghoppers Kiwi Winter Lined

£40.00

These winter trousers from Craghoppers are a superb fit for me and a good length. The elasticated waist, backed up with a webbing belt, is excellent. The fleecy lining is very soft and feels great against the skin. Basically a lined version of a normal walking trouser. They provide plenty of insulation and keep the wind out, but aren’t as ...

Nike ACG Cordillera Pant

£45.00

These winter trousers from Nike are made from a wonderfully stretchy soft shell fabric, but are on the big side. They do come with a belt, though. Not as warm as most in their class, so better suited to more energetic going. They keep water at bay well, though, and are really easy to move around in.   Colours: Olive, ...

Nike ACG Cordillera Pant

£45.00

These Nike ACG Cordillera Pants are made from a wonderfully stretchy soft shell fabric. Sadly they’re massive and don’t have belt loops – using only a basic drawcord at the waist.  They’re not as warm as others on the market so better suited to more energetic walking. They keep water at bay well though, and are incredibly easy to move ...

Marmot Invincible Pant

£50.00

This is an updated version of a walking trouser that I have been lounging about in since October 2003, when I reviewed the original design. The new version has a wider ankle cuff and generally cooler styling. The fabric is the same bombproof Ironwear N700 with Touch Dry finish, which has proved to be tougher than any jeans without losing ...

Sprayway Utility Pant

£60.00

These walking trousers use four-way stretch fabric making them really comfortable on the hill and this also allows a closer cut without restricting movement. The fabric feels nice and durable too, so these trousers should stay looking good for ages. The knees are articulated, but they still hang unobtrusively when lounging around. You get cord adjustment at the ankle cuff, ...

Sprayway Challenger

£60.00

The TecWeave Pro fabric is stretchy and very soft and repelled some of the heaviest rain you’ll ever walk in – well above the call of duty for soft shell pants. So easy to move in, too.VITAL STATSColour: BlackSizes: S-XXL (short/regular inside leg)Fabric: TecWeave Pro (nylon/elastane)Weight: 510gWomen’s version: YesContact: 0161 366 5020, www.sprayway.com

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.

Berghaus Cascade

£70.00

A lovely soft fabric with plenty of stretch and a soft, elasticated waist but no belt. Proved very weather-resistant, and were never too hot, due in no small part to the lovely long leg vents. The fabric was lovely to move in. Pockets are basic but do the job. VITAL STATSColour: BlackSizes: 30-38in waist, (30, 32 and 34in inside leg)Fabric: ...

Lowe Alpine Paradigm

£80.00

Plenty of stretch in the fabric, but the drawcord/elasticated waist isn’t as comfy or practical as the button designs of some. Great wind and water resistance makes them perfect for cooler weather or high mountain use, and the stretchy fabric allows easy movement. A good compromise warmth-wise.  VITAL STATSColours: Black, gunmetalSizes: 28-38in waist (31-35_in inside leg)Fabric: StormweaveWeight: 510gWomen’s version: YesContact: ...

The North Face Apex Trekking

£90.00

Extremely comfortable with a soft waist band, integral belt and zips and drawcords at the hem. The Apex fabric felt very breathable and did a great job of repelling rain, as well as being incredibly easy to move in. A tad heavy and quite pricey.  VITAL STATSColours: Black, asphaltSizes: 28-38in waist (three leg lengths)Fabric: Apex Universal (nylon/elastane)Weight: 570gWomen’s version: YesContact: ...

Haglöfs Ibex Q Pant

£95.00

A very comfortable, bombproof pair of women’s walking trousers. They are straightforward and get the job done well, with no fuss. The waist is tricot-lined for comfort and has the added adjustability of a belt. There is a good selection of usefully sized pockets (two hip, one back and one thigh). More importantly, they all have zipped closures to keep ...

Paramo Cascada

£100.00

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
