Haglöfs Rugged Mountain Pant (2013)

£140.00

The Haglöfs Rugged Mountain Pant is a well-established workhorse for backpackers and hillwalkers. The fabric is a tough and relatively heavy nylon canvas called Climatic and the seams are mostly triple-stitched, making this trouser ideal for taking a lot of abuse on the hills. There is no stretch in the main fabric, but tough stretch waterproof panels are fitted in ...

Fjällräven Abisko/Nikka 2013 (2013)

£135.00

Having the ability to increase the water resistance of a garment is very useful, and with the Fjällräven Abisko/Nikka you can tweak it as required. It is made from G1000, a polyester cotton mix that can be made more water-resistant by applying Greenland Wax (sold separately, or done for you at a Fjällräven ‘wax station’) to appropriate areas. In autumn ...

Mountain Equipment Trojan Pant (2013)

£130.00

Designed for Alpine mixed mountaineering, the Mountain Equipment Trojan Pant is equally at home in autumn weather on the British mountains. It is made from a thin Gore Windstopper soft shell fabric, which makes it more wind- and water-resistant than most, but in really wet weather you’ll still need your overtrousers. As it is so wind-resistant, it does feel a ...

Mountain Hardwear Sarpa Pant (2013)

£130.00

The Mountain Hardwear Sarpa Pant is a good, robust trouser that is made from a stretch fabric that isn’t as water- or wind-resistant as a ‘windstopper’ fabric. But the advantage of this fabric is that it’s far more breathable than a windstopper fabric, which makes it ideal for wearing under waterproof overtrousers and generally suitable for a wider range of ...

LoweOutdoor Research Cirque Pants (2013)

£110.00

Built to withstand chillier autumnal weather, the Cirque Pant is a highly wind-resistant (but not windproof) and water-resistant trouser with plenty of stretch and a robust feel to the fabric. There are loops for braces on the waist, though no stretch in the waist, but the brushed lining makes this comfier than most. There is a large crotch gusset and ...

Rohan Striders 2013 (2013)

£90.00

The Striders are a more robust trouser than most Rohan clothing, which tends to be designed more for relaxed country walks and travel. But the Striders are made from a soft-shell-style fabric with good four-way stretch and abrasion resistance while being very comfortable against the skin and great for autumn, winter and spring. The waist has belt loops, but no ...

Rab Torque Pant (2013)

£80.00

The Rab Torque Pant competes directly with Lowe Alpine’s Sirocco Pant, the main difference being that the Torque has a more athletic fit plus a drawcorded and elasticated waistband. So the cut on the legs is closer than the Sirocco’s, making this better for fast action, scrambling and mountaineering. The fabric is quite thin, though, so it’s slightly better for ...

Lowe Alpine Sirocco Pant 2013 (2013)

£80.00

Lowe Alpine clothing has been conspicuous by its absence in recent years, but the brand has a new collection hitting the stores this autumn. The Sirocco Pant is made from Stormweave fabric, which has four-way stretch and feels nice against the skin while being wind- and water-resistant, and durable enough to withstand rubbing your knees on rocks when scrambling. It’s ...
