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.
Sizes: 30-38in waist, (30, 32 and 34in inside leg)
Fabric: Mistral soft shell
Women’s version: Yes

Verdict: Really nice, fairly priced soft shell trousers that performed well in a variety of conditions. Would have scored better with a belt. Double-check the sizing.
