Lightweight summer walking trousers with a flattering fit and soft, cool, nylon fabric that glides smoothly over the skin as you walk. There’s a decent amount of stretch in the fabric, so they’re very comfortable to walk in, and the articulated knees add to the easy movement too. The waistband has a soft fleece inner fabric which feels great against the skin, and they come with a belt so you can get a nice comfy fit. Clean-cut and simple, these are a great choice for summer walking or days spent travelling. They won’t wet-out in a shower as the fabric is DWR-treated, and with UPF 50+ they offer great protection from the sun in hot weather. Not tough or warm enough for year-round use, but very comfortable in warm weather.
