These Lowe Alpine Paradgm Pants are soft shell trousers, roomy enough to move freely in, yet snug enough to keep you warm with very good breathability. The soft inner fabric feels great against your skin and is stretchy enough to allow for even the most strenuous movement. Combined with light weight, this means you hardly notice you’re wearing them. The waist is elasticated with a drawcord. They offer enough breathability to keep you dry and comfy on even the mildest days, and offer plenty of wind resistance. They do an excellent job of keeping drizzle and low cloud at bay, only succumbing when it really tips down. They’re also a little more stylish and pub-friendly than many others on the market.
Verdict: Lightweight, weather-resistant soft shell trousers that are a pleasure to wear in all but the mildest winter conditions. Best suited to higher ground, but not too full-on for moderate going, if you don’t mind the ‘technical’ looks.
