Merrell Meridian Trouser 2011

The Merrell Meridian Trousers weigh 396g (size L); Opti-wick (96% nylon + 4% elastane) two-way stretch fabric; belt loops; zipped thigh pocket; two OS map-sized pockets. But no ankle cuff adjustment; relatively wide and baggy fit compared to more technical trousers.
 

The Merrell Meridian is a good general walking trouser, but others offer more for mountain use.
