Millet Gokyo Peak 2009

Millet Gokyo Peak trousers are brilliant value for money; very stretchy Shoeller soft shell fabric pant; very light (349g, size 12); comfy brushed waist; 2 side mesh vented pockets; good wide-cut thigh. But very strange mesh pocket at the side of the right knee; difficult to shut without 2 hands; could do with larger grip pulls for gloved hands; no way of pulling in the trouser at the ankles; annoying front mid-thigh stitched seam.

Verdict: Millet Gokyo Peaks are great-value, lightweight pants for all-season walking.
