Mountain Hardware Mesa Pant (2012)

A midweight, breathable pant cut from a soft, comfy nylon fabric that offers decent rain resistance and dries very quickly. The design is more casual than technical, with open-topped hip pockets, Velcro-fastened rear pockets and a single zip-access leg pocket that’s not really big enough for a map or guidebook. The ankles are plain but snug enough not to flap and they come in three leg lengths so it should be easy to get a good fit. The waist has a soft lining and no elastic, but the webbing belt supplied makes for easy adjustment. The fabric has no stretch at all, which may put some off, but the fit is pretty generous so movement shouldn’t be restricted.
