Mountain Hardwear Mesa Pant

Made from a lovely, soft, lightweight fabric that is best-suited to warm conditions. The cut is loose, with a baggy, straight-cut leg and a waistband that sits comfortably on the hips. The fabric proved wonderfully breathable, with a good DWR coating to keep them dry. The fabric also has a fast drying time. As a walking trouser, they are let down by a baggy hem – there is an elastic cinch cord at the bottom of each leg, but this still leaves them quite billowy.
