These winter trousers from Nike are made from a wonderfully stretchy soft shell fabric, but are on the big side. They do come with a belt, though. Not as warm as most in their class, so better suited to more energetic going. They keep water at bay well, though, and are really easy to move around in.
Colours: Olive, Madeira, black, neutral grey

Verdict: A modern-looking, weather-resistant and very breathable soft shell pant that will work well for strenuous winter walking, but check the fit before buying. Great value at just £45.
