Regatta Geo Extol Trousers (2012)

A great choice for UK hillwalkers. The slimline fit looks great both on and off the hill, and the really stretchy fabric is great for energetic walking. Definitely worth a look if you’re petite as they’re available in a shorter-than-most leg length at only 27in. The fabric feels tough and durable, and they’ve got reinforced panels on the knees. Noticeably, the fabric doesn’t breathe particularly well so they feel quite hot and sticky in very warm weather, but they do offer a decent amount of wind protection. They wet out pretty quickly but thankfully they dry quickly too.
