These women’s walking trousers have two-way stretch fabric; press stud fly, tricot-lined waist with Velcro tab adjustment; partially articulated knee; good price; two hip pockets, one of which contains another hidden zipped pocket; one zipped thigh pocket. But there is no adjustment at the waist apart from Velcro; no ankle cuff adjustment; no venting; fit at the crotch in particular was rather odd.

Verdict: Buy it if you are starting out on your hill-walking career and want a basic trouser that doesn’t cost the earth.
