The North Face Apex Trekking Pant

These women’s walking trousers have an elasticated, comfy, lined waist with belt; press stud fly, three zipped pockets – two hip and one thigh; comfortable two-way stretch fabric and articulated knees; drawcord ankle cuff adjustment and zip ventilation. But the ankle cuff is fussy (there’s a drawcord, a zip and press stud); if for ventilation it could have been located better, or if as adjustment one form would have been adequate; the press stud for the fly is bulky and uncomfortable at the waist.

Verdict: Buy it if you like your features and want loads of waist adjustment, all blended together with a comfortable fabric.
