Helly Hansen Odin Guide Pant 2011

The Helly Hansen Odin Guide Pant weighs 550g (size L); four-way stretch nylon/elastane soft shell fabric; outstanding fit and comfort; internal gaiter; zipped ankle gusset plus internal drawcord; zipped pockets at thigh, hip (2), seat; articulated knees; abrasion reinforcement on ankle cuff. But pricy, and you’ll still need waterproof overtrousers; pockets are relatively small.

Helly Hansen’s Odin Guide Pants are outstanding mountaineering trousers, but walkers may not need the performance; and in summer they’ll be too warm.
