Lafuma Cairn Pant

These are walking trousers that can cut it on the hill, but they manage to feature some cool styling as well. The fabric is nylon but the weave and softness give it more of a cotton look and feel than you might expect. Careful use of double lines of stitching maintains some style while providing articulated knees and a waist with side adjustment via Velcro tabs. There are two hip pockets that are map-sized as well as two zipped leg pockets and one zipped seat pocket. You get ankle adjustment thanks to a tucked-away drawcord ankle adjustment. These are comfortable and practical outdoor trousers that also look reasonably cool off the hill. These are also one of the lowest-priced trousers here, yet they appear better than the price would suggest. But you don’t get a diamond crotch, and the fabric is not stretchy, which means these are not the most comfortable option if freedom of movement is top of your requirements.
