These winter trousers from Lowe Alpine fit well – they’re roomy enough to move freely in, yet snug enough to keep you warm with good breathability. Lightweight, with lovely soft inner fabric, but a belt would be better than the drawcord adjuster. They’re never found wanting for warmth and don’t feel clammy, keeping you dry and comfortable on even the mildest days. Keeps wind and drizzle at bay well.
Sizes: 71-96.5cm waist
Fabric: Stormweave stretch nylon

Verdict: Lightweight, weather-resistant and great to wear in all but the mildest winter conditions. Best suited to higher ground, but not too full-on for easier going, if you don’t mind the ‘technical’ looks.
