The stretchy soft shell fabric was soft against the skin and a delight to move in, but the legs were a little baggy and, although the waist was comfy, we’d have liked to have seen a belt. Not heavily insulated and, therefore, not the warmest in winter conditions, but performed better in milder weather. Weather resistance was okay.

Verdict: Lovely light soft shell pants that will work pretty much all the year round. Fine in drizzle and light showers, but not as weather-resistant as some.
