These winter trousers from Montane are slightly baggy and long, but otherwise wonderfully comfortable with a very soft fleece/mesh lining. A perfect belt/elastic waist combo gives them the comfort edge over most. Leg zips provide venting and easy entry and the Tactel nylon outer fabric repels wind and light rain.

Verdict: Full-on winter walking pants that offer plenty of warmth and weather resistance, yet breathe and vent well, too. Wonderfully soft and comfy to wear and reasonably stylish for outdoor trousers.
