These winter trousers from Rab are very baggy, but belt loops and elastic panels still make them wearable. The fleece lining is wonderfully soft, almost luxurious. Fantastic in cold weather and capable of coping with a bit of rain too – feeling warm even when they do wet out, as long as you keep moving. Very light and good breathability.
Verdict: A real full-on winter pant that starts to excel when the temperature really drops. Probably a bit too warm for average low-level walking, unless you really feel the cold.
Features: Fleece lining, elastic panels, belt loops
