Rab Vapour Rise Trail Pants

These warm trousers from Rab are light and soft against the skin – you’ll almost forgot you’re wearing them! The elasticated waist, which is backed up with belt loops, is great, but they are a little baggy. Warm trousers that will keep a short shower or a bit of drizzle at bay and remain comfortable even when they do wet out. Could do with some venting to expand their temperature range.

Verdict: Cosy and comfortable and perfect for walking in really cold weather, where they’ll even withstand a little precipitation. A bit too ‘outdoorsy’ for casual use, but still great value.
