Review The single-handed locking drawcord waist, which combines with elasticated panels for a great fit. The polyamide fabric feels good but the lower legs are ‘flappy’. Made from one of the lighter fabrics, which reduces their versatility, but the zip-off legs will be useful in summer. They keep the wind out well and dry quickly.
Colours: Moonlight blue, dust
Fabric: 100% polyamide
Main features: Zip-off legs, drawcord waist, two hand pockets (one with hidden security pocket), two zipped rear pockets (one doubles as pack pocket)
Women’s version: Yes

Verdict: Well-featured, nicely-cut trousers that are best-suited to walking in the milder months, or even travelling. Quite expensive, but will double as shorts.
