Lightweight, comfortable and and cheap too! The TecWeave fabric is very soft and feels great against the skin, stretching really easily with movement. The fit is slimline, with narrow, drawcord-adjustable ankles to prevent them flapping in the breeze and getting muddy. They breathe well and wick sweat away quickly, and there’s a DWR finish to repel water. A really comfortable part-elastic, fleece-lined waistband feels wonderful against the skin, and there are four zipped pockets which are really useful for valuables. On the downside, the fabric is very thin and isn’t windproof so won’t offer much protection on cold windy days.
Men’s version: Yes (Compass Pant)
