These winter trousers from The North Face are a spot-on fit, soft against the skin and sufficiently casual to wear in the high street without looking too outdoorsy. They have belt loops, but no elastic in the waist. Very warm and quite heavy, they are best suited to very cold conditions. The DWR coating keeps rain at bay well, and the roomy cargo pocket is good.
Verdict: A very warm, well-featured, good-looking winter pant that is best suited to colder walks, or to those who really feel the cold. Quite heavy though.
Features: Rainproof DWR coating, belt loops, roomy cargo pocket
