Cut quite loose to fit over bulky walking trousers, the Aristas also have articulated knees. The ankles are tapered, with a Velcro flap to adjust the way they fit over the boot. There’s a soft fleece lining on the waistband which feels great against the skin, and is especially welcome for cold fingers when you’re pulling them on in a hurry. Out in the hills they perform superbly, and the fabric keeps water out and breathes well too. Knee-high leg-zips mean you can get them on and off fairly easily. An excellent all-rounder that is lightweight enough to carry in your pack for emergency use only, but comfortable and durable enough for regular use or wearing all day. A top-quality waterproof trouser with a price tag to match.
