Full of useful features allowing you to adapt them to suit the terrain and climate. At only 208g they are light weight, fast drying and the fabric is soft next to your skin. The regular leg length was longer than I expected which worked well over walking boots. This could be adjusted with a button fastening shortening them to ¾ length for hot days. There are useful studs in the ankle hems to make them narrower, which is great if you want to reduce the likelihood of debris getting in your boots. There are two comfortable hand pockets plus extra security pockets inside them, which are handy for small, flat items. The rear pocket was the largest and managed a smart phone. The overall fit was snug. The elasticated waist band and fabric around the hips and seat were a little restrictive at times.
► Verdict: A snug fit with some nice features.
► Best for: Trekking on changing terrain in warmer climates.
