I used these trousers extensively for about 3 months this (2016) summer.
First I did a few hikes wearing them in Manali. They were very comfortable and felt durable. So I took them on my 2 month hiking trip across the Spiti valley. I was very confident in their durability that I just took these 1 pair of trousers and nothing else. They were great during the first few weeks of the trip. But prolonged exposure to the sun seemed to have weakened the fabric greatly. After about 7 weeks, the pants started ripping near my crotch. I was doing a solo trek from Spiti to Kinnaur that time. I tired to patch the rip initially, but it kept getting bigger and bigger and towards the end of my trek it had a huge rip from my crotch all the way to my knees. Needless to say it was very embarrassing when I entered the village at the end of my trip :)
The most disappointing thing was Decathlons customer service. I sent them an email complaining about the trousers (with a few photos of the rip) but they never bothered replying. Really disappointed with Decathlon about this.

Had bought the beige one earlier that could be converted to shorts and loved it the only problem being the light colour. This was the obvious upgrade (wish it had the zippers to convert it into shorts though) The material is really nice, tough and comfortable. Use it for hikes, treks, biking etc. And the fact that its a dark colour helps avoid dirt (unlike the lighter beige one). Totally worth the amount

The fit is so great, the best part is at the knees. This is my first trousers with UV protection & i think i am already feeling the difference. For 1400 Rs i could have not asked for anything better than this. The fabric is great the colour is such, that it goes with most of the T shirts.
