    Ideal for any situation

    Used these for hikes and pretty much any sport activity when there are no changing rooms available. And by that I mean I'll wear shorts underneath. These trousers are nice and thin and stretchy. Very easy to convert to shorts by unzipped the "legs".

    Great Trouses

    Light weight, hard wearing and slightly elasticated. Bought 2 pairs for a hiking holiday in the lake district last August, and wore them almost everyday for the 2 weeks. Great that they can be turned into shorts too, and very comfortable. zips on pockets ensure all your personal items stay safe.

    Bought a 3rd pair before an adventure weekend away in March and the water resistance helped with the muddy wet activities. Wash well and dry quickly

    Forclaz 500
    Fit, comfort and price. None so far.

    Bought these as a cheaper alternative to montane terra pants. Haven't used them in anger yet, but so far can't fault them. Comfortable to wear and a great fit, the fabric stretches really well and dosen't hinder movement, plenty of zip pockets for storage. I'll add move info once I've done Snowden in them.
