It is great in terms of comfort and fit. I like to wear all the time. I have used many products, but neither of them is as comfortable as it. But there are some disappointments
1) whenever I wash, color is coming out
2) the belt is of no use, it never keep tight
3) only one color is available. Decathlo India should provide some more color, as it is available in other countries
06 November 2016That review has been deposited on this product versionMaterial cannot be trusted for even normal use
I used it for 2..3 times and there was a puncture in (small tiny hole) it. I believe it's due to the material defect in that area due to which puncture occurred, and as I know that it was not used that roughly. When I took it to Pune decathlon store for replacement, the manager said it is because it caught some where due to which small tiny hole save occured. I still cannot digest that it was because of material caught some where as it's relatively tight fit .I have been using such panst since 2013 which I bought in Bangalore they have not developed any defect and are still going on great due to which I bought this pant, however this pant which I purchased this year made me lose my faith in quality of products decathlon sells and the after sell service they provide. Really sad. Would not suggest this to any one in my personal and corporate circle
.Brand's answer :
Thanks for your review on the Forclaz 500 Hiking Trousers. I am sorry to hear that you got a puncture in the fabric.
The 2013 trousers that you mentioned had a ripstop fabric that made them more resistant but slightly heavier and less stretchy therefore the new trousers came in and replaced the older model. The new Forclaz 500 trouseres are lighter, much more stretchy and comfortable but little less tougher as the previous one. For users who seek trousers for rugged use, we will be introducing soon the Forclaz 900 with a heavy duty fabric and water repellent finish along with stretch.
In the meantime, thanks to our customer satisfaction policy, you can return the product for an exchange or refund to your nearest decathlon store.
All Decathlon products come with a minimum warranty of 2 years against manufacturing faults and defects, therefore punctures or holes due to external objects are not covered in warranty.
I am at your disposal should you require any assistance.
Many thanks and regards,

I used it for 3 months recently on a Himalayan Journey. They were quite comfortable but tore off from a few places around the ankle and back. The material is not satisfactory for this price.Brand's answer :
Thanks for sharing your feedback about the Forclaz 500 hiking trousers. I am sorry to know that the trousers tore off around ankle and back.
Like all other products from decathlon these trousers come with a minimum warranty of 2 years on manufacturing fault and defects therefore you can take the trousers to your nearest Decathlon store and get it exchanged should the tearing has happened because of any defect.
These pant feature a lighter and stretchy polyamide+elastane blend for greater freedom of movement and faster drying.
But if it is abrasion that has caused the tear and your needs require a more hard wearing fabric then I suggest you look at the Simond Alpinism pants. These pants are made of heavy duty softshell material, come with side vents, built-in removable gaiter and suspenders. They are also water repellent and wind resistant. I own these pants and absolutely love them.
I am available in case of any doubts.
Thanks and Regards,

21 August 2016Use since More than 1 yearI recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionpurchase confirmedFantastic outdoor trousersfit, style, pockets, technical abilities, price none
Forget your expensive brands at 2 to 3 times the price. these trousers are of equivalent quality. i found the an excellent fit with pockets and zips in all the right places. the material is good in hot environments as well as cold wet Scottish hills. You can wash in a hotel sink and they will be dry overnight. Ive worn Rab, Northface, Hagloff and Craghopper trousers but none match pound for pound with these.
30 July 2016I recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionpurchase confirmedmens forclaz trousersvery well made lot that lightweight about average weight
i bought these as in the forums on outdoorsmagic quite a few people rated them as very good walking trousers,that dry very quickly as i dont wear waterproofs . i am really pleased with these trousers they do not need turning up as they have a cord you pull to adjust the trouser bottoms and they were a good price i will be buying more of these there great 3 season trousers
26 July 2016Use since 2 to 8 weeksI recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionGreat multi-use trousers
For outdoor use I found these trousers comfortable; they're lightweight, dry quickly and don't stick to you when wet. They're also great for long flights as they don't feel tight (loose fit and the material stretches slightly) and have a plastic belt buckle (no need to remove for security). They have 4 zippable pockets and can be tightened around the ankles.
