My daughters and I...

My daughters and I each bought pants of this model for our week of hiking in Scotland: soft and water-repellent, I recommend!

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase

Well-tailored pants, except that it would have been appreciated to have a length L28 because only L31 is available so a hem was necessary.

Additional Product Information


Main fabric: 94.0% Polyamide, 6.0% Elastane ; Yoke: 88.0% Polyamide, 12.0% Elastane ; Lining: 100.0% Polyester ; [EN] Pocket lining: 100.0% Polyester

What is the water-repellent property of the component?

These pants have water-repellent areas (shins, seat) that prevent water from entering the fabric. Please note that this does not mean waterproof.The water-repellent property prevents the pants from getting wet too fast and slows down the water ingress but will not keep you dry under steady rain. To do this, we recommend to wear overpants, ref 8504646.Water-repellency can be reactivated by tumble drying the pants for 10 min on low temperature

Why v2 (version 2) of our iconic trek 500 pants?

The Trek 500 pants have been improved.The objective is first of all to reduce the environmental impact of our pants (see details below)Then, your feedback has helped us improve the functionality. Thanks for sharing! - switching of left and right pockets for better smartphone carrying- use of more durable Coats thread for assemblies- double stitching on the back of the crotch for better durability

Eco-design: which improvements have we made?

The dyeing of the components requires a lot of water and also produces waste water. To reduce this environmental impact, we used for the fabric of the reinforcements of our black pants, a process of mass dyeing called ”dope dyed,” which integrates the color pigments during the manufacture of the yarn and avoids dye baths.This process allows us to reduce the CO2 emissions of the pants by 12%.


2 hand pockets that zip downward.1 zipped right thigh pocket1 left thigh pocket with flap and 1 inner smartphone compartment.Supplied with a belt.

Hand pocket opening:

We have deliberately designed the sealing direction of the hand pockets as downward.The zipper pull will not get in your way when you tighten your backpack's waistband and your belongings will remain safe in your pockets!

Which size should you choose?

Fitted cut and use of stretch fabric in the right areas guarantees high comfort levels when moving around.Choose your usual size.Inside leg length of 31.9” in size SWidth at the bottom of the pants: 7.8” in size S.

Hybrid structure

Pants designed with 2 different components:- a durable fabric (7.3 oz/m²) on areas that need protection from rubbing (seat, bottom of the leg at the front). This fabric is also stretchy, enabling great freedom of movement. It has a water-repellent treatment.- a lightweight, breathable fabric (5.3 oz/m²) on the rest of the pants.

Product testing

These pants have been tested and validated in the field in real conditions. They were worn for 5 weeks by several people who undertook the Grande Traversée des Alpes (GTA) in late spring 2017. The V2 (version 2) of the Trek 500 pants, that include improvements made on the product, was tested in summer 2020 in the Northern Alps. These tests enabled us to validate the product in use.
