So comfy and stretchy

These are my new favourite trekking trousers. Great stretch and fit, as long as you have good undies on. Possibly a little revealing, and can't yet comment on how waterproof they are but will certainly be buying another pair.

Very good

I am a 3XL person and trousers fit perfectly. These are thin but worm on my early morning dog walks and waterproof (not tested in heavy rain) and dry quickly. Durable and seams to be very strong. Multiple zipper pockets which I find very useful. I can 100% highly recommend this item.

Walking trousers

The quality and price of the trousers are excellent and highly recommended. I do have large quads so they are a snug fit round the thighs.

Very versatile

Ideal for the British climate - warm enough for our summer and dry very quickly when it rains. To be honest I wear these pretty much all the time for 3/4 of the year, both for activities and just day-to-day use.

Additional Product Information


Main fabric

  • 100% Polyamide


  • 12% Spandex
  • 88% Polyamide


  • 100% Polyester cationic
  • 85% Polyamide

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 slightly stretchy, offering great freedom of movement - and a light and breathable fabric (4.4 oz/m²) on the rest of the pants.


2 zipped hand pockets 1 zipped pocket at the right thigh with 1 smartphone compartment inside. 1 flap pocket on the left thigh 1 zipped back pocket Elastic tightening system at the bottom of the leg for a perfect fit of the pants on the boot. Pants sold with a belt

What is the water-repellent property of the component?

These pants have water-repellent inserts (front of ankle, seat) that let the water slide off the fabric's surface. Please note that this does not mean waterproof. The water-repellent property prevents the pants from getting wet too fast but will not keep you dry under steady rain. For this, we recommend that you wear overpants such as the MT500 (ref. 8493660). Water-repellent properties can be reactivated by tumble drying the pants for 10 minutes on low temperature.

Sizing information

Regular cut and use of stretch fabric in the right areas guarantees high comfort levels when moving around. Choose your usual size. Inside leg 33" in size M Width of pant hem: 8.4" in size M

Eco-design: what improvements have we made?

Not only does textile dyeing require a lot of water, but it also discharges waste water from the dye baths. To reduce our environmental impact, we used a mass pigmentation process called “dope dyeing” on the black pants. This process incorporates the color pigments from the initial thread manufacture to reduce water consumption. In this way, we can reduce the carbon emissions associated with the manufacturing of the pants by 30%

Determining the environmental impact of our products

The environmental impact of the product is calculated based on its entire lifecycle and using different indicators. A general score from A to E is provided to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, pants, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to displaying this environmental information. For more info:



Product testing

These pants have been field-tested in real conditions. They were worn for 5 weeks by several testers independent from Decathlon who undertook the Grande Traversée des Alpes (GTA) in late spring 2017.
