Great trousers

Bought these after getting the shorts version. They are great, some elasticity in fabric, plenty of freedom of movement. Fit me well as I have large hips and narrow waist - the belt adjustable for waist. Good pockets. Wish there was a pull cord round ankle as mens have, to tighten (I'm 5'2" so bit long as everything always is). Quick drying. Really pleased I found these.

Good value

Comfortable and true to size. Stretch fabric makes them comfortable to wear and they seem to repel dirt and moisture. Look like a more expensive item than they are. Well made and so far they seem durable. Easy wash and quick to dry. Great for travel, hiking, gardening or working.

Solid walking trousers

Excellent bits: - the pockets are awesome - fabric is stretchy and key areas are reinforced Good bits: - pretty quick drying - decent belt - good length Not so good bits : - crotch/waist sit a bit low (I had to go for a size up from my waist size to get them to fit) - they get a bit sweaty as there’s no vents for air - no way to secure the bottom of the trouser leg to your boot Overall a good pair of trousers that could be really improved by a small vent and a lower crotch / better fitting hips area

Hello Linda,

Thank you for taking the time to post your review.

Have a good day, 

great trousers

very good fit , very comfortable, not too wide in the leg as with some other makes, I've only worn them in dry weather so cant comment on the water resistance. A good buy for the money.

Size runs small

My usual UK 10 is slightly snug so had to size up. However UK 12 is too loose so I have to cinch in the belt which is not so flattering. Nonetheless I'd rather have slightly loose trousers than tight trousers during a hike. The fit is still okay , slightly loose but not baggy. Can't comment on durability, time will tell.

Skvělé (nejen) sportovní kalhoty

Doporučuji, jsou opravdu velmi příjemné na nošení, skvělé pro jakýkoliv pohyb, praktické uzavíratelné kapsy,...nenašla jsem žádnou negativní vlastnost. A abych nezapomněla - jsou velmi pěkné a vkusné.

Splnily očekávání

Využila jsem doprodeje béžové barvy, které jsem se napřed trochu obávala. Působí ale velmi dobře, materiál je pohodlný a prodyšný, kalhoty jsou kvalitně zpracované. V dešti jsem je ještě neměla možnost ozkoušet.

maximálně spokojení

Additional Product Information


Main fabric

  • 6% Spandex
  • 94% Polyamide


  • 12% Spandex
  • 88% Polyamide


  • 100% Polyester cationic


  • 100% Polyester cationic

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 slows down water ingress and prevents the pants from getting wet too fast 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 a v2 (version 2) of our iconic trek 500 pants?

The Trek 500 pants have been improved. The aim is first to reduce the environmental impact of our pants (see details below) Then, customer feedback enabled us to improve features. 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?

To reduce our environmental impact, we used a more environmentally-friendly dyeing process for the fabric reinforcements on the pants. We use mass pigmentation (known as "Dope dyeing) of the thread, adding pigments in granular form, when the thread is manufactured. Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. This process enables us to reduce CO2 emissions by 12%


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

Hand pocket opening:

We have deliberately placed the zipper closing of the hand pockets 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 S Width 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. - and a lightweight and 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-life 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.
