Loving these!

I seldom write reviews. The pants make me so happy I'm compelled to write. Never have I owned lined pants that fit, looked, and felt so good. They're used in New England wx for daily walking no matter temps, aprex ski in NH & VT, and their toughest challenge; watching college baseball in March in New England sitting stationary for over 3 hours in the 30's, with wind, cold, mud, and even snow. I'm the only parent without a blanket on them. They feel like butter on your skin. Never have I worn a pant that felt so good and protected so well that I welcome the cold. The complaints about them in other reviews are noted but are not such that it should deter anyone from trying these.

Excellent Fit

Ordered size 33/33. I'm 6ft tall and weigh 165 lbs. Tall and lean. Normally, I wear 31 or 32" waist and 32" length, so I'm glad other reviews advised to order a size up. These fit me perfectly and I can't wait to wear them this winter. They look great.


Great product

Warm pants but tear easily

These pants a great for snowshoeing and winter hiking. They are warm and flexible for taking big, high steps. All the pockets are zipped and meshed lined so you can use the as vents when you are working hard (I would avoid putting keys in the pockets in case they tear). The only problem I have with the pants is that they tear easily if you are hiking in overgrown areas and the material is not rip-stop so when it snags it tears about 2” (they tore on their second use which is disappointing) it would be great if future designs reinforced the panels below the knees and calf areas. Also offering the plants in a shorter length would also reduce the bagging and tearing. The only other thing that is good to know is the sizing runs small so size up, especially if you plan on wearing a base layer. The pants come with a belt with very thin webbing that folds/twists and digs into your waste over time so get a good belt too.

Hello Andrew,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are sorry the pant is not as expected and teared down after your second use. This pant does not have reinforced panels, however tests are conducted to measure the resistance to rubbing, and it should survive an occasional use.

Do not hesitate to bring your pant back to your local store so our teammates can take a look, and eventually offer a solution. If it's an online order, you can also send a few pictures to our customer service.

Rest assured our product's manager read your reviews and they will do their best to improve this product for next seasons.

Good and reliable material.

Perfect as long as your legs are 33in long

Ordered online, seems good quality but bizarre sizing. I'm 32in waist and 33in that I received were very tight. Tried to exchange in store but all trousers had leg length of 33 or 34in or longer, whether it's a 29in or 42in waist. So if you're taller or shorter than that try something else. I'd recommend ordering a bit bigger unless you like a tight fit or trying them on in store.

Expecting more warmer but it's ok.

I was expecting more warmer but its ok to wear .

Arrived defected

Left pocket had a tear at the seam, a big hole in the pocket. Very disappointed with the quality and service as i would have thought all items would be checked before posting out. Wouldn't order again.

Great trousers but…..just too short!!!

I’m 6 foot 1 inch tall, so not unusually so and require a long leg in trousers. Unfortunately the 34 inch leg, like many trousers that I’ve tried is about 1-1.5 inches too short. It’s a real shame as the material, the fit on my waist and everything else was ideal.

Great trousers but limited sizes

These trousers are really good for the price, they're warm, comfy and have pockets in all the right places. My only gripe with them is the length, would be good if they were available with a 32" leg rather than 34". Just have to deal with them being a bit bunched up at the bottom!

Frustrating sizes

If your tall but not overweight no sizes for you


Quite surprised by these at this price point, took them on a 10 day tour of Scotland, had a constant drizzle up Ben Nevis, nothing came through, Old Man of Store, again drizzly and nothing came through, only time they let any water through was a during heavy rain when visiting the fairy pools, they only claim to be shower resistant and only started to let water through on the last leg up to the car park in some horrid rain. They were comfy enough to wear all day and had a good fit.

Great fit

I am very pleased with these trousers. So many walking trousers are baggy shapeless tents and I have searched high and low for a pair that can be described as “slim fit.” I am a skinny bloke and these perfectly. My other half says they look great from behind. Everyone’s happy!

warm but not at all waterproof

These run large but have a belt so can be adjusted. I just walked in heavy rain and got completely soaked through, so would not advise them for wet winter walking. The womens' version has an inferior, different side pocket (it is oblique so has to be kept zipped or stuff falls out) to the men's, which has a more useful, larger zipped side pocket. They wash and dry well.

Can i be sure that my pants are warm enough for my winter hikes?

The inside of your pants is brushed – a tried and tested method for retaining heat. The principle is simple: the component weave is structured to add volume to trap air, naturally insulating. It is exactly the same principle as animal fur or feathers.

Comfortable and practical snow hiking pants.

With their close fit and stretch component, your pants encourage freedom of movement, essential when walking in the snow. The zipped pockets secure everything you need to hand (tissues, lip balm, keys, etc).

What is water-repellency and how can you maintain it?

The water-repellency of a fabric is its ability to let the water slide off its surface, without absorbing it. In this way, the fabric does not soak up water and therefore remains lightweight, breathable and warm. Water-repellency is obtained by a treatment applied on the outer surface of the fabric. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment (we recommend each wash). Products (sprays and liquids) are available in our stores.

How do my pants protect me from outdoor conditions?

In the winter, you need to be protected both from the damp (snow, rain) and wind, as the latter cools the body down a lot, both when exercising and resting. We designed your pants with a windproof and water-repellent outer fabric, to cope with all winter conditions. We have also added lace hooks to protect you from snow ingress.

How should i dress when hiking on the snow?

To dress correctly in the winter, no matter what your activity is, we recommend that you apply the 3 layer principle: layer 1: The technical base layer will enable damp to be wicked away to keep skin dry. layer 2: The second layer (fleece, pullover) provides warmth and wicks away the damp. layer 3: The jacket protects you from outdoor conditions: rain, snow, wind. The outfit must be breathable to wick away damp.

Will my pants withstand regular use over a long period?

To check the durability of our products, we carry out tests on the components selected: resistance to rubbing and abrasion, colorfastness, resistance to repeated washing. All these tests have been carried out on the component used for these pants.

How does my product warranty work?

This product is guaranteed for 2 years from the date shown on the receipt. A product covered by the warranty will be exchanged free of charge. The warranty covers product defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and tear and improper use.

What is the environmental impact of the products and how can i compare them?

The product's environmental footprint is calculated over its entire lifespan using various indicators. A score is assigned, from A to E, to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with each other. Decathlon is committed to this approach. Find all our sustainable initiatives at



Product testing

We carry out 2 types of thermal tests: - a pants test material. - a test on a thermal mannequin in a thermal chamber. We reproduce temperatures, wind (3 mph) and damp that you will encounter during the mountains on a 3 mph walk. These tests enable us to confirm our design choices and adapt the thermal insulation where you need it most.

Storage instructions

Store in a dry, dark space. We recommend that you avoid harsh chemicals such as bleach, which can affect the thermal insulation of this clothing.
