Versatile trousers. Very good. Does need something on the bottom of the leg zips to keep them shut. Otherwise really good. Decathlon note the need for a mod. then they would be 5 stars.

Ok hiking pants

I have two pair of these trousers in different colors, but have the same issue, they snag on branches and the fabric pulls and shows weave damage in the front groin area. The fabric does not hold up well in my opinion. They do dry very fast which is helpful.

Pretty good summer walking trousers

Lightweight and quick drying. They convert very easily to become shorts, although not sure how long the zips will last, and unzip along the side of your legs so you can take them off without removing shoes. I’ve used them on a few (very hot) stages of the South Downs Way, and they performed well. Useful pockets and a good length.

Great trousers, a bit thin though

I found the trousers really comfortable and stretchy. The fabric feels really nice on the body. However, it's a bit thin so I don' t think it's a universal pair of trousers for cold and warm weather. Also, it's a bit disappointing that it has SOME parts water repellant and some parts not. What's the point. If it rains, even if it's lightly, I'll still get wet. Still overall, pretty nice trousers. Let's see how long they last :)

Additional Product Information


Main fabric: 100.0% Polyamide ; Yoke: 88.0% Polyamide, 12.0% Spandex ; Lining: 100.0% Polyethylene Terephtalate ; Gusset: 85.0% Polyamide, 15.0% Spandex

How are the dark grey and beige models eco-designed?

For the dark grey and beige coloured pairs of trousers, we used a mass pigmentation process called dope dyed. This process incorporates the colour pigments from the initial thread manufacture to reduce water consumption. As a result, we reduced the carbon emissions by 26.8% for the dark grey version and by 12.8% for beige version.

Hybrid structure

Trousers designed with 2 different components: - a durable fabric (207 g/m²) on the areas that need protection from abrasion (seat, bottom of the legs at the front). This fabric also has stretch properties. This gives you plenty of freedom of movement. - a lightweight and breathable fabric (125 g/m²) on the rest of the trousers.


2 zipped hand pockets2 zipped thigh pockets (and 1 mesh patch pocket on the inside of the right pocket)1 zipped pocket at the backElastic tightening system at the ankles for a perfect fit of the trousers over the boot. Trousers sold with a belt.

What is the water repellent feature of the component?

These trousers have water repellent inserts (bottom of the legs at the front, seat) that make water run off the surface of the fabric. Please note, this does not mean WATERPROOF. The water repellent property prevents the trousers from getting wet too fast but will not keep you dry under steady rain. To do this, you will need a pair of over-trousers like the MT500 model (ref. 8493660). The water-repellent properties can be restored by warming the trousers in a tumble dryer at low heat for 10 minutes

Sizing information

Inside leg of the shorts: 27.4 cm in size 36 (L)Width of trouser hem: 21.3 cm in size 36 (L)Width of shorts hem: 26.4 cm in size 36 (L)
