Durable, hardworking, and environmentally conscious, the Mid Slim pants will be your go-to hiking trousers year after year.
Face it, hiking is tough on pants. This technical pair is designed to handle it, and keep you comfortably protected season after season. Made from heavy duty fabric sourced from recycled materials, they’re super durable and weather resistant, and supply extra stretch where you need it. They offer a slim fit, and a number of strategically-placed pockets for small trail essentials.
The main body of the trouser is made from a 4-way stretch, light weight material, very comfortable, and very adaptable on the trail, offering brilliant freedom of movement. So they excel at scrambles, rock climbing and hiking, fantastic all-rounders. The knees, rear, and back of the legs are made of a more robust, even more, hard-wearing fabric, these are the areas toughest on pants, and so they need reinforcement. Both of the main materials used, are recycled Polyamide, an extremely hard wearing, light fabric. I used these pants for 2 weeks solid, every day, day in and day out. I was amazed at how clean they stayed, they shed dirt incredibly well thanks to the Fluorocarbon-free DWR treatment. I like the Velcro strap around the hem, these can be used to sinch the trouser leg close to the ankle, vital in tick country. However, the pockets are, well they aren’t very generous, I couldn’t even comfortably get my phone in the front pockets, not that big of a deal as I could put it in my rucksack’s hip pocket, but something to bear in mind. The elasticated waist ensures a good fit, that still has a little give, and so never feel constrictive.- Reviewed by BasecampGear
