Very comfortable and excellent fitting.
These tracks may seem a bit pricey but you can use them as regular track pants for sports etc. They are comfy and makes the whole trek experience hassle free.
Comfy, stretches as required during the trek!
Dear Friends I am yoga therapist I use this product 10 hours day 4 days week it's got two years stitch warranty also so I use for all kind stretching Yoga asana I feel so comfortable it's really best shape also smooth feeling best quality esy to get it dry if I wet in rain I love it so much .
With warm regards
It is great in terms of comfort and fit. I like to wear all the time. I have used many products, but neither of them is as comfortable as it. But there are some disappointments
1) whenever I wash, color is coming out
2) the belt is of no use, it never keep tight
3) only one color is available. Decathlo India should provide some more color, as it is available in other countries
I used it for 2..3 times and there was a puncture in (small tiny hole) it. I believe it's due to the material defect in that area due to which puncture occurred, and as I know that it was not used that roughly. When I took it to Pune decathlon store for replacement, the manager said it is because it caught some where due to which small tiny hole save occured. I still cannot digest that it was because of material caught some where as it's relatively tight fit .I have been using such panst since 2013 which I bought in Bangalore they have not developed any defect and are still going on great due to which I bought this pant, however this pant which I purchased this year made me lose my faith in quality of products decathlon sells and the after sell service they provide. Really sad. Would not suggest this to any one in my personal and corporate circle
Thanks for your review on the Forclaz 500 Hiking Trousers. I am sorry to hear that you got a puncture in the fabric.
The 2013 trousers that you mentioned had a ripstop fabric that made them more resistant but slightly heavier and less stretchy therefore the new trousers came in and replaced the older model. The new Forclaz 500 trouseres are lighter, much more stretchy and comfortable but little less tougher as the previous one. For users who seek trousers for rugged use, we will be introducing soon the Forclaz 900 with a heavy duty fabric and water repellent finish along with stretch.
In the meantime, thanks to our customer satisfaction policy, you can return the product for an exchange or refund to your nearest decathlon store.
All Decathlon products come with a minimum warranty of 2 years against manufacturing faults and defects, therefore punctures or holes due to external objects are not covered in warranty.
I am at your disposal should you require any assistance.
Many thanks and regards,

Worth the purchase.
Must buy for hikers
Pockets, fit, comfort
Provides absolutely whatever proposed.
Excellent stretchable fabric and quick dry too..
All chain pockets and bottom lace for adjusting lenght is very usefull...
Great product will go for another pair.
used this trouser over a 5 day hike in the mountains. even in the 5degC temperatures with high wind chill, the trousers comfortably retained the heat.
Great at retaining heat; good ventilation; comfort
I used it for 3 months recently on a Himalayan Journey. They were quite comfortable but tore off from a few places around the ankle and back. The material is not satisfactory for this price.
Lightweight, Comfortable, Breathable
Fabric is of cheap quality
Thanks for sharing your feedback about the Forclaz 500 hiking trousers. I am sorry to know that the trousers tore off around ankle and back.
Like all other products from decathlon these trousers come with a minimum warranty of 2 years on manufacturing fault and defects therefore you can take the trousers to your nearest Decathlon store and get it exchanged should the tearing has happened because of any defect.
These pant feature a lighter and stretchy polyamide+elastane blend for greater freedom of movement and faster drying.
But if it is abrasion that has caused the tear and your needs require a more hard wearing fabric then I suggest you look at the Simond Alpinism pants. These pants are made of heavy duty softshell material, come with side vents, built-in removable gaiter and suspenders. They are also water repellent and wind resistant. I own these pants and absolutely love them.
I am available in case of any doubts.
Thanks and Regards,
