the convertible hiking trousers i got is amazing not just for the removable leg area thatr makes it a shorts but also the elasticity of the material which is not normally found in common hiking gear. It has very useful zippers that do not protrude and also have functional grips to get them in between movement. The trousers are not only for hiking - i find them perfect for a tough day at the office too!

Response of the brand
Hi Jainiti,
Thank you for your feedback on the Forclaz 500 convertible trousers. I am delighted to know that you are very happy with the trousers.
Currently this product does not exist in any other colour globally but I have forwarded your suggestion to the concerned team and they will look at developing these trousers in other colours.
Thanks,
Regards,

Used these for hikes and pretty much any sport activity when there are no changing rooms available. And by that I mean I'll wear shorts underneath. These trousers are nice and thin and stretchy. Very easy to convert to shorts by unzipped the "legs".
Great Trouses

Light weight, hard wearing and slightly elasticated. Bought 2 pairs for a hiking holiday in the lake district last August, and wore them almost everyday for the 2 weeks. Great that they can be turned into shorts too, and very comfortable. zips on pockets ensure all your personal items stay safe.

Bought a 3rd pair before an adventure weekend away in March and the water resistance helped with the muddy wet activities. Wash well and dry quickly

Bought these as a cheaper alternative to montane terra pants. Haven't used them in anger yet, but so far can't fault them. Comfortable to wear and a great fit, the fabric stretches really well and dosen't hinder movement, plenty of zip pockets for storage. I'll add move info once I've done Snowden in them.
Fit, comfort and price.
None so far.

Favorite Lightweight Hiking/Climbing Trousers
Used for 3 to 6 months
These pants are truly the best all-around pants I've ever used. I love that they're tight enough to wear alone, or with a layer underneath for early-morning treks (wouldn't wear in excessive rain or cold). My only minor complaint would be that, while the removable pant legs are cleverly color-coded, there is some red stitching below each pocket. If one of these pockets were label red and the other green, providing a quick reference to which pant leg goes to which side, that would make this an absolutely PERFECT product. I can't go on a trip without these.
