Used on three treks, one multi day trek in monsoon. Dries quickly. The pant keeps slipping as elastic doesn't hold it in place; this becomes a nuisance. The side pockets could've been deeper and valuable can be kept in the thigh pocket which has Velcro. I liked the fit it this pant very much. I noticed the fit is not the same as other models of same size, so one has to make sure the size fits correctly.
I use the trousers for hiking in the Mahrashtra hills and a bit running sometimes. They are very light, yet durable enough to run through some higher grass or small bushes.
The right pocket down at the leg is nice for change. The side pockets are dangerous for your belongings. As long as you walk it is fine, but sitting in a car or motorcycle, prepare to loose your stuff. I was lucky my phone got stuck between the door and car seat. Removing one star for that.
It's really not rocket science to make pockets keep what they should keep. Get someone on that. Won't buy them again for that issue only. Otherwise they are fine.
Very Comfortable in hot weather
Only one belt post.
Single Beltpost makes it hard to use belts
Dear Mr. Varun Nair E-Sport Manager DECATHLON, Good to see your response. After me, my son [15 yrs] has picked up a color each[Grey & Beige]. Please introduce other Hiking colors like Green/Black/Navy Blue/Khakhi/White or any others you'll can think of. I have stopped wearing Jeans as these are so light-weight and comfortable. I wear formal Trousers only if its utmost necessary so more colors please.
Can add a Thigh pocked on the left & a back pocket on right just to balance out the look. But its Important to add a Flap/Velcro/Button/Zip to the Hip pockets as a Cell Phone tends to fall off if your sitting. One thigh pocket is not enough for Wallet & Cell. Email me when new colors are introduced.
Light Weight, Comfort, Quick Dry
WHY JUST TWO COLORS
Elasticated waist is not up to handling a phone or wallet. It keeps slipping. Just adding a few belt loops would have done the job. Also wish it had thigh pockets on both sides.
Material, fit and finish, looks
Just one belt loop at the back. Pointless
The material is quite good and comfortable enough for day long wear. The elastic at the waist could have been slightly tighter. The waist starts to slip if you carry a purse or phone in the pockets.
material is very poor quality , non comfortable , the fittings are also poor ! just like payjamas
material is very poor quality , non comfortable ,
