These trousers were reasonable priced and great quality. No flash big name price but just as good quality. They are comfy and hard wearing and withstood the elements when I needed them to.
Very light and very comfortable
I've been wearing these trousers and the matching shorts for work as a triathlon and open water swimming coach for the last 4 years. They are hardwearing yet light and comfy to wear. The are superb in all weathers as they dry out quickly and are quite windproof. I love the reinforced knees and bum. The material also stretches as you move so never feel uncomfortable.
Over the years they style and aesthetics have changed a little but they just keep getting better.
really like these. very light weight comfy. don't even know i have them on perfect for 3 season walking. only one negative is the sizes. i am 30/32 waist depending on product but leg sizes are big should do with a 29 /31 range. have to wear my hiking boots al the time so they don't drag on the floor .. but i do like them
Comfortable, light, and look like they should be hardwearing.
There are a couple of negatives. I have a pair of the previous version of the Forclaz that has a zip pocket on the thigh which I found perfect for keeping my passport (in an Aloksak resealable bag) plus travel tickets. The new version also has a zip pocket on the thigh but it doesn't work as well. I think the pocket is the same size, but the cut of the trousers means that the passport sits awkwardly.
Also is there any chance of a version with a shorter leg? I take a 32-inch waist and 32-inch inside leg in jeans - the Decathlon trousers are just a bit too long and it's a pain to have to keep rolling the legs up.
NOTE THAT WHILE THE PICTURES ARE ACCURATE, THE VIDEO SEEMS TO SHOW A PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE PRODUCT. I HAVE REPORTED THIS AND HOPEFULLY DECATHLON WILL CORRECT THIS.
Bought these trousers over 12 months ago and they are used on a regular basis. Lightweight, durable and with the extra lined knees for protection when scrambling, these are still in the same condition as when I bought them. Great for fair weather trekking, although a thicker pair are definitely recommended for winter!
