I had purchased these pants almost 2 months ago.
After wearing it just for 3-5 times the pant gets some spots on it as if some chemical had been poured on it. I purchased a black and a cream trousers.
The the black one gets white spots and the cream one gets neon coloured spots.
It's unbelievable to understand how does that happen. Secondaly the color and the shine went away with the first wash. I wish if i could get a refund or an exchange for a better product.
Unfortunately the bill is no more with me to claim a refund or to tell the store about the product.
Not satisfied with the product.

as others noticed, I too noticed the color fading issue.
Assuming Decathlon products are of high quality I purchased 2 of these trousers. Now I am regretting. Fit wise i am satisfied, color fading is the only concern to me.

I bought this on decathlon store Calicut. The colour was fading on every wash, and now it looks old, its only 4 months old...

I have been using this product since a year, I had purchased the beige coulored pant. As days past with washing it's colour kept fading. Another point to be noted is, it cannot hold things, not even a thing of a size of a wallet, and even if you fit it it's impossible to walk. This was my first pair of clothing from Decathlon and was fairly disappointed with the quailty. Along with that one of the belt loops' thread kept on coming out, and now I am left with one belt loop short, being bought one size bigger, it's a struggle for me to use a belt with this pant.

Comfortable and nice product
I bought this from Decathlon Anubhava 2 months ago. Recently, the pant tore in the place where I had ironed it and to my surprise, the personnel at the store told me I wasn't supposed to iron it. Are you serious?? You ask me not to iron my hiking pant just because mine tore due to poor quality material?! No replacement or refund was offered. I've been a customer since long but this is not the attitude I was expecting
i had bought the same stuff some few months back. the quality seems off and the sizing is way off. follow traditional sizing's please instead of homogenization and maximizing profit by making generalized product for the entire masses.
I have been using these for lowland hikes and dog walking for just under a year and have found that they have shrunk a little, despite following the care instructions. As a keen cyclist I have larger thighs than most, which is where these fall down - i struggle to walk up stairs as these are too tight around the thigh. Fit OK at the waist (I'm a 34) and the next size up (37) is way too big. Why the jump from 34 to 37 inch waist?
I struggle buying jeans so I'm always looking for an alternative, I bought these a couple of years ago and I love them, I have large legs and buying jeans is a nightmare, although these trousers are shaped they are so comfortable, I will be buying more this week.
I bought these as a pair of functional trousers I could wear for commuting by bike as well as being presentable enough to wear when working. As they're polycotton, they're ideal for wet weather as they dry quickly and don't cling as much as cotton when it's wet. They're nicely cut -appearance-wise - as well as having articulated knees for more active wear. The small pocket over the thigh is a little naff but discreet enough.
Unfortunately, the seams around the crotch are stitched very weakly and gave way after less than a day of my wearing them. This was partly due to the design of the pockets which can't really accommodate much (e.g. a wallet) before a lot of stress starts to be placed on the seams. I bought a size 32W, a size larger than I usually wear, but this issue occurred anyway. For a product that is marketed as being for active wear, it's ridiculous that those seams didn't hold and weren't stitched better and that there isn't more room across the groin area. It's a shame as otherwise they are nice pair of trousers. I'll see how I get on with a needle and thread...
