/ Suggest my the best treking light summer pants
Please suggest my the best treking light summer pants for alpine terrain from 1000 to 3000 m.
Water repellent, wind stops but mostly breathable..
ME Stretchlite Guide would fit your bill. The Haglofs Lite Trek are worth considering but they're a lighter weight material so not sure how they'd fair at >1k.
Arcteryx gamma light, Columbia Titaniums (brilliant - my favourite) or Salomon Wayfarers.
None of them cheap mind!
Thank you! The price is no problem! I like the best for my ! no heavier than 350 gr. Athletic model...
Can you link to the exact model pantс, please...
I can recommend the Titaniums. Another pair for overall stretch is the Keela Scuffer.
Is Titaniums becomes for warm weather 25-30 Celsius?
Worn them in 30 plus with no issues. Baggy enough for air circulation and very light. Well thought out design and good pocket design too. And no I don't work for Columbia (though if anyone does and is reading this would love a free pair!)
I'm interested in this pants - Columbia Titanium Dolomite Pant. I am looking for review in the internet but can not find... do you have a link?
How much do you want to spend and how brand obsessed are you ? because any trekking trousers from GO outdoors will do the job - as will the old favourite Ron Hills
100-150 Euro maybe... I am choose between Karpos Far Pants Grey Man http://www.trekkinn.com/outdoor-mountain/karpos-far-pants-grey-man/136983/p
and TERRA PACK PANTS http://www.montane.co.uk/range/men/legwear/terra-pack-pants
Haven't got the Terra pack pants. The ordinary Terras are very nice. However, the legs are short. I have stopped wearing my Terras as the legs in size L are far too short. Montane supposedly make log leg versions, but nobody stocks them.
I am 6ft 2" with 34" inside leg. Equivalent Rab trousers have legs that are long enough for me.
I love my Montura Vertigo Light pants, hard to come by in the UK tho...
Is it http://www.bergfreunde.de/montura-vertigo-light-pants-berghose/ ?
I like my arc'teryx gamma rock pants.
Thanks for the suggestion! But I am looking for pants for maximum warm weather + 40 degrees Celsius!
Yes indeed! They worked for me in a wide range of conditions: from California in may, to the Alps in august and Cogne in january!
Im always on the lookout for similar trousers - i run very, very warm indeed and here in Austria its not unusual to have temperatures nearing 40*...! In the last few months ive bought:
1) Craghopper Nosilife Lite
Nice trousers. Very, very light so great for really hot weather. Havent had time to test out the anti-mozzie thing. One zipped inner pocket which is always good. Wold definitely replace if lost.
2) Montane Terra Pack; kinda disappointed with these as i had high hopes for them. Great for keeping cool and low weight/bulk for travelling but the cut and construction is kinda wierd. They seem to want to point to a point about a foot behind you, they seem to pull on the front of the thigh...i got a short leg, which at only 5'8 is reasonable, so maybe a medium might not have these wierd fit problems. WOuld not replace at full price or risk mail order without trying first.
3)Quechua Forclaz 100
Love them! Its been 35+ here this week and they have been fantastic. Good fit, not excessively baggy but loose enough for air to circulate. The hand pockets could really do with a zip but theyre so good i might take them to my local Turkish tailor to put some in. Incredible value at 15 quid. Havent given them any abuse yet but the stitching seems good. Would replace even if i didnt lose them - ive ordered another two pairs within a week.
Hope this helps!!
Haglofs Intense series?
Have a look in Decathlon at the trousers by Simond,about 40 quid,the same as big brand ones that go for over 100.
Thank you :)
Decathlon hiking trousers
I've got two pairs and they are perfect. Quick drying and stretch material.
Great value for money
