/ Softshell trousers
I've looked at the mountain equipment G2 Ultimate mountains pants http://www.mountain-equipment.co.uk/the_gear/clothing/softshell/g2_ultimate_mountain_pant---265/
Any suggestions would be great?
For years, i've worn Mammut base jump pants with a pair of Lowe alpine long johns underneath. Excellent for winter walking/ climbing. Not too hot or cold and I carry a lightweight pair of waterproofs to throw on if they start to get really wet.
i've got cascada walking trousers, and Aspira salopettes for winter rough stuff - difficult to imagine a less clammy, plasticy-feel of weatherproof tousers...
I would recommend the G2 pants as i've had mine for a few years and they still look like new and keep me warm and dry.
they are as good as Patagonia Guide pants that he paid £130 for.
Side vents built in gaiters, reinforced knees and inner calf/ankle, braces
Agree with the Decathlon trousers recommendation. Just try finding them on the Decathlon website... Fortunately, I found a link that works; seems they've been re-branded as Simond:
