Berghaus women’s Tirrios Pant are described as being a “hardwearing new softshell for cold conditions in the hills and mountains”. They are for “extended use during a variety of activities” and “combine a high performance fabric with essential features to deliver comfort and protection for winter adventures”.

As part of Berghaus’ MADEKIND commitment to making more sustainable products, the Tirrios Pant uses more than 50% recycled materials and a PFC-free durable water repellent finish on the face.

Features include:

  • Performance fit: Stretchy softshell fabric
  • Brush backed fabric
  • Articulation: Darted knees for freedom of movement
    Eco friendly: Contain green MADEKIND® fabric (50% recycled fabric) and PFC Free DWR
  • 2 zipped hand pockets
  • Zipped ankles
  • Belt
  • Sizes: UK8 to 20
  • Weight: 305g (UK12)
  • RRP: £90, although I have seen them for sale at a cheaper price.
  • See Berghaus and buy from the Berghaus store on Amazon. (I receive a small commission for sales through Amazon.)

On test: Berghaus women’s Tirrios walking trousers

I asked my friend Yvonne to test the Tirrios walking trousers. I am somewhere between a UK10 and UK12 but she found the UK10 fitted her perfectly.

Yvonne has spent many hours walking in the trousers, in dry and wet conditions.

She says: ‘The trousers are so comfy and easy to wear. I was worried they might be too warm because of the brushed back fabric but they feel perfect. The are warm yet still lightweight feeling.

“The fabric has a water repellent treatment so that keeps a lot of wet off them but they also dry really quickly if they get a soaking.

“The fit is lovely and while neat fitting they are comfortable and stretchy. There are also wee zips at the ankle, which are useful when putting on or taking off the trousers.

“The trousers are great for a Scottish winter, especially if you like walking in the hills and mountains.”
