My thoughts: Patagonia Women’s Point Peak Trail Pants

There is a good choice of fit and colours, which is good to see. There is also some adjustability at the waist for an improved fit and at the hem. The fabric is stretchy for freedom of movement.

I am usually a fairly standard UK10 and I found the fit of the Patagonia UK10 trousers to be roomy. This is especially so at the hips and thighs. I would recommend going down a size.

I like that you can buy the trousers in different lengths. I have long legs and the 31″ are ideal.

It’s also good to see the product is Fair Trade certified and made with a PFC-free DWR. Patagonia is know for great eco-credentials.

It’s really useful to have DWR on outdoor trousers in case you are caught in light rain. The DWR works well in drizzle and that means you do to need to put on waterproof over-trousers immediately if it starts to rain.

The reinforced panels on the knees and seat are another bonus. These are the areas you are most likely to wear through, although I usually find my outdoor trousers fail at the pockets and hems before anything else wears out.

It’s very easy to like the trousers. They are comfortable, medium weight and well suited to walking trails and hills. I would probably reserve them for the shoulder seasons, of autumn to winter and winter to spring. In summer, I prefer a skort and, in winter, I move to wearing fleece-light tights.

The zipped pockets a re useful and the way they are designed into the trousers makes them flattering.

They are great casual trousers and this is when I have worn the Patagonia Women’s Point Peak Trail Pants the most. I like a pair of trousers for general wear, such as local walks, meeting friends at a pub or just in the house.

It’s good to have the versatility of being able to wear them casually and for outdoor activities.
