Royal Robbins Men’s Myriad/Women’s Discovery
+ Sturdy waist popper and a flattering cut, with three mesh-lined pockets (one zipped) for ventilation. A fast-drying trouser made from textured stretch nylon.
– Aesthetically speaking, we didn’t like the seams that run down the front and back of each leg on the Discovery trousers.
VERDICT: In spite of all their high-tech qualities, these trousers can still pass muster on the high street. Well designed and thought out, they’re great for hiking, travelling and even everyday use.
