These pants are really lightweight and stretchy but still hard wearing making them perfect for the outdoors. They are fast-drying, have UV protection and plenty of pockets so they can cope with fast ascents, hard days in the hills or just chilling out around camp.
These elastic hiking pants are made from a robust and abrasion-resistant nylon material. The pants are fully equipped with zipper pockets. There is also space for a hiking map in the side pocket. UPF 30+ UV protection.
Mammut's Runbold Pants are built for outdoor activities. After much use they have proved to be much more robust and hard wearing than they initially appear. The light, stretchy fabrics don't look like they will stand up to much but looks are definitely deceiving in this case. The breathable, fast drying fabric is great for dealing with warm weather and showers and these are some of the most comfortable pants I've used. The four good sized, zip pockets and strong belt loops are also practical features that make these pants so good.
The Runbold Pants don't provide much in the way of insulation and aren't designed for winter conditions as the lightweight materials would suggest. I have worn these on colder days in the hills and they've been fine when walking but they perform much better in warmer weather and this is when the breathability and quick-drying abilities really shine through.
