RRP £130 Tar­get price £110

For the step up in price at this end of the mar­ket, Haglöfs give you a rugged and durable piece of kit equipped for se­ri­ous out­door ad­ven­ture. The Mid II Flexes use a four-way stretch fab­ric and an elas­ti­cated waist­band, which al­lows a great range of move­ment and makes them very comfy. There are hand­warmer pock­ets as well as zip­pered cargo pock­ets, and the an­kles can be ex­panded by a zip ad­just­ment. Best of all is the weath­er­proof­ing: the DWR fin­ish fended off a heavy shower dur­ing my Ex­moor jaunt, and kept out a strong wind too. These are mountain-ready trousers, sure to keep you warm and dry in ev­ery­thing ex­cept pro­longed heavy rain. No vent zips, but the Cli­matic polyamide fab­ric is highly breath­able and dries quickly. Slightly heav­ier than the other trousers on test, the Mid II Flexes are made of prop­erly strong stuff and will get you through years of walk­ing. How much they de­serve their price tag will de­pend on how of­ten you put them through their paces.
