The slim, athletic fit improves moisture movement, while enabling you to place your feet with accuracy and confidence. As our lightest double-weave fabric, the 133gsm Matrix™ softshell is also optimised for comfort on challenging ascents. The lofted internal fibres wick moisture fast and the tightly woven external structure provides excellent wind, abrasion and weather protection, as well as rapid evaporation of transferred moisture. In addition to articulated knees and a diamond gusset, the fabric also offers generous four-way stretch for unimpeded climbing mobility.

With a reinforced hem, robust kick patches and twin-needle seams, this is the ideal partner for tough summer climbs and long, hot multi-pitch routes.

Good in moderate conditions

Good flat waistband, nothing that bunches up or pinches under the pack's hip band. The top of the slant pockets is too high up, so you can't pull down the zips and the pockets have to stay open when you have a pack on, and the pocket opening is small.

Good material, durable, wind resistant, legs not too sticky in fifteen-degree (Celsius) temperatures. Good manufacturing quality, seams are good, zips seem good quality so far. Comfortable crotch and knees. Calf scuff patches are appreciated but the calves get pretty wet when walking through ferns and undergrowth. Burrs stick to the material but hook grass seeds don't seem to, so far. Mud washes off easily.

Sizing is accurate: I'm a medium, and bought medium/regular length.

Will probably buy again despite preferring vertical seam pockets to slant pockets.
