These trousers are great for hiking and bike touring alike. I’ve used them for both. For ultra marathons it’s good to know you can whip the legs off if it’s too hot for trousers – I’ve not had to do that yet but you never know. They pack up really small so ideal leisure trousers for hiking and camping. They are very strong and tear proof so they’ll last for years.
